Plugged-In Golf Fujikura Motore Speeder 757 Review
50 Words or Less
Fujikura brings back a legend the right way. Classic design with modern materials make this shaft an absolute beast. Easily one of the best of 2013.
There aren’t too many golf shafts that reach “Legendary” status, but the original Speeder 757 is definitely among them. Born in 1997, it’s compiled over 50 worldwide wins and won the loyalty of many golfers.
This fall, Fujikura is releasing an updated Speeder 757, along with three other Speeder profiles. While these new shafts retain the classic Speeder designs, they incorporate the technological improvements of the last 20 years. The question is, can Fujikura improve on a legend?
If you remember the smooth loading and tip stability of the original 757, this shaft will have you walking down memory lane. All of the “action” in this shaft feels like it happens in the mid and butt sections: there’s an easy load at the top and a solid kick through the ball. You get all this feeling without any wiggling or torqueing in the tip.
A more modern comparison could be drawn to Fujikura’s Fuel. The Motore Speeder 757 feels similar to the Fuel in that there’s a good kick with superior tip stability, but the Speeder is much, much smoother.
The look of the Motore Speeder 757 is an updated homage to the original. While the dark grey base color has been replaced with white, the dozens of tiny “Speeder” logos remain. The primary logo is a dark cherry red that really pops.
The coolest visual element of this shaft is the large, grey “Speeder” logo that hides under all of the smaller logos. It was hiding in plain sight until I set the club at address the first time, then it jumped out at me.
I hate to say this, I really do, because I know that as soon as I type these words the Golf Gods will smite me. But here it goes: I’ve never driven the ball better in my entire life.
The Fujikura Motore Speeder 757 is simply a perfect fit for me. I love the feel and that love has translated into insane performance. I’ve had two of the best driving rounds of my life recently, both in terms of length and accuracy. I started hitting driver on holes that didn’t need, or want, driver, just because I could. My only concern has been whether or not I’m going to run out of fairway.
When I took the Speeder to the launch monitor, I saw more of what I’d seen on the course: tight draws that launch high and run forever. My averages were 13* of launch with approximately 2400 RPMs. The only way those numbers get better is on XBox.
In my opinion, no shaft company has been as good as Fujikura this year. They kicked off the year with the Fuel, a mid-priced shaft that everyone loves. From a promotions standpoint, their limited edition majors shafts were a hit. Now, they’re closing 2013 in style with the release of the new Motore Speeder 757, a rare re-release that honors and improves on the original.

“I’ve had the pleasure of playing golf since I was little. It has turned into my passion and what I live for. Now, I am playing golf at a division I college, and I wouldn’t think of playing anything but Fujikura in my woods. When I was younger, my “grail” was an r7 driver with a Fujikura Speeder 757 S shaft. It was that shaft that made me really appreciate all of the technical aspects of golf because it was custom fit for me. I knew I was not leaving anything on the table when it came to distance and accuracy. Now, Fujikura is on the verge of bringing back the Speeder shafts with an updated look and tons of technology included. I am currently playing that new Motore Speeder 661 TX shaft in my SLDR driver. Nothing can touch it. Everyone on my team always wants to hit my driver. The term “butter” often comes up in our conversations regarding my driver. I don’t think I’ll be changing any time soon… unless of course Fujikura has another breakthrough—which is an everyday occurrence there in Vista, CA.”

MCI iron shafts
“The MCI shaft is in my 6 iron. Thank you for the opportunity to test it! On a recent PGA Ambassador golf trip to Streamsong Resort, I put it into play and the the results were remarkable.
I chose the 120 gram shaft and I love it. It replaced my Dynamic Gold s300 and the ball flight is much more consistent. The shots feel more solid. It is very workable. I tend to hook the ball due to an occasional swing error, but this shaft really hits it straighter for me. I can flight the ball down if I wish and hit my fade on command with no effort. A memorable, near-hole-in-one shot on my trip was with my six iron on a par 3, playing 175yards, downhill, but into a one-club wind. I was very pleased with the penetrating ball flight and can trust this shaft not to balloon upwards, into a heavy face wind. My rounds of golf were 76,79,74, and 77. The wind was ripping every day and I used my six iron frequently, for shots from 165-180 yards.
Thank you for making it possible for me to experience this shaft in my six iron. I have many more golf events scheduled for this summer. I am eager to see how this shaft performs for me in the long iron category as well as the short iron category.”

MCI iron shafts
“Fujikura Golf is the best shaft company out there! Period! As a professional golfer, traveling the world playing, you need your equipment to preform at the highest level and Fujikura has created the product that out preforms their competition. I was privileged enough to be invited into the Fujikura Headquarters in Vista CA to be fitted by the team of John Hovis, Kellen Tallada and Marshall Thompson. I was very excited and honored to be invited into hq, I was treated as a family member would be, it was an unbelievable day. I left with a ton of knowledge about my own game, the proper shafts for my game and the technologies of shaft designing, creating and fitting. Fujikura has truly taken shaft fitting and design to another level. We confirmed that the Fujikura Speeder Tour Spec 6.2X was the perfect driver shaft for me. PGA Tour players always talk about how the a 3 wood is the hardest club to find in your bag, I left with mine! We fit me into a Fujikura Speeder 7.0X, I can control the ball better, more consistently and absolutely let it rip! I can’t wait to have this club in my bag for a long time. Fujikura has a shaft for every golfer out there. I want to thank everyone involved with creating such an amazing product. If you don’t have a Fujikura shafts in your clubs, your not preforming to your optimal level.”
