With the release of the USGA/R&A Distance Report this week, it seems the perfect time to offer a review of a shaft that is designed for....guess what...more club head speed.

The Fujikura Motore X shafts hit stores this week, and even debuted in the bag of at least one PGA Tour Pro at the Waste Management. You can read all the details of the new shaft on the home page in this first look piece by My Golf Spy's Chris Nickel, to see how Fujikura says they are able to "Multiply" a drivers swing speed.    Read it Here

Will it work for you? Well that's what we're going to ask five forum members--that reside in the United States--- to test for themselves and report back to the forum on the results The five testers will go through a phone fitting with a Fujikura fitter to determine the best model for them. They will then receive the shaft put it through paces on the range--Ideally with a launch monitor access--and on the course over several weeks, track and monitor the results versus their current gamer, then write and publish their full length review here on the forum.  Testers will be required to keep up an ongoing dialogue in the review thread while testing the shaft.

Once the testers are selected and most likely during the phone fitting, you will be asked what driver head you are using, and the shaft will be sent with the adapter for that head, you will be all set to put it on and go test!!

First Name/State: Kevin / Arizona

Current Driver Shaft: Tensei Orange 60s 

Current Driver Swing Speed: 103mph

What if anything would you like to improve in regards to your driver shaft..such as more or less spin, better dispersion, more distance..etc.: Dispersion is very important to me and I am quite accurate right now. A little less spin would get me more distance though. Spin is 2800-3000 right now. If I could knock that down to 2500-2800 and keep control, I'd be incredibly happy. If the shaft had a little more speed and centered the strike as well as the Tensei Orange I'd be over the moon.

Do you have regular access to a Launch Monitor--Not required, but would be helpful in testing. Yes. Literally next door to my work. I hit on it all the time.

Need more distance as years gone by.

Except for a couple of local brick and mortar golf retail stores, no L/M at home.  Not sure if they like me to take the driver and several shafts there to get numbers, only.

A well balanced shaft that fells smooth and doesn't twist.  Like everyone I want more distance. I currently average 240,  occasionally crackin one in the 250's.

I do have access to a launch monitor. My local golf shop is in the Villages and I have a good relationship with them.

Dispersion!  This is my main focus when looking for a driver.  The more, the better

Yes!  My past few reviews, I've included all the launch monitor data that I can.  There are more simulators that are continuing to come up around me to get multiple readings.
