They feel pretty similar to me.  I also got very similar numbers between the 2.   If you like the RDX it probably isn't worth the money to switch to a Ventus.   However this is WRX......

If you like the HZRDUS Black another shaft to try which can be had for less than the Ventus is the ATMOS Black

I game the Ventus Black and demoed the RDX Black at my local golf store.  VB has great feel to it for being a low/low shaft.  The RDX Black felt dead to me.  The owner was kind enough to let me swap the head out and do testing side by side.  VB launched 1 degree lower and was 300 rpm less on average than the RDX Black.

Ventus Black and Hzrdus Smoke Black are fairly similar in the 60 gram range. Just better materials in the Ventus. In the 70 and 80 gram range their profiles differentiate. Ventus becomes more "blue board" and Smoke Black becomes more "white board". In general, Ventus Black will have a stiffer handle and stiffer tip than Smoke Black.

This actually helps a lot! Did you notice any difference in dispersion between the two, since velocore is supposed to be magical?

Not really.  Nothing substantial enough to make one stand out more than the other.

I figured! I have heard the ventus is somewhat smoother, but that’s all relative to the individual. 

A lot more feel than RDX Black for sure.  For me if I can get a low/low shaft with feel, then that's just icing on the cake.

I’ll agree with that statement! If it’s smoother than the RDX, then I’ll probably get one. I just like that the RDX is a no up charge shaft with the drivers I am eyeing, but who am I kidding. We all know I’m going to get the ventus, because why not hahaha!

I think the RDX Black is smoother than the Ventus Black.  I’ve played the Ventus Black untipped in a SIM last year and there’s nothing blue board buttery smooth about it and I have a very quick transition.  I did not like the feel of the Ventus.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
