I know some threads have posted similar questions, but I believe I am asking a complicated enough question to warrant a thread:
I went to Edwin Watts today to demo some irons and fairway woods. The sales rep was really pushing TM on me, but I was really liking the feel of the Ping i20's. My misses weren't terribly punished like they are with my current set of blades, but I could still feel the miss off the clubface for feedback. They had a much more solid weight to them than the TM Speedbladez did, and I think this will help counteract my tendency to overswing a bit.
Now, to my questions: first, will a custom fitting for, say, the i25 (since that's the latest model and what's in the fitting cart) translate into a proper fit for the i20's? I'm wanting to buy the 20's simply for the sake of saving some money, as I'm on a limited budget. Second (and I know this has been addressed before), would it be wrong of me to get a fitting at Edwin Watts, and then purchase a used set in the appropriate color dot elsewhere? I mean, if they just happened to have a used set in my fit, I'd be happy to buy them from the store, but that is probably an unlikely scenario.
Last, suppose I am fit and the store happens to have some used black dots in stock, are the i20's easily bent? This is all rather complicated as I likely need longer than stock shafts as well. Buying used/older model irons seems like it may be more work than it's worth.
