    Ged, unfortunately a poor illustration of the effects of loft. Adjustable drivers give unpredictable and player specific results when adjusted or put it another way you were not hitting a 7.5 verses a 11.5 degree driver.
    It would have been better to compare two different drivers a 12 degree and a 9.5 degree and better still if you confirmed the actual measured loft before testing.

    Talking drivers, what numbers should I look for in a driver fitting?

      Depends on what you bring to the party. Certainly you want as close to 1.5 times your club head speed in Ball Speed. Then you need a launch and spin window to optimise the ball flight for that ball speed, essentially what you are managing is the decent angle which needs to be shallow enough (<40 degrees) to maximise total distance.The higher the ball speed, the lower the launch and spin for optimal flight.
      BTW, think ranges, not hard numbers, strike has a dramatic effect on launch parameters, obviously you want a setup that makes strike as consistent as possible but hitting perfect numbers every time just isn’t possible.
