The Motore X golf shaft extends Fujikura’s dominance in speed and feel. The Motore X uses higher carbon fiber contents to create a golf shaft that is easier to swing yet incredibly stable. The Motore X golf shaft comes in two offerings, F1 and F3. These different profiles allow golfers to get their ideal fit in a golf shaft that can improve performance at a budget-friendly cost.

Key Features

The balance between the F1 and F3 Motore X offerings covers almost all swing speeds of golfers.

The Motore X shaft offers premium materials and performance at a reduced cost compared to other aftermarket golf shafts.

Motore X gives players additional distance and feel with its smoother profiles.

Design and Technology

Both Motore X golf shaft options feature the same reinforced bias core. This core stiffens the handle section of the golf shaft while the accelerated taper retains more feel. 

40 ton carbon fiber create additional stability throughout the golf shaft so that energy transfer from your swing to the ball for maximum distance. F3 is billed as a mid spin, mid to high launch golf shaft and the F1 is low to mid launch and spin.


  • The Motore X delivers premium performance without the higher price tag of other aftermarket golf shafts.
  • The blend of F1 and F3 make the Motore X line one of the most versatile golf shafts available.
  • The reinforced handle section of the Motore X feels stable but not rigid and delivers great speed through impact.


  • The Motore X uses a smaller number of diverse materials when compared with other aftermarket golf shafts.
  • The addition of tour extra stiff flexes for the F1 model would give the Motore X a better coverage range.
  • Golfers looking for an extremely tip stiff golf shaft will likely fit into other options.

Our Experience

The Motore X golf shaft from Fujikura is a really high quality golf shaft. For the price, especially, the Motore X will surprise many. The F1 shaft performed very well for me in terms of both launch and spin without feeling harsh or difficult to swing. Players looking to increase launch and maximize carry will likely be able to do that with the F1 Motore X over some more tip stiff designs.
