When attached the weights to spots around 10 and 2 where the launchangle was least unpredictable, I added 12 grams total also at 10 and 2 (on top of the weights), the launchangle, speed and depth were constant again. This makes me believe that with higher swingweights, higher twistweights are needed to generate a constant spinrate across the face from 3 to 9.

Estimated final specs. 437grams, 39cm, sw.600+, so not very playable obviously.
Interesting findings John. Maybe there is some optimal ratio of swingweight/hittingweight and twistweight. But yeah, 600 swingweight won't work for play, but you might be onto something.
