Element 21 Golf Company (E21) (OTC BB: EGLF) reported today that the Company, in association with The Media Group, will host an invitation-only press conference at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show on Thursday January 26, at the Orange County Convention Center. At the press conference, Dr. Howard Butler will present the technology behind the Scandium “Shock” driver that has quickly generated media and industry attention.
“What Defines the Ultimate Driver Head of the Future” details creation of the first Scandium driver using the Enhanced Performance Integration Code developed by the Golf Science Consultants. The presentation illustrates effects of face bulge and roll optimization on ball flight, optimization of toe up/down oscillation at impact through maximizing moments of inertia to proposed USGA limits, attenuation of high frequency vibration and dispersion patterns of E21 Shock Driver.
“We are extremely pleased with the results of the ‘Shock’ driver,” commented Dr. Butler. “It has exceeded our expectations in all areas of performance including distance, accuracy and feel.”
Dr. Butler summarizes the “Shock” driver as follows:
- 1. Lower head vibration on off-center hits because of principle axis orientation;
- 2. Mass moment of inertia on the cusp of USGA proposed limits, providing the largest sweet spot possible;
- 3. A COR rating at the USGA limit providing an extremely hot face without being non-conforming;
- 4. Optimized face curvatures to minimize shot dispersion resulting in incredible accuracy off the tee.
Element 21 Golf Company holds the exclusive rights to proprietary Scandium Metal Alloy, used in manufacture of the new driver, as well as a sophisticated multi technology production path. Scandium Alloy is 55% lighter and offers 25% strength-to-weight advantage over Titanium alloys, which are the current standards of the Golf Equipment Industry. The advanced dynamics of Scandium and the material economics offer a performance-enhanced alternative to manufacturing driver clubs with Titanium, which is by far the largest segment of the annual 4 billion dollar golf equipment marketplace.
“Driver clubs can generate more brand awareness than any other club in the golfer’s bag, and may promote sales of E21 new scandium-shafted line of irons, hybrids, wedges and putters. New Scandium ‘Shock’ Driver represents a fruition of dreams and combined technical effort of many people with roots in Toronto, Canada, and Maryland, USA, dating back to 1995. We are thankful to all of our supporters on this long and winding road…” commented Dr. Nataliya Hearn, President and CEO of Element 21 Golf Company.
