Leading golf shaft manufacturer Fujikura Golf have launched their new shafts for 2011, including the high performance Blur shaft using TeXtreme Spread Tow Fabrics from Oxeon..
We are excited to present another completely new high performance product featuring TeXtreme. This new application further broadens our range of products in the Sports & Leisure segment. In the process of developing an optimized carbon reinforcement for the Blur Shaft we have worked closely with Fujikura and used different constructions of TeXtreme says Andreas Martsman, Vice President at Oxeon.
Blur stands for ""Beyond Light, Ultra-Responsive"". The lightweight, higher balance-point shaft is designed to accelerate faster and generate greater swing speeds without compromising the solid and controllable feel typically absent in lightweight shafts.
The sister ship of the renowned passenger ferry Vision of the Fjords takes sustainability one step further. A catamaran constructed from carbon fibre composite that runs entirely on batteries, Future of the Fjords will offer sightseeing with a minimum of environmental impact.
Toho Tenax is introducing a high-tensile, highly shock-resistant prepreg that incorporates carbon fibre developed for aerospace applications and carbon nanotubes (CNTs).
NTPT is collaborating with the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne - Swiss Centre of Technology (EPFL) and other partners to research discontinuous fibre composite tubes for high performance applications.
