Review: Fujikura Speeder 757 Evolution Shaft

“The Evolution of Distance”
Fujikura is saying “Give your old game the shaft” and asking “How many yards will you gain?” Since the introduction of the Speeder shaft by Fujikura to the market around the early 2000’s it seems like everyone has been trying to repeat the success of a shaft that could be argued as the best ever. Even Fujikura wasn’t satisfied with the best ever, they “Evolved”.
I’d like you to think back to the first time you saw the original Fujikura Speeder 757.  Everyone raved about how awesome the shaft was, but lets be honest, the graphics were kind of boring.  The first update came in cool white graphics, and the Evolution comes in really sharp blue tones with red lettering.  A staple of the 757 shaft is the the smooth load and solid feel when the ball comes off the face with a pop.

The best way to get more distance into your game is to optimize your numbers.  I averaged 20 shots on my old shaft and numbers looked like this:

Flightscope X2 Launch Monitor

  • Old Gamer Shaft
  • Spin: 3024 rpms
  • Launch Angle: 12.0*
  • Ball Speed: 142 mph
  • Total Distance:  256 yds
  • Carry Distance:  235 yds

I know what you are thinking, I should be embarrassed to even show these in public, but wait, there is a reason Fujikura said I should “Give your old game the shaft!” Same Driver and 20 shots averaged with the new Fujikura Speeder 757 Stiff Flex:

  • Fujikura Speeder 757 Evolution
  • Spin: 2607 rpms
  • Launch Angle: 14.8*
  • Ball Speed: 145 mph
  • Total Distance:  271 yds
  • Carry Distance:  246 yds

Remember that question Fujikura was asking us, “How many yards will you gain?” I got 11 yards more carry and 15 yards more total distance just by Evolving my game with the new Speeder Evolution 757. The real test was even better than what I saw on the launch monitor. I took the old driver shaft (or should I say extinct) and the Speeder Evolution 757 outside for a test. During a few practice rounds I hit 10 drives with the old shaft and 10 with the Speeder and using GPS it showed the same results on the course, I picked up 15 more yards.  Fujikura continues to take a great product and make it better.
