The Project X IO was released in 2020 with the Project X LS and shares the new True Temper look of a matte brushed chrome finish. It is in the same weight range as the discontinued Project X PXi but has a different EI profile. It is lighter and has a low tip to butt stiffness ratio to promote a higher launch.

Project X LS Golf Iron Shaft Review

Project X LS Iron Shaft Review

The True Temper Project X LS released in 2020 has the look of the original Royal Precision Project X, it is stepless and it has a brushed finish. This is the first steel shaft I can recall from TrueTemper with a brushed finish. Unlike chrome, a brushed finish is matte, dispersing reflections. it is a great looking shaft made to very high quality and consistency standards. Lets take a close look at it and compare the LS version to the Project X.

TrueTemper EvenFlow Riptide Driver Shaft Review

TrueTemper EvenFlow Drive Shaft Review

There are two models of the 2020 EvenFlow Riptide driver shaft from TrueTemper. One is noted CB for counter balanced. As I have seen many times, counter balancing has more effect on the shaft profile that it will have on the balance of a driver. Lets take a look at the profiles of the two models.

Project X HZRDUS Smoke Green Golf Shaft Review

Project X HZRDUS Smoke Green Golf Shaft Review

The HZRDUS Smoke Green is the third design in the Smoke series. With the HZRDUS Smoke Black and the HZRDUS Smoke Yellow, it completes a fitting set. The HZRDUS Smoke Green is the first shaft from TrueTemper to use a new material, Hexcel’s HexTow HN63. It is lighter yet stiffer than previous material.

When I first wrote this review I did not notice that some of the shafts were marked with a very small TX below the stiffness number. This caused some confusion that resolved when the non TX 6,5 shafts arrived.

The TX versions are different EI profiles. They have much firmer midlsections.

Project X HZRDUS Smoke Yellow Driver Shaft Review

Project X HZRDUS Smoke Yellow Shaft Review

Looking at the EI profile of the Project X HZRDUS Smoke Yellow is like meeting an old friend you have not seen in a while. It is in many ways an updated of the Project X Loading Zone shaft. For the right golfer it added ball flight height without adding spin. It was a great fit for negative angle of attacks, a long time issue with my own swing. I was sorry to see it get discontuned, and I am quite happy to see the HZRDUS Smoke Yellow replace the most popular of the various profiles that were in the Loading Zone matrix.

the HZRDUS Smoke Yellow is not a remake of the HZRDUS Yellow, they are different.
