Fujikura Pro 2.0 Now Available at Hodson Golf

We are excited to get the new Pro Series 2.0 from Fujikura. We have done incredibly well over the years with the original Fujikura Pro lineup which featured a great array of quality performance shafts at more affordable pricing than most of the higher-end Japanese shaft offerings. This new line will feature several shafts geared towards reaching that optimal “high launch, low spin” characteristics found only in the higher priced, higher pre-preg tonnage shafts that are really only produced in Japan. Here is some additional info from Fuji.

The PRO Series is Fujikura’s most popular, playable and easy-to-fit line of performance shafts. New for 2018, using proprietary enso® technology, the PRO 2.0 features a lower loading section to increase launch, lower torque to reduce spin and a bold, modernized design to turn heads. It’s ideal for golfers of all skill levels, and available in Tour Spec for more aggressive swing tempos to deliver lower ball flight and spin

About Andrew Hodson

I am the youngest with in a golfing family which has spanned three generations. My grandfather started the tradition in England (Bert Hodson-1931 Ryder Cup Team) and has since passed on his knowledge and love of the game. Although I did not follow in the steps of my father and grandfather on a professional golfing level, my love of the game and commitment to accurately fit equipment has only grown. Even as a kid I enjoyed re-gripping clubs which eventually led to refinishing wood heads, re-shafting, and now has culminated in more detailed custom club fitting, building, and repair.

2018 Hot List Released – We couldn’t agree more!

As all you gearheads know,  the 2018 Hot List has been released – and we couldn’t agree more. As all of our loyal customers know, when you come for a fitting at Hodson Golf we give you an honest unbiased fitting and we do not push any particular brand or product. During your fitting here at Hodson Golf we simply compare the various brand/head/shaft combinations (based on your determined individual specifications) and let the numbers (doppler radar launch monitor) speak for themselves. In going over our sale data, our equipment sales tie almost directly into the best/gold clubs in each category.

Hodson Golf now carrying/fitting for………….Taylor Made (Finally!)

For all of our long time customers, you all know my past dissatisfaction with Taylor Made. Up until recently Taylor Made was focused more on their bottom line with their primary focus on Quantity vs Quality. Although we have always had an account with Taylor Made I simply refused to carry their lineup because I was never confident in the quality of their product and knew it was just a matter of time (usually a couple of months) before they churned out yet another driver. Well TM was bought last year by a private equity group which has an extensive background in manufacturing, and has finally changed the mindset of the brand to quality vs quantity.  Already there have been significant changes to the manufacturing and processing of their new equipment with even more exciting changes due in the coming months. TM has also kicked up its R+D spending which is evident in the new “twist face” technology which is going to be a game changer (I honestly can’t believe the industry hasn’t embraced this design until now). It is refreshing to see this company getting back to its roots by catering to the green grass accounts vs its former business model of focusing primarily to the “Big Box” accounts.  We will keep everyone up to speed regarding the exciting changes in store and we are excited to be hosting several fitting events in the coming months.
