So first off Iím regular flex guy 93-96mph with the driver and have the chance to pick up a project x lz hc.
Question I need help with is all the Callaway oem project x shafts state regular flex as 5.5 while the handcrafted are offered in the more traditional 5.0, 5.5, 6.0 etc.
I play 5.0 in my irons and the 5.5 in my epic driver and they suit me well but what handcrafted for my driver 5.0 or 5.5? Which one would be considered regular flex. Is the stock hdzs 5.5 that came in my epic equal to the 5.5 handcrafted?
Thanks in advance

Sorry, there is no standard for flex so asking which is closer to "regular" has no one single answer.  They all (from 5.0 all the way to 6.0 or more) can be close to some particular regular flex shaft somewhere.  Each shaft really has to be tested and judged independently to pick the correct flex - which means you really need to try out both and see how they feel to you to make the best choice.  Also the weight you are interested in can potentially make a difference with that selection as well. Although if I had to guess, based on your choice with the Epic HZRDUS T800 and swing speed (which is a poor indicator), I'd say stick to the 5.5.

Stuart is right, a real life test is needed and weight is the most important, but 5.5 does not sound wrong, but a tipped 5.0 might be right if weight is better
