AeroTech CrosssectionAerotech has a long history of providing shafts to club makers. The SteelFiber is a unique construction, a filament wound carbon fiber core is is wrapped with a braided steel wire surface layer. This process is explained in greater detail on the Aerotech website. This review is about the parallel SteelFiber iron shafts. The Aerotech SteelFiber constant weight taper shafts were previously reviewed.

Aerotech SteelFiber shafts have more PGA Tour wins than any other graphite iron shaft in history. Steel iron shafts continue to dominate tour play, but Aerotech has proven that carbon fiber composite shafts are competitive. As you look at the tip torque numbers of these shafts compared to steel in the same weight range you will not see any differences. Aerotech has proved that carbon fiber iron shafts are solid alternatives to steel. If you like the feel, profile and weight, you should have no doubt about the performance. Lets look at the profiles.

Enjoy and Good Golf,

The Aerotech SteelFiber shafts have the lowest hoop deformation measurements as I have seen. The article about hoop strength in the technical section compares hoop strength of different shafts. The graphics there compare AeroTech SteelFibers to other shafts. If you believe as many do, that hoop deformation is a source of dispersion, you should test a SteelFiber iron shaft.
