PostSubject: Custom Fitting in Jakarta   Sat Oct 27, 2012 12:13 am

Last year I visited a custom fitting shop located in Jakarta. About 20 minutes from the Sudirman area. The service is top notch and the fitter is super friendly. They have a wide variety of driver shafts from Japan and USA. The price is about the same to what you see on most online stores. For example: Aldila NVS is selling for $50. Same what you see on most online store.

The service is also super fast. I waited only one hour to get my driver reshafted/regripped with Aldila NVS shaft. They sell these brands:
Aldila
Fujikura
Diamana
Sk Fiber
Graphite Design
True Temper
NS Pro


REVIEW on my fitted driver:
Before I installed the Aldila NVS on my driver, my driver shot was like all over the place. Very inconsistent to say the least. Now with the installed Aldila NVS, I'm more consistent off the tee and generally my shot are straight. Thanks to RBK for doing the Spine alignment and fit the right driver length to me. I would say Aldila NVS is not a boardy shaft and flex according to my swing speed.

I guess so, TopGolf have many variety unless is fitted by the Boss Lucky.
Jkt has many other fitting shop these days. should try n see all.
Fitting ur driver within 1 hour is abit dangerous, as i guess they use fast quick dry epoxy.
Is still best to use 24hrs dry epoxy for maximun strenght.
Thanks n cheers mate.

a bit dangerous? hahaha. Not dangerous lah having a fast service like that.
I can't come back to the same shop the next day because I don't live in Jakarta.

Well I know I can't use it until 24 hours. The fitter told me that.

My driver is still intact until now. No twisting like you said.

hi rkangrah.
Great ur driver is good n well assemble.
Just a small advise only.
once any clubs is been assemble, as long as within 3 to 4 hours it is not put into a golf bag is fine. it might get twister if the epoxy is not dry.

Just for your info. I am a Pro Class A Certified clubfitter.

as long as the club assemble know what he is doing n give u the advise to play it after 24 hours. is well advise.

Thanks n cheers mate

@pushslice:

Why are you checking their domain name? Suspicious.....

What are you trying to find mr. Pushslice?

rkangrah@gmail.com is the domain name contact. It so happen I use the same username here on GR. So what?

I've seen "pushslice" nickname before on another forum. Does it mean it was you?

Maybe a huge fan of rkangrah of RBK and a super regular of the shop. Imitation is the highest compliment some may say.

I think there's a Club fitter in Surabaya. Add thirty if I'm not wrong.

Search on google, you might get the address.
