I have to say, robot's response kind of bothers me. I don't mind looking at a book at Barnes & Noble and buying it online, since B&N hasn't really given me any service other than having the book on its shelf.

If you ask a store (which is, after all, made up of people like you and me, that are trying to make a living) to:

1) custom fit you with several different price levels of clubs
2) loan you clubs and make recommendations based on what you tell them and
3) repeat this process until you finally get the clubs you like.

then it seems to me that you owe it to the shop and salesman to go ahead and buy your clubs there, even if they cost $50 or $100 more than www.cheapgolfstuffff.com (btw...don't bother, I made it up<g>).

It's this type of behavior that has driven "mom and pop" shops out of business and caused us to be the land of WalMart and other megastores where service is a forgotten term.

Sorry for getting on a soapbox, but I feel that when people perform a service for you (that you requested), you shouldn't stiff them.
