I wonder how much Ian made on that deal, didn't expect them to sell out... they must have got an offer they couldn't refuse! what's the source of this news?

Doesn't surprise me.  The industry is at record high revenue and profit levels so it makes sense for the acquisition.  I'm sure Ian cashed in with some control to stay and make as much or more than he was taking from the business already.

It would be an interesting acquisition.  I know a few of the guys who worked there through the industry and they always wanted to expand out of just Toronto.  I wonder if this is their way of doing it.  I know they aren't hurting for money so it's not a buyout in the sense they were starving for cash type of thing.  It also could just be a partnership.  Another local fitting studio in the area was pseudo-partnered with Cool Clubs but I am not sure if that is still a thing or not.  It was listed o the site a few years ago but I haven't checked since.

It is a fact, someone I know and trust has texted with Ian directly.

Well there it is....  That's a little better than " I heard a Rumor " or " Seeing Reports"

Ewwww gross.

 

I'm sure theyre keeping Matt/Ian on as a face to smooth the transition and keep doing YT videos or etc to make it seem like 'all is well' for a short while, at least.

 

Hopefully Ian is smart enough to only sign a short non-compete and then he can move onto another similar venture which will again be a high quality top tier fitter rather than what CC provides...or will inevitably turn TXG into.

I think where I see this going, and I could be wrong.

 

CC is just going to use TXG as it's video arm for content, so that they have something like 2nd Swing does with Thomas.  That way there's no investment into starting up a video production.  

 

Obviously there could be more to it from the fitting aspect, but I see that as the chief purpose here.

Oh no, that's what that logo was on the TXG Instagram story? Yikes. 😞

 

Edit: Good for Ian and the crew at TXG, they're the best. Probably not good for people trying to get fit by TXG/TXG folks, but I guess we'll see how it shakes out.

This is what I was thinking ....  TXG has a following like no other on YouTube and CC basically bought that along with Ian's credibility.

Looks like TXG is going to have an overnight epiphany that Oban iron shafts and VA Composite wood shafts are... and have been... the best shafts players across the board...for years.

 

Makes you wonder how long this has been in the works since TXG used VA for the fitting of their Pinehurst trip winners, rather than a traditional open brand fitting.

 

Seems like a great move financially for Ian, but am very curious to see what this means for TXG and their offering long term.

Funny...I didn't even know about the Pinehurst trip/fitting.  Ironic though.

 

I wonder if Ian is going to be the next advocate for pure-ing shafts?

 

After all...99.9% radial quality isn't good enough.  Easily 10 yards left on the table.

Didn't they do a blind test on it and it was largely a farce?

They used VA as that is who offered the shafts for free as a giveaway! Why not take free stuff to give as the big offer was the trip to Pinehurst, vs. a full bag fitting like in their first big giveaway.
