Review: Matrix 7Q3 "Red Tie" Shaft
The “Red Tie” look is a classic Matrix color. They do red better than anyone else. It really is a color that many associate with Matrix. The other graphics are nicely done in the Matrix style with a little twist now available; adding your name laser etched by the logo. The three color system is easy to learn, easy to remember and they all look really good.
The feel of the “Red Tie” is really amazing. It has that incredibly smooth Matrix release, almost hinge like. It is closer to the “White Tie” in terms of feel. The “Black Tie” has a much firmer feel to it. While none of the “Tie” series shafts feel bad, the “Red Tie” is the best feeling one of the bunch.
How do those numbers compare to the “Black Tie” or the “White Tie”? I didn’t do the full 20 shots for each shaft, but I did hit a few shots after I swapped out the shafts in my Callaway RAZR Fit Extreme. The “Black Tie” was about 250 RPMs lower on spin and 2* lower on launch and dispersion was 3 yards tighter. The “White Tie” was about 400 RPMs higher spin and almost 2* higher launch and dispersion was 6 yards wider. While there were benefits of each combo, for me the overall winner was the “Red Tie” because of overall performance of trajectory, spin, feel and distance. It is not too high, not too low, the “Red Tie” is just right.
