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.
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...
