Leading golf shaft manufacturer Fujikura Golf have launched their new shafts for 2011, including the high performance Blur shaft using TeXtreme Spread Tow Fabrics from Oxeon..
We are excited to present another completely new high performance product featuring TeXtreme. This new application further broadens our range of products in the Sports & Leisure segment. In the process of developing an optimized carbon reinforcement for the Blur Shaft we have worked closely with Fujikura and used different constructions of TeXtreme says Andreas Martsman, Vice President at Oxeon.
Blur stands for ""Beyond Light, Ultra-Responsive"". The lightweight, higher balance-point shaft is designed to accelerate faster and generate greater swing speeds without compromising the solid and controllable feel typically absent in lightweight shafts.
