I have has some lessons and my swing is much improved - So now I'm looking to get a fitting
I'm most interested in a Driver fitting as my instructor made some changes to my irons already (lie, length, grip etc), and my driver is the oldest club in my bag by quite a bit.

So what is the best fitter in South East Michigan?
I've seen other topics on this subject, but Club Champion has just opened in the area, so they aren't mentioned in the old threads.

Top places seem to be; Carls Golfland, Miles of Golf and Club Champion.
I'm open to an other options as well

I'm not going into this convinced that I'm definitely going to buy a new driver, but I am very interested in the data. I've never had any kind of data collected from my swing, so I have no idea where my spin numbers are, launch angle, AoA, etc... Looking for some more ways to make my game better, or at least learn more about it.

Miles of Golf has my vote just due to the amount of shafts available to try. Carlís is good, but when I asked for specific shafts they didnít have them available or only in one weight and flex. I am closer to Carlís and spend much time there, but always made the drive to Miles for the options.

I would go Miles as well. Ive been fitted at both locations and I feel like Miles is slightly better overall as far as club/shaft options go.  You wont be disappointed in either place

Miles by far, Carls is a great place if you know what you already want but for fitting Miles is the place to go. Miles charge $50 for a complete driver fitting but 100% goes towards the driver, as Carls only a portion goes towards the purchase.

Another place that I've used and really like the guys that work there and because there's NO pressure in buying is Pro Golf in Southgate. It's a small place (mom & pop shop) but they know their stuff, and the manufactures reps seam to hang out there to.

I haven't been there in ages.  I bought my first set of clubs from them about 25 years ago, back when there used to be a lot of companies in the golf game.  I know they had the hitting area on the side, are they doing full fittings now with different shaft combinations?  I remember they would also have that balloon sale, never did get more than 10% off.
