The shaft is the most underrated part of the golf club. Next to the heads, the shaft must be stable enough to sustain the golfer through the swing. Unique golf shafts like Project X have implemented newer technology, mixed with old-school designs to create shafts that is geared for the affluent golfer.

Flex

The flex is the bend of the shaft. Flexes for Project X clubs are harder than normal shafts.

Taper

More weight on the shaft is directed at the bottom of the shaft closer to the head so that more speed can be applied to the swing and more force can be allocated on the ball.

Filled-In Shaft

Project X shafts are primarily filled rather than being hollow as with many other shafts.

Stability

The shaft helps maintain the stability of the club, not the handle. Because the Project X shafts are more durable, there is more stability.

Downsides

Because of the harder shafts and the taper distribution, Project X shafts are geared toward low-handicapped players. There is little to no forgiveness with these shafts.
