Aldila is one of the biggest names in golf. Founded in 1972, Aldila has produced some classic graphite shafts such as Low Torque and HM40. These were industry benchmarks of their time in the 80s and 90s. For the new millennium Aldila’s new classic – NV – launched in 2004, has fast become one of the most popular shafts on tours around the world.
In 1994, Aldila embarked on a strategy to integrate manufacturing operations with the start-up of prepreg manufacture at their Poway, California facility. Over 10 million pounds of prepreg have been produced since the prepreg facility opened.
Today, the Aldila prepreg operation is widely recognized as the most advanced production facility of its kind in the United States. This facility also provides much of the prepreg used in the aerospace and defence industries.
The Aldila NV features Aldila’s exclusive Micro Laminate Technology. This new technology offers the player enhanced performance and feel. The consistent taper and slim profile produces a shaft with consistent performance, flex and feel from the butt-end to the tip. Micro Laminate Technology – Most graphite shafts are made from between 6-10 layers of fibre sheets.
Aldila NV uses more than 20 layers of ultra-thin aerospace-grade prepreg. It allows a slim, stable profile and uniform flex and feel. Similar technology is used to build composite jets, such as the Stealth bomber.
