Poor Man's Ventus


Recommended Posts

Looking for some advice on what some you have found that would be close to a Ventus Black. I have been looking for used but not much luck as I am located in Canada.

My Town is not ideal for anything other than off the rack S and R for woods and very little for X in irons in fitting carts. Local Shops build woods from fitting carts  and sell them to customers leaving the next guy out of luck to demo, and with golf growing the problems of availability are only getting worse.

Would also like some input on where your favourite online components are purchased if you are Canadian!

 

 

I frequent golfworks.ca and golftown.com currently but find not all is available on demand.

Tour spec? These are more available and for quite a bit cheaper... Hmmm

 

Yes, sorry, of course the TS model. I dont even consider the non-TS model a real shaft, much like the non-Velocore Ventus.

I don't know how much more "budget" either of these would be... but the Fujikura Pro 2.0 TS is another great shaft. Also, if you're in Canada, you may have a (relatively) easier time finding a used Accra TZ5 shaft. The TZ5 will be a lot closer to the Ventus black profile vs. the softer tipped TZ6.

Thank-you for all the response, my plan is to get a fitting later in the summer when I travel south. Think the Ventus Black is right for me but looking for a option to plug and play before I get to my fitting. This approach may or may not help me save a few shackles along the way, but at least it is keeping my mind active as the snow melts and courses slowly start to open up!

I used to Play the Fuji Fuel the non tour spec. Did a fitting for it in my old Anser and it was miles better. Plus it wasn't an all white shaft.

Check in at TorontoGolfNuts forum and also Kijiji.

 

I recently bought a Red Velocore 5 Regular via Kijiji, from a golf course pro shop out of Winnipeg.  They also had Velocore Blue and Black but they sold quickly.   My Red Velocore was a factory Callaway upgrade shaft, with Cally tip and grip, since replaced with a Titleist tip.

I Got the RDX Black in my 3 wood and man It has a great feel. I have hit the Ventus Black with Velcro in a driver and the to have similarities that is for sure compairing and apple to an orange. I didn't do a big fitting just one with the Titleist stock cart options, really enjoying the TSI3. I am able to play it .75 higher in loft and club maintains spin and trajectory very well, looking forward to seeing how it performs when the wind picks up.

My mind set was that if the fit showed positives I would track a same soft down for driver trials.

 

Thanks guys
