Fitting Confusion

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I decided to get fit for a new driver this year. Last year I was fit into a TPT shaft for my Epic at Club Champion. I never felt really comfortable with that shaft and Figured I'd try from scratch this year and see what happens. But the skeptic in me just didn't trust the results that I've gotten. I've ended up getting fit at 4 different locations to see/experiment with the results. Each producing a different result. This has led me to confusion and questioning what I should go with. My stats and results are listed below. I did see good numbers with the final result at each fitting but just surprised at how different each of the results were. I didn't make any significant changes to my swing and all the fittings have been within a 1 month period. Any advice would be appreciated.

Current Club: Epic w/ TPT 16 MKP, MT

SS: ~90mph

 

Fitting 1 (Local Mom and Pop) using Foresight GC2

Result: Taylormade M6 Draw 10.5 Standard settings; GD Tour AD DI 6S

 

Fitting 2 (Local large Golf shop) using Trackman

Result: Epic Flash Sub Zero 10.5, weight in Draw, set to Draw +1; Evenflow Black 6.0 75G

 

Fitting 3 (Demo Day with Callaway Rep) using Trackman

Result: Epic Flash 12.0, weight in Neutral, set to Draw Standard; GD Tour AD DI 6S

 

Fitting 4 (GolfTec) using Foresight GC2

Result: Epic Flash 10.5, weight in Fade, set to Neutral Standard; Tensei AV 65 S  -1/2in

 

What do I do with these results?

I'd go with whatever club/setup was most consistent throughout all 4 fittings. Was there one club that was always in the top 2 or 3? I'd say with my untrained eye, I'd pick an Epic Flash with a GD AD DI 6S.

This is one of the reasons I’m against getting multiple fittings at multiple locations. Swings will vary from session to session, different monitors and possibly different settings on each. Balls between places aren’t the same.

my suggestion would be to look at your ball flight with each and the ball flight numbers from the fittings and determine which gave you a ball flight that you like to see bd which one maximized your carry and total distance. As well as what combo you liked the look/feel of.

Asking for people’s opinions on 4 different combos will get you various responses for each and those will usually be based on their opinions, biases and experiences which may be different than yours.

Would need to see numbers (launch, ballspeed, spin, etc) from the launch monitors comparing your gamer to what you were fitted for. As previously mentioned different day, different balls, different launch monitor.

Ignore all four results and get a G410+ 😎

 I'm bringing partly funny as everyone else gave the best suggestions.   But seriously the G410 did beat the Epic Flash in my demo.

I would see if you could get the breakdown of the numbers from the different fittings.  You could compare side by side each of the numbers to see which one provided the best results.

Agree.  Without seeing ball flight data it's impossible to offer an opinion.

I'd go back to Club Champion. There is a big performance difference between the Epic and Epic Flash, with the Flash seeming to have a tighter dispersion. Shafts can drive you crazy and you just have to go to the manufacturers websites for the specs. Titleist, for example, offers the Kuro, Tensi, Smoke, & Even-Flow as standard on the TS models, and I listed these from highest trajectory/spin/weight to lowest/heaviest. You just need to hit the shafts with your driver on the same monitor with the same balls and compare the results.
