A Focus on Feel: Project X launches new Even Flow shafts

Published

on

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.

    The blue is not high launch. I hit it way too low compared to the diamana S+ blue and m+*red. I wouldn’t recomend it!

Phil Mickelson goes armlock at WGC FedEx St Jude Invitational Pro-Am

Published

on

The armlock putting method is one of the most divisive subjects currently in the game, and the latest member to experiment with the technique is Phil Mickelson.

Lefty is no stranger to changing things up (once even using a belly putter), and the 51-year-old, who already implements a heavy forward press on the greens, looks set to now give the armlock method a whirl at this week’s WGC.

Bryson DeChambeau and Matt Kuchar are two men who currently use the technique, while Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele tried out the method before ditching it soon after earlier this year.

Despite Lefty’s habit of experimentation, our photos have stunned many of our members, who have been commenting on the sight of Phil going armlock during today’s Pro-Am.

  • Tupperwolf: “Okay, now I’ve seen everything.”
  • arenapoutine: “So weird seeing him with an armlock, especially with a blade head, but it’s Phil.”
  • semarlor: “Anybody remember Phil with the belly putter? This is just as weird. But he’ll try anything if he thinks there is an advantage.”

Honma TR20V iron reviews – GolfWRXers react

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Honma’s TR20V irons. Plenty of WRXers have been commenting on the irons having tested them out, with plenty of reviewers thrilled by what they have experienced.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • chocolate_rehab: “I randomly hit them when I was testing out some shafts for my current irons. They felt amazing. I had no interest in changing irons, but they felt so good I had to think about it! I was also super surprised that they were pretty long for me. The size of the iron made me think it would be short than my Srixons, but they were pretty equal, if not a touch longer. I ended up grabbing a set of TR20P from eBay – kind of hoping they feel somewhere close to the V’s, because I’d love a bit of extra forgiveness. If they’re as good as I hope, they’ll probably be my backup set.”
  • Malc: “I tried a set, and they are legit irons. Flew a long way for me, but the shafts in mine were a tiny bit stiff and heavy feeling for me (not the clubs’ fault), but I did find the soles a tiny bit wide coming from blades. Had a nice feel though, get Sakata built ones if you can.”
  • sniper: “I hit the V and P today and came away impressed. Felt solid and looked good. I would be interested in a more extensive testing if I could find a place closer to home that caries them (rainy vacation day today).”
  • wam78: “Ended up purchasing the TR20V 6-PW, TR20P 5i, TR21X 4i with vizard 100x, 48 I sole bent to 49.5 and a 54. Needless to say, I came away very impressed with these irons. Some of the best feeling irons I’ve tested. So solid!”
