BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel on professional tours, Aerotech SteelFiber composite shafts captured the win at the Turning Stone Resort Championship, the first tournament of the PGA TOUR Fall Series. SteelFiber shafts are highly acclaimed for their extreme on-course performance and for their innovative composite engineering that combines a high-modulus graphite core with 59 miles of steel fiber lacing the shaft surface.
The Turning Stone champion and former United States Men’s Amateur Golf Champion shot 17-under par (271) to get his first win of the 2009 PGA TOUR season. He played Bridgestone irons (4-PW) assembled with Aerotech SteelFiber i95 taper tip constant weight shafts.
“We congratulate this week’s champion on a terrific win. His victory with SteelFiber technology demonstrates you don’t have to play steel shafted irons to win on the professional tours. Our SteelFiber shafts have earned a reputation among professional golfers for delivering power and consistency. Unlike conventional shaft designs, SteelFiber feature lighter weights and vibration-dampening characteristics of a composite shaft, while still retaining the control and stability of steel,” says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary.
SteelFiber shafts feature a high-modulus graphite core and nearly 60 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. Originally developed for irons the SteelFiber technology now enhances the performance of hybrids, fairway woods and drivers.
