So, who got it?
Closed at 57000. I dropped out at 48000yen. Didn't think it was worth more then that.

For only 358 made I've been surprised how many have already come through.

On a positive note I bought a TRPX messenger FW shaft for a 10,000 yen ($85US) early this morning on Yahoo.

ok  driver lovers i know u all want to know,  where does this stand in the pantheon of goodness????

well if it wasnt previosuy  definitive  ,it is now! .
its THE best driver for sound /feel ive hit, its gone past the epon zero crazy  ls noir.
soared past it.

sat and sunday in 38* redciulsousness sweat, humidity and NO FOOOOKEEEN wind. it was head to  head vs these.
jbeam 435 / Quadra FEX75sx
justick 435 / diamana aliislei 73s
prgr egg 1. diamaman ali aslei 73s
prgr egg 7 (9*) diamana aliislei 73s
jbeam 435 / diamana stinger 70x
kasco DNA 340 / fujikura  wacccine 88gts

quite a mouth full

well. luckily i was playing very well, and in particluar driving very well.
 was hitting the  mid nicely pretty much every time.

ok...

well it wins on feel and sound if u like a bit of tinnnnnnnnnnnnng.
if u like mute  (jbeam) , u will hate this.
second behind it was the egg 7 with  the alislei  (egg 7 is the orignal model)
that thing is fantastic as well much more lively that the newer model.
 the mute ones were the jbean stinger and the justick aliislei. very mute.
 the jbeam with the FEX was pretty alive actually . very diffent feel.
 simlar to the kasco both of these were in the middle ground ofr sound / feel.

so the onoff 358 is all carry. actually i get back spin on j grass its so moist.
but sat  afternoon  i got  some run when it dried out a bit  hit and relesed a bit wasnt like the egg gets  but it  i squueked a cpl more out of it   all up  i found this gets out there  "conistantly long."

i took the full  45.75 inch long handle to a cpl yesteday afternoon , lovely  draw  a full monty   all i ve got  swing  and it  easily  took it. no big bend , it was spot on. loved it.
but the best thing about it is its MILES easier to hit than most of what ive listed above, i  dont have ot go after it  really ,  i can just smooth it out with a draw and i get meaximum gain. even whae i took the long handle it  was so so smooth.
The one problem i did encounter (was switching form heavy to light  drivers  ) threw my tempo out a bit ,  but wheni  just hit this one 4 or 5 times was no such issue.
(oh its also the best looking driver ive seen as well)
my consisitant mistake i make with it is bec it draws i try and over do that shot and ive snapped a few into the OB left jungle.   somehitng that ive only done with the syard 388. but i think that was a factor of swapping  drivers heavy  to light, with my heavier ones i really have to concentrate on gettign the right hand thru for a draw  swing. when i do this with this one ( and the syard) it snaps .

the  high kick is addictive in the shaft and as much a  i think i wud like or prefer the 70 weight shaft, this as it is built is spot on i (dont)  think illl swap it. if anything ill get another with the 70xs
oh and the head shape is fantastic.


so impressed with this combo.

im not sure.....,  , i dont think it is  really.., although 3.7 torque  is very veyr hight for what i noramml hit, the diaman X is 2.7 
i think  its  just high launching   alsmot reminds me of the EPON 101 with a face lift...

, chiro u cud never hit this  combo, ud hit saturn !


the ball doesnt seem to spin  much , it feels kinda nude TBH, and  explodes off the face.
literally. bannnnnnnnnnnng!
so nice.

Thanks.  Higher launch is ok.  Higher spin is just not good for my hack swing.
