#1 Problem With Buying Golf Clubs

Golf clubs are a unique product. On average, when you buy golf clubs you don’t know exactly what you’re getting. Worse, if for some reason the clubs don’t fit, if the manufacturing tolerances are off, or if they “just don’t feel right” you have no recourse. Think about drivers. How many times have you ordered

Vintage Blades

A great way to get a very classy and playable set of golf clubs is to “remanufacture” a classic set of forged blades from the past. If truth be told, there haven’t been many improvements in the forging process in fifty years. Ease of use has been improved by some later innovations such as perimeter

Golf Shafts

Most serious golfers have become experts on graphite shafts for drivers over the last few years. Unfortunately, most of that experience came from investing another $150 or so to reshaft the $500 driver that didn’t perform. It is common knowledge today that most “original equipment” shafts are relatively cheap and low quality. Most “better amateurs”

Swing Speed and Frequency Analysis

For many years, fitting flex in golf clubs has been accomplished by estimating or measuring swingspeed and then choosing a shaft and head design according to the perception, knowledge and experience of the fitter. Lately, fitting by swingspeed has turned largely psychological and is driven by marketing requirements of the major manufacturers. Any ambitious, good

Fitting Methodology: Dynamic v. Static

One of the innovations that has been widely accepted among custom club makers over the last few years is that the best results in fitting clubs are obtained from hitting balls. That sounds obvious, but it was not that many years ago that professionals used a ruler and measured “wrist to floor” or “second knuckle

Thesaurus Overview

Every discipline creates its own vocabulary. The custom clubfitting business is no different. What is different from many other disciplines is that in fitting and building custom golf clubs there is no single correct answer. It is an art, not a science. If a Clubmaker ever tells you he can build you the “perfect” set
