Yesterday I went to get fitted for the 714 AP1. Thought this was not my first fitting, it's been a while since I've had one done so I thought instead of getting "rack" clubs, I would get fit.
I chose this off course shop (not a name brand store) that does fittings and sells clubs because I was getting my car fixed and had some time to burn. Living about 2 hours away from big box stores, I visited this place before and he said that he has done numerous fittings and mine shouldn't any different. This place did not have an outside range but a cart fitting system with the latest in shafts and heads, so I made an appointment.
The fitting was very much normal except that he didn't take measurements for length, but did use a lie board and tape to see where my hit pattern was. Bottom line when it was done:
I was fit for 2* upright with an R shaft hard stepped. I never had upright clubs before let alone hard stepping the shaft. Of course I bit the bullet and said OK, plopped down my money and left all the while thinking "2* upright and a r hard stepped shaft".
The question I have, has anyone had their shafts hard stepped or really soft stepped for that matter, and does it make a difference?
I hope I didn't blow-it
