Aerotech SteelFiber Iron Shafts Score in Scottsdale


BELLINGHAM, Wash. — With more than 470,000 golf fans attending this year's FBR Open at TPC Scottsdale, Aerotech SteelFiber composite shafts outperformed most of the conventional shaft options and earned a Top 10 money position during one of the most legendary events on the PGA Tour. Aerotech SteelFiber shafts deliver extreme performance through innovative composite engineering that combines a high-modulus graphite core with 59 miles of steel fiber lacing the shaft surface.

The two-time, first-team All-American for Georgia Tech and former United States Men’s Amateur Golf Champion finished T6 at the FBR playing Bridgestone J36 Prototype irons (4-PW) assembled with Aerotech SteelFiber i95 taper tip constant weight shafts. The finish was the player's best of the young 2009 season.

"We are very excited to start the 2009 PGA Tour season with such a high profile for Aerotech shafts," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "Unlike conventional shaft designs, our SteelFiber designs feature a very unique composite technology. Players today know that graphite and steel both have their own performance benefits. Graphite shafts produce greater vibration dampening and lighter shaft weights which mean greater swing speed with less effort and fatigue while steel shafts tend to be more consistent and controllable. Aerotech SteelFiber shafts bring both of these materials together seamlessly to create a perfect blend of power and stability and we fully expect to see more requests for this shaft from all levels of tournament players."

Delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel on professional tours, 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.
