  1. Playing for a year now and want to really invest in a solid set i can play with. When i watch videos of fitting everything seems to make sense and looks great. My problem is when they start introducing shafts that are more expensive then the actual club. Obviously I'm competitive and golf is not my first sport so i want the best clubs that are going to work for me. But is a fitting necessary? Or do i just try out the different stock options and go with the best in that area?

    Go get fit!!!! It's the only way to get the correct club setup for you. Find a Titleist Thursday event near you and book an appointment...it's free. The fitting will typically last 45 minutes and if you are looking for a complete bag make over, then book 2 back-to-back sessions.

    There are a fair amount of available shafts and not all have an uncharge. Look through the custom options booklet, they is a lot of information you can review before going to a fitting.

    I would strongly recommend a fitting. I played for many years with stock clubs, bought off the shelf. When I finally did a fitting, I found my clubs had been completely wrong for me. The improvement to my overall game was significant. Now, I will not buy a club without being fit.

    Always get a fitting. While shafts are extremely important, length, lie angle, grips, are also components that can affect the overall result.

    Also, a fitting is almost like a lesson. The fitter will identify bits and pieces of your swing and make adjustments as necessary. Every fitting I've had is either free or if there was a charge, it's applied to your purchase. Unless of course you go to Oceanside or the mothership for a fitting.

    Long story short, I highly recommend getting fit as I suspect just about anyone else on the TT boards will say the same.
  5. You should get fit, but limit it to shafts without an up charge. It's important to know if your swing speed requires a stiff or regular shaft, no need for an exotic shaft if you have only been playing for a year!! Length and lie to fit your specific swing requirements is also determined in a standard fitting.

    I totally believe in fittings, especially to know flex and lie requirements. There are quite a few shafts in the drivers and irons that do not require an up-charge. You can find them listed in the club catalog following the website links under the clubs. Nothing wrong with finding the fit that works best for you without going the extra cost of a specialized shaft. If you do a Titleist Thursday, you will probably be offered mostly standard shafts. If you go to one of the indoor non-Titleist fitters that carry everything, they might be more likely to put you in something exotic.
  7. Without a doubt go get fitted. As others have noted above, Titleist has a great selection of shafts with zero up charge and I'm sure you would find one that suits you.
