The Project X EvenFlow shafts are a great counterpoint to the HZRDUS line. Very smooth feel with consistent performance.
Project X has been riding a tremendous hot streak with their HZRDUS family of shafts. These shafts have been in the bags of countless pros and have stacked up wins across professional golf.
The problem is that if you don’t have some serious power, or you just want a shaft with more kick, HZRDUS isn’t for you. For those players, Project X delivers the long-awaited EvenFlow Blue and EvenFlow Black.
The Even Flow Blue and Black are some of the most stunning shafts I’ve seen. The main graphic and branding are fairly basic, but the underlying pattern and color are dynamite. The blue is one of my favorites of all time, and even the black version is somehow mesmerizing. I did my best with pictures, but these need to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.
The key word with EvenFlow is “smooth.” Both models produce a feel that is effortlessly powerful.
EvenFlow Blue is the model with the bigger kick. Whether I swung it hard or soft, I felt it hinge right around the logo and explode into the back of the ball.
EvenFlow Black has the same smooth feel but without that distinct kick point. With the Black, I felt more of an even energy transfer from grip to tip. For the players transitioning from HZRDUS, the Black will likely be the better choice.
When I first hit EvenFlow Blue, it felt fast. When I got on the launch monitor, those feelings were confirmed – I saw ball speeds that I have not seen lately. EvenFlow Black was very strong as well, with ball speeds as high as any other shaft except the Blue.
EvenFlow Blue was also noticeably higher launching than EvenFlow Black. In the averages that went into the chart above, the differences were not huge. However, on the range, which included some outliers, the Blue flew markedly higher.
For my swing and shot shape preferences, the EvenFlow Black was a perfect fit. Unless I did something really odd with my swing, the ball just went straight. With the EvenFlow Blue, the tendency was a small draw. I could get the Blue to over-draw, but I never saw the low hook that I deplore. Either of these shafts could easily be a gamer for me, but my preference runs toward the slightly stiffer EvenFlow Black.
Project X took their time in creating a follow up the HZRDUS line, and the result was worth the wait. The EvenFlow shafts have tremendous feel and the stability that stronger players need. If you like a smooth feel with effortless kick, these are two shafts you need to check out.
