I've been trying to track down a fitter/golf shop somewhat near me and I finally found contact information for the guy and it's on a website for a company called Rational Golf. Everything about the system they propose seems very strange to me because they tout ideas like swing weights were made for wooden clubs and therefore irrelevant to modern golf clubs. It also seems like they are part of the single swing plane/one length iron school of thought. While I wait to hear back from the fitter to see if he's even still in business, has anyone out there ever been through a fitting with someone who adheres to this system? If so, what was it like? https://www.rational-golf.com/biomatch_report
Look there is a ton of confusing information out there about pured shafts and if it actually matters. If it did i would think that every tour player would have it done. I’ve seen claims of yardage increases and various other claims are there any truths to it?
I read a lot here on the Forum about clubs people own or want to buy. I'd say aside from the putter all I ever read about is guys buying TaylorMade, Callaway, Titleist, Cobra, Adams, Cleveland, Nike, Mizuno, Ping, etc. That leads me to think that most people buy what's in front of them. You can't walk into a typical golf retail store and find anything other than Major brand products. I rarely see guys in the Forum talk about or even say they use custom clubs such as KZG, Alpha, Maltby, Wishon, Bang, Miura, Fourteen, Epon, etc, etc. (These are not clones) I never hear anyone say they're even considering such a purchase. Why is that? I think part of it is because most people play off the rack (OTR). Perhaps it's because you don't think the quality is high. Could it be because most people don't want to spend the time to find and avail themselves of a custom club fitter? Taking the time to research and test custom designed clubs isn't as easy as walking into a Dick's or Golf Galaxy and plopping down some cash. Custom designed and fitted clubs can be expensive. But not always depending on the chosen brand. So, who plays custom brands?
