Aerotech Ti-Fiber Driver Shaft Review

Aerotech Ti-Fiber Driver Shaft Review

Aerotech steel fiber iron shafts are the only graphite shaft that have been consistently played on the tours. The shaft is unique, a thin steel wire is wrapped over a filament wound graphite core. The filament wrapping process, done correctly, creates inherently round shafts by eliminating any possibility of a sheet overlap that can occur in sheet wrapped designs. Until now, this design was limited to iron, hybrid and fairway shafts. Steel is heavy compared to graphite. Too heavy to produce a long driver shaft in the common weight ranges. That problem was overcome in the Aerotech Ti-Fiber driver shaft by using Titanium wire in place of steel.

Listen to Chris Hilleray, the owner of Aerotech explain the shaft at the 2018 PGA Merchandise show.

Mitsubishi OTi Taper Iron Shaft Review

MRCOTi_BradingMitsubishi Rayon has expanded the braided OTi iron shaft into a constant weight tapered shafts. This is explained in greater detail in the review of the OTi Parallel shaft The OTi shafts starts with a new form of prepreg they call Tow. The carbon fibers are arranged in bundles, the way a steel cable is made. The bundles are impregnated with resin and then woven into a braid. That braid bundle is then slipped over the mandrel. You might think at this point no spine. There is a common misconception that spine is caused by sheet overlap or welds. My experience is that it is the result of roundness or more specifically lack roundness of the shaft. In carbon fiber, that is mostly caused by outer wall sanding. The redial consistency numbers show below the measurement charts rates this important quality consideration.
