Aerotech’s SteelFiber Shafts Among the Best at Barclays


BELLINGHAM, Washington — Aerotech Golf announces that its No. 1-selling SteelFiber composite iron shafts garnered a Top 10 finish at the Barclays Scottish Open on the European Tour. Overcoming adverse weather and tough playing conditions at Castle Stuart Golf Links in Inverness, Scotland, the SteelFiber shaft's innovative composite design delivered a 13-under par total at the rain-shortened event.

SteelFiber shafts have already scored eight Top 10 finishes on the 2011 PGA TOUR season. Last year, Aerotech Golf's SteelFiber shafts were in the irons of the No. 1 player on the PGA TOUR Money List, No.1 in Scoring Average, No. 1 in All-Around ranking, No. 1 in number of Top 10 finishes and No. 2 in FedExCup standings.

“It's great to see Aerotech shafts being played in the ancestral home of golf, and it's particularly rewarding to see the only American to finish in the Top 10 playing SteelFiber i95 shafts. SteelFiber shafts provide a composite shaft alternative for irons that gives the benefits of reduced fatigue, greater vibration dampening and increased clubhead speed normally associated with graphite, while still providing the stability and accuracy of steel,” said Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary.

SteelFiber shafts deliver extreme performance through 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. Aerotech's SteelFiber technology is available in 75-, 85-, 95-, 110- and 125-gram iron shaft models as well as performance enhancing designs for hybrids, fairway woods and drivers.

An industry leader in innovative composite shaft technology, Aerotech Golf specializes in uniquely engineered, performance-enhancing golf shafts, and has has supplied shafts to such renowned golf club manufactures as Nike Golf, Cleveland Golf, Adams Golf, Miura, Srixon, Lynx, Nakashima, Scratch Golf, Zevo and Pure Spin among many others.
