With club wars and me going spec crazy on drivers seeing why I hit some different. I got to the lie on them all. And after comparing my old faithful and beloved Nike SQ driver to all the others I noticed something different. The SQ has a very upright lie, which I'm a very upright swinger. and Always wondered why my club head speed on the Nike SQ was 112 but only 105 with others. Then I tooled the Adams LS to upright and my speed crept up a little more and I was more comfortable with the driver. I got home and compared the LS and my SQ, yup, the lie of the LS was now very close to my SQ. Bazing!

Then i dug deeper. The lie angle of drivers are so different it is insane!

Adams LS - 57.5º
Adams Super S - 59.5º
Callaway Xhot - 58.5°
Callaway Xtreme - 58.5°
Taylormade Stage 2 - 61.1°
Taylormade R1 - 61.1°
Ping G25 - 58.00°
Ping Anser -56.00°
Titleist D2/D3 - 58.5°
Cobra AMP Cell - .. Doesnt say


Even 1 degree is a big difference. and at 61.1 the TM Stage 2 TP has my attention and hopes for optimal swing performance. Since after comparing my SQ to last years RBZ they seem to have the same lie. This was a little education on driver lie, since even I clearly overlooked this. And is seems my search for a new driver might not be over.

The taylormades seem to have the highest lie that I have found yet. The D-100 looks like 59-60. I have it here and compared it to others, but they dont list it on their site.
