Although the shots were 1/4" towards the toe the strikes felt really good, and I said all I need to do was flatten them because of scuff marks near the heel. They said the limit at the TM factory was only 1.5 degrees or so. My Mizunos are all flat 3 degrees, and that appears to be where I like them. I'm not short, 5'10.5", but for some reason my arms dangle low to the ground because of my longer wingspan.
Needlessly said, that was disappointing. This is the main reason I don't use my Burners.
Has anyone tried to flatten them? If so, was 1.5 degrees enough?
Just a reminder that you need to look at actual lie angles of different sets and not just go by relative terms. Just because you flatten Mizunos by 3* doesn't necessarily mean TM's will require the same adjustment to get to whatever lie angle you like. (You probably already knew that though)
Also, I always find it interesting that everybody gets their clubs adjusted uniformly, because for whatever reason, the guy that fit me didn't do that. For example:
My 4 iron is 1 1/4" longer than and 3* upright from a standard (black dot) 4 iron, my 8 iron is also 1 1/4" longer but only 2* upright, and my gap wedge is only 1" longer and 2* upright. LW is only 1 inch longer and 1.5* up.
