Anybody playing the Green HZRDUS “hulk” from project x? Wondering how stout it is

Quite stout. Tried out a bunch of shafts awhile back including the new Ventus and an Evenflow. HZRDUS Green felt like a piece of pipe, had to go at it hard to make it feel like it was loading.

I'm playing the HZRDUS, Small Batch, PVD, 70g, stiff shaft. I love it!!! TM SIM Max 9* head, swing speed 110mph.

I guess it all depends on your transition regarding the "feel" of this shaft. 

I've hit a lot of stiff, heavy shafts prior to this and I can say it doesn't feel like a board or pipe to me at all. 

Also, I can swing hard with it all day long and feel pretty comfortable it's not going left.

The green hulk is the stiffest shaft that PX has produced. The stoutness will feel different to every person. I know some guys with borderline 100mph smooth swings that tried it and didn’t like the feel or results. Another guy I talk to at the range had it in a couple drivers and he’s in the 115+ range. He liked it in the epic but not the Pxg.

Sounds good! My thought is a stout shaft like this might be a good setup for a heavier head and fast tempo. The combo might help load it. Just looking for stability when I want to go after it

From my experience with PX shafts fast and aggressive swings like the hzrdus black and the hulk. The smoke line softened up the shafts a bit over the original hzrdus line. PX used some be materials in the green. I don’t know if it affects the stiffness. I don’t recall seeing an EI profile on the green or the hulk version of green but if it’s less beefy one the middle than black the stoutness would go down.

Heavy heads are offset well by a counterbalanced shaft, Ping does this all the time.

If you have a fast tempo then maybe a stout shaft is the way to go!
 

One thing to pay attention to is torque. Torque can make a stiff profile feel smooth, such as the Fujikura Ventus line. That’s why I recommend testing a bunch, or go for a proper fitting if you can.

It’s not necessarily torque that makes a shaft feel smooth. The EI profile has a role in it too. 

 The torque in the original Hzrdus black is the same as the ventus black and they feel completely different.

Agreed, I only meant it’s often overlooked since most people only look at flex and maybe profile.

I don’t think it’s overlooked but many have the wrong perception of what it’s for. Years ago it was definitely more about the twisting at impact which it still influences but having hear directly from different shaft brands that it’s more about feel these days the twisting aspect isn’t what goes into the design as much.

How many still do a waggle test or try to bend a shaft to see how “stiff” it is? Those both mean nothing when it comes to how stiff a shaft is.

I've used it in a SIM 6* Its a nice shaft. But even with my swing speed it feels a bit out of my abilities.

In the TX flex absolutely as it has a completely different bend profile. According to Russ over at golfshaftreviews, the standard flexes have a bend profile that is just slightly stiffer (mainly in the handle) than the HZRDUS Smoke black shaft.  The most apparent difference is that the HexTow material used in the Smoke Green makes it slightly lighter while being slightly stiffer.
