I'm a very fit 71 year old Brit, with a swing speed of 85-90mph. I'm contemplating buying either a 12 degree 910D2 with a Regular flex Bassara 50 shaft, or a 10.5 degree with the senior flex. I note that for the Bassara 50 shaft, the torque is quite high. It's no use recommending I go for fitting as I live in Indonesia, so I have to take a chance. I currently have two G15's (10.5 and 12 dgree) with soft regular shaftsand sometimes, I feel too much hook on my faster swings, so would the 12 degree 910D2 Reg Bassara 50 be a reasonable option for me. I'll be buying from Ebay, USA, since there's too many copies in this part of the world. Thanks & Regards.

Of those 2 options, I would go with the 910 D2 with the R-Flex shaft.  I think the senior flex will be a bit too floppy for you at up to 90mph swings.

Probably the Bassara R flex since you are close to 90 mph.  My normal swing speed is about 82 mph but I have hit 90 on occasion.

I like the Bassara shafts.    I have A flex on the 910F 19* and 910H 21* but the shafts are 1" shorter than stock (with Winn Lite Dri Tac oversize grips) and I have the Surefit setting at D3 (1.5* upright).   I also have the 910H 27* with shaft 1/2" shorter than stock with a Surefit setting of D3.  They all feel great and I was hitting them over 200 yards with the fairway today at the range and was hitting 175 with the 21H at the park the other day.

I also have a 13* TM Burner draw driver with M flex that has been shortened to 44.5" (with same Dri-Tac grip) and I was hitting drives pretty close to 250 yards Friday.

I'm thinking about a 910D2 12* next year with Bassara A flex and the intent being to set it up as a 44" driver (with B3 setting).

Thank you for your comments

Thanks for your comments. I've now gone ahead and bought a 12 degree 910D2 driver with the Reg 50g Bassara shaft. Maybe later, as my swing slows down, I'll buy a Senior flex shaft as I can re-shaft myself.

Thanks for the advice. I've gone ahead and bought the 12 degree with Reg Bassara shaft and I can always fit a senior flex shaft in a couple of years when my swing slows down more. The loss of swing speed with age is a frustrating but inevitable fact - I was at 98mph 5 years ago !
