Spent a bit of time reading through this thread, noticed some people made a lot of posts about how positive the experience was etc. For example Bernie Larkham had a lot of good things to say, but looking at the golflink in the sig the handicap has gone from 5 out to 9 since the new bats. There were other people who had good things to say and others who were less than impressed.

I do wonder how broad the knowledge is of the "clubfitters" that work there, seems like the Sydney location is far more experienced. Did people feel like the fitter was simply reading numbers or actually assessing variables in the clients swing?

Like someone mentioned being offered to have their current irons reshafted with KBS tours at a cost of $800, assuming 4-pw that's crazy pills, way over rrp plus labor costs. Interested to know what they charged people for their own labor per club?

As the last post was quite some time ago, has anyone that went in and seen them had buyers remorse, or alternatively found the experience to have been one that has seen improvement in a certain area, and still uses whatever setup they were fit into?

Asking as I'm going in there primarily to get some trackman details, something I have never done so it will be good info to have, but potentially make a purchase as most of my clubs are quite outdated. Certainly if I'm quoted $120 for a nippon or kbs shaft I'll most definitely source my own gear though.


Technically $800 is about right for a set of irons if u are paying full retail for everything.

KBS Shafts $50-60each
Grips $10-20 each
Club build including swing weight $10-20 each.
Loft and lies $5-10 each.

Add all that up it's about $800.

I personally wouldn't pay that but I know how to build my own clubs and can source secondhand equipment. If don't then I would suggest buy a set complete from retailer and hope the manufacturer can build it to the specs u have asked for.

Club fittings are good to get basic numbers and a good source of information, but it's applying that information.

Also all club fittings not matter how good they are are artificial cos they can not replicate competition conditions. Driver fittings are the worse as on the course u never hit driver after driver, depending on the course u play it could be 30-45mins between.

A lot cheaper ways to go about getting track man numbers than paying for a session at Pureform

I didn't know there was an abundance of dirt cheap places that offer Trackman and the ability to hit a whole bunch of different head/shaft setups, I guess in my 3 years not playing things have changed. 

Thanks for the suggestions  :lol:

I haven’t heard the “weighed our glue” since HG told me that years ago.

Can I ask if he mentioned who their founder was?

I thought he was going to say L. Ron Hubbard but it was someone else, someone Jenner? I wasn't really listening, more like trying my hardest to formulate an escape plan as I'm almost certain I saw a very deep freezer and some "ornamental" meat hooks.

At least find my phone was turned on and hidden away deep in my golf bag.

Fortunately someone else arrived, for a pureform tattoo I believe and I was able to escape.

I love my irons and don't want to change them 
But have often thought about the advantage in having them fitted to suit me. 
I bough them as heads only of eBay about 7 years ago rang the maker with the serial No. and they checked out as originals.
Then bought shafts from Pro sticks America eBay also.
When they arrived I glued the heads and grips together with the spine mark at 9 o'clock.
I wonder if it was dum luck that I play well with them or would I play better if pulled apart and had a professional club fitter do the job in a lab?

Sometimes with golf gear the less you know the better as a player.

It can do your head in when you start fiddling around, but it can be fun.

The SST puring method and the spine orientation that they use is still being debated by HG. They dissolved their business partnership because one said the prominent spine should be placed at 9 o'clock and the other said it needed to be at 12 o'clock.

I think you have put the " spine " into the wrong position, for what it's worth !

Fark there must be something wrong with me cos I agree with FatPrick again. 

 

You can have all the specs in the world and sometimes clubs just work cos you things it looks good ;)

Hi Rob 
Am I right to assume  If I went to Pureform golf 
And purchased a new driver from them, they would go through my bag and fits all my clubs?
I no nothing about the fitting process or Pureform golf

GOOD ol HG, i honestly think tjey were on the right track and had some goid ideas they were just overpriced and they had no marketing, hard to compete with the big boys who pay players to play their gear, even Nike pulled the pin.

Godd to see Hogan coming back in an online method.
