Fujikura Speeder Evolution IV Golf Shaft Review

Fujikura Speeder Evolution IV Shaft Review

By Russ Ryden, Fit2Score, A Dallas Fort Worth Club Fitter & Club Maker

The Fujikura Speeder Evolution IV released in 2018. The review of the Evolution I was published in 2015, the Evolution III in 2017. I see the first three generations as variations on a theme. The slope of the profile got flatter from generation to generation. Flatter slopes or higher tip to butt rations tend to facilitate lower launch. The Speeder Evolution IV takes the next step in reducing launch/spin.

It has been a long time since I looked at Fujikura shafts. Review samples have been difficult to obtain. The Atmos covered in this review was introduced in 2017. It is offered by several club companies as a $200 premium upgrade.

The Fujikura Motore Speeder VT is an Asia only product. A hand full of them arrived in a box of review samples and I could not resist looking at their profiles.

KBS TCI Graphite Iron Shaft Review

KBS TCI Graphite Iron Shaft Review

By Russ Ryden, Fit2Score, A Dallas Fort Worth Club Fitter & Club Maker

Following the success of the KBS Carbon Fiber Hybrid shaft released in 2017, KBS has created light weight parallel iron shafts. Rather than me explaining the shaft, listen to Kim Braly at the PGA 2018 merchandise show discuss its development and pre release testing.

The shaft does not have a flex designation on its label. The number is the 6 iron swing speed which is your first cut and fitting the shafts. Lets take a look at the profile and data.

TrueTemper EvenFlow Red Driver Shaft Review

TrueTemper EvenFlow Red Shaft Review

By Russ Ryden, Fit2Score, A Dallas Fort Worth Club Fitter & Club Maker
The Golf Center at the Highlands, Carrollton Texas

The Project X EvenFlow line was designed for the mid swing speed range golfer. The Red is the third shaft in the series. The EvenFlow Blue and Black the mid and low launch versions were reviewed in the fall. This video was shot in January at ACCRA day at the PGA Merchandise show. We were outdoors in the wind, the video is not great, but the content is. Bill starts the discussion of the EvenFlow at the 3:30 mark.

At the time this video was shot the EvenFlow Red had not been released. Now that it is we can look at the profile and compare it to the EvenFlow Black and EvenFlow Blue.

Mitsubishi KuroKage XD Shaft Review

Mitsubishi KuroKage XD Driver Shaft Review

By Russ Ryden, Fit2Score, A Dallas Fort Worth Club Fitter & Club Maker
The Golf Center at the Highlands, Carrollton Texas

The KuroKage XD joins the aftermarket family of KuroKage X driver shafts. This started with the KuroKage Proto TiNi several years ago. The KuroKage Proto morphed into the KuroKage XM which was simply updated graphics on a very successful shaft. Now, the KuroKage XT has been updated to the KuroKage XD.

The KuroKage XD has a dual wrap of Titanium Nickel prepreg in the tip as you can see in this image. Titanium Mickel (TiNi) is an elastic wire that immediately springs back to its original shape when stretched. It is used to increase the tip stability of the shaft. If a single wrap is good, as illustrated by multiple PGA Tour wins, Then a double wrap should be better. This is one of an array of that tip reinforcements used by Mitsubishi Chemical. The Tensei Pro White and Tensei Pro Blue have boron reinforced tips.  The Tensei Pro Orange has high density MR70 in the tip.
