Hi guys, high school golf coach / teacher here... have a question. I broke my driver about a month ago and finally bit the bullet to pay for a full bag fitting with titleist rep.  Tried a few different shaft options, settled on the Oban Devotion 7 05 X for the driver (915d3 8.5) and Rombax p95x for the 3 wood (915f-d 13.5).  SS 122-125 with driver, aggressive transition and lag, quicker tempo.  Being a teacher, couldn't afford to order these clubs with the rep, so I started hunting online.  Long story short, can't find the Oban anywhere and can't find the Rombax at a reasonable price.  My questions are, does anyone know where to find the Oban shaft (in a club or out of one) or know of comparable shaft options that would be more affordable and is there significant advantage to the 915 over 913 that would justify the extra expense? Thanks in advance for any help.

All I can say is when I recently bought my 913, the pro who I bought it off aleady had his fitted 915, and said that the difference, performance wise was very negligible, 915= £350 913= £130, I decided to save £220 And bought matching 913 FD for £90 I was more than happy!

Your 122-125 (driver) SS puts you in rarified company.  So, maybe the "beasts" on this site can make some suggestions.  If not, my suggestion would be to call the rep you worked with and explain your (financial) concerns.  I'm sure he'll be able to suggest some options.  You can also contact a facility that has a Titleist fitting cart and go through a series of trials and errors to find some no-additional-cost shafts that would give you similar numbers that you got with the Oban and Rombax.

As far as the difference between the 915 and 913, there's some videos out where they isolated the performance differences between just the heads (by using the same shaft).  The reviewers were getting some noticeable differences (~10 yards or more depending).  I've been playing the 910 (9.5* D2) since it came out.  When the 913 came out, I tested it and got maybe a yard or two at most.  The 913 felt better, but the numbers weren't   So, I didn't change.  My experience seemed to be consistent with the comparison videos online.

Fast forward to last week when I tested the 915.  I bolted the head onto my existing shaft and this time, I got ~8 yards more out of it.  Surprisingly, I got the best result (launch angle and spin rate) with the D3 head, so that's the one I picked up today.

    • Shot 92 yesterday on a course I get 15 shots on, so net +5. Not hopeless, but I have a lot to work on.  Fairways 4/14, greens 5/18 and 33 putts tells a lot.  This was my best hole (even with the 3-putt) (490y par 5):  305 yard drive to mid fairway 174 yard 8i to 15 feet (above the hole) The downhill putt was too long and it ended with a 3-putt par. Very happy with the 2 shots to the green!    My homecourse open this season, so I will squeeze in a couple of rounds then.      
    • That's hilarious. I had a set of clubs for a short time without the line drawn under the 6 and the 9. Drove me crazy.  Nowadays it's impossible for me to make that mistake, my 9 iron is a different style of club AND a different brand. I have a 9 iron players blade and a Super Game improvement 6 iron. 9 iron is dynacraft, 6 iron is Tour Edge. I dare say nobody could confuse them. 
    • That’s the feel I use too. It’s feeling the head drop behind with the start of the swing going more out than down. It flattens the shafts so by A5 it’s on plane.
    • Why not square? Hooks suck, too. Your face is shut in both swings.
    • Have you made the 6 instead of 9 mistake? I have! Wow that 9 iron went far!
