Stock rdx black isn’t a friendly shaft in the offering which is weird because i loved it in driver.I bought one of these in 21 degree and as much as I try, I cant hit these UWs. Some kind of mental block. I have no doubt they are phenomenal, I just cant hit them. Could be the stock RDX maybe…?
Hit my Apex Pro 20 degree hybrid way better and it isn’t even close.
Yes! Point and shoot!Just picked up my 17 and 21 degree combo. I hit a few balls in the sim right away and it was...disapointing, but trusted the fitting and the round I could play with a demo and blamed it on me. After a round and a range session I can confirm it was a me thing back on that day.
It is so point and shoot it is unbeleivable, but then open up or close the stance and it becomes easily workable. Mind you I am a 16-17 hcp at the moment and I have been working the ball around on obstacle this summer (punch outs and trees in front mostly) with success and this club just make it easier even for the longer shots.
Hit a big fade/slice out of the woods with the 21 on a second par 5 shot ending perfectly in the middle on the fairway gaining a good 30-40 yards over a straight punch out. Mind you if the slice didn’t kick in it was OB for sure, yet I was so confident I didn’t think twice.
Next tee is either short layup, a perfect straight shot close to trees to get a line and if you cook it left or right its in the woods, again I hit a perfect fade around the trees with the 17 deg. Last hole (par 5) my drive ended on a little hill in the rough and lie was a bit uphill, hit the 17 to the middle of the fairway letting me a little wedge in and made the birdie. I don’t think I could of pulled that shot with my 3 wood.
It is hot off the face but at the same time compared to my old hybrid and fairways feel is so dense it inspire control and results don’t lie!

Ok, interesting. As mentioned, I get along with the RDX black in my driver, but oofa....the UW not so much! May give it a go for giggles...I never could make HZRDUS shafts work in fairways either FWIW. Absolutely worth a shot if you have a decent alternative on hand.
