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!

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best 3-woods for a high handicapper

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been looking at 3-woods for high handicap players. WRXer ‘Metro07’ is very much a Cobra guy but is open to other suggestions, saying:

“I am 53 and not a long hitter so I obviously don’t have a fast or even moderate swing speed. I got back into golf 5 or 6 months ago after being out for many years and was never really that good back then, I still haven’t broken 100 on a real course. I’m hitting my 4 iron about 175 carry.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

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.

  • Nichex524: “I’d focus on either a 4 or 5 wood honestly… and as far as forgiving goes, most Ping models will probably be helpful enough as far back as the G20 even. Make things as easy as possible, especially if you’re not looking for distance.”
  • ThwFlyingWasp: “I know you’re a Cobra guy, but I swear the Ping G410 SFT is the easiest fairway wood I’ve ever hit off the deck… it’s not the longest out there (by far), but it’s point & shoot easy & great off the tee as well if you tee it down… plus lofts are a little higher than normal to help the ball in the air… 16* 3 wood & 19* 5 wood… it’s like cheating… it’s so good… seriously lol… try them.”
  • Striker Ace: “I highly recommend the Callaway Big Bertha B21 5 wood, IMO it is so easy to hit straight, especially with the amount of offset that this thing has. I use it as my driver also, but it is also easy to hit from the deck. Give it a try!”
