SHAFT REVIEW – Project X Graphite Shafts

By: Matt Saternus

How many times have you let some preconceived idea or bias get in the way of playing the best equipment for your game?  I think for many of us club-crazy golfers, the answer is “more times than I’d like to admit.”

Personally, I will admit to a bit of a bias against Project X.  Despite being fit into them on a couple of occasions, I’ve never loved the feel of their iron shafts.  Because of this, I’ve never given too much thought to their graphite offerings.  As you’ll see in this review, that would have been a HUGE mistake: the Project X graphite shafts are some of the most accurate and consistent I’ve ever tested.

Notes, Feel, Price, and Miscellaneous

I came into this review with very low expectations for the feel of Project X graphite.  I will happily report that I was wrong to expect so little.  To me, the Project X feels most similar to the Nunchuk: a solid, “one-piece” feel with very little kick or torque.  While not as smooth as a Matrix or Diamana, there’s nothing harsh about the Project X whatsoever.  I found this feel was very similar from 6.0 to 7.0.  Players with more swing speed or more aggressive tempos may disagree and could find more difference from one flex to the next.

With regard to looks, the Project X plays it safe with a solid blue color and minimal graphics.

When considering the standard and tour issue lines, weights of the Project X graphite shafts range from 60 to over 100 grams.  Flex ranges from 5.0 to 7.0 on the Rifle scale

Project X graphite shafts carry an MSRP of $275 but can be found for around $150.  The Tour Issue profiles can be found through select fitters and club builders or through some OEM custom order programs.


For the Performance testing, I hit each of the shafts in a Callaway RAZR Fit 10.5 head on a FlightScope X2 launch monitor.  I hit 20 “good” shots with each shaft, changing frequently so that fatigue was not an issue, nor did I get grooved with one shaft to the detriment of fairness.

Testing was done at Golf Nation in Palatine, IL, one of the best indoor golf facilities in the country.

*NOTE: Testing was done inside. Uur FlightScope seems to be producing somewhat different numbers indoors compared to outdoors.  To greater or lesser extents, ball speed, and spin are all coming in lower than they did outdoors, hence the carry number is smaller.  That said, it’s still an apples-to-apples comparison, so no attempt has been made to “normalize” the numbers: we’re publishing the numbers straight off the FlightScope, as always.



The Project X shafts produced very consistent numbers for me across the board.  The launch was medium-high, and the spin was very manageable, especially when you consider I was hitting exclusively fades (with the exception of a couple pulls).

The big story to me is the accuracy.  In my opinion, the “Off Line” number doesn’t really do justice to the Project X in this case.  While the shots may have been consistently off of the center line, they were very tightly grouped.  The dispersion numbers in the FlightScope graphic are some of the smallest I’ve ever achieved.  In fact, were it not for two pulled shots, I think each shaft would have posted a dispersion number under 40, which is outstanding for me.


As I said in the intro, the Project X graphite shafts are some of the most consistent and accurate that I’ve ever tested.  While there are not a lot of different options in the standard line, the Tour Issue line offers enough different weights and profiles to suit a wide variety of different players.  Though there are newer, “hotter” models out, aggressive-swinging players who want to tighten up their dispersion would do well to consider putting a Project X graphite shaft in their driver.







Complete Guide to Project X Flex Codes

Have you ever wondered what the number designation on your Project X shaft means? You know, the 5.0, 6.0, 6.5 and so on printed on the shaft. These numbers correspond with flexes from “regular” to “extra stiff plus”. While the flex is sometimes written on the shaft, many times it isn’t, leaving only the number to inform you of the flex. The only problem? The flex that corresponds with each number often changes based on the shaft model. And the power of Google can fail you as you search for a cohesive list of all of the flex code meanings. Even the Project X website lacks any kind of compiled guide, and only some of the individual shaft product pages reveal which numbers go with which flex.

Not to worry. Golf Club Brokers has created an extensive list of Project X shafts and their flex codes. We’ll update the list as more shafts are released in the future.

It’s important to note that there has been much discussion around the designation of flex for Project X versus other shafts. A “stiff” flex from one shaft producer will not always equal a “stiff” flex from another. While these codes are accurate based on the flex that Project X indicates, your mileage may vary on how well the feel of the shaft matches the maker’s designation.

Project X Iron Shaft

The Project X iron shaft is a cult classic stepless iron shaft as well as one of the most popular iron shafts on Tour.  Geared towards players with a more aggressive iron swing, the Project X aims to keep both your launch and spin numbers down.  Looking for lower ball flight or reduced spin off of your irons?  The Project X iron shaft might be the right option for you!

How Does it Feel?

My first thought when I swung the Project X iron shaft was “huh, I don’t remember them being this stout.”  I may have been swinging the 6.5 (~x-flex) as opposed to my usual 6.0 in Project X, but nonetheless, it felt fairly stiff.  Why?  stiffness in the tip of the shaft.  The Project X is designed so that the butt and tip sections are consistent through the set, while the midsection’s stiffness varies from iron to iron.  This creates consistent tip stiffness, and thus, that more stiff feel throughout the swing.  However, there’s a notable progressive kick point throughout the set.  It’s definitely not a bad feel by any means, but more aggressive swingers with a quicker transition will most likely feel the shaft loading better.

Project X shafts are also known for their range of flex options.  Rather than the traditional regular, stiff, x-stiff, etc profiles, Project X uses a numbering system in .5 increments.  The flexes range from the softest at 5.0 up to the stiffest at 7.0, giving players five different flex options.  The 5.5 to 6.5 also offer two different weight options each, while the 5.0 and 7.0 have one.  These are all things to take into account to get that feel and performance finely tuned to exactly where you need it.

On-Course Performance

The Project Xiron shafts advertise a low launch with low spin.  Again, the way the Project X shaft is constructed creates a very stable tip, which is how they create that low, piercing ball flight and reduced spin.  I found that this is exactly what is delivered with this shaft.  My ball flight was much more piercing and penetrating than my current gamers.  My ball seemed to just cut right under the infamous Spring Chicago winds.  If you have issues with really high iron shots, the Project X might be worth a look.

Spin-wise, I also saw a pretty steep reduction from my current gamers.  This can be both good or bad if you don’t necessarily need less spin from your irons.  The good: my dispersion was more contained.  The Project X shafts tend to stay on line, and misses are fairly abbreviated.  The accuracy is good.  Where it’s not necessarily a good thing is holding greens.  With a combination of low launch and low spins, I found it somewhat difficult to stop the ball on the putting surface.  Adjusting to the roll out of the Project X may take some time.  But again, if you don’t have trouble spinning or launching the ball, you may not see the same issues.  A nice little cheat that may help a spin/trajectory issue is to go down a flex.

If you like the feel of the shafts, but need need to tune the flex a touch, you can always hard or soft step them, since the weights of the shafts are the same throughout the set.  This means that you can put the 3 iron shaft in a 4 iron, or vice versa, in order to change that midsection profile.  This will change both the launch and spin either up or down depending.

Final Thoughts

There’s a reason that the Project Xhas not only been around forever, but is so popular on Tour. It’s a great iron shaft.  If you’re looking for more penetrating iron shots, or to reduce your spin, take the Project X for a whirl.  With all of the flex and weight options available, faster, quick-transition swingers are sure to find a fit that matches their game for both feel and performance.


Even if you are a relative newcomer to golf shafts you will soon come across Project X shafts if haven’t already heard of them.

How Can You Tell Fake Project X Shafts?

Unfortunately, as with other top sporting goods, golf equipment can be a victim to counterfeiters.

If you are interested in buying a new Project X shaft for your bag but are worried that it might be a fake shaft, there are a few things to look out for.

  1. Double check the brightness of the stickers or decals. Authentic labeling is often “duller” with fake Project X shafts having over-the-top bright stickers.
  2. Check serial numbers – these are located at the butt end of the shaft and you should clearly see the number along with the length of the shaft (prior to being tipped).
  3. Try to stay clear of eBay and Craigslist – if you are looking for a cut price deal on Project X, then the best times to buy are Black Friday and at the end of the golfing season.
