Call them the “ying” to the HZRDUS “yang.” Project X’s new Even Flow shafts were designed with a focus on feel, a departure from the design of the company’s successful HZRDUS shaft lineup that focused on stability and improving launch conditions.

“The feedback from PGA Tour players has been unanimously, ‘This thing feels great,'” says Don Brown, Director of Innovation and Product Strategy for Project X’s parent company, True Temper.

Brown says Even Flow shafts are much different than HZRDUS, and they’re much different for a reason. Despite the runaway success of the company’s HZRDUS shaft line, which are among the most-used shafts on the PGA Tour, Brown concluded that there was “something missing” from Project X’s lineup for golfers who wanted more feel from a shaft.

“HZRDUS is very stout through the mid-section,” Brown says. “It’s for people who have a very quick transition or don’t want to feel any lag. Even Flow will load a lot more uniformly, where as with HZRDUS you’re going to get a little bit more localized loading of the shaft.”

According to Brown, the design of Even Flow encourages energy to flow more evenly through the shaft in the downswing, which most golfers will experience as a “smoother feel.” The shafts will also create higher launch angle and more spin, at least when compared to the company’s spin-killing HZRDUS T1100 shafts. But Brown says golfers looking to reduce spin shouldn’t automatically discount Even Flow.

The new shafts are available in two models: Black and Blue. The Even Flow Black is the firmer, lower-spinning version of the shaft, and is currently used by 2013 Masters Champion Adam Scott in his driver. Brown says the Even Flow Black can offer performance that’s comparable to the HZRDUS Black, albeit with a much different feel. Even Flow Blue models will launch higher and spin more, appealing to golfers who want an even smoother-feeling shaft or a higher ball flight.

All Even Flow shafts are produced in the company’s San Diego manufacturing facility, and they’re hand-finished come with a swirl pattern that will be unique to each shaft. True Temper will also launch a Black and Blue Version of Even Flow hybrid shafts.
