For many golfers, Fujikura golf shafts have become the go-to favorite for high performance. The Ventus series specifically is on pace to become one of Fujikura’s most successful models ever.

 The Ventus Black is the lowest launching, most tip stiff version within the Ventus line and we put it to the test to see how much  distance  and  forgiveness  we could get using the Velocore technology. 

Key Features

Velocore is used in the Ventus Black shaft to create more stability and add forgiveness to drivers and fairway woods.

Ventus Black features a multi-material bias core that can increase velocity through impact and enhance the delivery efficiency for many golfers.

70 ton carbon fiber and 40 ton fibers are blended to create the ideal balance of stability and feel.

Design and Technology

Ventus Black is packed with material advantages. Firstly, Velocore is used to increase the shaft’s stability during the  golf swing to improve clubhead impact  performance, especially on mishits.

 Rather than using T1100 as most companies have, Fujikura created the Ventus Black with a combination approach of 70 ton and 40 ton pitch carbon fiber to enhance strength but retain a smoother feel. The result is a golf shaft with explosive performance that is easier to swing at all club head speeds.


  • The Fujikura Ventus Black is one of the most stable shafts tested yet does not feel harsh.
  • Ventus Black seems to enhance the stability of the golf club as it impacts the golf ball leading to higher levels of distance consistency and more accuracy.
  • Velocore offers golfers more forgiveness while allowing them to play whatever driver they choose.


  • Ventus Black’s firm butt section may be too rigid for the preferences of slower swing speed golfers .
  • Ventus Black is not available in tour extra stiff flexes that are often preferred by very high swing speed players.
  • Players will need to visit authorized Fujikura dealers to test or demo the Velocore Ventus Black golf shaft.

Our Experience

Ventus has been a shaft range that seems to outperform its competition since its release. Ventus Blue – the original Ventus – is an excellent golf shaft. Ventus Black however, fit me to a tee. Ventus Black began as a prototype for Dustin Johnson, and while I am no professional golfers, my swing often is well suited by low launch,  low spin  profiles like the Ventus Black in my  driver  and  3 wood .

 The defining factor for me was how much control I seemed to gain from Ventus Black. Everything seemed to end up closer to target even on my worse swings. It’s difficult to say definitively, but Velocore seems to be 100% making a difference in the overall forgiveness of my clubs and I’m sure many of you would find similar results.
