OBAN Isawa GLD Shafts – Performance and Elegance

April 28th, 2022

The OBAN Isawa GLD shafts are designed for players seeking performance and elegance in their game!  These shafts are perfect for golfers seeking improved performance in their drivers and fairway woods. Design The OBAN Isawa GLD shafts are designed to provide elite club fitters the opportunity to build consistent performing shafts across different weight and flex categories.  A lot of manufacturers have distinctly different profiles for shafts in different weight categories.  This makes it difficult to fit say a driver and fairway woods in the same shaft, but different weights.  In addition, the proprietary carbon fiber used in these shafts gives a unique feel in the butt section.  Our testing puts this shaft in the mid-launch category with mid-spin. Models Available Model                              Flexes                         Weight           Trajectory      Spin Isawa GLD 50             03 (R), 04 (S)                 58-59gr               Mid              Mid Isawa GLD 60            03...

Best Fairway Woods 2022 and Our Shaft Recommendations

March 29th, 2022

  The Best fairway woods 2022 edition, continues to see performance improvements in both distance (ball speed, spin) and accuracy. The performance improvements we are seeing in fairway woods continue to show from almost every manufacturer.  More distance, lower spin and more accuracy!  Manufacturers are really upping their game not only with new materials, but new designs that are giving golfers more choices in lofts and head size.  Whether you use your fairway woods mostly off the tee or love the Callaway Heaven Wood (7 wood), we will help you pick some of the best heads and shafts. Getting the RIGHT Shaft As usual, from our perspective, the proper shaft in your fairway woods makes ALL the difference in consistency, accuracy and distance!   If you are struggling with your fairway woods, Read This Blog First! Schedule Your Fitting to find the RIGHT Shaft for YOUR Fairway Woods! The short answer in fitting fairway wood shafts is to choose a shaft that has a little more weight than your driver, and has a slightly softer tip section to help get the ball in the air.  How We Categorized The Best We picked four categories for the Best Fairways for 2022...

Fujikura Ventus Shaft Review

March 11th, 2022

  Fujikura recently rounded out their Ventus shaft line with the Ventus Red and Ventus Black.  The original Ventus Blue was designed to be  mid to low-mid  launch shaft.  The Ventus Red (mid-high) and Ventus Black (low) are leveraging the VeloCore Technology to offer the same tight dispersion and improved distance with different ball flight patterns.  And the new Ventus TR is a gamechanger for players liking a bit more feel. Schedule your Driver or Wood Fitting Here! Design Features If we do a quick overview of this shaft, we see that the use of heavier pre-preg material and a fast taper design allowed the Fujikura engineers to create a shaft with faster tip speed (H.I.T. – High Inertia Tip) and VELOCORE Technology.   In our testing, shafts with this technology can create as high as 8 mph faster tip speed!   Ventus Red The highest launching of the Ventus models also offers the lightest shaft weights.  Starting at 58 grams in an R2 (A+) flex, the shafts are also available up through 72 gram X flex.  This makes the Ventus Red not only a good shaft for a driver, but a higher launching fairway wood. Ventus Blue This shaft is right... Read More
