  1. IM10 is the first carbon fiber to break 1,000 Ksi tensile strength, which allows us to use thinner walls and still make stiff and durable structures. Think of this as a next generation HZRDUS T1100. We actually had intended to launch it last year but as you all know the golf industry has been booming and we were fully booked so we had to delay the launch. They will be heading out to Tour in the desert on Monday and to the aftermarket shortly there after. DB
  2. Our Catalyst shafts have additional material that give us torsional properties very close to that of steel in the lower 8" of the shaft, so they behave more like steel during turf interaction.
  3. We have improved our finish durability greatly from gen 1 to gen 2. While nothing is bullet proof the gen 2 is much stronger and much more consistent than gen 1.
  4. There isn't, what testing we have done as well as testing on tour and by some of our partners is that for those looking to maximize swing/ballspeed is losing the headweight is better than adding additional dead weight to the shaft.
  5. A little heavier, stiffer and lower torque. We find that there is a difference in the need between what an average "X Flex" consumer needs and tour players.
  6. It's our new prototype for people who want to try longer driver shafts. The 5.5 and 6.0 are lighter weight, low 50 grams, the TX part is a longer version of our Smoke RDX 60gr TX part. All have stiff tips and more importantly stiffer midsections. We have found that parts with softer mid sections don't work too well at longer lengths. These will become widely available around the beginning of February. Congrats Jake! DB
  7. LZ was the 5th most used iron shaft model in 2020 (Calendar year). 1) Dynamic Gold 2) Project X 3) AMT 4) Nippon Modus 120 5) LZ
  8. Our tour pick up has been slower we would normally expect. COVID has certainly had an effect as equipment reps on the range are limited and equipment has to pass through some extra steps between players and trucks. The LS does just what it says, it spins 300-500 RPM less than its PX counter part at the same flex/weight. I could tell you how we do that, but than I'd have to kill you.
  9. Shafts will be available in mid July. Robot testing PX LS 7.0 spun less than X7, original Project X 7.0, C Taper 130...... Feel feedback during player testing with PGA players was that the LS felt better (less harsh) than original Project X. DB
  10. We tested with PGA Tour players, giving them two clubs, exact same specs, one with the PX and one with PX LS in the same flex. We targeted high ball speed, high trajectory guys, not all PX users. Saw consistent results across the board with the LS prototype being lower.
  11. With Project X the difference is the weight, which also is what makes the 7.0 stiffer. With DG we change the flex by moving the steps. X100 and S400 are nearly identical weight but what changes the flex is the step pattern is starts closer to the tip in the X100. With PX the shape (step pattern if you will) of the 6.5 and 7.0 are exactly the same, but the 7.0 is 5 grams heavier than the 6.5, hence it is stiffer.
  12. @Valtiel Couldn't have answered better ourselves!
  13. The Smoke Greens are the real shafts. TM is offering the 6.0 and 6.5 flexes, not the 6.5TX as stock. 6.5TX is available for OEMS to buy for custom.
  14. That's not accurate. This is the Smoke Green, just not in the purple and green PVD. DB
