If it’s only “stock shafts”, I haven’t been fitted to a stock shaft in 10 fittings. Hmm

I'm not sure that it's only stock shafts. In the OP, it shows a M4 with a Tensi Pro Orange. That isn't a stock shaft for the M4. I don't know if it's just a rendering of the results, or an actual fitting result. 

But yeah, like @jlukes said, this isn't meant for forum golfers, it is meant much more for weekend warriors that don't know the first thing about club fitting.

“Now imagine it being guaranteed to outperform what you currently own,” is what keeps throwing me off and thinking it’s for everyone.

I don't mean to offend anyone, but I'm skeptical. For a good while we've been told that in-person clubfittings are really valuable in finding the proper combination of clubhead and shaft and flex and length and lie.  And now we're simply be able to input some data while sitting at our desk at home and get a fitting that is as good or better?  I took a quick look, and didn't proceed far enough to see what data we'll need to have available, but this just seems to be a stretch.  I'll be interested to read the reviews.

We actually have an official review up of TGF without the shaft portion in it.  You have to remember that TGF, as mentioned, is for the person who doesn't go through fittings.  It is for the consumer that wants to just walk into the store, grab it off the rack, and go.  It is not aimed at the gear heads, like most of us on this forum.

Humm, when is something to good to be true?

This simple approach to fitting depends upon the accuracy of the responses by the player. A quality in person fitting makes all this subjective opinion into real time data as well as allowing for the feel/look to be factored into this $400-500 purchase.

Again, this tool isn't supposed to replace a full fitting or be for us equipment nerds. It's for the average golf consumer that has known interest in a full fitting.

Understood, but how does it know "my swing" in order to put me in a club?

I get that it doesn't take the place of a true fitting. I just don't understand how it works if I can't give specific data because I don't know what to tell it?

You're going to get out of it what you put in to it.  Basically it is going to ask for some data on how you swing and you will input the answers.  The better the answer you can provide the better the result is going to be for you.  Handicap, swing speed, angle of attack, swing tempo, then it will give you an answer.  There is also an Expert model where instead of a range of answers you will input more specific numbers.

The catch here is that you will need to know what those numbers are for your swing.  If you are just shooting in the dark on how fast you actually swing and what your AoA is you might as well stand in front of the used bin at your local golf store, close your eyes and pick one.

In my opinion this will never replace an in person quality club fitting.  But like jlukes said this isn't for the customer who already get's fit for their clubs.  It's for the guy who walks in to a golf store, hits a couple drivers and walks out with whichever one struck their fancy that day. 

Invest a little time to get your numbers and this will be better than a shot in the dark.  But if you are serious about golf I'm always going to recommend a session with a quality club fitter.

Well, I tried it a couple weeks ago and am very disappointed.  The driver recommendation was a Srixon Z765 which, as best I can tell is two years old and no longer available new.  There was no recommendation on shaft flex or loft.  I have twice tried to contact them by the message button on their website, but no response.  There is no phone or email listed on the website. They offer a 60 day guarantee, but no way to contact them.  I only pissed away $7, but  I am very disappointed that MyGolfSpy had recommend this without more research or at least a disclaimer that it had not been checked out.

I too was recommended the Z765 and this driver is awesome you have many adjustments as far as loft to play with and can even set it up closed or open I am very happy with my purchase based on the recommendation and was happy to spend 120 used online to put it in the bag.

Sorry to hear you are disappointed, my suggestion is that you read some of the threads on the tool and what the current version offered. Without data for the new heads it may be impossible to recommend 2019 equipment since the algorithms have no data to evaluate against. Hopefully Adam or someone associated with the trufit website will see your post and respond directly to you.

Does anyone know if these advanced fitting will be attached to previously purchasedd online fittings or do we have to purchase a new fitting? I looked at my old fittings and nothing has changed.
