Great write up @tchat07 , thanks for sharing! crazy how different it can be.
I've done lessons and iron fitting at GolfTec and a putter fitting at CC with good results on both. The GolfTec fitting occurred after a batch of lesson and got me into my previous clubs, Mizuno JPX 800 PRO with KBS Tour X-stiff Soft stepped 1x, which i ended up purchasing used and building myself to my needed specs.
The SAM-LAB putter fitting at CC recommended a mallet, but since I play a 385g wide body blade, the fitter just made a loft/lie corrections to it, as well as my another putter i had without trying to talk me into a new putter, and I can roll it sooo much better now.
I think the CC fitting is very fitter specific as when i talked to my putter fitter, he mentioned that CC can do anything available on any OEM website, and if someone needs to try to fit a budget, they can work with that. I won a free Driver fitting at CC through instagram which i'll make use of later this year, and they will let me pay just the $50 difference to upgrade it to a long game fitting, which will include fitting for a FW and hybrid or driving iron. Going in , I plan to be honest and tell them my budget, and I personally I have no issue saying that I can only afford to look at the shafts that are the stock offerings or even looking at previous models and possibly upgrading the shaft to meet my budget ( hell, even Rickie went back to his F9 driver recently and they'e only $250 new from Cobra right now). I know that it will limit me somewhat, but i'm going for what gets me the most consistency and tightest dispersion, and I'm willing to give up 10 yards to get it.
