Aerotech's SteelFiber Lands Top 10 at Tournament of Champions


BELLINGHAM, Wash. — After finishing last year as No. 1 on the PGA TOUR Money List, Aerotech's SteelFiber shafts landed a Top 10 money position in this year's season opener, the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, held this weekend at Plantation Course at Kapalua in Hawaii. SteelFiber composite shafts combine a high-modulus graphite core with 59 miles of steel fiber lacing the shaft surface and are well-known for giving players the stability of steel and the power of graphite.

The 14-year pro, who topped the money with $4.9 million last year, took sixth-place this weekend playing SteelFiber i95 taper tip constant weight shafts in his irons.

"This was a great start to the 2011 season and we're looking forward to demonstrating again this year the benefits of playing with composite technology. SteelFiber shafts are one of the most innovative designs on the market today and combines the performance characteristics of steel and graphite to provide both power and stability," said Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary, who personally designed the entirely new category of golf shaft.

Hilleary explains the Aerotech SteelFiber shaft design is unlike any other shaft on the pro tours and it seamlessly brings brings together graphite and steel fiber for a perfect blend of power and stability. The 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. While the shaft's graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, the steel fibers produce 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.
