"This week's play at the Toto Japan Classic was a great demonstration of the performance benefits of SteelFiber shafts," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf.

In comparison, SteelFiber players had their lowest or equal to their lowest score in the final round of the event.

SteelFiber graphite shafts are making an impact on professional tours, and demonstrating that graphite shafts irons are the next real evolution in golf equipment," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "SteelFiber shafts have introduced game-changing innovation that is delivering unique performance benefits that are appreciated by amateur and professional golfers alike. Unlike any other shaft in golf, the unique SteelFiber technology provides stability and shot consistency while it simultaneously provides greater vibration dampening, reduces player fatigue, and increases clubhead speed and ball distance."

SteelFiber shafts provide superior performance through innovative composite engineering that combines a high-modulus graphite core with 59 miles of steel fiber lacing the shaft surface. The shaft's graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, while the steel fibers produce optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy.
