Spotted: Project X HZRDUS “Smoke” shafts



Photos of a new Project X HZRDUS “Smoke” shaft have popped up in our GolfWRX Forums.

Golfers probably know the “HZRDUS” name from any number of pros who currently play one of the shafts, but most notably Dustin Johnson who switched into the HZRDUS Black driver shaft ahead of the 2018 U.S. Open; he had also been playing the HZRDUS Black in his fairway woods for awhile previously.

But the HZRDUS name has a family of shafts aside from just the Black… there’s also a HZRDUS Yellow, Red and a T1100. Below are the differences between the current stable of shafts, according to Project X.

  • T1100: “HZRDUS T1100 is designed for better players with aggressive swing tempos who are looking for the ultimate in spin reduction.”
  • Black: “HZRDUS Black featured an ultra-stable midsection for players with an aggressive tempo seeking to minimize launch and spin.”
  • Yellow: “HZRDUS Yellow is a back-weighted, low spinning shaft with a straight taper midsection for stronger players with a smooth tempo.”
  • Red: “HZRDUS Red featured the same ultra-stable midsection as HZRDUS Black with a more active for players seeking a higher peak trajectory.”

Where will the new “Smoke” shaft fit into the HZRDUS family of shafts? That remains to be seen. From the photos, we can tell they will be “Low Spin” shafts, and will be available in at least 60- and 70-gram options in a 6.5 TX-Flex. We will update you with more information as it becomes available.

Until then, click here to see more photos of the HZRDUS “Smoke” shaft.

    Ever since graphite shafts were introduced many decades ago, the manufacturers still haven’t solved the problem of soggy floppy shaft tip action… other than building up the shaft to 125 grams, equal to steel shaft weights. The “lighter is faster” is a total scam!!!

      they are made in California after all… although good luck trying to convince a stoner into buying the shaft instead of the hash..

        Bet they are handmade by illegals because the labor content is high in setting up graphite shaft moldings. Better than picking California strawberries…. 😀
        Oh… and stoners don’t golf… only clowns …!

          No wonder California wants to allow illegal immigration… cheap labor to make graphite golf shafts wrapping dirty graphite sheet around a mandrel and then injecting sticky epoxy… a messy laborious job that homegrown Americans reject… for welfare $$$$.

That’s why we created the Go-To Adapt Jacket, to be the ideal mid-weight option that provides optimal stretch where you need it as well as enhanced breathability.

Tour Edge launches new Exotics EXS Driver



Tour Edge has introduced its new Exotics EXS Driver, which, according to the company, is designed for those golfers who seek a quality, high-performing product, but are constrained by budget.

The main feature of the brand-new product from Tour Edge is its Flight Tuning System (FTS). FTS allows adjustable sole weights to alternate between two different settings. Here’s a rundown of the two settings and what they are designed to provide:

  • FTS1: Nine-gram weight in the heel, three-gram weight in the rear for lower spin, slice reducing shape and a medium launch.
  • FTS2: Three-gram weight in the heel and a nine-gram weight in the rear for medium spin, neutral shape and a higher launch.

The New Exotics EXS Driver will also feature RollFace Technology and a new and improved SlipStream Sole. The RollFace technology incorporates modified bulge and roll on the toe, which is designed to promote straighter shots on balls hit off the toe. According to Tour Edge, the technology, combined with the enhanced sweet spot, makes this the most forgiving driver face ever produced by the company. Along with this, the new wider speed channels on the SlipStream sole are intended to improve club head speed.

Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod, explained why he believes the New Exotics EXS Driver will have a more significant impact on the market than any other Tour Edge driver before it.

“The EXS driver is absolutely loaded with technology. This is the most technology we’ve ever been able to fit into a design, and each one works in concert with one another to provide the best performing driver possible.”

“The shapes are beautiful, and we utilized only the finest in materials and components. I believe that at the aggressive price point that we are offering, the EXS driver will have its highest impact on the driver market over any other previous Exotics release.”

The New Exotics EXS Driver from Tour Edge will be available to purchase from Nov. 1, 2018, and will cost $299.

Spotted: A new Odyssey “Stroke Lab Three” prototype putter



Correction: This story originally reported this putter was in Patrick Reed’s bag. After further investigation, it was not.

Spotted at the 2018 Tour Championship at East Lake was an Odyssey Stroke Lab Three prototype putter. The putter appears to have a milled head and Odyssey’s familiar White Hot Microhinge face insert.

Stroke Lab may be a familiar name for some who know the Stroke Lab putters from around 2017. Mostly only available in the Japan Domestic Market (JDM), the Stroke Lab putters weighed heavier in the head — about 15 grams — and lighter in the shaft (about 29 grams), according to descriptions from True Spec Golf.

Is this a sign of things to come from Odyssey, or just a one-off? It would seem given the familiar name that it’s more the former than the latter, but only time will tell. What do you think about the Stroke Lab Three putter? Do you think it will be available in America at some point?
