Fujikura Ventus Blue: Full Review and Who Should Use It
What Are The Ventus Blue Features?
As with all Fairway Jockey shafts, a number of potential customization options are available online during the ordering process. The Fujikura Ventus Blue shaft offers the following options:

How Does The Fujikura Ventus Blue Perform
The Ventus Blue Shaft is the first of Fujikura’s products to feature their recent VeloCore technology advancements, which includes a multi-material design, created to provide stability through both transition and impact. This offers a greater sense of control without sacrificing center-face impact, which is why newer golfers tend to enjoy it as a ‘best of both worlds’ option.
The Fujikura Ventus Blue also has a straight taper design which contributes to both loading and feel, as well as a tip section with maximum energy transfer. This shaft was designed to provide both a tightened shot dispersion and maximum ball speeds -- even on off-center shots. This gives fairly new golfers an upper hand in their game, where they don’t have to sacrifice speed for stability and control. It is a mid-launch, low-spin shaft.

Some of the most notable players to use the Fujikura Ventus Shaft in past seasons include:

What’s the Different Between Ventus Blue and Red
Whereas you can’t go wrong with the Ventus Blue, many people wonder what the difference is between theVentus Blue Shaft and Ventus Red Shaft. The Ventus Red Shaft is designed to achieve a slightly higher launch and spin rate than the Blue which is designed for a mid launch. Many pro’s such as Adam Scott do enjoy using the Red from time to time in order to take advantage of its higher launch rate.
