Depending on your swing speed, a higher loft might give you more carry = more distance?

hahhhhahaha Art that goes without saying!!!!
i meant  for a "real" playable reason.
basically my thinking has always been
the higher  u hit the thing the more chance it has of getting  into serious  trouble laterally.
esp with  any kind of wind about. hence why i  go for the 9* and below and why the egg has been a revelation recently.

fk it . ok  that head is a ripper so ill give it a blast.

stock 44,75 inch
prob beef the head weight up a notch to 200 get SW to d2.5-d3.5

where the fk am i gonna use this tthing????????????


i hit this at longy the ball might go backwards!

I don't think an 11.5 would serve any practical purpose for me as I tend to hit the ball plenty high with a 9.5 in most shaft pairings but I'm sure a great many golfer could benefit from the additional loft. For one thing a driver with that must loft on it just looks WRONG to me.
