Element 21 Golf Receives a Players' Choice Award from Pub Links Golfer Magazine

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 14, 2005 -- Element 21 Golf Company (OTC BB: EGLF) announced today that it is now selling full iron sets to retailers, golf pro shops and its shareholders. For more information on purchasing these initial production sets, call 949-453-1021.

Management also announced that Pub Links Golfer Magazine recently announced the recipients of its Players' Choice Awards in their Spring 2005 issue, in which 22 companies submitted irons for the magazine's Annual Hands On Player Testing. Element 21 Golf's new E21 irons received an Honorable Mention Players' Choice Award in the "Best Feel" category. This Hands On player testing is conducted throughout the country by amateurs who rank the equipment they test in 5 separate categories; Appearance, Feel, Forgiveness, Consistency, Distance, & Value. Element 21Golf's new E21 Scandium Performance System Irons were tested along with irons from 22 other companies including: Nike, Mizuno, Callaway, Ping, Taylor Made, Wilson, and Ben Hogan to mention a few. The E21 Irons received an extremely favorable 7.7 Overall Performance Rating amongst all equipment tested.

The E21 irons outperformed many of the major manufacturers in several categories. Complete test results are available in the Spring 2005 issue of Pub Links Golfer Magazine. This award is just one of the many accolades that Element 21 Golf has received since their debut at the 2005 PGA Merchandise show this past January.

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 with the introduction of a brand-new material, Scandium E21 Metal. 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 Golf Company's new E21 Metal Performance System™ clubs with SHOCK-BLOK™ Technology are unlike anything else on the market today. The club incorporates an 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 new technology caused quite a "stir" at the PGA Merchandise Show and Element 21 has had several articles written about them and their new technology in golf publications like Golfweek, Golf Tips,, Mid Ohio Golfer,, Golf Today and others. These articles are posted on Element 21's website at under the News & Reviews section.

"We have a very different approach to the golf industry than most manufacturers," said Nataliya Hearn, CEO of Element 21 Golf. "Most of us have engineering backgrounds and are used to working with and maximizing the performance of a material. Scandium is unlike anything else on the market right now and has outperformed titanium, steel and graphite in several performance categories. Competing with and outperforming the larger manufacturers at such an early stage like this is a very good sign. We are very excited about what the future holds for this new material, the new technology and the performance it will provide to golfers all over the world."

Element 21™ is now offering its E21 Scandium Performance System Irons (3 thru SW) with the Eagle One Scandium shafts with SHOCK BLOK Technology and a stainless steel head through their website at Production of a full Scandium iron club head, a Scandium Driver, and Scandium Hybrids is already underway and will be available to the public later this year.
