Bring it!
I play golf to beat the game fair and square. I like the challenge of golf so to make it easier with non-conforming drivers, straighter-flying balls and whatever else manner of cheating there is just doesn't appeal to me.

You'll get a feeling for which of the "suitable" sets you prefer. It could be how they look at address, it could be that they feel more balanced as you swing them, it could be that you can feel where the clubhead is a little better throughout the swing, it could be that the technology on one set makes you feel more confident with them or even something as silly as the sound when you hit them.

If it sits *on* the grass there'd be a fair amount of height difference (on the very same tee box) between a freshly mown vs one day before the next mowing surface. For me the lack of consistent height for each shot would irritate me; that's also why I moved away from Castle Tees. On a positive...
Someone once told me "drive for show, putt for dough" and I want lots of dough so I carry 14 putters. 
Big golf chain for the following reasons: - DNA fitting on my new irons (Mizuno JPX 850 Forged) - Golf range as part of the facilities to try the irons with real(ish) ball flight - Fantastic trade-in value on the old irons - Excellent staff knowledge and always friendly and helpful - 5 minute drive from my home
