#1 Pick

Fujikura Ventus Blue

The ventus line from Fujikura has been by far the most popular hybrid shaft line amongst pros and amateurs alike. The Ventus Blue Hybrid shaft offers amazing stability through it's patented Velocore technology.

The blue profile will fit the widest array of swing types by offering mid to high launch depending on the weight and flex you choose. For faster swingers, we recommend the 8X flex for increased stability and for preventing too much spin. While for average swingers we recommend the 7R or 7 S flex. Or if you prioritize distance, opt for the lighter 6R an 6S flex which will provide a higher ball flight and increased swing speed.

How heavy should a hybrid shaft be?

Hybrid shafts will typically be your heaviest wood shaft. This is because hybrids are designed for accuracy and higher launch than drivers and fairway woods. For most players, 70-85 grams will be an ideal weight for a hybrid shaft. On the lighter side, hybrid shafts will be between 60-80 grams. These are designed for slower swing speeds needing more help to generate club head speed and height. 80-100 gram weights are typically best suited for faster swing speeds or those who prefer a more controlled trajectory.

What length should a hybrid shaft be?

Hybrid shaft lengths vary depending on the loft and model of the hybrid. As a general rule of thumb here are the average lengths of various lofted hybrids:

  • 2-Hybrid (17-18*): 40.5"
  • 3-Hybrid (20-22*): 40"
  • 4-Hybrid (23-25*): 39.5"
  • 5-Hybrid (26-28*): 39"
