KEY ASCENT TECHNOLOGIES

ASCENT™ Ultralight models deliver an easy, high launch angle without the typical

IMPACT STABILIZATION. Impact Stabiliztion minimizes deflection and face rotation using a tungsten-infused prepreg to create a heavier zone just below a stiffer section of the tip. Heavier mass of ISZ also contributes to added ball speed

compromises of an ultra-lightweight shaft. Featuring Focused Mass Technology (FMT™), a precise weighting section that utilizes heavier, tungsten-infused prepreg in the butt end to help players turn through the ball better for stronger, straighter/ drawn ball flight. ASCENT™ Ultralight models also include FlyDrive™ Technology – a

FLYDRIVE TECHNOLOGY. FlyDrive™ Technology, a new application which utilizes a Visco-Elastic Isolation Layer (VEIL) to improve the stability, feel and peripheral strength of thin-walled shafts with little added weight or thickness.

new application inspired by a similar innovation in high-performance fly fishing rods. A full-length Visco-Elastic Isolation Layer (VEIL) is added to improve overall strength and feel while bolstering the shaft’s resistance to “ovaling,” a common deficiency in thinner-walled designs. FlyDrive™ adds very little weight or thickness so ASCENT™

FOCUSED MASS TECHNOLOGY. A precise weighting feature for ultralightweight shafts that helps promote a better turn through the ball at impact for stronger, straighter/drawn ball flight, using the same tungsten-infused prepreg as in Impact Stabilization.

Ultralight shafts remain quick and fast with a satisfying, solid feel at impact.

BEYOND SPEED. “Ball speed, of course, is a critical part of the equation. With ASCENT, though, our goal was to go beyond speed to deliver on technology to support stability, control, and the tight dispersion players have come to expect from ALDILA performance shafts.” - Zane Nuttall, Manager, Product Development + Innovation

NO-COMPROMISE ULTRALIGHT SHAFT. ALDILA® ASCENT™ Ultralight models are for any player – especially moderate swing speed players –  who want to improve ball flight and distance through a straighter, more stable ultra-lightweight shaft.
