    So you have been Custom Fitted. What next?

    My son has come into some money and fancies getting custom fitted for his irons. He can see the price for the fitting from a reputable club pro but what neither of know is what happens next. They give him the sheet with all of the sizes, shafts, lofts etc, then what?

    Can he give a limit, say £500, and ask whether they would fit him for last years irons that have depreciated to that level, or are you always tied to getting the latest models?

    Forget the fitting price, what is the likely or average price for clubs that have been fitted? I am assuming it is different to the headline figures that you see on an AG / Clubhouse Golf website for example but how different?

    Numbers would be appreciated as a guide. If anyone is embarrassed about putting a number up then please pm me, I will not repeat it on the site or quote it to your wife, husband, partner etc

    Go and speak to the pro and see what he can offer

    Anytime I have been fit I have gone to the pro , we have tried some irons , I have picked a set and then be fit for them

    You can go to some places and get a custom fit who then give you your details and then you can order any set from those details

    And the cost will be determined by the irons being picked

    He wants to avoid being fitted, getting excited and then finding the bill to be £1,000. He wants an idea of whether it is feasible or whether it is something to do in a few more years. The budget is not limitless.

    I would go to two or three AG stores - get fitted at all three - decide what he wants - then shop around for the best deal knowing his specs

    Depends, not a great answer but there you go.

    Depends what brand, who fits you, what model etc

    For instance if you go for Mizuno and go to one of their dealers then the custom fitting is free and you will be paying the sticker price on their website.

    You could speak to a club builder like Designer Golf, give Steve your budget and ask him some questions he's very good as giving honest advice. If he cannot do it he will tell you where you can.

    Without knowing his handicap, club preference and budget it's a bit difficult to give you any more detail

    Most of the prices you see on the AG websites and places like Clubhouse will be the ballpark figure

    My recent customs fit for just irons - 3-PW was just over £1k

    The best person to speak to is a pro - tell the pro his budget and the Pro can see what he can be fit for

    Titleist irons sets are around 700-800
    Srixon - around £600
    TM - from 700-1000
    Callaway - the same as TM
    Wilson staff - £500-700
    Ping - £600-700
    Cobra £600 - 800
    Mizuno £600-£1000

    The prices will be on the labels at the clubs shops or internet

    There should be no hidden costs - just ask

    Cheers folks. That was what I was looking for. It is the no hidden cost bit, no surprises. He, and I, didn't want to look like idiots after what should be a fun thing to do.

    The only thing I would say about AG is that they have all brands - all my local pros have maybe two and they all want a £60 fitting fee

    Re: So you have been Custom Fitted. What next?

    Keep an eye out at local clubs, as some have Brand Fitters come and do fitting events.

    I play Srixon clubs and they have a fitting Van that travels all around the country (which is free), this includes Cleveland products. http://www.srixon.co.uk/on/demandwar...GB/Events-Find

    Equally, look at which clubs your son can afford and look to get them fitted. No point going to get fitted for some Titleist's when you know well in advance you can't afford them.
    AG is a little bit hit and miss reading on here, so its not a bad idea going and having a hit in store (its free after all) and trying a range of clubs, at the end you have no need to buy.

    If looking at Titleist clubs check out Titleist Thursdays, free fitting dates that you can book appointments for and get all the specs and then find the best price else where.
