Fujikura ZCOM Six Review

Fujikura ZCom Six ShaftThe Fujikura ZCOM Six is one of the most popular shafts from Fujikura, and certainly one of those shafts that doesn’t need much introduction.  Nevertheless, the ZCOM is also one of those shafts that doesn’t necessarily get the wide-spread praise that some of the other Fujikura shaft receive. But let me tell you, this is one great shaft due to many characteristics.

The ZCOM is an ultra-lightweight shaft that increases launch angle and spin and performs extremely well for a wide range of players. Players from Senior to the PGA tour, all have benefited from this shaft.

Considered to be a medium launch, medium spin shaft. The higher torque (4.5) coupled with a light weight (range of 52 to 59 grams), makes this shaft a monster for increasing distance and carry.

The ZCOM bending profile allows for a flatter ball flight which is why the better players like this ultra light shaft. For above average to better players with smooth tempos, the ZCOM is truly a shaft built for speed and distance.

Player Reviews-

“The Z Com shafts are premier possibly the best shafts on the market especially the SIX”

“Simply the best distance shaft on the market. I sell ton’s of these monster’s.”

Fujikura Blur Driver Shaft

Fujikura Blur driver shaft

Overview

The Fujikura Blur has been hailed the Fastest Shaft in Golf and is catching fire in popularity for both tour and recreational players.  There is no doubt Fujikura is capitalizing on another fine addition to their glowing line of shafts.

The new Fujikura Blur was first introduced at the Players Championship in May of 2010 and was met with accolades, especially Ricky Barnes and Alex Cjeka.

Fujikura is definitely putting the Blur front and center as their lightweight flagship.

Technology-

The Blur is a super lightweight shaft that utilizes the proprietary VEXX Carbon Interweave to its fullest.  Now the VEXX is certainly at the forefront of the shaft itself being the most innovative construction of the light-weight and ultra thin carbon tapes woven together.

Optimal stiffness and feel are the primary benefits of the VEXX technology.  This is because carbon interweave technology places more carbon fibers in the direction of the shaft loading.  The end result is a stronger, stiffer, and more responsive shaft.  Another anomaly, albeit a positive one, is the fact that the Blur is a mid launch, mid spin, with a mid bend point shaft, something rarely seen in this weight class.

“It’s the lightest weave we’ve ever encountered by far, the VEXX woven-fabric lends itself to a lighter weight but also has the feel, torque and stiffness properties associated with a heavier shaft.” According to Fujikura President and COO Dave Schnider

Fujikura Speeder Driver Shaft

Fujikura SpeederOverview-

The Fujikura Speeder has been a flagship shaft and bestseller for many years.  What makes this shaft so good is the following it has on the tours, there are many loyal users of the Speeder. Fujikura announced recently that the Speeder shaft was the #1 shaft on the PGA tour for 8 years running! Certainly a great tribute to the greatness of this shaft.

The shaft is built for the more advanced player but recently Fujikura made it more accessible for the average player by offering a number of choices within the model.

Triax technology is at the heart of the Speeder success – a carbon fiber woven in honeycomb structure giving the shaft extraordinary abilities to withstand twisting that occurs during the swing.

Player Reviews-

“it just feels great…”

“The best control shaft I’ve used and is still considered one of the best of all times and still gets used by some of the pros”

“I am very impressed with its performance. This shaft has a ton of kick! I am also amazed with accuracy of this shaft especially considering the shafts light weight”

Fujikura Motore Speeder Driver Shaft

Overview/Technology-

Fujikura released the Fujikura Motore Speeder in 2009′ with strong expectations.  I mean combining the best of two fantastic shafts in the Motore and Speeder cannot be anything less than fantastic!  And to be honest, the shaft has lived up to the hype.

The Motore Speeder is the most technologically advanced shaft they’ve made yet to date.  The shaft features the world’s first 7-Ply Cross Axis design. The major advantage of this shaft is indeed the technology behind it – 7 Axis technology, which claims a significant loss in energy and promotes a great feel as well as a kick seen by no other shaft. The Motore Speeder main advantage is definitely its ability to hold its characteristics under stress.  Reduce shaft deformation was the goal.  Made for players with relatively low spin coupled with high ball speeds. The result is a medium to high ball launch with extended carry.

The Motore Speeder offers two models, the blue and red model – otherwise known as the .0 (red) and 1.0 (red).  Both of the models taut the 7-Axis technology with main difference.  The Red model is slightly weaker in the butt which makes for a slightly higher launch and fairly low spin.  The Blue model has a lower launch and lower spin rates for those of you who “load” the shaft more.

Fujikura Motore Summary-

This shaft has proven itself in 2010′ and expect more to come in 2011′. If you like technology, put the Fujikura Motore Speeder on the short list. Being the worlds first 7 axis weave technology, makes this shaft something special. A significant reduction of twisting and rounding of the shaft resulting in maximum kick and carry without giving up accuracy, will be Fujikura’s push on this great shaft.
