The channel still puts out good vids . 

 

His  pricing is ridiculous , lol . Huge pass Ian ,give me a break dude

 

They have become more pushy on selling clubs , especially shafts. 

 

So disappointing.  But hey , CC is the owner!

Agreed. Not sure how many will pay $5k for a fitting but I guess there must be enough demand to warrant that pricing. Hard pass for me.

I know nothing about this guy…..but that said…..is he really that insecure about his fitting abilities that he feels a need to charge you for the clubs in advance as well?  If he’s that great a fitter he should be confident that you will want to also purchase the clubs from him. Just one guys opinion.

Ian may be the world's best fitter.  If you don't like the price, move on.  

 

But hey, you can always book at the nearest Club Champion.  lol

I think they did the pricing this way because not enough people were buying clubs from them. Just my stupid opinion. 

Was thinking it's got to be one of two things. Either people are just booking to say they got fitted by famous internet guy Ian Fraser and never really intending to buy in the first place, or, the time-vs-money for a full bag is so much better than piece meal that a 6 month wait list suggests there are enough full bag customers that he can afford to pick and choose.

 

I guess I always thought of TXG as boutique so really I'm not surprised considering the price of shafts today are absurd for the common weekend golfer anyway.

I’m ok with the fitting fee, but the equipment credit is bothersome. 
 

I’ve been fit several times at TXG, including my current driver, can Ian really improve it that much??  An extra 5 yards maybe?  What if slight tweaks to your existing irons is all that’s needed, and a new set offers marginal improvement. Just seems off putting, to “have” to purchase from them with this structure.  Again, happy to pay for my fit and pick/choose to spend when/where.

 

As previously mentioned, TXG/CC does appeal to the minority of the golfing population, and I’d argue that that group has a good sense of custom fitting, and would see marginal improvements over drastic results.  Or simply just want new clubs, regardless of any improvements.

It's funny to me that people criticize the pricing.... do you know how much overhead goes into having a place like TXG... the building/shop, fitting equipment, different shafts and clubs to try?  The manufactures don't give fitters all the equipment for free. Golf hard goods are somewhere between 20 and 30% margins...  Some golfers come in for a fitting and get all the spec suggestions then shop around for the  best price possible which is fine but in my opinion not fair to the fitter. TXG and other fitters aren't making money on the fittings they make money when you purchase equipment from them. 

 

The retail golf business is not an easy one, I appreciate all the content TXG provides us on youtube.  Ian seems like a pretty good guy, props to TXG from continuing to produce quality content for us!!!

Videos have gone downhill big time for those that actually pay attention to details, the non-verbal communication between he and Mikey give so much away, the fake results like in the driver bracket this year, him giving half of the effort on purpose to certain clubs so they get dismissed, varying swing speeds between clubs, getting 20-25 yards difference magically when he hit the same club two weeks before with normal results, them editing out shots to get the results they want to push, etc etc etc. 

 

There is still some good info to be had from watching but for those that have watched for years and really pay attention, it's more about pushing new products now than anything.  Especially products of TM, Callaway, Ping, and Titleist

Ian all about the dollars, that's why Matty left.

He can't even fit himself, he changes clubs 16x a year lol.

Go see Matty at liberty.

 

 

I wondered where Matty had gone...

 

Now, I may not go to Toronto often... well, ever so far in my life... but if i did, i would indeed go see Matty 😉

 

Googled and found his site - sounds rather good (for swing coaching as well as the equipment side) 

 

https://golfliberty.com

 

"Advice exclusively in the player's best interest" kind of sets the tone, lol.

 

"Pursuing performance, not sales

 

Comprehensive swing and ball flight analysis to identify improvement opportunities. Whether it's fitting new clubs, adjusting existing equipment, or providing swing technique guidance – you want to improve, we'll show you how."

 

the OP Doucer should take a gander - fair pricing it seems too.
