Trackman vs Mizuno DNA

Sorry if this has been covered before.
I went to see a well known U-tube reviewer yesterday to look at the 64's.
I mentioned a DNA fitting and he said he doesn't use the DNA fitting as he used Trackman instead.
It looks to me like the DNA measures shaft flex and the Trackman measures ball flight. Both useful information but which is best for iron fitting ?

Yup any decent fitting will use some kind of launch monitor. The swing DNA is a bit of a short cut to finding the general type of shaft that suits your swing, but it is just a starting point. Real world data hitting balls is the only way to see if a shaft really works.

A good fitter might not use the DNA but it's a great tool to find a starting point in the shaft fitting process and can save a great deal of trial and error, especially for the casual user. With brief training, it's a fool proof system for identifying "ball park" shaft specs.

If you ever go to a Mizuno demo day or fitting, the fitter will have BOTH!

DNA is the starting point, Trackman will do the fine tuning and checking to see if the DNA recommendations are working.

The DNA system takes the guesswork out of the first 60% of the fitting process!

I went to Rotherham to be fitted for irons before the DNA thing came out. I was on a Trackman and the data suggested that the lightweight Nippon 1150GH Tour stiff were the shafts I need and they are great. When the DNA came out I went and had a go on it just to see if what I had been fitted was right or not. After 3 swings the result was I needed a lightweight shaft, and my 3rd shaft option it gave me was a Nippon GH950 Stiff, 2 models down from what I have.

Does the DNA work? In my view yes it does and you be a fool to not do it. It's just a pity that the DNA system can't be done with the woods as I would jump at it.
