Club fitting center

About a year ago I read a Golf Digest article that talked about a club
company (I beleive it was Titlest). In there they were discussing a very
decent approach in club fitting.

The idea was to try different shaft flexes, flex points and swing
weights to see which combination was best for you based on average
distance and dispersion.

Does anyone know if there is such a facility in or around Northern
California ?

I think any decent clubfitter should end up giving you close to the
"right" combination. I've got Dynacraft iron heads that I had altered at
a Golfsmith centre. My son already has a set of Henry-Griffitt irons,
and both he and I have just bought a couple of HG woods! So in a sense
I've experienced a gamut of fitting options.

As far as HG is concerned, I have found that their screw-in head system
enables you to try a wider range of flexes, kickpoints, lengths etc.
before purchase. We were fitted at a range, where we could see the ball
flight of each option e.g. trajectory, distance, fade/draw etc. In fact,
I was pretty well stuffed after hitting the ball so much!

Personally I found this much more enlightening than hitting into a net,
where while you can "feel" the club you can only see the first few
metres of your shot. I actually tried a number of other woods (Infiniti,
GBB, Cobra) at the same time, and all showed a tendency to a weak fade
that I wouldn't pick up just hitting into a net.

The downside is the high cost of their clubs compared to other component
manufacturers, although they do only use the very best True Temper
shafts.
