Do you recommend making hosel adjustments or moving the weight to promote a draw or fade?

    Hosel adjustment only closes or opens the clubface on address. Technically the weight would be more beneficial to the actual swing.

    Draw setting makes club more upright toe in air more. Thus promoting a draw.
    Lower degrees makes face open .5-.75 degrees roughly
    Higher degree closes face about .5- .75 degrees

    Gbb epic subzero has 2.5 degree roughly open face with all settings in neutral and stated loft.

    Gbb epic has around 1-1.5 open face

    I called Callaway for my own settings and advice.

    Thanks for the info and the thread, I’m new the Callaway optifit myself, just picked up a GBB Epic. For you fitters out there, under what conditions would you make a face angle adjustment? To affect the start line? Then use lie angle and weight position to affect side spin, based on...what? OTT delivery = upright/draw setting; inside = flat? Shift the weight to heel for toe strikes, to toe for heel strikes? Just trying to grasp all the factors involved, thanks in advance.
