My iron fitting involved looking at smash factor, launch angle and angle of descent to name but a few.
Surely a combination of those figures (and others) gives a decent idea of ball flight the each set up is giving?
You seem to be describing a 15 minute Drummond driver "fitting" in your post above"
My experience at Mizuno's office was certainly more in depth than that.
Yes you're right I was picking on the typical driver fitting from one of the retailers.
Don't get me wrong, I believe that the use of computer driven fittings is a great way to get the right starting point to head forward but it's only one part.
Post up your fitting numbers if you still have them ?
From your iron fitting numbers it would be ok to guess at the shaft flex, kick point, shaft material, weight, clubhead design, loft and lie angles ?
Should I estimate the overall length of the clubs, either longer or shorter, maybe just stick with the standard Mizuno length ?
Which is shorter than some of the other OEM.
How about the grip size, colour, texture and weight or just suggest the standard fare ? How about the swingweight or balance of your new clubs, if I've made them longer, shorter or even standard will they feel correct during your swing to help your tempo and rhythm, either to heavy or girly light ? Typically lie and loft has been tested by hitting a 6 iron and then gauging the entire set of irons on that one club. I think that you won't swing your 4, 6 and pw all the same, so how'd they evaluate the lie angles ?
( Are Mizuno still using the 3 swing evaluation thingy that clips to the shaft and that gives them the answers, interesting ? )
Reading the numbers is just one part of the whole fit !
