We generally do not recommend any shaft tipping, especially on a VENTUS black that is already tip stiff and low spinning. That being said Tour pros automatically do 1" tipping. We do not like to get i

Hi guys, quick note on tipping:   The Ventus lineup of shafts is unique in design by having the tip section as one of the stiffest parts of the profile. Having a 3.0” parallel gives you the ability

There’s more to it then swing speed obviously. I have a longer swing and don’t load it that hard from the top. I’d try and get tested for sure but I won the Ventus via this site and was able to visit Fujikra this summer and it was recommended I not tip.

@Fujikura Golf How would you compare the Speeder Evo series (specifically Evo III)to Ventus Blue? I noticed the shape of the EI Curves are pretty similar. I was fit into an Evo II for my driver and III for my fairway in 2017 but I kind of moved aware from it, but I had a good deal of success. Looking to maybe make a change away from my Hzrdus Smoke shaft into something with a little more stiffness in the tip but a softer mid to help with energy transfer and feel.

Depends how heavy the head weight is and what SW he wanted to play at. 2'' sounds pretty aggressive.

Its perfect trust me. I am right in that wheelhouse. Superspeed the last 9 months has this 53 year old right at 104mph. I play the Black 6s untipped and its not loose or boardy. Its goldilocks. I tried the Blue in the 7s and 6s and always went back to my Pro 2.0 TS. Got in the bay with the black and was amazed. It truly lowered the launch on my G410 plus a couple degrees and flattened the flight. I ended up lofting up a half degree and its still lower than the 2.0. I ended up having to raise tee height a bit too but center contact is amazing as Fuji says. And when you do miss the center I often look up and amazed that the ball is still close to my intended target line. Liked it so much I dropped the coin for the 7s Black in my 3 wood.

Played today with the Ventus Black 6X and it performed like a champ. Not boardy at all and feels stable through the swing. Love it. Was able to play both a baby draw and fade when needed and never felt like I was losing the swing. Hit a few smooth and also went after a couple and shaft felt great on either swing.

I am interested in the Black and the Red..... Thinking Black Driver and Red 3-wood.... I prefer a low/mid driver ball flight and the ability to throw it high with the 3 wood if I need to... Any help guys?

I’m clearly going to buy one this coming season after reading This thread, despite being perfectly happy with my current driver shaft.

im playing the black in my driver now as I have a high AOA and need to reduce spin and lower the flight.

i have the Ventus Blue in 8X in both my 3 wood and 5 wood and could not be happier. I used to always go back to old faithful (matrix 8m2) for FW shafts as they were the best feeling and also best at controlling my flight. Ventus is the first shaft to beat out the old candy apple red Matrix shafts.

I don't know what the unit of measurement is, but the Fuji site lists the 6x as being one "point" more tip stiff than the 7x. 86 vs 85. Butt stiffness is also within 2 "points", 72 vs 70. The 7x does have slightly lower torque 2.8 vs 3.1

 

Hopefully Fuji can jump in here, but based on the measurements they provide, it seems the 6 and 7 are very, very close to the same EI/stiffness/bend profile and it's more a decision for the player on static weight.

 

The 8x on the other hand seems to be a big jump in stiffness throughout the shaft.

Agreed. Love the old Matrix Altus. Still the best out there. I have it in a lot of my hybrids. I haven’t switched it out in my PXG hybrid because I was fit and when they did the fitting the Altus was not one of the shafts we could test. All my other hybrids have the Altus.

I thought I read from Fuji that they recommend not tipping the shaft at all. If someone needs it shorter to cut the butt end. Could be in driver only, I’m not certain. I have not tipped my Ventus Blue 8X in my 3 and 5 woods at all and they are playing/feeling/flighting great. Used to tip my Matrix 8m2 an inch when in my 3 wood. Have not had to with the Ventus.
