True Temper Opens New Shaft Testing Facility

True Temper Sports announces the grand opening of a new state-of-the-art shaft testing facility at Ridgeway Country Club in Memphis. The True Temper Ridgeway Test Center will play a crucial role in the company’s world class product development process, and its ongoing efforts to continually bring innovative shaft solutions to the marketplace.

The facility will be home to True Temper’s custom-designed Miya 5 Swing Robot which has the ability to mimic any player’s swing and provide vital feedback about shaft performance. The test center is also equipped with the new cutting-edge Gears Golf System. This motion capture system uses multiple sensors combined with eight different ultra-HD 1.2 megapixel cameras running at 360 frames per second to track every single aspect of equipment performance during a golf swing. By analyzing over 600 images per second, the system can tell company engineers exactly how a particular shaft design deflects throughout the downswing thus providing crucial feedback for product improvement and optimization.

“True Temper’s focus has been and always will be on innovation, and continually pushing ourselves to develop new and improved golf shaft designs for our OEM partners and ultimately for the golfer,” Jason Jenne, CEO of True Temper Sports said. “Being at the forefront of golf shaft technology means continuously investing in the latest development equipment and facilities, and we fully expect the Ridgeway Test Center to produce ground-breaking shaft solutions for years to come.”

With design, development and manufacturing facilities located throughout the country and the world, True Temper is consistently identified as the leader in golf shaft technology. While True Temper offers several brands with many unique models, the Project X, Dynamic Gold and XP brands dominate many of the headlines from the global professional golf tours.
