NanoDynamics to Introduce Next Generation Golf Ball Technology at PGA Merchandise Show

Company Hires Former USGA Technical Director as an Advisor
Launches Website To Begin Taking Pre-Orders


Buffalo, NY | December 14, 2004

NanoDynamics, a leading nanotechnology organization and manufacturer of superior nanomaterials, announced today that it will introduce its revolutionary new golf ball, the NDMX, at the 2005 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida. Frankly Golf will showcase the NDMX golf ball as a Frankly Innovation in the Frankly Golf booth # 3815 from January 27-30, 2005.

The NDMX golf ball incorporates NanoDynamics' patented NDMX technology, which is designed to improve performance by focusing on the physics of a golf ball's rotation and enhancing energy transfer between the club head and golf ball. The NDMX technology is expected to provide ball manufacturers with a new set of design and material parameters that can be used to produce optimal performance for a variety of player skill levels. By designing a ball whose rotational speed is reduced, the potential for hooking and slicing is diminished.

In addition to straighter drives, the NDMX technology is expected to improve roll characteristics of the ball on the green resulting in truer putts. As an extra benefit, the core of the NDMX golf ball is completely recyclable.

NanoDynamics has also announced the hiring of Frank Thomas, founder of Frankly Golf and former USGA Technical Director, as a consultant and technical advisor to the NDMX golf ball initiative. Mr. Thomas will be responsible for assuring that NanoDynamics and their advanced technology will have a positive effect on the integrity of the game of golf. During his 26-year tenure with the USGA, Mr. Thomas developed and directed one of the most respected research and testing teams in golf and is responsible for setting international equipment standards, which govern balls and clubs for the multi-billion dollar equipment industry. In addition, as a founding Trustee of the prestigious World Scientific Congress of Golf Trust, he has supported, stimulated and promoted all forms of scientific research related to the game of golf and is credited with inventing the graphite golf shaft while working for the Shakespeare Sporting Goods Company.

"I look forward to working with NanoDynamics on the NDMX concept, which has the potential to revolutionize and revitalize the golf ball industry," stated Frank Thomas. "The NDMX technology will provide a more efficient projectile for a wide range of golfer skill levels and I believe it will enhance the game of golf."

In an effort to address early customer interest, NanoDynamics has launched the website, and has begun to accept pre-orders for the NDMX golf ball, which will be available in the first quarter of 2005. Additionally, the website is designed to help educate consumers and manufacturers about the benefits of the NDMX technology. Manufacturers interested in learning more about the NDMX technology and how they can incorporate it into their own golf ball designs can contact Dr. Alan Rae, VP Business and Market Development, at
