I ordered a shaft 70tx but received a 60tx in which is really 69g so I gave it a chance never hit a 60tx always been a 70tx player. I kinda liked it. But am curious what a 70 will do in which is really 79. Can anyone tell me there experiences from the 60 to 70 driver shaft weights.

    If it’s a higher balance point shaft (counterbalanced) the 79 gram shaft will feel like it weighs mid to low 70s. If it’s lower balance point the 69 grams may feel like a low 70 gram shaft with mid balance point. The 70tx usually will have lower torque than 60tx all else being equal. At least thats been my experience.

    How long is your driver? If it’s shorter than 45 then I would definetly stick with the heavier shaft.
