You can talk about clubs as much as you want. In the end it’s the performance on the course that counts. That’s why we don’t care much about detailed product descriptions that explain some great patents or features. We want to see how the clubs behave in practice to get the best result for each player.
In the daily fitting practice this can already be observed very well. These fittings are, however, for various reasons not necessarily suitable to publish usable results. Therefore we take everything into our own hands with our club and shaft tests. We consider interesting topics and comparisons and then test them to achieve meaningful results.
This often means just changing a small detail and keeping the rest. This is the only way to draw conclusions about this detail. For example a change in swing weight, shaft, lie, club head, loft, shaft length, etc. There are many possibilities. It is important to find the right test setup and use it in the right test environment.
This also requires different player strengths. So it makes little sense to have a light iron graphite shaft tested on by a professional. Or a blade from a beginner. Therefore we vary accordingly with test subjects and swings.
