Jealous on the 4-iron. ;)

My last pickup wasn´t today but yesterday. Another Anser driver, 9.5°. I love the 10.5°, just a little too high flight, tried different shafts, then bought the RomaRo, a Yam, tested the 913... Anser is still the best overall head for me, so I thought the 9.5° might solve my problems.

Hope it´s the "Ans(w)er".

Won't be a problem if I can stay home long enough.

2)Bought some used Aerotechs to try in the OnOff forged. Having them shipped to Goodsie

Want some Aerotechs as well, hope to find some in Europe on day. Shipping and taxes + customs on top would make it so much more expensive to buy from the US.

I picked up the dry cleaning and a nasty case of crabs.

Oh, golf related? Well not today, but I recently ordered a set of Mizuno Yoro Craft MP-64's with KBS Tour shafts. Double nickel satin, a little more radius on the sole, a sharper toe with a straighter top line, and a little less offset than standard. First new set of irons in over year.

Nothing to report over here, since I haven't touched my clubs in over... hell, don't even know when was the last time I hit some balls. It all has to do with the birth of my first daughter back in May. Priorities shift. MBBG, congrats. I'm sure you will love being a dad. Well, at least I do. And I still enjoy golf... on tv :P

PRGR r55 Chipper arrived put in a crazy bid in ebay i won it.
forgot about this as i ordred it months ago. broker delivered it today.
BTW this is for my wife not for me ::)

also picked up a box of the best contact cement,epoxy money can buy.
screw waiting 1 day to hit your clubs. this is the strongest fastest
acting epoxy available. like contact cement. i can hit clubs after 5 mins
although i prefer to wait 30 mins.

this is not for golf, actually contact cement for models etc etc.
this is a secret tip i learned from one of the best builders in japan.

RC 305v 5w z9003 (great shaft in a fw)
909's spb

And a MF zen with no headcover.

Do tell when you get a few sessions with it. I had one of these a few years ago (not the 611, the Craft) but just couldn't hit the shaft for some reason. Had it built flat, 56.5* I think. I liked that part, wish you could still do it with their fairway woods. But I'm curious to see how the shaft is, I'd bet the head will be great.

If the grip says RomaRo, they have their own line of grips.  Having never actually seen the the club I am glad it worked out. Hopefully you did not get burned on the import duties to badly.

Maxima V-type came today. 9.5, gonna put a Tour AD BB6-s in it cuz everything I read mentions a pretty high launch with this head. Will soon have my mother-of-all-shootouts with this, Yam V203 Tour, and S-Yard .388. ONE of these will be in the bag for the next good while. I'm really tired of all this dickin' around.

Was very tempted to put a BB in the Maxima too. Think that will be a great combo. My builder doesn't carry it so will be putting the Accra in it and putting the WBQ into the 388....

Just bought a used Craft 611 driver 9 deg from Yahoo Japan auction.
It'll be a couple of weeks until I get it...  but I am very excited.
Was going to try the H4 but the 611 looks so much better.   
Comes with a Diamana B 70 shaft too!!  Wanted to try this shaft as well!

After my trackman session last month, I put a Crazy Boron in my zr30 and it is now my No.2  driver only behind my P-Tune PG313.    Srixons from back then are really good.     Have fun with your shootout!

Got these recently: Mizuno MP-T10 52*07 58*10 and 64*07. I only had a 56* tm at the time, I saw these on ebay and just fancied trying a 64*. Really need to trust your swing and commit fully on a 50yd flop with this thing because if you quit on it it'll go 10yds. Lol.

Great head but hate the shape and its high even at 7.5*. Anser and i20 suits me much better as far as design and tech goes compared to G25.

More of a fine milling.  The thing that still strikes me is that you can see the grain of the metal a la the Yururi Flatbacks but in a chromed head...

this is the 3rd epon 202HT i have owned.
should never have sold my first one.

anyway from what i heard, no re-issue anytime soon
so pulled the trigger on another one. custom weighted to 215grams
square face.

probably the most underrated, unappreciated easy to use shallow
faced FW by a mile. superior to the Ryoma and EGG (yes ive owned both)
still undecided on a shaft. choices are DI7S, GT7S. YES only GD as theyr
proven

Not exactly new. I just reshafted my driver with a NS Pro Regio Formula 55s and my 3w with a Crazy LY02. Will report once I get to hit it. From the first "waggle test" with the driver, I can already feel that the butt section of the regio shaft seems much softer than the crazy. Feels like a wet noodle comparing to the Crazy. Not sure this is good. We'll see how it goes.

My OnOff Labospec 5W showed up finally.  Ordered it with the steal shaft and showed up with the labo graphite.  I'm
guessing because it took them awhile to ship?  Free upgrade?

Will be playing this tomorrow.  The look is amazing, without question the smallest FW I've laid eyes on.  I think you could
tell someone it's a hybrid and have a chance they'd believe you.

55* lie  .5" open.  Specs are a dream come true.

the yammies may make an appearance this weekend...getting kinda hard to choose an iron set these days, which makes me very happy.

m, was really bombing it w that non conforming geotech head.  the zcom is great in it and it will go in a guest bag...

the surprise prize and right into the starting bag is the George spirits with Fuji, very nice high launch and feels great.  was moving it around a bit...good stuff..

Damn I forgot all about the Geotech head. Never did hit it. Hate to fall in love with something I can only use for bogus rounds. Glad it's working for you though. Those señoritas see you hitting it that far they may come sniffing around.

They look 100% nicer in person than in the pictures.

Only have them for a little more than 1 day, first impressions are great. I will certainly do a review when I spent a little more time with them.

this is the 3rd epon 202HT i have owned.
should never have sold my first one.

anyway from what i heard, no re-issue anytime soon
so pulled the trigger on another one. custom weighted to 215grams
square face.

probably the most underrated, unappreciated easy to use shallow
faced FW by a mile. superior to the Ryoma and EGG (yes ive owned both)
still undecided on a shaft. choices are DI7S, GT7S. YES only GD as theyr
proven

I like your shaft choice. GD is all I've used for the last 2 or 3 years.

Where'd you pick up that Epon 202 HT? I've been thinking of one of those. Not crazy about any of my 3-woods. Yam, TS, RomaRo R, RC, but nothing looks and feels as good as those Epon FW's.

I will attest to that, in person I've never been more enamored with an iron, even the copper 302.  I really miss that set!

Just picked up some stuff from powder coating, turned out much better than I thought. They are for a buddy, just got the shafts finished matte black to match his iron heads. Not decided on the ferrules yet.
The putter was just an experiment, but turned out nice as well.

A dream came true;) I finally own an Epon driver. Let's see if it works. It is a stunning looking head. FIrst time for me going with a loft lower than 10°. But as my swing has changed I think I could use a slightly lower launch.

Epon, over rated, I'm off to the garden Island and I just picked up an Adams 15 XTD Hybrid. I haven't had much luck with anything below 19 but this thing is crazy long and nice mid flight. Not sure how much use the 3 wood will be after bagging this.

Just got a new driver head called Lutin Ti-ness  ( not sure how the name was invented..... )
Read a few good things on a Japanese blog post and decided to give it a try.

Head looks like this:

[attachimg=2][attachimg=1]

Paired it with a Basileus Z that I had sitting idle.
The sound at impact first seemed really tingy high pitch metallic sound on the range, 
but out on the course where the surroundings give a different acoustic effect, it really sounded good.  Very much like this sound!! >>   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZkw2B9cyuc     ( if you are using headphones,   turn up the volume!!  Just love this sound :)  ) 

Don't have performance numbers in comparison to P-Tune yet, but planning on another Trackman session sometime next week.

Sure Jan. Haven't decided on the shaft yet. I think I'll go with the ns pro regio formula. Having really good results with it in the crazy head. I love the feel of this shaft.

While it's not new, I did pick up my RomaRo 460 driver for the first time in a while. When I first got it, I wasn't swinging well and didn't get on with it. Took it out today and ...wow! Long, mid-height bombs no matter where I hit it on the face. The most forgiving driver I own, but still having good feel. 10* head with GD BB6-S shaft. No ballooning at all, piercing traj all day. I had no idea it was so long, straight, and forgiving. May kick my Yamaha Tour driver out for a while.....

they are magnificent, just had a range session with them, pure contact feels amazing...only problem is I don't have pure contact very frequently...that said, I don't regret the trade either, they are a great practice set.

I hope that kamui works out for u!  it's a beautiful head and super hot.  I think some of these nonconforming drivers just feel better...softer..,the ball almost feels like it sticks to the head longer and rockets off...the technica is so controllable and goodness is it long.  the feel is very special.,.

4 the kamui would recommend a shaft with a firmer butt and livelier tip...something that really resonates the inherent feel of the head...attas3 would be good or the 6x07...if you're a higher ball hitter try the diamana b series...

Just got delivered a Srixon 2-ute/driving iron to go with the 3 and 4 I rotate in and out. Couldn't hit the 3 and 4 very well at first but realized I could bend them (they're forged) 3 degrees flatter and ....voila!! These things are great. Nice soft feel and high easy launch with the stock NS Pro 980 shaft. Nice, wide cambered sole goes thru anything and they're also easy off the fairway. Haven't really found any hybrids I like, they all like to hook or have lie angles like 60* or something at 40 inches. Ridiculous. But these work great for me at 2-3* flat of standard and are easily bent.

c, this thread is so very dangerous!  hearing about all these gr8 gear acquisitions just fans the flames.  how sweet was dead solid perfect impact with those ryo nano's?  u need a nice set of forged cb's my friend, how bout you take my '11 yam tour CBs, u can hard step the monocos I have in them and u find me a set of '13 onoff cb heads?  to romaros are gone and I need something for the recoil pulls...yam/Monaco is to sweet to break up, I love them but I'm to torn up physically to hit them as much as I want to.

s, u make me sick with all the awesome stuff u get...

of course I got a couple small packages today or I wouldn't be posting here...practicing with the short putter these days....may have to get a zen.  also want to try the new roddio i10 shafts....hmmmm...and about 6 or 7 other things...

Half of my listings are lies, jut to fan your fire H…

But I also just ordered a set of 120X Tour Attas shafts as the engine for the Yururi PDGs I am going to order once I get paid on the 11th.  That combo will start the season next year for me…

Although I am considering going with the Fire Express DGL instead.

And as an aside, finally a set of irons that are approximating traditional lofts.  Might have to bend the Toyo back to 52* and track down a 56* wedge to balance the bag...

Montana is getting awfully close to winter conditions already.   Not quite the snow yet.... but temperatures dropping daily!

Trying out the Epon 460ZR Technity driver for the very first time.   Stock shaft was not my flex so I replaced it with an Ahina shaft sitting idle.
Need to see if all the talk about "softest feeling"  is actually true.   

Also picked up a couple of iron sets.    2013 Yammie V Forged which I think I will be letting go ...   just does not suit my eye.  A bit too much offset.

kamui kp101 irons. i think they are better than i expected them to be.
something small compact and very heavy punchy heads to rotate with my
503s. still waiting on my monacos to arrive so i can give them a proper whirl.

I picked up a set of Epon 302s 5-P with Fuji MCI 120S shafts in them in excellent condition for a seriously good price. Swing has been off the last few weeks and with the tendinitis issues I've been having I thought I'd pick up a more friendly set of irons.

kamui kp101 irons. i think they are better than i expected them to be.
something small compact and very heavy punchy heads to rotate with my
503s. still waiting on my monacos to arrive so i can give them a proper whirl.

ecco wingtip shoes, galvin green, RLX golf shirts and some custom made brass golf
belts with fancy skins. pics of those to follow.

good to see you're letting your inner ho out!  was getting worried about you, was about to suggest u and swing981 form a support group....lets see some pics of the Gavin and the wingtips!

Epon, over rated, I'm off to the garden Island and I just picked up an Adams 15 XTD Hybrid. I haven't had much luck with anything below 19 but this thing is crazy long and nice mid flight. Not sure how much use the 3 wood will be after bagging this.

does your sentiments extend to their irons as well?
Yeah, didn't like the 502s. Tried 302s, AF tours in demo 6 irons side by side with Miuras and liked the feel better in them. Most of the JDM hos I know think alike.

For some reason being slightly intimidated by the look at address inspires more confidence in me.  I concentrate more for the shot.  Similar to playing a tough track vs an easy track.  I will generally play better on a tougher track, even if my score is a little higher as I tend to focus more.  Whereas on the easy tracks I lose my concentration more easily probably because misses are not punished as much.  I'm a slacker at heart

These are the beauties that I am deciding between the Tour Attas or Fire Express Proto DGL shafts for…

Wasn't insulted, nor am I smart. Can't argue with the posh part though, me being a lesbian and all.

If you scroll down on the link you will see the definition of "pants" being like sh!*.  So either he thinks they are crap or they are the bomb diggity.

Thanks...

In this case I think I posted both golf gear and a watch. Was waiting in the drive through line at the bank after visiting the post office, so I had time to kill. Figured I would have a gander at my new iron heads.

Always wanted to try the Flatbacks but could never find a used set and wasn't to keen on the raw finish for where I live.

The PDG being not raw, but still black pushed me over the edge. The muscle and lines on these reminds me a little of the TS stuff so it will be an interesting comparison.

Yes and yes

If I put the Epons and Nitro under the shells and mixed them around it would be tough to tell them apart.

The thing I notice most at address is the hosel port appears smaller and not so built up coming off the head.

Looking forward to hearing what you think about them and most of all how they compare to the Monaco's.

After recently trying the Aerotechs, SP ora, blue, recoils and few other oldies.

The Monaco's are the best for me.

On a sales oriented site, we tend to only hear about items that are in the owners best interest to push.

I do agree the trpx is good. Nitro is the next step. You won't hear about it for (political) reasons (distributor) I
won't go in to.

Count me as one disappointed with other Jbeam/Crazy drivers. Hated the feel and launch, harsh and low. This think is much better, solid feel and hit it either mid/low or mid/high depending on my set up.

Now, now Scratch…  That kind of request is a step too far.  Banning someone for being an arrogant prick would mean most of us would have to get banned.  If jealousy is your issue, it isn't distance that makes a good golfer, its consistency.  Think of all those old fucks that Free comments about.  The ones that play to a +1 hitting 220 down the pipe every time.

JCH needs to be a home to all.  So my prescription for you; take some RhoudyLax, head to club and make it rain, then go back home for a few minutes of fury.  Repeat every other day for 2 wks or until it can no longer rain in the club...

That is good distance shaft, Dale. It is my gamer. Plays on the softer side but has an incredible kick through the ball. And you can feel that the kick does not come from the tip but rather from the butt-mid section. Love the feel. Not the most accurate shaft though. There are tighter shafts for sure.

My thought process there was the 425 head is low launching and low spinning head already,   
so I am trying their signature mid kick shaft first.    And I got a good deal on it too :) 
If it launches too high, I'll try something else.

I would say, especially off the tee most are looking for distance.  Much fewer look for placement and control.  The majority of golfers do not exceed 250 yds off the tee, so a getting there is much more preferred than caring if they can hit a draw or fade or even hit the target they aimed for within 20 yards left or right…  Market is bigger for distance drivers therefore they equal sales...

Title: Re: So what did you pick up today?
Post by: Miuramaniac on November 07, 2013, 04:43:21 PM
Not new, but I'd never hit my Royal Collection TX 4-wood I bought a while back. Finally took it out for a lash cuz I'm not hitting my 3-wood off the ground with any launch or worth a damn. And maybe I can replace my 3 and 5-woods with one. I only tee off on my course with a 3-wood once a round and sometimes it's even too far (RomaRo), leaving 50-60 yards when I'd rather have 80. And my 5-wood goes sky-hi, especially in Texas wind.

So this RC TX 4-wood is a lovely little club. Shafted with a Tour AD SF-7, very underrated/underappreciated shaft. The head just inspires supreme confidence in me for some reason, maybe cuz it's smaller than most FW's. And the feel is sublime, soft and solid. Traj is lower than the 5-wood and carries about 225-230. Perfect for what I need. And pretty easy to move left or right. RC FW's are some of the best around, ever IMO.

I tried the RC Prototype Fairway earlier this year,   this model is only sold thru custom orders only.
http://www.royalcollection.co.jp/lineup/rc_proto_fairwey.html     <- not my misspelling "fairwey"   :)

I had the 18deg head paired up with the FW80 I got from you and that was probably the best feeling fairway wood ever for me.
Unfortunately,  I had since gone back to a single 4 wood set up.    But boy that head felt so good like striking the ball with a solid piece of metal.
Smaller head that's plenty workable.   Highly recommended.

I've only had good experiences with Jauce, but that's probably down to no one else wanting the older gear!

How's the Miura driver?     Was always interested in the MD390  don't really care for the newer SIT though....

That is my 2nd 390. I really like it. My other has a P9003 in it.

The Epon paint is actually a wrap and needs to be removed and have it repainted. Just wanted to hit it a little before I do that.

it would still be unclej's.

Picked up a Geek Failsafe 3 head. ... again
It's quite an ugly looking head  but I have had at least 4 of these in the past 2 years
and sold them each time I got into a new JDM driver but I somehow keep wanting to try it again. 
The sound and feel are quite addicting.  Possibly close to being perfect.
Gonna pair it up with a Diamana Ahina this time.

If it works out well, it may replace the AF103/WBQ currently in the bag.    We'll see!

In the waning days of the free international shipping from Rakuten I finally broke down and got a couple of Kasco UTs.  22* Tornado 7 Type I and a 19* Type U along with a pair of QFE UT 85 in X.  Considering my love affair with the super-hyten face in the E340 driver am surprised it took so long.  Figure the 85 gram UT CPMs lower than the 100 S, I can always tip a tad if it seems to loose...

Just picked up 3 x Ion plated whiteboards in X for my fairways. Gorgeous looking things, and so far they're doing what I wanted which is lowering the ball-flight and achieving a more predictable ball-flight.



On their way to me I have a set of Quadra SAF 100i in stiff, 3i - AW, which I will either hard step once for a 2i - PW set or tip them half inch to play SX. I also have a Quadra Red Tour driver shaft in X on its way too  ;)

Just got an email that my 7 iron/Roddio i10 demo club of the PDG came in at D7 playing 37.5" and shipped along with the remainder of a herd of unicorns.  Will post pics once they arrive S/B early next week.

Combine that with the Kasco UTs, reshafted Kamui 3wd and Epon&Miura drivers I think my bag for next year is pretty much set.  Just need to finalize the GF putter and nail down the shafts for the irons and wedges...

zen was in the bag right after it arrived and won't leave...can't believe it. I've been putting decently with the little guy.  really enjoy the feel of a well struck putt.  the 901s are interesting.  very enjoyable to hit, easy to launch.  may put a lower launch graphite shaft in them like the diamana b and try and kick the egglets out once and for all...criemony...how pathetic my game...

Like the gray grip, was going to go lime green grips to match the logo on the older paint job.  New paint job is pretty good.  Also did away with the flex designation on the new ones.  X is straight in 3 shaft in 3 head, SX is one soft step 3 shaft in 4 head and S is a double soft step, 3 shaft in a 5 head…

All taper tip.

Interesting that the shaft weights are varied as well. Kinda like the Aerotech players spec.

Actually I got 2 #9s for the two Yururi Tour wedges that I got.  The #2 is just in case I want to soft step.  The shafts #1 shaft is for a UT, the #2 might be for a UT if no soft step is needed…

The fur color on mine are not limited, rather that is the natural color of the new model.  You can have custom colored fur on your unicorns if you want for an up charge but I did not feel it worthwhile...

Bought the "slightly used" set of Tourstage 709 CB's that looked like none of them have ever been hit for less than half-price. Probably gonna split-set them with my leftover 709 MC's I had after I split-set them with 909 MB's. They all have VERY similar profile but they get a hair bigger with a hair more offset going from MB-MC-CB.

Also picked up a TS 23* X-ute recently (love those things), and a couple TS wedges in 52 and 58 after Tsupo's review. Love my raw Miuras but getting tired of sanding them later if I don't dry them enough. Hate rust.

Oh, and a TRPX driver, the deep-faced one in 10*, with a Messenger shaft that drops bombs all over the place (actually right where I aim it ;)). And an SYard 3-wood. May get a 5-wood too, that damn 3-wood is money. That's all for now.

Bag oughta be perfect by the time the twins come Feb 12...after that, well, shit  :'(

SYB 13 with speeder VC 7.0, wow

I'm going to regret asking (only cause I don't know what a SYB is) but what's a  SYB?

SYB is like the special line/tour line of fourteen. Just like onoff have their labospec line.
pls correct me if i am wrong.
C,
Correct, I've heard component line of fourteen. The tour players are using these SYB 3 woods.

I think so too. Only reason I didn't snatch a set earlier is I wish they didn't have all those lines milled in the cavity. Take those out and it's one of the best-lookin CB's around IMO. Look great at address though. If it'd get above 35* I'll be able to give 'em a go and see how they feel.  :'(

I have a pair of those in the orange/brown combo.  They are super comfy for walking around in.  For on course play I have grown accustomed to the True Tours and feel the Ecco are too high off the ground.  If coming from a more traditional golf shoe you will love them...

I have the brown / orange one as well. They are really durable, played quite a lot this season with them and they are still great.
You could try the Ecco Zero as well, weights next to nothing and you are really close to the ground. Have them in black / lime.

Post by: 1dirtypanda on December 10, 2013, 10:13:42 PM
But a Stinger will look much better in a black head than a white one...

you are correct. in fact the first ever shaft i stuck into the zero negro was the stinger.
is a beautiful combo. i wonder if it would be easier to paint the shaft white?

What about speeder 757 in the zero blanco? That shaft is white. Although I have no idea how it performs yet.
 
I totally forgot they made this in white. If one sky marks it will it leave marks on it like the TM white heads did?

A bit late but I want in on the trade too!

they are the nike split cavity prototype straight out of tom stites nike tour department.
hard to find a number #2 better yet a brand new one.

they are the same as the onoff 247 heads miura forged at least. they look the same
just cosmetic differences and prob sole grind. going to shaft this with a graphite design
UT85 and make it a hybrid bent to 18*. tired of hooking my hybrids.

i will just put lead tape on the cavity to hide the swoosh!

Driver looks awesome though. I almost had a Crazy LaBomba white head put on a LaBomba shaft a couple years ago but they were out of the white heads at the time. That Epon looks awesome in white.

Lol I was wondering if anyone would pick that up.

It's somewhat more cream colored than the speeder shaft but I think it looks fine. Guys in my league are gonna think I went TM for my driver. Not that I care what they think. I wish I could golf you you guys.

Onoff forged 2011 or 2013? I have the 2011 ones and couldn't be happier. Easy to hit irons that don't look bulky. They are a bit on the bigger side as far as blade size is concerned. And they are so soft at impact which I love. Some think they are too soft but I like it.
Would be interested to know if the 2013 model is worth the upgrade.

2013. This is my second go around with them. Really really liked them but was playing well with the blades so I sold the Onoff. I like to do trial runs during the winter and early spring then settle on a set for the season.

This winter was looking for a couple sets of more friendly irons and can't think of anything thats come out that I like better than the Onoff.  I also feel that since my UST TourSPX build using Recoils was a little sketchy, I owe it to them to try again with a different shaft in them.

Santa arrives in UK early!!  ;D

Titleist Forged wedges 50* 56* 60*. Doubt I will have time to put my Quadra 100i shafts in them before crimbo. I'm also wondering, as my PW is 46*, whether to change the lofts to 51* and 57* and ditch the 60*. What do you guys think?

Title: Re: So what did you pick up today?
Post by: MBBG on December 20, 2013, 08:18:30 AM
I personally don't like a 4 wedge setup and prefer PW 52 58 or some small variation of that depending on loft of the PW

PRGR Egg +1 3ut, 19*, left Japan Thursday, delivered today, could be a record? And no customs.

Not sure about the shaft, feels a bit soft for a stiff. Has anyone played it?

Now have my driver, 3 wood, ut, irons ordered and wedges decided on, putter stays, 2014 bag complete.

Title: Re: So what did you pick up today?
Post by: MBBG on December 23, 2013, 10:20:31 AM
Those stock shafts in the PRGR stuff are sheer noodles.  The M-43 "stiff" shouldn't even be called a regular imo.  They do feel great and launch pretty decent though if you can slow down enough to properly use them.  I had the 4 and 3i+ both with stock shafts.  Wound up selling the 3, kept the 4 and put a Crazy Black UT in it, which was delightful.

Yes, M-43, not only soft but also very light although reading web site it's made that way by Diamana. Anyhow, plenty of shafts to experiment with. Does anyone know hosel size?
Title: Re: So what did you pick up today?
Post by: freehb on December 23, 2013, 10:48:24 PM
I wouldn't replace the stock m43...it is what it is...like more beer says, if you slow your swing down it launches real well, you get some very consistent distance...the egglets nursed me through a rough patch with my swing this year.  was able to get within 100 to 140 on the par 5s in 2 which is fine b/c I have a decent game in from there...still that's no way for a man to play golf.n I'm the 2013 member member champ for crying out loud!

egglets are for pussies! 

egglets banished in 2014! 

my 18&21 202s are headed to builder to get diamana b's

working on the '14 irons, steve, give me a call, need u to nurse me through this roddio build...I'm getting some crazy ideas and hearing contrasting comments...situation critical bro, I will hook u up in Tampa if u can get this deal perfect for me...

in any case, I was board and drinking and a couple weeks later...this box showed up from japan...

For me:

There's something about a GF Putter.  It simply oozes quality.  It is a true work of art not some
mass produced, everyone has one, average cheap ass putter.

From that comes pride and confidence.

Works for me.  :)

off my score, I wouldn't play it. If I could beat Tiger Woods and be the #1 player in the World, I wouldn't play it......

Picked up the new Gloire because I am curious about the new technology and it was half price on Yahoo.

After 2 rounds of Golf.... I'm going to keep it in the bag for another.  Well it is T-made JAPAN!!!  :)

Picked up the new Gloire because I am curious about the new technology and it was half price on Yahoo.

After 2 rounds of Golf.... I'm going to keep it in the bag for another.  Well it is T-made JAPAN!!!  :)

my thoughts too...

honestly this Gear works...

I have a two adapters on the way to try a couple of different shafts. As far as adjustments go it's loft only which I haven't
messed with.

I swore I'd never own an adjustable driver. I'm telling myself loft only doesn't count. As a side note, I've hit my buds sldr
enough times to know I really don't care for it.  For me it's highly overrated.

i cant use the SLDR Driver either..dont like the Feel or Balance..but there 3 wood is awsome,very much like the JBeam i had...infact slightly better feeling if im honest with the TM.

im on the look out for a GD shaft to fit into the Rescue and 3 wood.

ps the Face on that Driver looks  Stunning

I have tried the 2012 forged Vokeys (had a 50, 54 bent 55 and 60) - once I have given the new ones some range/golf time I'll report back. The snow and cold are here in my area so I have yet to hit the new ones.

I see, I want I Ho - no other reason to see how they perform for my game. I have the forged 56K so if I decide to play the 56K I may go with the 60R for the greenside shots. I had the R grind before in the older forged Vokeys and wanted to try to the new K grind. I had the cast Vokey K grind (56 12) this past year and I loved the way it performed out of the bunker for me, not so much on other touch shots around the green. The new forged K grind has a pre-relieved leading edge that the cast Vokey K grind did not have. The forged version also looks not as bulky as the cast version and sets up very nice to my eye.

Mission, it was 59 at the range today here in fla....supposed to be sunny and low 80s this w/e...come on down to fla fellas!

So when my wife told me she wanted to spend a month in Maine this summer w the boys (i actually shed a few tears of joy that were misinterpreted and it almost ruined the whole thing) I began planning my summer bag.  This happened 3 years ago and it was the best month of my married life!

I woke up early and walked out my door to play 4or5 holes most most mornings....came home right from work and walked or road 10 or more (many evenings getting a full 18 in in 2 hours...and I won't even describe the weekends....

In any case this freedom is a rare in a married w children mans life and it deserves a whole new setup.

The bag arrived yesterday.  I like it!  Super sturdy, light and handy....not many pockets though but am excited to go minimalist.

Got a 46*, 52*, and 58* Titlesit Cold Forged wedge. Don't know why, probably won't use them for a while, I just liked the idea of them. Took the plastic off the 58, looks great. Not too rounded or bulbous like so many of them nowadays. But I've been getting along with my Miura MB5000 WC's so well they'll gather dust for a while.

This plays at 44 3/4" tipped to play sx. Compared to a Kai'li 60x at 45" which gave a mid - ball flight in a Yamaha 4.6v 9 *,  the X was the same or maybe a little lower.  The best thing about it though is its stability. Slight left or right was as much as it deviated where as the Kai'li could go a lot further in either direction.  I think the distance was the same. This will obviously need some 18 holes under its belt before I can say it's the best shaft I've used.

Both had the same shaft, but shaft length was 44" in 435r and 44 3/4" in the Zero. Ballflights were similar if not the same, about mid-height. 435r was ever so slightly more consistant. When middled I actually preferred the feel of the 435r!
 Both have neither the feel, consistency, ballflight or distance as my Yamaha though, which is why they've both been sold/traded. YAMAHA RULES OK!!.........but it's probaly down to the Diamana X being brilliant :)

They didn't last long, great feel and surprisingly forgiving but lofts didn't jive with the rest of my bag(s). 4 iron is the same loft as my Onoff 5 iron, I added another hybrid to make them work.

Make sure you meet in a well lit wide open public place, that or bring extra security.  That invite seems a bit dodgy to me.

I can even imagine him showing up with his youngest in his arms, then as he approached asking you to hold the kid while he gave the clubs a waggle. As he put the last club in the bag just grabbing it and running, leaving you with a newly adopted child...

 im not 100% sure.
  it cracked  after a range session,   i dont remember doing it at the time  , i  just remember picking it  up one day when i had  the shaft pulled   and going huh????????
but i dont swign anywhere near 120. the baron has a very fast swing but no where near the power so im totally confused as well it cwertianlywasnt dropped or mishandled.   maybe not the toughest paint ?????

 i was totally miffed by its crack .

incredible looking   head tho  .....

Happy to provide feedback, but my comparison to GD or Diamana shafts will not be to your liking. 

The only GD shaft I have played that I liked is the P9003 as a driver shaft.  Had it in a 3wd but it did not perform too well.  I tried the AD EV series in some Yonex gear a number of years ago, but gave them one last chance in some ONOFF Type S and like them there.  But the AD EV sucked in FW and Driver for me.

On the Diamana front, I have only played the Diamana X and did not get along with it.  The 60S was too light and loose so I could not get the timing down.  The Stinger 70S I have, similarly did not work for me, that is now sitting in my discard pile waiting for the blowout clearance sale.

I have played one Roddio driver shaft, S60X in the Yam 203 and it is a top performer.  I would have some serious issues if I could only keep one driver out of my horde of biyotches...  Many different kinds with various "best" attributes.  There are voluptuous red heads to petite nordic type and aggressive Amazonian as well.  Each round can be an adventure....

They don't look cool but the super stroke grips are legit. Basically force you to take your hands out of the putting stroke. Haven't brought myself to put one on my GF but will see how she does the next few rounds. First and only 18 I've played since I got it was Saturday and it didn't go that well putting but was pleasantly surprised how well everything else did. Then again putting is my biggest problem and it was my first 18 holes in 1/3 of a year or more.

Nice pick ups gents...

I find it interesting that new UTs are equivalent of classically designed FW and some are longing for the TMAG SLDR Mini, effectively an oversized 2wd.  Just like in fashion, what is old is new again.  I really think that the shaft and balls are the primary places where new tech matters a lot...

Just received, never wanted one but the price was stupid low (Yahoo Japan). Put in a low low bid and turns out I was the only bidder.
Never been used and grip still in wrapper. miniscule ding but not noticeable. Think, I will use it for a while then back to Gold's for some bling.
Even had a head cover which was unexpected.

Couldn't say.  I wasn't playing golf back then.  Actually, couldn't believe anyone would play golf back then...

Mine still have the plastic on the head covers.  Also, were shipped without grips installed.  Not a big deal as it makes it easier of me to add the Balance Certified weights under the grip without having to chop them apart.  Gonna install the Game Golf tags on these as well, since the Elite grips have to large of an air vent in the top.  Hoping to get out tomorrow with them, but need the rain to stop.

Wow!!  They look huge!!! I know you're comparing them to some pretty small blades but.....

Mine will be here Friday. They are going to get a good shot at taking the Stensons out. The winner
is going to stay in the bag the rest of the year.  Trying not to be biased but I just don't think the 358's
are going to do it.

Hope my grips are installed. Did you request them to be left off?


100100 - That Gold's looks pretty much exactly like my 1st Gold's I picked up in 2006.  Doesn't
look the same now as it's been modified and refinished.  Could have saved myself a small fortune
not trying to knock it out of the bag as it's still in it.

Unclej, It's a Private Stock number 2. What modifications did you carry out, I was thinking of milled face and couple of weights. Nothing OTT.

Can't speak to The size or perf of the Stensons, but I don't mind the top-line thickness. At least in theory, having not hit these yet. My bigger concern is the sole width, but I do have more of a descending blow so the leading edge relief should be a good thing for me.  The rest of the head is compact, sole an top line is perhaps a little thicker than the SYard GT-S but not grotesquely so. Also the boxiness of the toe is attractive.

As to grips, not explicitly requested. However, Labo does not supply my particular brand pref of grip and T knowing that I add balance certified weights requested they be left off instead of making me cut holes and then rip off. Kudos on his part for thinking it through, just surprised me.

So I installed the ONOFF grips sans tape with the weights under. I can put the irons through their paces before deciding to put other grips on and can salvage the ONOFF ones easily.

In spite of everyone's comments to the contrary, I am still excited to play these.

Pretty much exactly what I did.  Had the face done and the weights put in the bottom of the sole. Will snap off a

Have to admit that I'm excited to play them as well, unfortunately as some of you may remember....

I've complained about LA Customs before and for good reason.  Here we go again.  Had these followed
through as they were supposed to I would have had them Friday.  I am fortunate that they will be here
Monday.  I was actually able to get hold of someone today that went out of their way to walk them through
and get them on the way out of customs.  To show how screwed up they are.... another box shipped from
Japan one day behind the ONOFF's.  It blazed through customs and I received it today (Friday).

Nervous apprehension as I didn't care for the ONOFF 2011 or 2013 model.  Actually didn't like them at all.

Hang in there Pete.....  These are going to have to be awfully good.....

So today during my weekly Monday walking 18 (I walk the front 9 on my feet and the back nine on my hands, it's an eastern zen thing) these Asian gents, a threesome, were ahead of me and kept leaving clubs on the green and having to come back for them. Noticing the pattern I just started looking for their clubs as I came to each green so I could have them ready for them once they inevitably circled back--sheepishly--to get them.

I couldn't help but notice that they were using some kind of super shovel looking clubs that bore a strange resemblance to knockoff Top Flight XL irons. I also noticed how completely unimpressed they were with my gleaming $8000 worth of high end JDM clubs.

Anyways, I forgot what the point of my story was, but I wasn't happy that they weren't blown away by my gear.

Oh, and I picked up a new golf glove.

Yeah after the first time it happened I'm not taking any chances.  Scary shit bro.  Sucked my stewardess/fluffer clean out of the cabin.  Luckily my clubs were unscathed--didn't even lose a head cover...Replacement Ryoma head covers a b!tch to find, new stewardesses are a dime a dozen.

As I've mentioned before I did not get along with the '11 or '13 forged models.  To/for me the 358's are
a huge improvement in every way. Certainly more compact with less offset.

The Legacy Blacks with the Monaco shafts for me are an outstanding combo and been in the bag now for
about 5+ months.  Round 3 is today with the 358's. I have the Roddio I-10's in them so there has been some
need to get (adjust a bit) used to them.

So far, so good.  If we play well today with them they will stay in the bag.  Been wanting to go graphite and
I think this combo is going to do it.

My extra TS358 arrived today.  SX Tataki 70 shaft.  Gonna do my own comparison to the Roddio S7 tipped to SX...  Anyone want to call dibs?

Have  recently benched the 3 wood.... this is the only one I would even consider giving a shot as the 5 wood is my
fav FW ever and part of the reason I'm not carrying a 3FW.   Shaft would never work for me... on either.....  hhhmmmmmm.

Thought I'd throw in comparo pics of the ONOFF 358 and Stenson Legacy Black. Doesn't look quite so big as the pics next to
the butter knives Rhody posted.

Excellent Pictures..
Again if the Sus weren't as good...

Roddio 2010 Shingo Spec, was intrigued by Stew's recent post and by chance this one came up on my favorite auction site for a silly price.

Now do I re-shaft my AF-153 or put it in the Geotech? Thoughts please.

Oooo I like the look of that Roddio. As your Epon is already shafted, put the Roddio in the Geotech and have a driver shoot out!

Is the Geotech FA closed or square Ray?

Post by: 100100 on May 21, 2014, 05:14:48 AM
Looks pretty square to me but Geotech site says 0.5, not sure if open or closed though?

My initial thought was to put the speeder in the Geotech and  the Shingo in the Epon as it seemed the right thing to do. Not sure now?

Whichever has the higher torque put in the Geotech. Having hit the RF700 @Spec which I thought was quite harsh feel, the higher torque shaft should soften the blow somewhat.......

I was expecting exactly the same (but I had a new toy and had to try it). It was interesting that the weight difference was not really that noticeable and the 'wiggle' test did show a looser tip, but nothing worse than a stock TM shaft in stiff (although that may be harsh on the 50R  ;))

For some stupid reason, I bought some of the Vokey JDM cold forged wedges and have never played them either. Couple sessions at the short game area for the 58, but the other 2 still have plastic on them. What a dolt.

Wife bought me that set on TSG of those MG MB-5005's for birthday. Haven't gotten them but should be interesting to try them out. One of the best-looking PW's I've seen in a while and I use that a ton from 11-130 on my course so it's really important for it to not look like a shovel.

Oh man I enquired about them but I was asleep when the reply came back.
Please write a review when you get the time,  as I think these are gorgeous.

Found a monoco wedge shaft and put it in a pro preference head...this may find its way back to C for a lifetime ho achievement award...

I've been looking for a pro preference head buddy. hope thats in 60*! EVEN HAS THE SHAFT I LIKE.

@A, that is normal picture orientation for harry. when its straight then something must be wrong or he is sober. :)

picked up a ryoma M3 mallet putter. should have it in a week or two

I'll ship it over to u c, it's so sweet (& my last one) but I just don't see it getting much time...I'm loving the 213s w i10 so much, I think they're going to be like the 3ht for me "unkickoutable".

Lmk how the ryoma putter goes, I call dibs, tired of looking at that huge freaking kombi..,

I still have the 52-56-60- pro preference wedges.... never played them.....

For some stupid reason, I bought some of the Vokey JDM cold forged wedges and have never played them either. Couple sessions at the short game area for the 58, but the other 2 still have plastic on them. What a dolt.

How is the new cold forged and any word yet on who made them for titty.  I got a 2012 forged 46 as it is Endo forged but truth be told, while it works and looks all business, it's not epon endo soft.

Where'd you get the ferrule?!

You gotta find an epon distributor who has a stash and will sell some...they are hard to come by, if you find any let me know, especially the brown ones...I'm embarrassed to admit what I would pay for those....for the life of me I can't understand why epon stopped making them...they are fantastic!

Like these? :-)

The brown ones are really really tough to come by now and I saved these from a while back just in case I have some raw wedges next time.

Also.....I ain't a distributor.

Post by: wmclarenf1 on June 04, 2014, 01:12:22 AM
Does anybody knows which gp driver head is conforming?

Of the GP-X series, GP-X1 is non conform from what I read.  Original GP is conforming.  All the new non-Gold GPs I think are conforming.  It's really tough to tell as there are so so many different driver head models and their website really does not do much in terms of information.

From what I gather translated from a few golf blogs, the original GP is longer than the GP-X series but that is out of production (so is the GP-X actually).  You can find used ones but many of the sellers don;t state the loft which is also not indicated on the head.  I'm keeping my eye out for the original GP.

Loving the Roddio iron shafts so much I picked up a couple fw shafts (good deal on yaj/jauce) for testing.  They're going in my 202s...anyone have advice on how to install these?  They're 2 tone (bottom is silver which makes me think orientation is important)....going back to an all epon bag (except for the putter which I don't feel the need to change until 1/1/16).

I'm going the opposite way of sqirt's...short, weak and sober....yes, it's been 5 days w no rhoudylax or saucey sauce...want to get some clarity prior to bachelor month.

It is, I got it in no small part to some of your and others posted feedback.  New set up will be 3ht w the w6-BA, 202 18, 21 5wba...May look for a driver shaft....I need another set of the i10s.  That's just such a good shaft for utes and irons...nobody wants my 551s so I might as well get me shafted up and enjoy.  They are mashers.

First time I am trying the Toyoshima.  The Protos however, for me, near indisposable and trying to scour around for a replacement especially for the 58 as sole wear is getting very evident.... hence this Toyo.  I love the Crazy wedges.  Over priced... yeah and we are sucker for it LOL.

It's not so simple... To refinish, you have to take off the original plating, then re-run the grooves and then replate. You may also have weight loss.  Far from any guarantee that it'll play and feel the same or even close from my experience.

As best as I can no.  I try to manage SW first with grip weight.  I have a stock of 43 gram Iomic sticky light for this purpose. I also typically don't play heavy SW clubs.

Very unlikely you have to re-do the grooves.  The wear in the grooves is most likely in the finish (this is confirmed by a top-notch refinisher in US).  If you get a good refinisher, you should have no issues.  And for the difference in price between refinishing vs new, there's very little risk in giving it a shot.  Your time and money, though; just trying to help.

actually its a 64k. your going to have to delfoft it more for your type of player profile
and herculaean swing speed. 66* will give you the ideal launch angle and soft landing
you require, just make sure the shaft you put in is mid launch as any lower kick shaft
will cause problems with the FAA

You're probably right. I will have Kwoky bend it for me to 66. I can use the extra bounce since I'm a digger type.

just play it in the range as is for say a week or so depends on how often you go to range.
I'm sure the constant pounding and contact with the ground
will naturally deloft the club. with your SS i say a 1 degree for every two range sessions.

If I don't get on with this V440 then I'll probaly try the non-tour V201. I need something to put the Stinger in anyway so its a good excuse to buy 1!!  :D

U and your Yamaha...I may be done with yam (@ least the new stuff)..some basillious flama buffooneous flamer) shafts arrived and are going with some drivers and Utes and fwys for a good old fashioned shuffling!  Everything is getting mixed around...worlds are colliding, steve just had a flash back and jay is still crying over the World Cup....squirts stands silently to the side muttering about some fraternity in Florida that wants him as their lead pledge master....Matt is chuckling to himself and then sighing because he knows there's no chance in hell mrs. More beer is letting him unleashed and unsupervised for the inaugural "pimps up, ho's down" golf tourney and showcase.....

Got my Stensons back shafted with aldila rip tour graphite shafts yesterday. I had these same shafts put in my wedges and 712U. Beautiful build, hit a small bucket on the range and then put them in bag for league round last night. Shot 38 with a couple real bad bounces that kinda messed up what was a really solid round of golf (for me).  Will get some pics and a review up soon.

Can't wait for the review on those Aldilas. How is the 712u playing for you? Can you compare it to other DI's you've played Matt?
Title: Re: So what did you pick up today?
Post by: MBBG on July 25, 2014, 02:45:20 PM
I love the 712U. Joked the other day it's become my favorite club. I have only ever had the epon driving iron. I think the epon felt a little better on a perfect strike but the 712U is easier off the deck I think. I haven't hit the new epon which is more similar to the 712U design. I'm actually thinking of picking up either a 712U 2 iron or the new TM UDI just two mess around with. I really just don't get along well with hybrids it seems, outside of the ibrids. And a 5w isn't something I would use much. We will see. Anyways here are some pics of the Stensons. Will do a full review once I've gotten some more time with them but so far I'm pleased.

They look nice, especially with those shafts.  I'll also look forward to your thoughts on the shafts.

I know you found the Yonex Zero difficult to hit.  I found the 712U more so.  In both cases, maybe it was the shafts.

Yeah I think shaft selection for these low lofted irons is absolutely critical maybe even more so than in any other club. I only hit the Zero a handful of times and it had a Program 130 in it. I think a lighter softer tipped shaft will suit most people best in these. My 712U had a kbs tour in it and it was easy to hit but launch was a little higher than I wanted especially off the tee. I hit it off the tee on a short par 4 dogleg yesterday with the rip tour in it and once off the deck from about 195 into a light wind and didn't have any problems and ball flight was better than the kbs for me. I still don't think its a club I am gonna pull on an uneven lie or rough though.

Post by: wmclarenf1 on July 25, 2014, 07:53:27 PM
Very nice setup Matt.  You should have tracked down the carbon fibre Epon like ferrules.. would have gone great with that shaft and choice of grip.

I hit a friend's LB with GS 95s in stiff.  Very very nice.  Even nicer than Epon 301s with Modus 120 Regulars which I tried at the same time.

Play well.

Hey I gravitated towards usdm woods for adjustability and easy shaft changes for my evolving swing but I've been gaming JDM irons all along and have several thousands worth of JDM gear sitting around and in the bag. Oh and my SLDR 430 is the Japan version.

Not sure if I should post this here or not, as I really didn't just get any of it.

Since the market is slow and I was not ready to sell the TS 909 heads, built up the PW and 4 iron using the Mamiya Tour Attas 120x soft stepped 2x.  Played them today to get a feel and see if the PW was too loose or the 4 iron was too stiff.  Neither was the case and damn was it an interesting day on the course with those 2 clubs.  Played them many times I shouldn't have but since it was a wide open course hit the 4 iron off the tee and then went to the 140-150 yard range and played a couple with the PW

PW was flying 150 and I got several 240yds shots out of the 4 iron.  Weather undoubtedly played a factor but damn.  Impressed me enough to build the rest of the set up.  Will be gaming tomorrow if the tourney doesn't kick us out. 

Squirts, I am coming for your distance crown.  Even started counting by stomping my feet, just to feel like you...

Got a new OBAN Kiyoshi Tour Limited 60 installed in my RomaRo 435LX...

First impressions after a range session (incl. Trackman) and 18 holes on my home course in comparison to my old OBAN Tour Prototype:
Very smooth feeling shaft. Very easy to load for me.
It does launch a little higher and produces a lower spin (for me -400 rpm in average).
Overall still very much on the low launch side of things.

Carry = as long as the Tour Proto
Roll = a lot more than my Tour Proto
Overall length: +5 -10 m on dry ground. On wet ground I think it is about the same

Very nice shaft I have to say. Pretty design and I love the feeling it produces with the RomaRo head.

I have never played the 460, but the 435 does feel almost as soft as my old EPON AF-101.
Control wise I have some issues on the off days. But when the game is on together with the new shaft this is a bomber ;)

C, can't wait for pics and reviews on the p2's, calling dibs when u move on...nice pick ups btw.

Dirty p, what u trying to impress squirts?  That is a meaty stick 4 sure!

I have a Roddio M6 and a couple more W6BA otw.

Done experimenting w fwy heads and shafts.  The 202 w6ba is my grail combo there...fellas, u can get those w6ba's cheap on yaj...it is the best feeling/performing combo for me ever...roddio really knows what they're doing...done w Attas, done w Fuji, done w Mitsubishi....roddio all the way, just superior IMO....

Their shaft selection sucks so I went with C Taper Lites in S flex which I plan on pulling, selling and replacing with Aerotechs or MCI possibly. I know it's not JDM but at least it's Japanese and forged. They really caught my eye and attention with the technology in them. I've always had a soft spot for Mizuno

For what its worth, I tried some Aerotechs and I think they are not as smooth feeling as the MCIs.  IF your elbow issue is persisting, you may find MCI better feeling.  You have to be careful with MCIs though as flex wise they they are interesting.  I've tried MCI 80R and they  feel stiffer and more board than MCI 70S.  So for you going for MCI 90 or 100 I suspect, the stiffness of the R or S may take you by surprise.

Heel shafted Low Tide copper Whale Tail.  Looking forward to getting it on the course.

Like Art, I know quickly whether or not a new acquisition is going to stick around.  After a few balls on the practice green, I knew this one wouldn't.  It rolls great, looks dymamite, and has a copper-only feel, but I am just too in love with the appearance and concentrated weight of the KM-350.  Recently, I had been thinking that I was done with putters, that I had found my holy grail in the Miura.  Still, though, I'm drawn to doing a custom, and Low Tide was a pretty reasonable way to give it a first attempt.  Loving the shape of the Whale Tail, I figured I'd give it a go. 

Now, I'm convinced that I really like smaller heads.  I do, though, still find myself tempted to try a custom mini.  But I'll be really disappointed if I spend serious coin only to find out that it's the KM-350's shape (almost a blend of blade, mallet, and Anser) that appeals to me as much as its size and weight characteristics.  Unfortunately, minis are not available at fitters near me (I have a Machine fitter around the corner) because they are such a specialty item (and commensurately insanely more expensive). 

I'm the type that figures out exactly what he likes and loads up (especially if I can have variations that don't change the principle design).  I don't like losing my shirt on failed experiments, though.  Having said that, if anybody wants a beautiful and terrific putter for cheap, knock on my door...

I'm surprise from a Miura 350 shape, you went with a Whale tail design?? I would have thought the rib curl or Low fin would be more a semi mallet/ blade/ anser style would be more up your ally?

Looks alone, the whale tail is outrageously beautiful so I can understand also why you went with that!!

Yeah, it was pretty much this.  Plus, I was interested in testing the opposite end of the spectrum since I haven't used a high MOI design in a ver long time.  Between the Rip Curl and Fin, my eye prefers the Fin.

Put hickory in a KM-350 and put a mid-size Grip Master on it.  Had to take the insert down from .370 (belt sander) and put a ferrule upside down.  It required sanding of the shaft, and I finished it with low gloss Tung Oil.  In all, a fun little (and easy) project.

How does it play?  The shaft is a lot heavier and its weight distributed.  Overall, it produces a very controllable feel...I likey!

I played this today (posted from the course) and really liked the stability.  I was very good (for me) inside 25 feet.  I was almost automatic inside 12 feet (not usually the case for me).  I'm sure that will change, but...  The course was empty, so I was able to play/drop several balls, and this was just a pleasure.  The greens were quite slow, however, so I'm keen to get it on a much faster dance floor. 

As of now, though, I may have to consider getting these into what Xenon is making for me. 

FYI, these are about 125 gms vs 90 gms of a typical putter shaft.

It's a great head for sure. I havnt looked at another driver since I got them earlier this spring.
It's one of the straightest, longest consistent heads I've ever played.

Not quite JDM, but my JDM got it for me...

338 yds, long drive at a charity event.  Used the SYard XV with CBT 75 SX...  Not much to squirts, but for me was a good crack.

Woohoo!  338!  That's a bomb!  Congrats!
Steve went into beast mode on that one, just had to have that tie!
Pro-level bomb right there!

I don't know what it was, but I have now won the comp 3 years running, each year with a drive of 320+ and with a different driver.  I have used the Yam/Roddio, Zero/Boron and XV/CBT

338... sweeet. Congrats. Hows that s-Yard XV driver. Always heard it is "ok", but nothing special.

The XV is a very good head, it does not stand out for anything in particular.  Especially when you look at the messaging of Ryoma for distance and forgiveness or jBeam for raw distance, Epon for feel and forgiveness etc, etc, etc...  I will say that it is a damn good everyday performer with pretty good workability and flight control, not to mention it can drop a few bombs. 

It isn't my favorite driver, but it was the one I had been playing for the week leading up to the event so it made the cut.  Kinda like the minivan of drivers.  Completely utilitarian but well suited to its function...

Just got the 302s back with purvy's roddios...hit a few balls today...no question roddio i10 noticeably better feeling and performing than the Aerotech 95s...these will go back in the bag as soon as I get a wedge set to match...

The head is pressurized with air thereby reducing the thickness of the face. Result is a greater smash factor and longer distances. I had one in the bag early in the summer. A great feeling head for sure.

Pics when I have them on Tuesday. I bought these for a project. Over the next month or so (depending on if I get on with them or not) I want to have the heads refinished in.......i don't know as yet. There's a company here in the UK that does some nice looking work on irons and wedges, so they'll get the gig. I will do a poll on the different finishes soon, just to see what you guys think. At the moment they're shafted with Rifle 6.0, but they will have S400 or X100 Tour Issue......but I might put some Black Gold X-stiff depending on the head finish. Lol.

Picked this up a few weeks ago but only shaft and test it for the past 2 games.  While it says 5 w but really a 7w loft.  Head is light at 209g so not sure whether it is ladies or men club.  In any case, had to use 2 layers of tape to make C9/D0 sw.  I mate it with a GD SF5 fw shaft and it is just great and a worthy replacement for the Ryoma F7.  While it is not as long but definitely more accurate.

No idea the cc but not a large head by any means. Mid height but very solid feel. I would say better than some of the RC that I hit.  Yes Art, for the price, don't mind even if it's no name.

Picked up a newly built set of Epon 703 5-pw with MCI60 R today.  Spent 30 minutes at the range before heading out for a game.  Haven't quite dial in with distance and whatever.  The feel of the 703 head is a bit less solid than my 551 with Roddio I-6 but very forgiving.  The MCI shafts true to its name, feel a cross between graphite and light steel.  Regardless whether it is longer or not, the MCI is very tight in dispersion.  While the Roddio feels a bit more lively, I am also happy with the MCI.

Finally picked up an S-Yard T.388 9.5* head shafted with a Roddio Tricross M:5. Always liked the idea of a small headed driver. Just never dared to try one until now.

Also picked up a Titleist VG3 9* head shafted with a Roddio Pentacross M:6. While I picked this one up mainly because of the shaft, I have to say that I am enjoying the shape at address. If my memory serves me well, I think this is made at Endo as well.

This whole talk of Roddio shafts this lately made me want to try some again. Especially after having owned a W6-BA that I really liked. This is what happens then. Thanks guys :-\

Well the la bomba sigma was picked up in a trade. the crazy ute was already attached to the club so decided to give it a shot.
i was quite surprised feel is not where i like it to be but most shots were straight , i never liked the 902 as well but it works with this shaft.

Okay, this is not what I pick up but thought you might find it interesting.  Someone at my club owns one of this but can you imagine take it out of your car and put back one every round.  My club has storage for power caddies for members but not this size.

Alright Jdmers, my impressions from the first round after putting them in play. The 2015 Onoff irons are the real deal, I was really impress with their performance and forgiveness. I have owned the 11 and 13 Onoff irons and have to say they don't even compare to the 15's. The 11's and 13's were easy to launch with a high ball flight and offset was reduced less by each year, taking queues from the 11's and 13's, they enhanced the 15's with ease of launch with a penetrating ball flight, they made the 15's more compact and Definitely reduced the offset, this is the best looking Onoff irons todate.

Performance wise: the 15's have a penetrating ball that keeps on climbing and climbing and drops like a dime with pin point accuracy, the 15's are point and shoot irons, they definitely reminded me of the 13 Yamaha tour model irons with how accurate they are. I won't talk about forgiveness because Onoff irons have always been known to be forgiving irons.

Overall improvement for The 15's is pin point accuracy, penetrating ball flight and easily a half to full club longer then previous models.

The 15's are the real deal and I wouldn't be surprise if they were # 1 voted irons here on this site.

Wow, obviously these are something special!!!

What shafts?

The only thing that surprises me is the offset is noticeably less.  Pictures look like there is still quite a bit. 
Very good to know.

I, like you, have had all the OnOff's since '11 including the 358's.  No good for me. Looks like we're going to have to
pick a set up and give them a go.

Amazing to me how everyone talks about how expensive JDM is... and it is... but not always. Set of new TM's retail

Jeff,

I too didn't get along with the 11's and 13's,  the 15's are definitely special, I would even say they perform better then the stenson Callaway irons.   

I have the 15 onoff's shafted with the Modus 3 system 125, so far I can't say anything negative about them. :)


I agree, everyone complains how expensive Jdm clubs are but the U.S. Clubs are up there as well.  titleist Ap2's go up in price every new model they release and price is comparable with Jdm irons in the market.

wrong! was a horrible combo! i had two guys that were 105-108mph very good players that had difficulty launching
head with normal swing. sure out of the boots swing will work but who wants to swing like that on every hole. i am pulling

I don't have any pic but got the new NSPRO Zelos ut for my 21* I-Brid as an experiment.  I wasn't hitting the i-brid well.  Its not that no good contact but keep hooking with the stock graphite SR shaft.  The finished length of the light steel shaft is only 1/4" shorter at the same SW.  The shaft launches easily and after some adjustment with timing, I am now more confident in hitting the club instead of aiming all the way to the right waiting for the ball to hook back. The new combo is now a draw rather than a bad hook.  Its not that expensive an experiment although found out that I can get it for about $30 a shaft from Raku vs $55 you know where.  Would try for a few more games with it before deciding to shaft the 24* also.

While it is not my acquisition, I did have a chance to play a fellow forum member's new Epon 503 shafted with quadra 652 graphite shaft.  Without saying, Epon head feels great as usual but the quadra felt as good if not better than the roddio I-6 on my 551.  Even the  shafts looks almost identical with its weave pattern.  The feel was very stable and nice kick. Now the shaft is definitely on my list for my next set of irons.

J15 or the J40 woods?  The J40 were very highly rated.  I believe the 430 CC version was like the number one driver by my golf spy of 2011 or 12 or something in their testing.  The DPC are a little longer heel to toe but offer a lot of forgiveness relative to their size and feel nice. Although I've not hit them with Project X.  At least they're 5.5 and not 6.0 or stiffer.  I see a lot of people raving about their turf interaction as well, I liked them myself, although I have only hit the demo 6i at the local shop and don't even remember what shaft was in it anymore.

That's what I thought about the Srixons...Quality stock shaft and forged cup face adjustable woods for dirt cheap compared to true JDM boutique stuff.  Excellent feel and sound and performance. Went ahead and upgraded the shafts just cuz that's what I do, but even so not a large investment for some really good stuff.  Driver was $750 I believe on The Sales Gauntlet til they released them over here then price dropped to like $465.  Lol.  I think that includes a Miyazaki shaft though.

True, squirts will likely cave in the driver and snap their strongest shafts but I so want to see a witb from him!

2014-2015 3rd Gen Diamana R 60s Japan graphics and a Diamana B 70s for my RR Type R 3wd.
Was on a LM and I could use a tad more spin and launch so giving the Dia R a shot.

How is the r?  Similar to the illima?
Title: Re: So what did you pick up today?
Post by: Scratch2Plus on November 07, 2014, 07:03:09 AM
^^^^ Similar launch as the Ilima but a tad less spin and tighter dispersion. I'm sure a robot can back that claim but a hack like me really won't be able to tell, know what I mean H?
The real reason I got the R in JP graphics is because it looks cooler :)

I know what you mean but the human senses know what they like and sometimes it's launch and spin and other times it's cool graphics...

That looks nice, may have to give it a whirl, how's the flex profile?  Similar to illima?

Why?

Because I like to try new golf clubs in the hope that they will magically fix my fundamentally flawed golf game.









HA!  That's what most of you all do!  I do it because it's really easy to skim a few grand out of my not-for-profit that helps kids when I start to feel the itch.

Picked up two new Miyazaki JDL shafts on a sale, a 5R for myself and a 6S for fellow member.  Shafted the 5R to my Epon EMS and game for the first time yesterday.  This is the first time I use a Miyazaki and I must say, this is one fine shaft.  I like it as much if not more than some of my Crazies at a 1/3 of the price.  Just for info, the club spec is 45.5" playing length and CPM for the 5 R is 232.

I'm totally sold on the Roddio iron shafts.  The Roddio driver shafts I've tried in the past were very smooth but not fantastic performance wise.  I think (hope) that I was playing too soft on the R flex.  This s6 I got is a sr so not much stiffer but hopefully it suits me better.

Curious what you think about the offset when you get them.

It's been said they have less offset than previous forged versions including the 358's.

They seem the same to me.  I've sold off the 358, 11 and 13 versions so I don't have them here to compare
but they (kuros) certainly have some offset.

I see your point if the Kuro is being marketed for outside Japan exclusively but small offset its a non issue for the home or Asian market.

One thing I found funny when I reading the review of the Kuros on the other site:

"Many ...'ers have owned multiple iterations of the ONOFF Forged Irons starting back in 2011,  it was previously known as a mid sized iron but what it's become in 2015 is what I want to consider Semi-Mid sized as ONOFF has narrowed the sole,  reduced the offset,  shrunk the head size down,  and and even added a very nice leading edge grind across the entire set."

I own the 2011 onoff forged and the have the exact same leading edge grind. So, it is not a new feature.

I'll let you know. I have also had all the other sets and still have the 13s so I can compare to them. I'm playing the PRGR Nabla tours now and to me they have a very slight offset which I like. I hope the Kuros are very similar in size and off set to the Nablas.

S6 is a great shaft. Have one in my Yam v203 and another in the Labo 3wd...

Think they are true to flex but made for more fluid tempo based swings than aggressive ones.

To the best of my knowledge M is for longer lengths >=45" while the S is designed for sub 45" uses.

I do not know what that implies for using an M vs an S in a FW or UT.

Title: Re: So what did you pick up today?
Post by: lousifers on November 28, 2014, 05:17:04 AM
The LFD is great as expected. I got the same distance as from my longest driver Ryoma ST + Touale shaft. Considering my LFD is shafted with stock Bassara P, this is a great driver. You know what maybe due to that Ryoma ST is 0.5* closed, I hit LFD straight while pull some shots when hitting the ST

Don't know why but somehow I got head speed about 1-2 MPH slower from LFD but the balls go about the same distance. Wonder if I put my favorite shafts in the LFD, will I gain a bit more distance? Not sure about this as we shouldn't fix the things that not broke. Anyway, I got Diammana B-50 and Roddio M5 unshafted and think they're lonely without matching head.

Below photo taken to compare the size and dept of some heads

on the left, top-down: Ryoma ST -> LFD
on the right, top-down: Ryoma 10.5*, 504DH, Ryoma 11.5*

Hard to say as my swing is not that consistent, but I'd say about 5-15 yards.

One more thing, I found I was better with 11.5* Ryoma than 10.5* one. Curious if I go to fit at Endo Golf Lab, I'll get the driver with any more yards? With my HS, I'd say I'm willing to spend for another 10 more yards

Ok just come out the Forging House and having spoke to Master Yoda San we collaborated and made this sexy Fecker
Dale - aka San Grim up North has made this one off master piece. Only available at Tour Spec Dale (TSD) for the cheap as chips price of £1,000,000.

Only available to TSD members that will do anything and everything Dale asks. That or someone else stupid enough to pay the redonkulous price.

No prob, C

Uniflex of each brand and model depends solely on them how stiff they'll make? So I got to shaft it and measure CPM along with hitting it to know? Hmm, will try next week as I'll go to HK tomorrow

You wouldn't have long to wait for the dibs, believe me.  Is it the Ryoma or Romaro?  Either one, C, you would be in the other 50% that would be topping the sucker.

After years of pushing the cheapest push trolley I could find on the bay (won't even post pictures as it is too embarrassing), I finally pulled the trigger on a new Clicgear 8.0. This is my early x-mas present and I gotta say it is quite cool. I chose the 4 wheeler over the standard Clicgear because from the videos I thought the folding and unfolding had too many steps on the 3 wheeler. The 8.0 is super easy to fold and unfold.

That looks cool shacco. Colour coordinated too. Very nice. I have the sun mountain quattro. Very stable with having the 4 wheels but not as easy to steer compared to the 3 wheelers.
Title: Re: So what did you pick up today?

Both are great, I'm still using my 3 wheel clicgear...albeit sporadically...golf should be a walk but I'm to out of shape to carry...the sun mountain will roll for a longer distance but the clic gear is very stable and portable...

Wish more courses were walking only...like in Europe..my course requires a cart unless you're a member and it's after 1pm only on weekends...

how these chuckleheads take 5 hours to get around in a cart is beyond me...on Sunday they don't double tee and my threesome was first off.  we got around in 2 hours 15 minutes...Saturday with double tees 1hour 5 mon front 3 hour back...

I had (have) a 2.0 I've pushed for about 3 years. Picked up the 8.0 (4 wheeler) last July and rolled about 5 rounds with it.

In case anyone is wondering how durable they are.....  long story short mine rolled down a fairway and over an embankment
into a rocky ravine. I expected to see a twisted pile of metal. After picking up and sorting everything out and putting it all back
together, except for a couple of small scratches I'd have to point out to you you'd never know what had happened.  Still amazed
at the durability.  I was convinced it would have been ready for the junk yard completely unrepairable.

My partners laughed their asses off watching me chase this thing and then watching it go over and down. Clubs flying, bag bouncing
cart cartwheeling....

From A to Z I give this my highest 5 star rating.

Pkg arrived today! Much earlier than expected. Ordered from TSG on cyber Monday and already here. Although the 60* is backordered. Yururi raw gekku conforming (apparently only avail on TSG?) My guests are still not here for dinner so these are already shafted, epoxied, and curing as we speak. Unfortunately I don't have grips so will have to run to the store tomorrow after my round.

Ya, and I bought heads only and was charged $18 flat per head for shipping even though they'd come in the same box. I get that it's coming from Japan but can't imagine it being that much more for every extra head.

Nice early Christmas present.

I got 2x Yururi Tataki 56.5* & 2x Keigekiku Tour 52 from the same place for $105 a head without any of that extra shipping malarkey. I found when it came to prices it was a lottery, one day you got a good deal, one day you got told to go elsewhere.

Enough of that, I'm really interested to hear your review as for me, they didn't work out and I stayed with my trusty faithful Miura K (no better wedge I have found out of the bunker in 3 years. Although, I have had the sole ground a little to help open up and so the prong points don't catch) which I noticed you had too until my Gold's Factory wedges could arrive.

I had been playing the syard bolds all this season. They were pretty good but man they just look fat and bulky. What didn't u like about the yururis? Too sharp? It's wet out here so well see how much of a trench I dig up tmw with these.
Title: Re: So what did you pick up today?
Post by: Mpuk on December 07, 2014, 02:15:57 AM
I used the same shaft, swing weight etc and the distance was on par with my current Miura's but I didn't like the look of them in person, I will never opt for black coloured heads again.

The feel was disappointing, I hit shots with exactly the same stats but the feeling was too soft. The Miuras give you that satisfying thud feeling when hit well. They also tell you when you haven't hit it well too.

Went to go play today but we had fog and called it so ended up I'm the driving range. The DI is freaking awesome. The shaft works fine. Goes a little left for me I think because of the way it sets up. My shots are usually straight or right. Def a keeper.  Now just curious about 903 vs 901. I hit my buddies mizuno Di which is good but when I hit the epon in the center you know it's good and on mishits still forgiving.

Also not sure when to out hybrid or DI into play. My hybrid is also used for get out of junk trouble. No way in hell I'm taking the 903 into the rocks.

and day better in every way.

My club builder in Texas shipped me a set of irons a couple of days a go.... they were supposed to arrive yesterday, Monday.

They delivered them late last night... to him.  Scary time of year to send anything.

Yes, the S200.  Have a set of shafts to put in, need to figure out which shafts go in which heads though.  The 3 sets of irons I need to build are P2, AFT and the 945s my shaft options are Thump, Roddio, Recoil, and Recoil's Predecessor.  Have 1 set of each shaft.  These are the contenders for the '15 bag...

The iBrids will most likely be getting the QFE UT 85x.

Which shafts?  Mine had the S200's and they sucked.  Did nothing for feel.  The NS 980's that came in the 745's are night
and day better in every way.

My club builder in Texas shipped me a set of irons a couple of days a go.... they were supposed to arrive yesterday, Monday.

Got this yesterday. Will try this in my LFD after Bassara P (stock shaft), TRPX Touale, Diamana B, and Roddio M5. Today the M5 worked so well, but it launched too high so will try the Air next week.

In case the Air can't do the magic, in a few months I'll go to Tokyo and build that shaft.

Post by: ian-500 on January 07, 2015, 09:48:23 AM
Another killer combo. Can't wait to hear what you think of the two drivers.

Had a quick range session at lunch time with both drivers. Took along the Epon Technity and Cleveland XL Custom too.

After a quick warm up to dial my swing in, I was VERY impressed with the Srixon. Had the head set 1.5 degrees open. Both the Kamui and Srixon seemed to be equally forgiving but the Srixon felt/sounded more explosive off the face. The Kamui is very muted in comparison. Actually its muted fullstop. Both give a very similar ballflight, with perhaps the Kamui a touch higher. Just. Can't compare distance as the range I went to ends at 200yds. Both drivers were carrying the 30ft/40ft or so netting that is supposed to stop balls from entering a farm at the back of the range!!

I swapped out the Diamana for the Matrix that was in the Cleveland and this gave a higher ballflight and didn't feel as good.

I love the look and feel of the Kamui. This is very close to the Epon Techinity as the best feeling driver ever for me.

I intend to take all of these to a LM session soon, plus take them on the course to gauge actual distance and dispersion. Will report back.
