With the tour underway, a new shaft line from Project X is starting to show up on tour trailers and getting some buzz early. I would expect you will start to see these showing up in bags on tour in the very near future.

The task was simple (in theory), to create the lowest launching and spinning steel golf shaft on the market and the result is a shaft that launched a full degree lower and spun 500rpm less than its predecessor.

I like what they are doing here by saying it's for the stronger player and then not offering a 5.5 or 5.0 flex. Yes it neglects some of the audience out there, but I think it also keeps the messaging about the product true. It also eliminates people jumping at it who it would likely be a poor fit for.

They look very good. I wouldn’t think that many need lower spin in irons but maybe the stronger player does

I have the current px 6.0, though if anything I need more launch and spin.

Can't say it's for the golfer who is strong and having those issues if you then create a flex for the golfer who doesn't need it one bit

I could see you with these in 6.0 bringing your launch down a tiny bit. Could be a good fit.

Could be, with this kinda spec though I'd for sure want to jump on a monitor to confirm that.

Definitely.

I’m betting @+7 KPTT already has the 7.0s in his bag.

I wonder if they have managed to soften up the feel any, in comparison to the standard PX?

I tend to struggle with high spin and launch with the irons. I could see the 6.0s at 120g being worth a try.

These seem like the Pro X version of the C Taper.

PX LS is the first release in the Next Evolution of Project X steel so there will be some products coming for guys who didn't gain 25lbs of muscle during COVID.

Does eating lots of carbs and not doing the same 47 mile walks you are doing each day count? Asking for a friend.

Definitely intriguing, I'm definitely a high spin player who could take some height off my iron shots. I'll be watching these!

I’m definitely interested. Any news on whether any companies will eventually have these in fitting carts? It’s hard enough to find the current PX 7.0 or X7’s in anything but boutique fitting companies.

Nice looking shafts. No need for me to even try them starting out at that weight and flex.
