Aerotech Golf’s Shafts Out-Drives Competition at Re/Max Regionals


BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Continuing to deliver power and accuracy, high-performance composite shafts engineered by Aerotech Golf powered through the Open Division of the California and Nevada Regional of the Re/Max World Long Drive Championship. One third of the Men’s Open Division winners trusted the Aerotech Powercoil HP65 and the innovative shaft design delivered long-distance results.

Long Drive competitor Jason Frey captured the runner-up position for the Men’s Open Division with a 402-yard blast with a driver custom-fit with an Aerotech Powercoil HP65 shaft. Similarly, Stuart Yoshida hammered a 399-yard drive with an Powercoil HP65 shaft. As top regional finishers, the two men will advance to the 2008 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship finals, which will take place in Mesquite, Nev., on October 20-25, 2008.

In addition, Frey and Yoshida accounted for the three longest drives of the entire competition. During the qualifying rounds, Frey hit drives for 434 yards and 430 yards and Yoshida drove one for 420 yards. Both men played drivers custom-fit by John Greenwood of Greenwood’s Golf in Dublin, Calif. For more information on Greenwood’s Golf, call 925.828.8195.

“Power, accuracy and distance are essential for long drive competitions, and we’re very proud to play a winning role in these national events,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “But we don’t design our shafts solely for competition. Our Powercoil composite shafts are designed to provide power, accuracy and distance —as well as inspire confidence — for golfers of all skill levels. Because of its unique surface layer engineering, the Powercoil is perhaps one of the most stable graphite shafts in golf today.”

The Aerotech Powercoil features a ‘hoop wind’ graphite layer that runs around the shaft perpendicular to its longitudinal axis, thus maintaining the shaft’s round profile and eliminating unwanted clubhead oscillation during the swing. Aerotech shaft’s ‘hoop strength’ is superior to other shafts because each shaft has a unique full layer of continuous carbon fiber spiraled down the shaft’s entire length.

Well-known for developing an entirely new category in the shaft market, Aerotech Golf has receive wide acclaim for its revolutionary SteelFiber shafts. SteelFiber features a high-modulus graphite core and more than 59 miles of steel fiber covering the surface of each shaft, providing golfers with the power of graphite and the stability of steel. While the shaft’s graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, the steel fibers produce a optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy.
