toss up between  the mizuno mp series.  and the akira proto m-09
unhittable slice- matrons unless u hit the .000000000000001 mm   sweet spot, then  then they went miles.

The most underwhelmed club i have ever bought has to be the Jbeam 435R.....there are very few drivers that i have bought and instantly hated but this is one of the all time duds for me !  i have proabably purchased over a 100 drivers  ( haha maybe even over 200 ) and this one was horrible.  Since stew mentioned it the epon 3 wood was pretty bad as well.  Reading over the items mentioned, the egg v1 actually worked well for me but it felt weird and sounded pretty bad.  The Crazy shafts were hit and miss but the ly02 was my favorite.

Worst irons EVER:
Yururi KM 0107 I believe was the model #.  Looked like somebody's dream set, played like a nightmare.  Probably
the only irons I down right hated.  Had a hard time giving them away and felt bad for the guy who took them.  I
noticed he had them for sale a short time later...

Everything Epon was a big disappointment to me, irons, 3 wood and drivers were just average at best.
Crazy and Jbeam drivers, harsh.
Crazy shafts until I got a 80 cb ls noir

Most overrated club I've ever had is the Ryoma maxima.  It's also the best driver I've ever had. I hit big hooks with it all the time but they seem to be longer and more impressive than hooks I hit with other drivers. So I guess what I'm saying is that while its awesome I expected more so I am also very disappointed.

Most of them are pre- JDM.....
 I don't know if I can get myself to hit any USDM driver, wood or irons again. Used to check out the latest offering in golf shops but now not even interested walking in to golf stores unless there are sales for clothing, footwear , golf balls  or the stores offer JDM clubs( new model).

Ryoma, Ryoma, Ryoma!! There was so much pump and dump for this driver and the Crazy shafts by Chris and TSG herd mentality. It all got the best of me with trading in and out of more than a few and costing me more than a few. Also killed the better part of the start of my season with trying to find all the magic that others were talking about. Now hitting an SLDR which is out driving any Ryoma I ever owned by about 20-25 yards and at about one third the price! ::)
