THP recently sent out sets of these shafts to 3 THP members to review. This will be the thread that they will use to do so. Please feel free to post your own reviews in this thread if you test these shafts out.

Well, well, well. Got home from work today to find a tidy little package sitting by the front door. I was pretty excited and tore into the box as soon as I could.

I opened the boxed and was blown away! These shafts are incredible looking! I love the chrome finish and just the simplicity about them. I can't wait to get them all shafted and out on the course! Here are some shots I took quickly before heading to the doctors office.









I will get some more photos and thoughts up soon but just wanted to get a few ideas and photos up for now.

A huge thanks to THP and UST Mamiya for this incredible testing opportunity!

Wow, those are beautiful. Kind of cool how with the chrome they don't look fully graphite.

I don't know why I expected these to be lighter than 125. Nice to see these in the hands of testers already.

Yep these are the prototypes so they are going to be comparable to the steel shafts that everyone is used to. Pretty excited to get them in and see some results.

So jealous. What you putting them in? Did you get stiff or regular?
I will be putting mine in a set of Xhot Pros 4-W. They are the F4 which is stiff.

Those things look so sweet! Can't wait for you all to get started, I think it would be an understatement to say there is an abundance of curiosity on these!

These look absolutely amazing in person. Really looking forward to how they perform!

The fact that UST is very local to me even ups my curiosity level.

Oh baby! I had these sent to Cookie as I am using a UST fitter to put these into some special irons. Cookie has been fantastic as usual and took a few pictures. First chance I get tonight I will upload them. I'm drooling over here!
