Are my driver launch /spin close to ideal?

Never was fit for my Rogue. I play it set at 8 degrees , PX Yellow stiff 63 gram ( 63 or 65 one of those ). Trackman numbers today I was launching around 13.2 ...spinning around 2200-2300. S.S. 101-103... Carry consistently in mid 240's total low 270's. Best swing of day was 253 carry 284 total . Smash ranged as low as 1.46 to high at 1.50. I didn't have ball speed que'd up unfortunately. This on trackman.

    Let's see, smash factor is ball speed divided by club head speed. We have the smash factor and club head speed so what if we multiply them? A swing speed of 102 with a smash of 1.50 will have a ball speed of 153.

    Yes. So ball speed sitting around 150 on average ...and AOA steady at +1.7 to +2

    For real world your numbers are very good......to get better trackman numbers, you can increase launch angle by 2-3 degrees and lower spin by 300. These will give you better trackman carry yards and total yards but for golf course numbers, I have better results with launch angle at 15-16 and a spin of 2100-2300.

    You are close to ideal, unnecessary to chase the minor changes suggested by previous poster, imo

    I think you'd be better served by first addressing the inconsistencies before trying to optimize the numbers. Those inconsistent results are usually a result of inconsistent face impact location. And face impact location will have a greater influence on the launch and spin numbers than anything else. Foot powder spray is a great tool for getting a true assessment of that face impact location and consistency - don't trust how the impact feels - especially with these nice big modern drivers with their large sweet spots.
