Why Wishon clubheads?
Tom has authored eight books on club-making, shaft-fitting and research, and custom club-fitting. Even more notable in Wishon’s career is the fact that he is credited with more than 50 golf industry design technology firsts and is the only designer from the custom club-making industry to have created models which have been used to win on the PGA Tour and in Ryder Cup competitions.
Wishon clubheads are hand-picked to exact loft and face angles to ensure that what you were fitted to is what you get, This is unheard of in the OEM line of clubs where the tolerance can be + or – 1 to 2 degrees. In other words, a driver purchased off the shelf that is stamped 10.5 degrees could range from 9 to 12 degrees or more.

What does custom Fitting Actually do? by Tom Wishon
Do I have to be a better player for custom clubs to matter?
“Now, let’s be clear—I am not saying that by being custom fit you can somehow go from being an average player to qualifying for next year’s U.S. Open. Buying new clubs—even truly custom fitted ones—is NOT a substitute for learning and “grooving” the proper swing fundamentals. It never has been. It never will be.
I AM saying, however, that equipment that doesn’t fit—the wrong length, lie, loft, shaft, face angle, grip, flex, or weight—will keep you from being all that you could be as a golfer. I have worked with a lot of teaching professionals and I can assure you, golfers who take lessons with properly fit clubs adapt to swing coaching much faster and more successfully than golfers who take lessons using golf clubs that are poorly fit.
The idea of custom fitting is to have clubs in which each fitting specification is matched to your size, strength, athletic ability, and your swing characteristics. For each club in the bag, the proper custom fitting specifications can reduce some of the shot mistakes caused by your less skilled swing. In addition, professionally custom fit clubs do not typically cost more than what you would pay for standard-made clubs off-the-rack. “ – Tom Wishon
