Where can I get a 7tx and 9tx?!...I have the 7x and love it
You won't be getting a 9tx but the TX is just tour stock and Fuji says it's not dffierent than the X

So their is literally no difference t between a 7tx and the 7x I have in my f8+?

Yep. Same shaft.

Wrong, read my posts and call Fujikura Tech support. The 7x 7-x and 7tx are different shafts. Hitting them side by side on a launch monitor makes this pretty obvious.

Can you tell us the difference between the black 6x and Black 6tx for example? Also could one get this through a charter dealer? I love my 8tx in my fairway and want a 6tx for my driver, but would prefer not purchase items that are being sold against your wishes or from individuals not licensed to do so.

They are the same shaft just labeled differently. Apologies for the confusion. TX was not intended to be retail release for 60g.

In this post Fuji says they are the same
Tour issue M4 8.5 w/ Kuro Kage dual core 70TX tipped 1 44
Tour issue M1 T3 14.3 Kuro Kage dual core 80TX tipped 1 42.5 or Diamana bf 80TX tipped 1

The 7x and 7tx are the same shaft. I received a 7tx as part of the review team. I asked about it because I surely thought it was too much shaft for me and I was reassured that it is in fact the same shaft.

Who did you ask? Someone in the sales/marketing department (like the rep who posts here) or someone on the technical support team? There are conflicting stories coming out of Fujikura on this. I’m inclined to trust my source (a prominent member of the technical team at Fujikura) on this matter first and foremost, especially when it directly correlates with my experience and what the numbers say when analyzing the shafts side by side.

Well the fujikura Atmos Black 7x just kicked out the Tensei ck pro white out of the bag... playin a M2 9* .. has it on the skytracks and it mite be the straightes shaft I have seen ,, not only for me but a couple of friends as well ,, we hit about 5 or 6 diffrent set ups and Atmos was so consistent,, low spinning .. longest drive for me was 305yd but was consistently 278 to 285 ,, I probably should be using the 60x or 60s but sometimes a good deal is hard to pass up..

Has anyone had one of these break at the very tip of the shaft? I had an atmos blue break right above the adapter with very little force on it. Not sure if the adapter was installed improperly or what, but was curious if anyone else had any issues.

Has anyone had one of these break at the very tip of the shaft? I had an atmos blue break right above the adapter with very little force on it. Not sure if the adapter was installed improperly or what, but was curious if anyone else had any issues.

Sorry to hear this. Where did you purchase it through? If it was an authorized Fujikura Charter Dealer we can help them take car of this for you. Give them a call and they will contact us.

Unfortunately it was purchased secondhand, so I'm not sure that you guys can do much about it. Thanks for the help, though!

secondhand as in a pull and epoxy a new adapter, or secondhand as in a pre-owned complete shaft? also what kind of adapter?
Pulled an adapter and installed a Titleist one. The shaft was fine with the ping adapter (as far as I know, hit it in a G400 a few times). First round with the Titleist adapter, I was putting a tee in the ground and leaning a little on my driver and the head snapped off. Never seen anything like it.

I snapped a Fujikura Pro XLR8 like that once. It was brand new, Id just received it from my dealer with the tip installed and only hit a few balls. I sent a pic to my dealer and he and Fujikura quickly took care of me. I had a new shaft in hand shortly thereafter.

The G Ping adapters have a rubber ferrule. I noticed the cheap aftermarket Ping G ferrules from China, do not have that rubber ferrules. For a moment there I thought it was a Ping adapter involved. I did hear some Ping adapters snapping off at the top but that was with the OEM G30 ones, not a G. But yeah, that is very surprising. best of luck with this.

I am contemplating another ATMOS Black for my G400 Max head. I can't get that lovely Masters version anymore :(

Unfortunately I dont think Fuji can do anything for mine. Maybe I can try to get in touch with the guy I bought it from, but I dont think it was broken when I got it. Idk

9TX on the way for my M3 fw. Thanks again for giving us a crack at it Fuji.

Nice!! Once you install it and try it let us know your thoughts please.

The 9tx was everything I hoped it would be. I was concerned about the tipping, but those worries are gone. Stability, control, feel, all there. It performs identically to my 8tx I have in driver. Both are just a perfect fit for me.

Two more rounds in some really heavy winds. These shafts are phenomenal.

It been a while now since this thread had me curious enough to pay full pop for the ATMOS.

I am not a Fujikura guy as the last shaft I had was a 757 which was not "blah" and that lasted like a week. I prefer Mitsubishi (KK) or UST, (Elements Chrome). Now, I still toy with the KK Dual Core Tini (own a prototype TS)

Initially, the deal maker was that I could get my hands on the first Limited "Masters" edition that went into my Callaway Epic. That shaft made the Epic EPIC, knocked out the Handcrafted Hzrdus Yellow and ever since then I have been very impressed with the performance of this shaft with my swing & Epic.

Howeve, life changes. Now, I welcome another ATMOS into my stable..the ATMOS Black 6-S. And its going into my G400 Max digitally lofted 9*.

Played this weekend with the Black 6-S and WOW, I thought my KK DC Tini was good. Nope. ATMOS is so straight and it really tamed the high launch and spin from the Max head. No looseness and my misses were even better to a point where I am saying "what miss?"

For the Ping, I was mulling between a 6X and 6S but I thiink I called it well to get the 6S so that I can turn this head over much easier and get my baby draw.

I am still very impressed with the ATMOS in the Ping head. I have had such a great driving year starting with the Epic and now I continue with the Ping.

Technology such as Jailbreak helps a 50 year old get longer.

A 460 low spin head with SUPER FORGIVENESS from Ping also helps as well.

Match these 2 to a shaft that will deliver the head precisely to the ball and also be able to handle the extra load when I warmed up - makes the ATMOS stand out from the other shafts I have owned.

I am Fujikura guy now. My driver is set this year till the next iteration of the Callaway Jailbreak :)

NOTE: I have the 6-S which is the Tour version of the 6S, same specs and profile just a different print (according to Fujikura).
