Fujikura top driver and wood shaft brand used on Champions Tour

VISTA, Calif. -- Another week of Fujikura on top of the leader board in the golf equipment industry. Fujikura was reported as the #1 driver and wood shaft brand on the Champions Tour for the weekend.

Additionally, in last week's golf business news stories, Fujikura Golf confirmed the re-launch of the popular Speeder757, which is considered to be the most iconic and sought after shaft in shaft brand history. Speeder quickly became the #1 shaft brand on the PGA Tour and has never left the tour since it's debut in 1998, earning the nickname, "the winningest shaft on tour" for well over a decade.

Fujikura marketing manager, Stephanie Hartgraves confirmed that the shaft will be available at Fujikura Charter Dealers in October and that the MSRP will be $400. She also gave a statement regarding what players can expect from the new Speeder's performance. "The new Motore Speeder757 (and other 3 profiles available) makes more use of our proprietary Triax Core technology. Essentially, we have been able to re-engineer the structure to use stronger materials, which allows for less resin, which has allowed us to incorporate the TCT technology into the inside layer of the shaft, enhancing the effects. How does this translate into real benefits for the golfer you ask? Unparalleled SPEED, DISTANCE and STABILITY." Hartgraves confirmed that the use of the term 'Unparalleled' is of significance because the new Motore Speeder757 consumer (player) testing results showed greater distances than leading competitor shafts in 100% of the participants.

Fujikura will be opening up pre-orders to their network of authorized dealers (Fujikura Charter Dealers) on September 1st and the new shafts are expected to be available for sale October 1st. MSRP is $400.
