Mizuno fitting day Gleneagles

Sun Oct 01, 2017 9:45 am

Posted by seanmor


Attended the Mizuno Performance Centre at Gleneagles on Saturday to have a fitting for a new set of irons, 

My DNA numbers were 71,6,5,2,7 shaft recommendations were XP105 R flex, Nippon Modus 105 R flex
& KBS Tour C-Taper Lite R flex,

As a comparison the last DNA fitting I had done in Sep., 2012 my numbers were 77,7,4,4,5 with +2 deg lie and +1/2" in the shaft length recommended shaft was Project X 5.5, but to be honest I never really got on well with that shaft and after a further fitting I changed to the shaft I play now the XP 105 R flex, and Having one of the suggest shafts fitted in my JPX 850's gave me a bench mark to compare the performance of the other two shafts against, 

After discussions with the fitter and based on the DNA numbers Trackman data and his visual observations during the fitting I went with the JPX 900 Hot Metal range of irons fitted with KBS C-Taper Lite R flex shafts std length & Lie they gave me the best all round performance with a consistent 6 iron carry distance of 156-158 yards that's a gain of 6-8 yards of carry over the JPX 850 irons I play now,

After my fitting was concluded I got the chance to have a look round the Mizuno Tour truck and have a chat with the guys a great way to round off the day,

All in all an excellent and positive experience big thank you to Mizuno's Roland Fleming & Matt McIsaac who did my custom iron fitting and the guys on the tour truck,

Cheers John :D

Sounds like a great experience John. Roland certainly knows his stuff and made me fell happy with my last fitting. Great to see inside the tour truck. Hope the new clubs give you that little bit extra next season ;)

Hi David,

Yes it was, the guys took their time and put a lot of effort in to making sure I was happy with everything that was happening through the whole process never once putting any pressure on me to go one way or the other, I came away feeling I had had a proper custom fitting and unlike anything I've previously experienced and with a set of iron specifications that were suited to me,

The thing is we were only supposed to be at Gleneagles for a day out with my wife Netta and my daughter Gayle as they  had never been there before so Greg and I took them up for the day, imagine my surprise when we arrived to find that Mizuno was there with the Tour Truck what a lucky coincidence...! well you just cant pass up an opportunity like that came you so I asked nicely if they could fit me in for a fitting and they very kindly obliged,

We did however have a very nice lunch in the club house over looking the golf course and latter on some drinks up in the main [url]hotel[/url] so it wasn't all a wasted day ;)

Cheers John :D

That's exactly what I said when we got there "Fancy that who would believe it" even the Mrs was astonished at the  coincidence and that I should have such a stroke of luck...! ;)

I considered it a small price to pay Jonathan, just as long as the family were happy and enjoyed their day out...!

With a nice shiny new set of irons, I’m pretty sure you can finish next years forum day higher than this years John ;)

PS good to see Greg has doubled his post count in the space of a few minutes :)
