LPGA players reap rewards with Aerotech Golf's SteelFiber shafts

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- As the No. 1 graphite iron shafts on the PGA and Champions Tours, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf are well-known for delivering the power of graphite and the stability of steel. Now, SteelFiber shafts are also growing in popularity on the LPGA Tours around the world thanks largely to additional performance benefits such as vibration dampening, reduced player fatigue and increase swing speed.

Recently, one of the LPGA's newest and brightest stars, who plays SteelFiber i80 shafts, won the 2013 Rookie of the Year on the LPGA Tour. This week, a young Thai professional won the Taiwan LPGA Royal Open, also playing SteelFiber i80 shafts.

"We are very pleased to see SteelFiber's popularity incease on the LPGA Tour as well as on the international tours," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. "SteelFiber's innovative technology provides for a very unique combination of performance benefits that players of all skill and ability levels can appreciate. SteelFiber shafts give the stability and consistency that players often have with steel shafts, but they also provide much more than that. SteelFiber shafts also provide greater vibration dampening that reduces player fatigue and increases playability."

In 2013, players with SteelFiber shafts ranked No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Season Points at the end of the regular season. SteelFiber shafts were also No. 6 and No. 12 in FedEx Cup Playoff Points; and ended 2013 overall as No. 3 and No. 5 on the PGA Money List; Nos. 8 and 9 in official world rankings; and tied for first and fourth in Top 10 finishes. In 2013, players with SteelFiber shafts in their irons won five events on the PGA TOUR and two events 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. 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.

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).
