The Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black shaft is the latest in the evolution of the HZRDUS line of wood shafts. Using new materials and a slightly different design, this series of shaft should appeal to stronger players with fast transitions from back to forward swing.
Available in 60 and 70 gram designations, however the shafts weigh slightly less than 60 and 70 grams.
The balance point is slightly higher than the HZRDUS Black but lower than the HZRDUS T1100, which is a counterbalanced shaft. So, this shaft installed will result in roughly a one swing weight heavier feel than the HZRDUS T1100 and one swing weight lighter feel than the HZRDUS Black at a playing length of 45 inches.
These shafts also play very close to stated flex in all weights. This means that the HZRDUS Smoke Black will play softer than the HZRDUS Black, Yellow and T1100 in the same flex designation.
Even though the torque is a little higher than you would expect, this shaft will feel very stout with little to no “whip” at impact. The HZRDUS Smoke Black will actually feel a little firmer than the HZRDUS T1100 and HZRDUS Black.
If you are a stronger player looking for the low to mid launch and low spin in your driver, or even for a fairway wood, the HZRDUS Smoke will be a good choice.
