***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

T1100 Smoke/Hulk is here....

    The smoke green that TM is offering in the Sim head, is that the same as the Hulk shaft?


    Forgive me me if someone else asked, I read a majority of the 15 pages but not every response

    Not really. The "hulk" is generally in reference to the TX flex, which is not offered by TM.

    I have the Hulk 70TX (tipped an inch) and the OG Black in my hybrid (tipped an inch), so can only compare those two but would assume the driver OG Black shaft would be extremely similar if not exactly the same. Same linear feel, so no soft spots throughout the shaft but, the Hulk has a more stout/tighter feel with the expected tighter dispersion. Therefore, I really hope they come out with a Hulk TX Hybrid (I would pre-order immediately) because its just better but the black is still very good. I think thats the best way I can put it.

    No, but a Fuji rep told me they may but haven’t made the ultimate decision yet! I think they will.

    It kinda depends on what definition of "TX" they decide to use though as it varies between manufacturers.

    Yeah it seems like TX these days is now more a different profile. Oddly enough older shafts rarely came in TX. Gotta feed the ego of golfers lol

    I asked one of the large manufacturers how much stiffer is the TX than the X and below is their response copied/pasted:

    "The only real difference is the TX flex is ½ to 2/3rds stiffer in flex than the X Flex. Weight and Torque are usually the same."

    Therefore, because I get tighter dispersion with no loss in distance I go TX every time.

    That is how Graphite Design does it I believe, which is the most logical, but with several other companies that has not been the case. Outside of GD, "TX" has been used to indicate the "premium" version of a shaft that uses high end materials, and often with a different profile as well.

    So if I tipped a 6.5 70g hzrdus green (non small batch) 1" how would it compare to the 6.5tx "hulk"? I'm planning on ordering this in my speedzone next week. I've also got a phenom NL TX, and an elements platinum to toy around with. Anyone give me any insights?

    Are there any hulk threads other than this one? Wondering if this was a good shaft or not? How did this compare to the T1100 and the ventus black? I need a new shaft for my driver.

    I’ve used all three extensively. Those are the three shafts that have the longest stints in my bag over the last 3 years.

    I found the Hulk much more lively than the T1100 actually which is not what you’d think. I actually went to a TX in it because I was hitting it very high. It’s a darn good shaft. I currently play the VENTUS Black 6X. It’s absolutely phenomenal and is closer to the T1100 for me. Hope that helps.

    Driving has always been a better part of my game. Being long off the tee allowed me to cover up (stroke wise) my deficiencies around the game. Sure, I could be longer and still take two shots (within 100) and two putts and still sneak out with a bogey. Now that I’ve spent time and money (lessons) on my short game, I’ve gotten my handicap down to a 5.7.


    all that nonsense out of the way, I’ve got a brand new Hulk in my garage that’s going to the shop tomorrow to get trimmed and placed in a sim hand. Really liked the hulk in my fitting and it fits my aggressive transition well. It also minimizes my left miss, which is nice. Excited to get it out on the course.

    Yes and no. The Haz green and haz green small batch are the same shafts. The hulk is the PVD painted TX flex shaft. The TX is a very very different profile from the other flex profiles. It is extremely butt and mid stiff in comparison.

    Is there a reason to toy with the hulk if the T1100 75g 6.5 tipped 1 inch is working? (Or any other shaft ventus black maybe?) I think the current shaft is a great flex for me. Would not want to go any weaker for sure. Could go slightly stiffer but not much.

    Was the TX hulk not close to the T1100? So you think T1100 is a better shaft? Thx.

    There's no such thing as "hulk" people called it that because of the color scheme and stout feeling. But here's an article on the Hazardous Smoke Green

    Ooooh I like the idea of adding that extra weight. But yup, exactly like that! Just dropped my shaft and head off at club champion, should have it back in a few days and off to the range I’ll go.

    Well, to be fair, Project X themselves called it The Hulk and teased it with picks of it in Hulk gloves on their social media. Anyway, to answer your question....

    It is close to the T1100, yes. I mean, it’s certainly not a noodle. The T1100 still had the old school “one piece” feel that some of us came up learning the game on with Whiteboards, old Fujis, etc. I like that feel bc my swing is compact and short (Finau but plus a stroke a hole)

    I think the Smoke Green, even in TX just feels a bit more lively and active. All these new low low shafts feel way more feedback prone that the older stuff. Tense White, RPG, etc all feel very smooth IMO despite being beasts that you’d think would be harsh. While the Green may feel a touch looser, it still is an animal. I mean; it’s in Cameron Champs bag....so....

    So, does it feel like the T1100? I’d say a touch more lively. Does it perform similar for me? I’d say yes.

    Hope that helps.
