swingweights and clubfitting...


littlepoison

Recommended Posts

options and how to tell what's "best?"
Getting pumped for an upcomming lesson and clubfitting... not necessarily in the same day, just figured I'd commit to it now so I can't back out later :)

When I'm trying out various models of clubs, if I like to feel the clubhead more than with my current implements of destruction, will I be able to try different swingweight clubs while doing the fitting evaluation?

Will I just have to go with a heavier shaft than normal, or would lead tape be the way to go? I need to heighten my feel because the "standard" swingweight for my TA4's (which are also a little shorter than standard length, not sure if that's part of it) is just too light... plus, along with Titleist, Hogan, Mizuno, etc., I'm really considering getting fit for PINGs and I've read some posts here and elsewhere that seemed to hint that PING seems to be rather light on the swingweight scale... I'm totally clueless here, so any and all advice is welcome...

Thank you for the info, that's very helpful... especially since I completely forgot to mention that I was hoping to have the clubs "weighted" a little more than what would be considered "standard," which seems to be D2 (please correct me if I'm wrong here)... Maybe D3-D4 would fit the bill? Guess I'd just have to listen to the fitter

regarding how I'd be able to find the swingweight I like, without damaging the demo/fitting models...

I know pings have a pretty low swingweight (C9-D0) but if you are having them custom made ping will make them whatever you want/need them to be. Titleist on the other hand is generally heavier and have a D2 swingweight except in the 775.cbs which is D1. Again if you are having the Titleists made custom they will be whatever you and the fitter decide is best. Both PING and Titleist have excellent custom departments unlike Cally and TM which I'm told can't always be trusted, a local shop that does a lot of fitting told me they got a set of custom Callaways in and the 5, 6, and 7 iron were all the same loft... ?

 

Swingweight's all about feel, and some are more senstiive to it than others. I could blindfolded and be swinging a brick followed by a feather and I doubt I could tell you the difference.

 

Whatever set you get, have your clubfitter run them through the loft lie machine and put them on the swing weight scale if he's not building them himself. ALL OEM's make mistakes in their custom departments, and while some have better track records than others, it's best to get things double checked when you get them.
