  1. Hi guys, Just wanted you guys to know that i have chosen not to get fitted at least for now. The main reason is that i needed to buy irons and the fitting would take away some of the money on the irons budget. I've chosen to get fitted later. I'll do a WIMB soon.. thanks to all!
  2. I It turned out to be pretty good to you.. I think i'll go with game improvement or super game improvement irons but it's only because i think that there is so much offer that is almost impossible to not have something that suits my eye in this categories.. i agree with you, clubs are expensive so you should love your irons and the way they look! I intend to get a set that i love but also gives me confidence that i have the right specs dialed in as best as possible. I also am eager to receive another opinion (by the fitter) on my swing. Mainly the feedback i have is given by my instructor and sometimes it's good to listen to another person, different ideas and ways of communicating Thanks man
  3. But i need to buy irons (sold my old ones).. wouldn't you agree that it would be a good idea to get fitted before i buy them? Keep in mind that i told tony i don't intend to get better through equipment but through lessons and practice.. Thanks
  4. We have pretty similar views on how we look at golf and improving our games... My objective is not to get a lot better through equipment... I've always tought that the main reason would be the lessons and practice.. I need to buy some irons and i think the best would be to get the ones that are suited best for me as i do not intend to buy other ones for a while.. I'll go with an open mind and listen to the opinion of the fitter as to which clubs i should have in my bag is concerned. I don't have access to launch monitors on a regular bases but i'll take your recommendation and go to a driving range that has them or a top tracer.. Thanks!
  5. Yeah .. i'm glad you have access to GC Quad and gear! That's pretty awesome. I agree with you, knowledge is key! And i've been improving on that (as i said, been playing for not long). Mygolfspy helps with that as the content that i watch on youtube and research on the internet does also. I think in my case, the knowledge that you mention will help me to enjoy and understand my fitting better. Thanks.
  6. Seems like on your first experience your fitter/salesman had preconceived ideas and bias. Hopefully i'll get the second one. A pro that just looks at data and knows what to get out of me with his professional experience. My main objective at this point is the same as yours was. Get some irons with shaft, lies and head specs that hopefully are the best for me at this point. You mentioned the confidence that you leave that fitting with! I think that's a real thing! And an objective as well.. To "know" that you have the right "weapons". Mainly to narrow it all to me and my work alone. Thanks
  7. Yeah the closest i've gotten to a free fitting are the golf lessons that i have. But still we don't have access to launch monitors so it's not data driven. My swing is all over the place still so i'm curious to see how that will impact my fitting process. Main objective is to get opinions on shaft flex and lenght, lie angles and iron type. That to buy my irons. Man, wish you the best of luck with your True Spec fitting. By @jlukes experience it seems to be such a great facility! let us know how it went as i'll do with mine. Thanks.
  8. Thanks for sharing your experience! From what i read it's seem it was such a nice journey and process throughout.. I'll be fitted with a local professional here at Portugal. I don't have access to those you've recommended. From what i see you're a very low handicaper and i find it fascinating how a fitting experience can be so different for so many different people and still very positive to all. I liked that your fitter (obviously one of the best as you've mentioned) didn't even bother messing with what you had great in your bag and game (top of the bag). My objective is that this fitting gets me started in therms of shaft flex, lie angles (i'm relatively short), grip size and iron head type (probably a chunkier type because i need the help). Thanks man.
  9. Hi guys, I started playing about 1 year and 4 months ago. I'm taking lessons and currently am a 33.5 handicaper. I was looking to get fitted once i lowered my handicap a little. Recently i had surgery on my knee and as i recovery i find it suitable to get fitted as soon as i'm ok. Just wanted to know from you guys how were your first fitting experiences? Did you came out happy and really fullfilled? Any bad experiences? Did you get a clear idea of which clubs you should buy? Learned anything about your swing that helped you along the way? Hope to "hear" from you guys! Thanks.

  12. Great suggestions guys! Thank you! As i think i've mentioned i'm a high handicaper and i've started to play golf almost nine months ago so not a long time ago. I already have about 12 clubs in the bag and the main criterias at this point were cost (budget is a little tight around here) need and looks. I've tried to buy when good opportunities appeared (of course i would for opinions and reviews online before). I think my irons were a steal! 120€ for mizuno jpx900 forged 9 iron+4 iron mp fli hi and 5 to pw (without 9) jpx850 forged! I think my putter was where i spent a little bit more. I think i'll try to get fitted at some point just to get my specs right as you guys have mentioned! But it's hard for me to think that i would gain a lot with a fit without having a good and consistent game and swing already. Your thoughts about this last part??? Thanks again guys.
  13. Hi guys, I wanted to put up a question here just to see what you guys think. In my case, i'm a high handicaper but i'll put up the question generally.. If you can't be fitted for any reason (not having a fitter near you or any other reason) and can't try the clubs before you buy them what would you think should be the main criteria(s) for you to consider before you buy new clubs/replace your own. Because without being fitted or try it there's always a risk. thanks.
