Help me with Launch Spin Shaft decision

Here is my situation:

I went to a fitting night for members at my a local golf galaxy and tried a few HiBores. End result is, I couldnt find a combo that "worked" for me. Results:

9.5 - Launch Average - 12*, BackSpin, 2500 - 2800

10.5 - Launch Average - 15*, BackSpin, 3100 - 3300

Cleveland wants the launch of the 10.5 and the spin of the 9.5...

My current driver is a 510TP 9.5 with a Shaqx, which I have played with great success and no other current offering has beat for the last 3 years, but Im curious to see what the new heads have to offer.

Here is my question:

The Cleveland Rep said he wanted me to keep the 9.5 head because of the spin rates and switch shafts to up the lauch angle.

From what Ive read on the boards, I think it would be easier to keep the launch angle of th 10.5 and pick a shaft to drop the spin rate.

What is your opintion?

I would really appreciate any info you migh have. Im a high 100s, low 110ss, hitter with a fast transition.

Thanks again.

10.5 w/ higher kick point and less spin shaft in X flex around 70 gr or heavier if you can handle it.
