Frequently Asked Fitting Questions
What are the differences between a Basixx Cluboratory and a Maxx Cluboratory Fitting?
First of all, both of these fittings are of exception high quality and most golfers will be satisfied with either one. The goals are the same, to help golfers find equipment that will improve their game.
Probably the biggest difference between the two is the use of the TrackMan ball flight monitor throughout the Maxx Fittings. It does give the club fitters more information to help with the testing and fitting process, but it uses very expensive equipment and is time consuming so therefore more costly. Even with this equipment, the club fitters will still closely observe the ball in its full flight just as they do with the Basixx fitting. For an experienced club-fitter, observing the ball flight is critically important to performing their job. The Basixx fitting takes ball flight measurements using a Game Changer monitor, but does not monitor every shot.
Golfers who are really into the game and want to thoroughly examine exotic shaft options will love the Maxx Fittings. If you have a less intense interest in the game but still want high quality clubs that fit, the Basixx Cluboratory fittings are perfect for you.
This sounds great but it must be expensive.
Club-makers charge us the same for custom clubs or stock clubs. Therefore, the price of our custom clubs should be the same as any national retailer would charge for off-the-shelf sets. For a Basixx Fitting, the fitting fees are fully refundable with a purchase. For a Maxx Fitting the fees are partially refundable with a purchase.
Are appointments necessary to get fit?
Appointments are required for all fittings and can be made by calling 877.973.9005 (Ann Arbor) or 513.870.9057 (Cincinnati).
What if I’m an average player?
Actually, better golfers probably can adapt to ill-fitting clubs better than average golfers. Golf becomes easier for everyone with clubs adapted to you instead of you adapting to your clubs.
Who customizes my clubs?
The simple answer is both the club maker and Miles of Golf may customize your clubs. It is important to note that when we say club maker we mean companies like Titleist, TaylorMade, Callaway, etc. One typical scenario is that Miles of Golf sends the club maker your specs and the clubs are built and shipped back to either Miles of Golf or the customer directly. A second scenario is that Miles of Golf has your clubs in stock with minor modifications required or it is a club with adjustability built into the design of the club. In these cases, Miles does the modification and/or adjustments in house.
I’m impatient, how long does it take to get my clubs?
Delivery time varies with club-makers and the time of the year. For 2021, we are telling players to expect the clubs in 6-8 weeks. All manufacturers are well behind on custom orders. The benefits of getting quality clubs made specifically for you can be extremely significant to how well they perform. Simply put, it’s well worth the wait.
I have certain distances that my current clubs fail me. Can a club fitting help with that?
Part of fitting is selecting which clubs should be in your bag. Stock iron sets come in a standard configuration that may not fit your game. If this is the case, you are paying with clubs you should not be using. When ordering custom clubs, our club fitters help you determine which clubs you should be carrying. This can sometimes make custom club sets less expensive than off- the- shelf set.
