Fujikura Ventus hybrid shafts (GolfWRX exclusive first look)

Published

on

After much anticipation and speculation, Fujikura is bringing the VeloCore technology from its highly popular line of Ventus wood shafts to hybrids and utilities with the launch of the all-new Ventus HB.

The new Ventus HB shafts are available in both Blue (mid-launch) and Black (low-launch) profiles as well as a large variety of weights to fit any golfer. They also utilize Fujikura’s proprietary VeloCore Technology to offer extreme stability, to help reduce dispersion and offer greater control.

Fujikura on VeloCore

Our multi-material bias core construction delivers ultimate stability through transition and impact (maximizing clubhead MOI) – increasing velocity and smash factor. The multi-material core is crafted with full-length, ultra-high modulus Pitch 70 Ton Carbon Fiber for ultimate stability, and incredible feel.

What this really means is VeloCore technology, which contributes to the shaft’s extremely low torque tip section helps in reducing the amount of clubhead twisting created from off-center hits. Any shot where the ball is not hit directly on the sweet spot results in some amount of clubhead twisting and what the engineers of Fujikura have discovered—thanks to the help of Enso – 3D motion capture system—is that creating extra tip stability can result is much tighter dispersion.

This type of stability is just as important in hybrids and utility irons as it is in wood shafts because these clubs are using in a variety of situations, whether it be off the tee or out of the rough.

Considering the ever-growing popularity of hybrids along with driving iron utility clubs, the Ventus HB is a welcome line extension.

Specs, Price, and Availability

The Fujikura Ventus hybrid shafts will be available starting September 1 for the Ventus Blue, and September 15th for the Ventus Black. They will retail for $200 each in both profiles.

    I have been a big fan of the Ventus series before the original release of the wood shafts. I will be testing the these over the next three days. My first desire is to put one in a SIM Max #3 (set at 18*)Hybrid. I have an Atmos Black Tour Spec Stiff in my SIM Max #4 (21.5*) and I love it, I can hit high shots with a fairly steep decent that stops very well with fantastic overall distance. Now it will be great to see how the Ventus does with a stronger club. if it does too well I may have to drop my SIM 5 wd which I really like also (or just carry 15 clubs at least when I can!) More to come.

      How much would you tip the Ventus Blue for a 19* hybrid? Thanks

Favorite brand of fairway woods – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking fairway woods. WRXer ‘New_Guy’ is on the hunt for a new 5 and 7-wood and wants to know what brand our members consider to be the best when it comes to FWs. Our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum, with plenty of companies getting a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • layrs14: “I’ve played Cobra fairways for a couple of years (F9, SZ, Radspeed) and really like them. Cobra tends to have a real crack like sound compared to the Titleist and Callaway woods I have hit. This year I tried out a TSi2 7w, based entirely on high praise for the TSi fairways and ability to adjust loft and lie, something the Cobra line lacks. Lofted down to 20.25*, and it’s been great. Epic Max is also solid as long as you don’t mind the bonded hosel.”
  • PEIGolfer: “Most consistent I’ve played through the lines has been Titleist and TEE, thus what gets that spot in the bag.”
  • Lasorcier: “I’ll go with Mizuno. I am very high on my STz 3-wood. I wish they made a 5-wood.”
  • pgatw: “Ping, hard to beat the 425 series, especially if need them set to a flat lie.”

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing forged game improvement irons. WRXer ‘Monks66’ is on the hunt with more forgiveness, saying

“I currently play the Mizzy JPX Pro 825s, love them, but I don’t play as much golf these days, wondering if there is a forged iron out there with more forgiveness….thoughts?”

And our members have been sharing their best picks in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tigercolt77: “You’ll get a lot of answers, and it comes down to what look/feel you prefer. I’d go with Callaway Apex cf19 personally. They check all the boxes.”
  • blopar: “Srixon ZX5 or PXG 0211, I have a set of each. Right now, I’m lovin’ the PXG’s.”
  • R5Two: “I would recommend hitting the ZX7, it has more forgiveness than you would think. Also, forged face insert T200 are great this year. +1 for the PXG sale is fire.”
  • 20six: “Mizuno Comp-EZ, if they could be found.”
