Idk man look like two completely different designs to me other than they look somewhat similar on the face. Only so many shapes you can do with a Sarazen style wedge I guess.

That's the kind of "blade" shape that scares me.  Screams super unforgiving to me.  The CG of the Fujimoto should be much higher and lower spinning. Depending on how high or low you strike the ball on the face, may ot may not be good for you.

The fitting I had at Titty... as I tend to strike the ball slightly higher on the face...cant; recall which line.. the CNCPT 2 with a higher cg and mass not as close to the sole suit me better.  Number were better and actually shots using pro Vs were better.

Not exactly JDM, but I got my bending machine in today.  Still have 3 packages at 3 different postal centers in Japan, all awaiting outward dispatch. 

I'll be lucky to get them this season, damn COVID-19...

Stay safe everyone.

Some of the Elite grips I ordered came in today.  Also got notified that 2 other packages made it one step further in the shipping from Japan process...

I have had multiple days of delay on every package since 3/28. One order just got released from their customs yesterday and another that finally updated to Accepted by outward office after 6 days of having been dropped at PO.

Finally received the 2020 Yam RMX 020 5-P.  Will be my initial foray into a player's cavity back design.

Came shafted with the Yam RMX 95 which is made by Nippon Shaft.  Not sure if it is modeled off of the NS 950 or a Modus shaft.  Graphic implies it is Modus, but I am not sure.

Similarly, not sure what I will re-shaft them with, I have sets of Attas 115X or 10SX some older Roddio I10s in house or do I wait for the Tensei AMT2 White...

Interesting. Almost like a modus 95.

That is what I was thinking, too.

Steel shafts have not stayed in my clubs for more than a round or two in close to 10 years, so no frame of reference when I actually hit them.

From what I've read, you're heading towards 100g weighted shafts, so don't bother with the 115x. Brand new irons require a brand new set of shafts, so AMT2 it is....

I’d at least try the stock shaft it might be very good and the Nippons will feel as close to carbon and you can get in a steel shaft. Doesn’t cost anything to try.

I usually play a couple of rounds with the stock shaft to see if I like the heads.  My experience, is that they all fly way too high for my preferred ball flight.

Finally received the Tensei iron shafts and a couple of other miscellaneous shafts and replacement Forbos head covers.  One package sat in Japan post office for a month before being released and it looks like another is headed for a similar fate.  Already been a couple of weeks.

Whats up with this dude? :-[

Note from Mod - would have deleted this one too, but I know Art has a vested interest in 6000 posts.

About time you exert some authority around here.
