Fujikura Ventus

Recommended Posts

I played 18 yesterday with my Club Champion fitted shaft, Accra TZ5, and saw similar results. It was one of the best driving days I've ever had. It's definitely worth the investment to get fitted.

I wonder if the shaft makeup or the bend profile is what makes this shaft excel? I wonder if they can put the Velocore in other bend profiles such as the Evo line?

No idea, but 9 months later. I only like this shaft more and more. I've switched to hitting slight fades with it after years of a power draw. Previously, when I'd try a fade, I would get one, but 5 yards or 75 yards were options. This has allowed me to play a 5-10 yard fade as my go to shot on drives over the last few months. It's just so good.

It’s the shaft make up with the materials used and how it’s layered on and at what angle.

To my understanding Velocore is just a product name for marketing what they are doing with the design. They used two different types of carbon fiber, one being “stiffer”’ than t110g.

they could put it in any shaft but we have to remember they are in the business of making products and like every shaft company have different lines designed to do different things so  doing the samething in another line defeats the purpose of having a velocore line.

I don't know, the way Fujikura puts out shafts I'm fully expecting to see the "Fujikura Ventus Motore Speeder Vista Atmos Pro 2.0 661 TR Evolution 12 Tour Spec XLR8 with Triax" any day now.

If that comes in a black theme I'll get one.

+1 for the Ventus. It has substantially reduced my left-right dispersion with the driver. It is so stable, but I can still feel the club loading, nothing like the HZRDUS black that I struggled with for a while. I need to save up to get it in my 3w as well...

Can you tell me more about the technical differences between the Ventus and HZRDUS for you?

Technical differences? Not sure I'm your man there haha. I don't know much other than what is on the spec sheets when it comes to the technical aspects... but I can try to better describe how it translated to my swing if that helps.

https://fujikuragolf.com/ventus

https://www.truetemper.com/products/hzrdus-black/

The HZRDUS feels like re-bar all the way down. My swing speed is in the 108-110 range with an aggressive transition. The 75g 6.5 shaft was too much for me to consistently handle (the 6.0, or the lighter 6.5 would be the better choice from that lineup for my swing). Some days I could cook with it, other days I was all over the place. I had cut down on my left misses for the most part compared to earlier drivers (had mostly been buying stiff shafts off the rack pre-MGS enlightenment and fought both pull hooks and over-cooked draws), but dispersion was an issue.

Ventus (blue 6x is what I have) is softer up by the grip, way softer than the HZRDUS, for me, that translated into more "feel" of the club loading in the backswing (think AD-DI but not quite that soft). But it has a super stiff tip, which made it feel stable and resisted rotating (for me at least). It is just easier for me to square up, and misses seem to gently ease left or right, rather than really spin way off line. My ball speed from my f8+ with the HZRDUS to my Epic Flash SZ with the Ventus has gone from ~155-158mph to ~158-161, and much tighter dispersion. Hope that helps, but LMK if you had other specific questions.

I’m close to you in tempo and SS. When I was getting fit for my driver, HZRDUS yellow was best for me. Averaged about 110-114ss, ball speeds were upper 160’s and spin was low 2’s.

The fitter wanted me in a 6.5 but like you, I couldn’t turn the ball over. 6.0 in a 75g and I was pleased.

I’m not upset with my setup but I’m super curious about all this Ventus talk. The subjective helps but having some tech specs would help me decide if it’s worth digging in and going for it.

You’re showing some legit differences that justify it. If CC has a driver fitting sale in the future I’m going.

Thanks

For me, HZRDUS felt like a 2x4. I had no feel for it. VENTUS feels just like the fujikura Pro, but with much tighter dispersion. 

 

That was a very technical answer 🤔

Hzrdus yellow and ventus have completely different profiles and depending what ventus you are looking at would be a different launch profile. Ventus offers low, mid and mid high launch where the yellow is a low launch.

hzrdus yellow is a counterbalanced shaft where ventus has an accelerated taper and is very tip stiff. 

do you have the original hzrdus yellow or the smoke yellow? These have slightly different profiles with the smoke having a stiffer midsection than the og hzrdus yellow

each of the websites has the specs

From what I’m reading, very different is a fair assessment. I was fit 2 years ago for my LST with the original, non-handcrafted.

All I’ve ever played were “boardy” shafts. Most notably the UST ProForce75 in the 975 and 905 series heads. Mitsubishi Rayon TP 70 LT in my R7 Quad...that shaft was the best and most favorite I’ve ever played.

As I get older, moving towards something with a little more “feel” as it loads up while maintaining lower spin is something that appeals to me.

The websites are only so helpful, I appreciate those who spoke up and offered info.

What specs are you looking for that can’t be found on the websites?
