BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Since the successful launch of the SteelFiber® i125 wedge shaft last year, Aerotech has been bombarded with requests for a matching iron shaft. Today, the wait is over and Aerotech is proud to introduce the all-new SteelFiber i125 iron shaft, a ‘pro-weighted’ composite design that delivers superior playability with the consistency and accuracy of steel.
“We’re excited that SteelFiber i125 shafts are now part of our product line,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “After we introduced the i125 wedge shaft, the number of requests we received for matching irons was staggering. The new SteelFiber i125 graphite shaft is designed for players who prefer the weight of a steel shaft, but who also want the vibration dampening benefits and pinpoint accuracy of the SteelFiber design.”
Hilleary explains that the SteelFiber i125 iron shaft is unique among other heavier composite shafts because the additional weight is not achieved by adding more graphite – which makes shaft walls too thick and creates a ‘boardy’ feel – but rather by adding more metal fiber which has five times the density (weight) of graphite. This minimizes the increase in wall thickness and maintains the shaft’s playability with an incredibly stable feel and no harsh vibrations.
The i125 shaft is available in a 0.370-inch parallel design and in a 0.355-inch taper tip model, labeled i125cw. Like all taper tip designs by Aerotech, the i125cw is a constant weight configuration so individual shafts within the iron set weigh exactly the same regardless of length. SteelFiber i125 shafts weigh 125 grams and are available in stiff and x-stiff flexes. MSRP $37.
SteelFiber shafts feature 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. Originally developed for irons the SteelFiber technology now enhances the performance of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, irons and wedges.
