The Matrix OZIK shaft has been one of the most popular high-end driver shafts for a long time. The Matrix is where they first eared the wide spread respect for being a premier shaft maker.
The Matrix technology is impressive - three major aspects, Deformation of Energy Analysis, Gradient Energy Flow Design, and Angular Velocity Fulcrum butt design. Collectively, these technologies make the OZIK what the high-end shaft it is today. Deformation of Energy Analysis a a method for evaluating how a shaft construct relates to performance. The technology is deep into physics, or Power= Torque times Angular Velocity, or... speed that mass rotates around an axis. Matrix thesis is that most shaft are deformed and lost through the shaft's design. Not so with Matrix, OZIK. End result is more energy is transferred at the right time at the right place. Gradient Energy Flow tip is a design that allows the shaft to be more stable at impact resulting in higher MOI (good thing). This result in a high launch, lower spin combination that helps the golfer promote a better launch. Angular Velocity Fulcrum butt design steals an idea from the Archer in that energy is built in the butt section and releases in the mid section greatly increasing the energy to the clubhead and ball.
The Matrix is used extensively on the PGA tour, with three out of the top ten players in their bag. This is one area you'd thing Fujikura or Aldila own that statement. No, it's Matrix OZIK laying claim to more top ten golfers in the world using their shaft.

"The ball seems to hang in the air while still going further, it comes down with a shallow angle of descent for decent roll"
"it is an awesome shaft. there’s much more to distance than swing speed. the x con 6 is another great shaft with very low torque. very piercing ball flight"
