START HITTING LONG, STRAIGHT DRIVES!
Wishon 919THI Driver features Graduated Roll Technology
A unique vertical face design that ensures more consistent loft up and down the face. Every large golf company (Taylormade, Ping, Callaway and Titleist) use a 10" to 12" vertical roll radius up and down the club face which means the loft of the metalwoods will be as much as 3-4° lower on the bottom of the face and 3-4° higher on the top of the face. Graduated Roll Technology face design delivers a far more consistent launch angle over the entire club face for much more consistent distance and flight for every type of golfer.
Custom Club Product Online Fitting
Condor Golf has the most comprehensive online club fitting when buying our custom fit clubs. It takes into account every single aspect of the club fitting process plus it is incredibly easy to follow. All that is required is honesty with regard to your ability. Golfers have a tendency to remember only their great shots and forget the not-so-great shots. And we understand that, but it is important to get a complete understanding of the players strengths and weaknesses. Then we can help the golfer to get the best possible club to not only maximize the great shots but also help eliminate the bad shots.
What Is The Best Set Make-up?
It used to be that golfers would buy a driver, 3 wood, 5 wood and a set of irons, 3-PW. Even a recent shift to iron sets of 4-GW still leaves the average golfer with two of the irons with too little loft that many golfers can’t hit well enough to merit carrying them in the bag.
Thus, the common sense goal of set makeup fitting will always be to replace all clubs that the golfer cannot hit consistently well with clubs that hit the ball the same distance, but are easier to hit.
First we have to find out the lowest-lofted wood and the lowest-lofted iron that the golfer can hit with reasonable consistency in terms of getting the ball up in the air and to fly between the tree lines of the hole. Consistency in hitting the ball well up in the air is key because we can always reduce slice or hook with a length and face angle change in the replacement wood and/or hybrid.
If the golfer cannot hit the 3-wood or 4-wood well up in the air at least 4 of 6 times, the club should NOT be in the bag. It is far better to have the first wood after the driver be a 5-wood (or 7-wood) that the golfer can hit up in the air more than 90 percent of the time and give up a little distance, than to keep hoping for the right swing to be able to hit lower-lofted woods. A 9-wood should also be considered as it is easy to control and get the ball airborne.
In terms of the irons, obviously we are talking about replacing low-lofted irons with hybrids or high-lofted fairway woods. Within this is also the matter of what lofts and lengths in the higher-lofted woods are going to deliver the same distance the golfer would have gotten if he or she were to hit the lower-lofted irons well.
Length wise, it is just so much wiser to fit hybrids with the same length as the irons being replaced because that leads to a more consistent distance gap between the lowest lofted iron and the hybrid just above it. Loft wise, it depends on the golfer’s clubhead speed.
The higher the club head speed (typically more than 80 mph with the 6 iron), the more likely it is that the replacement woods or hybrids may need to have a little more loft than the irons being replaced to offer the right distance and distance gap between the last hybrid or fairway wood and the first iron.
As to whether to go to a high-lofted wood or hybrid for the iron replacements, the club fitter consults two things:
- The more the golfer sweeps the ball rather than hits down on the ball, the more likely that high-lofted woods will be a golfer’s iron replacements.
- The golfer’s personal preference/opinion as to whether they are more comfortable or confident with a fairway wood or a hybrid is also key to the selection of the low-loft iron replacement clubs.
Club head speed also plays a role in the set makeup determination. The slower the club head speed, the shorter the distance gap from normal 4-degree loft increments between clubs. Why saddle a slower speed player with a combination of 13 woods and irons when a 4-degree loft gap offers only 6-to-7 yards of difference between each club?
Set makeup fitting is really a test of the golfer’s common sense and control over their ego. To play consistently well, golf shall forever be a game of percentages and good misses. Smart set makeup fitting involves using clubs that give the golfer a higher percentage of consistent shots to improve both the percentage of quality shots and good misses.
