Japanese Golf Gear / Re: So what did you pick up today?

They just came out last week. Don't know what Mizuno's ti co-forging is, but these just have a chunk of titanium placed behind the face to spread the weight around. Played 18 today and so far they feel and sound good, seem forgiving.

Havenít made the move to wireless yet. Still rocking my towers in a 5.1 off a Marantz SR7007 AVR in the home theater. If I moved and had to start over Iíd probably go wireless for the convenience. Wires are already run here both upstairs and downstairs here.

Putter Talk, The Workshop, and Golf Accessories / Axis1 Rose

Decided to give one of these a try and see if it helped get rid of the short putt yips Iíve been battling. Rolled it for the first time yesterday for about 30-45 mins on the practice green. For those of you that donít know this is the revolutionary unit that Justin Rose has or had been playing well with.

Iíve always had my best luck with putters that in my terms ďswing themselvesĒ and this putter definitely fits the mold. Itís nicely made, feels nice off the face, and seems fairly idiot proof, which was the primary focus. Will see how it performs in my hands during actual rounds. Forgot to take pics when I was putting yesterday sorry.

I agree that was kind of the high water mark

I feel 2012/2013 is when JDM had really its last good year. Yamaha was still forged by Endo before they started with their RMX line.

Iíve had the 2013 ONOFF in various builds over the years. Great sticks.

Having been revisiting a lot of the ghosts of golfing past I set out to put together a bag of oldies but goodies that I remember playing good golf with or really enjoying hitting. I cheated a little bit in that I got an iBrid chapter two rather than the original I had back in 2012/2013 because I had never tried one.

I didnít have the PP-9003 very long back then because I was in a super hoe mode and didnít have kids but I specifically remember some of the best feeling iron shots I ever experienced were with these heads and the RomaRo Pro Forged. So Iím kind of chasing a feel Iíve lost since Iíve been playing more of the ďplayerís distanceĒ type irons lately and even my Yoro MP-5 didnít have the same pure feel as the Miura and RomaRo.

The hollow, thin faced/welded face irons, even the Epon and Mizuno, just donít have the feel Iím looking for and most of the Miura lineup is above my current skill level. And it doesnít hurt that Chip Usher is selling the 9003SN for $150 built with Modus shafts and choice of grip. 😬
So they seemed like the logical choice.

The Axis1 Rose is new to me, havenít even rolled it yet. I still have my custom copper on carbon Lajosi from that time frame I could put back in the bag. Iíve lost my short game since I moved on from the PM grind I had in the bag since 2015 that at the time instantly improved my wedge play. I was able to find one that is essentially brand new so itís going back in the bag.

The RomaRo 435LX with the original FEX 65SX was the best driver combo I ever had so I am rebuilding that. Itís amazing how the original FEX still holds its value so well! The Epon 105 with Speeder Evo II is 1b. Then I got caught up in all the USDM composite stuff and found a few extra yards but I just canít square up these giant toasters on a stick to save my life.

The Egg fairways were the first ever fairways I could hit well so that was a logical step. Now if I could just find 6 dozen 2013 ProV1X (favorite ball ever) new in the box that have been stored in a climate controlled facility Iíll be set!

Iím hoping this bag brings back some good memories and better scores!

Nice to visit old and effective themes...
