Element 21 Scandium Metal Alloy Shafts Now Available Online

IRVINE, CA and TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 24, 2005 -- Element 21 Golf Company (E21) (OTC BB: EGLF) announced that its proprietary scandium metal alloy shafts are now available online through The GolfWorks web site ( and through their catalog distributed to club builders internationally.

Golf industry professionals are familiar with the fact that the most important component of a golf club is the shaft. Robotic tests as well as player testing have repeatedly demonstrated that the E21 scandium metal alloy shafts are 10% longer and 15% more accurate than competitive products. Importantly, the proprietary ShockBlok technology significantly reduces the transfer of shock back into the player's hands, while simultaneously providing unprecedented feel.

Club makers worldwide now have access to this leading edge technology. E21's sales experience to date indicates that once exposed to the superior performance and consistency of the E21 Eagle One Pro and Tour shafts, professionals are quickly converted into believers, and repeat orders quickly follow.

E21 products' superior performance is due to the state-of-the-art engineering and proprietary manufacturing, which together optimize the nature of the scandium metal. Element 21 designers took a superior golf club material, and through extensive engineering, capitalized on the material's inherent characteristics creating the finest golf products ever produced. E21's patented Scandium alloy has a strength to weight advantage of 25% over titanium, 50% over graphite and 70% over steel. Additionally, the manufacturing process ensures a degree of symmetry in the shaft's construction that simply cannot be duplicated by steel or graphite shafts.

Unknown to most players, steel shafted clubs have a seam where the shaft is welded. Graphite by its very nature of composite materials is inherently inconsistent along the length of the shaft. In contrast, the E21 scandium shafts are nearly perfectly symmetrical. Not only does this contribute to the superior accuracy of E21 shafted clubs, it makes for incredible consistency from club to club.

About Element 21:

Element 21 is relying on its experience working with advanced scandium metal alloys to introduce this unique space-age material to the golf industry. Scandium alloys were originally developed for applications in aeronautics, fighter jets and leading edge missile applications, as well as the International Space Station.

Scandium metal alloy clubs represent the first new innovation in material composition of golf clubs to hit the industry in decades. Scandium not only provides significant increases in distance, but more importantly, added accuracy and consistency. Due to its advanced composition, coupled with design innovations, these clubs offer improved feel while reducing shock transfer to the player's hands.
