21 Should I buy Name Brand Clubs, or CustomFit/CustomBuilt Clubs?

21 Should I buy Name Brand Clubs, or CustomFit/CustomBuilt Clubs?


That is a choice left up to the reader. Keep in mind these factors when
making a decision:

1. CustomFit/CustomBuilt clubs are just that. They are built according
to current swing characteristics. Name Brand clubs are built based
on an "average" golfer.
2. CustomFit/CustomBuilt clubs are generally less expensive than Name
Brand clubs.
3. CustomFit/CustomBuilt clubs may have less of a resale value than
Name Brand clubs.

The most compelling reason to buy CustomFit/CustomBuilt clubs is the
fact that they are built for you. Although price may be a
consideration, don't make it top priority. If it is you may not have
enough confidence in your clubs, which could result in more harm than
good.

You should also note that most Name Brand club manufacturers will make
up a set to your custom specifications. You could order a set of
Titleist DCI's, for instance, with a nonstandard length and lie angle.
The "customization" will usually involve an increase in the purchase
price, and well as add several weeks to delivery.
