A bit of background before my question, sorry if I bore anyone.
I purchased a set of AP1s for Christmas, (my wife's present to me was to say, "you can buy a set of clubs and I won't complain about it.") I was fit at Golfsmith and ordered my shafts 1.5" long with no lie adjustment per the recommendations of the fitter. (I'm 6'5", thus the longer shafts.)
When I was hitting the AP1 during the fitting session, I was absolutely killing the ball. This is why I purchased the AP1s instead of the other brands I tested. The performance was phenomenal, resulting in me being uber-excited to receive my clubs once the order came in.
I was fitted about 7 years ago when I bought my Cally X-18 Pros, except my lie angle was 5* upright. To this day, I always thought that was a bit extreme but went with it.
Then I got to the range. All the excitement and confidence were gone. Every shot was going dead right. Not a slice or fade, dead straight right. I'm a subscriber to the theory that "it's not the instrument, but the musician." After tinkering with my grip, swing, stance, and just about everything else I can think of to get the ball back to anything resembling a playable shot, I'm at my wit's end. And I couldn't hit my long irons worth a darn. I haven't had long iron problems in years, which is why I carry 3 and 4 irons instead of hybrids.
I was going to sign up for lessons, but my swing hasn't changed. I've always had a pretty straight ball flight, but with my Callys it was left. With Titleist it's right. I'm thinking a 1-2* lie adjustment may be in order. At least with my Callys, then tendency to hit left was playable, the Titleists are sadly unplayable for me right now. I want to love these clubs like I did when I was fit, but right now I feel like I spent a ton of money on a set that are soon going to be collecting dust.
Has anyone else had an experience like this after a club switch? And what you did you do to resolve the problem? Lessons, a club adjustment, or something else entirely?
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
