Tempe, AZ (August 14, 2006) – VyaTek Sports announces the launch of its newest affiliate company, Hybrex Golf, to commercialize a new line of premium golf shafts based on their patented Exogridâ Technology.
“We’ve been developing high-end consumer products with ExoGrid, including: bicycles (www.titusti.com), baseball bats (www.slugger.com), and lacrosse/hockey sticks, since 2003”, says Howard Lindsay, VyaTek’s President and CEO. “We also began exploring the technical and economic implications of creating ExoGrid golf shafts and concluded that the synergy between ExoGrid and the growing niche market of hybrid clubs was a perfect fit.

The new Hybrex shaft line is designed specifically for hybrid clubs and fairway metals, two of the fastest growing segments in the golf industry”, Lindsay continued.
