Project X Denali Blue 60TX Shaft Review – Specs, Flex, Weight

Project X Denali Blue 60TX Shaft

The Project X Denali Blue 60TX is billed as the mid-spin and mid-launch entry into the new line which consists of two shafts: the Denali Blue and the Denali Black.

Today we will be taking a close look at the Project X Denali Blue 60TX specifically. How did it fare during testing? Read on to find out!

Project X Denali Blue 60TX Shaft Overview

Project X states that the new Denali line is the culmination of exhaustive collaboration between their tour and engineering teams.

The goal was smooth transition in any swing condition. And I must say, the Project X Denali Blue 60TX delivers.

Even as a tour extra stiff shaft, the Project X Denali Blue 60TX didn’t feel boardy. Instead, it felt smooth even when I stood on it.

I can describe the feel of the Project X Denali Blue 60TX shaft as moderate.

There is a moderate action that can be felt through the transition. And the grip section feels moderately stiff as well while letting up a bit in the tip section.

The result is a moderate kick that really flows with your swing and seems to accelerate the club head through the ball.

And I really liked the looks of the Project X Denali Blue 60TX shaft.

Just under the grip are white/silver “snow-like” graphics that are representative of the snow capped mountains of the denali.

This gives way to a solid, midnight blue color in the mid and tip sections.

They gave the Project X Denali Blue 60TX a metallic finish that looks really impressive up close.

Why is the Project X Denali Blue 60TX So Popular?

The Project X Denali Blue 60TX will be a favorite among fast swing speed players who want a shaft that can keep up with their swing; but one that feels smooth as well.

It offers a good blend of stability and smoothness that’s hard to capture.

How Does the Project X Denali Blue 60TX Perform?

Project X Denali Blue 60TX Shaft1

I think the Denali Blue in anything less than extra stiff might be problematic for my 90-ish MPH swing.

But the Project X Denali Blue 60TX was really impressive.

I was afraid that moving up to TX flex would send a shock up my arms; but that wasn’t the case.

Impact was buttery and more importantly, accurate.

My 4th and 5th swings with the Project X Denali Blue 60TX landed within 5 yards of each other and within four yards of the target.

The dispersion was excellent and the launch/spin dynamics were as advertised – about 15° launch angles on average and 2300 RPM spin.

This made for high-arcing shots that landed softly and didn’t balloon out of control.

My club head speed got close to 110 MPH which is like a miracle for my winter swing. And my average drive distance was 261.7 yards (carry).

Project X Denali Blue 60TX Shaft Specs

Specs Project X Denali Blue 60TX
Available flexes Regular, stiff, extra stiff, tour ezra stiff
Weight 65g
Butt .605”
Tip 3”
Length 46”

What Flexes Are Available? What Swing Speeds Do They Suit?

The Denali Blue shaft I tested was in tour extra stiff flex.

This would be a good choice for anyone swinging their drivers faster than 95 MPH.

What Weights Are Available? What Swing Speeds Do They Suit?

The Project X Denali Blue 60TX is a 65g shaft.

This is a good weight for anyone in the 90 – 110 MPH swing speed range.

Why is it So Good?

The Project X Denali Blue 60TX offers really tight dispersion.

But as the softer of the two new Denali shafts, you also get a bit of workability.

It is a good middle ground between ultra stiff and boardy shafts and fast ones.

Project X Denali Blue 60TX First Impressions

Project-X-Denali-Blue-60TX-Shaft2

My first impression of the Project X Denali Blue 60TX shaft was that it was actually a bit more active than most tour extra stiff shafts I’ve tested.

There is a bit of give low in the shaft that makes its presence known when you really unload your fastest swing on it.

Key Features & Performance

The Project X Denali Blue 60TX features a straight taper midsection which allows for smooth and efficient energy transfer.

That was evidenced by the excellent club head speed I was getting.

Project X Denali Blue 60TX Driver Review

It’s hard to find fault with a shaft that delivers both distance and tight dispersion but that is what the Project X Denali Blue 60TX does.

It’ll keep you on the fairway and won’t waste much of your swing energy.

And you can really load up on it without having to worry about drastic loss of accuracy.

Project X Denali Blue 60TX Fairway Wood Review

With my 3-wood, I got the same kind of dispersion as I did with my driver.

But the launch was a bit high for my swing. If you struggle to flight the ball then this shouldn’t be a problem for you.

But I get most of my distance through penetrating flight so it just wasn’t a perfect match for my woods.

Who Should Buy it?

The Project X Denali Blue 60TX shaft would be a great choice for anyone who wants more club head speed without sacrificing sweet feel.

This shaft was a lot of fun to test – I didn’t want to stop swinging.

I was an immediate fan of the smooth transition and the stable feeling I was getting in the grip section.

But again, the Project X Denali Blue in tour extra stiff specifically will be for your 90+ MPH swingers.

It can stand up to an aggressive tempo but you still get the sense that it is accelerating on your downswing.

Overall, it’s a great blend of control and speed.
