FUJIKURA SPEEDER SLK WOOD SHAFTS
New for 2019, the Speeder SLK is designed as a short-length shaft at 45 inches to maximize the performance when assembled at 44 inches. Short-length shafts have potential to increase smash factor and playability and are trending in popularity among pros on the PGA Tour. This latest innovative profile utilizes Metal Composite Technology to maintain swingweights for short-length builds. Speeder SLK is available in 50 & 60 gram weights for golfers seeking more smash factor and playability at a shorter length.
Fujikura's proprietary Metal Composite Technology allows us to add additional weight to the shaft tip without increasing its stiffness or affecting the club's balance point at a shorter length.
Multi Hoop Plied Structure
Multi-hoop plied structure - Laminate hoop layers are strategically placed on the shaft butt for more kick speed and higher launch.
Why does SLK swing weigh the same at 44inch as a "normal" shaft at 45inch?
SLK uses Metal tubing (Metal composite technology) in the tip section of the shaft in order to lower the balance point of the shaft, hence being able to maintain swingweight without having to add additional weight such as ugly lead tape.
What are the benefits?
- Tighter shot dispersion
- The stability of a larger head is improved dramatically
- More centre hits, making average distance longer
What golfers will benefit?
The majority of golfers from ladies through to single handicap players who have trouble with directional control of the longer length drivers without compromising distance.
Why Speeder SLK?
We have found with many amateur golfers it helps to increase arm speed and in effect club head speed, this is a result of more room through impact and less flatter swing plane compared to longer drivers. Also the shorter length gives more confidence to players just by the hands being closer to the club head, and gives more punch.
