    The Evo V Speeder shafts are outstanding! Higher launch, low spin with the best feel Fujikura has produced.

    Heard from a club builder I know that the Evo V is playing a little softer than the original Evo I. Can anyone confirm?

    Figuring out which fujikura shaft is designed for which player or purpose always been confusing to me, that being said im sure they are high quality shafts.

    I couldn’t agree more. I don’t know how anyone that works at that company can look at their product line up and not understand they offer FAR too many products and MOST people are confused by it. It doesn’t help that the website is muddled and the descriptions are lacking.



    I’m a total gear head and former professional fitter and I can’t keep up with their 8 million options.



    I like the Atmos Black my buddy has in his driver and I play older 665’s in my fairways and an 8.8 HB in my hybrid, but I’ve stopped trying to figure out all their offerings.

    Spec wise the evo V is stiffer, but perhaps with the updated materials it feels smoother. I have both so I'll be testing them out side by side

    Fuji - can you tell me which of the new speeders has a profile closest to the Motore 757 speeder you re-released in 2013? Thanks
  • YoYoJumboYoYoJumbo RaleighMembers Posts: 969 ✭✭
    I've hit both of these. I currently game the Evo V, and a buddy of mine just put a Ventus in his F9.



    Evo 757 V is extremely smooth. I am around 110ss but can top out at 114. The 757 handles it easily without losing it either way. When struck well it gives me beautiful little baby fades. The only thing that rivals the feel and performance was that Ventus.



    If a new shaft is on your radar you owe it to yourself to try both of these. NO JOKE. Good job Fuji.

    I’m toying with the idea of giving the ventus 8x a shot in my M5 3w.

    Was talking to my fitter about the Ventus tonight. In reference to Tensei Pro White, Ventus will launch higher and spin a couple hundred rpm more. Equally stable in the tip as TPW.

    Are you able to compare the Evo V and Ventus vs the Evo IV? Also really liking the sound of the TR661. I've used the Evo 4 alot of the last 18 months. Great performing shafts!

    Evo IV will be slightly lower launch, stiffer in the handle, slightly softer in the tip than Ventus.

    Evo V is more similar to the original Evo, but spins less. Also launching higher than IV.

    TR is VERY low spin with good feel in handle and tip, very stiff mid.

    Hope that helps!

    @Fujikura Golf I currently play the Pro TS 73x tipped 1" in driver and 3 wood. I love the driver but want a bit more feel in the 3wd. Would the Ventus be a good fit here?

    I've got the Ventus 7x in my F9 as Yoyo said above. I played a few rounds this weekend with it and spent some time on trackman indoors last Thursday.



    The dispersion of this combo so far has been impressive. Great ball speeds (F9 is fast anyway), but the Ventus brought a couple more MPH out of the F9 vs the atmos black TS 7x for me.



    I love the feel. Very Fuji like to me with the whip kind of feel at impact. It feels like it punishes the golf ball at the bottom from just beneath the grip.

    I game the Evolution V as well, I can report similar findings. I came from an ADDI6X and it was just too soft in the butt, I'd always lose it left if I went after it hard. I was fit into the evo V 757X and the results are amazing. High flat bombs, stock swing its a little fall off fade, if I really get after it I can turn into a high towering draw. Similar SS as you, so very pleased I don't need to fear the lefts anymore! I'm consistently hitting parts of the range that were previously glory shots.



    It's smooth but still has a nice kick when you really load it. Unlike the ADDI, Id feel the head lagging way behind and flip to square the face and it was duck hook city.

    How would you compare the V to the Evo 1 ?
  • Krt22Krt22 Members Posts: 7,023 ✭✭
    From initial testing, they seem similar and I would say the evo V is smoother as advertised. I forgot my tool so didnt hit enough back to back, will do that more today. If it would stop raining I would like to get some outdoor LM data.
  • kptkpt Members Posts: 5 ✭✭
    I'm wondering which of the current Speeders is equivalent to the Evolution Tour Spec that came out along with the Evo I. I've checked the legacy shafts section of Fujikura's site and came up empty. My guess is the IV? If anyone has experience or thoughts on this I'd appreciate the input!

    I was fit for Fuji shafts last Feb. For ME... they all launched and spun very simiarly, but the control and feel with them was different.



    Evo II was most stable with the least about of kick and was most accurate. Evo III felt the "best" but dispersion was a bit worse, probably because it seemed a touch less stiff. Evo IV just came out and I remember telling my fitter I didn't get why they even came out with it because it was worse than II and III in every way. Maybe Evo V feels a bit better while keeping spin low?



    Evo II was such a unicorn and I wish I never got rid of it though. Very stiff tip, medium stiff middle, stiff handle. Most shafts with a tip section that stable tend to have soft butts to keep the thing feeling like a pole. This shaft seemed to put the softness in the mid which really helped me personally. I may go back to it this year if I cant get anything else to work out.
