Fujikura is proud to announce the newest addition to the Ventus line of shafts, the HB. Ventus HB is designed specifically to enhance the performance of today’s hybrids and utility/driving irons. It features Fujikura’s revolutionary and proprietary VeloCore Technology found in Ventus wood shafts, which is a multi-material bias core designed to increase torsional stiffness and maximize energy transfer.
“After the success of the Ventus wood shafts, the demand for a hybrid shaft was extremely high. We heard requests from our dealers, Tour reps and golfers to develop a hybrid shaft with VeloCore Technology. We’re excited to introduce the new Ventus HB and we’re confident it will be as game-changing to golfers’ hybrids and utilities as it is to their woods,” Jeremy Butler, Director of Sales & Operations.
Featuring Fujikura’s proprietary multi-material bias core construction, VeloCore, the HB shaft is an ultra-stable and forgiving hybrid shaft. VeloCore combined with an ultra-stiff tip section promotes the ultimate stability through transition and impact that hybrid/utility clubs endure off the turf or even the thickest rough. Ventus HB has the lowest torque Fujikura has ever produced in a hybrid shaft and the stiffest tip section to reduce twisting and promote straighter shots.
Utilizing years of product development and understanding of why golfers play hybrids and utility irons, Ventus HB was developed to provide the proper launch and descent angles in two distinct profiles. Both profiles hit the launch windows golfers are seeking with a hybrid or utility while providing versatility for all types of shot conditions. The Ventus HB lineup was created to provide high-performance options for golfers looking for forgiveness and consistency in a high-lofted hybrid.
Ventus Blue HB – Designed to maximize forgiveness where you need it most, Ventus Blue HB promotes stability through transition and impact – especially through the turf – while enhancing energy transfer and ball speeds through an accelerated taper. Like the wood shaft counterpart, the blue profile has an accelerated taper and its butt and mid-section promote more efficient loading of the club for mid-launch performance. Ventus Blue HB combines a mid-trajectory with a moderate amount of spin to ensure your shots hold their line and stop on the green.
Ventus Black HB – Made for golfers that need to maintain or reduce spin, Ventus Black HB creates a fierce, penetrating trajectory that doesn’t waiver from your target line. It features a stiffer handle and mid-section than the blue model to stiffen the overall feel and promote lower launch and spin. Because of its stiffness, the flexes are designated as “TX” (Tour X) to convey they are stiffer than standard X flex. Like every Ventus model, Ventus Black HB was designed to promote on-center face contact and ultimate stability, especially for the highest of speeds.
Ventus HB is available in two launch profiles, Blue and Black, and a wide variety of weights and flexes, ranging from 64 grams to 105 grams and R2 up to TX flex. The Blue profile will be available starting September 1 and the Black will be available September 15, 2020. Test them at Club Champion today: clubchampiongolf.com.
