I want new stuff and am considering getting fitted for new clubs, starting with the Driver, later for irons.

I purchased my current Driver 'off the rack' about 4 yrs ago and am wondering what other peoples' experiences have been.

Was it worth it? Distance/accuracy (dispersion) gains? Anything you wish you knew going into it?

Any feedback is appreciated (and please no snide comments about how I should get fitted for a putter instead, thanks).

You should be fitted for a putter instead! Laughing Couldn't help myself.

Seriously, you should definitely get fitted for a driver, but make sure it is from a good fitter. Just don't go into a big box store and take what they tell you as gospel. I did that and was disappointed. I ended up totally changing the set up and replacing the shaft after I bought their recommendation. They tried me on no more than three options and two settings (adjustable driver). Go to a real fitter. Someone who specializes in it. It's not that expensive.

Ditto! Fitting will not only help you get the right stuff for your swing, it'll also help you learn a lot about your game. Oh, and the putter fitting - abso-freakin-lutely do it!

Along with DougE and Barbajo, Definitely worth the effort.
