    For those with the F9 driver with different combinations of the weights (i.e. not the stock 14g and 2g set up), do you feel like you gain both increased accuracy and speed, one or the other or just better overall feeling? I've got the F9 and it's the longest driver I've ever hit but could use a little more accuracy... is going 14g 14g the move?

    While 4 grams of extra weight up front doesn’t seem like much, I’ve had better control with the 6g (f) and 14g (b) combo. Flight, distance and feel almost identical just more consistent with the 6-14 setup.

    Same as said above. I’m playing mine now at 7.5 degrees and 10g in front with 14g in the back. For me it got my ball flight down, and much more consistent accuracy. We will see how it translates to the course but early indications on the range are promising.

    Good to hear that adding additional weight will help dispersion. Interested to see if clubhead speed will go up and spin down. Tbd.

    I'm still on standard weights but have a tiny bit of lead tape below the weights. Set up ready for tomorrow with lowest loft setting, 2g front and 14g back. I'll let you know but so far this thing deffo has possibilities.

    This is my setup, but I have considered ordering an 18 to give me some flight adjustment options. This is ultimately me just tinkering, because the tour with 2-14’s is the longest and straightest driver I have ever owned.

    Awesome to hear. Mine is cut down to the "tour length" as well and just need some dispersion help at this point. Fingers crossed!

    I rock a Atmos 7x shaft in tour length.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback! 14g weight has been purchased.

    It has been some time since I first toyed with the F9 and I believe I have found the right set up. It only took three different F9s and a lot of patience and tinkering! I really had to work through the different weight combinations along with the right shaft. For example, the stock offering with the 14g and 2g weights didn't work for me at all. My SS was up but the ball went nowhere. It was simply too light regardless of which shaft I tried. Over the past few months I have tried all of the different weights and front/rear combinations and finally found my personal winner. Tour-length AD IZ 6X with 14g weight in the back and 10g weight up front with an additional 4g tape up front, so essentially 14g and 14g. It launches high and spin stays right near 2000 rpm. Also, with regard to the shorter shaft, I think I am actually hitting it longer than with a standard length shaft simply by virtue of hitting the ball more squarely. Long story short, try some of the heavier weight combinations or tinker with lead tape. Don't give up on the F9. It's so good once dialed in.

    Just picked up an F9 driver for $200 from Global Golf. Came in the mail today. Looking forward to trying it out.

    Still trying to get hold of some weights to dabble with. At the moment i'm still undecided between the heavy weight back and the lowest loft, versus forward weight with more loft. Serious club either way.

    Rather than ordering weights I just sent mine out to Will Peoples and had him hot melt to D6 like I do with all of my drivers and fairways. Thing is nasty long and super forgiving. I thought I flat out lost one off the heel on 18 this weekend and ended up 295 on the left hand side of the fairway. I expect to lose 20+ yards on those shots normally but this face is hot from virtually anywhere. Love it. Going to take something special in 2020 to kick it out of the bag.

    what a driver. at 9.5 I am a combination of long and accurate. I can launch it so high with such little spin. Yes been working on my swing but this beast rewards well,
    I will take it to 8.5* when i need even more distance lol. greedy. missing me LTD pro and LTD less and less.

    Whilst the F9 has been ok for me, the F9 Rickie 4 iron has been a revelation. Distance of a 2 iron with the height of a 4 iron. A lot more versatile than a traditional driving iron for me.

    Its pretty funny to go through this thread. Guys from June-July '19 that were foaming at the mouth about the F9. Now 4 months later according to their signature they are hitting something else. Lol

    Still gaming the F9. It's been a revelation this season in terms of long, straight bombs that just cancel out the advantage the longer hitters had over me. Sneaky long with this. New irons and wedges at the end of the year so I will continue with this in the bag. Such a well balanced club.

    I am still using the F9. Probably one of the most consistent drivers (also maybe finding the right shaft for my swing) I have hit in a long time. I will always try a new driver or two when they come out, but I plan to use this next season as well, until something else better comes along. This was probably my most CONSISTENT driving season ever. The only way I replace this driver is if I find something that is as accurate as this one is, plus 10 more yards of distance.

    The clubs in my signature are pretty much the same clubs I ended the year with but aren't the SAME clubs I ended the year with. Played last tournament Sept. 30th, traded my iE1's in for G400's and played them for two weeks. Didn't like them, sold them and bought another set of iE1's. Guy who bought the iE1's came back and bought my Glide ES58 so I then bought a Glide 2.0 ES58. Stupid thing is I cam out about $200 ahead when it was all said and done.
