    I have a project X evenflow blue 6.0 65g shaft in xstiff in my driver.

    looking to see what is comparable in 2021 as im getting a new 3 wood and want the shaft to match the driver cheers in advance. Was looking at the RDX smoke blue but not sure. the downside of having no custom fit places open. Swing speed varies between 105-110

    Cheers in advance.

    Is 6.0 even flow not just a stiff flex as opposed to 6.5 which is extra stiff.

    Why do you want the driver shaft to match the fairway? Wait and get custom fit for a shaft and don’t worry about the “matching”

    In Project X woods, 6.0 flex is stiff and not extra stiff. The RDX Smoke blue is a counter balanced shaft with a stiff tip so would perform and feel a little different to the smoother Evenflow blue, if looking for something similar you could just go for a 75 gram Evenflow in the three wood.

    This is correct. Although I also believe project x flexes run slightly stiffer than other brands, so the 6.0 may be somewhere in between s and x.

    OP, Id recommend checking out golfwrx for technical stuff and shaft comparisons. A lot of users who are very into their equipment and tour reps from many brands chip in also.

    The iron flex in project X is different to the woods so 5.5 is stiff in irons, 6.5 is extra stiff and 6.0 is in between but in woods, 5.5 is regular, 6.0 stiff and 6.5 extra stiff

    Perfect thats good info there thanks. Didnt want to match it exactly just the profile of the shaft and feel i liked so was wondering what would be similar in a 3 wood shaft. Sorry it was 6.5 I have
