I've got a MachSpeed black to tryout and am not sure how the adjustment settings matchup to the diagrammed flight paths. For example, if I want to adjust for more right to left (-1 face angle), is upright or flat more so?

How do the 3 diagrammed (blue) flight paths correspond to the settings?

If you look at the diagram and number each setting (Starting from the top) going clockwise 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

then the "right" ball flight diagram (red) would be setting 7 (+2), 8 (+1 upright), 6 (+1 flat)

The "Neutral" ball flight diagram (Yellow) would be setting 1 (Neutral upright), 5 (Neutral Flat)

The "Left" ball flight diagram (blue) would be setting 4 (-1 neutral), 2 (-1 upright), 3 (-2)

This is my understanding of it.

I have a Nike Machspeed SQ square and this seems to be the way it works. They could have done a better job at explaining this I believe.

I have my str8 fit set to Position 7 to try to promote a draw or to eliminate the fade

Position 7 for me gives a higher trajectory

Thanks for the correlation Perkis. They really did a bad job in explanation compared to the other's that have adjustability in their clubs.

MikeF - are you a lefty or a righty? For a righty, isn't position 7 the most left to right flight path adjustment (fade, not draw)?

I'm a righty, on my str8 fit 6,7 and 8 all promote right to left shots

My instructions have numbers on them and the blue ones are 6,7 and 8

This chart is like hieroglyphics... I'm trying to figure it out and just hoping I have it right. I have the 9.5, standard right now, 1.5* open. I put it in the #3 position (3rd blue from top) hoping to lower lie angle, from 59.5 to 58.5 and raise loft to 10.5 and close face angle from 1.5* open to .5* open. IS this correct or am I off my rocker?
