This adaptor does not actually change the loft it effectively changes the loft by the face angle changes. It can be adjusted from 3 degrees closed to 3 degrees open. If you have the 9.5 degree driver and you change the setting from Neutral to 1 degree closed. The effective loft would now be 10.5 degree. Closing the face 1 degree makes the driver play like it has 1 degree more loft. We reference the loft in a square position and if it is 1 degree closed at 9.5 degrees and we open the face to a square position the loft would now measure 10.5 degrees. The same is true with an open face position. It the face is opened 1 degree from square or neutral and the loft is 9.5 degrees it would now play like it has 8.5 degrees loft. Closing the face 3 degrees would make the driver play like it has 3 degrees more loft and opening the face 3 degrees would make the driver play like it has 6.5 degrees loft. Assuming 9.5 degrees as standard.
