Aerotech Volant Golf Shaft Review

Aerotech Volant Iron Shaft Review

AeroTech Volant P ImageHow do you take the shaft making technology that involves wrapping spin woven steel wire around a graphite core and make a light weight shaft. The Aerotech SteelFiber is the most popular composite iron shaft on the PGA tour. But it is built by wrapping a layer of steel wire around the outside of the carbon fiber core. And we all know steel is not light.

Aerotech’s customers, club fitters needed something light. They were impressed with the SteelFiber, but needed something lighter. Especially those fitting in Florida. The designers at Aerotech knew how to spin weaver micro thin wire, why not do the same with carbon fiber. They took the SteelFiber manufacturing process and wrapped a layer of spin woven carbon fiber over a lighter weight core and created a line of shafts called Volant. The Aerotech Volant is available in 52 grams to 64 grams in 41″ parallel blanks. And much like the steel wrapped SteelFiber is has one of the highest hoop strengths in its weight class.

Lets take at look at the measurements.

Enjoy and Good Golf,

Lets here what a Volant fitter has to say about this unique shaft:
“The Aerotech SteelFiber’s little brother, Volant, gives me tons of options to fit golfers with slower, smoother swing speeds. Although the Volant shafts also come in stiff flex (f4) they are better suited for slower and smoother swings. Volant’s two weights (55gr & 65gr) give plenty of options for those who benefit from ultra light weight shafts and super smooth feel.
The Volant is surprisingly sturdy for an ultralight. For juniors, women and seniors, the Volant lets me create light yet controllable clubs. I can give the slower swing speed golfer great feel and comfort throughout the round. In fact, I once built a set of clubs for a senior player which were just about 100 grams lighter than steel shafted clubs he was playing. Volant’s smooth feel and slick look pairs well with any clubs head.”
