The Project X HZRDUS Smoke is the fifth profile released under the HZRDUS brand. It is unique from the other four designs. The HZRDUS Smoke will be a stock shaft in at least one of the 2019 big brand drivers. Lets take a close look at its profile.

The Project X EvenFlow driver shaft line has a fourth model, the T1100 White. The T1100 designation has been used in the past in the HZRDUS line. It designates a low launch, low spin design.The HZRDUS T1100 is a very different profile as we will see later in the article.

Graphite Design MAD Driver Shaft Review

Graphite Design MAD Driver Shaft Review

By Russ Ryden, Fit2Score, A Dallas Fort Worth Club Fitter & Club Maker

I have recently been reviewing driver shafts in the $350 to $750 range. I was interested to see how a $180 shaft compared to the $380 Tour AD IZ also recently released. From a profile perspective these are two entirely different designs. However this search lead me to the Graphite Design YS-Six Reloaded, a $100 shaft that from a profile perspective a dead match to the IZ. An interesting find! Back to the Maximum Accuracy and Distance, while there is not a close match from Graphite Design, the profile is very popular and successful for many.

Let’s hear Bill McPherson describe the Maximum Accuracy and Distance shaft at the 2018 PGA merchandise show. The MAD discussion starts at the 5:00 mark in the video.

The Graphite Design Tour AD VR driver shaft released in late 2018. Like the Tour AD IZ and the Tour AD TP its construction includes TORAYCA T1100G carbon fiber pre-preg with NANOALLOY technology in the tip section. it is quite similar to these two shafts until we get to the tip section. There it is a combination of those two designs.

TPT Golf Driver Shaft Review

TPT Golf Drive Shaft Review

TPT Golf is a division of a Swiss technology and composite firm that developed carbon fiber materials. They have produced America’s Cup yacht sails, lightweight racing car bodies, skis, snowboards, watch bodies, aircraft parts and satellite parts. They offered their prepreg to shaft companies and was told it was too expensive. Their only choice to enter the golf market was to make their own shafts. Their ultra premium shafts quickly appeared in the bags of several marque PGA players.

Thin Ply Technology (TPT) shafts have double the layers of material found in typical ultra premium shafts. Prepreg tapes are wrapped on the mandrel on CNC winders. Most other shafts are hand rolled, much like cigars. TPT makes the prepreg ribbon and can orientate the fiber direction in the ribbon. That creates a uniquely new method of creating golf shafts. They can adjust shaft properties in unique ways to adjust shaft performance. I have been to the Swiss R&D site demonstrating the process of EI measurement with my instrument and software.

This video was shot on the closing afternoon of the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show. Jeff Meyer, one of the top shaft designers in the business explains some of the TPT technology.

Let’s take a look at the Low Kick Point and Mid Kick Point profiles.
