Long Drive Distance Record Continues to Be Shattered by e21

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 8, 2007 --Element 21 Golf Company ("e21") (OTCBB: EGLF) (FRANKFURT: BJQ) the manufacturer of advanced Scandium Alloy golf equipment is pleased to report that the golf shot taken by cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin during a spacewalk off the International Space Station on November 22, 2006 continues to extend its record-breaking flight in orbit around the earth as the Longest Drive in history. Originally, NASA predicted that the ball would burn up into the atmosphere within three days after Tyurin launched it into space using a Scandium (e21) golf club -- it is now approaching 50 Million miles traveled.

The e21 golf ball is essentially the smallest orbiting purpose-built satellite to be tracked live from the Earth. The exact location of the ball at any moment can be viewed at, where you can also check out the complete new line of e21 'Space Hardware' Scandium golf equipment due out in stores this Spring.

Mikhail, who has only played golf twice in his life, hit the ball using both arms despite the restrictive bulk of his space suit, unlike Alan Shepard's golf shot on the moon. "OK, there it goes!" Mr. Tyurin noted with satisfaction. "It went pretty far. It was an excellent shot."

The shot has gone more than "pretty far." As of March 7, 2007 6:24 p.m. EST, the ball had traveled a total of 45,747,754 miles (73,196,407 Kms). Every additional second of flight adds another 6 miles of distance. By the end of today, another 67,000 miles will be added to its cumulative distance.

e21's highly anticipated product line, aptly entitled Emc2, is currently being shipped to e21 retailers nationwide, and will be available for trial and purchase at over 500 golf retail specialty stores and green grass pro shops. Emc2 Irons and Hybrids are all CST (Contact Signature Tuned) to e21 Scandium Shafts for true contact with the ball.

In addition to the Emc2 Irons and Hybrids, e21's Eagle One Scandium Shafts will be available separately and can be customized to fit any specification. For information on all e21 products and retail sales information, please visit

About The e21 Eagle One Scandium Shafts

e21'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 results in a vibration dampening system called ShockBlok™ with 270% better shock attenuation than steel shafts that protects golfer's bodies, bones and joints. Each e21 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 Irons

--  Each set frequency matched with CST (Contact Signature Tuned)
    technology for optimum feel and performance with e21 Scandium Eagle One
--  2 piece construction -- high-strength steel face plate allows for
    increased ball speed, and saves weight for optimizing CG location.
--  A progressive offset maximizes trajectory and allows forgiveness on
--  CNC milled scorelines control width and depth dimensions for maximum
    allowed by the USGA.
--  A wide sole makes it easier to get a proper launch angle from all
    types of lies, and a hollow design allows for increased MOI, giving more
    accuracy on off-center hits.
--  The TPE injected body dampens vibrations on all shots.
About The Emc2 Hybrids
--  Available in 18, 20, 23 & 26 degree lofts.
--  The sleek design features minimum crown thickness allowing for maximum
    CG specifications, as well as Crown Louvers which serve as an exceptional
    alignment aid for improved accuracy.
--  Low weighted internally, the low center of gravity results in an easy
--  Open face angle enables users to control straighter shot pattern for a
    wide range of players.
About Element 21 Golf Company:

Element 21 Golf Company is a Delaware company trading on the OTCBB and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (FWB) with offices in New Jersey, USA and Toronto, Canada. e21 holds the exclusive right to manufacture golf products using it's proprietary e21 Scandium Metal Alloy. Simply put, e21 clubs are using next-generation technology that delivers marked improvements in distance, consistency, accuracy and feel over any of the most popular products in the $5.5 billion U.S. golf equipment marketplace.

Based on this superior performance, a number of high profile golf professionals have switched to or have begun testing e21's Eagle One shafts in recent months.

e21 Scandium Metal Alloy is the secret behind this advanced performance. Originally developed for advanced aeronautics in jet fighters such as the MiG, it is 55% lighter and offers a 25% greater strength-to-weight advantage over Titanium alloys, the current standard in the golf equipment industry. e21 Scandium Metal Alloys allows greater freedom to move more weight to the perimeter of the club face in woods and hybrids than any other metal, resulting in a significantly larger sweet spot than any other club head. Additionally, e21 Scandium Metal Alloy shafts are almost perfectly symmetrical at 99.5-99.9%, compared to 60-78% typical in graphite shafts and 80-85% for steel.

e21 Golf -- Better Science. Better Performance.
