Fujikura Pro Shaft Review


Fujikura Pro Shaft (9)

50 Words or Less

The Fujikura Pro shaft has Fujikura’s trademark stability with smooth feel and a medium kick.


Earlier this year, pictures of a new Fujikura shaft started popping up across the internet.  The gear heads loved the look and the lack of hard information only drove interest higher.  Finally it was announced that Fujikura would be releasing a new Pro Series shaft.  In this review, we take a look at the Pro Series and how it stacks up to the rest of Fujikura’s line up.

The Fujikura Pro has a feel that most golfers will really like.  It has a medium kick in the mid-tip section and a smooth load.   This is offered without compromising the stability of the tip section.

To me, the Pro fits perfectly between the other current Fujikura shafts,the Fuel and the Speeder.  All of these shafts have great stability; the difference is in how smooth they are and how much kick they have.  The Speeder has the most kick, the Fuel has the least.  The Pro hits that “just right” middle ground.

I can’t remember a shaft that has generated as many texts and emails for its look as the Fujikura Pro.  My friends and many readers are absolutely over the moon for the industrial-sized, positive/negative branding on the upper portion of the shaft.  While I wasn’t as enamored with the look from the pictures, having the shaft in hand has changed my mind.  The way that the blue-on-black logo blends into the black-on-blue is very sharp, and at address there’s no distraction at all.

Fujikura Pro LM Data


Having gamed Fujikura shafts in my driver for quite a while, it was no surprise to me that the Fujikura Pro performed very well.  As you can see, the numbers that it produced in my SLDR driver are very nearly ideal with high launch and low spin.  Though the shaft has a smooth feel and good kick, it was still quite accurate as well.

The main thing you’ll notice in comparing the Pro Series to the Pro Series Tour Spec (which I’ll review separately at a later time) is that I was able to produce better club head speed and ball speed with the Tour Spec version of this shaft.  This is NOT an indication that the Tour Spec is a better/longer/fast shaft.  What it speaks to is that I found the Tour Spec to be a more natural fit for my tempo, and I had a more “in sync” feeling with that shaft.  I could very happily game either, but on the days that I collected data for this review, the Tour Spec was the one I fell into a rhythm with more easily.  As always, I highly recommend that you see a qualified club fitter to find the right shaft for you.

Fujikura Pro Shaft (3)


The Fujikura Pro is a fantastic addition to the Fujikura line up, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes their most popular shaft.  It offers great stability and performance without sacrificing fee,  all at an affordable price.

  • So, Pro 53 regular or Fuel 50 regular? 90-95 mph swing speed.

    • Matt Saternus

      I’d say Fuel, Bill would say Pro, and we’d both give you the stock (and correct) answer: get fit. :)



      • Let the record show, I’m a big fan of the Fuel as well. It’s currently the top contender in a Titleist 915 driver for me (not going to lie, sort of surprised). The Pro was great in my Cobra Bio Cell+ though. Couldn’t miss with it.

    How would you compare the pro to the matrix red tie? Looking for something potentially lower spinning, but with similar smooth kick and medium launch (also considering Kiyoshi white). Thanks

    • Matt Saternus


      I think the three you mentioned all deserve to be in the conversation. To me, the Matrix is the smoothest, the Oban is the firmest, and the Pro is in the middle, but that might be splitting hairs.



  • Stuart

    For a bio cell +, by the way, which apparently bill thought was a great pairing?

  • Brian Botterweck

    So I purchased a Mizuno JPX 850 with the Motore stiff shaft. Shaft says tour issue. Is it not stock then? It is just a little whippy but do not want xstiff because im scared to hard and lose distance. Im a 105-108. Is this in stiff a little more solid.

    • Matt Saternus


      Without seeing it, I couldn’t say if the shaft you have is stock or not. The stock shaft is a made for version of the Fujikura Motore Speeder.

    theres no proper fitter in my country, with a 95mph ss high spin player, should I try the evolution speeder 569 or the pro53?

    • Matt Saternus


      In my testing, I found the Speeder Evolution shafts to be – in general – somewhat lower spinning than the Pro series. If you’re a high spin player, I would favor the lower spinning option.
