What would be the Swingweight of a 913 D2 10.5 Driver, with a 45" Rip Phenom 50 shaft?
Could this be swingweighted to D6?

Hi Jeff, The Phenom shafts do swingweight a little heavier due to their balance points. We can get the 913 D2 10.5° driver with a RIP Phenom 50 shaft at 45" to a D5 using a 14 gram weight. Just make sure your pro shop requests that swingweight when placing the order. There is no upcharge to build to that swingweight.

Thank you Cathi,
Additionally, do you happen to know if the Rip Phenom 60 would play the same as the 50?
I was recommended a 50 during a demo day, but did not get to try the 60. I tend to like more weight to give me more control and consistency of strikes, but liked the flight I was getting with the 50.
I notice the torque is lower on the 60.

Hi Jeff, It depends on whether you like overall weight, heavier shafts or a heavier swingweight. They are all different. In general, heavier weight shafts will hit the ball lower and sometimes spin less. Usually, when someone has a quick tempo, the heavier swingweight and/or shaft will help them with timing. The 60 will launch lower and spin less than the 50 and we can build that shaft at D6 if you prefer.
