Aldila Introduces Rouge Black 110 Shaft

Aldila is proud to announce the latest offering in the Limited Edition Rogue shaft series. The Rogue Black 110 has been used in the driver of the winner of the first two majors of the year. The Limited Edition Rogue Black 110 is available in both 60 and 70gram models in Tour S and Tour X flexes. Aldila will begin shipping the Limited Edition, Made in the USA version of the Rogue Black beginning July 13, 2015. The Rogue Black has a suggested retail price of $799.

The Aldila Limited Edition Rogue Black shafts employ ‘Graphitic Carbon’ with a modulus of 110 MSI (million pounds per square inch). The modulus of the graphite material used in typical graphite shafts ranges from 33 MSI to 55 MSI. By incorporating this new material, Aldila is able to make the shaft stiffer and lower torque without adding weight. At the same time, the placement of the material in top third of the shaft (grip end) allows the shaft manufacturer to slightly counterbalance the shaft to work well with today’s heavier driver heads and the longer length of modern drivers.

Worldwide, players using Aldila Rogue shafts have now won 21 events. With results like these, there’s no surprise the Aldila Rogue continues to be the most popular driver shaft series in play since its introduction on Tour.
