Anyone playing the R1 in the upright setting? Curious how it effects ball flight?

I am.  I believe it starts the ball slightly more left than in standard position... And perhaps very slightly higher ball flight.

I do -- It was the one adjustment I made while dialing in that really made a serious difference.  When I switched to upright, things immediately started to fly more predictably.

I'm playing the club at 44.5" and I think that's got to be part of why the upright lie angle helps with my swing.

It doesn't help me start shots more to the left.  It helps me square the clubface more effectively.  That, I guess helps start the ball left for straight swings, but mine is very in-to-out.  I have the most beautiful push-fade now.  270+ and usually in the middle.

After a lot of tinkering around at the range I have settled on 10.5 upright. I get the most consistent strike and its flying quite straight although this may also have something to do with the heavy weight being fitted in the toe and the sole weight set to the max draw setting. Going out to play now for the first time with the new setting, I'll report back later.

I am 5'6" but i play the 9.5 upright lie. I dont know if its mental but i feel i hit the upright lie just a tad bit more centered (Up and down on the face).
