    if i was told this at a fitting id take my money and go and get fitted by someone else. after a proper fitting with Alex at Orka clubs were right from day 1 as they built for me rather than me having to get used to them
    In the bag:
    TM M1 9.5 degree
    TM M1 17 degree hybrid
    Orka RS1/RS3 Irons 3-PW
    Orka RS10 Wedges 52,56,60

    I don't buy that at all. If it takes you that long to get used to clubs you've bought the wrong ones. I once bought a new set & got shots off my handicap the first round I played with them.

    Er, he's a highly skilled pro. The average player probably doesn't swing the same way twice &, in any case, I bet he doesn't change his swing to suit the clubs.

    Personally I'd get a second opinion before doing anything as I wouldn't trust an AG fitting. If it's still the same then look around if money's tight. What shaft spec were you after (regular/stiff etc). Looks like Golfbidder only have six sets in and none seem to indicate the lie is anything but standard
