Description

In recent memory, it is difficult to find a shaft line that has had more global success than the HZRDUS series from Project X and True Temper. HZRDUS Smoke shafts are now available in Black, Yellow, and the all-new Hulk Green. The HZRDUS Smoke Green, or Hulk, shaft is named for its incredible stability and low launch, low spin profile. Available in a breathtaking PVD finish, the HZRDUS Smoke is one of the most complete golf shafts for aggressive swingers. Already into the golf bags of Cameron Champ (one of the fastest swings on tour) and Henrik Stenson, the Hulk shaft is proven to work under the most intense moments.

Who Should Buy The Project X HZRDUS Smoke Green Hulk Shaft?

Golfers looking for a better fit either in their driver or fairway wood options should consider the Smoke Green if they want added stability and more club face control at high club head speeds. The Hulk shaft has been precisely engineered to accommodate and supplement aggressive golf swings. Players that want to maximize their distance and performance without losing control will love the performance and feel combination of the Smoke Green. Getting fit can always lead to knowing exactly what you need in your club head choices but the HZRDUS Smoke Green is a must try for players looking to push an extra inch out of their long game performance.

Project X HZRDUS Smoke Green Hulk Detailed Review

Design and Technology

The HZRDUS Smoke Green features an advanced material design that helps make it extremely stable at elevated club head speeds. Hexcel’s HexTow HM62 fibers is incorporated into the Hulk shaft to reinforce its bending profile and allow it to withstand forces applied by high swing speed golfers. The butt, mid, and tip sections of the Hulk shaft have all been perfectly balanced to deliver a golf club shaft that is more efficient at high club head speeds and diverse enough to match to many different driver and fairway club head styles.

Specs

The Project X HZRDUS Smoke Green (Hulk) shaft is available in weight and flex options to match its profile. 60 and 70-gram options come in either 6.0 (stiff), 6.5 (extra stiff), or 6.5TX (tour-extra stiff) options. For players lucky enough to come by one, a Tour Only 80TX version is also available but highly exclusive. All models of the shaft can be order in Smoke Grey or Gamma PVD finishes.

Our Experience

As a player that has played Project X shafts in my irons for many years, I expect nothing but excellent performance from all of their products. The only complaint I have ever had with the Project X line is the feel and “boardyness” that can sometimes be associated with their stiffest products. As soon as I got past the breathtaking looks of the Hulk shaft, I could tell there was something different here. I hit the Hulk in both driver and fairway wood lines and without a doubt I believe this to be one of Project X’s greatest feats thus far.

The HZRDUS Smoke Green is likely the most stable golf shaft I have ever swung. Even stronger than the popular HZRDUS T1100 shaft that so many fell in love with. The hidden brilliance of the Smoke Green shaft however is how explosive it feels during the transition into impact. I expected to be swinging a shaft that was built purely for distance and took my clubs a half to full club further, but that may be difficult to work or to dial back when I had to hit a fairway – not at all. The Hulk is surprisingly responsive, and I found myself able to hit my drivers and fairway offerings both ways on command without worrying the shaft was not going to keep up. There is no doubt that this golf shaft is getting the maximum amount of performance at top speeds, but its versatility should not be overlooked.

PROS
  • Hexcel HexTow HM63 fiber is ultra-strong and enables the HZRDUS Smoke Green shaft to be more stable at high club head speeds.
  • The Hulk shaft is surprisingly easy to swing and delivers explosive distance without a boardy feel.
  • Beyond performance, the Gamma Green Hulk shaft is one of the most beautiful designs ever created in golf shaft manufacturing and will demand attention.
CONS
  • The bold Gamma PVD color may be distracting at address for traditional players and the Smoke Grey will become the better option.
  • Premium golf shafts like the Hulk will only be available to demo and test at advanced fitting locations.
  • The HZRDUS Smoke Green golf shaft will likely be too stiff for golfers that swing their driver below 100 miles per hour depending on their tempo and loading style.

Conclusion

The hallmark of the Project X brand is performance. Performance sometimes can create a sensation that golfers object to especially if their shaft isn’t perfectly fit. The new HZRDUS Smoke line from PX has retained the performance players expect with an improved loading feel. The HZRDUS Smoke Green is a golf shaft tailored to the fastest and most aggressive swingers in golf, but I believe it will fit golfers of many styles that prefer enhanced stability especially at impact. The surprising feel of the Hulk shaft is a testament to the engineering prowess of Project X and True Temper, and many will be shocked with how easy it is to swing and how it can improve their game. Ultimately, the Hulk shaft will demand attention form serious golfers of many types and they will come for the look but stay for the explosive distance and enhanced control.

How Does the Project X HZRDUS Smoke Green Hulk Shaft Compare?

Project X HZRDUS T1100

HZRDUS T1100 at one time was considered the stoutest golf shaft on the market. The T1100 is named due to the build of T1100 fibers. T1100 is ultra-strong and creates a golf shaft that is more effective at reducing launch, reducing spin, and creating a more stable load throughout the entire golf swing. T1100 has been nicknamed the spin killer and can help some players get more distance off the tee box
