Aldila’s VooDoo gives Tour players the winning edge

8.17am 6th August 2008 - Corporate

The patent pending S-core technology (stabilized core) of the new Aldila VooDoo shaft provided several Tour players with the winning edge this weekend. Using the VooDoo in his driver and 3-wood, the winner of the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open enjoyed increased distance and outstanding accuracy on his way to a seven-stroke victory over the field and a $540,000 first-place check.

“Since the VooDoo’s introduction on Tour players continue to provide us with incredible feedback,” said Mike Rossi, Aldila’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Although it’s only been on the Tour for a short period of time, the VooDoo has recorded five wins, which we consider the ultimate validation of our new S-core technology.”

At the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, three of the top seven players also experienced the ‘magic’ of the VooDoo including Aldila staff member Stuart Appleby who finished second playing with the VooDoo shaft in all of his woods.

Using Aldila’s VS Proto™ hybrid shaft, the winner of the Bridgestone Invitational captured his first World Golf Championships event and 32nd victory on the PGA Tour to become the international player with the most wins in PGA Tour history.

‘The Hottest Shafts in Golf’ rounded out their Tour domination this weekend as the winner of the 29th U.S. Senior Open won with their NV® in his bag.

Aldila was the leading graphite shaft manufacturer for new drivers, fairway woods and hybrid clubs for 2007 according to the Darrell Survey U.S.
