Ventus TR QC


Recommended Posts

Lots of reports on other fortune on Ventus TRs snapping with routine use. Anyone else seeing this? Fujikura is also not doing any warranty claims despite a lot of these breaking in the same spot.

Yes, I have seen a customer who broke his. But I took care of that and got him a replacement.

I would say yes and no. The number of people on this forum who play aftermarket shafts or play with people that do is a lot less compared to wrx so I’m never really surprised when there’s something like this reported and discussed on wrx and not here. 
 

PX had similar issues with the original hzrdus line especially in the yellow and red. Most people probably aren’t familiar with that either.

I would love for Fujikura to replace the breaks regardless, but there are two scenarios at play here:

1. The person who broke the shaft bought the shaft from someone other than an authorized dealer , such as buying second hand

2. If the person bought from an authorized dealer and is not getting the shaft replaced, the authorized dealer is not being persistent enough with Fuji on this. as a dealer, i got the "we don't normally warranty this type of break, but..."

Just installed one in a driver, I have 2 rounds and 2 range sessions with it, so far so good. Fingers crossed cause I bought it off ebay so I won't get any warranty with it.

I have two Ventus TR shafts in two different drivers and have played both of them for a minimum of 10-12 rounds each, plus at least 7 or 8 range sessions with each shaft. So far, no problems with either shaft.

On the other hand, I have seen several Ventus Red driver shafts break over the last 14 months.  I am a Fujikura Charter Dealer and I have probably installed 25-35 Ventus Red driver and fairway shafts, plus another dozen Ventus Blue driver and fairway shafts (and several Ventus Blue hybrid shafts), a couple of Ventus Blacks in drivers. The only breakage issues I have had so far have been the VeloCore Reds.

No but I tried to be careful who I purchased it from (as best I knew) It's performing well so far too so I just take my chances I guess, but I knew that going into it.

Also haver a couple TR shafts here, a 5S and a 6S but both came from a Fuji dealer I know in GA for me to test along with a couple driver heads.

Honestly only used the 6S one time on range, have been playing with a TR 5S and Ventus Black 5S for about 6 rounds and about 6 or so range sessions to get them dialed into my game.

No issues with any of them, and from what I saw on the other site related to breakage, both the possibility of counterfeits and some type of unusual loading damaging the shaft fibers in the middle should be considered. Although some stated they purchased shaft from a dealer, no one admits to doing anything out of the ordinary which may have damaged them either.

I also saw a video where it was NOT recommended to perform a stretching exercise by holding the shaft at opposite ends while making swing motion moves as that could also potentially cause unusual stresses on the shaft.

Have a Ventus TR Blue 6s on my Ping G425 Max for about a month.  Probably 5 full rounds played so far no issues.  BTW the shaft works great for me.  Picked it up from Fairway Jockey.  Will update if I see anything unusual. 

I live about 20 miles from Pinehurst and golf at least 36 holes a week, (more if my wife lets me).

I’d read on WRX that the TR blue had stress fracture issues which was a consideration I had when it came down to that shaft and LAGolf in May as the top two contenders.

Whether that’s true or not, who knows. It could have been some terrible golfer who would have busted any shaft and the TR was the unlucky duck.

I’ve seen the same on wrx and it’s more than just one person and iirc at least a couple are low single digit caps.

Nope.

Its interesting that fujikura wasn’t processing any claims against the break because it occurred in an area that they don’t warranty against.

Hopefully whatever it was is fixed, especially with being our true black and red tr

Shaft manufactures use that area of the club for shaft testing because it’s the most vulnerable. PX fires balls out of a cannon at that spot over and over and over.

My guess is if there is a problem outside of the breaks we’ve seen in the Blue TR it’s more from amateurs leaning on the shaft when placing a tee or picking one up or some similar type stress. 
 

not saying these higher handicps aren’t causing it with heel shots. I’m just skeptical that this is the only site where the red has been reported as having problems.

I've had a Ventus Blue TR with no issues.  Before that the standard Ventus Blue Velocore with no issues.  Hope I'm not setting myself for an issue now that I've put this out there.  

The original Ventus Black Velocore was actually the club I was fit into a couple years ago.  The Blue has been pretty good for me, but I'm wondering if I could see lower spin with something not too stiff from the black.  I also need something that isn't incredibly low launching so that and the stiffness were the reasons I decided blue.

Definitely could be and that makes a lot of sense!
