  1. Does anyone know if project X steel shafts were originally made by Brunswick? Im liking these forums. Learning a lot.
  2. These are cut to different sizes…. 40 1/2, 40 and 39 1/2
  3. Well, I F’d up. I weighed them again and I’m guessing I did something wrong the first time. They weigh out at right about 67g, not the 51g I initially reported. All shafts we’re within 1.3g from heaviest to lightest. Still way to light but they don’t seem to be total wastes. Like you say, they’re probably fakes but I think they’re still cool looking.
  4. I know what you’re saying about X-outs. I would buy x-out Titleist 384 tour balata balls way back when. Used to make those things smile way too often. Now I’m old as “F” and haven’t much knowledge on newer equipment. Last new clubs I bought are Nike VR Pro combo irons and I still play them. I can see these shafts being knock offs, but they’re using actual OEM labeling? That sounds wildly illegal. Even the blem bowling balls I mentioned in an earlier post didn’t have OEM logos on them. Columbia 300 was notorious for releasing these balls and if you didn’t know what you’re doing or looking at, you could wind up with s***** weighted balls that were a paperweight at best. They rebranded them as Bonanza 300. Not sure how I still remember that. That was more than 40+ years ago. They stuck a generic label on them but everyone who knew anything about bowling equipment knew exactly what particular ball this was meant to be so it was easy to buy accordingly. The shafts in question seem a bunch out of spec while the rest are very close in weight but still not 80g that it says on the shaft artwork, which I think looks pretty cool. Looked up this particular shaft and found it’s made by True Temper. Those guys make quality products and they’ve been around forever. The project x shafts in my Nike irons are made by true temper. All this time I thought they were what used to be Brunswick shafts. You folks are probably correct as you know much more than I in this instance.
  5. That was my first thought. Im not very good at the game of golf but once upon a time I bowled professionally and there were tons of balls released by pretty much every major equipment manufacturer as factory 2nds or blems. Until I got my PBA card, I had no real access to free pro line equipment so I would buy these for my kids but only blems. Never any Squirrley weight blocks or hinky cover stocks. One little mess up in the color or some other minor issue during manufacturing cost the release of quite a few inexpensive balls to hit market. Not sure if golf equipment folks do the same.
  6. Not sure about the manufacturer. I haven’t called them because it’s a non issue for me. My buddy had a bunch of fun stuff in the garage from his parents house including some club fitting/ building stuff. His dad died about eight months ago and his Mom just passed. He’s finally getting around to cleaning the place out so he can put the house on the market. He gave me a whole bunch of cool stuff including a nice old Kenneth Smith swing weight scale, some Vokey ,Vega wedge heads and what look to be brand new Krank hybrid heads from at least 15-20 years ago and a couple of Krank driver head pulls that looked to be outdated by a decade or two Im not complaining about any of the new stuff I received. Im tickled to death with everything. Just curious as to the shaft weights.
  7. Just a question in general. Surely of the thousands of people on this site, especially the club builders, someone would have experienced this. I had a similar situation a bunch of years ago. I had taper tip Dynamic Gold lites S-400’s and 3 of the 8 weighed in at a little more than 10g lighter than spec. The HZRDUS seem like nice shafts and I’ll tinker with them. Just curious.
  8. Hey everybody, I have a question. I got a few HZRDUS Smoke hybrid shafts parallel tip in 6.5 flex 80 g. When my buddy gave them to me, first thing I did was weigh them. All of the shafts weigh in the low 50 g range. are these factory seconds, blems?
