Aerotech's SteelFiber Shafts Ensure Victory at Farmers


BELLINGHAM, Washington — Delivering the power of graphite and stability of steel, Aerotech SteelFiber composite shafts delivered a win at the Farmers Insurance Open, held this weekend at Torrey Pines. SteelFiber shafts opened the 2012 season on a fast pace, also scoring second- and eighth-place positions at the Sony Open and Humana Challenge.

The Farmers Open champion earned his third career victory on the PGA TOUR playing SteelFiber shafts in his Bridgestone irons. He shot a final round 67 on Sunday, finished with a 16-under 272 and won in a thrilling two-hole playoff.

"More and more PGA TOUR players are discovering the benefits of playing composite iron shafts. Our SteelFiber composite technology combines the performance characteristics of graphite shafts which produce greater vibration dampening and less fatigue with those of steel shafts which provide more consistency. It's a win-win technology that is winning on Tour," said Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary.

SteelFiber shafts had a strong finish in 2011, delivering three Top Three finishes in the 2011 PGA TOUR PlayOffs and being featured by two of the Top Eight pros in the final FedExCup standings.

Unlike any other shaft on the pro tours, SteelFiber shafts combine graphite and steel fiber to seamlessly create 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.
