I have narrowed it down to these 2 shaft options. I have a 'real-time' course driving average distance of 283 yards(as close to no-wind as possible). Not 100% sure on swing speed because of inaccurate machine. I have a mid and straight ball flight. I am looking for similar ball flight if not a little higher, mid/mid-high ball flight. I am interested in 10.5 degree head (same degree as I have now) and like to feel in control of golf head so not tons of torque, and stiff flex (or course). I am just wondering what significant differences are between these 2 shaft options and what you'd recommend for me with the description I have told you. I know it is not an elaborate description, so I apologize for that. And I know I SHOULD be fitted, but I am in a time crunch and nearest fitter is 2 hours away for me. Any suggestions and comments are greatly appreciated!

that was very helpful! Thank you for your suggestion!

I hate to give a conflicting opinion, but I will.  I can't recommend getting fitted enough, that it the ultimate determination.

Based on what you said though, I would go with the lighter, blue 62 shaft.  I can only speak from my experience with it, but I have a swing speed of 100-105, and I use the blue 62 s flex, which I was fitted for and my distance is just slightly less than yours.  I don't have a problem with torque at all.  And if you're looking for a higher ball flight, the 62 is the way to go.

Yeah I wish I could sneak away to get fitted, just not in the books for right now. Thanks for the suggestion. I was slightly leaning towards the blue 62, I just don't want to lose accuracy with the lower weight of shaft and slightly higher torque. Anything on that to reassure me before I pull the trigger on it?

Both honest opinions. 

Both shafts are stock and in most fitting carts.  I thought I heard the shafts are in the $150-175 range to order by themselves.  I'd hate to toss out $400 and then another $150 to be happy with a stock shaft.

i hit about 275~285 and i recently went with 913 D2 white 72.  on the monitor, white 72 gave me slightly better number but it came down to the feel.  I felt like the white 72 just gave me little more stable consistent feel. i know some people like lighter driver that gives you slightly higher swing speed but i like stability over swing speed.  i've been using this driver for past couple months and i couldn't be any happier. i've been hitting pretty stable mid flight balls.  what are you using right now?

Okay I like control over distance for sure!! As I continue to debate both options I bet I end up grabbing the white 72. And I would like to not spend another 175$ afterwards to get the other shaft option, that'd be a huge waste. Thanks guys for all your help!! It is greatly appreciated!

I struggled with a slice for a while now.  I just purchased the Diamana 62 S+ in stiff for my R1 Black.  I previously had tried the stock shaft (RIP Phenom 55g) in both R and S flex.  Torque on this shaft was 3.4 and 3.5 respectively.  No help correcting my open face at impact (in-to-out swing resulting in push blocks and slices a lot of the time).  Then I tried NV 65 in both R and S flex.  Both of these came in at 3.5 torque as well.  Then finally, I hit the 913 D2 with the Diamana 62 S+ and the results were amazing.  Hmmm.. why do I hit this club straight but slice the R1, SLDR, Covert, Burner, Razr Fit, Cobra AMP Offset, etc., etc., THE SHAFT.  THE SHAFT on the 913 D2 is the Diamana 62 S+ in stiff flex and the difference is it has 4.5 degrees of torque.  So that is what has helped me straighten out my ball flight to something I see on Saturday and Sunday on TV.  1 degree of torque can make a big difference.  Anyway - I love the 62 S+ (Blue) but I can't comment on the 72 S+ (White).  It wasn't the driver head of the 913 but the shaft that was the difference for me.  Sorry if I got off subject... just trying to tell you my story for your own use.
