Title: Shidanikki blog
Post by: 95124hacker on December 22, 2018, 04:38:17 AM
As fellow JDM club enthusiasts, I think we all try to search for information online about various clubs but with sometimes little success, especially if the club is obscure or not a popular model.

Iíve often found information on certain clubs from this Shidanikki blog. It looks like the blogger has access to many clubs. He takes a lot of pictures at all angles which I like. However, all his information is based on hitting at the range, not the golf course. I get it though - golf in Japan is very expensive, but... we all know hitting a club off a mat is very different than hitting it on the course (from rough, uneven lies, to tucked targets, etc). Nevertheless some information is better than none.

Does anyone know the background of the blogger? Any opinions of his write ups?

Hereís one I was reading today:

Google translate can be brutal at times, but hey, you can deduce a lot if you read between the lines.

I've read many of his reviews via Google translate.  I like that he goes into obscure brands as well albeit much less lately.  I also think he's Indy which is what I appreciate.
