Congrats. Tad Moore is considered one of the OG putter makers.  I dont' have one and don't quite like his style but that's just me.

Was looking for a new putter.  Tad Moore putters don't seem to be very popular in Japan, as the auction prices are quite a bit lower than in US. 
Picked up a Longneck CF with copper insert.  Figured I would add a few other clubs to fill up the box.   Looked for a long shafted backup driver.
Found a 2018 Onoff AKA with a Grand Bassara GB39 stiff shaft at 46.25 length.  The 10 degree is 1 degree closed face, so I was hitting high
draws so far in first two rounds.  Decent feel.  Distance very good also.  Expected the light shaft to be a bit soft at this length,  but
it has a reasonably firm stiffness.  Most surprising is how accurate I was hitting it.

Yes, C Taper probably.   Nice look and feel, but they are too low launching for me.

KBS Tour are stepped. Probably C-Taper or C-Taper Lite if they are KBS.

I remember True Temper came out with a stepless shaft but can't remember model name or anything. Project X has stepless shaft but in chrome or black only.

Liking them so far. 

Not as soft feeling as the wedges which is not a bad thing but so much better feeling and meatier feeling than the CNCPT 02 which one should expect as the latter is a hollow muscle.

Green holding for these is not an issue.  They do seem to spin a tad more than the tits. I'm not sure if that is a function of the Bangvoo in the Artisans and the Stellar in the tits.

Distance wise, these are a tad shorter than the tits.  Again, should be expected as the tits are 2* stronger than the Artisans in the shorter irons and 1* in the 5 and 6 I think.

Playing a 2 day tourny next month and will play the Artisans for this.

Yes, looks just like the KBS Tour Satin.  That model must not have sold very well.  The only hit I get on Google is one Ebay ad.

Picked up another set of irons from golfpartner last week: Yamaha 2015 RMX Tour Model PB.  Golfpartner gave them a C condition rating, but they look like they've only been played 2 rounds.  Good price, probably because ad said "shaft details unknown".  Took the yamaha grip off the 5I but still could not find any id markings.  Shaft is stepless steel, very much of a satin look, and weighs about 111g (5I cut weight).  Apparently a special order from Yamaha as it has the Yamaha sticker on the 5I, and serial numbers on all 6 shafts.  Any guesses as to what brand/model it is?  I will try to post a pic below a TT black gold stepless shaft.
