Would you mind sending me a 6x for "testing purposes" over the next childr months here in Arizona? Been playing the Motore Speeder 7.2 Tour spec for years,  but getting older and a slightly lighter shaft in the driver could be beneficial.

Figured it was worth asking.

Thanks!

Sorry, we'd love to, but we have extremely limited quantities now as we're months before our production batches arrive so we have to allocate them for Tour. Stay tuned to GolfWRX though as we'll certainly be doing some promos and you may have a chance to win one.

YES!  I'm all for graphics like this vs the much busier ones.  Love it, excited to hear about it.

Any idea if these are going to be more super premium shafts?  Or more "every joe" shafts (ones I can afford).

Why? It's not like you can't just go get one if you like them that much, probably for cheap too.

I wish there was a shaft the felt like the Ck blue or a graphite design tour ad di but played like a Fuji motore speeder tour spec 7.2 tipped and inch . Are these shafts what I'm looking for ?

Tough one here for the obvious reasons (the variables in every driver, golfer, etc), but if we were to put it in a bucket, it would seem to slot in between the ATMOS TS blue and Black. We promise to have more information and testing results in the coming months and get you all, the GolfWRX community, involved to try Ventus for yourselves!

Thanks for your feedback on the Ventus design. We're very pleased with the results also, it looks really nice outdoors when the sun hits the paint and the silver decal.

As far as pricing, this will be a premium shaft offering in our collection as we have some very high cost material in Ventus. More details to come soon.

I’m actually not sure.  I just put a set of Hankook Ventus tire on my Porsche two weeks ago,  which I never imagined I would do as a bit of a tire snob, but I actually ended up really liking them.

I’m just not sure if I want my high end Fujikura shaft to remind me of my cheap Korean performance tires.

I like it a lot, actually!  Would be cool to see a whole line with latin words for elements (water, earth, fire, etc).  I know UST Mamiya did this (in English) but I like Ventus and think using that category of names could be cool.  Can't wait one!

Any possibility of seeing the Ventus as an upgrade option with any of the OEM's in 2019?

Ventus will be exclusive to our Charter Dealers when we launch in early 2019. Anything beyond that is TBD.

I like it a lot, actually!  Would be cool to see a whole line with latin words for elements (water, earth, fire, etc).  I know UST Mamiya did this (in English) but I like Ventus and think using that category of names could be cool.  Can't wait one!

Ignis.   Fire

Terra.  Land, earth

Aqua.  Water
I would do my best to avoid the Aqua.

Yes.  Might be best to not name a driver shaft  “water”.  ; )

haha!  I feel you on Aqua!  But, the others are pretty cool!

I do think there is something to be said for consistency of naming or "families" of shafts.  I actually chatted with the Fuji guys about this at the PGA Show (GREAT guys, FYI).  I think Atmos was very understandable with the color coding.  And, project X HZRDUS red, yellow, black.  When every shaft has a completely unique name it can be confusing.  Some "theme" is very wise.  I think all companies are moving in that direction so the average guy/gal can understand the differences.

First impression, I am not crazy about the graphics, kinda looks very Plain Jane but I am coming from a "beaut" of a shaft like ATMOS Season Opener though.

However, it sounds like a nice improvement from the TS ATMOS if we are to judge the build material used. Look forward to seeing what else you have improved internally.

Can't wait to see if you guys will do a Season Opener, Patriot Editions  like you have in the past - that will be so cool!

Ignis.   Fire

Terra.  Land, earth

Aqua.  Water

UST already did use the Latin names.  I have an Elements Ignis hybrid shaft and I've seen the Terra.  I don't think ventus was used for those though.
