Swing Weights for Tall Players in WRX Club Techs Posted January 14 On 1/11/2021 at 1:06 PM, dry664 said: I'm 6'4" with 39" wrist to floor and I've been fit anywhere from +0.5 to +2.5" from a number of very well regarded fitters (+2.5" was from The Leadbetter Academy!). In the past I've played at a high level (won 3x NCAA D1 championships, played Challenge Tour and European Tour) but now just play the game recreationally. Here's my thoughts: - At more than +1", generally you are going outside of the boundaries of what the club/shaft manufacturers intended with regards swing weight/overall weight/balance point/design - It's much, much harder to play really long clubs if you don't play a lot - Playing irons of E+ swingweights can lead to injury so avoid if possible If you do find yourself needing excessively long clubs: - Go upright before you go longer. I think 3 deg upright is just about the playable max. I think the flatter you can keep the lie the more stable the club will be through impact. - Figure out the shortest playable length of the shortest club you'll make a full swing with. For me thats a 52deg gap wedge, then use that over standard (i.e.+1") throughout the bag. - Select irons from a manufacturer who offers light weight head options....Mizuno, Titleist, TM, Ping - Take advantage of other base components to shift the swing weight in your favour, i.e. KBS Tour 120's are counterbalanced and can shift swingweight -3 points vs something like an x100. Midsize grips are another thing that can shift swing weight in your favour, as are white grips are they contain more pigment and are usually heavier. I've never been a fan of using counterweights like Tour Lock, but arguably they produce the same effect as as midsize grip - Just because you need longer irons, you probably don't need longer woods - Don't forget that your swing plays a large part. If you're playing clubs at +2" but you're an early extender/handle raiser, you're not doing yourself any favors with clubs that are that long. I'm currently in a combo set of TM P7MC/P770 which swing weight between D2-D5, and they are +1" over TM standard. Thanks! That all makes great sense and I have had some soreness in my right elbow which is probably explained from the high SW. I'm hoping in the next few years to get a full fitting once I've got the money and time to play more. If it didn't cost $350 for the fitting and then another $1500 plus for the clubs i would jump on it today. I live in St. Louis so we've got Club Champion and lots of local clubs to choose from for fitting, but I'm guessing Club Champion is the way to go.
