Have you got your kit yet?

 

I'm going in on Sat to have a looksee with a voucher I received..

Arrive some time tomorrow from Sydney. They build them all up there. They got a lot of the stock from US that they cant get here also I think....)

 

I'll try and take some snaps. The guy in Sydney reckons they're pretty sharp looking set (he would though right...)

Bernie, had you ever had a fitting previously? Can you compare any of the different types?

Itchy I think I've had 3 different types of fittings, use that term a little loosely.

First was to have my old callaway x16s checked out at TGP. Garth checked lies and basically said to get better look for forged head like mp52 and a stiff shaft. It was better than what I had but not terribly scientific or thorough but was next to nothing cost wise.

Second was my first live exposure to trackman with Brook Salmon at a titleist fitting day for me driver. Obviously there are limitations with only titty kit to choose from. I knew then trackman fitting was a must au some stage.

Pure form was fast and away the most thorough and first off any real cost, both time and money.

After that session I have come to the conclusion you can't fit properly without track man. You just can't unless you are happy to guess a heck of a lot of things.

How can you judge ball flight, spin, distance, launch angle etc without it? Quite simply you can't do it, it's impossible.

So when I see people recommending this fitter or that fitter and hear their stories I tend to shudder a little. But then you don't know what you don't know.

If you can do a full bag for 199 just do it, you'll love it. You don't have to buy, they are not cheap but you will have all the specs you need to try and have it built yourself if you wish.

did you know there is a trackman fitting facility at PGA learning centre in Sandhurst.

I recently did a Trackman fiiting there comparing two driver shafts.

 

Bernei is correct, need to see what bal spin islanch angle etc as wel las just distance.

On Trackman there is a featrue called Optimizer and it tells you via a little graph when the club is tuned to best for your swing.

 

definitely worth a go. They also have a SAM putter lab as well.

 

send me a pm if you need number of the centre.

Been reading up on Pureing of shafts and there's a lot of arguments both for and against. What are peoples thoughts on Pureing shafts? is it worth the extra coin? How much difference does it make if any? And when they fit you is it a pured shaft your using or just a regular shaft?

I did a fitting at Pureform a little while ago.  They offer a money back guarantee that if the clubs they make for you, don't perform the same as when you were fitted, you can get your money back.  The proviso is that you must have the clubs assembled by them and that would include puring.

 

I think the whole puring thing is rubbish as any differences would be so tiny that I doubt anyone would be able to tell even the slightest difference.

I'm a believer in flo and for a few extra bucks why not take out another variable that can have a negative impact on your shoot.

So do they give you the results after hitting a pured club and a un pured club of theirs so you can see the difference it makes or do you just take their word?
