Project X HZDRUS Yellow Golf Shaft Review

Project X HZRDUS Yellow Driver Shaft

The Project X HZRDUS Yellow is the third driver shaft in the Hand Crafted family from True Temper. It has a notably soft midsection. This is much like the first in the series, the Project X Loading Zone reviewed earlier. The bend profile is much like the profiles of the 70 gram versions of the Project X Loading Zone model. The soft zones of those shafts moved with weight and flex. I have fit a number of players into the 50 and 60 gram versions of the Loading Zone. Therefore, another shaft with that design grabbed my attention.

I had a chance just recently to test it during a fitting with a single digit handicap player that showed up with a 6 year old driver and a 103 mph golf swing. Working with the Yellow HZRDUS and a TaylorMade M1 we added 2 mph to his swing speed, 3 mph to his ball speed, dropped his spin 800 rpm all of which added 17 yards to his drives. His playing buddies are in for a surprise.

    Hi Russ,

    Thank you for all you reviews.

    According to True temper the Project x Yellow is a backweighted shaft.

    But from you measure the shaft is more like low balance point shaft (-2, even lower then black).

    Do I get it wrong?

    How should I read the balance point numbers?

    Thank you

    • You did not get it wrong, I did. I redid the numbers on the shafts that were not yet cut and removed them from those that I cannot remeasure.
      Thanks for being so observant.

    The chart is not working for this shaft. Can you fix the broken link? Also, any plans to test the red? I think it would be a fantastic fairway wood shaft!

    • I reloaded it, it looks ok on my computer. Let me know if it is working on yours.
