I went with the 910 D3 9.5 w/ Aldila RIP Phenom. I will be the 1% on here who doesn't need the lowest launch/spin shaft offered. I figure I don't battle spin issues, but could use some spin so the RIP Phenom is right in between the D+ and the S+.
[/quote]

Can you please explain how the RIP Phenom is between the D+ and the S+ ?  The torque and weight of the RIP Phenom are similar to the D+.

Aldila RIP Phenom 70  74  3.2 Stiff  Low/Mid
Diamana D+ White 72 74 3.3°Stiff  Low
Diamana S+ Blue 62 64   4.5° Stiff Mid

I like the S+ but looking for something in between the S+ and D+.  So right now im stuck trying to pick a shaft.  Thanks...
[/quote]

Why not go with the D+62??
[/quote]

i went with the D+ 62.  D+ 72 game me best numbers but i really liked the feel of the S+.  Tried the D+ 62 and it was just perfect
[/quote]

Ok.  Now im getting closer.  I need to get back out and try the D+ 62 and the RIP Phenom 60.  It looks like one of those may be a fit for me.
I was pulling everything left with the D+ 72 which tells me its too tight.  S+ was was down the middle but felt too loose and inconsistent.
[/quote]

If a shaft is too rigid, it will typically promote "bleeding" at the apex of ball flight. Which, will also be lower than optimal. Ideally, you want use the most flexible shaft you can control, as the golf swing and shaft operate under the principles of inertia. Your hands upon beginning the downswing, initially, travel faster than the club head creating a situation where the club head lags behind the shaft. At impact, the hands slow down, while the club head speeds up and ultimately end up in front of the shaft. Too rigid and the club head will never surpass the shaft, leaving the club face open and promoting shots lower than desired with a tendency to "bleed" right. Too flexible and the club head may remain well behind the hands through impact, or too far in front of the shaft if the given the chance to "unload". From what you've stated, I would look at tipping the Blueboard rather than fighting the Whiteboard or dismissing them both for the RIP, which is a completely different setup and feel.

913 D2 10.5 deg. w/ Oban Tour Prototype V430 65g 04 flex, tipped to just under 05 flex.

Hope this helped.
[/quote]

RIP Phenom 60 or RIP Alpha 60 ?  This is a great explanation.  Thanks....
[/quote]

I was referring to the Phenom 60, but both are vastly different from the Mitsubishi choices. It's difficult to convey "feel", to another person, and I have no intention of impressing my opinion on anyone. I will, however, point out that there are MANY ways to "adjust" and/or "fine-tune" a shaft, and much like I would during a fitting, I focused on the positive comments you made, revolving solely around and about the Blueboard (or S+ as this thread seems to have donned it), if it were slightly more rigid. Hence, the suggestion of ordering it tipped 1/4", which, hopefully would afford you the best of both worlds.

Lama, your responses and knowledge are impressive. Rene - I would think the Phenom 60 Stiff would be a little more forgiving on all shots than the D+ 62 - even though it's lighter, it's still going to be a demanding shaft. The Phenom definitely still has a tip-stiff shaft and will work great.

I hit the 913 D3 - Diamana Ahina 72g 9.5* clicked to a 10* and just loved it.  Was hitting low bomb after low bomb right down the center.  The feel was amazing.

That said, I have no idea what you guys are talking about with the D+ and S+ options.  Can anyone help me with this?  Is this also a stock offerering?  Also, what will having a shaft "tipped" do to the stock offering I was hitting at golfsmith?

The D+ is the new whiteboard or upgrade to the Ahina, the S+ is the new Bluebeard or upgrade to the Ka'lil.  Try are bothe stick options.  Tipping a shaft will make it stiffer than its noted flex, of you tip a stiff flex say .5" it will make it closer to an X depending on the shaft.

So if the Diamana Blue 83g stiff is perfect for me in a three wood, then a S+ 72g stiff should be great for driver, right?

If you think the Blueboard 83 is perfect in your three wood, you could also order a Blueboard 73 for your driver at no additional charge.

Tipping a shaft .5 will not make it much closer to an x flex.  1 inch tip is 1/2 flex difference.  1/2 tip will be just a tweak 1/4 flex difference.  Much of the difference also comes from the profile as well, a shaft that is already tip stiff but soft in  the middle will not see as much of a difference as say tipping a softer tip shaft.

I have the 913D3 in a 9.5 with the S+ 62 that was spinning way too much for my liking.  I did move the setting to B4, which in the LH matrix is the lowest loft and most fade biased.  I definitely improved the launch and spin, but I still think I can do better.  This is just eyeballing it, but when you watch the ball flight you can actually see the effect of backspin.  I still get that climbing effect, but not as inclined to get the cursed hook spin or the block cut floater.  The new setting definitely minimalized those effects.  But, I see some Phenoms on eBay that are swap outs by guys who aren't crazy about that shaft for them.  From what I read, the Phenom may be for me.  I need a little less torque for my swing and this might be the ticket.  I would also be inclined to go with the 70 gram version, which is the stock variety. A medium weight like the 70 will be good for tempo as well.

I am looking to lower my ball flight and spin, so I demoed some clubs today at one of the best golf shops in the country, Roger Dunn in Santa Ana, CA ( on site separate swing analyser studios from Ping, Callaway, Taylormade, Titleist, Cleveland) and here are my impressions:

my stats with 910D2 9.5, made for Titleist Kai'li stiff, tipped 1 inch:
SS 104-109mph
spin 2950rpm
angle of attack +4*
horizontal launch angle +4.2* (too much inside out, causing lotsa spin and hooks)

demo 1:
913 D2 9.5 + Diamana blue stiff (real deal)
spin - 2950rpm
SS 104mph
comment: moon balls

demo 2:
913 D2 9.5 + Diamana white board stiff (real deal)
spin - 2400rpm
SS 107mph
comment: yes, spin and ball flight lowered, but shaft felt like a 2x4, reminiscent of the RIP 60g which I hate.  Felt like I had to really go at the ball, tired after 3 swings.

Demo 3:
913D2 9.5 - Tour AD Di 7X stiff
spin - 2700rpm
SS 109mph
comment: very stable feeling shaft without the harsh, boardy feel, however, trajectory still quite high for my liking

Demo 4:
Callaway Razor Fit 9.5 + Tour AD Di 7x stiff
spin- 2200rpm
SS 107mph
comment: feel was good, not too stiff, not too whippy. Spin was good and low, traj was mid/low, which I liked, but I hit balls all over the map on the monitor, left and right. Not sure why.

Titleist 913D2 9.5 + Aldila RIP Phenom 70g stiff
spin 2400rpm
SS 109mph
comment: striped 5 balls in row, with low spin, mid ball flight and slight draw. Highest ball speed of the bunch.  The feel of the Phenom is completely different from the RIP 60, Phenom was silky and responsive and I could just put a smooth swing on it and it loaded where I want it.  At the end of the fitting, I really went after it with last few swings and got my SS up to 111mph but was hooking like crazy. I guess this Phenom also has a built-in set of brakes, too. Overswing and my hook comes back.  Nice!!

Conclusion:
I decided to order the Phenom 70g stiff tipped 1/2in to hopefully lower the ball flight a bit more and maybe even decrease spin a bit. I'm going to use it my 910D2 instead of ordering a brand new 913. Not sure the claims of more ballspeed and less spin is significant enough to warrant purchase of new head.

All in, no tax, no shipping, sent direct from Titleist factory to Houston = $130.

I love Roger Dunn!!

Hope this helps some of you with similar swing profile as me, a la 'JIMB.'

Why are people in need of extra shafts for their drivers?  Is it that you bought the driver and later decided you liked a different shaft?  I'm looking on global golf right now and it seems you don't have to pay any up charge on the titleist shaft offerings--even if you want to tip the shaft...

I didn't get an extra shaft.  When you are lefthanded like me it is very difficult to demo equipment.  My club pro has a Ping cart, but no lefthanded Anser head.  It's a pain.  I opted for the S+ without hitting it.  I know that was my first mistake.  But, I will pick up the Phenom and give it a whirl and sell my S+ on ebay.  I will sell I'm sure.

Well, the stars came into alignment for me and I had an opportunity to get a driver fitting and Accra shaft. The outcome, next season I'm looking forward to gaming a 913 D2 with an Accra Tour Z 65 (M4 flex). The setup has an awesome feel and was delivering consistent results, great improvements in distance, trajectory, and spin over my current setup of 910 d2 with the MFT 'ahina.

When the Titleist 910 first came out I was originally fitted with an Aldila RIP 60 S shaft, standard length, tipped 1/2 " for my 910 D2 9.5 driver and have since bought an Aldila RIP 70 R shaft (1 inch over length, tipped 1/2"), put a Titleist Surefit adapter on an old Voodoo S I had from a previous Titleist driver, and also a NV 65 R shaft... most days I play the RIP 70 R shaft.   When fitted for my 910 driver I was told that my swing speed was between a regular and stiff shaft.  I have enjoyed playing the 910 and most of my drives are straight down the center of the fairway.  The reason I have so many shafts for my driver is so that I can quickly change the shaft myself depending on course, weather conditions, and how this old body feels as I am about to head out to golf.

I have played Titleist drivers since I retired 14 years ago, freedom 55, and still own a 907, 909, and my current 910. Today I bit the bullet and ordered a 913 D2 9.5  driver with a Graphite Design AD BB SR shaft, 1 inch over length, untipped.   Probably would have been quite happy to use my current shaft collection in a new 913 head but you can't order just the head so...  I upgraded to the SR Blue Bullet shaft, I am hoping to lower the trajectory, with less spin, and more roll out which hopefully will give me a little more distance.  I am pleased that the shafts I currently have for my 910 driver will also fit my new 913 but I am looking forward to gaming the SR BB shaft.  I should have my new 913 driver after December 12th.

Incredible combo is... 913 D3 with a 7.2x Tour Spec.  Beautiful at address, longer and more accurate then my 913 with DI6X or Phenom.

I will be placing an order for a 913D2 with a 6.2x Tour Spec this weekend. I've got a 6.1x in my 910D2 so hoping I can crank the loft up a bit on the 913 to get the launch up and keep the spind down with the 6.2x.

Ive always heard someone say they want to eliminate the left side.  But what does it mean?  I often get balls that go left is that to mean that
certain shafts will not go left for you?  How do you know which will and which will not?  By the weight, torque or just feel???

Finally got to play with my 913 D2 9.5 with GD YS6 Stiff after over a week of being wrapped under the tree :fie:. Had my first range session and was very impressed with how straight and forgiving this was compared to my previous (Nike sq dymo straight fit).

A lot of people commented on how loud it is compared to the 910. I never played a 910 but I'm used to noise because of the Nike I'd previously played. All i can say is the 913 gets a little noisy when I play one out of the heel. This works well for me as I never previously had the ability to tell if it was a solid hit from the sound or feel at impact (with the nike everything sounded and felt bad regardless if I caught it out the screws or not). So far I've worked out "if it sounds bad it was a bad contact, if it sounds good I wasn't to far off the sweetspot". This is something (as an 11 handicapper) that I can definitely work with compared to my previous set-up.

Going for another range session tonight and putting it in play tomorrow (weather permitting).
