Hey all, I was struggling with some low drives this year so I decided to buy a 14° SLDR driver head for $75 on ebay just as an experiment. I made a video below on what seems to be good results!

Good experiment, but I think you need to run additional tests. Those spin numbers are high because of the loft of the driver and where you impact on the face.

Try this. Move the ball position forward by one ball width at a time from your current set up. Use your current R1 driver and see if launch goes up and spin goes down. This will change your angle of attack. If you start hitting more up on the ball, it will launch higher and reduce spin. Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau do this. They hit up.

I have been doing the opposite of you. I don’t have your swing speed,  but I want to launch higher and reduce spin. I have been playing the ball off my left big toe and I get great launch. I have also been lowering my driver loft, which also helps reduce spin.

Go to the site below and you can look at what the optimal launch and spin numbers are you your swing speed.
