HZRDS Smoke Yellow vs GD IZ

Recommended Posts

I had the IZ in the past and sold like an idiot. Several drivers later I have the Smoke Yellow. They seem to feel the same. I know they are different profiles, but they sure “feel” close.

Anyone else compare these or have an input?

They aren't terribly dissimilar shafts. Both stiff butt, stiff tip, soft mid designs, and that reinforces the idea that the mid section if what most golfers will notice about a shaft.

Thanks. I think I need to get back to what I have always been fit into, a shaft with a soft butt section. I play Modus 120’s in my irons and they are perfect for me.

I too play the LZ 6.5. When they started to drop in price I bought all I could because I figured PX would never bring it back. I think it's the best shaft for me (ever) and totally unique in feel. I purchased a TS4 with the HZRDUS smoke yellow 6.5 from the factory. IMO, the yellow feels stiffer with less mid kick than the LZ. The profiles are similar, but they don't feel the same to me. I went right back to the LZ in the TS4, and this set up is a complete cannon. Nice mid kick and low spin rocket launcher. BTW, the TS4 doesn't get near the love it deserves. YMMV.

I am actually going to give the IZ a go in my driver. Had an 8x in a 5 wood but it was tipped a bit too much for me, but that thing liked to go straight and I enjoyed the feel. IZ hybrid shaft is soooo under hyped and not sure why, best hybrid shaft I have ever used.

I would agree that the Smoke Yellow and IZ are somewhat similar feels, I have had them both in my 3W. For whatever reason, my numbers seem to always be hot garbage with Hzrdus shafts, even though I want to love them. It keeps me up at night.

So it's pretty much iz in driver, di in fw, and hybrid bounces between but predominantly iz

 

Then my damn fubukis started looking at me..

Thanks man. Going to let the fitter do his thing, but hope I fit into a GD AD shaft. The IZ was good to me and paper it likes like a good fit too. Still my favorites are IZ and maybe VR.
