The key is learning how to acheive an impact pattern that is above center and "if anything" slightly towards the toe.  This allows us to take advantage of both gear effects to lower spin......and at the same time have a positive angle of attack.

Many players struggle to maintain the best impact pattern on the face, when they attempt to increase their AOA.  In other words, we won't gain anything for lower spin with an increased AOA, if our impact pattern is low and or towards the heel.

Practice a lot with impact stickers or spray on the face

that is a good Idea, i'm going to try and hit top left of center and see if I can get the spin to come down.
thanks again

Tough call.....your numbers all seem pretty good, 165 ballspeed, + 1.7 attack angle, most likely 108-110 clubhead speed. Could be an equipment issue as well. 'Stamped' loft may actually be significantly higher or shaft bend profile/flex may not fit you. Ball, Head design, shaft profile could all be contributing to your spin rate. You'd be surprised by how off the loft may be.
