Anyone ever use True Spec Golf?

They are a custom fitting company that from the advertising looks impressive. I am headed there within the next few days for a custom fitting for irons. Just wondering if there are any experiences out there that I might draw from. Thanks in advance!

I don't but by looking at their website they do have many options from many different club / shaft manufacturers.    Good luck and make sure to give us the details of your fitting.    We love to live vicariously thru other golfer's wallets!

OK so I did my 1 hour fitting session for irons with True Spec Golf at Lake Nona which is right next to the Orlando airport, what a beautiful place. I am currently waiting for my Trackman datato be loaded but the short of it was that the irons I'm hitting are not optimal for me anymore. I was playing Mizuno MP-54 (which are forged clubs) with TT Dynamic Gold S300 shafts. The initial data said my 7 iron carry was about 138, and I typically play it for length of 150. So it wasn't that far off but when I hit it off center I lost 10 yards or more. Also the fitter noted that my smash factor was lower than he would expect (although I do not remember the number). Skipping to the end what I ended up with were the Mizuno JPX 919 Hot Metal Pro with KBS TGI 701 shafts. So a bit more whippy a shaft and a bit more forgiving a club head. As a compare the carry became 152 with the new irons/sticks but I do recognize that the MP-54 7 iron was 34 degrees and the new 7 iton is 31 degrees, so that's where some of the distance came from. The rest came from a lighter graphite shaft and hopefully the "hot metal" club face. I will load the trackman data once it is available. The best part was even off center hits traveled almost as long as center hits. As I'm getting older and losing distance and making poorer contact, I was happy to see that.

My review of TRUE SPEC GOLF would be:

PROS: Very professional facility, huge manicured range with all the targets greens and other practice facility stuff you'd expect and then some. The fitting is loaded with endless choices in sticks and shafts. Very professional fitting explaining everything as we progressed, and the guy knew what he was doing. Very impressive setting too, basically everything was top shelf all the way. I will also explain that the fitting was an hour for $125. Also, you can literally walk if you want to with your trackman data and if you think about it, for just $125 it is a great investment when you are looking at $1000 or more for the equipment even at the lowest price you can find. We also found that the clubs I was playing were not custom as I have been told, they were not 2 degrees flat as I had ordered for instance

CONS: The price quote I got for the irons to be ordered and made was a little short of double what you'd pay for "off the shelf" clubs online.

Considering that I've never felt that I got what I wanted and the fitter confirmed that for me, they guarantee I will get what I ordered, and so I ordered them. It'll be quite a change for me. More to come when my trackman data shows up.

True Spec is designed to be for more of a high budget golfer, for sure.   But, that said, double the rack price for a set of irons seems odd?   did you happen to get some expensive shafts added or something like that?

There's definitely an upcharge for the KBS TGI shafts.

I believe like Club Champion they try to put you into a custom shaft.   In my experience the shaft is usually the price of the club.
