What is frequency and how is it measured?
Frequency is measured using our proprietary Fujikura pneumatic frequency machine. We clamp the butt of the shaft with a 200.7 gram weight chuck with a bore depth of 1.25 inches. The shaft is deflected and the number of times the shaft oscillates is your Cycles per Minute. This number correlates to the butt stiffness of the shaft. Frequency testing does not measure the tip stiffness of the shaft.
What is the best shaft for my handicap?
Your handicap does not correlate to how you deliver the head of the club to the ball. Go to one of our Charter dealers in your area and get fit for your swing.
What is the difference between the Motore Speeder and the Fuel?
Motore Speeder and Fuel have different technologies and have difference performance characteristics. Motore Speeder is designed to deliver the clubhead to the ball as fast and efficient as possible. Fuel is designed to store energy during the swing and release the energy at impact for maximum power. Find a Charter Dealer in your area to get fit with the right shaft for you unique swing.
How can I increase distance?
Maximize your ball speed, launch angle and spin rate. Get fit by a professional club fitter with the correct head loft, shaft and club length to your unique swing.
What shafts do the pros use?
Motore Speeder and Fuel are among the leading shafts on all professional tours, according to Darrell Survey. The Fujikura Speeder brand has been the #1 shaft brand consistently used by tour pros for more than a decade and has been attributed to pioneering the custom shaft industry as a whole. The new Motore Speeder 757 (and other three models available) is the newest evolution of the Speeder brand and is producing longer distances than any other shaft on the market currently.
How does the Fuel compare to the Diamana White?
Fuel is more flexible in the mid-section of the shaft yet stable in the tip so the opportunity for more kick speed is available.
What is 7 Axis Technology in the Motore Speeder?
This is combination of Quadra Axis, which is 4 composite yarns woven together in a criss-cross pattern, and Triax, which consists of 3 composite yarns woven together in a honey comb pattern. 7 Axis technology helps to return the head to impact quicker and more efficient for increased distance and accuracy.
How much loft is added due to the bending of the shaft?
It depends how flexible the shaft is. However, from our ENSO data we show that the shaft can add as much as 3 degrees to the loft of a club.
What can the right shaft do for me?
Maximize your distance and accuracy. A player that is properly fit with the correct shaft to his/her unique swing will see superior results.
Are all stiff shafts the same?
No. Fujikura makes stiff shafts that launch low and high plus increase and decrease spin. Flex does not correlate to playing ability. Go to one of our Charter dealers and go get fit correctly.
What are the most important elements in shaft fitting?
Being properly diagnosed and then being prescribed the correct loft, shaft and club length to fit your unique swing.
Should I get a lesson or get fit?

Is it necessary to get fit with a launch monitor?
If you want to achieve optimum performance from your equipment go see one of our Charter Dealers who uses a launch monitor.
Can a longer golf club increase my overall distance?
Not necessarily. You need to check your impact location (dry erase maker works well) and make sure you are fit at the correct length. Hitting the ball toward the heel and low on the face can lower your launch angle about 4 degrees and could slow your swing speed up to 6 miles per hour.
What is Bend profile?
How a shaft when deflected can change in stiffness over the entire length of the shaft.
