I have to say, I was surprised you ended that marriage. 

Can't remember, btw, which Recoils you played and how you compared them the the Steelfiber?

He had BE edition Recoils. Only the best for MBBG...

The recoils I had were built by BE and they were a train wreck. Felt great but once put into use they had some crazy behavior and ultimately the heads started flying off. So its kind of hard for me to say but I just always get along well with Aerotechs. And the MCI 120 were excellent as well.

I have a set (plated) 4-PW on order.  If these make the bag, they will truly have to be amazing.  I'll be coming from blades so I don't think playability will be an issue.  I'm just a bit worried as to their workabilty and amount of off-set.  Oh and this assumes they are as soft as people are saying as well.

Plan to test them with nippon SPB's but also have a set of dg tours on the side if need be.

I can't wait.

well guys i have several rounds under my belt
these are definitely not as soft as the 302s.
sorry to burst your marshmallows. i find this a good
thing though and reminds me of the Yams and even Kyoeis.

this is due to Stainless steel which as we know is harder than other steel.
sorry I'm  not technical enough to explain.

Ran into a buddy on the range today. I knew he picked up a set but he had been injured so I hadn't seen em yet . looked over a few stalls down and saw a bag of Epon head covers and was like whoa... Who else near me plays Epon. Then I realized it was him and his new 316.
I got to hit them. Pretty sweet Epon feeling.

Here are some more pics.

Hi guys
Hit my sus for the first time tonight and one word comes to mind. Wow!!  Ive been a 0 offset blade player forever and had no issues transitioning to these. I actually gained half a club in distance and the ball is flying a full club higher. Shafted with nippon spb's.

For the record this isnt my ride. I just happened to be in the back seat with my. 7i lol

I have the same setup 4-pw spb. I'm dabbling with the idea of shafting my 3 with Spo
