Shaft for 913D2

I currently have a 910D2 with a Diamana Ilima 61 mid-high (red) shaft. This shaft works pretty well for me. I was wondering which shaft would be similar for a 913D2 in either Stock or Upgrade?

Thanks, Marc

Marc,

That shaft can still be ordered in your 913D2.  The Bassara W 55 would be another close option, but does promote a slightly higher ball flight.

Hi Cameron,
Thanks for the quick reply. I realized however that maybe I should have provided a little more info when asking my question.
The 910d2 I'm using now is 9.5 degrees, I am 66 and my swing speed is typically around 90.
I tend to hit the ball high, so when I went to the Ilima, I was looking for lower ball flight and less spin.
Would this info change your suggestion or would there possibly be an upgrade shaft that would give a little more ball speed.
I appreciate that you can't do a total club fitting online, but I would appreciate your comments.
Thanks,
Marc

Marc, 

The Ilima would promote a higher ball flight with high spin.  If you are searching for more of a lower ball flight and lower, then the Ilima, I would consider the Diamana D+ White or even the S+ Blue.  These are stock options in the 913 metal woods.  The Diamana D+ White will promote the lower ball flight and less spin then the S+ Blue, but will play firmer in the tip section.  Both are designed to promote a lower trajectory and lower spin then the Ilima.

Marc -

You can just purchase any of the stock shafts for 913 for your 910 driver - the driver shafts are interchangable.  I'm about the same as you (63/89) with the 10.5 driver and Ilima R flex.  I've set it back to 9.75 to drop the launch a little.  I did try a 9.5 at 10.25 913 with the Diamina S+ Blue and the numbers were better than my 910 Ilima or the 913 with the Bassara.  This was indoors at a retail location.  Will be going outdoors to an Advanced Center to see if shaft or club replacement is in order.  The S+ Blue looks to be in the $150 range as a shaft only (depending on shop pricing).

Hi Don,

Thanks for sharing your experience with me. It's always useful to be able to share someone 's experience.

For myself I opted with the 9.5 figuring I could move up to 11 if need and I felt the 10.5 would limit me to going to only 9.75.

I would be very interested in your experience at the outdoor Advanced Center.

I did try the 913 with my own Ilima shaft but the experience wasn't compelling enough to upgrade to 913 which is why I'm researching alternate shafts.

So right now, I am leaning towards to S+ Blue.

Regards,

Marc

Hi Cameron,

Thanks for the information.

Unfortunately, I live in an area where it's difficult/impossible to try out different shafts which explains all my questions.

Thanks for your help.

In the meantime, I am enjoying my 910; just looking for reason to upgrade and improve performance:)

Regards,

Marc

Marc,

This fitting center may be a little drive, but the recommended fitting center relative to where you live would be Kingswood Gold Club (info below).

The local Titleist Tech Rep is the fitter there and will have a variety of shaft options to choose from.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
