enso®-Enhanced PRO 2.0 Shaft Dramatically Improves Launch and Reduces Spin
Vista, California. (January 18, 2018) – Fujikura, the leader in performance golf shafts, is proud to unveil the second generation of their popular PRO shaft series, the PRO 2.0. Originally designed to have a softer handle section to help golfers load the shaft and deliver the clubhead with more speed at impact, the PRO series has been long heralded by Tour players, amateur golfers, and club fitters for the benefits of a profile that aids in launch while also keeping spin down.
The latest iteration in the PRO series, the new PRO 2.0 builds on the latest in material knowledge, the most recent research data of Fujikura’s in-house engineering team, and feedback from Pros. The result is a shaft with a more effective loading zone to store more energy in the downswing which translates to more clubhead speed. Additionally, the torsional stiffness has been increased by 14% to produce greater overall shot control and lower spin compared to the original Pro. The PRO 2.0 will be on available for demo at the PGA Show Demo Day on January 23 and available at over 600 qualified Fujikura charter dealers beginning February 01, 2018.
“Like all our shafts, the PRO 2.0 has been designed utilizing enso®, a 3D motion-capture technology that no one else in the shaft industry has,” said Alex Dee, Vice President at Fujikura Composites America. “This technology and advanced data analytics has allowed us to crack the code on how club performance and ball flight are affected by shaft characteristics and swing type. When we compared to the original PRO, we saw the 2.0 was significantly easier to swing, had tighter shot dispersion, and lower spin to deliver the club head with more power, control and distance. We were thrilled with the result.” Mr. Dee has over 19 years of experience in engineering performance golf shafts.
The Pro 2.0 is painted in “Destroyer Grey” and has a metallic blue design to carry over the theme from the original PRO. The Tour Spec model is painted in our “Tour Spec white” to denote the stiffer profile. They will be available in weight ranges from 57 to 87 grams (5, 6, 7, 8) and in flexes starting at R2 up to X. The shaft will retail for $225 MSRP; $250 for the Tour Spec model. Additionally, there is a Hybrid option available for $140.
