Why Kustom Clubs
Over 35 years experience in manufacturing and repairing golf clubs have shown us that 85% of golfers play with equipment that does not fit. Golfers can get more out of their golf game with professionally fitted custom clubs at a price lower than off-the-rack clubs which have been mass produced to fit a generic profile.
Like fingerprints, no two golfers are alike. Most important, with fitted golf clubs, all incorrect variables are eliminated giving you more time to concentrate on improving your swing. Our exclusive D·R·S Fitting System takes into consideration over 35 different variables. A few of the variables we measure include:
Using state of the art computers, Doppler radar and our own personally designed fitting program, D·R·S Fitting System, you can be assured of having the finest professionally fit custom clubs available. Over 35 of variables are considered when creating your individual profile, including height, swing speed, tempo, hand size, and lie angle – just to mention a few. These variables are collected during the fitting, then analyzed to create a blueprint of your perfect fit. Because of our commitment to quality custom clubs, we demand strict controls in the weights and tolerance of our clubs. We weigh each grip, shaft and clubhead. Using our exclusive D·R·S Fitting System we profile each shaft, and hand bend the loft and lie of each club to the particular golfer we are fitting. Unlike the large manufacturers who mass produce assembly line clubs, our golf clubs are individually handcrafted in our shop by “Master Clubfitter Technicians”.
Proper clubfitting is the key to lower scores. Let Kustom Clubs insure a proper fitting to reward your skill. We will manufacture your “Precision Tuned Instruments” one club at a time unlike mass produced assembly line clubs. Play the same clubs touring professionals worldwide play with, “Professionally Fitted”. Kustom Clubs come with a limited lifetime warranty as long as you own the set.
UST golf shafts have become a very important part of our fitting system. The variety of shafts and consistency have made them one of our biggest sellers.
