Nice Ian!!

Ezone series were such a great line up!   My first true JDM experience that did not come off of eBay.
They were the hottest lineup in Yonex history.  Mainly due to Ryo Ishikawa's Super Star performance back then.   

I had the full set up from driver to putter!

EZone 380 9 deg ( later switched to the 450 model ) Tour AD DI 70
EZone 3W 13 deg / Tour AD DI 70
EZone DI 16 deg Tour AD DI Hyb 95
Ezone MB 3-PW / Modus 120 S
EZone Wedges 52, 56, 60  / WV115
EZone EZP-001

Ryo should just go back to Yonex.

I went for the middle ground in the type-420. This one is in fantastic condition and comes with this stock shaft:

I've never tried any Yonex stuff and I've heard some good things about them. I think the face is SP700.
Tempted to try some nanov forged irons too 👍

I'm in Soft Forged heaven!! 

Really happy with the SUS316s I am bagging now and today the heads that I have been waiting for have finally arrived.
Miura CB-1008  99.3 Pure Iron 4-PW!!

In the headset, they included head covers,  ferrules and a ball marker made out of 99.3 pure iron which are the excess burr from producing the heads.  ( pretty cool idea! ) 

The face shape is very similar to the SUS316.  The sole is a tad wider on the Miuras.   
We'll have to see how forgiving these heads are in comparison.

Nob,

What's the story behind 99.3% iron clubheads?  I've never heard of them.

For these irons, Miura is using steel that is much higher in purity compared to your typical S20C or S25C. 
Higher purity supposedly helps produce softer feel.   
It was also mentioned that pure iron is much more difficult to grind because it is softer to begin with.
The metal apparently tries to stick to the grinder surface.   

They started using these 99.3 pure iron steel first in the S-01 wedges about a year and a half ago.
I have been using these wedges since they came out.  They are really soft similar to what SUS316 feel like.

Along with the head itself,  I do know that the type of shaft you use also contribute to overall feel at impact and so does the ball.

the ball................. oh yes.... the ball
the new bridgestone is like a sticky marshmallow. I was hitting my epon af tours sunday  with the new balls, seriously I cundt feel the impact.

I was playing the x-01z in tandom MAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSIVE  difference.
prefer the new models looks, that hexagon pimple look to the ball is amazing, but.. I do putt MILES better with the harder compound , I was always coiming up  shot with the new  ones, but I gotta paly them the feel ridiculous

email me if you want me to pick up some for you.  There is only the chrome x left which is like the pro v1x.  It's about 40 or 45 quid in your terms?  Gotta be a good deal.
