Fujikura Introduces the Newest in the Speeder Evolution Line of Performance Shafts

Evolution IV Features Most Advanced, Premium Materials Ever in a Speeder

Vista, CA – Fujikura, the leader in performance golf shafts, is unveiling the fourth iteration of the Speeder Evolution line of tour-proven performance golf shafts.

Speeder has been one of the most played and most successful shaft brands played on tour since the late 1990’s. The original Speeder 757 paved the way for what we now know as tour-quality aftermarket golf shafts. Speeder Shafts have not stopped innovating and improving since.

The newest in a long line of Speeders, the Speeder Evolution IV, is developed with the most advanced technologies in the graphite shaft industry. Building on the performance, engineering and material integrations of the Evo II and Evo III, the Evo IV sets the new standard. The IV is based on the profile of the II (low launch and low spin), but has a slightly softer mid to tip section to increase launch angle while maintaining low torque and spin with added high-strength materials.

The materials and engineering processes that make up the IV are more advanced than any Speeder that came before. New technologies include a new High-performance intermediate modulus 70-ton material, for lightweight stability and a new “Engineered Outer Bias Technology” that creates smoother loading feel. Technologies that carry over from previous Evolution shafts include MCT (Metal Composite Technology), 90 Ton Carbon Fiber for ultra-lightweight stability and Maximum Carbon Fiber Content (MCFC) pre-preg material.

The IV has a full-length 3D printed Black/Silver gradient cosmetic to compliment the gold decal. It will be available in weight ranges from 56 to 77 grams (569, 661, 757) and in flexes starting at SR (R2) up to X.

Miura Debuts ICL-601 Driving Iron

SCOTTSDALE, AZ. – Miura has introduced the ICL-601 driving iron. This Inner Cavity – Long Iron is the latest in Miura’s MG Collection, and blends seamlessly with a set of any Miura irons. The initial offering is a 23° 4-iron, with an 18° 2-iron and 20° 3-iron available later this fall.

Shinei Miura has optimized the center of gravity by use of the variable weighting system, particularly addressing the mishits typically associated with a long iron,” says Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf, A top line which instills confidence is paired with a sole design which delivers solid turf interaction, no matter the lie.”

The 23° ICL-601 includes an 8-gram weight, matching its weight to a standard 4-iron’s. This allows the club to be assembled with the same shaft as your iron set or to be fitted with an optimum-performing shaft. As with other forged irons, the lie and loft angles are adjustable – enabling golfers to fit the club seamlessly into their set. Of course, we recommend these adjustments be done by an authorized Miura dealer. All ICL-601 irons have a weight port.

At address, the sole shape lets the clubhead sit in a way that gives golfers confidence notcusually found when hitting a long iron. The clubhead’s inner cavity allows for a wider sole and lower center of gravity. With a larger sweet spot comes more forgiveness, high launch, and controlled spin rates that will benefit golfers of all skill levels.
