  1. Poll Poll: Getting fitted poll

    Just curious to find out how many people on this forum have ever been fitted by a clubmaker/clubfitter? If yes did that make a big difference in your game? If no why not? Not talking about an occasional shaft change but a full clubfitting session involving launch monitor,swing speed, grip sizing...

  2. Blueing Golf Clubs

    I was just wondering if anyone out there has every blued the head of a putter or club at home, and how difficult it was and how time consuming it was?

  3. What's more important in a driver?

    I have a question or two: I currently have the Proto By U shaft in my SQ Driver. I have a driver swing speed around 100-104 mph. I am going to go and get fitted for a new driver shaft (possibly, if another shaft is better for me than this one). I am curious what would be the better upgrade. Is...

  5. Question 40 yard gain with new shaft

    Read this from another thread. Not to discredit the poster but I have a hard time believing that you can gain 40 yards just by switching shafts unless the shaft change cured a severe slice/block or a hook/pull. A lighter longer shaft will supposedly enable you to swing faster therefore longer that...
