Aldila has introduced several new exciting shafts this year. Let’s start off with the En Fuego series or what I like to refer to as the “Pepper” shafts. These three models offer something a little different from the norm. While each shaft has the same very light weight, they produce three distinctly different ball flights.
The Habanera goes high, Serrano low and the Wasabi in-between. I’ll also let you on a little secret. One feature you won’t see in the product literature is that the balance point of each of these shafts is shifted 2” closer to the butt end.
Are you looking for more distance? Of course you are. But how can you achieve that? You can either use a heavier head or you can make the club longer. In either situation the much higher balance point will prevent the club from becoming head heavy and unwieldy. Now all you need to decide on is which variety of pepper (or how much heat) is best for you.
These shafts are getting some major play as a few of the major manufacturers will use these same shafts in their latest offerings. The Wasabi will be one of two stock options for the Adams Speedline FAST 10 drivers, while the Serrano will be one of the stock options in Pings G15 drivers, both of which retail for $300 or more. You can get the exact same shaft technology in an Acer, Power Play or Dynacraft brand driver for much less.
People love technology they can see, like Aldila’s patented S-Core which is visible in their Voodoo series. The S-Core helps reduce shaft ovalization during the swing so you are more accurate and obtain more distance. There is now a new Voodoo Hybrid shaft to round out the series.
This might take a little explaining, but the new NV Voodoo is different from the original Voodoo, not just because one is green and the other red. You see the original Voodoo was based on the VS Proto and all those advance fibers and carbon-nanotubes, but with the S-Core technology added. The NV Voodoo is like the original NV series (you know, like the green one) but with the S-Core added. So you get the same benefit of the S Core, but the NV Voodoo isn’t quite as stout in the tip. That’s the difference!
Speaking of the NV series, Aldila has it right this year with the state of the economy. Long time favorites like the NV and NVS series, are now at an astonishing new lower price. Now you can get some serious shafts for some small coin.
Lastly, Aldila has introduced a hybrid for their Value Series (VL / VX). Not only does this provide a low cost hybrid offering, but this finally gives ladies and seniors a hybrid specific model in our product line.
These are just a few of the Aldila shafts that Hireko has to offer. It is no wonder that year after year, Aldila shafts are favorites not only on the professional circuits but in bag all over the place.
