Golf Club Fitting by Swing Timing
How can the FitChip club fitting system offer a fitting better than any other club fitting system currently in the golf industry? None of the other systems considers the timing of the player’s swing. Many will say clubhead speed is a form of timing, and it does relate to how much time it takes the clubhead to get from one position to another. If the golf shaft was rigid, clubhead speed would not change even mater.
However, the shaft, for the sake of weight, is flexible. Because of that, what happens to the shaft during the downswing is critical to its response and timing to provide the player with peak performance.
We know that the peak performance of the club will occur when it is back to straight at ball impact. At this point, the clubhead is back to the square, and the shaft kick is contributing its peak addition to the player's applied clubhead speed.
The FitChip was developed to record how the player loads and unloads the shaft. This is where the critical timing of the players swing comes into play. Two players with the same clubhead speed can have different shaft loading patterns that result in different shaft release times during the swing. This means that each player has a different time for the shaft to return to straight in his swing.
To match this difference in time, to each player's timing, the stiffness of the two shafts must be different. By using shaft frequency (the most accurate measure of shaft stiffness) we can select the stiffness/frequency of the shaft that will get back to straight and square at ball impact. Then by tipping a selected shaft to get the exact frequency for the club, within tolerance, we provide the player with his best performance possible with that club.

This is our FitChip on the club swing analyzer. The analyzer records how you load and unload the Golf Shaft to establish your swing timing. The frequency of the club can then be matched to your swing timing by selecting the correct frequency shaft to get the club back to straight and square at ball impact.
