House of Forged?

Recommended Posts

I bought a long drive club a while back with a House of Forged shaft... I don't know what they are doing now, but it used to be made by Matrix... I like the shaft just fine for a long drive head, and might shorten it down to 46 inches and see how it does in a modern head (it's currently in an Adams Long Drive head).

 

They had a great reputation 8 years ago, but I'm not sure where they are sourcing stuff from now.

Hmmm.... so I assume all the shafts are over 7 years old? (Their social media seems to end in 2015). Could the performance still be competitive?

I don't know the answer to that... I just know they were a big name in long drive back around 2012 and I had always wanted one... finally pulled the trigger on it 2 years ago... 

 

It just comes down to what you are looking for the shaft to do... plenty of great shafts with old profiles... I still love the black tie.

They are using LA golf labs to make their shafts. Always easy to call Robert and ask.

So basically the same setup as before.

How did it perform for you compared to the Black TIe?

Hard to say... it’s a 48 inch driver with an old Adams head... feel is pretty solid but it’s just long to swing.

I think LA golf bought Matrix and the IP.

I believe Robert uses them because they will make his shafts in small batches and the excellent quality control.

Big believer in HOF shafts. My kid and I have tried many shafts and always have the best numbers with HOF. 
We are not long drivers.
