I had fun over there when I first got fitted last year.  Very enlightening to me.  I did woods and irons in January and went back later to the location at TPC Avenel to get fit for wedges.  I had bought a set of i506's and took them back last month.  The fitting was awesome once again and they answered all of the questions I had.  I think they have great customer service and you get to hit on the range, which means you at least get to see your ball flight and get all of your numbers from the launch monitor.  After going I've realized how important it is to get fitted.  They'll even take a look at your current irons and go over your goals so you can get better fit.  Larry and Ken were great.  I know Lawrence (Putt4doh) has used them since he recommended them to me and I made the recommendation to a buddy of mine--he's extremely happy with his clubs.  Hope this helps and if you have any other questions shoot me a PM.

I went over there last year for a driver fitting, and Larry Bleich also checked my irons and other fairway woods as well.  He changed the lie on my irons and lengthened the shafts all while I waited.  They also had a ton of demo stuff that they let me try.  I'm a lefty and I have never seen so many LH demo options in one place before.  I think the whole visit cost me something like $115.  

That place is terrific.  I am going back for a putter fitting this spring.

I was just in there on Saturday for a fitting.

Essentially you pay $100 for an hour of fitting.  $50 for a half hour.  They have every type of club and manufacturer that you want.  If you have a Titleist preference they will fit you with Titleist.  They actually ask your club preference when you set-up the appointment.

If you purchase your clubs thru them then they will microfit the clubs when they come in as well as do minor adjustments up to two years from the time of purchase.

I worked with Larry and he was great.  The fitting process was very easy and he goes over everything very thoroughly and shares a ton of information with you.  I was looking at retooling my entire bag and finally decided to get fitted before plunking down any cash.  I am sure glad I did because the specs we came up with I would have never have guessed.

Being able to see your ball flight and hit the ball on the range is great.  You are not hitting into a net and then having a computer tell you how the ball flew.  This I think sets them apart from some of the other operations.

I would recommend booking an appointment now.  Larry indicated that the backlog come March could be almost a month and a half.

Hope it's the right one.

Probably a bit far from London to make it worth a visit for me...

What kind of high tech equipment do they use for fitting?

I'm considering making an appnt this weekend with these guys. Was wondering if anyone had any feedback on the fitters or the process. I understand they use trackman.

They're good...  I was fit for a driver and fairways a few years ago by Paris (I think he's at Golf Galaxy now).  The perks of actually seeing the ball flight and having it verified by Trackman are priceless.  As others have mentioned in the thread, it's interesting to see how different your actual fit is versus your preconceived notions.  I went into the fitting playing a 8.5 degree Ping I20 driver with X-flex, and he fit me into a 9 degree R1 with an 80 gram X-flex shaft.  I picked up about 10 yards and hit the ball much, much straighter.  He also verified that my three wood at the time was PERFECT and didn't try to sell me something just for the sake of it.  I should have gone back for irons, but I may do that later this year.  Definitely worth the appointment, especially since it's finally warm and dry here in the DMV.

good to hear. I sent a coworker to them (beginner) and they did exactly what I hoped they would do... fit him for clubs that he can grow into. He's 6'3" and was bent over swinging off the rack clubs. Somehow they were able to give him clubs that will allow him to perform a proper swing.

I've been playing for 25 years so my expectations are a little different... but I like what I hear about them.

getting fit for irons, hybirds and possibly fairway wood

I plan to go in asking to try srixon's and titleist and maybe Mizunos.
