  1. Matt Portland, OR I walk all rounds. I use the clicgear 3+
  2. Matt - Portland, OR Putting on the carpet at home Experienced 1 putting mat while in high school. It was lumpy and bumpy and had the unrealistic ramp up to the hole. Medium speed
  3. 1. Free 2. Club Champion - they normally charge but we're running a promotion 3. Yes, very happy with the results. Their 90 day fit guarantee is great. My new irons weren't giving me the same result on the course as they were in hitting bay. Went back and he helped make adjustments and it's going better.
  4. I can certainly understand them trying to not put in new shafts and help make the current ones work. I'm sure that's why he didn't want to share all options and just went with the tinker comment. If it works out and gets me to even a quarter of what it takes to play on LPGA, I'd be ecstatic. I always try to look at LPGA data and stats to compare my game to rather than as you call them the Beefy McBeefs. I certainly appreciate the extra work the fitter is putting in to cut my shafts and add tip weights. I hope to have them back by the weekend so I'll follow up again. I appreciate th comments and data. I'm not too far off on AoA, with my heavier 6 iron anyways.
  5. @Manimal26. Following up on the CC perfect fit guarantee. I was able to go in for my refit today. Brought my new fitted sticks and my old 6 iron since they use it for fittings. Fitter asked me to warm up and while doing so he took measurements of my two 6 irons. New fitted 6 iron (JPX 919 forged with Nippon NS Pro 950GH) was a D2 swing weight and old one (MP-54 with dynamic golf s300) was a D5. I explained i had been hitting a lot of chunks and toes and my backswing had gotten even longer (I already go past parallel with my old clubs) with my new clubs. As I was warming up, I asked him what my options were and I got the response "we're going to tinker." So I hit some shots with my new 6 iron and he said he was really going to being paying attention to swing path, angle of attack, and face to path. Maybe 1 or 2 others were in there too. After I hit my new 6 iron and my old 6 iron he noticed the biggest difference was in attack angle. New 6 iron was about -7 and old was about -5. Not sure what I should be at for a 6 iron but even with my driver I have a -2 to -3 AoA. Believe my swing speed with the 6 iron was about 88mph and I flying it about 175-180. He also noticed my new 6 iron was longer in length from club head to butt (and in distance a bit, but not important here). He then added some lead tape to the hosel of my 6 iron to test adding what more head weight would do. That brought my AoA back to about -5, what my old 6 iron was. Then he was quick to say he will cut down the shafts to what my old ones are and add in some tip weight to bring it to D5. All in all, it felt a bit like he was looking for the quick fix and I didn't really have a chance to explore other options. I could have been more vocal, but I'll give these a shot and he said to check back in with him after a few weeks with the new sticks to let him know how it's going and we can look again if we need to.
  6. Maybe give Nikon a try. I've had good experience with them. Bought a rangefinder from them about 6 years ago. After a little more than a year (past the warranty date) the eyepiece broke off and they sent me a brand new model to replace it.
  7. Sounds like you have a solid setup at your place. It has definitely opened up my eyes to the smaller, lesser known fitters and I'll definitely search more for my next fitting. I had an iron fitting at Club Champion this spring and it was a really good experience. That being said, I am headed back this week or next as the shafts have not been working out. I don't blame the fitter though. These shafts were the clear winner when I went in for my fitting. The problem may have been that it was early spring so I hadn't been playing as much. I'm interested to see what options I have with CC and their 90 day guarantee.
  8. You are truly a manimal. Unbelievable that you took the time analyze his swing. Poster of the year type stuff right there!
  9. Selling my Blast Golf unit. It's been a great tool especially for putting, but I no longer need it. The amount of data it provides is amazing. It's really fun playing around with all the features. $100 shipped.
  10. Took 6 weeks to get a putter from PXG. Was quoted 1 to 2 weeks which I knew was bogus.
  11. Fairly certain those shafts come at no upcharge from Mizuno. I was fitted for irons at Club Champion this spring and paid $875 for the Mizuno JPX 919 Forged (4 - PW). They were discounted since they are releasing the new JPX models later this summer/fall. You can go onto Mizuno's website and see the different shaft options. HMBs, would probably be closer to $1,300. If you're hitting those P790s that far, you might be able to save a bit by not getting the 4 iron or even the 5 iron. I had a great fitting experience at CC, but I never received my Trackman data which was a bit frustrating.
  12. What an absolute dream for a golfer! Can I cut off a body part for extra entries!?
  13. Think I may have discovered the problem this weekend. I took video of me with my new 95gram shafted 7 iron and my old 130gram shafted 7 iron. I already have too long of a backswing. The light shafts caused my backswing to get even longer, like John Daly long, and I think this is causing inconsistent strikes. The heavier shaft is still past parallel, but not absurdly so. Sent an email to my fitter to setup an appointment to get rechecked.
  14. 72 was the Sheep Ranch, the new course at Bandon Dunes, too! Pretty fun day! CC was offering free fittings and I got in on the reduced price for the JPX 919s before Mizuno stopped selling them so I got a pretty good deal on it all...as long as I can get the shafts figured out. I only asked to hit no upcharge shafts due to budget so they were built by Mizuno. CC doesn't carry any stock as far as I know. I'll have to do some more toying around with them and see if I can get used to em. If not, back to CC to see what else they can do!
