I think it is some old retired guy who posts a lot on here and plays golf when he isn't doing that.   Can't be much time for anything else.

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

That may be next on my wish list too. As I develop, I can sure see a time in the near future where I'll outgrow my "Game Improvement" irons and wedges. That oughta be exciting-the iBlades look super sweet and I'd love me a Glide 2.0 wedge or three... ;)

Just looked up where the nearest Club Champion is from me and that'd be Salt Lake...a 5-hr drive one-way...! Hmmm, con War Dept. to load up the kids, hit the water park, grab some In-N-Out burgers and maybe disappear for a fitting...Hmmmm..... B)

1/2 inch longer and 2 degrees up

 

Sometimes I look up and think to myself, was that you who just hit that beautiful shot. I'm going low this year. If I can get that short game working this is going to be fun!

uh...meant distance wise on the clubs :D so 1/2 longer...hmm...does that mean you were leaning over more and that forced you to be more upright which then forced you to go 2 degrees up ?  Just wondering...

I'd say these irons are at least 5 yards longer. I'm reaching past the pins now where as I was always coming up short.

Update on my fitting at Club Champion in Sandy Springs.  It has been over two weeks and the clubs are still not here.  

 

When I was fitted and decided to order the clubs from them, I knew it would be a premium price and expected premium service.  I was told they would be delivered to my door was billed and paid in full with my card.  Was told they would be at my door in 7 to 10 work days. 

 

Last Thursday, I got the email from Club Champion that the clubs were shipped and would be delivered next day.  Checked the tracking number, the clubs were being delivered to the store, not to my home.  I emailed the store and was told that I should have paid a shipping fee???  No one mentioned a shipping fee, the clubs were shipped to the store instead of my home.  How much sense does that make? 

 

The email which I received Friday said I should call them and give a cc number for the shipping.  If it hadn't been so late, I would have drove the two hours to the store and picked them up then.  Instead, I gave the credit card number and was charged $21 and assured the clubs would go out Saturday morning.  Now, Tuesday, I contacted them, no clubs still, they told me the clubs were still in the store but would be shipped this evening??? 

 

The fitting was good, I think, won't know until I hit the clubs.  My advice now, is get the cub fitting but save a heap of money and trouble by getting the clubs somewhere else.

That's what I decided to do. Buy else where. Sounds like you got some crappy customer service

Update on my experiences with Club Champion.

 

Finally, I received the irons about a week ago.  They were beautifully built and safely shipped.  Taylormade P-790 heads with Aerotech i80 shafts 1/2" longer than standard.  PW through 4.  They are sweet hitting, especially the long irons.  Just a little tweaking required now.  Instead of taking them back to Sandy Springs, I took the P, 9, and 8 to a local guy, yesterday, who is really good and had the lie adjusted two degrees flatter.  That move seemed to be spot on today as the flight went from a hard draw, the past week, to dead straight today.  The longer irons may need a little flattening, the jury is still out on that, maybe one degree.  I don't mind a little draw on the 4 through 7 irons.  A bigger problem is the gaps, I haven't played them enough to confirm the first impression that there is a huge gap between the 8 and the 7.   

 

Oh, and I stand by my opinion, get fitted at Club Champion, buy elsewhere.  Besides the shipping fiasco, I changed my mind on grips and notified them the day after the fitting.  They charged me a little bit for that change but the grips weren't changed.  Matt did offer to change them for me or to send me some grips to change myself ( I do my own grips).  I declined his offer to evaluate these grips and maybe try something totally different in the future.

So received my irons this evening....so stoked.

Got Mizuno JPX 900 Forged with Steelfiber I95 stiff shafts.

One question...the serial numbers on the heads are not matching on two of the irons.

Is this inconsequential?

If it does matter....why?

 

I look forward to your responses.

Already sent them an email this evening...waiting on their response. Just to add a couple more details....I decided to add a 4 iron to my set a few days after the order was placed. It's serial number matches all the other irons.

The two odd clubs are the 6 and 9...which match each other.

I might have a little OCD...cause I don't like it.

I can convince myself that something might be slightly different (from the foundry) between the two batches 🤪.

Didn't know if there was anything to that kinda thinking.

Thanks Ole Gray

Yea your irons should definitely ALL have the same serial number.   If they can't find the other two then they need to send you a complete set with matching serial numbers.

The reply I was sent from CC was, because they buy in bulk, they “weight sort” the heads to ensure consistency among the set. I guess I can buy that explanation but I was expecting all serial numbers to match.

Just for kicks why don't you send the OEM an email and let them know about your clubs.  I would be interested to know what their take is.

I've got to agree with OG on this. Serial numbers should be same throughout the iron set.

Ok... I sent Mizuno USA an email. I'll let you guys know what the response is.

Just to add, the Club Champion fitter said “we weight sort the heads to ensure consistency throughout the set of irons, you would more than likely find matching serial numbers on any set of irons purchased from a big box store but we take it a step further”.

I know they (CC) are selling “tour level fittings”...but that answer would indicate that tolerances are not as exacting from the OEM itself.

I'd like to know what you guys think about that?

Splitting hairs?

I was wondering if it had something to do with swing weight. Sounds legit to me. As long as you don't feel a difference, I think it's perfectly fine.
