SteelFiber shafts help capture top 3 money on Champions Tour

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- The No. 1 composite irons shafts on the PGA TOUR for the past three consecutive years, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf are also delivering the power of graphite and stability of steel on the Champions Tour. Playing SteelFiber i110 shafts in his irons, one of the top players at this weekend's Regions Tradition tournament scored 19 birdies (tied for second most of the event) and finished with a third-place tie. The high money position also landed a third-place ranking in the Charles Schwab Cup.

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.

"We've very excited about on continued success on the Champions Tours," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. "SteelFiber shafts provide benefits for all players at all skill levels, but there is perhaps no player demographic that can appreciate the unique performance characteristics of SteelFiber shafts more than seniors. SteelFiber's composite technology gives players greater vibration dampening, reduces their fatigue, and provides the stability they have historically played with with steel shafts. Most senior players can simply play better and longer with SteelFiber composite technology. "

SteelFiber shafts are No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Standings; No. 2 and No. 3 in the 2013 PGA TOUR Money List; No. 4 and 7 in official world rankings; and tied for first for Top 10 finishes on the PGA TOUR. SteelFiber shafts have been the No. 1 iron composite shafts on the PGA TOUR in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Originally developed for irons, the SteelFiber technology now enhances the performance of hybrids, fairway woods and drivers.
