Fujikura officially introduces Speeder Evolution IV shafts

Published

on

All the way back in the beginning of August at the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, we spotted a new, “Japan” release of a Fujikura Speeder Evolution IV shaft — we were left to speculate about its materials, specs and profile, however. Today, Fujikura officially introduced the Speeder Evolution IV shafts, and we now have all of the information.

Fujikura’s line of Speeder shafts began with the Speeder 757, and it has been one of the most popular shaft lines on Tour since the late 1990s. Before this release, there was also a Speeder Evolution I (highest launch, mid-spin), II (low-to-mid launch, low spin) and III (mid-launch, mid-spin). The new Evolution IV is most like the Evo II; it’s designed for low launch and low spin, but “has a slightly softer mid-to-tip section to increase launch angle while maintaining low torque and spin,” according to Fujikura.

The Evo IV shaft also uses new materials and constructions including a new high-performance intermediate modulus 70-ton material for lightweight stability, and an “Engineered Outer Bias Technology” for a smoother loading feel. Like previous Speeder Evolution shafts, the Evo IV uses Metal Composite Technology, 90 Ton Carbon Fiber and Maximum Fiber Content pre-preg.

Fujikura’s Evolution IV will be available from 56-to-77 grams (569, 661 and 757) with flexes ranging from SR up to X. They will be available for $400 (MSRP) starting on October 1, selling exclusively at JDSClubs.com, and available through Fujikura’s national charter dealer on November 1.

    So a site that entrenches itself in the equipment world of golf should not be mentioning the release of a new version of a shaft that was vastly popular? And Heaven forbid a manufacture try to improve on a popular model using new tech and materials.

      What was wrong with the previous old models? Should they all be chucked out and replaced with the new and improved model shafts so you can finally hit the ball solidly? And what happens when they come out with another model claiming superiority over the previous model? Watcha gonna do then??

        I didn’t say that there was anything wrong with the new models, but as far as performance goes using new tech and new materials could improve a shafts play-ability, feel, consistency. if a company is not improving on there current line of products they wouldn’t be in business for very long.

        Also just because a company comes out with a new model doesn’t mean its going to out perform for some players, I get that but for some it can. The what was wrong with the previous model comment is an odd one because everything over they years have had new renditions not just in golf but cars, structures. everything evolves (pun intended) over the years why would that stop with shafts? Unless you are still hitting your driver with a TT DG S300 driver shaft that is.

      Only you know the answer to that question. And if you aren’t talking about the information about upcoming products, why not use things like NoScript and uBlock Origin?

      How can you say that when the GolfWRX staff mimics Fujikura with this information?:
      “The Evo IV shaft also uses new materials and constructions including a new high-performance intermediate modulus 70-ton material for lightweight stability, and an “Engineered Outer Bias Technology” for a smoother loading feel. Like previous Speeder Evolution shafts, the Evo IV uses Metal Composite Technology, 90 Ton Carbon Fiber and Maximum Fiber Content pre-preg.”
      It’s just gotta feel and play better than anything before!!!!!!

Mizuno JPX 919 Tour Forged, 919 Forged, and 919 Hot Metal hit USGA’s conforming list

Published

on

As alerted by our always investigative GolfWRX Forum Members, three new Mizuno JPX irons have shown up recently on the USGA Conforming Clubs list; JPX 919 Forged (there is no image of the RH version, but there is of the LH), JPX 919 Hot Metal (and LH), and a JPX 919 Tour Forged iron.

Although still unannounced and unreleased by Mizuno, it’s likely these JPX 919 irons will be the replacements for the previous JPX 900 series. If you remember, Brooks Koepka won back-to-back U.S. Opens using JPX 900 Tour irons; now, it seems there may be a replacement for that iron on the way, judging by the USGA Conforming List.

Check out the Mizuno JPX 919 irons below, as listed on the USGA Confirming list.

SPOTTED: Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons

Published

on

Photos have recently popped up in our GolfWRX Forums of Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons. It’s been nearly two years since the company released it’s previous Z565, Z765 and Z965 irons, so it’s possible (if not likely), based on nomenclature, these could be the replacements for that series.

The photos in our forums show Z785 short irons (5-PW) and Z785 long irons (4 and 3), but it does not appear that the Z785 irons shown in the photos are driving irons, so it’s likely these photos come from a mixed set.

We do not have any official tech or release information about new irons from Srixon at this time, so we’re left to speculate for the time being. What do you think about the photos of these Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons?

Check out the photos of each below, and click here for more photos and discussion.
