SteelFiber shafts finish high on both PGA and Champions Tours

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- Aerotech Golf announces that its SteelFiber composite iron shafts won T4 and T8 money positions on the Champions and PGA Tours this weekend. SteelFiber i110 shafts collected a T4 finish at the SAS Championship on the Champions Tour and SteelFiber i95 shafts claimed T8 money at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on the PGA Tour.

Delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel on pro tours, SteelFiber shafts have been the No. 1 composite irons shafts on the PGA TOUR for the past three consecutive years. Most recently, SteelFiber shafts won the TOUR Championship and the 2012 FedEx Cup title.

"With two Top 10 finishes on two tours in one weekend, it's easy to see that the news about the unique playing benefits of composite shafts is spreading on the pro tours. 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." said Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary.

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. 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.

SteelFiber shafts set new company records during this 2012 PGA TOUR season. In addition to their second-straight Ryder Cup appearance, SteelFiber shafts won the 2012 FedEx Cup title, the TOUR Championship, The Players Championship and the Farmers Insurance Open and collected 21 Top 10 finishes on the PGA and Champions Tours.

Aerotech Golf specializes in innovative composite technology, and has supplied shafts to such renowned golf club manufactures as Titleist, Nike Golf, Bridgestone Golf, Cleveland Golf, Adams Golf, Miura, Srixon, Lynx, KZG, Nakashima, Bobby Jones, Scratch Golf, Zevo and Pure Spin among many others.
