Hi all-
 
I had a driver fitting done with Chuck late last year and am now into the stage where I want to fiddle a bit.
 
Can someone please correct me if I'm wrong:
1) The weight on the bottom near the back of the head will influence the height and trajectory of the ball, and can also have an effect on the ability to close the face during the swing. The same weights on the TM drivers (with weights on the corners) have much more affect to the draw/fade ability. My goal is to get more height with my drives.
 
2) The hosel weights affect the overall swing weight of the club, which will also allow a stiffer shaft to flex like a softer shaft. In effect, you can add weight to the head and make the shaft feel more flexible (and heavy). The more weight on the same shaft will make it feel less stiff. My goal is to load the shaft a bit more during the swing for a consistent unload at the ball. Right now, I have the lightest weights in these spots and feel like I could be doing better.
 
This could also affect swing speed since it's harder to swing a heavier shaft.
 
Is this correct? I'm starting to tinker with the included weights s bit to see if I can get a slightly higher ball flight and load the shaft a bit better without trying to force it at the downswing. Also, with a slight spinal tilt to the back, it helps but is not quite enough. The driver is great in that the ball comes off the face with little spin so I get a lot of roll. I'd like to get a little spin to keep the ball in the air longer and get more carry without changing my position too much.
 
Any ideas from other people (especially the Nak crowd!!)?
