True Flight Golf manufacturers a popular shaft for golf clubs. Its trade secret is a unique process for weaving high-tension wire into the center of the shaft such that energy is accumulated during the swing and released at impact. A specialized machine costing $3,000,000 is utilized in the manufacturing process. The machine has a 3-year life and no salvage value. True Flight uses straight-line depreciation.
