I am looking to buy a 915D2. Done some testing. Have NOT tested Diamana D+ 60 Regular (diificult to find fitter in the Netherlands carrying this shaft). Looking for a comparison with the Diamana S+ 60 Stiff.
Should I go for softer flex (D+ White 60 Regular) or more torque (S+ Blue 60 Stiff)?

I'm 56 years old and can still put it out there. I went with the Adilia Silver 60 stiff. I tried all the other ones and that shaft just worked for me. At the end of the day, you have to go with what works for you. Good luck!

I suggest you go to a fitter and hit all of the shaft combinations you are looking at. I was confused just like you.....and after my fitting I was very surprised at what I came away with. I was too thinking of the 915D2 being a better fit for my my game, boy was wrong.
*Was thinking Rouge Shafts but just loved the smoothness and weight of the Mitsubishi Blue S+ 60g Stiff.....after deciding on the shaft I hit both heads in 9.5 Degree
Swing speeds: Ranged from 95-103
Shot shape: Big draws borderline hooks. mid ball flight
Distance: ranged from 255-265yrds Carry.....
Spin: 2700-3100 RPM
Swing speeds: Ranged from 100-102
Shot Shape: Slight draws, a few dead straight. Ball flight and launch was much higher then the D2
Distance: ranged from 260-270 Carry....
Spin: Lower 2300-2800 RPM
**Put the diver in play this past week and I am just in love with it on the course.

I've had and hit both shafts. Feel is very similar. With that swing speed the blue in stiff ( now S+ 60) is an upgraded version of what you have now is nearly the same. Mitsubishi shafts run on the softer side so I'd stay with stiff. Aldila , on the other hand run much stiffer so a regular would work.
If you want to bring the flight down going up in weight would help too like the 70 weight or going to the D+ in the same flex
diamana s+ blueboard in regular tipped an inch should work nicely it will stiffen up the tip to lower the torque a bit but you will still get the flex in the shaft just below the grip and that is what makes you carry the ball longer. by tipping it you lower the spin and torque the ball will go straighter and longer including rolling more with the lower spin rate.
