Scandium beats Titanium in driver tests
The Element 21 Golf Company has announced that their EMC² Scandium Driver has bettered three top-level competitors in independent tests
The Element 21 Golf Company, manufacturers of new hi-tech Scandium Alloy golf equipment, has announced that their EMC² Scandium Driver has come through in dependant tests with flying colours.
“They far exceeded the company’s “original execrations”, said Chief Operating Officer Bill Dey when announcing that the tests, conducted by Golf Laboratories in San Diego (www.golflabs.com) had shown that the company’s new EMC² Scandium Driver had out-performed all 3 top competitive drivers it tested against in relation to distance, and, perhaps even more significantly, was the clear winner when it came to accuracy tests.
Element 21 claimed that in off-center heel and toe hits their EMC² driver recorded an average ‘carry dispersion’ of 8 feet, beating the competition by an amazing 263% 288% and 338% respectively.
All tests were conducted at the Golf Laboratories in San Diego with a robot swing speed of 100 mph, the average speed of most recreational golfers, and in terms of distance, the longest drive of the day was recorded by the EMC² driver at 274 yards with the shortest of its competitors trailing by all of 29 yards.
“Club manufacturers (using titanium) have reached the peak of distance performance due to strict USGA regulations,” said Dey
“You can only make a driver so “Hot”, but the Scandium Driven Technology of our new EMC² driver has allowed us to take the next step in driver performance.
“The EMC² driver is longer than what is considered to be the industry’s top three drivers, but is exceptionally accurate, even on miss-hits.
“With limitations on the COR and trampoline effect (to which the ECM Scandium Driver conforms), we have moved to the next step in club design and development.
With Scandium, we can do things we only dreamed of doing with steel or titanium – and independent test results like this prove it.”
The e21 EMC² driver has been tested by the USGA and the test model has been found to conform to the rules of golf.
In fact, to date, all e21 golf equipment made from e21 Sc ScandiumTM Alloy have conformed to the rules of golf as per the USGA.
Scandium Metal Alloy is the secret behind this advanced performance, says Element 21.
Originally developed for advanced aeronautics in jet fighters such as the MiG, it is claimed to be 55% lighter and offers a 25% greater strength-to-weight advantage over Titanium alloys, the current standard in the golf equipment industry.
Scandium Metal Alloys allows greater freedom to move more weight to the perimeter of the club face in woods and hybrids than for any other metal, resulting in a significantly larger sweet spot than on 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 shafts.
