For 2009 Matrix is launching the new TP HD and HD series. So far the TP HD has been used by such players as Anthony Kim, Camillo Villegas and many more.
Matrix created new levels of structural strength for the TPHD and combined them with advancements in spin control. "HD" refers to the hexadecagonal (16-sided) internal platform on which the designs are built. With the stronger 16-cut butt section, Matrix engineers were able to better structure and strengthen the tip section without adding overall weight and, at time, even lowering balance points to better match today's high MOI, low CG heads. The result is a stronger tip-strength-to-weight ratio than found with any previous Matrix OZIK.
The internal HD structure can be made more consistently uniform than a circular deign, further reducing the need for specific orientation during installation.
In terms of performance, players should look forward to flatter, more piercing Tour-type ball flights and a more stable feeling than they have ever experienced with a Matrix OZIK shaft.
