Sorry if this has been discussed.... If I order a R1 with a 1/2 longer shaft will the lie angle still be 61 degrees?

Longer the shaft the more upright the club plays. Probabaly will be 61.5 with the longer shaft.  Maybe 62.

Lie angle is a gage measurement, so if it is 61 at 40 inches its 61 at 50 inches.

What moses is refering to is how you grip the club and if youe remain in the exact same address position.

If you gripped both the original length and the new length at the same spot on the grip and remain in the same address position then - yes - the longer club will cause the toe to come up slightly - but this in my mind is a length issue, not a lie issue.

Am I the only person who thinks a 61 degree lie on a driver is nuts?. The lie is the same as  my 7i  which is 9 inches shorter than the TM driver.

It's a hook machine if you aren't careful.

I've just realized that I tried a Nike and a Callaway with lie angles around 58 degrees instead of my R11s and the ball flies straight and further because I can hit the sweet spot better.

Less of an issue with the driver bc the ball is tee'd up, but will make the toe tick up.
