Best driver shaft of 2021: The top 5

1. Fujikura Ventus Blue

What Fujikura says: “A multi-material bias core construction that 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 — 150% stronger and more stable than T1100g — for ultimate stability, and 40 Ton bias layers ensure incredible feel.”

2. Fujikura Ventus Black

From our launch piece: “The Ventus Black is an extremely stout profile designed for more aggressive players with a stiffer profile in the butt section and especially in the tip section compared to the original Ventus Blue profile.”

3. Fujikura Ventus Red

From our launch piece: “The Ventus Red is designed to achieve slightly higher launch and spin than the current profile of Ventus Blue—which can be both helpful in the driver and fairway woods.”

4. Graphite Design Tour AD DI

From our launch piece: “The Tour AD DI “DEEP IMPACT” is designed to provide golfers with more power and stability in a golf shaft. It is the brand’s first shaft design that was integrated with Toray Company’s original NANOALLOY material technology in the tip section of the shaft. This material technology is known as “DI Technology” and aims to offer players additional shaft stability without the loss of feel.”

5 (tie). Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX, Mitsubishi Tensei Pro White 1K

What Project X says: “The HZRDUS brand is a distinguished mark of the aggressive swinger, and that legacy is continued with the new HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX. Built with 100% aerospace materials, Smoke Black RDX is the first shaft to utilize Hexcel’s new HexTow® HM54 high modulus carbon fiber and combines it with high tensile strength HexTow® IM2C carbon fiber to provide the ideal blend of stiffness and stability desired by the HZRDUS player.”

What Mitsubishi says: “Created using extraordinary 1K Fiber that is 3x thinner than Carbon Kevlar for a tighter, more consistent weave. This super premium fiber produces an amazing “1K feel” by transmitting more of the high frequency vibrations needed to feel the true quality of impact. Constructed utilizing the new dual-phase XLINK Tech Resin System for a carbon-rich structure that is both stronger and more responsive. Boron fiber in the tip caps off this exceptional design. Available from 50R to 80TX, giving a wide range of players the opportunity to play a super premium 1K shaft.”

Your favorite draw-biased driver and why? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing draw-biased drivers. WRXer ‘Pete52’ recently tried out TaylorMade’s SIM2 Max driver and was impressed with the dispersion, and asks fellow members for their picks for top draw-biased drivers in our forums.

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.

  • Nelson.br.1515: “I have the Callaway Big Bertha B21 driver and love it. Sounds great, solid distance and mishits are comparable in distance to centered strikes. Most consistent driver I have ever had, better than Callaway Fusion & Ping G400 Max.”
  • Davidv: “If you want a draw driver with good distance, then the Ping 425 SFT is the one. I had it, and it definitely has a draw bias almost impossible to hit a slice or cut shot.”
  • PZero: “M6 D Type. I’m hitting bombs with it.”
  • Wardonation: “RadSpeed XD. No brainer.”

Entire Thread: “Your favorite draw-biased driver and why?”
