A Project X iron shaft for the masses
No longer are True Temper’s Project X iron shafts reserved for only elite players.
The new Project X 95 Flighted iron shafts are the lightest in the Project X family, weighing only 95 grams. They are also more playable than previous Project X models — the long irons have a softer tip to help golfers hit those clubs higher, while the short irons have stiffer tips to give golfers a more consistent flight with their scoring clubs.
“We had a product before called Project X flighted, which was a 120 grams shaft,” said Bill Lange, director of sales for True Temper. “With the trend going lighter and lighter, we wanted to expand that into the Project X line as well. Last year we introduced PXi, which was our first lightweight attempt at Project X. Now we have Project X 95 Flighted.”
The Project X 95 Flighted shafts also include descending weights in the club set, meaning the shorter irons are lighter than the long irons.
“That’s something that we’ve done in some other product before,” Lange said. “Long irons have a distinct feel, short irons have a distinct feel.”
The Project X 95 Flighted shafts are available in four flexes: 5.0, 5.5, 6.0 and 6.5 and retail for around $38 each.
