Alright, everyone, I got in my test piece this evening, a PX HZRDUS Handcrafted T1100 (pictured below).  I'm going to do this review in stages, so you're going to have to bear with me for a few days, as I am still awaiting the head to arrive I will be testing it with (hopefully it ships out tomorrow and I have it in hand in a couple days).  

Anyway, I'm going to go ahead and do my first impressions.

Straight away, out of the box, I must say this shaft is BEAUTIFUL.  The ion finish that is on it glistens in a way that I couldn't capture indoors with it rainy after work and it getting dark.  I promise Wednesday, I am off work and this baby will get it's rightful recognition in the sunlight.  It is absolutely STUNNING in person though.  Ion grey finish with the neon HZRDUS lettering, just a clean, clean application of graphics, IMO.  I also checked it for spine and FLO to see if it matched up with the grease pencil marking on the butt, and just as I suspected, DEAD NUTS ON.  I can't wait to get the head here so I can truly put this puppy through it's paces.

Shaft:

T1100b_zpsx4jrb8xx.jpg
T1100c_zpsys2nlct9.jpg

And what I'm sure some are wondering on, the head...  I went and demo'd the 2 hottest new drivers out there (name wise) and they were very similar.  I got higher swingspeeds with the new M1 440, but the Epic SubZero I had a better smash factor with.  They were neck and neck in terms of accuracy (I have a video on my phone of 2 balls each from the session).  The determining factor for me was the M1, even with a lower smash factor, I was outpacing the Epic SZ by 6 yards or so.  Accuracy the same, you always go with distance right?  I currently game the 2016 M1 430 in 8.5 degrees with a Rogue or HZRDUS Black (depending on conditions, I can hit the Black lower).  With the T1100 being the Black on steroids, I decided to go up in loft.  I went with a 10.5 2017 M1.  Found one on eBay and tried to get him to end the listing and let me buy it outright.  He didn't, so I patiently waited on the auction to end this evening.  Glad I did, got it cheaper than I was going to offer him outright.  Here's the head:

Stay Tuned right here folks, I have a feeling this one is going to be something special...

So this seller had a new M1 used listed answered questions on the listing and let the listing run through the end. I win it at $406 and pay instantly. This dirtbag refunds my payment and says the item is "damaged". No, he didn't get what he wanted for it and so he refunded a no reserve listing. His eBay store is golftourstyle and I will be happy to provide his name and address to anyone that asks it. It's a real dirtbag move to pull because you didn't set a reserve and didn't get what you wanted for it. Karma is a b!tch though.

If anyone has an M1 440 in 10.5 I need it for testing ASAP for the T1100 I just got for review.

What a freaking dirtbag. If anyone is in Broken Arrow, OK and knows this shop, please verify this dirtbag destroys this head because there's not a thing wrong with it other than he didn't like what I bought it for

Wow that's messed up. Though 406 for just the head ain't bad.

I hate unethical sellers like that. I've sold plenty of things on eBay and gotten less than I hoped but I've also had the opposite happen. That shaft is supposed to be amazing. I can't wait to hear how it performs for you.

I checked his eBay page, he's got a bunch of garbage on there right now.

Alright, I have a different head on the way now. Hopefully it's here this week. I want to test this weekend. I bought a 2017 M2 this time. I decided that because I was cleaning my 16' M1 the other night and noticed it's got some spider cracks in the crown. If the M2 gets here, I'll be sending the M1 in and if they replace it I don't know which year M1 they'd replace with. So I'm going to wait on the results of that to determine whether to buy a new M1 or not

    Thanks! I've been on the email list for years and often read the forums for information or just to confirm what I think I know. I haven't bothered to sign up as I didn't think I had anything useful to add. Probably still don't.
