SteelFiber Adds Top 10s at Pacific Links Hawai'i Championship
Sun, surf and tropical breezes would normally be excitement enough, but this weekend during the Pacific Links Hawai'i Championship, Aerotech SteelFiber i110 shafts won two Top 10 money positions at Kapolei. The fourth- and sixth-place tie finishes delivered more tour-proven success for the No. 1 composite iron shafts on the PGA and Champions Tours.

Playing SteelFiber i110 shafts in his irons, the T4 finisher was No. 1 in the number of birdies (19) and chalked up his eighth Top 10 of the year. Meanwhile, a former Masters champion trusted SteelFiber i110 shafts to deliver his eighth Top 10 of the year as well (T6). He scored second in birdies (18) and tied for fifth in Greens-in-Regulation.

"The innovative composite technology of SteelFiber shafts continues to deliver week after week on the PGA and Champions Tours, and it's very satisfying to see players embrace new technology and then reap the rewards of better performance," says Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. "SteelFiber is specifically designed to provide greater vibration dampening and reduce player fatigue, while at the same time delivering stability and increased distance. Today, SteelFiber composite technology is a real game-changer."

On the PGA TOUR, SteelFiber shafts ended the regular season as No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Season Points; No. No. 6 and No. 12 in FedEx Cup Playoff Points; and are currently 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. Also this year, SteelFiber has five wins on the PGA Tour and one win on the Champions Tour.
SteelFiber Drives Away with Top 10 at BMW Championship
The No. 1 composite iron shaft on the PGA TOUR, SteelFiber shafts continued to deliver the power of graphite and the stability of steel in the PGA TOUR Playoffs. SteelFiber i95 shafts by Aerotech Golf earned an eighth-place tie at this week’s BMW Championship, making the event the second consecutive PGA Playoff of 2013 that SteelFiber shafts have received one or more Top 10s.

“The growing success of SteelFiber shafts on both the PGA and Champions Tours has been a great testament to the exceptional performance benefits gained when playing composite shafts in your irons,” said Aerotech Golf President Chris Hilleary. “SteelFiber’s composite technology gives players greater vibration dampening, reduces their fatigue, and provides the stability they have historically played with with steel shafts. I don’t think there’s any doubt today that SteelFiber shaft technology is game-changing innovation.”

Currently on the PGA TOUR, SteelFiber shafts are No. 2 and No. 3 in the FedEx Cup Season Points; No. 5 and No. 10 in FedEx Cup Playoff Points; No. 2 and No. 4 on the PGA Money List; No. 7 and No. 8 in official world rankings; and tied for No. 1 and No. 3 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.

SteelFiber Cashes In on Top 10's on Two Tours
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."
