Contrary to popular belief, when it comes to carbon fiber, stiffness and strength are not the same. Often a stiff material is very brittle, and a strong material is not very stiff. This makes shaft engineers develop a combination of multiple materials to try and dial in ideal strength and stiffness properties for a certain shaft and creates tradeoffs when trying to design a lightweight, stable shaft that delivers maximum energy transfer. This is where Hexcel's most advanced HexTow carbon comes in: iM10.
iM10the the first Project X shaft to feature Hexcel's incredibly unique iM10 carbon fiber, a very high modulus (stiff) and very high strength carbon fiber allowing for new possibilities in golf shaft design. Because of this, iM10 delivers the stability expected from the lowest launching Tour shafts, but in a playable mid launch/spin design that is available in multiple weights and flexes - providing a variety of options to best suit your game.
- The first Project X graphite to feature Hexcel’s unique iM10 carbon fiber, a very high modulus (stiff), high strength carbon fiber that provides strength and stability while maximizing energy transfer through impact.
- Delivers the stability expected from Tour level shafts, but in a mid-launch, mid-spin design.
- Available in multiple weights and flexes, the iM10 is the most versatile option in the Project X Smoke family, providing a high level of playability to a broad range of players.
