Being a fan of the STP UT shafts, I've been wanting to try the STP iron shafts for a while. Managed to get what looks like a very good condition 5 to PW set.  Will soft step as I don't play a 5I these days.

Which irons?  A special set to be released this Spring.  Quasi JDM.

It's 2021, http://www.triphas.co.jp/products/aaa2021_std.php
I epoxied a tip on it last night and waiting on it to cure. I have a 2018 model, and I think '21 will have a softer butt compared to that. I'll post a review once snow melts and driving range opens.

Fack, I hope it's my slow, rusty swing but this shaft is stiiiiiiiiiffff. Feels good, very smooth actually just "too stiff". Perhaps 50S would have been better.

Just made payment for an Olsen.  Rather stoked about it.  It'll be my first custom in a very long time.

This arrived today.  Super stoked.  Really high quality milling and finishing.  Light face mill which is great to avoid that mushy feel.

Will install a NS Pro XXIP shaft and rosemark grip tomorrow.

Oh jeez. I've never had a shaft break on me (yet). Surely there's a guarantee?

I reached out to triphas and they said "sure thing, just send it back to the store and they will return it to us" but neither buyee or the store want to arrange for it for various reasons  :'(

Sorry to hear.  This is a different experience to mine when all the spotting occured.  They arranged with the local dealer to replace mine.

Not the latest offering by any means but obscure enough to garner some curiosity...  Reve Toxic...



So I've been gaming this for the past several rounds.  Have switched out the Diamond Speeder with the Crazy 9 Dia which helped lower the trajectory a tad.  This has got a very hot face and a very good combo of carry and run.  Plenty forgiving as well.

I might reach out to triphas again and see what they say. I don't know but I feel like buyee is being a bunch of dicks and refusing to do anything. They're saying I can't return it because it's been more than two weeks since the item shipped, even though I told them I contacted the manufacturer about a breakage and they said to bring it back to the store. Also they say I broke it while in use. When I asked for Rakuten order number, so that I could email the store directly, they kept giving me buyee order # saying it's the same as Rakuten #. But I know it's not. The store doesn't want to do anything of course because they don't have a way to validate I bought from them. I'm done using buyee. Rakuten offers package forwarding now and there's Tenso as well.
