The new Riptide X series shafts are the lowest torque wood shafts in the Project X line. Riptide X shafts complement this ultra-low torque design with two unique bend profiles that are optimized for maximum feel—providing two extremely stable shafts without feeling harsh.
Riptide MX, a mid-trajectory part that offers the lowest torque Project X graphite shaft in the 60g weight class, features a straight taper design for easy loading while being reinforced in the bottom 20” of the shaft with 40-Ton fiber for launch control. This design paired with extremely low torque creates a shaft that is easy to load while providing control and stability unseen in a mid-launch design.
Tempo is not how fast you swing it, it is how you swing it fast. Tempo will affect how you load and unload the shaft and is a big factor in which shaft will best suit you. A player with a quicker backswing and more aggressive transition will have a faster tempo, while a player with a slower backswing and smoother transition will have a more deliberate tempo.
Trajectory is the flight of the ball and the peak height that the ball reaches. A player who struggles with getting the ball in the air should look towards a higher trajectory shaft, while a player who struggles hitting the ball too high should look for a lower trajectory shaft.
Spin is the amount of backspin that the ball has. The designs of certain golf shafts can promote more or less spin so keep this in mind when looking for a shaft to maximize your game.
