Behind the Performance-Enhancing Technology of Fujikura Ventus Shafts

Must read

Fujikura Ventus shafts are imbued with industry-leading technology enabling them to tighten shot dispersion, maximize ball speed, and extend range, even on less-than-perfect, off-center shots.

There are three lines of Fujikura Ventus shafts, but all are defined, and underpinned by, the same core technological tenets that boost their performance in a big way – and which can benefit golfers of nearly any need or capability.

Here’s what they offer.

New VeloCore Technology
At the core – if you can excuse the pun – of every Fujikura Ventus shaft is updated VeloCore Technology.

VeloCore Technology is a proprietary multi-material bias core that creates best-in-class stability, even through transition and impact, and even on less-than-ideal shots. This maximizes MOI, delivering next-level velocity and smash factor while improving forgiveness.

This technology also helps to reduce twist during the swing and improves stability at impact, helping to significantly tighten shot dispersion and extend range. By helping to limit open- and closed-clubface shots, Ventus shafts help golfers find the center and sweet spot of the club face more easily, and more often.

Regardless of swing speed, VeloCore Technology’s ability to minimize twist during the swing and at impact helps keep a lid on shot dispersion while increasing range – making this technology a boon for golfers of all backgrounds, ages, and strengths.

High-Strength, Ultra-High Modulus Carbon Fiber
To understand part of the value of VeloCore Technology, you need to go one layer deeper. VeloCore Technology is constructed from full-length, high-strength, ultra-high modulus carbon fiber.

To be exact, Fujikura Ventus shafts make use of Pitch 70 Ton Carbon Fiber, which is 150% stronger than T1100g. It’s also more stable, too.

These shafts also utilize 40 Ton Bias layers that also improve strength, stability, and feel. Fujikura also features what they call “MCFC” or Maximum Carbon Fiber Content, in these (and other) shafts.

This so-called Maximum Carbon Fiber Content provides a greater density of carbon fibers within the shaft, providing enhanced stiffness, strength, stability, and feedback to conventional shafts, and at a similar weight.

Only high-precision material suppliers can produce MCFC raw materials, but the improvements in energy-loading characteristics, sensitivity, and feedback, strength, and durability are well worth the effort and premium price.

In addition, MCFC shafts are stronger and more durable than comparable alternatives, adding to their appeal.

Bend Profiles
Taken together, these two core technological tenets of Fujikura Ventus shafts result in ultra-responsive, sensitive, forgiving shafts that are optimized for smash factor and energy transfer.

They feature enhanced loading and feel coupled with next-level forgiveness.

Now, you might be thinking that features like these reserve these shafts to the realm of only the strongest, fastest-swinging professional golfers in the game – but that is not the case.

There are three categories of Fujikura Ventus shafts, based on shot launch and spin profile characteristics.

The Fujikura Ventus Red line, with a stiff tip, firm midsection, and ultra stiff handle section, produces mid-high launch shot characteristics, and medium spin, making it ideal for players with slower swing speeds and tempos.

The Fujikura Ventus Blue line, with an ultra-stiff tip profile, a stiff midsection, and a firm handle section, produces mid-launch and mid to low-spin characteristics, making them perfect for players with middle of the road swing speeds and tempos.

And finally – but not least – the Fujikura Ventus Black line, with a stiff midsection and ultra-stiff tip and handle sections, produces low launch and spin across the board. These ultra-stiff shafts are optimized for experienced players with the most aggressive swing speeds and tempos.

Meaning, there is a Fujikura Ventus shaft for you – regardless of your ability.

Still, if you’re not sure which one is right for you, consult a team of professionals like those at Dallas Golf Company. They carry these and other leading golf shafts and clubs and their experts would be more than happy to make personalized recommendations about which shafts would be best for you.
