Fujikura shafts capture series of professional Tour successes

VISTA, Calif. -- Another great week for Fujikura has gone down in the books. Several new players recently switched to our shafts on the PGA tour-One of which has opted to play the Motore Speeder VC Tour Spec 7.2 X flex shaft in his Callaway driver and managed to secure his first two top-10 finishes of the season. Fujikura was also the number one shaft on the Champions Tour in number of shafts in play.

This just marks another week for Fujikura being the shaft of choice for the four longest hitters on the PGA Tour. This has been a trend in the past several weeks, as the four players duke it out on the course to be longest in driving distance each week. Though the position of the players fluctuates at the top of the "Distance Leaderboard" the one thing they have in common is a Fujikura shaft in their driver.

"We're excited that we've been able to have these four guys maintain their positions as the longest drivers on tour with our products," says John Hovis, Pro Tour Rep & Fit On Studio Manager. "Though they've been at the top before, it's the fact that they continue to be the longest week-in and week-out that makes it so unique."

About the Winning Shafts
The Motore Speeder Series shafts feature Fujikura's proprietary and proven H.I.T. which stores more energy during the downswing and releases the energy just before impact, while maintaining the stability of the entire club. The result is greater distance and accuracy in all clubs. Motore's "smart" shaping of the tip enables these benefits while minimizing weight, allowing the tip end to accelerate faster than conventional tips.

FUEL can be defined as material with stored energy that can later be used to generate power. Just like a high performance engine that burns high-octane fuel for more horsepower and torque, your shaft can perform the same way - using advanced technology as its fuel. With FUEL, you can see where your energy is coming from through our proprietary FUEL ROD TECHNOLOGY, created with a COMBUSTION CHAMBER and LOAD INJECTOR TIP. FUEL uniquely utilizes this technology to generate greater distance and accuracy on a more consistent basis. With this shaft, your power is on display for everyone to see.
