OG, did they give you an ETA on when you would get your driver? Just wondering if you walked out of CC with the head and you are just waiting on the shaft from the bay?

 

I was going to purchase it at Club Champion however Dick's had a Veterans coupon (Ping for Military ) for $30.00. Plus I had some stuff to trade in so I already have the club. I ordered the custom shaft and it should arrive soon. I hit the G400 Max yesterday and let me tell, that Dawg will HUNT! And that's with the stock shaft.

I was notified today that I won a Club Champion fitting!  I will be going to the one in Atlanta and once I go thorough this experience, I will post my thoughts in this thread.    

My Club Champion Fitting on 4/16/2018   When I arrived today I was greeted with a warm welcome. Rob Anderson took care of my fitting session, who I later discovered was the Regional Sales Director

Well I went in for my iron/putter fitting today and I have to say I was quite surprised.   First the putter fitting...I rolled the 7 balls and made 6 of them. There's a contraption on the shaft to

Congrats :) Just wondering how long they (Ping) take since my local shop couldn't give me an ETA other than "up to 2 weeks." I want my new toys already!

It's a fantastic driver for sure. Can't wait until you get your shaft to put in it.

I'm looking forward to your take.  If you receive the same reaction I did, you will be blown away.   I'm so glad I had a driver fitting and got to hit all the heads with different shafts.  It was magic for me.

My fitter doesn't have the G400 max so I'm SoL, it's the only shop I know of that has multiple aftermarket shafts on island.

 

I hit it at a demo day and while they didn't have a trackman, I'm less concerned about a few RPMs nowdays. I was super "into" it at the beginning of my return to golf but now that I'm playing at least 9 holes every week, I know what works for me on course, and that's what is important. I liked what I saw at the range, hopefully it does the same on course.

Not directly related to OG's quest, but had a fitting at a Club Champion near me this afternoon. Second time I've been there, and second fitter I've worked with, but both experiences were excellent and well worth it and both fitters were really nice guys .. polite, helpful, encouraging, patient and happy to answer questions.

 

If all their locations are anything like this one then I can safely recommend them!

Not to be the debbie-downer of the thread, but I had a crummy experience at the CC that recently opened in my neck of the woods back in February. It kicked off terribly rough, the fitter was running late so I was left sitting twiddling my thumbs for 30 minutes, he then totally forgot I was a lefty and had to then spend another 10 mins getting it all reset. Once we got going it was normal, hit-check the #s-hit again routine, going just fine, until...the phone rang while I was trying out the second shaft of the afternoon. From there on out he played secretary taking every call booking new future appointments with other customers all while trying to conduct my fitting at the same time. He took at least 4x 5+ minute calls and talked for one walk-in person all while I was in the bay trying to focus. Whenever I tried to ask a question he would just give me a one-word answer and turn his attention back to the phone. It was crazy distracting/annoying. After the fitting time was up he gave me a print out of what he recommended then put on a super hard sell on for 5 minutes or so before the phone rang again. I couldn't even get his attention again to shake his hand so I just walked out. The cherry on top was that he forgot to send me all the trackman data so I had to email him to get him to do that. In the end it was a waste of my time and $. 

 

Coming back to edit in the happy ending to the story: After speaking with an employee of another local golf shop about my experience at CC, they offered to give me a heavily discounted fitting to confirm what was recommended to me was indeed the best fit. In the end, the club model, Apex Pros were the same as CC's pick, but the shafts were nowhere near being close to the best option. Maybe the guy at CC was just having a really off day when I was there, but if someone is spending good money to get hard data before making a big purchase on clubs you should be giving all your attention to that one customer, not doing your office work at the same time.

Not a downer post. I am sure some locations are better than others and people have bad days. Great feedback on your experience and I would agree that you didn't get the proper attention.

Might have been worth it to reach out to the manager and share your experience.... especially since they are new in town and word of mouth is huge in their business.

Cool of the other place to offer that deal to you.

Yea I would definitely touch base with management to let them know that sort of thing is not acceptable.  Most likely they would offer you another service with a different fitter.

Unfortunately the guy doing my fitting was the manager of the location. I did plan on giving him some honest feedback on how I felt about it all when he called to follow up on the fitting like he said he would, but that call never happened either. It was soon after that I got the offer from the other shop up the road and that experience was so much better that I didn't want to waste more time with CC. 

 

And yes, it was super nice the other shop made that offer. In the end, they are the ones who benefited from word of mouth as I had two other buddies who were looking to get fit for the first time earlier this month and I sent them there.

I've had a couple "JV" fittings and they give me all the warm and fuzzies but I've had enough and booked a fitting at CC in Houston for next Tuesday morning. I hope to find a shaft that works with my M2 but willing to look at other setups. The Wilson C300 spin numbers look enticing as do the G400 ball speed numbers from the MGS driver test. I'm hoping to find something that eliminates the pull/hard draw and can better my smash factor/ball speed numbers

If you are in Houston I would check out Impact Precision Golf. They are very talented and they added 22 yards to my driver and I have seen them do the same for two others. Great guys and top notch fitters. I am not affiliated with them in any way but I have gladly driven 2 hours + to get there for a fitting.

I've never heard of them. Can you give me some additional insight as far as club and shaft options they have available and the fitting process that lead you see that big of a distance gain? They're pricing and concept is the same, but now I'm curious.

Yeah, that is complete unacceptable for the amount they charge for a fitting.  it's not cheap so you are right to expect undivided attention  the entire time.  Both times I've been fit at CC they had at least two people there, one to answer the phones etc while the other was doing fittings.

 

I would reach out to the corporate office with your feedback, sounds like some changes need to be made at that store.

My buddy had a terrible experience at the club champion after his fitting in Boston. They told him he could drop off the club components and they'd assemble them. Well he did and 3 weeks later they hadn't put them together (it was just one driver and one hybrid). It took him contacting their HQ to get them done.

Huh. Didn't realize it's so hit-or-miss at each location; kinda .. "assumed" .. they'd be more standardized - especially with respect to customer service!
