Just won a TR20 and was concerned about trying to "fit it" to beat my gamer.  Hit some at PGA Superstore, but they just don't have the options right for me.  I felt I need a little head weight and stiffer shaft.  Would love to discuss with you a bit if avail?  Also on the weights, I also think I would benefit from a little more up front and maybe some on the toe (fight the hooks).  Don't see any options to purchase them.  Have some demo's I can try out :).  

Happy to discuss with you. Shoot me an email whenever convenient: prestontoulon@honmagolf.com

Wow, congrats! I also hit some at the PGA store before and after mine came in, and agree that the stock shaft isn't for me, but the upgraded Vizard shafts available through Honma is great. I hit it well and liked it before, but having the weight kit and being able to put a 15g up front is huge for me.  I've thought about trying other weights in other positions instead of the 3g, but I like the way it's working now. 

Since there isn't a toe weight option(other than lead tape), maybe the heavier front/back weights would counter balance the lighter heel weight to give you the feel you want. Maybe @PrestonAtHonma can give you some insight on the weight options, but I would say to try every possible configuration to get the numbers dialed in.

There haven't been any comments in a couple weeks, but wanted to update and let you know I'm still hitting bombs.

Played in a tournament this weekend and drove a couple par 4's for easy 2 putt birdies.  One of them flew 320 over trouble and stuck on the green.

Not sure what the letters stand for, but the H corresponds with the CL positions, so think that would be closed, and the S w/ the OP position, which would be open

S - slice, H - hook would be my guess.

I finally spent some time with the TR20 in a bay with GC Hawk.  While not all the features were turned on, it was great to gather some data.  Initial thoughts were it sounds great, and has a great feel off the face.  At D2.5 its a little light for my liking and can't really feel it.  I bought some lead tape to simulate putting a heavier weight up front, surprisingly that increased my spin numbers but also helped with the snappy lefts.  Unfortunately, I couldn't seem to get the ball speed and carry numbers up there with my current TM M5.  Did some adjustments, hit a bunch of balls and even messed around with the TSi3 (which didn't outshine the TM M5, but did seem like it could be a little more reliable overall).  I will mess around with the TR20 some more and try to get it outside and on course.  Numbers below are summaries, open to any questions or dive deeper into numbers if anyone interested.
