WRX Spotlight: AeroTech SteelFiber i Series shafts

Published

on

Product: AeroTech SteelFiber I Series shafts. (Shaft tested AeroTech SteelFiber i70cw 110X)

Pitch: A tour proven steel/graphite iron shaft that not only feels amazing but creates that high launch, low spin profile a lot of golfers are looking for.

AeroTech on the i Series: “As the world’s first perimeter-weighted golf shaft, 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).”

Our take on the AeroTech SteelFiber i Series shafts

Director of Original Content Johnny Wunder on the AeroTech SteelFiber i Series: I tried the AeroTech SteelFiber out of sheer curiosity. I saw Freddie had them, Sneds, Kuchar, and a bunch more ranting and raving about a lighter iron shaft that doesn’t sacrifice that solid Dynamic Gold feel. After speaking with Chris over at AeroTech, I went into the i70cw 110 X and LOVED them, especially in the longer clubs.

Now, truth be told, as a high-ball hitter, I did experience some problems from 8-PW. It was hard for me to keep the ball down into the wind. It’s not a ballooning thing either. Like the shaft was designed to do, it’s a high-launch, low-spin window it goes through. For me, as a player who likes to drive his short irons in a little flatter, it was a challenge. This isn’t a negative FYI, the shots are as solid as any. If I was to do it over, I would have played with the weighting bit and perhaps gone to the 125cw past the 7-iron.

These are quality shafts that will satisfy a range of players: they can be boardy and stout for the big hitters and soft/manageable for the others.

    I played the i95’s all last season and they were a total game changer for me, played the best golf of my life. Of course that’s not all due to the shafts but they were certainly a factor. This season I’m rolling into the newer fc90’s which are essentially the i95’s but in a flighted profile. So far I’m liking what I am seeing on the monitor but time will tell on the course whether I stick to them or go back to the i95’s. Either way I’m all sold on SteelFiber shafts for my game.

    I had my fitter get me set of steelfibre irons over several years ago and found them very comfortable and easy to use, they allowed me to drop at least 5 strokes in a round. I am sure technology has improved the quality since then – but they are expensive

    I tried to work with this company and they rudely arrogant and frankly unbearable. I spoke to my iron manufacturer and they said it was also their experience with aerotech. I would not want to put myself through this again.

    Posting an equipment spot on WRX and not referring to the product by its proper name is a bad look.

    It’s either an i70 or it’s an i110. It isn’t both.

    “I saw Freddie had them, Sneds, Kuchar …”. Written as if this Mr. Wunder is a close friend of these chaps. Delusions of grandeur.

    I think the writer means 110cw in X flex not “i70cw 110X” shafts.

    The i70 at 74 grams is a completely different animal and 36g lighter.

    I recently was fitted with these shafts. I love them. But…the cost is about the cost of the club itself.

    I switched to the i110CW’s when I purchased Titleist 2 irons 3 years ago away from S300’s which were creating too much spin. I love the control of the Aerotech shafts, and they also have helped relieve stress on two rebuilt elbows. S400s were too harsh in comparison. So the Aero shafts accomplished my goal. Never really cared who plays with them though.

Bridgestone launches new Augmented Reality web app: Bridgestone Golf Experience

Published

on

Bridgestone Golf has today introduced the ‘Bridgestone Golf Experience’ – a new Augmented Reality web app that brings Tiger Woods and other Bridgestone Tour players directly into your living room, pro shop, or clubhouse.

With the Bridgestone Golf Experience, consumers can utilize an augmented reality web application on their smartphone to see and hear Bridgestone Tour Staff members talk about the Tour B model they play and learn why it might be a good fit for them.

“At Bridgestone we’re all about pushing the envelope of innovation. The new Bridgestone Golf Experience is a perfect example of this philosophy – players who try the new web app will be amazed at the quality of the experience while also being directed to the best Tour B model for their game.” – Elliot Mellow, Golf Ball Marketing Manager at Bridgestone Golf

To launch the web app, players can simply visit bridgestonegolf.com or visit a retail location that carries Bridgestone products.

At select locations a number of additional QR codes will also be available that not only launch the BGE app but provide unique content with the company’s staff players that is not otherwise available. 

My Bridgestone Tour B dozen box or sleeve can be used to initiate the BGE app, and depending on which box or sleeve that is scanned, a different Bridgestone staff player will appear virtually and talk about the model they play on Tour.

For the Tour B X, you get Matt Kuchar, for the Tour B XS, you get Tiger Woods, for the TourB RX, you get Lexi Thompson, and for the Tour B RXS, you get Fred Couples.

To get the full Bridgestone Golf Experience covering all four Tour B golf balls takes about ten minutes and can be enjoyed on any smartphone. You can download the web application now at bridgestonegolf.com.
