Many of the questions that Chad has been receiving are concerning the effects of tipping and tip to graphic measurements for specific shafts. When done properly, tipping can be a very effective tool to help a player dial in the perfect stiffness and feel for their swing type. However, getting a shaft that has been tipped too much or with an unknown tipping measurement can completely alter the way a shaft will play and feel. Chad explains in this short video.... The reality is that tip to graphic measurement is a very difficult reference for properly tipping shafts. Every year, the cosmetics and graphics [...]

Question: My magnum 44 stiff shaft allows me to hit the ball with a slight draw but I feel maybe not enough carry. The direction is good but I wonder if you have a stiff shaft ( or regular) that would be a better fit. If I go to regular shaft do I get to whippy or do you have a shaft you feel would keep me on line but allow a bit more distance.I'm a 10 and 67 years old. I hit driver 220 but looking for a shaft that might help. Jim Answer: Thanks for the [...]

Question: I was just wondering which shaft Fujikura offers that would best fit my swing. I have currently been seeking a place to try different exotic shafts by different vendors but I have not found any as of late. All places I have been have standard stock shafts. I did hit the Taylormade sldr with the Fujikura Motore Speeder TP stiff 6.3 Really enjoyed this shaft when hitting on a launch monitor. The question I have for this shaft is when I looked on your site and Taylormade site both had different specs for the same shaft. [...]
Question: Trying to decide between your shafts for my new driver. I am between Speeder 6.3 and Fuel 50. I hit the ball in the air 230 yards on average. I have a lower right to left ball flight. of course, I am looking for a little more distance and maybe a little more height on my drive. Thanks, Gary Answer: Thank you for contacting us at Fujikura. We appreciate your consideration for your next shaft purchase. The Motore Speeder 6.3 Tour Spec is not a higher ball flight shaft. The Specs of that shaft are geared more [...]
An anonymous questioner asks: "Who was the winner of this year's Fujikura Dealer Cup?" And it looks like Chad can't wait to answer.
Question: Chad, hi. Hey, I just spontaneously bought an M1 3wood with a PRO XLR8 shaft. it is amazing. I have the M1 driver which prompted this 3 wood purchase, but the shaft you guys have created holds up to my move really well. This was not the case with other times I have tried Fujikura. Long story short, I have an aldila greeneyes tourx in my driver. Trajectory is not overly high like you would think, but I game it because the torque is like 2.2 and you can really feel it. very stable. Even off the [...]
Question: I have a 47/48 inch Long Tom and swing about 88-90 mph. I hit the driver about 198 carry with a 20 yd roll. Can you suggest a shaft? William Answer: The longest I make a shaft is 46". So the longest I can get you at a finished playing length is a little over 47". With that in mind, I would suggest you try a few different shafts. The Pro 51 XLR8 and the SIX XLR8. Both are extraordinary distance shafts and will add yards to your drive. Regards, Chad Got a question about fit, Fujikura, [...]
Question: Was fitted for Fuel 50. Any comparable, low launch shafts you would recommend?..Swing speed 80-90 mph Tim Answer: The replacement for that shaft is the Pro 51 XLR8. I think that if you were fit for the 50 gram Fuel you would be very happy with this replacement. Thanks, Chad Got a question about fit, Fujikura, your golf game or just golf in general?
