Touting the Project X HZRDUS Smoke Green as the stiffest shaft in its arsenal, it certainly stands up to that billing! We tested all of the models statically and had some of our strongest players test the 60 and 70 gram models.
The HZRDUS Smole Green comes in two weight classes, 60 and 70. The 60 is available in 6.0, 6.5 and 6.5TX flexes. But be careful, the flexes are actually playing a full flex stiffer, i.e. 6.0 plays to 7.0, etc. The 6.5TX will play like a X flex tipped an inch. The 70 comes in similar flexes, 6.0, 6.5 and 6.5TX. The 70 gram shafts play stiff to designated flex as well. The cool thing about these shafts is that the weights are actually pretty light, 62-68 grams in the 60 and 72-78 grams in the 70. This is likely due to the use of the Hexcel Hex Tow HM63 fiber which is extremely strong for its weight.
Both of these shaft models are low launch and low spin. They have the stiffest tip profile of all of the HZRDUS and Even Flow shafts. The closest competitors in our database are the Mitsubishi Chemical Golf TENSEI CK PRO Orange and the VEYLIX Rome 688 Black.
These shafts are only slightly counterbalanced which means they will yield slightly higher swing weights in today’s modern drivers.
The mid-section of these shafts play very stiff which is great for stronger players with faster transitions. Perfect “gamer” driver shaft for a couple of my Long Drive guys!
The HZRDUS Smoke Green shaft is available in traditional grey finish or the Gamma PVD finish shown in the pictures here. Pretty awesome if you ask me!
These shafts are designed and will hold up to some of the strongest swings. I would choose a softer tip shaft for fairway woods, unless you are planning on using the fairway wood mostly off the tee.
