Aldila NV and VS Proto Used to win Shell Houston Open

The winner of the Shell Houston Open picked up his second career PGA Tour victory with the help of Aldila’s NV™ and VS Proto™ shafts in his hybrid clubs. With the win, he earns two more years of eligibility on the PGA Tour, a start at next year’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions and a trip to Augusta for this year’s Masters Tournament.

Both shafts feature Aldila’s Micro Laminate Technology™, which provides the player with unmatched performance and incredible feel.

“Aldila’s NV and VS Proto shafts feature Aldila’s patent-pending Micro Laminate Technology™ that provides the players enhanced power, consistent flex and precise feel,” said Stewart Bahl, Aldila’s Marketing Manager. “The consistent taper and slim profile produces a shaft with consistent performance, flex and feel throughout the length of the shaft while eliminating the dull “boardy” feel of other shafts on the market.”

For the third consecutive week, “The Hottest Shafts In Golf” captured the wood and hybrid shaft counts on the PGA Tour and six of the Top 10 finishers at the Shell Houston Open played Aldila shafts. As more and more players make the switch to Aldila’s new Tour Green and Tour Blue shafts in their drivers and fairway woods, Aldila continues to lead the wood and hybrid shaft counts on the PGA Tour. A total of 35 Tour Blue/Green were in play at the Shell Houston Open. Aldila had 22 more wood shafts and 10 more hybrid shafts in play than the next leading shaft manufacturer at the Shell Houston Open, according to the Darrell Survey.

Northern Trust Open champ captures 1st Tour victory using Aldila’s NV shafts

POWAY, Calif.  – At the Northern Trust Open, Aldila showed why they are still the #1 graphite shaft on the PGA Tour. “The Hottest Shafts In Golf” played an integral role for the winner and Aldila also captured the driver, wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts.

The winner of the Northern Trust Open relied on the unmatched performance and incredible feel of Aldila’s NV shafts in his Driver, 3 Wood and hybrid club en route to his first PGA Tour victory.  He carded an 11-under 273 (68-66-70-69) and eventually won on the second playoff hole. With the victory, he jumped to the fourth spot in the FedEx Cup Standings and earned a check for $1,188,000.

“Aldila’s NV™ features Aldila’s patent-pending Micro Laminate Technology™ that provides the players enhanced power, consistent flex and precise feel,” said Stewart Bahl, Aldila’s Marketing Manager. “The consistent taper and slim profile produces a shaft with consistent performance, flex and feel throughout the length of the shaft while eliminating the dull “boardy” feel of other shafts on the market.”

Led by their hottest shaft series, RIP, Aldila swept the shaft manufacturer counts at the Northern Trust Open. “The Hottest Shafts In Golf” had five more driver shafts, 33 more wood shafts and nearly twice as many hybrid shafts in play than their closest competitor, according to the Darrell Survey. RIP (Reverse Interlaminar Placement) completely transforms shaft design from the inside out providing players with shot control.

Two of Aldila’s latest additions to the NV line is the RIP’d NV and NV 44 Magnum. The RIP’d NV incorporates the best performance attributes from two of Aldila’s most innovative shaft designs -- the ‘perfect feel’ and slim, stable shaft profile of the Aldila NV® and the unprecedented control and accuracy of the Aldila RIP.

The NV® 44 Magnum is the first truly high performance ultra lightweight sub-50 gram shaft design.  Typical ultra light shafts give up strength, flex, torsional stiffness, and overall stability in an effort to chase lighter weight. Aldila engineers have combined exclusive carbon fiber materials and resins with an innovative “Magnum” shaft profile and our exclusive Micro Laminate Technology® to achieve the highest level of performance possible in an ultra lightweight shaft.  By taking advantage of the mechanical benefits provided by it’s unique structural profile, the NV 44 Magnum offers optimum flex and torque characteristics for the better player while still maintaining the incredible feel that made the original NV the best selling shaft in history.
