Project X VRTX Red and Blue Golf Shaft Review

The True Temper VRTX is a Performance Fitting Center Exclusive Product. In 2019 True Sports, the parent company of True Temper acquired the Ontario based PGMC group which included the Accra brand of golf shafts. PGMC is a distribution company that services the golf club building and fitting community. This acquisition gave True Sports a first class organization to handle sales, service and training for its golf products which include the True Temper and Project X brands. PGMC also handles other True Sports acquisitions, ACCRA, AeroTech and Grafalloy.  I graduated from the Performance Fitting Center adding it to the 9 other certifications I can recall.

The Project X VRTX driver shafts are sold only to PFC club builder / fitters. The VRTX Red is available in 40 to 60 gram models. The VRTX is available in the more traditional 50 to 70 gram range.

The TrueTemper Evenflow Riptide LX is the second of two Riptide X series driver shafts released in late 2021.They contain ultra low modulus prepreg in the tip section. Both the LX and the MX have lower torque that earlier Riptide models which starts in the tip and continues up the shaft. We generally see lower torque tightening dispersion while at the same time created a feel of increased stiffness. In the Riptide X series, feel

There was a sense of familiarity as the first EI Flex Distribution Graph formed as I measured the Riptide MX. I have seen this profile before, in fact it is an archetypical design. Successful on tour after a very, very long time, the profile is available from several shaft companies.

Graphite Design Tour AD UB Shaft Review

Graphite Design Tour AD UB Driver Shaft Review

The Graphite Design Tour AD UB is the second shaft from Graphite Design to use Torayca ® M40X pre-preg. Torayca ® M40X has both high strength and does not deform when loaded. Tensile Modulus is the mechanical property the relates force to deformation. The material in the UB does not elongate when loaded. In a golf shaft, the energy applied is not lost to elongation. It is stored in the shaft and theoretically is released at impact resulting in higher ball speeds.

High Balance and Low Balance designs compliment the ACCRA Tour Z shaft, released in 2017. High modulus. low resin prepreg results in low wall thickness, enhancing feedback. Uniform taper provides maximum energy transfer down the shaft. A woven prepreg from Toray runs down the length of the shaft, resulting in a uniform torque profile down the shaft. ACCRA tells us this creates the lowest resin to fiber ratio of any shaft they have ever designed. The shafts are made in a Japanese and the quality and conformity across weights and flex designations is as good as I have seen. Lets explore the EI Profile flex distribution of these shafts and look at how the movement of balance point changes a shaft.
