Reader Reviews – Fujikura Shaft Fittings Part 1

Five Happy Golfers

Last month, PluggedInGolf partnered with Fujikura and Club Champion to offer a great opportunity to five readers: get a free tour-caliber fitting for any shaft in the Fujikura line up.  All five of these players have now been fit, and the results are tremendous.

Do It For the Gains!

In our most recent Golf Myths Unplugged, we showed you the gains that can be realized through a fitting.  Did our five participants see similar gains?  YES!

Our five readers gained 9, 15, 16, 29, and 46 yards off the tee.  That’s an average of 23 more yards!

Of equal importance, all five players got more accurate with a Fujikura shaft.  Two players made major gains, cutting their offline average by 20 yards each.  Another was simply showing off.  With his old gamer, he hit the ball approximately 11 yard offline; with a fitted Fujikura shaft his drives landed less than 3 yards from the center line.

The Data

No Two Swings Are the Same

In reviewing all the fitting data, one piece of information caught my eye: no two players were fit into the same shaft.  One golfer was fit into each of the new ATMOS shafts – Red, Blue, and Black.  The other two used the Fujikura Pro Tour Spec and the Pro XLR8, respectively.

As we always emphasize, fitting is critical.  All the shafts in Fujikura’s line up are high quality, but you need the one that matches your swing to see the benefits.

In Their Own Words

Of course, you don’t need to take my word for it.  In the video below, the readers give you their own accounts of the fitting process and the gains they made.

More to Come

In the coming weeks, these five golfers will be receiving their fitted Fujikura shafts to take to the course.  Once they’ve had the chance to get a couple rounds in, they’ll be reporting back on how the Fujikura shafts have changed their game.  Stay tuned!

    That’s awesome! I’ve never been properly fitted for a driver and always wonder if I’m losing yards because of it. I’m one of the guys that owns 5 shafts for their driver and has no clue if any of them are the best for me. I really need to get a quality fitting like this. I can’t wait to see how their new shafts perform on the course.
