Flat swing. Shallow angle of attack. Need highest launching shaft. GO!
(For the driver)

Kusala white 56s or 61s or an Accra Dymatch 2.0 RT (Responsive Tip) in M4 flex.  I swing mid 90's.  I currently own the Kusala White 61s in a 290 classic.  I am planning on buying the Accra next.

The white would also be a good suggestion though you might want to consider going regular depending on swing

I touch off base, but I have to admit that I am launching the ball higher then every with the R1 driver head set only in the 10 degree setting (9.5 actual I think) with low spin.

Face angle is your launching friend more then a different shaft. Your main worry with face angle will be to much spin this is why you will need a low spin head...seems like 2013 is the year if the low spin heads, so have a look around instead of chasing your tail with shafts.

My SS is right along with yours. Oh by the way, the Fuel 50 S launched very nicely in the R1

Nobody here swings as flat as I do, hence the high launching shaft. And so far kusala is greatness

I would go out on a limb and say that you could not have a flatter swing than mine. Kuchar might be close. I have been loving the launch of the Blueboard and S+. Still getting things set up right to test the PXv and AD DI to see who wins.

I really struggled with a flat backswing, but when I went to see a really good pro he had me try a oneplane backswing (with steeper shoulders) my arms and hands finally started to work more upright instead of inside. You dont even have to execute a "perfect" oneplane backswing to make it work. This has done wonders to my golf. Now I love seeing the ball fly up in the air. I dont use a oneplane through and finish swing (that requires a lot of flexibility and clubhead speed) I just use a classic Phil Mickelson-finish with active arms. Try it!! What do you have to lose? :)

Kuchars shoulders is rather steep actually, and that helps him launch the ball. Hogans backswing is somewhat similar but he finish with his arms high, which also makes the ball go "UP" :)

Its excellent shafts. But it only solves the driving problems. If you have a really flat swing 5-4 iron, fairwaywoods would still be a problem I Imagine. As my pro told me: you can play golf with many kind of backswings but not when you let your hands fall inside behind your body...

Just a quick note here - why not stay with a good medium launching shaft for better consistency, and go to a more lofted head?

Changing loft will always be more effective at raising launch angle than any shaft change.

Changing loft as a lefty is much more difficult
Don't like "closing" an adjustable head to increase loft.

The titleist 910 and 913 have a 12 version
G20 and g25 have 12's
G15 has a 13.5
