Fujikura Ventus Blue 5 Vs Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 Comparison
Today we examine the performance/feel differences between the Fujikura Ventus Blue 5 and Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 shafts.
Fujikura Ventus Blue 5 Shaft Overview
“The Fujikura Ventus Blue 5 comes in R2 (58g), regular (58.5g) and stiff (59g) flex.”
Compared to the Fujikura Ventus Blue 6, the Fujikura Ventus Blue 5 had a lower kick point which produced steeper launch angles for me.
With the Blue 5, I was averaging launch angles of 16.2°. But the transition was smooth.
While the bend point was low and noticeable, it wasn’t abrupt. Instead, I could feel the energy transfer smoothly through the shaft and through the ball.
But the high launch did produce wider-than-typical dispersion for me: 15.7 yards off-line divergence on average.
Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 Shaft Overview
“The Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 comes in regular (65g), stiff (65g), extra stiff (65g) and tour extra stiff (68.5g) flex.”
The Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 maintains a stiff tip section with a kick point that is slightly higher than the Blue 5.
My launch was a bit more controlled at an average of 14.5° so I was picking up some extra carry and rollout distance.
The Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 had the same smooth feel through transition with a kick point that I am more accustomed to.
My dispersion was tighter and I felt like I could load up on the Blue 6 just a bit more than I could with the Blue 5.
“The Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 was definitely the better shaft for me. But I have a fast-ish swing and I can easily see how the Fujikura Ventus Blue 5 would be more beneficial for slower swingers.
The Fujikura Ventus Blue 5 provides a bit more acceleration through the ball and will help you put serious air under it.”
