The newest premium shaft line from Fujikura is the Ventus shaft. Ventus is made using Tour-inspired performance and strenuously tested components using Fujikura’s patented ENSO system. Ventus features the first ever shaft with VeloCore technology and is designed to give players mid-launch and low-spin. This all-new material weave boosts the driver and metal wood clubhead performance by increasing energy transfer and stabilizing off-center hits. Ventus is designed to deliver the tightest dispersion of any Fujikura shaft ever, especially at Tour-level swing speeds. Players swinging their driver above 105 miles per hour who are in the market for a tip-stable shaft without a harsh feel will love the all-new Ventus with Velocore.

Key Features

VeloCore infuses a full length pitch of 70 Ton carbon fiber with high-modulus 40 Ton carbon fiber to minimize shaft twisting at impact.

Maximum Carbon Fiber Content is made throughout the shaft and prepreg to ensure the best performance through high-quality material matrixes.

Straight taper design enhances the energy transfer during the swing by improving loading and player feel.

Design and Technology

Fujikura established themselves as the leader in worldwide golf shaft research in design by installing their ENSO system. This 3D motion capture system allows engineers to precisely build shafts that complement elite players’ swings in real time. Using this data, they have designed Ventus to be the ultimate tool for the better player. At high driver swing speeds, the impact generates more energy and the golf shaft must be stable enough to perform optimally. The 70 Ton carbon fiber used in the Ventus shaft is 150% stronger than the next leading T1100g material used by other shaft models. More stability in the shaft means more stability in the clubhead. Ventus is promising better MOI for improved forgiveness, more ball speed from better energy transfer, and an extremely stable tip section without a boardy or harsh feel.

I tested the Ventus shaft in my Ping G400 Max driver at 45 inches in the 70g X-stiff model. During testing, Ventus was an outstanding performer. As a player who believes in the shaft’s influence over strike point and player comfort, I am always happy to see a product that delivers on its promises. I could feel the smoothness of 

Ventus even though I was playing an extra-stiff shaft. The firm tip section delivered on its promise to make my driver longer and I recorded faster ball speeds with the Ventus than I have with my gamer, the Tensei CK Pro Orange 70TX. Ventus also delivered on increasing dispersion. I saw my miss tolerance rise on poor swings.
Ventus has been engineered for the highest swinging players. Players that need a more stable shaft but do not enjoy the feeling of rigid or harsh extra-stiff offerings will love the feedback and feel of Ventus. Already gaining traction on Tour with some of the game’s best players, Ventus is a must try for any player looking to get the most performance from his or her golf swing.


  • Full-length pitch 70 Ton carbon fiber in Ventus gives golfers more forgiveness with their driver at high speeds.
  • The weave of lighter, 40 Ton, fibers retains the smooth feel of softer shafts without sacrificing performance.
  • The mid-launch, low-spin design complements modern drivers and delivers more distance and accuracy.


  • Players used to a firmer feeling driver shaft may not enjoy the softer feedback of the Fujikura Ventus shaft.
  • The $350 price range may be difficult to justify without enough performance benefits over stock offerings.
  • Golfers seeking an ultra-low launch and spin combination will likely prefer a higher bend point shaft.
