Scandium Putter Unveiled by Element 21 Golf

IRVINE, CA and TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 20, 2005 -- Element 21 Golf Company (E21) (OTC BB: EGLF) announced today the introduction of its new scandium putter featuring a "traditional design." Putters constitute one of the largest equipment segments in the golf industry today. The new putter offers E21 a winning solution to competing in this major market sector and establishes another avenue to strengthen brand recognition for the company. Previews of the new E21 putter head are available at

The putter head incorporates a scandium metal alloy face insert, which is milled for superior contact with the ball harmonizing the energy transfer. The scandium metal alloy in both the shaft and putter face take advantage of scandium's soft feel and spin reduction which translates to reduced ball "skid" upon contact. This allows the ball to begin rolling more quickly and easily off the face of the club and provides enhanced distance control and a more accurate ball trajectory. The scandium putter shaft gives you the same true "contact signature" feedback on your putts as you get in all of the E21 line of clubs. "The feel is solid and the roll is true." Initial player testing of these new clubs has provided very positive feedback on the improved "feel" that the putter provides over the competition.

The E21 putter's scandium metal alloy shafts are by themselves noteworthy. They are superior in every respect to graphite and stainless steel shafts. Scandium's inherent metallurgical properties combined with a proprietary 25-step seamless production process results in a shaft that is nearly perfectly symmetrical, unlike graphite and stainless steel shafts. Unknown to many, steel shafts are welded creating a seam or spine not visible to the eye. The difference in the tube wall thickness at the point of welding creates an imbalance, which affects the consistency of shots. Similarly, the production process for graphite shafts also results in inconsistencies through the shaft with similar associated problems. Scandium provides greater accuracy and improved consistency from club to club. It also provides a 55% reduced density, and 25% specific strength advantage over titanium alloys, and a 75% reduced density compared to stainless steel. Scandium's superior strength to weight ratio over these other metals has allowed E21 to redistribute weight in the head of the putter to create a larger sweet spot, which in turn provides substantial forgiveness on miss-hits.

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; MiG series fighter jets and leading edge missile applications, as well as the International Space Station.

Scandium metal alloy clubs represents 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 the dynamic nature of the material, coupled with numerous design innovations, the E21 new line of clubs will offer improved feel while reducing shock transfer to the player's hands.
