Fujikura Ventus shafts have taken the golf world by storm.
The VELOCORE technology featured in the Ventus models elevate the game with increased torsional stiffness (less twisting), increased strength without compromising tip speeds, and tighter tolerances. What this means is that the general range of performance for the Ventus is expansive and more players are finding straighter drivers and longer distances.
From Fujikura's site,"VeloCore technology is a multi-material bias core construction technique that delivers ultimate stability through transition and impact (maximizing clubhead MOI) – increasing velocity and smash factor. The multi-material core is crafted with full-length, ultra-high modulus Pitch 70 Ton Carbon Fiber — 150% stronger and more stable than T1100g — for ultimate stability, and 40 Ton bias layers ensure incredible feel." (link) The Velocore technology addresses the 3 fundamental elements that affect how your drivers and fairway woods perform.
Golf shafts are put under enormous strain during the swing. Without enough strength, degradation of power transfer and or even breakage can easily occur.
Power transfer has to do with minimizing energy loss. You put a lot of energy into the swing, and you want virtually all of it to transfer to the ball. During the downswing, how much energy from your swing does the shaft "store"? The more it stores, the more it can release at impact. Both shaft and head work together to transfer power. Ideally the swing experiences near-lossless power transfer.
Stability is an extremely critical piece of the shafts profile because of the thin and long shape. Even a small amount of instability could equate to a large dispersion when it comes to swing dynamics of the shaft. Ideally players need as much as stability possible.
The reason why the Ventus shafts have become so popular with Tour players and amateurs, is because it address these 3 elements, and players are quick to notice the results.
