Nike does have clubs that work

Thinking of replacing the stock Fujikura shaft in my 2009 Burner TP.  There are quite a few of the TaylorMade Ozik X Con-5 shafts out there for sale.  Are they the real deal or a manipulated likeness made by TaylorMade?  Seem like a lot of pulls so that has me believing that they are not a quality shaft.

Honestly, I can't afford a real X-Con 5, so this seems like a "worth a try".

ANYBODY know about this shaft and how close it is to a real Matrix X-Con 5??

I also had one and it actually seemed legit and played like it was supposed to.

For me it just did not feel right. I pulled it and installed F7M2 LTD and got better numbers!

The TaylorMade XCON is made by Matrix, but it's not the same as the original. Do you really think that TaylorMade is putting $300 shafts in their stock drivers?

The TM Xcon 5.5 is a made for, the Xcon 5 is a real Xcon with TM graphics, this is according to a sales rep from Matrix.

You don't think they really cost $300 do you?   big_giggle

For Matrix, it's a no-brainer.  Sell onesy-twosy to small shop distributors in the US or make a nice deal and sell a huge number of shafts to the number one seller of drivers in the US.

The XCon 5 shaft in the TP is the real deal, made in Anaheim, as are the other TP Matrix shafts. The 5.5 is a made in Asia made-for
