Tool for Measuring Club Length

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I am looking to buy a setup to measure club length (driver, irons, putters etc.). I build clubs and modify off the rack clubs too. I have a good swingweight scale now, and want to have a more consistent setup for club length. Currently I use a board, with a piece of wood on it mounted at 60 degrees to the centre line which I measure along (sort of inline with the USGA method I guess), it works well enough, but I'm wondering about maybe getting a more "professional" setup. I am looking at,


The Mitchell setup,




and the Maltby setup,




they are both in the $130 can (ya, I live in canada)


Looking for suggestions on other options, styles, experience with either of these brands etc.


Thoughts ? comments ? Thanks,

It's $99.99 through Mitchell and works perfect every time.

I use the cheap 48" ruler from GolfWorks and its never let me down. I just finished building a set and took them to my friends shop to measure on one of his tools like you posted above, every club was spot on.



I basically use the same thing you do but mine came from the Home Depot around the corner from me. Ie;; No shipping charges in fact I rode my motorcycle there maybe used 25 cents worth of gas

Really you have what you need. The Mitchell Plate Ruler is set at 59*; it's accurate enough for every club in the bag. Your setup sounds similar enough that it wouldn't be an issue, so long as the ruler/tape measurer is situated properly.


Save your money and use it for stocking up grips or disposable tools like epoxy, ferrules, solvent, tape, shims, extra saw blades, etc.
