An Open Win For The Fujikura Ventus TR Shaft

We know you watched it, who didn’t? The 150th Open was wrapped up in style by Cameron Smith.

A lot of the talk was on his impressive putting stats, but in this blog we are going to focus on the new shaft in his new driver.

Ventus TR

Cam Smith, was one of the Titleist players using the highly anticipated TSR drivers, which we will get to take a closer look at later in the season. However, hitting 60% of fairways with impressive distance with an average of 300 yards it was important he could trust his equipment to put him in contention. 

He is now using the latest edition to Fujikura VENTUS shaft range with the TR Blue in 6-X flex. So what does this shaft offer?

Born from the continuous quest for improvement and backed by enso®driven analytics and Tour feedback, VENTUS TR builds upon one of the most trusted and best-selling wood shafts in Fujikura history. TR is a new mid launch, low spin profile in the VENTUS line.

With VeloCore Technology providing an incredibly stable platform for performance, the additional integration of a unique Spread Tow carbon fabric works in unison to create advanced overall stability without compromising player feel.

Ongoing enso® analytics show that the shaft undergoes tremendous stress in the mid/handle section during the transition and downswing.  By incorporating an incredibly strong and ultra-lightweight Spread Tow carbon fabric, VENTUS TR is able to increase torsional stiffness in this specific section, helping to even further reduce twist and ovalization during the swing.

So Fujikura feel that this shaft is far more stable offering more consistency and in this case it has proved itself to be a Champion shaft.
