Where are Fujikura shafts made? Our shafts are prototyped in both Japan and the US by two teams of engineers.
Fujikura have produced many light shafts in Japan, so that we have advanced technical capabilities and a highly quality control. We had developed more lighter shafts for senior and ladies golfers after releasing MTR-VC3. 0.
The highest launching of the Ventus models also offers the lightest shaft weights. Starting at 58 grams in an R2 (A+) flex, the shafts are also available up through 72 gram X flex. This makes the Ventus Red not only a good shaft for a driver, but a higher launching fairway wood.
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.
Each shaft is developed around Fujikura's VeloCore Technology with an accelerated taper design to amplify load and feel. With a more active tip section, the Red profile is designed to achieve a slightly higher launch and spin rate than Blue.
Notably, Beau Hossler used Ventus Red while regaining his PGA Tour card for the 2019-2020 season. The salient point here is getting fit by a professional is a must, regardless of whether you're spending $100 or $400+ on a new shaft.
Where are Fujikura shafts made? Our shafts are prototyped in both Japan and the US by two teams of engineers. We wholly own two factories that are employed by Fujikura employees that produce Fujikura high-performance golf shafts.
Ventus is a Tour-inspired profile and the first to include Fujikura's all-new VeloCore Technology in an accelerated taper, ultra-stiff tip profile. Maximum energy transfer from the tip section boosts the clubhead's performance and a straight taper design enhances loading and feel.
What does this mean for the golfer? For those who swing in the 105 to 120 mph range, the Ventus 6S is a low spin, tight dispersion shaft — your shots will stay in the fairway.
Ventus with VeloCore Technology promotes consistent center-face impact and provides ultimate stability, tightening dispersion and increasing control. The result is a shaft that maximizes the MOI and ball speed of your clubhead through the reduction of twist during the swing and at impact, especially on off-center hits.
The Fujikura Ventus TR is a perfect blend of the two. I get the stability of Ventus Black with the added kick and smoother feel of Ventus Blue. In my first round with Ventus TR, the things that stood out were the consistent spin, the high ball speed, and the stable feel.
All Fujikura Ventus shafts, regardless of color-code rating or stiffness, feature extraordinarily advanced construction from high-tech carbon fiber materials. Notably, they contain a multi-material bias layer core with full-length pitch 70-ton carbon fiber, that is stronger and lighter than predecessors.
The Fujikura Ventus TR is the new mid-launch, low-spin addition to the Ventus family. Fujikura utilized their proprietary enso analytics to identify that many players had the need to increase “torsional stiffness” in the mid and handle sections of the golf shaft.
Reusing graphite iron and wedge shafts. Along the lines of what fupresti said, as long as they're pulled properly you should be able to reuse a graphite shaft indefinitely.
335" tip, 46" (55g) - S Flex.
The Ventus Blue is a mid-launch, and the Black is going to be the low launch. Typically speaking, as your driver clubhead speed decreases, you will need more launch coming from the shaft.
The Fujikura Ventus is extremely accurate. Consistently high ball speed. Among the lowest spinning shafts I've ever hit.
With a stiffer butt and tip section than Blue, the shaft is geared for high swing speed golfers who require a penetrating launch. With a more active tip section, Ventus Red was created to achieve slightly more launch and spin than Blue.
The guidebook Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Ultimania clarified the connection, stating that Roxas and Ventus look alike because Ventus's heart entered Sora's body, and that Ventus's presence influenced Roxas's appearance when he was created.
Googled Description: The R2 is the equivalent of the modern day A-flex. Instead of calling it amateur or senior flex which is ability or age related, the R2 is simply a softer shaft than a standard regular flex for those with reduced swing speeds.
Tip Flex: Tip Flex, or Retro Flex, represents the average stiffness toward the head side of the shaft. Sometimes this is measured in a very similar fashion as the static-flex measurement. The difference being that the tip end is clamped and the load is applied to the butt end of the shaft.
Shaft tipping is when a club builder removes length from the tip section of a shaft, which is the end where the clubhead is installed. In most cases, tip trimming a shaft makes it meaningfully stiffer. It also increases torsional stiffness, known as “torque,” which is a shaft's resistance to twisting.
