I am debating whether to get fit at a place that then assembles the clubs versus ordering custom direct from the manufacturer. For those of you that have done a True Spec or Club Champion, was it worth the extra money to have them do the assembly? Do you think there is any advantage to having the shaft pured?

    You won't cut any strokes off your score getting your irons pured. Get fit from either and then order custom directly from the manufacturer. My custom Titleist were about $1500 total where CC's bill would have been around $2450 from what they quoted. Don't feel obligated to order from them you're paying them for the fitting.

    I agree with HappyGilmore22, puring is a waste of money if you are ordering clubs with good quality shafts, and these days most shafts are manufactured to pretty tight tolerances. I'd also order direct from the OEM and then just check the specs when the clubs arrive, specifically length and swing weight. Loft and lie may not be perfect, but you can always have a good club maker tweak that for not more than $10 per iron.

    AGREED ... go to Club Champion if you want to walk out with a sore

    On -, @ss from being bent over and shafted .. how/why do people pay those prices? $1500 from Titleist direct or $2450 from CC ... but i'm sure the guy at CC will say "you are better off to get them from us"

    Have them build by the OEM and then find a good club builder and have them check lofts and lies when they come in. Don’t pay a huge up charge for unnecessary things.
