Fujikura Motore Speeder
The best of both worlds
For years the 757 Speeder has been the best selling, most popular shaft on the PGA tour and one of the longest running shafts on the market. In 2009 Fujikura introduced the Motore F1 shaft to rave reviews (myself included) and instantly found a winner. The Motore F1ís four axis Rombax weave offered a straight, strong shaft. The Speeder offered a tour preferred ball flight. Combine the two and you have the Motore Speeder.
The Motore Speeder is a 7-axis technology. It has a quadra axis composite combined with a triax composite. That is a lot of techno mumbo-jumbo to me, but the results are hard to deny. I found it to feel similar to a Motore F1 with the flight of a Speeder. I I-mixed my Motore Speeder 7.0 stiff to give it a fair test against the regular Motore F1 and the other shafts in my quiver.
This shaft is a stunning red from tip to almost grip where is had a funky overlay graphic. This is considerably muted for Fujikura. The model I have is the Japanese color scheme, but from my talks with Fujikura, that is the only difference. The US version will be darker red, where as mine was a touch pinkish. I also like the graphic down the spine with the name, model and flex.
The one thing I did notice on install was that it did come out just a touch softer than the Motore F1. I tipped it an extra ĹĒ to make up the difference. That seemed to do the trick. At the course, this shaft surpassed my expectations. I didnít really think Fujikura could improve on the Rombax Z series and then came the Motore F1 which I also didnít think there could be much room for improvement, and now the Motore Speeder.
The first thing that I noticed was a little bit higher ball flight with the Motore Speeder. The ball got up much quicker, but then carried very flat until it descended to the ground with very little spin. I am carrying my driver to about my normal places on the course, but it is so wet, I have seen some roll, but not much. I canít wait to hit this on some hard dry ground to see the full potential on the roll.
It is also a very straight shaft. I am working on retraining myself to aim down the middle. I have always played a slight fade off the tee, but I find myself yelling at the ball to cut a little, but it doesnít. It has been a very point and shoot sort of shaft. Mr. Divots had one installed in his Adams 9032ls and he says that he doesnít have to think about his swing or worry about where to aim with this shaft. Just point and shoot.
The best part about this shaft has to be the improved feel; it is so smooth, at impact. It almost feels like it dampens vibrations at impact. This incredible soft explosion when you strike the ball is not like any other shaft Iíve hit in my driver.
This will be a winner for Fujikura in 2010. Ian Poulter already won with his the first week he put it in play, not too shabby. If you like the Motore F1 or the Speeder 757, you need to try the Motore Speeder. If neither one of those shafts worked for you, you might want to give this one a try, it is the best of both worlds and gets rid of what you donít like in those shafts.

My fitter suggested I try the Motore Speeder.
First of all, it looks gorgeous.
I put in the 6.0 and it fits my swing speed much better.
Without much practice time with it, I took it to the course and it performed on demand.
Tends to push whereas my previous Rombax W tended to draw, so I adjusted to aim straight instead of drawing it.
The reliability instills a confidence for me to pull it out for every par-5.
Back at the driving range, another pleasant surprise. My best shot is now at least 20-30 yards longer than before now that I have a flex in keeping w the faster swing speed.
It is also precise to aim, making pure hits easier to pull of.
Did I mention it looks gorgeous?

I haven't seen that I have a few of them in my office and my clubmaker profiled them against the F1 stiff. The Motore Speeder 7.0 stiff was stiffer all the way up and down the shaft than the F1. The 6.0 was a little weaker, except in the tip which was almost identical.

Definitely go with an X. I have a similar swing speed, and I play the X with very good results.
