Had a fitting with Dan at Bearwood Lakes earlier today. Really knowledgable and a great experience, despite me finding myself unable to hit any sort of shot after about 30 minutes into the fit.

Gave some really good feedback on what to be looking for and I've come away with a great idea on what i'm going to go for next (most likely a set of MP25's).

Highly recommended.

I have a fitting with Dan at Bearwood Lakes booked for Saturday, it's been 4 years since last fitting on Swing DNA so will be interested to see what changes to my swing and iron technology has brought. 

Am considering JPX 900 forged or maybe MP25s, but will see what Dan and system recommends.

Hey guys, thought I'd report back on my fitting session with Dan yesterday at Bearwood Lakes Performance Centre.

I arrived 35 mins early and was pointed to their range where free balls were available to warm up before the session. It's a bit of a walk and was foggy so had wondered if I was heading to the right place!  After starting on my current T4 54 dgeree, then jpx 825 pro 8 & 6 irons to warm up, Dan came to find me. I found him really knowledgeable and a great experience during the hour helping me to relax and talk about my game. He started by asking what the main reason I had came for and what I was hoping to find from the fitting session.  It's been 4 years since I was fitted for my JPX 925 Pro's so was interested in a little extra yardage but more about consistent strike and tighter dispersion grouping. My swing is in reasonable shape and I know I'm never going to be the longest.

We started on the new DNA software and gave readings of 79, 3, 2, 3, 8. This came out with a few shaft recommendations and having tried the top 3, settled on the KBS Tour 90 Stiff. My second choice was the Nippon Modus 105 S, which gave me a mid-high flight, more penetrating than my current shaft with the 900 Forged heads. But overall the butt and tip feel from the KBS also gave me 2 mph increase in ball speed and dispersion of only 8 yards as opposed to 12 yards with the Modus. Having also tried the 900 hot Metal (and boy does it fly off the club face), but gave me too high flight and less feedback off the face, plus a little harder to shape due to spin rates, so not quite what I'm looking for these days, but if starting out these would go in the bag whilst my game improved.

The look and feel of the 900 forged were lovely, so the last head Dan passed me without telling my was the MP25's, which although I felt I hit well, there was a couple yards drop off in carry distance and I just couldn't get same accuracy as the 900 forged.  Guess my swing speed not quite up to hitting these beauties. I "felt" the weight in the club head a little more noticeable.  So I will probably go with hot metal in 4 & 5 with 900 forged in 6-pw. Then a bit of time with the new T7 wedges which I prefer in white satin, I'm a traditionalist although the blue are nice. Fitting on distance gapping is 50-07, 55-09, 60-10 wedges. 

I have booked a session to come back for the new JPX 900 driver and woods in early February which he said Jon & he had hit that week & had been very impressed and then later that day had a nice email from Dan confirming very good pricing and thanking me for the fitting. Overall a very pleasant experience which I'd recommend to everyone.

Anyone recommend a fitting centre in the North East (Redcar).

I was fitted for my current irons by Karl @ GolfWorx when he was located at Yarm, but he has moved further North now. Can anyone recommend anywhere, otherwise it will be a drive out to Snainton about an hour away.

Thanks

I had a fitting up at Close House Steve.  Pretty decent set up and good staff.  They also had a wide range of Titleist custom fitting gear and Callaway I think.  Not too far for a fitting and even time for a quick round!
