Driver Lie

I'm disappointed that when one changes the lie adjustment on the 913D2 or D3, the face angle changes also. I would prefer a 1deg flat 913D2 (8.5deg loft) with a neutral/square face angle. I'm under the impression that I can't get that. Lies & lofts seem  not to be mutually exclusive. ???

Hi David,  The lie angle can be changed independently from the loft/face angle.  Our standard face angle is.5 open.  You can set your 8.5° driver at B1 (RH) and that means it is standard loft (8.5°), standard face angle (.5 open) and .75 flat.  There is no change to loft or face angle.

Cathi, and at a later, if I wanted to maintain my loft of 8.5 and my lie of .75 flat ... but I would want to close the Clubface 1 degree, how would I make that adjustment?  David L.

The loft/face angle are intertwined.  You can move the setting to C4 and that will maintain your lie angle at .75 flat, and close the face to .5°, but will increase the loft to 9.25°. 
 
If you want a closed clubface at a lower loft, you would have to use a lower loft.  ie take a 7.5° and move it to C4 so you would have it .75 flat, face .5 closed and loft 8.25° or B4, which will be .75 flat, face 1.5 closed and loft 9°.
 
Raising the loft will effectively close the clubface and lowering the loft will effectively open the face angle.  The lie angle will (in general) have more to do with ball direction than the face angle of  .75° or 1.5°.
