Hireko Announces New Apollo Acculite 85 Steel

New Steel Shaft Is The Best of Both Worlds – Graphite Weight With Consistency Of Steel

CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA – July 21, 2008 – Hireko Golf introduces the latest in sub ultra-lightweight steel shafts, the new Apollo Acculite 85 Steel Shaft.

“The Apollo Acculite 85 has a very responsive tip yet provides an incredible combination of both feel and accuracy”, states Jeff Summitt, Hireko’s Technical Director. “The cut weight is merely 10 grams more than some of the most popular graphite iron shafts. For those looking at graphite as an option to decrease overall weight to reduce fatigue and to increase swing speed and distance should highly consider this shaft.”

The Apollo Acculite 85 is geared more for golfers with smooth and moderate swing tempos. There are no surprises as this shaft plays true to the flex. In performance testing this shaft it scored high marks not only in irons but in hybrids as well.”

This 40 inch iron shaft has a cut weight 20 grams lighter than most lightweight steel shafts providing additional feel, trajectory and distance golfers seek from a graphite offering, yet the stability that steel in renowned for. Apollo has successfully combined the best of both worlds together in an affordable high performance steel shaft.

The Apollo Acculite 85 Steel Shaft is available in separate R (regular) and S (stiff) flexes. They can be ordered online at www.hirekogolf.com or by calling 800-367-8912.
