Im considering putting a Ventus red in a 7 wood as well. Was also considering a CK pro blue or an AD IZ. How do you like it in your 7 wood?


I think it’s great. Flys high, lands soft, doesn’t get stuck in the wind. Mines tipped quite a bit, so it plays a little different than the stock red and a little more similar to the black.

Mine are 83 & 91 respectively.

WOOOOAH. Wait a second. When did Fuji finally decide to add a Red 8? I asked a long time ago, twice, and they said, "No."

 

We are talking driver/fairway shaft, right? Not Hybrid.

Yes, we are discussing an 83 gram fairway wood shaft, not a hybrid.

I hate the red too but it works.  I have a Red 6x in my driver and 7s in my fairway.  The ball flies beautifully and I simply can’t argue with that...

 

I was in an Atmos TS Blue and Diamana BF before the Ventus.  Atmos got me great ball speed and dispersion and BF great launch.  The Red seems to be a great combo of both.

I was curious to hear how people found the Ventus Red to compare to the Atmos TS Blue, as I find the red to be stiffer in the handle to where I can really notice it. That being said the results are unreal in my 3 wood, it actually doesn’t require as much effort as the handle seems to beg for it. The blue just feels wild to me, and it only works if I time it just right. Black in driver is perfect mix of both, so much that I should have tested in my three wood but red have immediate results. Going to try it in my 5 wood now.

Where are we getting the Velocore Red 8X Fairways?

 

I know JD's had the Red 9X, do they have 8's too?

Little late to reply but if anyone else is wondering I’d say the AD-DJ is the closest GD to the Ventus red. It’s their stiffest shaft in the butt section, similar to the red. Both soften up in the middle. Difference would be that the DJ plays softer in the tip. But if you tipped a DJ you could get similar characteristics to the Ventus Red and they are pretty easy to find on eBay at a good price. I actually have one I’d be willing to sell also, but it plays as my 43.25 inch fairway wood so you have to drop it to a 5 wood length if you want to stiffen the tip.

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

what clubhead speed?
 

my friend has the  Venus Red in R but thinks its too stiff for him

 

hes  70 too  but swings it  90-94mph with Driver

How long has he been using it? At 93-98mph I thought the R was really stiff for about two rounds and range work…stuck with it and eventually evolved to the point that I just switched to S in same weight last week.  I chalk this up to the basic differences in the Velocore design compared to the EvenFlow I originally had.  The Ventus tip just seems to center everything perfectly every time for me.

just got it

 

One session  ,doubt he will give it much  more

 

he  got it at trade price so shouldnt lose much

 

I got   advice locally that it should suit him he can be erratic but his good shots are very good

 

Hes  well off guy  not that bothered about the  expense

Any updates to this? Just got fit for the Back in my driver and think the Red would be good in my fairways. Just can’t fork over all that money for two reds for my 3&5 woods. Any suggestions?

If you like the red then a speeder evo5 is very similar in feel, to me. 

 

Th3 diamana tb is also very similar, from a profile perspective. I haven't hit the tb. I have hit the evo5 and I have a red in my 3w.

I have never hit the red, just know lots of ppl use the red in a fairway if using a black in the driver.

 

Always been a fan of the Evo line. I’ll look at the Evo5. Thanks.

Makes sense to me my friend. The Black and Red from an EI profile are almost identical in the butt and mid till you get to the tip section. With the red having more kick.  
 

Two shafts similar to a Velo Red in my testing/ownership experience are both from
Fuji oddly enough. Atmos TS Blue and Speeder EvoV are both similar to Red. Prolly could pic up a couple Atmos TS Blue for a great price and get them retipped to save some dough rae me. 
 

also from Diamana BF or ZF are similar to Red as well IMO with the right weight and flex of course.

Thanks brother. Back in the day my favorite driver shaft was the Fuji Tour Spec 6.2. I have been looking at the Atmos TS Blue on the bay and that is more in my price range. I’ll look for a 7s for my 3&5 wood. Thanks again.

You will love it. I played it when it came out fitted in my 3wood. At that time I was Atmos TS Black 6S in driver, TS Blue 7S in 3weird, and TS Black 9S in my hybrid. Plus they look sweet! Glad you found some. It’s so stable and smooth
