True Temper Dynamic Golf 105 Iron Shaft Review

True Temper Dynamic Gold 105 Golf Shaft Review

DG105 ImageAs with the Dynamic Gold 120, True Temper has again responded to the trend for lighter iron shafts with a redesign of the Dynamic Gold. The Dynamic Gold 105 is around 105 grams uncut. When cut it will be in the 100 gram range. The R and S are ever so slightly lighter. In my experience, 105 grams is the fitting sweet spot for the recreational golfer. It is good to see the more companies developing products in this range.

EvenFlowBlueHandCraftedThe Project X EvenFlow, introduced in late 2017 is made in San Diego where the Project X HZRDUS shafts are made. It adds a unique pair of profiles to the Project X HZRDUS shafts that have released over the last few years. It has a softer midsection than the HZRDUS Black, It has a firmer butt section than the HZRDUS Red. It has a firmer mid section than the HZRDUS Yellow. The profile is a popular design and it has a great many close matches from just about every manufacturer in the golf shaft business.

True Temper responded to the trend for lighter iron shafts with a redesign of the Dynamic Gold. The Dynamic Gold 120 is about 10 grams lighter than the classic tour staple Dynamic Gold. It is offered in two versions, the S400 at 118 grams and the X100 at 120 grams. I see very little difference between the classic Dynamic Gold and this new version the Dynamic Gold 120.

Project X Rifle Tapered Iron Shaft Review

Project X Rifle Tapered Iron Shaft

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

The Project X Rifle Golf Shaft was one of the first shafts I studied when I took up club making. I attended a weekend course on its history and how to build matched sets of iron with the parallel shaft. Much of that history is explained in my earlier article about the Project X Rifle Shaft. Parallel shafts have a tip diameter of .370 inches. A set is made by incrementally cutting the shaft tips. Today however, the majority of the iron heads have .355 tapered hosels. That means the club maker must secure the club head and ream the hosel to .370. With forged heads it does not take much effort providing you have a good drill press and a hosel clamp fixture. With cast heads it is much more difficult. The hardness of the cast hosel requires a mill with horse power and in many cases a cooling system to keep from burning the ream. In other words, if you tried this once on a hard casting you probably will refuse to do it again.

True Temper provides a solution. Tapered Project X Rifle shafts with precut tip. The Rifle shaft system gave the club maker the ability to fine tune stiffness by altering the length of the tip cut as he pleased. That can not be done with taper tip shafts. To remedy that problem, the taper Rifle shafts are offered in 10 different lengths for each stiffness. The club maker can hit mid flex targets by selecting shafts from that array of pre trimmed tips.

Rifle Parallel Iron Shaft Review

True Temper Rifle Parallel Iron Shaft Review

TTRifle_LabelTrue Temper reintroduced the Rifle Iron Shaft in 2017. it is a parallel shaft which a True Temper Performance Fitting Certified Club Maker can trim to exacting stiffness. The Rifle shaft has a long history in the golf business and was once a popular shaft on the PGA tour.

Performance Fitting Center Club Makers are educated and trained by True Temper. They are knowledgeable about True Temper’s proprietary technologies and how they can improve each golfer’s game. Performance Fitting Centers offer True Temper’s full line of catalog products in addition to products exclusive to Performance Fitting Centers.

RPRifle_LabelWhen I was new to club making I attended what was then a weekend seminar to become a Rifle Certified Clubmaker. I learned the history of the research done by Dr. Joe Braly. That research pioneered the effort that is ongoing today to find a synergy between the golfer and the golf shaft. Quoting from my Rifle training manual, “The conventional process of determining shaft flex strictly by weight does not recognise a number of other variable that can stand in the way of producing a correctly matched set of clubs.”  I am not certain that we yet fully understand that synergy. But, the research that resulted in the Rifle fitting system was a pioneering step in the history of club fitting. I know a number of golf pros that still speak fondly of their Rifle shafts sets of old.

Lets explore the Rifle fitting process and compare the Royal Precision Rifle to the True Temper Rifle.
