Project X Shaft Review

Expert ScoreRead review

Fitting your irons and wedge shafts is much more complex than matching your swing speed to a flex or weight profile. Each golfer swings the club differently and creates stress for the golf shaft. Strong players create more force and need a more stable shaft to deliver their optimal performance. The right iron shaft can produce improved club lies at impact and a more accurate ball flight. Project X excels at creating golf shafts for high swing speed players looking to gain control without sacrificing feel and response. Next time you are buying irons or wedges, do not accept what the manufacturer is giving you, get fit and get the best for your game.

Project X Standard Shaft Detailed Review

Design and Technology

The Project X standard steel shaft is a trusted design that many players love. The stepless design create a non-traditional steel shaft that gives golfers more stability and lower launches. Project X is great for players looking to dial in precise approach shots and tighten up their dispersion.

The Project X standard shafts are my shaft of choice for my irons and wedges. I have played several iron shafts but always return to the Project X offering. I see my dispersion shrink and feel that I have control to hit whatever shot I want to with these shafts. I feel comfortable timing this shaft and would recommend them to any golfer looking to get more accuracy and shot control in their irons and wedges.

Project X Shaft Chart

To conclude, the standard Project X shafts deliver a stable impact and ultimate shot-shaping control. High swing speed golfers and steep swingers will likely benefit from the more tip-stiff design of Project X. Players that are not as aggressive will likely find better loading and feel in a slightly less rigid profile.

PROS
  • Project X’s stepless design gives players more control and a seamless look.
  • The variety of weights and flexes makes sure that all golfers have their ideal shaft.
  • A high kick-point gives players lower launch and more control with their irons and wedges.
CONS
  • Project X shafts can feel harsh to players, especially at lower swing speeds.

  • This shaft can carry an upcharge for some iron and wedge models that make it more expensive.

Specs

Project X’s variety of weights and flexes make it very easy to dial in any type of golfer regardless of their swing style and preferences. The Project X flex scale uses a numeral system to denote increasing stiffness. The scale ranges from 5.0 to 7.0 in half number increments. Higher number represent a shaft that is stiffer in flex.

The lightest Project X shafts come in at 110-grams and 5.0 or regular flex. The 5.5 stiff shafts weight 115-grams. Stiff+, 6.0, shafts weight 120-grams and 6.5 or extra-stiff shafts weigh 125-grams. Project X also offers a tour-extra-stiff 7.0 shaft that weighs 130-grams for players looking for more weight in an iron shaft.

Conclusion

The Project X standard shaft is built for strong players looking to get the most out of their irons and wedges. Players looking to increase accuracy and tighten up dispersion can find more control in the stepless design of the Project X standard golf shafts. My iron shaft of choice, I feel comfortable recommending Project X to players that prioritize control and precision with their irons and shortest clubs. Players looking to decrease launch and get maximum performance from their player’s irons should test Project X.

How Does the Project X Shaft Compare?

Project X LZ Shaft

The Project X LZ packs the same performance benefits as the standard Project X shaft into a more playable profile. The Project X LZ is built using Loading Zone Technology that gives golfers more feel and response through a new taper design. LZ features a reinforced tip and butt section with a softer midsection to give players better performance without sacrificing feel. Aggressive golfers that do not want to swing harsh iron or wedge shafts get the best of both world with the Project X LZ.
