Aerotech Golf's SteelFiber shafts score more top 10 finishes

BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- The No. 1 graphite iron shaft on all top U.S. Tours, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts by Aerotech Golf delivered more Top 10 finishes this week on the pro tours, and have already made this season one of the most successful in the brand's history. SteelFiber shafts scored a T7 money position at the Byron Nelson Championship on the PGA Tour and collected two six-place ties at the Regions Tradition on the Champions Tour.

"Week after week on the pro tours, SteelFiber graphite iron shafts are demonstrating the unique performance benefits of playing graphite iron shafts," says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. "A vast majority of golfers today still rely on steel shafts in their irons, but technology and materials change rapidly and the old steel shaft design has basically remained unchanged for 80 years. Today, the innovative design of the SteelFiber shafts is a game-changer. SteelFiber graphite iron shafts provide solid feel at impact while also giving a player the benefits of greater vibration dampening, reduced fatigue and increased clubhead speed."

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.

In 2013, players with SteelFiber shafts in their irons won five events on the PGA TOUR and two events on the Champions Tour. Players with SteelFiber shafts also 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.

Aerotech Golf shafts are available as custom options with many nationally celebrated golf club manufacturers such as Callaway, Titleist, TaylorMade, Ping, Nike Golf, Bridgestone Golf, Wilson, Cleveland Golf, Miura, Srixon, KZG, Nakashima and Scratch Golf.
