Heft / MOI club fitting

Recommended Posts

 

Have anyone tried to fit your clubs, from first of all using your best iron as a baseline, and then changing the swingweight of the rest of your clubs, so the MOI was similar/same as the favorite?

 

I saw an interesting article, where the swingweigts basicly changed 1.3 seingweight for every inch the shaft/club changed..

 

For instance if your 7 iron was D1, then the 8 iron would be D1.65 and the 9 iron was D2.3 and so on.. (5 iron would be C9.7)

 

I tried this on a HONMA LB280 ironset I got for cheap, because the 4,5 and 6 irons felt so much better than the rest of the irons (set is 3-11 iron)..

 

So I tried the 1.3 swingweight change for every inch and I was very surprised (and glad) that it actually worked! (For me anyway)..

 

So my question is if anyone has tried this or something similar?

I know it's a popular way to do it. It requires a lot of DIY knowledge and some equipment, but I know it's popular. I have never tried it myself but some people absolutely swear by it. 

There's never been any evidence I've seen that it works better then traditional weighting, it has lots of subjective evidence of individuals claiming how great it is. If it works for you, go for it.

I could be nice, if #mygolfspy tested both traditionally weighted irons vs. MOI / heft weighting.. 

Only reason I tried it, was because the 7-10 irons felt 'funny'.. -I even used this method for my driver/wood/hybrid and so far it seems like it works.

I honestly don't think it's a popular enough method for MGS to bother testing it, a lot of their testing revolves around the average golfer and people who are changing the swightweights of their own clubs I don't think qualify.
