Obviously everyone is going to have their own individual experience, but for the most part I've found the usdm drivers to be both longer and more forgiving than their JDM counterparts. And the ability to easily change shafts is a huge bonus for me.

On the other hand, I don't think anyone does irons and wedges better than the folks in Japan

No argument that the usdm drivers and fwys perform...or that they're convenient with all the interchangeability and tweaking you can do...they look all shiny and badgy...pick up a new one the next time you pick up razor blades....

Ordered a Mizuno MMC Fli Hi 4 iron shafted with a Recoil 95.
Was planning on getting a Mizuno Pro Fli Hi from Japan but looks like you absolutely cannot buy online.   The US version is exact same from a material and spec perspective.  So whatever.

Anyway, I tested this on a simulator and it felt phenominal. 
Not solid forged feel but soft with a tiny bit of springiness.
Much better feel compared to their last two offerings: mph4 and h5 which felt a bit more hollow.
The new Fli Hi also has a thinner top line and looks less chunky.

driving irons have taken a departure in the long iron department. i however love them
right now in mid irons. have replaced my 5 and 6 with a 901/25 and just choke.

that mizzy looks interesting. let us know how it goes. i would like to give the new honma a try especially in 24 and 27* loft

Got a new driver head: A.Japa Matrix. I'm still unsure about the shaft  but I got 5 spare adapters. Maybe I will try some FineOne T3 shafts. Interestingly the adapter from the Srixon Z model drivers fit into the A.Japa Matrix as well so the first shaft I will try is a Graphite Design TourAD DI-6.
