Aldila Begins Shipments of New NV™ Iron Shafts Golf Digest Highlights NV™ Irons on Their Buzz List

POWAY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 16, 2005 -- Aldila, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALDA) golf's leading designer and manufacturer of high performance graphite wood and iron shafts, including the popular NV™ graphite shaft line, has begun shipping their new NV™ Iron shaft.

"The NV™ Iron shaft is a natural progression in our product line," said Michael J. Rossi, Aldila's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The NV™ Wood shaft continues to be the most popular branded wood shaft in the market today and we believe the NV™ Iron shaft will have similar success in the premium iron market," continued Mr. Rossi. "We brought the NV Iron shaft to the PGA Tour at the beginning of this year for testing and evaluation of performance. To say the least, we are extremely pleased with the final product," said Mr. Rossi. At a recent PGA Tour event, using the NV™ Iron shaft, Rich Beem hit over 90% of the greens in regulation -- leading the field. Rich commented after the round, "This is how power should feel."

Golf Digest featured the NV™ Iron shaft in their July issue Buzz List. The Golf Digest Buzz List is their monthly guide to the best selling, most talked about products in golf, based on research of the Golf World Business' 100 Best Golf Shops and other sources.

The NV™ Iron shaft is available in two models, both featuring low torque, progressive tip-flex and constant weight designs -- the Pro Model, 105 grams or the Tour Model, 130 grams in both parallel and taper tip.
