10. Enix

When every setter we talked to mentioned Enix we knew we had to check them out. Even though their new line is very small it shows great promise. Enix’s owner, Brian May, and fellow shaper Christopher Neal are creating perfect grips with smooth clean lines.

Enix, which is based in Tempe, Arizona, is doing business a bit different than other new hold makers. They have teamed up with Georgia hold maker, Element, where the Enix line will be poured and shipped. This business model lowers their startup costs and manpower needs, which should give them an edge during their first year.
