  1. First time I had heard of Truespec was back when @jlukes won a fitting and posted about it. Since then, I immediately followed them on Instagram and would cheekily reply to their new location posts with a comment like "Oahu when?" In 2020, when we were planning our honeymoon, we decided to go to California to go to Disneyland and stuff, and I booked a fitting at Truespec Beverly Hills. Then C19 hit and the plans got cancelled. Fast forward to today (and probably 10-15 more comments on IG begging them to come, even tagging local courses so they could get exposure and maybe entice them a little) Truespec Oahu has finally opened. I immediately had to put my money where my mouth was now that they finally made it out here, so I booked a fitting. Much to my delight and surprise, I know the fitter who was hired there and have been fit by her in the past! I've been wanting to try graphite iron shafts for a while now. Not that there's much wrong with my current set, but just to preserve my wrists since they're not in great shape from years of skateboarding when I was younger, working at a computer all day, and obviously golf. The problem was, I couldn't find a spot locally that would be anything more than like an OEM+ fitting AT BEST, if the OEM carried a graphite shaft on their cart by chance. I hadn't played graphite iron shafts since I was a junior (I'm 36 now) and any time I've randomly tried them, they felt overly light and like I couldn't feel the head at all. Not necessarily boardy, just... dead? I'll spare you the deep-dive into the details since everyone knows by now what goes on at places like Truespec and TxG, but I got to try a variety of heads and shafts. I remember thinking between club tweaks how great it is to finally have something like this locally, and it felt every bit as dreamy as I had imagined it would when I finally got the custom fit I was craving for however long it has been since I read the original thread. Also for whatever reason I suck at hitting into nets/screens so it was nice that the fitting was outdoor, so I can see the ball flights changing between club/shaft tweaks. Tried a variety of heads, with the Mizuno and TM's being the ones I asked to specifically try: Mizuno: 223, 225 Taylormade: P770 Callaway Apex Pro Ping i59, i525 In a few different shafts: Mitsubishi OTi 105 KBS TGI Tour 100 UST Mamiya Recoil 95 Steelfiber i95 It was really, really close between the i59 and the Mizuno 223, but in the end the i59 just felt like the faces were too hot. Very interesting that they were so close in numbers considering the Mizuno are lower lofted by 2* I went in thinking all I would gain were the benefits of graphite on my wrists, but found out that my 919 Forged weren't spinning enough, especially (duh) on mishits. The 223's were still spinning on poor strikes and my average carry went up, with a smaller standard deviation -- which is huge for me right now since I'm not playing as much as I used to. I'll definitely be back, probably to swing an Autoflex at some point
  2. I went to TrueSpec for a club fitting about 2 months ago. I'm a typical 13 index but have flashes of being able to get to a 10 index. I've always had the same issues, very low ball flight and fairly high landing dispersion. Sometimes I can control it, most times I can't. I decided to go to TrueSpec and had a fantastic experience. I wrote a review of this process back in late April on another thread. The result is that I choose to spend a ridiculous amount of money on the Titeilist CP-04 irons with Mitsubishi shafts. The data from all my swings at TrueSpec was very clear. The CP-04 flew much higher and had a very tight distribution. Now that I finally have them (different issue), I can say definitively that for me, these were the perfect choice. I went from averaging 2 - 3 GIRs, to now 7-8 GIR per round. The distance is slightly better and only seems to be different as I get to the shorter irons. My 9 iron goes about 5-10 yards longer, was 130 and now closer to 140. I didn't buy these for the distance, I bought them for the flight and dispersion. Without question, they've improved my game. The most surprising thing to me is that they perform the exact same on the course that they did in the TrueSpec studio. I went in thinking I would buy another set of Mizuno or maybe Callaway irons. But the data was so obvious, I couldn't ignore it. I struggled with the cost, the heads were $500.00 each and the shafts were $180.00...just stupid. But hey, I just retired and I'm playing more golf. My swing isn't going to change at 62 so I decided to see if I could "buy" a better game. I've read a number of reviews and the clubs get dinged for the cost, and they should. Other folks complain about the "game improvement" type of irons that these are, but hey, who cares. All I wanted were results. The heads have a classic look and aren't too big or bulky. TrueSpec did a great job building them up because I can feel the balance in the club and shaft. If you can afford these, I'd highly recommend them. The results speak for themselves. My first couple of real rounds with them were 82, 84 on a course I play frequently. I know the distances each of my previous clubs went to and can see these results. Happy to answer questions.
