True Temper Project X Wood and Hybrid Shafts

Posted at 5:43 PM by David Dusek | Categories: Shafts, True Temper

True Temper Project X Shaft True Temper has just released the Project X family of wood and hybrid graphite shafts. The shafts had previously been available only as prototypes to professional players.

Similar to the Project X iron shafts, Project X wood and hybrid shafts are designed to provide a penetrating ball flight and reduce spin.

According to a release, the new Project X shafts are made using eight different composite materials and high-modulus graphite to ensure cross-sectional stability.

True Temper designed the new Project X wood and hybrid shafts by dividing them into three sections:
1. Butt section: Extremely rigid and stable to minimize energy loss.
2. Mid section: Less rigid to allow the energy of your swing to smoothly transfer down, toward the clubhead.
3. Tip section: The lowest 16 inches of the shaft, this area has two extra wraps of carbon fiber for added stiffness and to reduce spin.

The wood shaft will be available in Stiff and X-Stiff in weights between 69 and 100 grams. The hybrid shafts will be available in stiff flex in weights between 92 and 97 grams.

Both shafts should be available starting mid-July, with the wood shaft costing about $350 and the hybrid shaft about $200.
