Fujikura officially introduces Speeder Evolution IV shafts

Published

on

All the way back in the beginning of August at the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, we spotted a new, “Japan” release of a Fujikura Speeder Evolution IV shaft — we were left to speculate about its materials, specs and profile, however. Today, Fujikura officially introduced the Speeder Evolution IV shafts, and we now have all of the information.

Fujikura’s line of Speeder shafts began with the Speeder 757, and it has been one of the most popular shaft lines on Tour since the late 1990s. Before this release, there was also a Speeder Evolution I (highest launch, mid-spin), II (low-to-mid launch, low spin) and III (mid-launch, mid-spin). The new Evolution IV is most like the Evo II; it’s designed for low launch and low spin, but “has a slightly softer mid-to-tip section to increase launch angle while maintaining low torque and spin,” according to Fujikura.

The Evo IV shaft also uses new materials and constructions including a new high-performance intermediate modulus 70-ton material for lightweight stability, and an “Engineered Outer Bias Technology” for a smoother loading feel. Like previous Speeder Evolution shafts, the Evo IV uses Metal Composite Technology, 90 Ton Carbon Fiber and Maximum Fiber Content pre-preg.

Fujikura’s Evolution IV will be available from 56-to-77 grams (569, 661 and 757) with flexes ranging from SR up to X. They will be available for $400 (MSRP) starting on October 1, selling exclusively at JDSClubs.com, and available through Fujikura’s national charter dealer on November 1.

    So a site that entrenches itself in the equipment world of golf should not be mentioning the release of a new version of a shaft that was vastly popular? And Heaven forbid a manufacture try to improve on a popular model using new tech and materials.

      What was wrong with the previous old models? Should they all be chucked out and replaced with the new and improved model shafts so you can finally hit the ball solidly? And what happens when they come out with another model claiming superiority over the previous model? Watcha gonna do then??

        I didn’t say that there was anything wrong with the new models, but as far as performance goes using new tech and new materials could improve a shafts play-ability, feel, consistency. if a company is not improving on there current line of products they wouldn’t be in business for very long.

        Also just because a company comes out with a new model doesn’t mean its going to out perform for some players, I get that but for some it can. The what was wrong with the previous model comment is an odd one because everything over they years have had new renditions not just in golf but cars, structures. everything evolves (pun intended) over the years why would that stop with shafts? Unless you are still hitting your driver with a TT DG S300 driver shaft that is.

      Only you know the answer to that question. And if you aren’t talking about the information about upcoming products, why not use things like NoScript and uBlock Origin?

      How can you say that when the GolfWRX staff mimics Fujikura with this information?:
      “The Evo IV shaft also uses new materials and constructions including a new high-performance intermediate modulus 70-ton material for lightweight stability, and an “Engineered Outer Bias Technology” for a smoother loading feel. Like previous Speeder Evolution shafts, the Evo IV uses Metal Composite Technology, 90 Ton Carbon Fiber and Maximum Fiber Content pre-preg.”
      It’s just gotta feel and play better than anything before!!!!!!

The shoes feature all the benefits that SQAIRZ shoes offer and come in a pink, black and white color scheme.

Coolest thing for sale in the GolfWRX Classifieds (10/13/21): Adams MB2 Raw irons

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf, plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing we all love – buy and selling equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a set of Adams MB2 Raw irons

From the seller (@skaarsgard): “Adams MB2 RAW  irons 4-P + G w/ Steelfiber i95 Stiff (Plus bonus 56* and shaft), G wedge w/ C Taper, clubs +1/2″length, and lies / lofts measure standard.  $475. 

The GW has a C Taper shaft and I am throwing in a 56* Edilon Sand Wedge which has the Steelfiber shaft should you want to use it. This shaft has some cosmetic damage near the hosel but certainly does not impact performance. The 9 iron struck a rock in a tournament – tried to capture close ups in pictures.  I don’t think it impacts performance as I never noticed it.  Aside from that grooves are still sharp and in way above average shape. 

Ping Midsize feeling grips. Used one round last month but aside from that, unused since 2014-2015 timeframe. These are amazingly forgiving and wonderful clubs – all-time irons.”

To check out the full listing in our BST forum, head through the link: Adams MB2 Raw irons

This is the most impressive current listing from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules
