Matrix RADIX OZIK TPHD Shafts
Matrix OZIK TPHD was born from our desire to bring together the world's finest materials, state-of-the-art design techniques, obsessive craftsmanship, and to mesh them into "the only one" - the world's most unique performance shaft. The Matrix OZIK TPHD is the only shaft with Interply technology combined with the HD internal structure.
Interply Hybrid Technology
is the application of cutting-adge materials working in concert to create performance characteristics greater than the sum of its individual parts. Matrix believes that Interply has dynamic effects on ball speed and on sidespin reduction, and makes the Matrix OZIK TP and TPHD shafts the most advanced and materially-complex shaft franchises ever created.
Simple math tells us that 1 + 1 + 1 = 3, but Interply allows for an exponential unlocking of performance traits not achievable by the materials used individually. During the construction of shafts using this technology, each flag is laminated together in varying shapes according to the designer's intended design. The first, made from high-modulus carbon graphite is employed as a base constituent. This base is then wrapped with two full-length layers of up to 118-thread count Russian Boron (imported as thread and at competing angles for impact stability). These metallic layers are covered by a layer of ballistic, photo-sensitive Japanese Zylon for enhanced feel and tensile strength. Each structure is then finished with GMAT, a unique form of graphite from the United Kingdom, which serves as a "casing" for consistency and durability. Each shaft utilizing this technology is built in our Orange County, California R&D lab using a 12-step, 6-day, 9-person process that insures unmatched symmetry.

¡É Design refers to the hexadecagonal (16-sided) internal platform on which the shaft designs are built. HD allows for new levels of structural strength. With the stronger 16-cut butt section, Matrix engineers are able to better structure and strengthen the tip section without adding overall weight. At times this even lowers balance points to better match high MOI and low CG heads. The result is a stronger "tip-strength-to-weight" ratio than with any previous Matrix shaft.
The internal HD structure is made more consistently uniform than a circular design, thus reducing the need for specific orientation during installation. In terms of performance, shafts with the ¡ÈHD¡É label will produce flatter, more piercing Tour-type ball flights, and a more stable and crisp feeling.
• 16-sided internal structure (visible without a grip)
• More consistently uniform than a round golf shaft
• Strengthens the shaft without adding weight
