AEROTECH INFORMATION

Aerotech Sports was founded in 1991 and was the first company to produce an NHL approved composite Hockey Stick. Aerotech quickly began expanding its product base to include Bike Components, Helmets, Fishing Rods, Knee Braces, Violin Bows and Golf Shafts. Beginning production of Golf Shafts in 1994, Aerotech was able to take advantage of its vast knowledge of composites and create new innovative performance enhancing designs. Originally operating as an OEM supplier Aerotech produced golf shafts for companies such as Cleveland Golf, Adams Golf, Fenwick, Lynx, Zevo and Pure Spin among many others.

By launching its own branded golf shafts in 2002, Aerotech has become known as a producer of some of the most innovative, high quality golf shafts on the market. In order to focus its resources exclusively towards golf shafts, the golf division split from the parent company, Aerotech Sports, in October 2005 and formed a new company called Aerotech Golf LLC.

SteelFiber Technology

With the development of Aerotech’s SteelFiber golf shaft, players now have a new option: Graphite, Steel or SteelFiber. It’s an entirely new category of golf shaft that delivers the power of graphite with the stability of steel.

At the core of the SteelFiber shaft is filament-wound carbon fiber. The filament winding process yields a seamless and incredibly uniform bending golf shaft. The high strength-to-weight ratio of carbon fiber delivers the desired stiffness and strength properties at lighter weights than steel, and the lightweight properties of graphite increase clubhead speed and promote greater distance. In addition, the vibration dampening properties of graphite reduce the risk of injury and player fatigue during the round.

The steel fiber material is produced using a bundle drawing process that utilizes multiple reductions in the diameter of stainless steel wire. Once the wire becomes thin enough, 1,000 individual wires are bundled together and placed inside an iron tube that is further reduced until each individual steel wire is 8 microns in diameter. Each 8 micron steel filament is approximately 1/10th the diameter of a human hair. Finally, 3,000 individual filaments are combined and spun onto spools.

More than 59 miles of steel fiber is then applied to the surface of each shaft with extreme precision using a computer-controlled wet winding technique. Steel fiber is applied in the Hoop (90 degree) orientation to eliminate distortion of the shaft during the swing and at impact for exceptional stability.

SteelFiber Hoop Strength vs Graphite:SteelFiber
When comparing the hoop strength of a SteelFiber shaft to a standard graphite shaft under the same load, it is easy to see the superiority of the Aerotech technology. The SteelFiber’s superior hoop strength prevents the shaft from deforming during the swing and at impact for unmatched stability during the golf swing.

 

SteelFiberSteelFiber Hoop Strength vs Steel:
Comparing the hoop strength of a SteelFiber shaft versus a steel shaft under the same load is equally impressive. The SteelFiber shaft has superior hoop strength to even the steel shaft giving it better stability than the benchmark of the industry.

 

Effect of SteelFiber on Wall Thickness:Thickness
Because the density (weight) of the steel fiber is 5x that of graphite, the shaft weight can be manipulated with 1/5th the amount of material which helps minimize wall thickness. This eliminates the “boardy” feel often associated with thicker walled composite shafts promoting a more solid feel through impact.

 

 

 

Perimeter Weighted Golf Shaft
As the world’s first perimeter weighted golf shaft, Aerotech’s SteelFiber adds more stability and forgiveness with every shot. The steel fiber around the perimeter creates a greater density (weight) on the shaft’s surface that moves the shaft wall’s center of gravity (CG) outward, thus increasing the shaft’s Moment of Inertia (MOI).
