Sales of Aldila’s Pink NV shafts helps raise money for Breast Cancer research

In keeping with a tradition that started last year, Aldila will again donate proceeds raised from the sales of their Pink NV TM and NVS TM graphite shafts to breast cancer research. They originally designed the pink shaft as a one of a kind for LPGA Tour player Paula Creamer, who is on Aldila’s Advisory Staff, and loves the color pink.

“After Paula experienced multiple wins using the Pink NV TM shaft, we were inundated with requests for the shaft so we decided to offer them on a limited basis,” said Stewart Bahl, Aldila’s Marketing Manager.

What appears to be a crossover in the latest fashion trend of pink becoming the “new black” for men, demands for the Are-You-Man-Enough Pink finish on Aldila’s shafts have been surprisingly strong. The distinctive Pink finish covers the unique Micro Laminate Technology™ of the NV and NVS that provides the golfer with enhanced power, consistent flex and precise feel.

“The growing number of requests for pink shafts led to our offering the shaft in every weight and flex combination of both the NV and NVS woods,” Bahl said. “We donate a portion of the proceeds from the Pink shafts sold through distribution and those sold through our OEM partners,” he said.

Great Divider Eclipse Pink Ribbon bag benefits breast cancer research

Great Divider, the company who patented the 14-way full length divider system to organize and protect your clubs, has launched their lightweight, crushproof golf bag featuring the Eclipse.

Not only do you get a great bag at a great price, when you buy the Pink Eclipse, but it benefits others too.

“With the purchase of a Great Divider Pink Ribbon Eclipse, we will donate a portion of the sales to cancer organizations devoted to finding a cure, assisting breast cancer patients and educating people in an effort to reduce the amount of breast cancer cases worldwide,” said Sutter.

Some features of the Eclipse that make it more attractive to the consumer are its magnetic snap shut pockets, a shallow, clear-windowed cell phone pocket, an EZ Clean Magnetic Club Cloth, a quick grip putter clip, a fur-lined valuables pocket, a complimentary matching rain hood, a Velcro glove holder and an interior key clip

“The Eclipse is definitely the best priced bag with the most options,” said Sutter.
