We all know that Golf is a game that’s difficulties can induce high levels of frustrations. So the one piece of advice we have is to make sure you have the right equipment. Don’t make it more difficult for yourself by using clubs that just don’t feel right.
Every golfer’s body and swing are unique to that individual and that’s what custom fitting is all about. Custom fitting golf clubs involves a quick self assessment of your game and several easy measurements. To custom fit your golf clubs, the following information is needed:
• Your gender (male or female)
• Your height in your stockings or socks
• The distance from your wrist (where it bends) to the floor (without shoes)
• What club you use at the 135 meter marker
• Handicap, age, swing speed
Firstly, your gender is used to put you into the correct fitting scale. Then, your height and the distance in inches from your wrist to the floor are used together to determine the length of golf club that is appropriate for you. (About 80% of golfers are Standard length.)
Your age, handicap, estimated golf swing speed and club you use at the 135 meter marker are all combined to determine the shaft flex that is appropriate for you.

For me the cost of fly fishing on the local tarns and lakes in Cumbria was becoming a bit too much. I had a young family and fishing was starting to be put on the back burner, simply due to cost. This lead me to look for more cheaper options to take part in the sport I love. Only living 2 minutes from the cliffs, beaches and piers of Whitehaven I decided to give sea fishing a revisit as it is what i had done when just a boy.
I had a rough idea of equipment needed, i knew it consisted of rod, reel, line and tackle. So with this in mind i headed to my local tackle shop for a quick browse.
I’m always on the look out for a bargain, or always trying to do something on the cheap. With a idea of what I wanted I started browsing online, looking at forums and tackle reviews for the best…. but cheapest options. I come accross a rod and reel combo on eBay for only £64, I can’t remember the exact model but i remember it was a shakespeare set up of some sort. I bought some ready made rigs from my local tackle shop with some frozen mackerel and headed off to the west pier in Whitehaven, needless to say I blanked. Blanked but not put off all together.
So your thinking of starting sea fishing? Here’s a head start.
The world we live in is growing increasingly fast-paced, stressful, and filled with responsibility. Because of this, everyone needs some time to relax and have some recreation. Our modern way of life also tends to be sedentary, and the meals we eat are often not very healthy. Exercise is a very important component in renewing us. For these reasons, sports recreation activities are some of the best recreation we can choose. There are many options for hobbies to provide sports recreation. You may even want to learn some new recreational sports skills.
Courses to learn new sports recreation skills can be found online and in larger cities. You can learn and participate in team sports through the local Y and other organizations. Team sports recreation activities you might like to participate in include softball, baseball, basketball, and sometimes soccer for younger people. Another team sport you might enjoy is bowling. Regardless of your skill level you can find a bowling team to have fun with.
Individual sports recreation activities you can learn and participate in include golf, tennis, running, aerobic dance, gymnastics, and horseback riding. Don’t overlook bicycling and weight training too. Many of these sports can be learned at the local Y as well. For some of these, you’ll want to have a friend to play against or share the exerience with. Many runners, for instance, like to run with a friend. And games like tennis and handball really need cooperation for best results.
