    ELEMENT 21 GOLF SET TO INTRODUCE REVOLUTIONARY NEW MATERIAL - SCANDIUM TO THE GOLF INDUSTRY




    Irvine, CA - The Element 21 Golf Company announced that it will be introducing a revolutionary new material - Scandium, the 21st Element of the PeriodicTable, to members of the golf media at the upcoming Spring ING Conference held at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida May 22nd thru the 26th.

    "Titanium may very well go the way of the persimmon driver once the golf industry gets an opportunity to experience the benefits this brand new material has to offer," said Nataliya Hearn, CEO & President of E21 Golf.

    Advancements in strength to weight efficiencies have been brought to the U.S. out of Russian aerospace research programs by the Element 21 Golf Company (NASDAQ EGLF.OB) with the introduction of a brand new material, Scandium. The E21 Metal provides the highest Strength-to-Weight Ratio of any material used in golf today with a 36% Strength-to-Weight Advantage over Titanium and a 40% Strength-to-Weight Advantage over Graphite.

    Element 21 will also be unveiling a 24 kt. Gold Plated Limited Edition set of E21 irons that retail for an amazing $15,000.00 making them the most expensive set of irons in the United States. "We originally made up a set of the 24 kt. Gold irons to demonstrate the value of Scandium vs. other materials currently being used in the golf industry," said Hearn, "but once the word got out we began getting requests for them. I'm not at liberty to discuss the names of the people who have purchased these Limited Edition sets, which total four at this time, but I'm sure they'll make for some interesting conversation on the tee box."

    Element 21 Golf's new Scandium E21 Metal Performance SystemTM clubs with SHOCK-BLOKTM Technology are unlike anything else on the market right now.

    The club incorporates a Scandium E21 Metal shaft that:

    1. Redirects the vibration normally felt in the hands and arms back to the club head (thus giving an extra "energy-kick" to the golf ball and subsequently increasing distance).

    2. Maintains a crystal clear signature of the contact between the club head and the golf ball providing the golfer with a "softer feel" and unprecedented control over every shot.

    This is the first major advancement in materials in the golf industry in over 20 years. The E21 Metal Performance SystemTM clubs from Element 21 Golf have demonstrated superiority over both graphite and steel in independent testing by producing shots up to 30 yards longer. Engineers at Element 21 Golf attribute this performance improvement not just to the lively head design but also to the highly responsive E21 Metal shaft. In today's market it is very difficult to push the performance of a head since rebound velocities are limited by USGA regulations. The key, therefore, is in the shaft. The shaft design must allow the shaft to recover from the initiation of a swing where the moment of inertia, resisted by the heads weight, imposes a backward bend in the shaft. The shaft must recover just before the club head strikes the ball in order to impose the greatest impact force resulting in the balls' projection and ultimate distance. Element 21 Golf Company has tuned the shaft design for maximum performance through their proprietary E21 Metal System chemistry. Since the alloy is of a homogenous structure and posses extremely fine crystalline grains, the potential resistive energy imposed during a swing is not lost. Such losses are found in graphite/epoxy composite type construction where the epoxy matrix cannot translate the load forces that the graphite fibers resist. Element 21 Golf Company is a U.S. Corporation with offices in Irvine California, and Toronto, ONT.

      Sounds like I should train myself to hit it thin and off the toe consistently to get that extra yardage

        Based things about this metal found all over the net, and someone with more money than brains wanting to buy these clubs great for them.

        Good luck to this company if they are going to mass produce a product with materials that are easier to find on the sun and moon than earth.

          I am not a physicist but considering the ball contacts the clubhead for a micro-second, I am not sure this is possible. Like the new tee designers claiming they add distance, it's just not physically possible, nor allowed by the rules of golf.
          This company is not the first to have claimed to changed the game with a new technology. We will see.

            I have hit these clubs just the other day. Man, not only are they forgiving but doi they ever feel great. I am looking into getting some shafts to sell as well as put into a set of irons for myself. These could be the next hot thing but they are still very pricy, almost too pricy for most golfers.

            These will be the rich man's clubs for the next little while.

              What do they feel like? Soft-forged or hard titanium?

                Soft forged with a great response out of the shaft as well.
