Japanese Golf Gear / Re: So what did you pick up today?
« Last post by Shacco on Today at 03:08:31 AM »
Continuing the putter theme, I picked up a used LH Yamada Imperial in burning copper.  She's not a trailer queen, definitely an everyday driver, but the reality of coming across a pristine burning copper Yamada AND in left hand is slim pick'ns without paying something outrageous.  Wish I could've got a Kamakura, but again it's pretty much non-existent in LH.  I even contacted John Muir at clubmaker-online and he explained that Yamada-san does not make any handmade series in LH anymore, the only LH model he currently offers is the machine milled "Stick of Life" model.  Not sure if anyone may have other info on that.

This Imperial is my second Yamada to go along with the LH IPT I picked up a few months ago.  The IPT has since kicked out the Ghost Spider that I have been gaming the past two years.  I'm really loving the IPT, especially after I McGuyver'd it with an Attas graphite shaft last week, I'll try to post something on it later.

Also picked up a few wedges, a Yamaha Black 58* (already have the 52*), and a 52*/58* set of Mutsumi Honma wedges from a few years back.  Came across the Mutsumi's browsing YAJ and they caught my eye.  Love that the branding on the wedge is classy and traditional yet different than most.  Was specifically looking for raw/black wedges and they check those boxes.  They also have glittery ferrules and (the kicker for me) sakura flowers stamped on the toe face...kawaii.  So far I've played 3 rounds with the Mutsumi's and I really like how they play.  Feel is relatively soft, not as soft as my Epon 208 but close to it.  Definitely softer than the Yamaha Black which is pretty firm.  Spin is about the same as the 208 for me.  Head is about the same as the 208 with just a touch of offset.  What I love about the wedges is the control and consistency off the face I'm getting.  It will be kicking out the Epon 208 for now.  Very good wedge, I'd recommend a try if you come across a set.     

                   

Nice, we seem to share a similar taste for wedges. I can't knock out that Yamaha wedge out of my bag.

leather gripmaster grips.. put them on a whole set. had a quic k test with them  nad they work best. not overly  thrilled with the thickness and roundness of the shape , I much prefer a taperd grip, but when its wet ill take anything.



wet bag..

kasco fd 12.8*/ diamanan stinger 70x
prgr egg  18* / diamana stinger 70xx

I don't think the driver will be any longer than the Epic. Maybe, just maybe slightly more forgiving but not longer.
Now the FW I find more intriguing. I will probably in the market for a new 3W in 2018 and this will be one of the candidates. But it could also be that jailbreak will not have the effect in a FW that it has in the driver. Let's see. Interesting nevertheless.

The Driver is longer....100%

Longer ... front to back. True.  :P
