Funny how this turned out.  After reading the first post, I thought about suggesting Cobra as an option, they have a lot of ground covered.  Keep reading, and there they are.  LOL

Though I've never played them, I'm a believer in Srixon stuff, also.  For this thread, it's academic, but doesn't hurt to leave it out there...

Go to as many performance centres as there are available and hit all there top clubs. I tried Callaway, Ping, Mizuno, and Cobra. I ended up buying Callaway but not the recommended club (Big Berth Irons) as I found the Steelhead Pro felt better and it was easier to work the ball. It is always going to be a personal choice.

I loved the Ping and way with Mizuno you could mix the various irons but given my special requirements, Callaway was the best choice plus they had a special that included a Hybrid for free.

 

Callaway Epic Flash 9 Degree

Callaway Big Bertha Fusion 3 wood 15 Degree

Callaway Epic Hybrid 18 Degree

Callaway Steelhead Pro 4-AW Irons

Cleveland 54 Degree Wedge Steel Shaft

Recoil Graphite Shafts in all Callaway Clubs

Callaway Big Bertha Putter - for when it is wet

La Jolla Putter with Flat Car Grip.

Preferred ball - Currently Costco Kirkland Performance 3 Piece but Seed 001 is preferred.

Congrats!

What shaft was in your old sticks and what did he fit you in? 

I'm also curious, I just got fitted and picked up a set of Forged 919's...did he select the shaft for you on his own or did he rely on the Mizuno Shaft Optimizer or some other gizmo?  My fitter said he stopped using the optimizer a while ago...

When I got fitted for my 919F my fitter also refused to use optimizer. He did everything by eye and impact tape and Trackman. Can't complain with the results!

Has anyone tried the Sub70 699 irons? Their price tag is very appealing. I tried the demo clubs and they gave me extra yardage without sacrificing accuracy. But wanted to hear from you guys rather than just what their website reviews were saying.
