Recommended Posts

I recently got fitted in to the new Ping G425 Max with Fujikura Ventus Red 7S shaft, any shafts in the market that have similar profile to the Ventus Red?? GD, Mitsubishi, others. Thanks

 

Ps. I just hate the red color of the shaft ☹️ and also have someone able to hook me up with Tour AD shafts.

Pretty decent thread already going on this. Fuji has said the red is actually pretty close to the atmos blue tour spec in terms of profile/feel. I have an old motore vc tour spec 7.3 that i think would be very close as well. However with both of these comparable shafts, you wont be getting the 70ton pitch bias velocore which is what makes the ventus... so good ...and dominating. If you fit in that profile, you might overlook the color... 🤷‍♂️

@APRNVJ I'm just the opposite, really dig the red color ... besides loving the shaft!

I tested many shafts before buying new Ventus Velocore Red for driver and fairway wood.  I wasn't big on "red" color either, but haven't noticed it since.  Go figure.  That said, Red does get its fair share of attention especially when a 70yr old smacks the ball 250-270 yards down the middle.  Youngster playing partners wonder how the ole man out-drove them. Lol

I can easily overlook shaft color but not head design.  Kinda like overlooking wheels but NOT TT HP  lol

I’ve been thinking and I might just over look the color haha. The thing that bugs me a bit  is I just believe that there must be a Tour AD shaft, maybe one of those shafts that provides the closest performance to the Ventus Red, I will save a ton of money.


Unfortunately there is really nothing in the Tour AD family that is similar since they are mostly the same design throughout the range. The closest shaft, ironically, is also red (M9003).

If the color is really an issue, it can be solved pretty cheaply with a $2.99 can of Krylon.

Krylon won't stick to a painted graphite shaft.

Personally I love that it’s red. Might be dating myself but growing up my favorite driver was the Titleist 975D with Graffalloy Red. In fact my TSi3 in a Ventus Red is arriving next week and can’t wait to bring back some good ol memories. 

Grafalloy Prolite 35 was badass...

Ok, I didn't mention you have to rough it up with a little sandpaper first. But more importantly, who cares what it looks like if it performs well for YOU.

It’s far from an offensive red, it’s pretty subdued as far as a red shaft can go. It looks good, and performs better. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Agree with above poster on it feels similar to a Atmos Tour Spec Blue in many regards. 
 

Personally love the color of the VRed and have one on the way for my SIM 2 Max. Interested to feel this vs the Tensei AV Raw Blue, Atmos TS Blue, and the Diamana TB 

 

On raw looks alone the VRed is great by me

If the Ventus Red is a good fit and you absolutely have to go with a GD product, I would be looking at the AD TP. The TP handle isn't quite as stiff and the tip is a little stiffer compared to the Ventus Red. In a fairway wood, I would look at the AD F. Softer tip section compared to the Ventus Red and very active feel.

Never tried the vred but the TB is stouter than the AV raw blue. You can really feel the thickness difference in the shafts with your fingers
