New for 2021, True has taken their already existing technology in their popular XC5 and improved them in all areas. With a completely new design and improved technology, True Catalyst 5X is a good club for all players.
The color of the Catalyst 5X is new for True this year. With a new elegant black and yellow color, mixed with a consistent design, Catalyst wants to give you a fantastic design along with its trusted quality. Along with the new look, the Catalyst 5X will have a soft glossy shaft with a matte blade. The shaft becomes a square corner with a double concave shaft. With the kick point, Catalyst has an improved mid-flex. This allows maximum energy charging for simple force and a rigid conical zone to maximize control. For the design of the new Catalyst 5X, True has designed this club for strength. With PLD technology that optimizes 25 layers of unidirectional carbon fiber, the Catalyst 5X is designed with an advanced laminate construction to reduce the total knit weight without affecting durability. With optimized fiber angles, it provides both improved stiffness and impact strength over the XC5. Using their Axenic technology, this is a real one-piece club that results in superior control and feel of the puck. This whole package results in a club that is very light 430 grams which is 70 grams lighter than the XC5. Catalyst 5X sticks to the club's design and uses spreading pulls that are 59% lighter than the fabric used in the XC5. This all-new high-quality, widespread traction fabric encapsulates the shaft and blade and gives it unmatched strength without sacrificing weight. With True's new BAT technology, Catalyst 5X wants to give players unmatched accuracy and control. The BAT technology provides greater blade consistency and vibration-damping properties on shocks and contains light braided aramid sleeves from the heel to the blade toe for an overall softer feel with superior accuracy. Together with the BAT technology, True also uses its new PASS technology. The Performance Advanced Strengthening System used in Catalyst 5X enables a strong, less rigid blade that prevents premature foaming from breaking down, which tends to happen in the blade. It has a 25% increase in strength compared to the already historic XCORE technology. Compared to Catalyst 3X, 5X will contain higher quality materials throughout the shaft and blade.
With huge improvements in the blade, an updated flex profile and an overall increase in durability, the True Catalyst 5X is a major improvement over previous models. If you are a player looking for a light but strong club, check out True Catalyst 5X.
