Its amazing the changes I see (for the good) when every 3-4 years I look at or shop for a driver. But one thing I never really understood is the face height. The last time I shopped for one, it was all about the shallower face (ie SQ 5900, MX700) and before that, it was all about the deeper faces (Launcher 460 type heads). Now it seems like its back to deeper faces.
I'm just trying to gain a better understanding as to why the back and forth. I think I know the basic concept that deeper faces lower traj and shallower face higher traj. From what it seems, most are going after a higher launch, lower spin results. So wouldn't a shallower face achieve that a little easier? I know I'm way off base somewhere that's why I'd to see if anyone can chime in on it.
Also, I've been told a lot of things from sales staffs that I'm not sure if its true or not. I was told that deeper face tend to hit fades easier whereas shallower or slightly wider faces are easier to hit a draw. But a few years back when all the clubs out there had shallower faces, I was told the opposite.
