The Fujikura Blur has been hailed the Fastest Shaft in Golf and is catching fire in popularity for both tour and recreational players. There is no doubt Fujikura is capitalizing on another fine addition to their glowing line of shafts.
The new Fujikura Blur was first introduced at the Players Championship in May of 2010 and was met with accolades, especially Ricky Barnes and Alex Cjeka.
Fujikura is definitely putting the Blur front and center as their lightweight flagship.
The Blur is a super lightweight shaft that utilizes the proprietary VEXX Carbon Interweave to its fullest. Now the VEXX is certainly at the forefront of the shaft itself being the most innovative construction of the light-weight and ultra thin carbon tapes woven together.
Optimal stiffness and feel are the primary benefits of the VEXX technology. This is because carbon interweave technology places more carbon fibers in the direction of the shaft loading. The end result is a stronger, stiffer, and more responsive shaft. Another anomaly, albeit a positive one, is the fact that the Blur is a mid launch, mid spin, with a mid bend point shaft, something rarely seen in this weight class.
"It's the lightest weave we've ever encountered by far, the VEXX woven-fabric lends itself to a lighter weight but also has the feel, torque and stiffness properties associated with a heavier shaft." According to Fujikura President and COO Dave Schnider
