True Temper really came out swinging with the new ProjectX Shafts – ProjectX LS or ProjectX IO are two new iron sets that check all the boxes. LS and IO are both part of the Next Evolution family of iron shafts from Project X. The Next Evolution family are all designed with a specific player profile and concept in mind.
Golfers today mean business – with a new era of golfers building strength and speed on the course, they naturally create more launch and spin on contact. To cater to this new breed of golfer, True Temper launched the ProjectX Low Spin Iron Shaft. Project X LS (Low Spin) is the next evolution of the original ProjectX.
The new design was engineered to create a launch just a degree lower and spun up to 500 rpm less than its predecessor. LS is the first stepless shaft to ever feature multiple taper rates in its design, making for a unique bend profile best suited for players who struggle with spin. The all-new ProjectX LS is available in Taper tip with the flexes 6.0. 6.5, and 7.0, and hit the market in last year.
While the stronger players require launch and spin reduction to control their ball, many golfers need more launch and spin to help maximize their distances, making Project X LS the perfect shaft, True Temper wanted to also create a shaft that recognizes not all golfers are created equal, thus the The new Project X IO (Individually Optimized) was born.
As Project X IO increases in flex, it gets 5g heavier and is geometrically modified to launch lower–providing an individually optimized shaft for each flex. Project X IO is ideal for players who love the stability of Project X but need an easier to load shaft profile and are looking for a lighter weight option.
