DSC05954 Rory and Speeder DS

THE GOG BLOG by Rory Spears, Editor and Director of Content for the #1 Online news source in Chicago. Follow Rory on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter @GogBlogGuy. At demo day during the PGA Merchandise Show with a Fujikura Speeder Shaft.

Golfers if you are going to get the shaft, why not get the best shafts you can buy.

Hit your shots around the course knowing you can get the most out of every shot.

The Fujikura line of Speeder shafts are the best shafts in golf. They are the number one shaft not only on the PGA Tour, but on several other professional golf tours as well.

When you want the right shaft in your clubs, get the shafts that the pro’s who making their living playing golf play, the shafts made by Fujikura.

“What makes our shafts so good,” said Chad Embrey, project manager for Fujikura. “It’s the time and effort to get them right, it’s using the best process to manufacture them and using the best materials that are available in making them.”

Most recently at the AT&T Pebble Beach Tournament on the PGA Tour, the Darrell survey again had Fujikura as the no.1 driver shaft at the tournament. Just over 20% of the field was using Fujikura. The same was true last week at the Northern Trust Open, and Fujikura was the shaft used by winner Bubba Watson.

While the Speeder line of shafts has been most popular for years, at the recent PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fujikura launched a new state-of-the-art shaft the XLR8.

XLR8 shaft technology creates a stiffer handle and tip by moving weight into the butt end, which in turn generates more reactive mid-section which increases kick speed. The results according to Fujikura produce a more effcient energy to the club head with greater acceleration for maximum club head speed, power and distance. This technology will be available on three Fujikura golf shafts, the PRO, the SIX, and the Speeder PRO series.

“We are thrilled to introduce the extraordinary XLR8 technology. Once golfers see the pure power and distance they generate, they will go directly to a Fujikura Fitter to get one for themselves,” said Fujikura Marketing Manager Stephanie Hartgraves.

Custom fit shafts are used by 100% of touring professionals, but amateur and public golfers can now get the same shafts for their clubs, and 99% of golfers who get fit with Fujikura shafts, gain on the average of 13.5 yards.
