Fujikura Banzai shaft?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I recently had my driver re-shafted at my local club, and it now has a Fujikura Banzai shaft on it. I did some research on this shaft and it appears it was made for FW/Hybrids? Is it okay to use this shaft in a driver?

Back in 2009, another Sand Trapper put a Banzai shaft in his driver. Said it worked OK. Here's the play-by-play:

A few days ago, someone suggested that FW shafts should be a bit heavier than the longer driver shaft for something to do with swing tempo. Tried to search up the post, but can't find it.

Also, some graphite shafts can be used for either driver or FW. I had the Fuji E360 - R.flex - in my Callaway driver and 3W. It worked OK, but I sometimes had trouble getting the 3W airborne enough, especially on uphill shots. I doubt it was a weight problem however.
