The aerotech steelfiber shaft was my best performing composite shaft in 2012 and the same on the pga tour to date (3 years running). Each iron shaft has a premium graphite composite core wrapped w/ 59 MILES of steel fiber! Added distance + feel + workability. If you want more distance & tighter dispersion than your existing steel iron shafts then contact us for a fitting!
Due to the weather forecast for Sunday we will be postponing this event (new date to be posted soon). Hodson Golf is proud to announce that we are now a limited TourSPX dealer for UST/Mamiya. We will soon be receiving some current tour-prototype shafts currently being tested on the PGA tour RIGHT NOW. Once these shafts are in-hand we will include these tour prototypes along with those from Fujikura for this event-stay tuned!
On Sunday March 3th Hodson Golf will be hosting a limited pre-release event at our fitting studio. Hodson Golf will be offering launch monitor demonstration fittings featuring the new lineup of 2013 Fujikura shafts including the much anticipated Fuel series in addition to a very limited number of Motore Speeder 6.3 and 7.3 tour spec shafts that are only available on tour. This event will be limited to only 7 people (due to the limited number of these exclusive shafts) and will be pre-offered to our members first. The event fee is $125 (free to our premium members) with the fee charge going towards the purchase price of any fujikura shaft.
Bridgestone has just released the industry’s most detailed analysis on custom ball fittings. Bridgestone compiled data from over 200,000 individual ball fittings which they provide year round at select events. Utilizing these numbers along with player testing on the tour, Hodson Golf can now input the numbers from your launch monitor fitting in order to determine your optimum ball. Hodson Golf will be providing this service free on all Launch Monitor fitting sessions.

Fujikura has been fine tuning this bad boy from some time. Shaft technology has really had some dramatic changes over the last two years alone but this shaft takes things to the next level. I’ve copied a release from Fujikura below but in Lamens terms – this shaft is amazing.
Fujikura FUEL bursts into 2013 incorporating never before seen FUEL rod technology. The revolutionary advancements generate more power and speed, promote tighter dispersion and guarantee an increase in overall distance.
“We are very excited about the new FUEL line because of its light weight construction yet explosive power,” says Dave Schnider President and COO of Fujikura Golf. “It has already solidified its position to be one of the hottest shafts on the market with a validating win at the Dunhill Links Championship last October”.
2013 will feature the launch of Fujikura FUEL. This is to be the first in a new line of products in the next generation of Fujikura shafts. With FUEL, you can see where your energy is coming from and how it is transferred with a 360˚ view of the COMBUSTION CHAMBER, which houses our proprietary FUEL R.O.D. TECHNOLOGY. As you swing, energy flows through the FUEL R.O.D. and into the Load-Injector Tip, channeling your power through the shaft down to the club head. FUEL uniquely combines these technologies to generate greater distance and accuracy on a more consistent basis.
“The amount of technology incorporated in this shaft is incomprehensible,” says Pat McCoy Director of Technical Services. Fuel Rod Technology, comprised of the Combustion Chamber and the Load Injector Tip, allows for a more efficient transfer of energy down the shaft, generating more power and speed. The Combustion Chamber consists of a series of high modulus carbon plies oriented at 45 and 90 degrees, which reduces overall friction and ovaling during the loading and unloading of the shaft. Simply put, energy is stored at the top of the swing and explodes down the shaft during the downswing. The load injector tip takes the stored energy that is transferred down the shaft from the combustion chamber and injects it into the club head for a more explosive and powerful impact.
