Without giving away ingredients 😀 are you doing this thru flag placements, flag alignment and/or type of material to possibly including multiple flags of same material?

RickyBobby_PR - 

From a broad view, we are able to do this through material types, orientation, and size/wraps of materials.

Thanks!

Hey MGS Community - How's everyone doing? We at Fujikura are using this time to do our part to turn our attention to education and having a conversation with golfers. We want to get back on the c

What are your thoughts on shaft PUREing? Is it really a beneficial service to perform on shafts, or are manufacturing tolerances tight enough now that it won’t make a large difference for most golfers

We like that you guys are coming out of the gates with the tough questions like these! there are many ways to answer this and many opinions. A simple answer is we all have different machines to measur

All things being equal what amount of spin difference would there be between ventus blue 6x and blue 6s?

Hey guys! Thanks for taking the time to do this! I currently play the stock shaft you guys made for Mizuno in their 2018 CLK hybrid. Which current shaft is the most comparable to that one if I want similar performance in my driver and 3 wood?

Hey Josh Ross - Thanks for your question!

Take the following as a starting point. From my understanding that shaft was a low/mid launch profile. 

I would suggest you take a look at the following models. 

Ventus - our fastest growing line ever, designed to enhance velocity and on-center face contact through VeloCore technology. Ventus Blue is our mid launch low spin model, Ventus Black is our launch and spin killer (low launch low spin).

Motore X F1 - new for 2020, F1 offers a low-mid launch/spin and was designed to increase ball speeds while still providing stability and control in a tour-feel profile.

Hope this helps!

Hi Eric, thank you for your response. I’m not quite following the response of “different machines”. Is cycles per minute (“CPM”) an objective or subjective measurement/ number? If objective, then why can this number not be measured consistently, i.e., speed/radar gun or a scale? If this is the case, how do companies have machines that do not measure correctly and stay in business? If you’re saying that CPM is a subjective number, can you please explain why. 
Thanks!

They are physically different machines. Iirc from my visit to a couple different brands there are differences in how they measure as well. 

Sorry for any confusion. Yes, different machines altogether thus the CPM could be different from one machine to another.

So I just made a switch to a ping G410 plus driver to try based on the MGS 2020 driver test. I have a Fujikura Pro 2.0 TS 6X in it at the moment and it is a pretty darn stout shaft. What would be the benifit of going to a Ventus black?

Havin some trouble understanding the difference between the Ventus and Motore X. Can you explain? 

I’d like to bump this question as I am wondering the same. Thank you!

I've been able to play a few times and my club has taken a lot of precautions to keep people safe.  I'm still working so just trying to take care of my patients and keep them safe.  Been watching a lot of old Masters tournaments and No Laying Up on YouTube.

I work in prosthetic and therefore use a lot of carbon fiber products so what I've always wondered is how the shafts are manufactured, are they prepreg or a wet lamination? What layups are used and materials in the shafts themselves.  I'm excited for this Shaft U, hopefully some of those questions will be answered!

Ventus black should promote better center face contact and help your dispersion. Compared to PRO 2.0 TS they have similar EI profiles so they should feel similar but PRO 2.0 is more counterbalanced than Ventus. Ventus Black is definitely stout, but does not feel like rebar due to higher quality materials and VeloCore.

I’ve been to visit 2 different shaft companies and they use prepreg and would imagine that’s the same for all shaft companies

stiffer flex should generally yield slightly lower spin, but this is a tough one to answer and is splitting hairs, we're talking probably less than 100 rpm difference.

The main difference is Ventus has VeloCore with superior materials in the full length bias core (pitch 70 ton) and should yield better dispersion than Motore X for most golfers. Motore X has a torsionally stiffened handle section that should yield more clubhead acceleration and speed for most golfers.

Also Ventus is $350 MSRP and Motore X is $275.
