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

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.

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

It's sprinkling outside right now, but I did hit 5 balls out through the backyard into the pasture behind me. This shaft will take all I can throw at it. Holy cow is is stable

I'll update this shortly. I had a range session today. Last year's m2 lost to the M1 440 for me.

Alright, time to compose some thoughts in this space.

I have taken the T1100 out for a range session as well as played a round with it on the course (plus warm-up).

Initial impressions of the shaft were posted earlier in the thread.  It's absolutely stunning to look at in person.  The first range day, I was on the range by myself for most of the session and the second half of the session, a couple of guys that came to hit balls walked up.  One asked if I was hitting a steel shaft in a driver, that's how stunning the chrome paint is on this model. It's just nice to look at.  

With that out of the way, let's talk about performance.  The first day range session, I spent 15-20 balls getting the head adjusted after warming up.  It ended up coming out that I cranked it one marking open from standard on the 9.5 2017 M2 (I could not get one of the new all aluminum adapters because no one had them so I used a 2 degree adapter from last year with the plastic ferrule).  This wasn't for launch conditions, per se, just to have the driver sit how I like it at address, slightly open.  I then alternated shots, 3 balls at a time from my 2016 M1 440.  The one thing I noticed, head for head, was that the new M2 was a little louder (not pertaining to this review, but worth mentioning none the less).

I hit them side by side and the 9.5 with the HZRDUS launched at the same height as my 8.5 M1 440.  I don't hit the ball really high (I tried to get to 17/1700 a few years ago and just couldn't get there).  My average launch usually is around 12-13 degrees.  Going up in loft with this shaft, I was able to replicate the same launch conditions as before.  I don't have a TrackMan of FlightScope and my local course doesn't have one either.  I generally don't do launch monitor stuff until after I adjust it on the range then play it on the course and decide whether it's reliable or not before I worry with renting time on a monitor.  If it's not going to make the bag, I'm not spending the money.  Sorry, just how I do things.

I can say that this combo performed well on the range.  I really want to try the shaft in the new M1 as I loved that head when demo'ing it.  That said, I think my M1 has some spider cracks on the crown (as I mentioned before) and I want to send it in for evaluation and see what TM does.  I bought it new and the retailer I purchased from will send it in for me.

The shaft worked very well for me.  It's stiff, but not overly boardy to me.  It has the distinct feel I like when my aggressive transition kicks in and has the almost bullwhip feel right at impact when it unloads, which is another feel I really like.  I swung it normal and then swung out of my shoes and the shaft handled both with ease.  I don't know that I have enough in the tank to ever worry about overloading the shaft and throwing something at it that it can't handle.  This one does feel a little stiffer than the HZRDUS Black Handcrafted I've been playing, but that's a good thing. I can draw it and hit a fade, but it's not as much curvature as before which is also a good hing for me as I tend to overcook those shots a little at times.  The shaft really seemed to just want to go straight though.  I played 18 the next day (Saturday) and hit some REALLY good drives.  On one hole (#4 at the home course), I carried it right around where I normally finish up off the tee.  I ended up with a little side hill partial wedge shot in which I really managed to booger up.  I didn't hit my irons particularly well at all that day and I couldn't scramble if you gave me a frying pan and half a dozen eggs.  But the one thing I did manage to do well was get off the tee.  I murdered the driver on nearly every hole I hit it on.  Several in spots I normally play from or slightly inside of them.  The feel of the shaft was exceptional all day and the distance was spot on and I was just about able to point and shoot all day with it.  Had I been able to do anything other than get off the tee, I could've possibly scored pretty decently.  I did manage to kill a drive on #18 (dogleg par 5) and had a 56* left in.  Stuffed the approach to about 4 feet and 2 putted for birdie (one of those days, and I've never eagled that hole since it was converted to a par 5.  Only one on the course I've never eagled). 

Overall, if I were to recommend the shaft to someone, it'd be someone that likes a little stiffer feel and that appreciates really feeling the shaft load and unload.  It does play slightly stiffer than the previous HZRDUS, but it's not overly harsh while doing so.  I think the shaft will get a lot of traction with the public for those that are inclined to spend the coin on it.

How does this compare to the Hzrdus Yellow and Red in terms of launch and spin?  Do you need to bee at a certain swing speed to play this one?  It seems folks like the yellow and you can find some reviews out there.  There isn't much I've found on the Red.  I know the Black is going to likely launch too low for me.

I have Black, Red and now T1100. Can't compare to Yellow for ya since I don't have it. T1100 is significantly lower launch and lower spin than the Red, which is suppose to be Mid\mid. I get roughly similar launch and flight with T1100 on a 12* SLDR head and Red on a 10* head. 

 

Oh yeah.. the T1100 is totally incredible to look at...
