I honestly think the head shape can fool it, I had a buddy was switching from a square driver to a more pear shaped, the square always read 3 to 4 mph more clubhead speed. I hit and noticed the same thing against my driver. I emailed flightscope and they claim it doesn't make a difference, I am not so sure, because of they are using radar to bounce back the speed, I would assume the shape could possibly influence it.

On solid, flush hits, I was getting 154 BS, 12.4° launch, and 3450 backspin. I was estimating clubhead speed in the 102-103 range. Last time I was measured (7 years ago) I was 108 to 110.

Actual smash can change even with two center strikes depending on the quality of the strike, dynamic loft, etc
I assume it might have to do with how it bounces off the club. ie. how a stealth bomber prevents from being tracked by having angles. This is just a guess, but it seemed pretty universal when we switched back and forth from pear to square shaped or maybe my flightscope was just a little off.

The radar tracks the motion of the club over time, speed is a differential measurement over time, the shape of the club isnt relevant.
