By way of background, been playing the 913 D2 (8.5 deg) for about 9 monts. Play the S+ 73x shaft, and after much tinkering get the most consistent results on the A1 setting. Swingspeed around 105 - 107. I am a 1.5 handicap. Originally was fit by a titleist certified fitter. But, I did change out the stock red weight in favor of the green weight. Just feels better to me.
For what its worth, I do tend to get even better results on the A1 setting with the red sole weight, but I just can't control it. Miss is a big hard hook that seems to show up out of nowhere. I recognize some might be skeptical, but after extensive testing with the green and red weights, I have more control with the green. Though, I have no idea why that would be.
All in all, I love the performance of this club, and most of the time I get great results. Problem is, I really don't like the "feel" of the S+ shaft. Seems a little, well, harsh. Also, it tends to be very inconsistent. Probably me, but it is what it is.
I am scheduled for another fitting to try out some different shafts. But I like to be an informed consumer. So what I am looking for are some suggestions for alternative shafts which would have similar performance, ie lauch angle and spin, to the S+ I currently game. In a perfect world, the new shaft would also launch a little flatter (not lower).
Suggestions? And, thank you in advance.
