Aldila Releases Rogue - #1 Driver Shaft Model On Tour

 
describe the image

The most popular driver shaft on the PGA Tour is now available to consumers. After dominating on Tour in the latter half of 2014, Aldila is now shipping its highly-anticipated Rogue Silver and Rogue Black shafts through leading clubmakers, fitters and distributors worldwide. 

Aldila's Rogue has been the #1 driver shaft model on the PGA Tour at 34 consecutive events, dating back to the 2014 season, according to the Darrell Survey. It has already been used in the driver of the winners of 10 total tour events. The Rogue dominated the end of the 2014 PGA Tour season winning 6 of the last 12 events, including 3 out of 4 FedEx Cup playoff events.

The Rogue Silver has a stiff tip section for a mid to low launch with low spin, while the Rogue Black has a medium-stiff tip section and slightly higher torque for a mid-high launch with moderate spin.

"The Rogue offers unmatched performance and consistency through the use of advanced, rare, and extremely expensive aerospace materials," said John Oldenburg, Aldila's Vice President of Engineering and Product Development. "No other golf shaft on the market today uses the advanced, extremely high modulus, 'Graphitic Carbon' fibers that provide performance characteristics never before available in a golf shaft. By combining graphitic carbon with Aldila's NexGen Micro Laminate Technology, and a constant taper profile, the Rogue provides exceptional feel, power, and consistency. The unique counterbalanced mass distribution also creates a shaft that matches perfectly with today's modern, high-tech, heavier driver heads."

According to Oldenburg, all of the available tour proven Rogue models employ 'Graphitic Carbon' with a modulus ranging from 95 MSI (million pounds per square inch) in the Rogue Black, to 110 MSI in the Rogue Silver, and 125 MSI in the "Limited Edition - Made in U.S.A." Rogue. The modulus of the graphite material used in typical graphite shafts ranges from 33 MSI to 55 MSI. By incorporating this new material, Aldila (aldila.com) is able to make the shaft stiffer and lower torque without adding weight. At the same time, the placement of the material in top third of the shaft (grip end) allows the shaft manufacturer to slightly counterbalance the shaft to work well with today's heavier driver heads and the longer length of modern drivers.

The stiff tip Rogue Silver will be available in 60 and 70 gram versions in R, S, and X flexes. The mid-stiff tip Rogue Black will be available in 60, 70, 80 versions as well as an 85 gram hybrid shaft in R, S, and X flexes.

Rogue shafts are available now through select distributors and clubmakers with a suggested retail price of $449. 

Aldila (aldila.com) offers patented shaft design technologies that consistently outperform other shafts available. This technology advantage is the reason Aldila is the most popular graphite shaft among top touring professionals. These top professionals recognize Aldila's advanced performance and year after year that there are more Aldila wood and hybrid shafts in play than any other shaft manufacturer on Tour. Whether the Micro Laminate Technology™ first introduced in Aldila NV™, the most popular graphite ever or today's Nex Generation Micro Laminate Technology, Aldila engineers are continually pushing and advancing high performance graphite golf shaft technology well beyond any other manufacturer.

Tour Blue & Tour Green helps Aldila win wood, hybrid shaft manufacturer counts for 11th consecutive week on tour
POWAY, Calif. - Using Aldila's new low-torque Tour Iron shafts with RIP Technology™ in his 4-9 iron and pitching wedge as well as Aldila's RIP Beta shaft in his 3 wood, the winner of the Colonial Plaza Invitational picked up his 3rd career PGA Tour victory winning by one stroke. He hit 71.4 percent of his fairways and 75 percent of his greens, which ranked him inside the top 10 in the field for both categories. He finished with a 14-under 266 (67-67-66-66) and captured his fourth top-10 finish of the season.

"Aldila engineers have combined exclusive carbon fiber materials and resins with RIP (Reverse Interlaminar Placement) Technology™ to create the Tour Iron shafts," said Stewart Bahl, Aldila's Marketing Manager. "Incorporating exclusive manufacturing technology acquired from Aldila's composite arrow making company, Aldila's engineers were able to make an iron shaft that is straighter and more consistent than any other iron shaft, steel or graphite. The Tour Iron shaft's proprietary materials make them lower in torque," said Bahl. "At the end of the day, we feel that this is the product that will finally give the player a better performing shaft than steel."

With 29 new Tour Green and Tour Blue shafts in play, Aldila won the wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Aldila had 8 more wood shafts and 7 more hybrid shafts in play than the next leading shaft manufacturer, according to the Darrell Survey. The double count win marks the 11th consecutive week that Aldila has won both shaft counts on the PGA Tour including the Masters. The Most Accurate Driver at the Crowne also used Aldila's Tour Green shaft in his driver. He finished first in overall driving accuracy with a rating percentage of 78.57.

"The Aldila Tour Green is a stiff tip shaft with moderate torque designed for lower/penetrating ball flight producing a lower spin rate," said Bahl. "The Tour Blue is moderate stiff tip shaft and very low torque designed for a slightly higher ball flight with low to moderate spin rate. The shaft profiles have a constant taper to provide exceptional feel and a smooth, controlled release. Tour Green and Tour Blue shafts are made with the latest generation of Aldila's Micro Laminate materials (MLT). The ultra thin, ultra strong material allows for the construction of a shaft with outstanding performance and unparalleled consistency."
