If lie didnt matter and was a standard thing then wouldnt all companies be the same? they are catering to different swings. it makes a difference.

I can't figure out how lie angle would ever affect swing speed with a driver. Speed at impact could be affected when using a club that contacts the ground such as an iron.
So youre telling me if you swing too flat or too upright your swing speed will be the same? Ive done it all and tracked all attack angles, launches, swing speeds and everything with different driver swings. Next time your on a monitor give it a try, Im sure youll be surprised at how hand position or attack angle can change your swing speed.

i thought i read somewhere that changing the lie so many degrees, changes the swing weight by so many points, i think i might butcher this but, say raise lie 2 degrees and the swing weight goes up 1 point, something like that.
Dont know about that, I like a heavier driver anyway, so thats nice haha. But it does change face angle. The 913D2 I was able to change the lie how I want and open the face. Which is awesome and really let me do more shots than I usually have with my driver.

I'm an upright swinger. when I get a driver with a flat lie my hands are too low so it changes my whole swing. when I get them high to match up upright swing I get the right rotation for my body and swing that I like. And it made a huge difference adjusting the 913D2. was mashing the ball consistently deep with a better flight.

See I think I understand now. By having your swing in the correct slot and your hands in the correct position you complete your turn better, creating a better release and highter swing speed?

With being more upright I get back into my slot better, almost exactly into the slot I create on my backswing. I release late and get my hands in my shot to create extra speed, with a flat swing this timing just isnt right. I can adjust to do whatever I need to with a driver, but being able to be comfortable and do what I feel I need to is what makes everything worth it and click. I dont think people really should change lie or really look into it. But if you are a compact swinger with a upright lie you will probably see some problems and same thing with an upright swinger using a flat lie.

My driver swing is very upright, like hitting an iron. I have a hard time teeing the ball up high because all I do is sky it. So I play the ball lower than most and a tad farther back. That's probably why I like my driver shaft a little shorted than most people.
