Shaft Manufacturing Process.

        The process of manufacturing a graphite shaft has several distinct phases. Different designs of Aldila shafts require variations in both the manufacturing process and the materials used. In traditional shaft designs, treated graphite known as "prepreg" (See Composite Materials Manufacturing Process) is rolled onto metal rods known as mandrels. The graphite is then baked at high temperatures to harden the material into a golf shaft. At the end of the manufacturing process, the shafts are painted and stylized using a variety of colors, patterns and designs, including logos and other custom identification. Through each phase of this process, the Company performs quality control reviews to ensure continuing high standards of quality and uniformity to meet exacting customer specifications. The Company's shaft manufacturing facilities are located in Tijuana, Mexico, Zhuhai, China and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Over the past several years the majority of the Company's shafts have been manufactured in China. The primary materials currently used in the Company's graphite shafts are prepreg, paints, inks and heat transfer decals.
