JDM Enthusiasts ?
« on: October 14, 2018, 01:02:00 PM »
There used to be quite a few JDM enthusiasts, especially during the 7D shaft, GF Putter, ZY-11, days and now there are the same 1 dozen guys in the whole world ?  What gives ?  The other site is practically down, where did everybody go ?  Maybe we should just do a group text with Nob, Stew, Art and Ian ?

You can add me Robbie to the whatsapp thread...

I think JDM is bigger than ever in North America...JDM has a local presence now and pxg has opened up a new market in the us...I'm getting sold prices locally for my gear...several guys rave about my old sets and I'm getting solid offers locally for my jdm gear...I've also consulted/basically fit and purchased components and had them build to spec for a couple friends, both I put in a set of arts old iron shafts and they were amazing....5 years ago several guys though I purchased cheap China knockoffs...had several guys make comments like "you're a pretty good player...why don't you get yourself some decent clubs?"....there are a dozen guys at my club (membership of around 240) with epon in and out of the bag and half of them aren't guys I play with who've sucked up my lil brother specials....

The boards have always ebbed and flowed...the jdm section on wrx is ignorant...TSG is a ghost town...at least we have this board...it's pretty good...I find 9 out of 10 of the opinions I care to hear post regularly here...and we've got squirts...I live vicariously through squirts....someday, he'll be my member-guest partner....someday.....

After 2+ years of buying everything JDM under the sun, Im trying to settle on my optimal set.
Ive been playing like CRAP this year. Blaming it on lack of practice & old age.

So far my optimal bag has:
Irons :  OnOff Forged (2011) w/ Roddio I-10s (my crappy swing needs the forgiveness)
Wedges :  Cleveland RTX-3s (the V soles give me confidence I wont dig & chili dip)
FW :  TM M1 3HL (2016)  (my misses arent that horrible compared to other FWs)
Putter :  Nike Method Matter M5/10 center shaft mallet (pretty anti-yip for me)
Ball :  Srixon Q-Star (pretty straight and decent spin & feel around the greens)

Driver :  my nemesis club. Played the PRGR RS-F (2016) this weekend. Saturday round was good, Sunday round was awful.
Hybrid/Ute :  unsettled. Rotating between Egg i+ (fugly), OnOff ProSpec, Cobra F6/F7.

So sort of East meets West setup.

Jeeez Ed, our set-up is very similar. You're right, east meets west.
Driver: Cobra F9 8 + Fujikura Speeder TR 757x.
HY: Adams XTD 18 + Matrix white tie x.
HY: Adams Pro 23/DHY 27 + Tour AD UT95x/UST Irod105x.
Irons: Adams XTD Forged 6i - GW + UST Recoil Prototype 125.
Wedges: Callaway PM19 54/58 + KBS Hi-Rev
Putter: SeeMore SB1 + Accra FX 300

For me it's similar to @95124hacker: I'm trying to settle on my optimal set.

My OnOff forged (2013) irons are paired with some Mitsubishi OTi shafts and are the core of my set. This combination withstood every attack by various irons (Miura, grindworks, RomaRo, Yamaha) so far. The overall performance is too good to be replaced.
On the low end are a couple of wedge sets in a small rotation depending on my mood: Fourteen RM-22, grindworks 86 series, Miura Tour Wedge, Yamaha black, grindworks Tungsten. Shaft is mostly Shimada Tour Wedge only the grindworks 86 series set has Modus3 105 wedge shaft but this is going to be changed this winter.
In the long section there is quite a mix: 4iron non JDM, high cor with KuroKage shaft; 3hy RomaRo iBrid ch2 with Atrax shaft; 5wood Adams Tight Lies 2 Titanium non JDM with Mitsubishi Bassara shaft.
Driver is a Yamaha V201 with Attas 4U shaft that is also hard to push out of my bag.
Putter: grindworks forged plus one with Mitsubishi prototype shaft

This week I will get a Romaro R-Type TS 5+ (16.5) head that should kick the Adams 5wood out of the bag and fill the gap between 3hy and driver. At least the Adams has a JDM shaft and it's a titanium head what makes it a bit special. And it is very easy and forgiving to play.
The 4iron is also to be changed - maybe by a Miura ICL-601 driving iron. I like to have an all JDM Bag at one time.

Cool, guys are starting to emerge, have we all reached a saturation point ?  Ive decided that the best irons for me are from 2013 and the best wedges for me are from 2005 and the fairway wood is from 2011....and my Golds putters are here to stay so basically all I do is rotate drivers.
