Aerotech Golf Unveils New Volant, Super Lightweight Iron Shafts


 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Aerotech Golf, maker of the No. 1 graphite iron shafts on the PGA Tour, announces the introduction of its all-new Volant product line, the company's first super lightweight iron shaft.

Featuring Aerotech’s proprietary hoop wind surface layer and multiple stiffness profiles, the new Volant super lightweight iron shafts possess all the stability of a much heavier shaft, while generating higher launch angles and dynamic flight control. The new Volant shafts will be officially unveiled at the PGA Merchandise Show Demo Day on Jan. 26, 2016 in Orlando, Fla.

"Bringing together innovative graphite shaft design and creative material engineering, the all-new Volant exemplifies the real game-changing technology for which Aerotech is so well known," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "The Volant introduces a new generation of very stable, super-light weight golf shafts specifically designed for irons. The Volant's ultra-lightweight design maximizes swing speed and minimizes fatigue that produces greater distance and improved player performance for longer periods of play. It's a winning combination that's truly changing the game."

By incorporating Aerotech Golf’s Proprietary Hoop Wind surface layer, Volant shafts eliminate shaft distortion during the golf swing and at impact for unmatched stability. The Volant generates higher launch angles and features a very stable tip section for dynamic flight control. Plus, like all Aerotech shafts, the Volant series provides the ultimate in vibration dampening which reduces the risk of injury and lessens player fatigue. The Volant is available in 55-gram (FT 500) and 65-gram (FT 600) models in several stiffness profiles so models are available for every golfer who wants to enjoy the benefits of lightweight iron shafts. MSRP $49.99.

During the 2015 season, SteelFiber shafts delivered seven wins — three on the PGA Tour and two each on the Champions and LPGA Tours. The previous tour season was equally successful with SteelFiber chalking up five wins on the PGA TOUR and two more on the Champions Tour. Players with SteelFiber shafts routinely rank high on the PGA Money List, Official World Golf Rankings and the FedEx Cup Season Points. In 2013, for example, SteelFiber players ranked No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Season Points and ended overall as No. 3 and No. 5 on the PGA Money List.

Aerotech Golf shafts are available as custom options with many nationally celebrated golf club manufacturers such as Callaway, Titleist, TaylorMade, Ping, Nike Golf, Bridgestone Golf, Wilson, Cleveland Golf, Miura, Srixon, KZG, Parsons Xtreme Golf and Nakashima Golf.
