1/2 at your speed won't be too stiff. I'm slower than you and have mine 1/2 tipped. It's perfect for me in the head I have it in.

It’s funny it was actually reading your post back in this thread that first made me look at getting it .5” tipped 😂

 

Do you get enough height/stopping power on that bad boy?

Has anyone hit the ventus black or blue hb and the tensei pro hybrid? If so, what were the feel and ball flight differences for you?

 

I have the 100tx tensei pro in my ping crossover and it's good but the ventus black in my driver is so friggn' good I want to put a ventus in everything I can haha.

(SS: 108-112). I've got Blue 9x in Mizuno HMB 2 iron (tipped zero) and 4 iron (tipped 1/2). Both have lots of feel and produce a decent amount of launch and spin, which I like because they are usable hitting into greens. The 2i feels a little too loose and I would probably tip it 1/2 in. if I were doing it over again. And if you're looking for low bullet driving iron numbers, I wound definitely go straight to black. But blue works perfectly for how I play my long irons.

 

The only compliant I have is that these clubs feel incredibly light (and measure very light on scale). I went from 114g Modus steel to 95g Ventus graphite, so the drop in swing weight should have been a point or two, but it was more like 5-6 points. I had been using lead tape to get the weights up but finally just embraced the light feel and found a way to make it work. As long as I don't get too quick, these clubs are ridiculously easy to hit.

They can swingweight a little light in a driving iron , all dependent on the grips and head weight of how much, but Golfworks has rubber tungsten tip weights that I've used with success in the HB for DI's. Have you tried tip weights?

I got a Ventus Blue HB 9X installed into my 2021 Callaway X forged 18* UT and it really brought it to life vs the MMT 105TX that I originally ordered. Low / Mid trajectory and chases out like crazy. Once it starts getting wet in the PACNW I am curious to see how it plays as carry is king then. So far I am blown away by the entire Ventus line. Put them in Driver, 3 Wood, Hybrid and Utility. @Fujikura Golf when are the Ventus iron shafts coming out?lol! Just take my $$$$ now if they are over 120 grams!

The black profile in a 115g+ iron shaft would certainly get my attention!

I haven't, but that's a good thought, especially because I am thinking of moving to a 3i/5i instead of 2i/4i. I could add the weights when I switch out the shafts.

You can get a tungsten tip weight for graphite to up the sw... it'll extend the playing length about 1/4 inch.

Some DI's have a seat so that it won't affect it much. I bought the 21' Callaway X Forged UT and was surprised that it was seated enough to only change the depth bore about 1/8" , but If you only need a couple grams , you can slice the 1/4" tip in half and it won't affect playing length much at all.

Swapped the Ventus hyb into my Super hyb and liked it after on range session. Only shots off the deck. Ball height was great compared to the stock pro orange. So was the impact patterns.

I have the blue 90x an I have tried the tensei. It was not the 100 gram but I found the blue produced better launch meaning more launch angle but maintained the spin control. Plus I liked the stable feel better. Tensei has always felt loose to me.

Thanks for the feedback! Thinking about getting a black for my driving iron since I have the black in driver and 3 wood haha. I knew this ventus experiment would escalate quickly 😅

Hello All, 

 

Great thread here! 

 

Has anyone put the Ventus HB into a Srixion Zx Utility 2i

 

I’m thinking  of the Blue as that’s what’s in my driver 7x and 8X in 3 wood.

 

Torn between 9X and 10X, driver SS is in the 112-115 range. Will be using this off the tee and fairway. 

 

Appreciate any feedback from anyone that as it set up in the Srixon 

 

Thx

No. At least not yet. Marshal from fuji was recently on a live Instagram feed with Knudson and they talked iron shafts. Seems like they are working on things (probably always are) and that something may be coming soon. But didn’t know what the name would be.

I have played the Ventus Blue 9x HB in both a 4 iron and 2 iron. Nice shaft, plenty of feel. Seems to launch higher than the Ventus Blue that I have in my fairway woods. But I like the shaft a lot. Only complaint is that it brought my swing weight down by a LOT. Obviously moving from a steel Modus 120 to the 9x was going to do that. But it was way more than I expected. I've had to add a lot of lead tape to the head as a result, which I don't like.

 

If I were to do it over again, I would have some weight added to the head end during the install.

Ventus blue HB 9x has been ok for me i just can't adjust to the what translates as a very soft whippy feel with my very aggressive transition results have been ok accuracy wise but to high and a little to much spin at times  black 9tx on order.
