After warming up a bit, my fitter asked some questions about my game. I usually go slightly right with a lot of toe hits.
He fixed me up with a test 6 iron and measured my swing speed, 72,71,73. As I expected, the Mizuno program said I needed
regular flex and a lighter shaft. It recommended graphite. I wasn't opposed to that, but it was more $$$ than I wanted to spend.
Next we discussed clubs. I said I was interested in TM Burner 2.0 if they would work for me. He looked at the specs and said it would be a good fit. He fixed up a demo #6 Burner 2.0 graphite iron for me to hit. My swing speed increased 4 mph across the board and I didn't have a single toe hit. He said that's because TM's are 1/2" longer than most others and my Calli's had been too short for me, not to mention too stiff and too heavy. There's almost 1.0* difference in the lie angles too.
Now the lie board. Unbelievable! Standard lie was dead on. See pic if I posted it correctly. (edit to add....guess I didn't do it right)
Now the grip. Measured my hands and the chart says medium, normal, average.
So my fitting showed that I'm a standard kind of guy. No lie adjustment, no length change, no grip change. It looks like I should use the Burner Graphite out of the box. Other brands might have worked well too, but most would have needed some work. A new set of TM Burner 2.0 Graphite are on order. When they arrive, we're going to run through them checking everything again and get me an approximate distance/gap chart.
I'd never hit graphite before today. I think I'm in love. I wasn't swinging hard, just a relaxed full swing, but it felt like I was knocking the hell out of it.
Although I learned that I could have just bought them and done OK, I'm really happy to know that they will fit me correctly. Without the fitting, I'd never know. And the fitting was free with club purchase.
Thanks to all who patiently replied to my other threads. I learned a lot and pretty much was able to guess what my results would be.
Now, how do I get $900 past the Mrs.?? "Ghee honey, it's only $700 after the trade up"
