    Supertri MWT Setup

    Have any of you Supertri users adjusted the weights to bring your spin rate down? My current setup on my 10.5 is 6 heel/14 back/2 toe. Im trying to get my spin rate down a little and was wondering if any of you went thru this process already and what your experiences were. Being that the weights do cost some bucks, I was hoping to get a feeling of what to expect before purchasing additional weights. Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    haven't done that with the weights. I would say your best bet to bring your spin rate down would be a different shaft.

    I always thought the weights on the TM MWT drivers was too low in the club head to effect spin rate. As said above possibly a shaft change or maybe adding hot melt to the top of the driver closer to the face might be something to look at.

    Thanks guys. I found some MWT FCT Taylormade charts which shows how each setup affects loft and spin rates. According to the chart I can lessen spin rate up to 850 rpm...i'll give it a try.

    I have the original R9 head and have experimited with moving the head and weights around along with switching shafts.

    High spins has not been a real problem for me, so I didn't really consentrate a ton on that, however too high of launch was and switching to a Voodoo shaft helped, but brought the flight down too far with a "N" set up and heavy heel weight.

    Weight move helped some but switching to a Miyazaki Blue shaft has made all the differance. Mid trajectory that allows higher or lower based on setup, plenty of carry and roll, so spin is correct.

    It is worth getting the weights and trying this out for yourself with different set ups. They are not to expensive on Ebay I think I got mine for about $30.

    I played an 8-1-8 set up to get my spin and launch angle down.

    Right now I think i'm at 16-1-1 giving it a try

    I know I'm resurrecting an ancient thread, but the chart in post #9 is relevant. I just got my Supertri today and am trying to gain a better understanding of the setup characteristics. If there's someone who feels they understand the different variations I'd love to have a chat via PM, phone or thru the thread.

    My questions for starters:

    1. The chart above says opening the face decreases effective loft and vice versa. This is completely counterintuitive to what I know about all other clubs so is it wrong or am I?

    2. If both N and NU give you a square face but NU has a 2* upright lie angle, am I correct that like irons, that more upright setup would encourage more of a draw/straighten out a fade?

    3. What have people found works best with the weights for different issues?

    4. Any good links to charts/instructions?

    5. Other things I should know?

    The chart is correct. When you open the face of a driver it causes spin to go down which then decreases launch angle.

    2. If both N and NU give you a square face but NU has a 2* upright lie angle, am I correct that like irons, that more upright setup would encourage more of a draw/straighten out a fade?
    Yes. NU promotes a draw.

    3. What have people found works best with the weights for different issues?
    In the R11 I had, I liked the weight in the heel to keep the fade/slice minimum and produce a draw.

    4. Any good links to charts/instructions?

    5. Other things I should know? That chart on the link above should help you out..

    Posted my answers in bold... I dont have a Supertri but its same thing with R9 and had the weight technology in the R11 I had a little over a month ago. Hope that helps.

    The link that bridges put up is a great one.

    However I should add that spin going down may lower ball flight, but it is different than loft.

    Thanks Bridges! That makes sense on the spin reduction (my first question) I was baffled there for a minute as obviously when you open up a wedge you hit it higher not lower, but hadn't thought about the effect to spin. Thanks again. I'm super-psyched to game this baby as I've wanted it for over a year but couldn't justify the $$$ when my driver was only 2 years old.

    With the bonus trade in at Dicks and some coupons I had, I got it down to $170 cash. Then it came with a small chip in the crown, when I went in to swap it they didn't have any more and so offered to take $50 off. Figured it was only a matter of time til I dinged it myself, so may as well save fifty bucks! $120 for a new Super-tri, I'll take it!
