Shaft options for 915D2.

I recently acquired a 916D2 with the 60 gram Aldila Rogue stiff shaft. I typically play heavier shafts in my woods (used a 72 gram shaft in the Jetspeed) and I'm looking at getting something similar as the club/shaft just feel too light.

What are some heavier options I can find under $70 that already have the Titleist adapter?

    I thought both of the stock Aldila shafts and the Diamana D+ were in the 70 gram range.

    What driver did you use before? I think some of the older Titleist drivers had swingweights that were 2-3 points higher (915 = D2 with standard length/clubhead weight). Could this be the reason it feels light?

    Titleist 915 D4 10.5*, Diamana S+ Blue 60 S-Flex
    Titleist 915F 16.5* & 21.0*, Diamana S+ Blue 70 S-Flex
    Ping G25 5-PW (25*-44*), UW (49*), SW (54*), CFS R-Flex
    Ping Zing 2 L/S (57*)
    Ping Cadence TR Ketsch Putter
    Backup Lob Wedges:  Ping Eye 2+ (58*) or Ping Eye 2 XG (60*)

    Agree - look at swing weight instead of shaft weight. The '60' is the model number is not the weight - it's actually a very heavy shaft. Go play around with some lead tape on the head.

    I was using a Taylormade Jetspeed with Motore Speeder 7.2 Tour Spec.

    Thanks for clarifying, I always thought that was the weight of the shaft.
