Project X HZRDUS T1100 Shaft Review

50 Words or Less

The Project X HZRDUS T1100 shaft is extremely low spin but without feeling harsh.

Introduction

Few shaft families have had the immediate Tour impact of Project X’s HZRDUS line.  What started with the HZRDUS Black and expanded to the Red and Yellow now includes the lowest launching, lowest spinning version, the T1100.  This shaft has found a place in the bag of the World #1 Dustin Johnson; does it deserve a place in yours?

Looks

Where all the other HZRDUS shafts are matte black, the HZRDUS T1100 stands apart with its silver base color.  The HZRDUS branding is outlined in a lime green that really pops, and the specs are displayed on the hazmat placard.

Feel

With the T1100 billed as the lowest spinning shaft in the HZRDUS line, it would be reasonable to think that it feels the stiffest.  However, whether due to the counterweighting or the T1100 material in the shaft, that’s not the case.  The HZRDUS T1100 does not have a big kick to it, and it’s not for the slow swinger, but it’s not boardy or harsh.  It delivers a solid, “one-piece” sensation that makes you feel completely responsible for the result of your drive.

Performance

The HZRDUS T1100 lived up to its billing by producing some of the lowest launching, lowest spinning drives that I have hit in a long time.  Its bend profile is billed as “stiff throughout,” and that was certainly what I felt.  The T1100 never got soft, loose, or torque-y, even when I swung as hard as possible.

As I mentioned earlier, there was not a single shot where I didn’t feel responsible for the result.  There wasn’t any, “Oh, the shaft got weird there.”  That led me to make consistent, confident swings that, more often than not, ended up in the area that I wanted.

HZRDUS T1100 is available in 5.5, 6.0, and 6.5 at 65 grams.  A 75 gram version is offered in 6.0 and 6.5.  It is available exclusively through Performance Fitting Center like Club Champion.

Conclusion

Despite being the newest member of the HZRDUS family, the T1100 has become most popular HZRDUS on the PGA Tour.  My experience makes it clear why: it’s very low spinning and holds up to fast, aggressive swings.  If those are characteristics you desire, meet up with your Project X fitter.

  1. Matt,
    Thank you for the review…how would you compare it to the Rogue Silver 125?

    • Matt Saternus

      Chris,

      It’s been a long time since I tested the Rogue, so I’m hesitant to make any direct comparisons.

      Best,

    what is your idea of a slow swinger? I am around 98-102 and was thinking of the 5.5 flex

    • Matt Saternus

      Bob,

      102 certainly is above average. Whether or not this is a good fit at any flex is up to you and fitter to decide.

      Best,

  3. Hey Matt,

    I play a Fujikura Speeder 757 tour spec, but I am looking for a bit lighter shaft. The 75g is 4g lighter I think and the 65g would be 14g lighter.

    My question is, as a guy that just got clocked on a trackman at 130mph club speed and 195mph ball speed. I fight high launch and higher spin. Would you think the 65g shaft would hold up or compare to the 757?

    Thanks

      Drew,

      The HZRDUS is a very different feel than the Speeder line, much firmer. I wouldn’t make the switch (or any switch) without testing it on a launch monitor first.

      Best,

      Matt

  4. Hi Matt,

    What are your thoughts about the T1100 vs Atmos Black?

    • Matt Saternus

      Dan,

      Both are good. ATMOS feels smoother to me. As we always say, it’s all about the fit.

      Best,

      Matt

  5. Hi Matt,

    I’ve dabbled in this shaft in a fitting, as well as the Kiyoshi Black, but I am always second guessing myself – since you’ve reviewed both, any thoughts on comparing the two? Thanks!

    • Matt Saternus

      Nigel,

      I haven’t tested them head to head, so I don’t have any educated opinions about the comparison.

      Best,

      Matt

  6. I used to game a Hzrdus Black 62g 6.5 handcrafted in my Epic SZ 9degree, but I have shifts to the Tensei CK Pro white 60tx.

    Swing speed is around 110-115 with ball speed getting between 165-170 (TM and Top tracer data).

    I was looking to go back to the Hzrdus Black as it honestly felt stronger BUT I am looking at the T1100 or the Evenflow T1100 which is being launched soon.

    What would your opinions be for these shafts, or would you suggest a different option like the Diamana BF series?

    Thanks

  7. Drew, not to be rude, but a 130 swing speed and 195 mph ball speed? Better check that launch monitor.
