Aerotech Golf announces the launch of its all-new Facebook page

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- Golf's leader in composite shaft innovation, Aerotech Golf announces the launch of its all-new Facebook page. Now, in addition to visiting the Aerotech's new website (www.AerotechGolfShafts.com), golfers and custom clubfitters can now receive and share the latest news and information about Aerotech shafts through the popular social media site.

With more than 500 million active users, Facebook is one of the most trafficked web sites in the world and helps people communicate more efficiently with family, friends and other trusted connections.

"We're extremely excited about the ability to provide updates and information about our composite technology through the Facebook network. Facebook has millions of users and it's important for us to communicate in as many ways as possible to build awareness for the unique playing benefits of our shafts," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary.

Aerotech's new Claymore driver shaft has enjoyed great success on the Long Drive tour this year and its SteelFiber shafts have delivered numerous Top 10 finishes on the PGA Tour, including the Bob Hope Classic, SBS Championship, World Golf Championships-CA Championship, Shell Houston Open, Memorial Tournament, RBC Canadian Open and the U.S. Open.

SteelFiber shafts feature a high-modulus graphite core and nearly 60 miles of steel fiber covering the surface of each shaft, providing golfers with the power of graphite and the stability of steel. While the shaft's graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, the steel fibers produce a 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.

Aerotech specializes in uniquely engineered, performance-enhancing golf shafts and has supplied shafts to such renowned golf club manufactures as Nike, Cleveland Golf, Adams Golf, Miura, Srixon, Nakashima, Lynx, Zevo, Pure Spin and many others.
