The Fujikura Fuel is a low-launch, low-spin shaft that uses special construction and a high kick point that the company says gives golfers a tighter dispersion and a softer feel than Fujikura’s previous low-launch, low-spin shafts.

Dustin Johnson used a 70-gram Tour Spec version of the shaft to win the PGA Tour’s season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions, giving the company tons of momentum heading into 2013.

Along with the standard Fuel shaft, which is available for $225 in a wide range of flexes and 50, 60 and 70-gram weights, the company has created a 60-gram version of the shaft Johnson used to win the Tournament of champions in stiff and x-stiff flexes.

    Got the Fujikura Fuel 60X in my Ping G25 9.5* and it is amazing. It has improved my launch consistently +/- 13*. This set-up feels amazing, it has improved the accuracy of my tee shots and given me the ability to hit the ball both ways with ease!

    Yep, I threw a Fuji fuel in my R11 and its a perfect match. I had a vs proto x flex, moved to a rip’d vs proto x flex and then into the fuel in x flex.

    Each progression brought my ball flight down (good for me, I hit a medium high ball in general) but the fuel seems to have really tightened the dispersion.

    I hate to complain, but if we keep progressing on this route of making it impossible to hit a bad shot none of us will need to swing the club anymore. I am only half-joking…

    I have a Fujikura still shaft in my new Cobra AMP Cell driver. It’s top quality and is the right fit for my golf swing speed.

    One of the best shafts on any tour.
