SteelFiber composite shafts cash in on top 10s on two tours

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- SteelFiber composite shafts, designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, cashed in on more Top 10s this week on the PGA and Champions Tours. SteelFiber i95 and i110 shafts each grabbed a Top 10 finish — 4th and 8th — at the Deutsche Bank Championship on the PGA Tour, while i110 shafts collected a solo second-place and a tenth-place tie at the inaugural Shaw Charity Classic on the Champions Tour.

"It's very rewarding to see the growing number of players on the PGA and Champions Tours make the switch to the game-changing composite technology of SteelFiber shafts," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. "While the SteelFiber line includes several models and weights, the SteelFiber i95 and i110 shafts are currently the most popular on the pro tours. The i95 is a great transition into a lighter weight iron shaft without going too light and substantially changing the feel of the club during the swing. The SteelFiber i110 is the perfect choice for players looking to go a little bit lighter than the typical steel-shafted irons, plus the i110 allows them to pick up some yardage while retaining the overall feel they have when playing steel shafts."

Currently on the PGA TOUR, SteelFiber shafts are No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Season Points; No. 4 in FedEx Cup Playoff Points; No. 2 and No. 4 on the PGA Money List; Nos. 7 and 8 in official world rankings; and tied for second in Top 10 finishes. Also this year, SteelFiber has five wins on the PGA Tour and one win on the Champions Tour.

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.

Aerotech Golf shafts are available as custom options with many nationally celebrated golf club manufacturers such as Titleist, TaylorMade, Nike Golf, Bridgestone Golf, Cleveland Golf, Miura, Srixon, KZG, Nakashima and Scratch Golf. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world. Aerotech Golf is a proud supporter of the Association of Golf Clubfitting Professionals (AGCP) and the International Clubmakers Guild (ICG).
