Default TXG

Anyone have first-hand experience with TXG? I appears to be Ian Fraser's new gig?

Burlington location is "Open Now" and Toronto location is "Opening Soon"?

If it is Ian doing the fittings and if Tracey is working there as well, I would go there over MG. And of course Benny (the dog).

The Toronto location is very close to my wife's business. I'm going check it once it opens. I wonder if this location will have the practice facilities as advertised. If so, I may have a new winter practice range.

This is really good news. And the fact that he has opened up very close to home is even better

Anyone get fit yet? Does Ian do the fittings? The $250 full bag seems very reasonable.

Stopped by to have a look last week. Very impressive to say the least. Digital Mitchell machine, shaft wall (ala MG), Trackman, build studio in the back. As of right now, yes, Ian is doing the fittings, as per our brief conversation. Not sure if he is going to stay on at Burlington or move to the (probably) more busy Toronto location and hire a fitter for Burlington. Not really my place to ask.

All in all, looks really good, and for a good price split between GT and MG, it might draw A LOT of attention.

I just got finished having my irons adjusted by Ian at TXG. Although I don't have much experience to draw on... I was very impressed with the service and pricing.

I'll be going back when it comes time to get some new woods

I dropped into the Burlington location on Friday and ended up chatting with Ian for over half an hour. We covered all sorts of topics (Callaway Epic drivers, SLT, shafts and putter fittings). Ian is extremely knowledgeable on anything to do with golf equipment.

While I have had extensive practice time using all of the latest and greatest technology, I have never had a fitting done by someone with Ian's expertise. This year I am going to approach things a little different, so before I left I booked a full set fitting.

Just got fitted for Dynamic Golf Tour X100 shafts at TXG. Ian and Greg are awesome. Great selection of shafts and clubs - and an overall amazing personalized experience as they had me set up on Trackman hitting a variety of shafts until we found something that worked for me.

I heard TXG is offering a complimentary fitting session for your entire bag.

I've never had my clubs fitted but assuming the "complimentary" part is them just advising you what they recommend to improve your game, and then you have to pay the cost to have those fitments made to your clubs?

Any one take advantage of this?
And a guestimate as to how much something like might possibly cost you in the end?

Is it normal to get the trackman data from the fitting or adjustments you've had?

I was hoping to get this for my iron adjustment since it gave me a good idea of my yardages....but I haven't heard back from them.

You should get the data within a few days. The info is all on the Trackman website itself rather than from TXG so they probably log in every now and then to upload and send out the info from recent fittings in batches.
