    Installed lefthand taylormade adapter on new shaft but i'm righthanded golfer

    I'm assuming that if keep in the standard position nothing is different. Its a 2 degree adapter both ways from 10.5 deg. If I want to go to 11 degrees what position do I set it at. One notch lower from standard? Thanks

    If it's like the adapter I have on mine, it's Standard, then 2 tick marks in between, and then +2. That tells me that you're getting 2/3 increase with each tick mark. I don't think you can get to 11. I think you're gonna get 10.5, 11.17, then 11.83, then 12.5. This is assuming your driver's loft is actually 10.5.

    aklawitter's comment is accurate, too. You'll need to go one tick mark toward the -2 to add loft.

    What he said. Had the same problem with one I got online (it was from an authorized retailer too:)). Confused the hell out of me too until I figured it out, lol. I set it up to the lowest setting and it looked all kinds of wrong. After hitting all kinds of moonball hooks I set it to neutral, and that helped some. That's when I figured it out.

    Pretty big difference between 6.5* and 10.5* of loft. It also closes the face angle some (I think?) when the loft is set higher.
