Aerotech SteelFiber Grabs Top 10 Finish at Bridgestone


BELLINGHAM, Washington — For the second time in three weeks, Aerotech SteelFiber composite shafts grabbed a share of the top money on the PGA TOUR. This weekend at the World Golf Championship – Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, a 2010 FedEx Cup contender earned another Top 10 money position playing SteelFiber shafts.

The Top 10 money winner and former United States Men’s Amateur Golf Champion played Aerotech SteelFiber i95 taper tip constant weight shafts in his irons and has now earned more than $2.7 million this year with SteelFiber shafts. A highly innovative design, SteelFiber shafts combine a high-modulus graphite core with 59 miles of steel fiber lacing the shaft surface creating a unique combination of performance and feel.

"The WGC-Bridgestone Invitational marks the eighth time this year that SteelFiber shafts have delivered a Top 10 finish on the PGA TOUR, and we're very pleased that professional players are seeing that they have more options than simply steel or graphite. SteelFiber is an entirely new category of golf shaft that delivers the power of graphite with the stability of steel by combining material elements of both," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. "We've led the industry in composite shaft innovation for more than 15 years, and the SteelFiber remains one of the most consistent golf shafts ever made, while still providing the feel and vibration-dampening benefits of graphite."

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.

Aerotech specializes in uniquely engineered, performance-enhancing golf shafts and has supplied shafts to such renowned golf club manufactures as Cleveland Golf, Adams Golf, Fenwick, Srixon, Lynx, Zevo and Pure Spin among many others.
