Should I Get Custom Fit?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

The answer I'm guessing I'm going to get is yes, but I want to get everyone's opinion. Here's my situation. I've been golfing for about 5 years and have always had standard length irons. I'm in the market for a new set now and am trying to decide if it's worth taking the time to get custom fit. I was at Golf Galaxy last week and did a quick test for length and they fit me at standard. This wasn't very in depth and was done by an employee who admitted going in he's not technically certified to fit people. I'm 6' 5" and have always had standard length clubs so I can hit them, but I've always thought I'd benefit from lengthened ones. I know keeping them standard means a shorter shaft and probably easier to hit but I'd like to hear the benefits of maybe lengthening them. Odds are I'll get fit but I'd like to hear everyone's opinion on whether it's really worth it for me when I've been told standard length and lie is a good fit.

Your height isn't the only consideration. My son is also 6'5" and has the TM R7' irons. Your arm length also is a factor, and his arms are fairly long, his clubs are only + 1/2". If you have the means, I suggest getting fit, that way you know you have the proper clubs. Just my 3 cents.

I know that people often correlate height with shaft length but in the end they just don't always match. Always get custom fit and find out... You never know. I know short people who have lengthened irons and I know a guy who is 6'4" and uses -.5"! Good Luck!
