Matrix Radix Shaft Review

matrix radix shaftOverview-

Matrix introduced the Radix with the goal of penetrating a wide open market filled with avid golfers looking to get a piece of the famous Matrix shafts.  With the OZIK as Matrix flagship, not many golfers have the stomach to fork over $250 to $400 for a shaft.  The Ozik is a great shaft, but is marketed to a few.  The Radix was introduced in 2010, using the award-winning “HD” structural design without putting too much burden on the golfer’s pockets.

Some may wonder where the name Radix stems from.  Well, it’s Latin for base or root. The Radix has the HD design, giving Radix the most advanced and perhaps the only internal structure technology in its class.


Matrix Radix is similar to the trickle down of technology in motor racing, giving the Radix HD an advanced internal structure technology.  The Radix HD introduces a unique design that guarantees the same tip-to-butt stiffness ratio throughout the flexes.  Since the ratio remains intact, ball flight is progressively flattened as the overall flex stiffens.  The Radix HD 7321 is a similar to the OZIK F7M2, which is built on the advanced HD chassis.

Player Feedback-

“Perfect ball flight, and so trustworthy of a shaft”
