Has anyone else been clicking these with a slight sense of morbid curiosity :) I’m eagerly awaiting the next instalment.

Hey, while waiting for the set ordered, we could share a few gems from the “you shall get fitted” frontlines?
Major golf franchise here in Germany. Me coming in for a fitting by appointment.
Friendly sales guy.
His static fitting: “how tall are you?” done. no wrist to floor measuring or such.

Me asking “how do we start. Shall we do a few swings with the Mizuno SwingDNA device?”
Fitter: ”no, I usually don’t like the shafts it suggests. Strange device.”
...
Me: “I heard good things about the Nippon 120. can I try it?”
Fitter: “almost nobody can play that shaft, very heavy, and stiffy”
...
Me (after hitting a few shots on their trackman sim): “I think the dispersion is better with this one, compared to the 105. Do you see that also?”
Fitter: “dispersion? most people are looking for the distance.”

Me: “this shaft feels great.” (modus 120)
Fitter: “very strange, you hit it faster than the 105. very strange.”

Me: “is this the heavier or the lighter head?”
Fitter: “what do you mean? what lighter head?”
Me: “afaik Mizuno makes also lighter heads for longer clubs, for keeping the SW within range.”
Fitter, laughing, turns to colleague in other bay: “Mizuno makes also lighter heads, have you ever heard?”
(colleague tells him he heard about it at a Mizuno seminar)
...

etc. etc.
You pay for their fitting... (if you buy the clubs, it’s credit toward the purchase.)

Getting a set of Mizuno irons is a bit like the fairy tale of the sleeping beauty.
You have to be a fearless warrior, fighting your way through many obstacles and thorny bushes, in order to find the sleeping beauty in the end. ;)

How is the state of the art of club fitting in your neck of the woods?
