SteelFiber shafts from Aerotech have been making some big headlines recently with an increase in useage on the world's major pro tours.
We take a look at what the range has to offer:
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. Originally developed for irons the SteelFiber technology now enhances the performance of hybrids, fairway woods and drivers.
This shaft is generally preferred by stronger players that are looking to maintain the overall effort it takes to swing their steel shafted irons but wants to benefit from the vibration dampening characteristics of a composite shaft. The weights of all of our SteelFiber iron shafts are manipulated using metal and graphite instead of just graphite. This is just one of the things that set the playability of the SteelFiber shafts apart from all its competitors.
Players looking to go a little bit lighter than the typical steel shafted irons choose the SteelFiber i110 so they can pick up some yardage while maintaining a low penetrating ball flight and avoid changing the overall feel they are accustomed to from playing steel shafts. The player will also take advantage of the reduced vibrations of a composite shaft resulting in fewer injuries and less fatigue during the round.
The SteelFiber 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 95 gram weight allows the player to see some good improvement in distance while still maintaining pinpoint accuracy and incredibly consistent distance control.
Our number one selling SteelFiber iron shaft, the i80, gives a player all of the benefits of a 100% graphite shaft but with remarkable control and consistency.
The lightest SteelFiber shaft in our lineup is a great shaft for those slower swing speed players looking to gain as much yardage as possible. This shaft is offered in a wide range of flexes and can hold up to even the most demanding swings.
