ProjectX launches HZRDUS Smoke RDX shafts

Published

on

Last week, at the WGC-FedEx Memphis St. Jude invitational, we got a sneak peek at the newest HZRDUS shaft from Project X, and now we have all the details on the new Smoke RDX.

To produce this shaft, Project X has teamed up with Hexcel, a global leader in composites technology for aerospace and military operations based in Stamford, Connecticut, for the purpose of utilizing their HexTow® carbon fibers to add more stability to the already extremely stable line of HZRDUS Smoke shafts.

Hexcel’s HexTow® carbon fibers represent the highest quality aerospace-grade carbon fiber and are used in the construction of some of the world’s most advanced aircraft including the Airbus A350 XWB, F18 E/F, A380, and more. I realize that sounds a bit generic, but when you consider some of the other applications for their materials and the fact Hexcel topped over 3.25 Billion dollars in sales last year – they mean serious business.

The Project X HZRDUS line of shafts has established itself as a shaft built for golfers with aggressive swing tempos, and that continues with the new HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX. It’s the first golf shaft to utilize Hexcel’s new HexTow® HM54 high modulus carbon fiber and combines it with high tensile strength HexTow® IM2C carbon fiber to provide the ideal blend of stiffness and stability desired by engineers to build into the HZRDUS shafts.

Smoke Black RDX profile features an ultra-stiff midsection along with a stiff tip to provide low launch and low spin performance designed to keep up with aggressive swings.  Although unconfirmed we can make the possible assumption that since this shaft has been branded the “Black” RDX there may be other profiles released that utilize the same Hexcel composites.

Specs & Pricing

Right now we are waiting on confirmation on pricing but specs, and available flexes of the new Smoke Black RDX are available below.

    Do these play stiff to flex or stock flex?

    None of the HZRDUS lines have a shaft with a stiff mid, wonder if this is designed to resemble BAD’s LA Golf shaft…

    “Hexcel’s HexTow® carbon fibers represent the highest quality aerospace-grade carbon fiber and are used in the construction of some of the world’s most advanced aircraft…”

    Yeah, that price is going to be north of $300, which is insane.
