The Ultimate Shaft Event is back in 2019 and this year is going to be incredibly special.

Qualifying
THP Events are held throughout the year and are incredibly unique ways to share a round or weekend with THPers and are filled with equipment, prizes and more. Your ticket to enter these events is the 2019 Albatross Club membership which goes to help a wonderful charity and for more information on that, click here.

Small Batch
There will be some surprises
The experience will begin about a month before the event where you will get a shaft sent to you from Project X. This is called your baseline shaft and your job will be to test it out and take some notes for a few weeks about what you like and what you would change.

Once the event begins at Project X Headquarters, there would be a tour and then you will sit down with the experts and design your own shaft. Based on the current feedback as well as the performance notes from your baseline shaft, adjustments to flag sizes, material angles and more would be made. You will get to see torque, frequency, tip deflection change as your design gets adjusted. It might sound overwhelming, but trust me when I say with the team in place, this will be an unforgettable experience. You will be designing all of the properties of your shaft with a team of people with expertise to make it perfect.

The next day would begin at Project X Headquarters again where you will hand roll your very own shaft. Then its off to graphics. Here you will work on design and color options for your completed project.

This is open to 5 THPers
The cost for the event is $349

This is a great event/experience for those lucky enough to attend. Not only the education you get on shafts and how they are made, but creating a one off with personal graphics is awesome.

This is going to be off the chain. Can't wait to see who will piss off Don Brown the most. I hope that I get the chance.

I still think a 1 of 1 shaft is one of the coolest ideas to ever hit this community.

Glad to see it continue!

A custom shaft made specifically for you, along with graphics... so cool we get opportunities like this and to hang out and pick their brains on all things shafts. Great experience for those that get selected!

Got to meet the new graphic designer and he is definitely someone that the 5 members will get along with great. If you dont enter this one then you're missing out on potentially the event of the year here.

This has always been up there in the top of all Events to dream about, getting to finally know what is really the right shaft for the game is so amazing and then getting to make it is icing on the biscuit.

I was waiting for this one to come back, such an awesome experience that only THP/Project X bring to us members. Unfortunately soccer tournament weekend. Can't wait to follow along!

HEAT!
This has been one of my favorite events! Just to get a chance to experience something not many people get to do is amazing. Learn about shafts & then get to make YOUR VERY OWN! C'mon that's just unbelievable!

"Yeah this is my custom designed shaft I made myself over at PX." "Yeah sure it is .... have another one pal!" I'd love to have that conversation as I blow it past them on the tee box. "Dude ... where did you get that shaft? It just fits your swing perfectly."

Yeah I want in on this one!
