Thanks for posting the deramax.. am looking for new iron shafts to try.  Have been looking get reve and design tuning.  Will look these up now as well.

Flex wise, how do these stack up to your tour ad?  You mentioned these do not hook for you but that could be down to tip stiffness and bend profile as opposed to overall flex.

If it doesn't have to be JDM, how about the new KBS TGi?

You should know me better by now Ian...

Damn it Art, thought you might look outside the box :)

On a serious note, is there any JDM iron shafts with metal in their composition other than MCI? So far, those that have metal in their construction (USDM) have been the best for me.

Kbs would be sooooo in the mainstream box

These are very stiff.  Can only generate a small bend with a strong waggle or practice swing.  I usually play SX on irons and SR to S on woods.  PRGR M46 work very well for me.   I just moved these to my PRGR iD Forged irons, but got rained out today.   The Tour AD I last tried were 85 weight.   I hooked many into the left bunker with them.   A heavier weight Tour AD might work for me.

Don, how are the deramax shafts coming along?

Too stiff for my taste.  Had one good round, two poor rounds.  But my swing is a little off this time of year.

So even stiffer than your tour ad 85 SX.... That's stiff man.

I had a decent round with the original setup.
The original owner must have had a hint they were stiff.  I dumped the thin Velvet ribbed grips,
and saw the 3 was on the 5I (softstep by 2), and +0.5.   
Then I installed the 4 on 5I, etc.   That seemed to exceed my tolerance level and played poorly.
The M46 shafts I use are steel, not graphite.

Got them for the shafts mainly but willing to give the heads a go. Size & offset (5i & PW shown) are similar to my ‘11 OnOff’s. Raining this weekend so won’t be able to hit them for a while. Will post my impressions soon.

Only review of the RC’s I found was on the Shidanikki site.

Was able to hit them at the range, side by side with my current gamers (2011 OnOff Forged w/ Roddio I-10 stiffs).

First impressions: the Crazy CBI-02 stiffs definitely feel harsher on off center strikes than the I-10’s. Middled hits are like frozen butter (little vibration but not soft soft). The RC’s are S25C not S20C so the feel isn’t surprising to me. I need to man up and increase my swing speed to properly load these shafts. With range balls, they seem 1/2 club shorter than my OnOff’s with less spin as they seem to just fall out of the sky.

Need to take them to the course for a test round.

Are those heads cast or forged?
