(9) TESTERS ANNOUNCED: Matrix MFS5 White, Red & Black Tie Driver Shafts

Recommended Posts

(9) Testers Wanted!!!

Matrix MFS Shafts - 1jpg.jpg

Matrix White, Red & Black Tie Driver Shafts

And here we go again, fellow Golf Spies!!

The Quest for the Holy Grail has nothing on the Hunt for the Perfect Driver Shaft, and Matrix thinks its new 2017 MFS5 Shaft Series might just include the Holy Grail for you.

We need NINE (!) of you to test and review (and keep) the new White Tie, Red Tie or Black Tie Matrix shaft, whichever one is the best fit for you. (check them out here). Whether you need high launch and mid spin, low launch and low spin, or something in the middle, Matrix thinks you'll find golfing gold in one of its Ties.

Matrix MFS Shafts - 2.jpg

To be eligible, you MUST APPLY IN THIS THREAD ONLY!!!!

So please tell us:

Your first name
State or Province
Driver Swing Speed
Typical Ball Flight
Current Driver/Shaft Combo
Were you professionally fit?

If chosen, Matrix will grip and tip the appropriate shaft for you - all you have to do is swap your driver head. We will select three of you to test the White Tie, three to test the Red Tie and three to test the Black Tie.


We'll announce the testers in this thread next week.

High launch, mid spin, straight/slight draw, little roll-out

Adams Super LS 9.5* with Fubuki alpha 60 S (swapped the Fubuki from the Speedline Fast 12 LS, hated the stock Kuro Kage black in the Super LS)

Were you professionally fit? Bought both drivers off the rack and swapped shafts. I did went to a fitting to try the new gear, but none of the fitted drivers could beat my gamer.

Man this is an awesome opportunity! I've played several Matrix shafts thru the years, my favorite was probably the Orange Crush KJ Choi shaft, loved that thing. I'm throwing my name in because I have a matrix shaft currently and would be happy to compare for the MGS community 👍




112 swing speed

High fade

Tour Edge Exotics CB4 with Matrix MFS 40+ Blue in extra stiff

I was not professionally for for this combo. I selected the shaft based on history and profile.

Not fitted, lucked out with the epic at a cheap price, and it just happens to fit me well. I get very similar numbers with new drivers with stock shafts when compared on a launch monitor.
