If you have not attended a demo day where several manufacturers show up with all of their club options you have really missed the boat. Seeing ball flight and talking to a representative from the company that makes the clubs is very different from hitting into a net indoors with the salesman from the golf store advising you.
Having the opportunity to hit one brand versus several others and comparing the feel and the performance is the only way to go! I went to the Carlsbad Golf Demo day last Friday to do just this and I found out that the brand I thought I wanted to buy did not compare to another brand that I did order their clubs.
There is no charge for this kind of event and it is fantastic.
