I have only put in a few swings on the 2024 Ventus Blue so far but I think it is a very similar feel to the original Ventus Blue. While the numerical difference might look to be small, the handle section feels softer than TR Blue. I will get a few more swings in with it today and will definitely compare the 3 Blue models soon.

Thanks.  I expected a softer handle.  Great color.

That's disappointing, I was about to order an ai Smoke with that shaft.

Some are saying 4/1

“Minimizing miss hit shots through stability” 

 

 

I play Ventus blue 6x/tx in driver & 7x in fairway. It’s an amazing product. I’d love to see some data from tour player testing/“enzo” to show the upside in the new product. It looks great & I may buy one for fun but I’m struggling with how I’ll get more ballspeed when I’m getting 1.49/1.50 smash on good swings.

I thought all the reviews would drop this morning. So far, crickets. Wonder if it’s just a new paint job and nothing more. Or I’m just expecting too much. Lol

 

I saw an interview with someone from Fuji claiming that 85% of players were getting an extra 2-3 mph BS. 

 

That's a big claim and I've placed my order for the ai Smoke Max with the 5X, I figure I've got a month to change the shaft to something else if the reviews don't meet the claims.

Possibly if they were actually fit into the shaft (by the Fujikura staff) vs. buying off-the-rack/not fitted. But yeah, 85% for 2-3 mph ball speed is a big claim. Unfortunately, most fitters don’t give quite the TLC as the Fujikura fitters with Enzo technology in their fitting studio. 
 

With that said, mine will be here next week to go into my PXG Black Ops driver. Was fitted into the older model when fitted at PXG. Was super straight and hard to get offline. Decided to wait and hold out for the newer 2024 model. Hopefully it’s a seamless transition.

So they've already got the velocore plus black and red in the video, strange they delay them for release

Probably fine tuning and doing final testing before official release.

They had different release dates with the original versions too. Blue was in the spring of 2019 and black and red were released together later in the fall. I’m thinking they’ll come out a lot sooner, but probably wanted to get the blues out the door first since it’s targeted towards a bigger market of golfers.
