About the only way to find them is on secondhand Japan sites unless you have someone to comb the used shops in Tokyo. And Stew already probably has boots on the ground looking for backups! I watched yahoo Japan for several weeks until one popped up lightly used. Worth the effort though in my opinion.

Like Pervy says, it almost seems like it can't be conforming, although purportedly it is. I hit it on a monitor just to see and my peak ball speeds weren't higher than perfect strikes with their demo drivers, so it seems to be in line there but distance is extraordinary on the course. It's one of those rare beasts that's not only super long when middled, but sneaky long on misses too.

There are three of them on yahoo.jp right now.  Two of them are "buy it now" and as Stew said one is
bidding.

At 60,000 yen with fees and shipping that's around $625 US.  Not bad.

Guess I won't bother to bid... might hurry and pick up one of the "buy it now" combo's.

They're starting to show up more and more regularly....  means they will start selling for less and less.

Played the 358 Shingo-Stinger 70s today. Not a very good showing Im afraid. Had my Epon 153-Stinger 60s to compare. Epon won out today.
I wasnt missing too far off line with the 358 but the thick heavy rough was penalizing. Hit the Epon 153-Stinger 60s on a few holes and it was money. Giving the 358 combo another try this Sunday. Playing 36 at the course they play the PGA John Deere Classic.
Need more bourbon!

100% with you !  I am surprised not more people are using 153s.
153 / AAA combo is magic for me.   can hit controlled draws with long carry all day long.
Just cant imAgine anything better at the moment.  til i get my 7d /Grandista in 3 weeks that is.:)!

Agree on 153, just very solid, I paired w a fuji platinum and it's as long as anything I've had, more solid feeling and forgiving...just seem to hit good shots consistently with it...

Does the 358 come in any other loft than 9.5?  Would like to give it a whirl...I like onoff Utes and fwys but have never tried one of their drivers...

I believe more then one of us is bidding for these heads and driving the price up. Just wanted to post this to let everyone know I am one of the bidders.
