Summary: I was not sure I wanted adjustability but it is a great capability to find my own "neutral". I tended to over-draw or hook the ball on my misses with my old driver, but now I can actually hit a power fade. Love this club. Hot face. Solid, quiet sound at impact. Black face shows ball mark after hits so you can tell where you are making contact which is great for troubleshooting. Currently I'm set for low shaft angle, neutral sole plate, and heavier weight on the toe.
