Review: EnZo Golf Shafts
Condiments are included on some of our favorite foods. It just seems wrong to eat a cheeseburger without ketchup and/or mustard. They just make it taste better. The shafts I tried from EnZo serve as excellent condiments for a driver, they just make it better. Interestingly enough, they are the colors of ketchup and mustard.
EnZo is a relatively new shaft company that has found success on the LD circuit. Since their beginning in 2008, they have made high-quality, filament wound shafts at prices that fit almost any budget. They use what they call: DrivEn Zone Technology to create shafts that the everyday golfer should be able to use. The EnZo 50, 60 and 70 are their driver shafts. While each one is a different weight, they also have different bend profiles. I i-mixed the EnZo zone 60 (ketchup) and the EnZo zone 70 (mustard). While the colors are on the bold side, the shafts logos are on the simple side with a black oval logo in the middle. Each shaft comes with a butt label indicating raw weight and CPMs.
I started with the EnZo zone 60. It had a decent amount of waggle to it. I found the tip to be on the softer side. It produced a rather high flight. While it was high, it didn’t balloon. It was high and strong with a mid to low spin. I got some good roll, a few yard on each drive. I got great carry out of this shaft, but I sometimes struggle with soft tipped shafts when it comes to accuracy. It was not wild by any means, but my swing flaws show through more with the softer tip. Based on the CPMs and feel it played right on for flex. Now I typically don’t compare shafts to each other, but at the same time I constantly read comments about finding a poor man’s this or that. I would most compare this to a Fubuki. It is very smooth, and kicks like a mule. While it is labeled as a 60, it comes in raw at 69grams.
The EnZo zone 70 is a different animal all together. It is much stiffer in the tip. It produces a much lower ball flight and was low spin. This one I got yards and yards of fairway roll. This one too is very smooth and kicks like a mule. I found this shaft to be very accurate and tight. This one came in raw at 75 grams. This one also played very true to flex. Again if you want to compare it to something well known, I would say this is a poor man’s Diamana Whiteboard.
Now just because they are a poor man’s Fubuki or Whiteboard, that doesn’t mean they are cheaply made or lacking quality. Quite the opposite, I was actually very impressed with the quality of these shafts. You can put them up against just about any high-dollar shaft and they will compete if not beat the competition. While they don’t have multiple weight options in each bend profile, the options they offer I think will fit a large percentage of the golfing population.
Many club fitters can order this line or you can order it for yourself from a number of different golf shops online. You won’t find these at your local big-box store, but then again, those aren’t really the best places to have club work done anyways. (You also can find out more information here, since they are a sponsor on this site)
EnZo’s line is bold and bright like condiments, and just like condiments, they make your driver better. (Their next shaft needs to be green so you can have Ketchup, Mustard or Pickles for your driver.) You will have a hard time finding better shafts at a better price.
