     I would do neither. Not even PSS. Last time I was fitted for my irons, I went to my local pro shop in Mineola NY, who is highly regarded(even before they made it to the Golf Digest list), and also does fitting for PGA amateurs and other professionals. It took a few hours. He doesn't display clubs and doesn't have all of them. It took my measurements for length and grip size. Then he has heads to attach to different shafts. Decided on which heads I hit best by the tape method. Then hit using a monitor to display which head was better for mishits, and dead on hits also. Then tried many different shafts using their shaft monitor, deciding on flex, weight, kick point, etc. THen sent the specs to Mizuno to build my irons and wedges. They shipped them back and the fitter double checks the lofts and lies before he called my to pick them up.

     When I finally/hopefully get another job, I will go back to them for the new Mizuno irons. Maybe a driver and 3 wood too. He isn't cheap, $125 for the fitting, not deducted from the cost of clubs. Yet worth it.

No its got nothing to do with your handicap.They just wanna make money off of you and figure you love golf and you want to improve and will pay for it.Im a 9-10 handicap and knew I have a good swing and was even told by pro especially since ive been playing 20 years.I took the golftec evaluation was even after figuring out what I needed to do to hit ball straighter and better they still wanted to offer that lesson deal but he wasn't really pushy,just trying to help me be better.Wouldnt recommend anything near that many lessons unless you just started golf.

I was just looking at Golf Galaxy platinum fitting. Then I found a top 100 fitter from golf digest in my area. Both charge the same amount for a complete fitting. I would say make sure you research. 

 

I haven't set up my fitting yet but it is definitely a hard decision. I am looking to get irons and will probably spend somewhere around a grand. Would hate to make the wrong choices.

Sounds great. Let us know what you end up getting and how the fitting goes.
