Looking for recommendations for places that do shaft fitting for Drivers, Fairways & Hybrids.
I don't want to change clubs, just looking for right shafts
I thought the short shaft thing was a bit of nonsense but I tried short Driver & 3W last week out of town.
Felt very easy to get on plane and definitely didn't lose distance, if anything gained it since more drives in the fairway and more centre/square hits.
Has anyone tried short shafts in...
Has anyone tried these?
They're jumbo grips with, as in the subject line, a reverse taper, that is they're thicker towards the bottom of the club, they start out at the top about the same diameter as regular grips, then get progressively thicker towards the bottom.
I may be picking up a set of TM Rsi2 irons. They come with KBS 105 Tour in regular. I'm enjoying less and less swinging S300's, and according to the guy at GT, I'm borderline reg anyway:
85mph 7i ss
Slow side of Moderate tempo, slow transition to downswing
Lots of acceleration through the...

Hey fellow Og'ers, I am getting my gamer putter head refinished and was wondering if any one has used local powder coating companies for this and if they were happy with the result. I am looking at RLD Industries and the other is Ottawa Paint Refinishing both on Albion rd.
You will see pics of...
one of the most informative charts in Wishon's "Search for the Perfect Golf Club" shows what a swing robot which hit the ball dead center at a swing speed of 90 mph did with different driver lengths:
Driver length = 42 inches, ball speed = 133.0 mph, carry distance = 209.7 yards
So Golftown is having their annual Re-Grip Event again.

$2.50 to regrip....(used to be $1.00 and $1.50)
Only on selected grips...(used to be on a wider variety of grips. Now they exclude most of the popular grips).
I was about to spend about $150 on grips and...
Mods go easy if I am in the wrong place as I don’t post often.
I am looking for a whole new set of sticks including putter and I would like to obviously get professionally fit given the investment. That said, over the course of my last two fittings in the Ottawa area, one from a certified...
I am in the process to buy a new driver and I am interested by a club maker who makes my new driver ?
How much for a new driver custom and where is the best place ?
If the club maker speak french, it's a big + for me.
I have a club head is a demo from the "select-fit" series and requires a special adapter and shaft from that series. Does anyone know where I can obtain one?
I'm in search of precise measurements for 255 (5 iron) gram frequency weight for a frequency analyzer I built.
I've found info on the 205 gram weight (woods) and have a successful build on that, and am waiting for the 1.75" steel rod to build the 454 gram (profiling weight).
Just wondering if its a good idea to cut the length of your clubs to suite your height and swing? Is this a common thing to do or should I adjust to my clubs?
Where in the city would you get analyzed for something like this?
I was looking at buying an Aeroburner TP head and putting my old Superfast Burner 2.0 Shaft (Matrix Ozik Xcon 4.8) on it.
The AB TP specs indicate a .335 shaft tip diameter and the SF 2.0 specs state a .350 shaft tip diameter.
When I physically compare the AB TP Driver to the SF 2.0, the SF 2.0...
Put a hybrid shaft in a Taylormade UDI 3 iron. Suggestions?
I spent some time at GT yesterday trying big sticks. I'm in a rebuild since my two sons are starting lessons later this week - hence, quality time with the kids and the wife can't blast me for golfing anymore - insert fist-pump smiley here ;-)
My 3 or 4 year hiatus has definitely impacted my...
Call me sacreligious, but I am considering reshafting a set of copper Ping Eye 2's with something modern and graphite. I have tried removing the head off the 7 iron but it is being very possessive. Perhaps the golf gods are warning me to leave well enough alone, but if anyone has...

Just had my grips done by downhillslider ( Les ). Great job and even took time to measure the lofts of my clubs and weight very impressed. Thanks again Les
So I am looking for advice...
I am right on the edge of R and S flex shafts for my driver.
Each guy at Golf Town gives me a different suggestion, so I am wondering if anybody can suggest a good shaft that in a regular flex would play a little stiffer.
Maybe I am looking for the wrong thing,...
I just had a few clubs re gripped and noticed the 'Golf Pride' might be a little off.
With my wedges, at address, my lower hand/thumb is lined up with 'Pride' lettering - with my newly re gripped clubs, they are not - the lettering is off to the Right, enough that it's noticeable and potentially...
Looking for some ZZ Lite shafts for an old set of Pings. Let me know what you've got laying around.
I have a set of taylormade supersteel burners with R80 shafts and i need to know everything there is to know about the R80 shafts, i know the R is for reg flex, but whats the 80 for? is it the weight in grams or the specified swing speed of 80 mph, or is it the frequency number? also, ive done...
Looking to buy a 4-PW OR 5-GW set of Ping shafts (stiff) preferably pulls. Prep area can not have ferrules - Shafts don't need to be Ping.

Thinking about getting myself a new set of Titleist 716 CB/MBs and was looking to see what people suggest is the best option for getting fit for the right shaft. I'm currently playing KBS Tour V's in my Apex MBs and I'm not all that thrilled with them.
I'm mainly just looking to see what...
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...
Does Golftown fix Sun Mountain golf carts?
golf works no longer has a clamp to do this. Golf town never did. Is there anywhere in the city to get this done?
Does anyone know where I can get a .335 adapter sleeve for my R9? I'd need it shipped to Halifax. Plenty of them on ebay but I'm a little concerned about the quality of the overseas models. Thanks.
Been toying with the idea of making a set of single length irons for some time now. Anyone have suggestions on where to pick up heads, and if one head is better than another? May not be the answer but I keep thinking it makes too much sense not to at least try it. Hell, cant make my game much worse...
Can an offset head on a 3 wood w graphite shaft be adjusted to neutral?
I have used several SMT drivers in the past. I was just wondering if there was a Canadian distributor for the above driver. I believe that it is a partnership between SMT and Diamond Golf.
Anyway, if anyone has any information on whether this is available in Canada (without duty...
Not sure how many are aware of this, but GT has a new company wide policy to no longer save grips. Apparently a tech stabbed himself with a needle, hence the new policy. Just giving everyone a heads up who goes in expecting to be able to keep their grip.
Anyone have any luck with using 70 gramish shafts in their hybrids? Any issues? Did the club feel too light?
Looking for some opinions/advice here guys.
I recently tried the new XRs by Callaway with the recoil shaft(f4)ithink they were 460 but can't say for sure, and really liked the feel and distance.
Here lies my dilemma. I don't want to pay the kind of money GT wants for the set, so i thought that...
I often read a a lot of posts about one component company offering top of the line components but what I would like to know is what makes you believe that KZG is better than Golfworks or why Wishon is better than Golfsmith etc.. I am not asking about clones here.
Keep in mind . Golwforks and...

My wife got my irons re gripped with the same style as I had before but I am not really a fan of the grips...
Is there an easy way to save the grips?
They are the Lamkin iLine grips.
Ok so I am going to take advantage of the shaft & grip sale at GT.
I have an old set of Eye 2's that I want to re-shaft with dynamic golds.
Any issues I need to be aware of when pulling the old shafts?
According to Golfsmith, the new shafts only need to be butt trimmed, can I assume...
I was considering putting an oversized grip on my driver. Was wondering if anyone has done this?
John Daly and Bubba Watson use oversized grips.
Is there anywhere in Ottawa that you can test different grip sizes?

Could someone give me some tips on pulling the plastic bits and the black hardened epoxy from shafts?
I am thinking of just heating up the tips and poking it out with a screwdriver.
I have a Check Mate wedge, where can I have it regrooved?
I'm looking to save a superstroke grip I have on one of my putters...it was installed via the 'traditional method' of double sided tape and solvent. Anybody been successful at removing? and if so, with what technique? Thanks!
I recently got fit by Golf Labs out at Greyhawk for a new driver shaft. They sent me the read outs from the fitting and I thought I would see if the club makers on this site would agree that the recommended shaft seems right. I was just looking to reduce my dispersion, as I try to play a cut /...
