If you see a lot of players that like to tinker from week to week with shafts, that is an exception not the norm, according to all the sources I have. We hear regularly that “adjustable” drivers are rarely adjusted after they are set. Of course, the more avid, the more technical, the more into it a player may be the more he or she is likely to tinker, but the vast majority of players do not tinker. However, that is not why we did not design adjustability into this design. We decided, with the 3 loft options and based on the testing and feedback we received, that the extra engineering and expense of an adjustable system was not necessary. That being said, I do understand the benefit it is to clubmakers and fitters, no doubt. My view is if you are going to make a system that allows for shaft replacement only (originally done by Nickent before all the other adjustability started), you might as well design face angle/loft adjustability into it as well. Then you can do both, just change shafts or adjust specifications of the head. The other thing that must be considered is that there are multiple patents on adjustable hosels and to develop one that is “clean” and is not in danger of violating some other companies patent takes time and dollars. We have a couple of systems at our disposal, but they are not completely what we would like to do with regards to an adjustable hosel.
As I said before, if the ISO-T driver turns out to be successful, we may offer an adjustable option in another generation. Or, in the other driver we are developing, we may add the option.
As Always, thanks for the feedback and input. It is definitely taken seriously and we genuinely appreciate it.
I truly appreciate that in depth answer.
