That would be awesome!  Having established a fairly sizable long position in jdm gear, I think that would accelerate the recognition and help the softest karket ive ever seen since I started hoarding jdm...

Honma makes great stuff, such a cool brand with a rich history.

Honma, PRGR, Yamaha, and a few others are the brand that provide both performance and forgiveness along with high standard (reliability in product quality, range of gears to choose, etc) so why not?

Seeing this in many websites now so I think it’s solid news

Should be good for the Market

Don't think it's gonna happen...JR play I g Honma... but it should happen...the jdm brands need to move aggressively into the us market imo...pxg has proven that the market is there and growing at jdm price points...I'd add RomaRo,  onoff/roddio/lab-o-spec, epon, yonex,  tprx and basileus as brands that could easily establ8sh share in a huge market with the best and cheapest distribution network per square mile in the world...

Wish I was 30...I'd get with tario and open up a can of whoop-ass on the big 5 us brands...would kick a few out in 5 years and turn a profit...

Endo,  free is calling!   I'll double y9ur business and enhance your brand if u let me market your awesome stuff...guaranteed pickup in core, non-golf manufacturing due to the market I g synergy given how visible and visceral the us market is...It's a brand hungry wasteland of decadence...you give these people real substance and I promise they'll be eat I g out of your hands...guaranteed....

Honma 737 woods & hybrids on clearance at my PGA Superstore. Hybrids are $99 with Vizard shaft. Too bad I have too many hybrids already, I didn’t buy any.

That M1 is still overpriced!  POS imo...

Anyway this rose thing has alot more people asking me about jdm gear...2 calls from guys wanting to try, maybe buy some jdm gears...

The market has changed in the us, the big brands r starting to figure it out too...u see the titles cncpt's?  $4k/SET...they're still prob POS compared to many jdm brands but I'm sure they're better quality than the other crap...

If Justin Rose shows up at the Masters playing a Honma bag I’ll eat my shorts. Seriously. I’ll videotape the shit and post it here.

It's official guys. Rose announced it on his Instagram account. He is now team Honma.

So I read a good portion of that thread and I was surprised.  Sure every 3rd or 4th poster was kind of an idiot and had nothing of interest to say but it was my recollection that that was 60+% of the wrx’ers...there were a few guys to who had some real information and had cultivated interesting opinions...I will go back to wrx when I’m bored and this board is dead...I checked tsg over the Holliday as I took advantage of the 20% off coupon to grab a coup,e Ute shafts and there was nothing going on there...just boring...I actually prefer the crazy idiot trolls on wrx over the snoozeville sycophantic vibe going on at tsg...no offense to Chris, as I’ve said many times have had nothing but positive business dealings with him...

Bonobos is a high end brand ($100 chinos, $75 polos...). At least it used to be. There’s a boutique store in a Rodeo Drive type shopping district where I live.

The pants look more like golf clothing than Phil's wool dress slacks do.

Damn, JR’s ball striking (minus a couple of bad ones yesterday) is leaving me thinking about what to do with my set of TW717V’s. Sell while the market is on the rise or keep ‘em and add a driver?
Title: Re: Justin Rose to...
Post by: 95124hacker on February 02, 2019, 04:25:05 PM
Sold my TW717 irons... then immediately started looking for TW727’s. Took tremendous will power to not hit the “Add to Cart” button. LOL!

I had that damn Marie Kondo voice in my head... will another set of irons “spark joy”??  Damn her!
