Fitting Today was AWESOME


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

My clubs are the original AP2's and after 12 years they have been great clubs.  I did my research and hit almost every major brand and it was great to work with a knowledgeable fitter who understood my swing and was able to switch and match shafts.  It was really cool and very different from my Titleist tour van fitting 12 years ago. 

After the marathon session the top 2 were Mizuno JPX 921 Hot Metal Pro and the Wilson d7 Forged.  I'm going back tomorrow to make a final decision and make my shaft decision.  I am leaning to the Mizuno for the fact you have so much flexibility with options including grips with no up charge.  I play midsize so this is a huge bonus.

 

I will report back once they are ordered!!!

Glad you had a great experience!  I totally agree with your take re: Mizuno; they allow you to pick a lot of shaft options and grip options at no upcharge, where some mfg's hit you for as much as $30/club for the same shaft.  Adds up pretty quickly.  One of my best buddies just bought JPX 921"s with Nippon Modus shafts (don't remember the exact specs) and they are SWEET!!!

The JPX921 look like a complete winner this year and the Wilson D7 Forged are heavily well reviewed everywhere I look. Seems like you can't go wrong with either!

However I am a little bias as I have an order in for the JPX921 Tours 😉

... I am joining you and having my first full bag fitting tomorrow at the Mistwood Performance center. I really just wanted a Driver/Putter fitting to check putter for ideal loft and try and few different shafts/heads in my driver but it was $200 for just those 2 and $225 for a full bag fitting. I might as well see how the T100-S stack up to my P760's and the new P770's as well as how my DI/Hybrid/FW gap best for just an additional $25.

Don't disappoint me and put the T100 S's on the bench!

Just joking with ya, plan on going Saturday and getting fit for some irons. Really leaning towards the T100 S irons and potentially the Recoil shafts. Never had graphite shafts in irons, but at 62 yrs old, think it may be time. Enjoy your fitting and buy something new, we all like new toys.....

... I am really not expecting to make any changes with my equipment other than maybe a shaft in my Driver or DI. I'll let ya know how it goes. T100-S with Recoils is a very tough combo to beat!

What made you choose MPC over Club Champion, True Spec, or others?  Look forward to hearing how it goes.

... A couple friends of mine went and raved about Mistwood PC and it is close to home. Then several on a Chicago golf site had nothing good to say about CC, although a few enjoyed their fitting. Really just a gut feeling and as I said, I am not expecting to change anything other than shafts or lofts but I will not be surprised at all if nothing is changed. I have probably bought and sold 20 driver shafts in the last 3 years and figured I might as well hit 'em all. I have just never done a full bag fitting just individual clubs and I thought it might be fun.

I had to double check, I played that course a decent bit in high school. I’m hoping next year to get fit at True Spec north of the city.
