I want Mat's swing.

 

Last month I was in Canada but on the west coast province of B.C.

I was wondering what it would cost to fly over to TXG's facility and have a fitting. Then I remembered they don't do Cobra ( I am a 1 length player) and it was 28 degrees below zero, so I stayed in my hotel room and watched golf channel instead.

Be honest..

Was it the lack of cobra clubs or the temperature that kept you from traveling to see them?

-28 ... Brrrr, dats cold out there!

  It would have been my wife's protests. 4 hour bus ride out of the Rockies to Calgary, a 6 hour flight over to the East coast and spending even more money on golf, not to mention cutting short our ski holiday!

I know when I am defeated. I still want Mat's swing.

i have always been curious about the Mizuno swing optimizer. The TXG folks tried it out...have a look here

FB, the optimizer is driven by the big 4 shaft companies. Every fitting will always throw up one of their shafts eg: KBS, Nippon ( & or a Modus ) TT or PX !

hmm, i always view manufacturers' claims with a healthy dose of skepticism, but not convinced that the optimizer 'driven by the big 4 shaft companies'. The device will be a great addition to a club fitter/maker's toolset, as it gives you a great starting point. Not every club fitter will have the 1000's of shafts in their shop to 'try'. One of the key advantages i see is that the device looks to measure dynamic lie angle. It's just something that the average fitter cannot do.

 

Some fitters might be so skilled that they can gauge release, tempo, lie angle etc, but most don't. Personally, I think this demystify the factors to help you get the best clubs in a timely manner. Most golfers don't try out different clubs every week for a long period of time. Just my opinion but i don't think its very time efficient.

I agree about the data gained from the optimizer and it is a great starting point. The main thrust of the optimizer is simply to pick a shaft that fits you and then is the data used, NOT !
Remember one thing, you are still dealing with a retailer !

Sort of. You can see the software translate that into and other input to suggest a set setup incl lie angle. That's the critical part and avoids conjecture on the part of the fitter. As a fitter yourself, i am not sure why you wouldn't want to add that to your toolbox Jon? 
 

Ultimately, your average customers will get a better, more consistent outcome when they do visit a retailer. I believe that's the main thrust...

I've used the Muzuno shaft optimiser in two separate fittings.
One was via a fitting cart at Royal Melbourne and one was at Mizuno's Melbourne office.

No retailer was involved in either fitting session.
It's an excellent starting point and you can still choose to hit one of the multitude of other shaft options in Mizuno's fitting cart.
All of which incur no upcharge.

Even if you did a fitting at a bricks and mortar shop, that zero upcharge also means there's nothing in it for a retailer to push any particular shaft anyway.

I agree and I also had a positive experience with the Mizuno Shaft Opimizer. Unfortunately it doesn’t help someone with a lack of ability like myself.

There is always one shot late in the round that brings you back the next week full of hope.
