In the pic the Personals and coppers (yes the ones that have traveled the world) are mine . The 316 in this pic is a coworker of mine.

Having hit my non-plated and Dale's plated, there definitely is a distinct difference between the feel of the 2 versions. The non-plated give a softer feel. One is not better than the other just different.

Yep ill agree with you...theres almost a clicky sound/feel to the plated...
And I hit both with same XP shafts.
Personally I think the non plated look much better and if the sun was out I can see the plated been a issue. ..

That makes sense. There's obviously a reason they made both renditions.  Had I bit on these I'd have opted for unplated.

couple of us are gaming these.

roll call what shafts you gaming them with?

 Spoon nspro modus 120s
coming from spb and the modus are just easier to elevate with the same effort and swing than the spb. have gained half a club as well.
have used covers most of the time but the odd lazy day without covers and hoping i can figure out how to satinize these.

gamed for several months now and i don't really see much difference in forgiveness vs the 302s. these are supposedly less offset thinner top line
etc etc but i don't see a difference. in fact the 302s feel softer than SS. these are a cross between yamaha and miura. soft and firm ;)

I play them on 2g18s, non plated version.
Just found my graal  :D
Feel is awesome, a bit softer than the 302 IMHO.
I gained a full club vs my yam 2013 on MCI 100s.

Not sure why.  I've seen 2 or 3 sets for sale locally in the past month or 2.  Is this supposed to be "limited"?

I heard that Epon made 50 non plated sets and 450 plated, that said I've seen  a serial number in the 700's

I assumed all sets had been placed, maybe they weren't as limited as we thought.
