What’s it good for? Are you using it as a driver replacement or a fairway wood?

Second tee option. It’s probably a little over kill but I like it .

So how playable do you think a Ventus red would be in the 60x or 70x option tipped one inch? And as well in your driver? 
 

what is the length of the original one? 42 inches?

Yes 42 but I have this one cut to standard 3 wood length. I think with the right tipping the red could be amazing. I love the blue. The black is just not my thing feel wise. I know most want the black. I like something I can feel a bit more.

I am honestly not sure. When I ordered it I ordered it cut to 3 wood length.

Nice!!! How is the Red at 90 grams feel wise? A little more loose than black but still hefty and high launch? 

I don’t think it feels loose at all. The launch is pretty amazing. It get up then gets flat and goes. 
 

the feel is great! I had a 80 gram UST v2 in it. This feel so much better. Plus it is very point and shoot.

Have not tried a Ventus but I am a fan of the Fuji red profiles. Have the Atmos Red Tour Spec in a Srixon 585 driver head and it’s great. I stick to the blues and reds too. Feel better and longer carry for me.

Wow that looks amazing! Man that frames the ball so nice imho.I'm an OO devotee as well and use it as my main driver. I'm not familiar with this shaft, so what can you tell me about it? Are you a high swing speed guy? I'm in the 95-100 range depending on my back. Too stout for me?

I'm looking for the right combo for me and my mini's. I've got both the 11.5 and 13.5 and am currently using a 43" Fujikura xlr8 pro 56. I have so much confidence on the tee with a cut down shaft on an OO head. Thanks

Ventus red - the underrated red headed step child of the Ventus line.  I love mine in driver.  If you’re a guy who doesn’t have a positive aoa with driver , try the red.  Gets it up and doesn’t spin

I was told the red 9x is very similar to the Rombax p95 shaft that was very popular back in the day.

Yep.  I haven’t hit the 9x. But I can imagine it would be. Rombax was similar in flight and spin for sure.

I say you nickname that club WAR ...... as @b.helts said “ what is it good for “.   
 

man.  That has to be a good combo.  With that and the super hybrid , you don’t need a driver or 3 wood.

It sure looks good. I love the smaller size and the profile of the Original One.

 

Been looking for an 11.5 to make up a short bag. But the 11.5 are rarer than hens teeth. 

 

The Original One should be offered in 9*, 10* and 11* lofts. If it were, lots of players would find the 275CC  head size compares favorably to 

the 400 plus CC size driver heads.

Similar for me, I play the 11.5 head (down to 9.5) with an x100 at 42.75 I have never driven the ball better....Crazy good

I missed somewhere on one of TXG’s episodes that they were referring to tipping a Ventus red 2 inches and produced good results in a driver.  Anyone recall this episode?
