Here's the first look at UST Mamiya's new "Recoil" Graphite Iron shaft that was spotted on the range at the McGladrey Classic.



More Information about Recoil from UST Mamiya:



Recoil is a revolutionary design concept for Iron shafts that incorporates state of the art composite materials and over 30 years of golf shaft design experience. UST Mamiya engineers have uncovered the secret to designing an iron shaft using carbon fiber that exceeds the performance of traditional steel shafts and previous carbon fiber shaft designs.



For years engineers have tried to develop carbon fiber shafts that could matchup to steel, but they usually failed because of the weight constraints and lack of engineering ingenuity. The reason for their failure was due to poor material alternatives and poor design methodologies.



The conventional graphite shaft designs were constrained due to weight. In order to create a heavy carbon fiber shaft, engineers used heavy weight carbon fiber material which had very poor dynamic properties and would cause the shaft to feel dead and non-reactive to a golfers swing. The most common design method for adding more weight was to increase the quantity of angle layers. This was the cause of very poor recoil properties and resulted in bad feel or dead feel, and poor playability in iron shots that resulted in poor distance, trajectory and accuracy control.



The wall construction was too thick and the material properties not favorable in producing dynamic recoil within the walls of the shaft. Recoil™ iron shafts has a much thinner "angle" layers, the angle layer is the most important part of creating the recoil effect.



Recoil iron shafts has been able to maintain both the heavy weight and very active recoil properties such as hoop stiffness and active modulus properties by adding more "straight" layers and utilizing high-density material and reducing angle layers.



Features and Benefits:
  • Recoil technology allows the golfer to load and unload the shaft better on both partial and full shots, which results in better:
    • Trajectory control
    • Distance control
    • The shaft is redirecting the energy to the ball and is also transferring stored energy from the golfer to the ball. This increases the spring effect (recoil) in the walls of the shaft for efficient energy transferred to the ball for increased velocity and greater distance.
    • Composite material construction for enhanced feel and feedback
      • Higher damping rate = better feel
      • Less stress on joints in the hands, wrists and elbows
      • Recoil™ iron shafts have a premium ION plating for a similar look to steel for easier transition from traditional steel shafts to recoil™ graphite iron shafts.




Here is a list of all available shafts:
  • Recoil Tour Prototype 110S, 125S and 125X (0.355” tapered)
  • Recoil Tour 95R, 95S, 110S, 110X, 125S and 125X (0.355” tapered)
  • Recoil 800 series (50g, 60g, 70g, 80g, 90g - 0.370” parallel)
  • Recoil 600 series (65g, 75g, 85g - 0.370” parallel)


Recoil Prototype and Tour
  • Better players looking for great feel and the ability to work the ball
  • Lower balance, higher flex point
  • Heavier weights with firmer tip for lower flight


Recoil 800 series
  • Players looking for a lighter weight option with great feel and the ability to work the ball
  • Optimum weight and flex profile to fit wide range of golfers
  • Mid-Balance, medium tip for medium Ball flight


Recoil 600 series
  • Great feel and lightweight options to increase club head speed for greater distance
  • Lighter weights for faster club speed
  • Medium to medium high ball flight


Recoil Tour Prototype are available now through the Tour and UST's TOURSPX dealer network. The Recoil Tour Series will be available around the 2013 PGA Show. The Recoil 800 Series is available now through UST's TOURSPX dealer network, and the Recoil 600 Series will be available through retail channels next month.

    Cool looking shaft. I like the fact they made them ion plated so as to keep a similar appearance to steel shafted clubs. Will certainly make any possible transition a bit easier.



    EDIT: What clubhead is that on the shaft in the second to last picture? Is that what the Callaway Utility looks like shafted up by chance?

    Wow, these shafts sound exactly what I was looking for! I would love to compare to the aero tech steel fibers! Anyone know price point?
  • FrenchmanFrenchman Members Posts: 60
    Ok, you're peaked my interest. How much? And when/where can I try them?
  • Sean25rpSean25rp Members Posts: 3,007
    These look great! I agree about the finish making them look more like an iron shaft. I would give these a shot I think.

    as the OEM's suffer to find new ways to make clubs longer and longer, especially the irons... here is a sure fire trend in the making... Mark these words, with shafts like these it wont be long till there is OEM's offering as an option for better players that they agressivly push on us... JAT

    Thanks for the info. There is a dealer in my area. I'd love to give this shaft a go!

    I'd be interested. I'm getting older and less limber and a lighter shaft would add an MPH or two yeah?
  • wcbjrwcbjr Members Posts: 2,810 ✭✭
    Now I need to buy 8 or more $400 shafts? Awesome.





    I'll stick to my X100's.
  • wcbjrwcbjr Members Posts: 2,810 ✭✭
    And if they come back and say that the complete set is $400, then why the heck are single driver shafts $400? This better reduce the cost of driver, fairway and hybrid shafts.

    We all know that graphite is pretty expensive. However, the flexibility and customization options you have with graphite, make this, in my opinion, pretty groundbreaking. The chief complaint and stereotype of graphite shafts are that they are inconsistent from shaft to shaft. This will go a long way in eliminating that.



    I'm sure these will not be cheap. There are a lot of people that actually prefer graphite, and many like myself that actually need graphite keep us in the game.



    That being said, I hope to have mine within a month or so.

    I'd be interested in how these would compare to my steelfibers for sure. They would seem to be hard to beat but maybe comparable.

    Man, these look awesome! I just started using the IHS991 Spin Proto wedge shafts and they are great. Very solid feeling with decent spin. I didn't notice a big spin difference between my Aldila VS Proto 100, but the feel of the UST is 100% more solid. They also seem to be a little more counter balanced than the Aldila. I need to start saving my pennies to try and get a set of 125S Recoils!

    Lol at a complete set of industry leading True Tempers costing as much as a single one of these shafts.



    Wish I had that kinda coin to spend.

    I'm sure once they become readily available that you will be able to find deals on them. Just like with any other shaft that's on the market.
