SteelFiber Composite Iron Shafts Win Golf's Richest Title

November 12 2012

Which golf shaft delivered the richest payoff in golf history? The answer might surprise you. SteelFiber shafts have been the No. 1 composite irons shafts on the PGA TOUR for three straight years, and they made golf history this fall. In the most anticipated tournament of the year and with the Tour's biggest purse on the line, SteelFiber shafts by Aerotech Golf -- a growing phenomenon on Tour -- won the TOUR Championship and the 2012 FedEx Cup title for a one-day payoff exceeding $11.4 million. "Steel shafts have been an industry standard for more than 100 years but, frankly steel is old technology that reached its performance limit a long time ago. Just as graphite shafts replaced steel in the driver and wood categories, the new composite technology featured in SteelFiber iron shafts is emerging on the pro tours and its winning," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. "By combining micro-thin steel fibers and high-modulus graphite, we have created iron shafts that significantly increase clubhead speed, reduce fatigue and provide greater vibration dampening, while also providing steel-like accuracy and stability. It's a winning combination that has made history on the PGA TOUR and we're seeing a real movement to composites now.
