So I'm wondering if there is a correlation between the swing plane and your dynamic loft. Just tinkering with my swing, I've noticed the more vertical I become (which is a more "out to in" for me) I lose some distance and feel like it's harder to strike the ball consistently. The more I "flatten" my swing out, the better (more consistent)  my ballstriking is with a bit more distance.

So my question is, Is this due to a "natural" increase in dynamic loft, or is it just something I've created in my ever changing swing?

If I understand you right, you're talking about the steepness of the downswing plane, as opposed to any backswing portion.

If so, this video talks about how the forces (lots of physics!) align to help you square the club when coming from a proper direction (what you are calling shallow I think).

And when the club comes from a steep angle, you are simply fighting physics and having to do crazy manipulations to get the club on the ball.

It's quite long and detailed but I'm curious if you find this relevant or way off target for your question

Having never seen your swing, this is just a shot in the dark, but you may be talking more about lie than loft. The lie of your clubs, at least the irons, will work best with one particular swing plane provided that they are all the same.

This is what I'm talking about for the most part. It explains why I feel more natural when I swing below the plane on the downswing and have better contact. I think it helps me keep my hands ahead of the ball as well on the strike.

• Yea, you’re right. I just looked at my settings on the app, it’s on indoors.
• I could also weaken the AW to 52° as well. I’m hoping to make my 15 clubs, 14 for tournaments this summer (hopefully we can have them by then).    Could be one of the long clubs could be one of the short ones. I’ve read 4-iron, 3-iron, and 2-iron I still haven’t figured it out it may be as simple as playing a few rounds and seeing which club I don’t use or need.
• More grip work;  placing hands carefully on the club, slow swing back, on downswing checking positions at A5 and A6, seeing that the clubface isn't anywhere near as bad as it was a few days ago, to impact, rewind to A6, then forward to hit.  Off a mat, into a net, combination of whiffle foam and real golf balls.  6-iron.  Really aching to get back to the other COVID drills from Erik but I felt this was a priority.
• Awesome. As someone named Frank, I approve. My most recent purchase was the neat new LSW vid series. I'll comment on the proper topic once I see them all. Before that it was a 3W to potentially replace my 4W, and a couple of wedges to match my recent iron purchase (735.CMs).
