(Vista, CA – March 25, 2013) –

Fujikura shafts continue to dominate the tour with wins and most number of shafts in play. According to the Darrell Survey, Fujikura also won the Driver, Hybrid, and Wood’s Count this past week on the Champions Tour. The Speeder earned the reputation of the “winningest shaft on tour” back in 2000 and hasn’t lost momentum since.

Fujikura’s new FUEL shaft won the very first PGA Tour event of the year and has not looked back since. After being named, “the most talked about shaft at the 2013 PGA Merchandising Show”, the FUEL has continued to dominate the buzz surrounding the hottest new products for 2013. Fujikura recently announced a very limited edition (numbered to 125) FUEL shaft in green and yellow as a loyalty program for their dealers and this shaft sold-out in less than one hour.

Stephanie Hartgraves, Fujikura’s Marketing Manager, commented on the FUEL shaft’s success by saying, “We are honored and extremely thrilled to hear and see all the excitement that the FUEL shaft is creating on the Tour of course, but all the after-market buzz is very rewarding because it is organic and it is the masses. The FUEL feedback and reviews so far have been far better than we even expected, so we hope to make it a great year for our dealers.” Hartgraves continued by adding, “This is why we decided to make a limited edition “Green and Yellow” shaft for our top dealers…to say “Thank you” for your partnership!”

Fujikura’s Marketing Manager, Stephanie Hartgraves shared that she is always looking out for the fans in addition to the dealers. There will apparently be a handful of promotions with select media partners in the coming weeks where Fujikura fans will have the opportunity to win one of the 125 limited edition “Green and Yellow” Majors Series FUEL shafts.

“The Fujikura Speeder Evolution 757 and 757 Tour Spec will be among the most sought-after shafts for stronger players in 2015. Consistent feel and higher ball speeds make this a solid upgrade from last year’s Speeder 757.”
