  1. Blair / Winnipeg, MB Canada Standard Adidas (unlined) rain gear. Has to be horizontal rain, I walk with a 4 wheel bag boy push cart. When its vertical rain the umbrella helps a bit but once the wind picks up and its a horizontal rain that umbrella is a joke. Up here in 1 day you can have rain, snow and then be wearing shorts for the last few holes.

  3. Guess it would also depend if this was a 1 time project or something you were looking to do regularly until you figured out which grip you liked ($$$). https://www.golfworks.ca/pressurized-golf-grip-remover/p/GS6/ This remover works well, you could also use it with an air compressor, but it will remove the grip safely on its own, ready to use again, in like 10 seconds.

  5. Interesting topic...I use tip weights in building a set to get a specific swing weight, either for consistency in the set progression or to MOI it to a set SW for all clubs. But I wouldn't think of it as changing/potentially changing the flight characteristic of a swing...allowing a player to achieve the best swing he/she can...yes. I use lead tape in the fitting process to determine what gives the player the best feel/feedback from his/her swing. I'm not sure if the placement of the lead tape would alter the flight characteristic of a swing...I'll accept if someone says it does (same as if you adjust weights on a Cure putter it will increase/decrease the toe movement) but I would be doubtful that a strip or 2 (under 10g) would be that much of a difference. As to the 'pouring shot down the shaft' I have done that with putters, used a cork and epoxy to hold it in place, but for me...I think I would avoid it in a iron/wood. When you pack it (so to speak) to avoid the 'swish' sound it would make going up and down the shaft; I would assume you have altered the strength/flex of that point of the shaft...good if thats what you wanted to do, but not so good if it alters the feel from the fitting to the finished product. Be interested to read some more opinions.
  6. In a similar boat, the only major store near me is a retail chain...I asked a few questions and the guy that was doing the 'fitting' had no clue what I was talking about. Salesman playing fitter, no thank you. I've done some reading (as we all have) and have a swing talk which gives me some details, I build my own clubs so its easy enough to mess around. But the biggest issue is that I don't want to waste a fitters time, I would feel guilty about the fact that I am not looking for him to build the set, just do a fitting so I know the numbers/information I need; then I can build it myself.
  7. I keep the spec's on all the fittings I do, not just the person's data (wrist to floor, etc) but also from the trip to the range (swing speeds/launch angles) to the spec's on the set (length/weight/swing weight/shaft flex sorting/components used/etc) so if they wanted a set built and there had not been any drastic difference in the individuals game, I could do it without their involvement, no problem.
