About The Element 21 Eagle One Scandium Shafts

Element 21's Scandium Alloy shafts are manufactured using a proprietary 25-step production process to create a seamless, extruded shaft. Variable wall thickness and the alloy's high tensile strength result in a vibration dampening system called ShockBlok™, with 270% better shock attenuation than steel shafts, that protects golfers' bodies, bones and joints. Each Element 21 shaft is made from a single piece of Scandium Alloy resulting in unmatched consistency from club to club as well as unprecedented accuracy and an industry leading torque of as low as 1.4 degrees.

About The Emc2 Hybrids

The sleek design of the Scandium-driven Emc2 Hybrids boasts minimum crown thickness allowing for maximum CG specifications. The Crown Louvers serve as an exceptional alignment aid for improved accuracy. The low weighting internally of the clubs provides a low center of gravity resulting in ease of launching. The open face angle enables a wide range of players to control a straighter shot pattern.

About the Emc2 Driver

In recent robotic testing, e21's Emc2 Scandium driver outperformed the top three selling Titanium drivers in the marketplace in both distance and accuracy. In off-center heel and toe hits, Emc2 recorded an average carry dispersion of 8 feet, beating the competition by an unprecedented 263%, 288% and 338%. During distance testing the longest drive of the day was 274 yards recorded by Emc2, 29 yards longer than one of its competitors' longest drives.
