Best known for its SteelFiber iron shafts — the only composite shafts of their kind in the iron sector — Aerotech is making a big push in the driver and fairway metals space, too, with its new TiFiber shafts. Delivering superior strength, unprecedented stability and the lightweight properties of titanium fiber technology, the ultra-premium Aerotech TiFiber is a game-changer. TiFiber wood shafts are designed for players to attain the highest level of performance and optimize launch angles and spin rates for increased distance and pinpoint accuracy.

TiFiber Tour 70 shafts feature a ‘Tour Stiff’ tip section to optimize flight by reducing spin and lowering trajectory, while TiFiber Pro 60 has a slightly softer tip section and benefits players who need a bit more launch and spin, yet who still want the added stability of titanium.

Meanwhile, Aerotech CEO Chris Hilleary and his crew continue to perfect their flagship SteelFiber shafts. “It’s the product that has really put us on the map and we’ve built our brand around it. It’s the first graphite iron shafts that’s really gained some traction on tour, with 65 wins among all tours. It’s a graphite iron shaft with a full layer of steel on the surface. — the stability and consistency of steel combined with the vibration dampening characteristics of graphite. It’s the best of both worlds. Matt Kuchar is playing it. Brant Snedeker. Fred Couples, Colin Montgomerie. Mark O’Meara.”

What about forf the 12 handicapper? We’ve created everything from 75, 85, 95, 110, 125 gram — from steel weight to lightweight graphite. We can get you into then right weight and stiffness to optimize your ballflight.”

Hilleary then mentioned the new TiFiber. “We also make a hybrid product, a driver shaft that’s heavier, so we have a titanium fiber shafts, 60 gram and 70 gram. All good fitters will give you a progression of weights through the bag.”

Next up is an “FC” or Flight Control shaft for the iron game. “It’s a flighted version of our most popular shaft, which has a stiff tip. The wedge is the same stiffness as the 95-tip stiffness, while the mid-irons and longer irons are easier to hit because the tip gets softer quicker than the original steel fiber, leading to more load. It will appeal to a broader audience.”

Aerotech shafts are available as a custom option with all the major OEMs, except Mizuno. “Or you can go to any club fitter that’s a dealer of ours, professionals, the best of the best,” Hilleary said. “You can get custom fit with any set and any of our shafts.”
