  1. Prefacing this by saying we weren't present at the fitting and can only go by OP's post. It's tough to recommend something without trying it first, which is why your fitter wouldn't recommend the TX in the driver even though you can likely handle it. Keep in mind, clubhead speed is just a starting point for flex. How you load the shaft is often more important (take it back quick or slow/smooth, then come through quick or slow/smooth). When you look at 6.5X vs 6.5TX it's kind of like comparing an Iron shaft that's standard X to an X Plus. It's not a 7.0 so it's not a full flex stiffer

  3. We try to keep our offerings pretty consistent from store-to-store — not always possible based on the OEM (for example, we carry MOD Golf in maybe 30 stores with the potential to add locations later) that's the goal. That said, it's just a matter of logistics to make sure we're optimizing space in our stores and getting the widest variety of club technology without too much redundancy. With changes like that, it would happen gradually — i.e. adding more heavy shaft options to existing families — as opposed to diving in with demos from every brand to make sure the addition is sustainable.
  4. Interesting -- can you please be more specific about what you feel is left to be desired by SAM PuttLab fittings?
  5. Depends on which shaft you're talking about, but we do carry RDX options (smoke blue and smoke black). Some models within existing lines are exclusive to OEMs or aren't offered to us as part of our demo package, but that's what we're asking this question — to see if there's anything missing that we can reasonably add to the list.
  6. Generally speaking, this is tough because we'd need tipped options in basically every offering to cover those bases, which is impossible on its own but then you add in the question of how much tipping. Additionally, shaft OEMs themselves recommend against tipping in most cases — we can certainly do it on the build side but it tends to be the exception, not the rule. Either way, the feedback is noted if there's a solution in the future!
  7. We do get those Tour-only offerings more often than any other fitter but what many golfers don't realize is that those are entirely dependent on the OEM. Most OEMs don't/can't make enough demos for us to carry those products, which is mostly driven by return (i.e. there's not always enough demand to justify 80+ demos and higher manufacturing numbers). But we take in as many as they offer!
  8. You're 100% on point. We sometimes run into issues with niche/bespoke brands that physically cannot keep up with the demand that our stores would place on their manufacturing. Autoflex is a recent example -- it's not that we don't want to offer them, they just can't keep up with the potential demand from 80+ stores in the US. That said, we're open to looking at new brands (hence the thread) that might make sense for our golfers, even in a limited capacity. We would agree that there are no real "holes" in our offerings if you look at it strictly from a "can we find something that wo
  9. We do carry Ben Hogan and a couple other traditionally D2C brands, so it might make more sense than you think!
  10. We do have a brands page on our site: https://clubchampiongolf.com/brands
  11. We're curious...are there any club equipment brands that Club Champion *doesn't* carry that you'd like to demo during a custom fitting? We currently have over 55,000 hittable combos but we're a big supporter of "the more, the merrier" as a concept. Please let us know what brands we're missing!
  12. Keep your eye out for an announcement coming soon!
