Darrell Survey just reported Fujikura as the #1 Driver shaft brand at the Masters! Per Fujikura's facebook page. Congrats on the great win with Adam Scott using a Rombax fairway wood shaft!!!

Not really surprised at all.  The .2 and .3 Tour specs are the best low spin shafts on the market IMO.  They also have pretty much everything else in between covered with their Motore Speeder and Feul lines.  I've got a couple .2 TS's, an 8.1 and an 8.2 all perform great and feel great as well.  The funny thing is I bet a lot of the tour presence includes their older models like the pro 95 and speeder 904, a lot of guys are still playing these is FW's/hybrids.

The fuel and fuel tour spec are some of the most under rated shafts out right now. They get no love. Playing a fuel non ts 50x ATM and I'm killing it.

Fujikura seems like it dominates the tour every year.  The Motore Speeder TS shafts are the best on the market IMO and i've tested them all.

I don't know... underrated?  They get a pretty good rep across the board on this site.  I've more or less been playing the same shaft for years.  I played 757 and then 757 in Tour Spec paint when everyone had to have one... since then they've been pretty widely accepted as one of the best- if not the best.

And I agree with the majority, been saying it on WRX for over a year now that the .2 Tour Spec series is the best low spin shaft on the market.

Just an FYI, Aldila won the overall graphite shaft count. "Aldila Shaft Tracker @ The Masters Aldila: 64 Competitor 2nd Place: 48 Competitor 3rd Place: 47" The title of this thread is misleading in that they were only the #1 for driver shafts. Which was stated in the post, but everyone see's the title on the forum. Hmmm.

Interesting, always loved Fujikura shafts but didn't know they would lead the field at the masters. Still love my Titleist 3-wood with the speeder shaft. Also have a Motore in my driver.
