    What about in a 3 wood?

    Thanks

    I don't have it in my 3W yet, but at first it will go straight in. Fujikura doesn't recommend tipping until 5W

    Has anyone had a chance to compare this to the tour black or blue? The tour black 6x was a good fit for me in the cobra f9 but could use a little more launch on average.

    It's interesting that the chart you posted has the Evo I and Evo V at lower launch and spin than the Evo III when Fujikura's website chart has it the opposite. Now I'm all sorts of confused. I play the Evo II 661 in my driver and it is truly a unicorn shaft. Was going to replace my HZRDUS shafts in my fairways with the Evo III 757 but now I'm thinking I'll just put in Evo I's. Don't have the $$$ to upgrade to the Evo V's unfortunately.

    Sorry for any confusion. The V launches similar but spins less than I and III. The V is significantly improved on the original Evo I however, carry yards, flatter flight, etc.



    So the II and IV will still be your lower launch and spinning options.

    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.


    Any tipping on the evo 5 with that speed?

    Nope, no tipping. I like to go after it on a certain hole I play on my home course. I havent had any issues with it hooking/slicing etc. Feels great though. Only issue is that it is easy to hit a little too high but thats not a big thing in my book.

    Dang it. I was fit for the V so I was thinking I could get the 1 since it was similar. Looks like I will be holding out now.

    Hey Fuji,



    What sort of behavior will the Ventus have in response to tipping? Would a 1/2" trip for a heavy head/Taylormade adapter stiffen the tip section up too much?

    I think from what I've read that tipping it 1/2" would stiffen the whole shaft up by 1/2 flex but should have no affect on the bend profile.



    Personally, without getting fit I'm looking at the 60 gram stiff and maybe getting it tipped 1/2" vs the 60 gram x flex straight in. I am almost alway in between stiff and x. I am also curious about your question since this is billed as a really stiff-tip profile, I am wondering if the X flex variants are just going to be too stiff for me. For me, I was fit for the Evo II 757 in Stiff, but would like to move down to 60 grams this year. I was also considering the ventus 70 Stiff and playing it a little shorter.....decisions, decisions.
