Shaft for 913f 15.0

Received 913 D3 driver as a gift with the Diamana stiff 62 shaft - too loose for me.  Switched to the 72 stiff shaft and I really like the flex, balance, etc.  I can work it both ways.  So I bought the 913f 15.0 fairway wood with the 72 shaft...feels like a telephone pole.  Suggestions?

FYI...Swing speed is probably 115-120 (Can't say for sure because it has been a while since tested.), but I carry the driver about 270-280 yds, yielding 300-320 yd drives.  

Thanks in advance for the advice.

Jerome, 

Depends on if you are playing the Diamana S+ or D+.  Assuming that you have the D+ white 72 which feels to stiff, I would consider the S+ Blue 72 in the fairway.  This will play slightly softer, but will promote a higher launch and a little more spin.  If you have the S+ Blue 72 already, then consider something even softer like the Bassara 55.  This will be lighter, softer, and will promote a high launch and high spin.  These would be the stock shaft recommendations.  There are plenty of custom options that you could consider as well.

Cameron,

Thanks for the reply.

It used to be so easy - S300 in the persimmon driver.  BTW, I feel as if I hit the 913D3 and 913f clubs about 10 yards further than my previous woods, so thank you Titleist...I think.  

I did a little research.   The original driver shaft was the S+ 62.  It was too whippy - hooks.  I replaced it with the D+ 72 and it works great.  So when I bought the 15 degree with the 72, I thought I was fine, but it was the S+.  It felt like a telephone pole - heavy and too stiff.  The shop in town had a D+82 and offered to let me try it - still too heavy and stiff.  (My previous woods were the 2006 cleve Launchers with the 62g shaft.)  The shop then offered to take the original S+62 (from the driver), cut it down, and use it for the 15 degree.  Better, almost good, but still a hair too whippy.  FWIW, I think my driver swing speed is 115-120 range, but I have a very slow tempo swing, if this makes any difference for the shaft.  I carry the new 15 degree about 265-270 yds.  Next up is the hybrid, but I am waiting to solve the 15 degree shaft issue first.

Also, in the past I would try a club or two at a shop and the salesman would tell me at my swing speed I needed extra-stiff, but I always thought those shafts were too stiff for me, even though the "data" said to use the extra-stiff shaft.  This may be due to slow tempo.

Any suggestions?  Problem is that Titleist doesn't sell the fairway wood with a D+72, but I'm not sure if this would work anyway.
Thanks in advance.
