Mizuno Shaft Optimizer
Another dynamic shaft fitting tool we are using is the Mizuno Shaft Optimizer. This system uses a test club with sensors, similar to the Shaft Lab, to determine several critical factors about how you load the golf shaft: Swing or Club Speed, Tempo, Toe Down, Kickpoint and Release factor. The system uses a numeric scale from 1 to 9 which is then interpreted by the Mizuno Shaft Optimizer software. From there, Mizuno’s system recommends specific shafts that will optimize your performance. While this system is a great tool for club fitters, it only recommends shafts that are available from Mizuno in either their stock or custom department. D’Lance Golf”s BGF fitting system uses the Shaft Optimizer numbers to make more detailed and specific shaft recommendations for shafts from 18 manufacturers with more being added every year.
