Puma releases TitanTour Ignite Disc golf shoes

Published

on

Puma’s new TitanTour Ignite Disc golf shoes are so futuristic-looking they may require batteries. Far from a traditional look, the shoes combine Puma’s newest technologies with a laceless-system that requires only twisting, not tying.

The Disc closure system, which is new from Puma, is said to ensure a snug fit that adapts to your foot, according to the company. It provides a “custom fit” that’s designed for more comfort compared to shoes with laces, and more stability throughout the swing.

Also, the TitanTour Ignite Disc shoes utilize Ignite Foam for cushioning and energy return for the foot, and has a microfiber upper for durability.

Other features of the shoe include thermoplastic urethane (TPU) heel support, GripZone traction, waterproofing (guaranteed for two years) and the company’s “PWRFRAME” technology for stability.

The shoes are available in Red-Black and White-Black colorways, and are now on sale for $220.

    When I first read the headline, I thought Puma had developed a shoe for Disc (Frisbee) golfers

Ventus Notes: The rise of Fujikura Ventus on tour

Published

on

Fujikura’s Ventus shafts swept the top three spots in our GolfWRX Members Choice voting this year, and the popularity of the Red, Blue, and Black shafts extends beyond our membership all the way to golf’s professional ranks.

As a refresher: Ventus relies on Fujikura’s proprietary VeloCore Technology to tighten shot dispersion and enhance performance on off-center shots.

“As swing speeds increase on Tour over the last few years, the Tour player is seeking tighter dispersion to hit more fairways,” said John Hovis, Tour Operations & Technical Services Manager at Fujikura. “We challenged our engineers to develop a stable, low spinning, stiff tip shaft to improve control and ball speeds and the result was Ventus.”

The multi-material VeloCore derives its stability from ultra-high modulus pitch 70-ton carbon fiber (about 150 percent stronger and more stable than T1100g) and 40-ton bias layers that run the full length of the shaft.

Ventus also features an ultra-stiff tip section and an accelerated taper butt section that maximizes energy transfer through the swing. It’s available in weights and flexes ranging from 57 grams to 86 grams and R2 up to X flex.

Fujikura Ventus models

Red: Mid launch, mid-high spin
Blue: Low launch, mid spin
Black: Low launch, low spin

Fujikura Tour success

A few morsels to speak to the primacy of Ventus…

In the “driver, fairway, and hybrid shafts combined” category Ventus is the most played wood shaft model on the PGA Tour for the 2020-2021 season.

14.5 percent of all wood shafts used this season on PGA Tour are Ventus. 25.84 percent are Fujikura, more generally.

At the 2021 Travelers Championship, there were more Ventus shafts in play (82) than and next closest competitor (63).

Fujikura is the No. 1 wood shaft on LPGA Tour in 2021 with a 25 percent share.

Fujikura is the No. 1 wood shaft on Japan’s JGTO Tour in 2021 at 36.2 percent.

Fujikura is No. 1 wood shaft on the Champions Tour in 2021 at 30.82 percent.

12 players have won PGA Tour events with a Fujikura wood shaft this year, including the 2020 Masters and 2021 PGA Championship winners.

Notable players who have gamed a Fujikura Ventus shaft at some point this season: Hideki Matsuyama, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Louis Oosthuizen, Jordan Spieth, Sergio Garcia, Garrick Higgo, Adam Scott, Lexi Thompson, and Nelly Korda.

A few setups, below.

Jordan Spieth

Driver: Titleist TSi3 (10 degrees)
Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 X

Phil Mickelson (PGA Championship)

Driver: Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond (6 degrees @5.5)
Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 6 X (47.9 inches)

Rory McIlroy 

Driver: TaylorMade SIM2 (9 degrees)
Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 7 X

A final word

Ventus is Fujikura’s No. 1 volume top-grossing shaft in the aftermarket in 2021. This is unheard of for the company as it’s a $350 shaft. Historically, Vista Pro or Pro shafts have traditionally been Fujikura’s highest volume movers as they are $125 and $200 respectively.
