This is a new ongoing feature that we will be doing on BSG for members to give their feedback to others on particular shafts or heads. Rather than your typical full reviews, we figured that it would be a nice idea to start threads on various products that are out there which BSG members can either ask questions about or share their own experiences with. Since guys regularly have questions about how a particular shaft or head that they are interested in compares to something else, this will give everyone an opportunity to give feedback on a specific product while at the same creating an archive of player feedback and general product info. much like a FAQ if you will. So, please post away if you have a question or want to give your thoughts on the featured product.

I will randomly select different things to discuss based on what's new or what I hear and see guys asking about frequently. The first product that we would like to start with is:

Matrix Ozik TPHD Shafts

The TP series Oziks are designed to be the most consistent and best feeling shafts on the market. The combination of materials which include boron, zylon, and GMAT layers along with HD technology create a shaft that feels incredibly stable and smooth at the same time. My experience with the Matrix Ozik TP series shafts through playing and testing has shown that these shafts deliver the unparalleled dispersion and feel that you expect from a shaft in this price range. The low spin profile also creates a penentrating ball flight that many players need in order to maximize distance.

The TPHD is definitely my favorite shaft I swing pretty hard and fast and have ho'd around all the newest shafts but stil always go back to my TPHD. The feel of the shaft through impact is so solid and responsive it just gives me added confidence with the driver.

I got lucky enough to get a TP7HD for my R9 Tour 3-wood. I know the Matrix spec sheet lists it at low launch but I certainly do not find it to be low launch at all. Just high, strong, flat, penetrating ballflight. My 3-wood is CLEARLY the best 3-wood I have ever had and the shaft is a huge reason for it. Feels ultra smooth and stable without a hint of feeling boardy. Just really a great shaft, makes me wonder what a matching TP6HD would be like in my SuperTri...

I have a similar experience with a TP6HD in a driver shaft. I love the feel and dispersion pattern. i don't find it to be particularly low launch at all, and I tend to be a low launch player. I am always tinkering with different shafts, but I come back to this in the end. I wish I had the funds to try on in my fairway wood.

In regards to TP5HD, it was certainly geared towards a completely different type of player than TP6HD or TP7HD. I suppose that in general, the average consumer who spends this kind of money on a shaft and plays that weight range is probably more likely to fit into the TP5HD profile than the 6 or 7....totally different animals. A little odd to make that jump within a family of shafts, but it also makes sense in a way. Luckily, you still have XCon-5 and HD5 as options.

Nice collection my friend. Posted Image That mustard color on the gold TPHD reminds me of some good old Hot Dog Heaven, although it's a little more Grey Poupon like than what I would use. Still need to head up there and check out the delicacies in your neck of the woods. Posted Image

What would you say the performance differences are between the XCON 5 and HD5??

Mainly just a little lower launch and firmer, tighter feel that the HD shafts are known for.

I think you already told me this. Memory slippage. :D I think the only other
shaft that will fit me as well as the 5 probably will be the Griffin.

The TP6HD stopped me from :pimp: shafts for at least a whole year! That alone should say enough about this shaft. There are two things that stick out to me when I played this shaft... dispersion and lag (or lack of).

Yes, the feel is great but it's nice to be on a tee box knowing that if you put a decent swing on the ball, it's not going to deviate too much off it's intended line.

I mention lag because I used to be a low launcher with the driver. It seemed that shafts with lower kick points, that should launch higher, actually launched lower for me. Shafts like the TP6HD which says it's low launch, with a tip stiff, I actually launch higher. To me, it seems like this is the case because the tip of the shaft keeps up with my hands and doesn't lag.

Also, be careful with the flex on this shaft. An X in this is more stout that other X's.

J.C.- if you're listening... TPHD technology with a mid bend point please!!

There's at least one TP4HD in existence (I've hit it, too) maybe you can talk the owner out of that...

Amazing. amazing stick, and although over the long run I'd be much better off with something much heavier it was certainly fun to swing.

Is the TP7HD at 45.5" going to feel significantly more heavy that an TP6HD at the same length? I might have a chance to get ahold of a brand new TP7HD for an incredible price from a friend in another forum but I was really looking for a TP6HD. I'm thinking about jsut going for it since it's only a 6 gram or so different, it hasn't been tipped or anything (absolutely brand new), and I'm a pretty fast swinger myself. Any help on this? Thanks!

I don't know that I would say that it will feel significantly heavier, but it all depends on the strength of the player. If you are a stronger player with good clubhead speed, then the weight shouldn't be an issue.

This is a new ongoing feature that we will be doing on BSG for members to give their feedback to others on particular shafts or heads. Rather than your typical full reviews, we figured that it would be a nice idea to start threads on various products that are out there which BSG members can either ask questions about or share their own experiences with. Since guys regularly have questions about how a particular shaft or head that they are interested in compares to something else, this will give everyone an opportunity to give feedback on a specific product while at the same creating an archive of player feedback and general product info. much like a FAQ if you will. So, please post away if you have a question or want to give your thoughts on the featured product.

I will randomly select different things to discuss based on what's new or what I hear and see guys asking about frequently. The first product that we would like to start with is:

Matrix Ozik TPHD Shafts

The TP series Oziks are designed to be the most consistent and best feeling shafts on the market. The combination of materials which include boron, zylon, and GMAT layers along with HD technology create a shaft that feels incredibly stable and smooth at the same time. My experience with the Matrix Ozik TP series shafts through playing and testing has shown that these shafts deliver the unparalleled dispersion and feel that you expect from a shaft in this price range. The low spin profile also creates a penentrating ball flight that many players need in order to maximize distance.

How does this shaft compare to the F7M2 LTD in terms of feel and performance? I really like the feel of the LTD, much smoother than other low spinning shafts.

Feel wise it is very smooth like F7M2 LTD, but at the same time TP7HD has firmer overall bend profile which makes it feel stiffer. With the material make up though, it does not have harsh or boardy feel that you would normally find with a lower launch shaft. Ball flight wise, I find that the spin is pretty similar although TP7HD launches lower than F7M2 LTD.
