have fun with the decision, always easier when you have a clear winner. Would hit another session with both, if you're numbers are the same, go with the tsi3, all your hit are perfect compared to the cobra where you are a little high on the face.

If money is an issue, go with cobra if it's cheaper. (normally is but...)

Also when I look at the trajectory of your shot, Tsi3 seems a little bit better but again the sample size are not the same.

Thanks @cnosilI think its important to hit on that my fitter was very knowledgeable. He wasn't the most "entertaining" as I did most of the talking but I was not there for amusement of chit chat. I think if you have a reputable fitter that is what is key and Natick, MA has one.

@pouetvlit was a great experience and I cannot go wrong. I have hit that TSI multiple times and its ridiculously consistent.....I am definitely hitting the bay 1 or 2 more times.

Your experience really makes me want to get a true driver fitting. If I can get a heat map anywhere close to yours I would love golf so much more!

I have put in a lot of time into my swing over the past year or so. This was a very typical striking pattern during that work.

So what I can say is that getting fitted properly can really do wonders in the striking area as well as working on the swing. Goes hand in hand.

Great write up and congrats on the 3000th post!  Looks like you have a couple of winners to choose from, but pretty dang hard to look past that strike map on the TSi.  Getting really close to center more often is huge IMO.  I'm curious to hear more of your thoughts between the fitting experience at Truespec vs. PGASS... what key things you liked and disliked about each.

So for me I am in two totally different realms in my golf knowledge. If I went to PGASS and true spec the same time it would have been different. 
True spec fitter explained everything to me. What he saw in my swing, what was wrong and what was good. Why he was putting certain things in for me and why it worked.....I wouldn’t have gotten the same thing from this fitter at PGASS at all.

fast forward to now I’m a lot more knowledgeable, enough to be dangerous anyway. So it wasn’t as big of a deal but I like the reasoning behind things and I didn’t get that at all from PGASS but I wasn’t looking for that either.

Same thought here.   My guess is that Truespec has, on average, a higher level of fitters...but that is almost certainly location dependent.  My TS fitter explained aspects of club heads and shafts I knew nothing about. I felt like he had me pretty well characterized by the end of my warm up and wasted little time getting the right options out of the treasure drawers to start the down select.

Before both of my TS fittings, I popped into the nearby Scottsdale PGASS to look around (never had been to one).  During my second visit, I spoke to a couple of the fitters and they seemed quite knowledgeable. I told them I was headed over to TS and they had nothing but good to say - even asked who my fitter was.  They still asked if I wanted to test anything and I did hit the ZX5's with the Recoil option shaft. What I noticed there was that they appeared to have all of the OEM standard and upcharge shafts.... not the case at Truespec.

I think for folks trying to decide where to a fitting, this is an important thing to know/consider.

Well summed up. I think you can safely say going to an OeM specific fitting they’re going to be able to tell you everything about their specific product and what it can do. You can hone in that 1 thing. 
I would say with confidence going to either PGASS/club champion/true spec so on and so on its location dependent.

Full bag fitting I’m going to true spec. Odds and ends PGASS

I am excited to get my first high quality OEM agnostic fitting done either summer 2021 or sometime in 2022. I did have an OEM agnostic fitting done before for irons, but the shaft selection was limited to what the OEM provided in their fitting carts. So for example, I could hit a Ping iron, but only with the shafts that Ping sent in their fitting cart, and then a Callaway, etc. Did not have the universal heads/shafts.

I will be going to Modern Golf, which was where Ian Fraser was a part owner and head fitter, before he founded TXG. Will be going to the Richmond, BC location. My two choices for top notch fitters (besides Club Champion) were either in BC or Oregon, and BC is actually a closer drive for me.

Nice, i pondered using that golfballs.com 20% coupon for a driver before but never pulled the trigger. Thought my order would get cancelled anyway.

She’s in! Can’t wait to get it regripped and cut down tomorrow. Great deal on golfballs.com only thing was I had to track down the shipping stuff. When shipped for cobra they didn’t notify. Small detail.

not that it matters because I have my head-covers but do not like this one very much. Loved last years stock on the speedZone. 
 

first swings to come later on this week!
