I'm considering one in my TSi3 driver and my TSi2 3W. The Velocore model, not the cheap "made-for" non-Velocore some manufacturers are using in their stock offerings. That's a totally different animal.
I have read and heard so much positive feedback about them, as well as a small bit of negative too. (A Fuji Ventus shaft isn't right for everyone, nor is any other shaft.) As I've said in other posts, I am a tinkerer. I like trying stuff. What I like will stick around. What I don't is usually found on Ebay within a month of original purchase. I may lose a few bucks at times, but it's worth it to be able to give it a real tryout over an extended period.
Shaft fittings are fine, but I like to try stuff outdoors on the golf course in real world situations to decide what works well for me. I don't care as much about what a launch monitor says as I do about what reality shows and feels to me. A few swings on a launch monitor is nice, and can be helpful, but many swings over a span of 5 or 10 rounds out on the course tells me so much more.
I'm very curious to hear from those playing any Ventus w/Velocore in the TS or TSi line. Which one (weight, flex/model/club) and what are your impressions? I'm looking at Blue or Red, but not sure about flex yet. (I play Tensei AV Raw Blue in my Driver and Hybrid and a Diamana Blue 70 in my 3W as my primary shafts, but I have a bunch of others I swap in and out too when my swing or my mood feels the desire). What is your swingspeed, how drastic is your transition, what type of ball flight/trajectory are you seeing, etc. Is it as smooth as they say and does the tip feel as stiff as its numbers would suggest?
Your experiences would be appreciated.
