BELLINGHAM, Washington – An industry leader in innovative composite shaft technology, Aerotech Golf reports that John Lawson of Napa, Calif., won two Open Division titles at the Long Drive Qualifier in Pleasanton, Calif., using a new Claymore LD400 driver shaft.
The Claymore delivered drives of more than 350 yards with uncanny accuracy, as Lawson went four-for-six and six-for-six in the grid in each of his two competitions. Lawson now advances to the Region 9 and Region 7 competitions for a chance to compete in the ReMax World Long Drive Championships held later this year in Mesquite, Nev. Lawson’s drivers were custom built by professional clubfitter John Greenwood of Greenwoods Golf in Dublin, Calif.
“We have built the Aerotech reputation on innovative composite shaft designs and creative material engineering, and the new Claymore is a great example of how these concepts come together to create a very stable, low-torque super-lightweight golf shaft. The Claymore Long Drive series is a new generation of golf shafts that have been designed to withstand the forces generated by modern Long Drive competitors. It allows a player to enjoy the benefits of a super lightweight golf shaft regardless of their swing speed,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf.
Utilizing a new micro-thin Micro-Tex Carbon Fiber, the Claymore shaft incorporates more high-modulus fibers at specific fiber angles, including the hoop wound (90°) surface layer, and minimizes shaft distortion for superior stability. The long drive model (Claymore LD) is available in three flexes LD400 (4X flex), LD300 (3X flex) and LD200 (2X flex). This year, Aerotech introduced two all-new Claymore models – MX48 and MX60 – with five flex levels (F1-F5) each. The MX48 weights are 47 grams (F1 flex) through 50 grams (F5 flex), while the slightly heavier MX60 model weighs in at 57 grams (F1) to 60 grams (F5).
Specializing in uniquely engineered, performance-enhancing golf shafts, Aerotech has supplied shafts to such renowned golf club manufactures as Cleveland Golf, Adams Golf, Fenwick, Srixon, Lynx, Zevo and Pure Spin among many others.
