Leading shaft brand Fujikura has unveiled the latest additions to its popular VENTUS TR range of shafts, with the launch of the new VENTUS TR Red and VENTUS TR Black.
The extended VENTUS TR line up now features three launch profiles – mid-high, mid, and low – that are designed specifically to stiffen torque in the section of the shaft where golfers need it most, leading to increased stability and consistency.
While VeloCore Technology remains at the heart of all VENTUS TR products to provide an incredibly stable overall platform, an added layer of ultra-strong and ultra-lightweight ‘spread tow’ carbon fabric reinforces the mid/handle section to increase torsional stiffness. Each VENTUS TR profile provides similar feel to its original VENTUS counterpart, but with enhanced stiffness and reduced launch and spin.
Analytics carried out at Fujikura have shown one of the highest stress points of the shaft is the mid/handle section during the transition and downswing. Fujikura’s engineers targeted this specific section in VENTUS TR shafts to reduce twist and ovalisation, providing golfers maximum stability and consistency for straighter shots and improved mishits.
Talking about the new models, Spencer Reynolds, Fujikura Product and Brand Manager, said: “Any time we incorporate a new technology into a shaft offering, it’s always in the conversation to expand and integrate that technology into additional profiles. The immediate adoption, success, and performance gains we saw from VENTUS TR Blue led us to enhance the line with additional profiles.
“Expanding VENTUS TR offerings provides fitters more options in the VENTUS line to fit, and ultimately help a wider range of players improve the performance of their drivers and fairway woods. With six VENTUS profiles available with varying performance characteristics, the VENTUS line is truly firing on all cylinders.”
Launched in 2019, VENTUS has quickly become Fujikura’s best-selling shaft line. It was the most played driver and wood shaft during the 2020/21 PGA Tour Season and continues to be the most played in the 2021/22 season. In its first year on global Tours, VENTUS TR Blue has already been used by players in drivers and fairways to rack up an impressive number of wins, including The Players Championship, The Open Championship, The Senior Open Championship and multiple wins on the DP World Tour. The current No.2 ranked player in the world uses TR Blue in both his driver and 3-wood.
VENTUS TR Red and Black shafts are available in a wide variety of weights and flexes across all profiles; TR Red (R2-X flex, 59g– 89g), TR Black (S-X flex, 59g – 89). They will be available at retail later this month through authorised Fujikura dealers and select OEM custom programmes.
