BELLINGHAM, Wash. (January 17, 2005)– Equip2golf.com, a popular golf website that is widely accepted in the golf industry, has selected the Aerotech SteelFiber shaft in its annual Editors Choice Award for 2004. The golf staff, including industry veteran Gary Mayes, editor of Equip2golf.com, reviewed numerous products during 2004 and chose the Aerotech SteelFiber shaft as one of the leading golf products of the year.
As a technological breakthrough in shaft technology, Aerotech’s new SteelFiber shaft is the first shaft design that effectively combines the best of both graphite and steel. SteelFiber’s high modulus graphite inner core is surrounded by a complex stainless steel-fiber surface layer that includes more than 59 miles of steel fiber covering the entire surface of each shaft. Each steel fiber’s diameter is approximately 1/10th the diameter of the human hair. The high-density steel surface fiber adds stability and control for the accuracy of a steel shaft while the graphite core dampens vibration and increases club head speed giving it the distance of a graphite shaft. The steel surface layer also optimizes the shafts weight without substantially increasing the wall thickness, promoting a more solid feel through impact.
Chris Hilleary, Vice President of the Golf Division for Aerotech Sports Corporation says, “It’s exciting to see that the SteelFiber shaft is starting to get the attention of the golf industry. Soon golfers everywhere are going to realize that (with the SteelFiber shaft) they can reap the benefits of a graphite shaft without giving up the control and consistency of a steel shaft”.
