What would be closest to F6 Baffler? F9 or F9 Tour?

Looking to replace a utility iron with something similar to the F6 Baffler but with something from the F9 range in a 5/6. Head size on F9 tour sounds most appealing, big fan of small head/shorter shaft fairway woods, but worried launch/spin may be too low with the stock Smoke shaft. Anyone had any experience with this?

    The HZRDUS Smoke is not some inherently super low launch shaft, plus we're talking about a 5/6 wood here right? You're only going to struggle with low spin if you are heavily delofting the club or playing something like a Pinnacle Gold, hah.
