Club Champion for Long Game Fitting?

Hey it's starting to become pretty clear to me that my fairway wood and hybrid are not great fits for me. Driver isn't bad but I'd like to see if I'm more comfortable with something else and thinking about going to Club Champion for the long game fitting. I'm trying to determine if its worth the $200 plus however much the clubs will cost (unless we can just put different shafts in my current clubs), what do you guys think? Should I go with Club Champion or look for a different fitter or demo day in my area?

Whoever you do go to, make sure you get a static and dynamic fitting done.  Also, if the clubs only need a change of shaft, that is generally a cheaper option, but do have a look at slightly older sets as well.  Modern sets, but of say one or two generations ago, might still be cheaper and better than your current clubs with new shafts

Club Champion has a good reputation (in Atlanta) and reps practically all lines. The fitter is your guy for an allotted time.

Demo day ends up being a line of guys trying everything the rep has to offer(one brand) with no one getting all of his attention. By the way, what brand do you think they will suggest.

$200 to get what fits is a lot cheaper than experimenting with purchases.

The fitting I had at Club Champion last November was superb.   I tried several combinations of irons and shafts, hybrids and shafts, fairway woods and shafts, drivers and shafts.  I was physically tired after so much fun work.   I believe I got the best possible clubs for me.   The data backed that up.  They claim to have over 35,000 combinations.   The draw back is the cost.   They are way more expensive than most other places that do custom club fitting.   Do I like my clubs, very much.   Would I do it again?   Maybe...Because of the cost, they aren't for everyone.

Ok well thank you, you all make very good points. It sounds like it's worth it to go and do the fitting with them, reviews for this location are good as well. Looking forward to scheduling with them soon.

I've been fitted at that location, assuming the only one in Colorado is the one in the Denver area.

Be aware that they will upsell you for puring shafts (not worth it) and everything else. It's a high quality fitting experience, but you can get a better deal on the clubs you decide on by not going directly through them.

Just remember you don't have to buy anything from them once the fitting is done. You can take the specs they give you and shop around to find what they recommend or something else close. Seems like most of the stories I have heard end up with people in some exotic ultra premium shaft that runs over $400. If it goes that direction, remember you can always find cheaper shaft options that are just as good.

I hear the same things Adam was saying.  Good news is I can't remember anyone saying they got a bad fitting there.  Just be prepared for the upswell on crap that was mentioned ( puring) and the fact that it will always be a $400 plus shaft they recommend.

  Check and see if there are any specials on fittings, I know they run them time to time.  The suggestion of taking he specs and looking for a shaft pull and maybe a demo head will save u a lot of money.

I did end up going to get fit at Club Champion. I went in for long game, started with driver and really saw the improvement and comfort over my current driver and a good experience. When I started hitting my fairway wood and hybrid the numbers were where they are supposed to be and it ended up just being a driver fitting. I'm thinking about just ordering the Fujikura shaft I got fit for and putting it into my Ping G as opposed to buying the M6 head. If it doesn't work then I'll look into the M6.
