Project X launches HZRDUS T1100 shafts

Published

on

Project X’s T1100 is currently one of the hottest shafts on the PGA Tour, as well the newest member of the company’s HZRDUS graphite shaft family — and starting today it’s available at a custom club fitter near year.

Project X’s Don Brown describes the T1100 shaft as “the ultimate spin killer for players with the most aggressive tempo.” The shafts get their name from the T1100G fiber used in their construction. Brown calls T1100G “the strongest fiber available,” and it’s used to create a stiff bend profile throughout each shaft that encourages a low-launching, low-spinning trajectory.

All T1100 shaft are handcrafted in the company’s R&D facility in San Diego with a counter-balanced design that allows golfers to add more club length or head weight to improve ball speed. They use what Project X calls an “ultra-premium brilliant, high reflective finish” that takes four days to apply.

Dustin Johnson, winner of this week’s Genesis Open and the No. 1-ranked golfer in the Official World Golf Rankings, is currently using a tour-only, 95-gram version of the HZRDUS T1100 shaft in his 3 wood (See DJ’s full WITB).

The HZRDUS T1100 ($450 each) is currently available in two weights (65 and 75 grams) and three flexes: 5.5, 6.0 and 6.5.

    Yeah right, sign me and my 20 hdcp. up for the over 75 gram “Tour Only” version. I mean, me and

    my internet warrior near tour swing needs all the carry I can get, especially with soggy fairways

    as Riviera had. Got to keep up with D.J. when I play those back tees! These companies are killing

    me these jillion dolls’ shafts for hacks like me! Where’s a 90’s era Callaway “firm” shaft when ya

    need it? Good luck marketing these during fitting sessions!

      Same materials as GD shafts. Really for 115 ss+ with a fast transition, so everyone on wrx needs one.

    Again, no retail shafts heavier than 75g. No sale from me.

      DJ carries 320 yds with a 68g shaft and you need more than 75g. Sure, bud.

        Well yeah, but we both need the heavier ones for our fairway woods. Duh

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.
