The Real McCoy?
« on: October 16, 2018, 06:48:21 AM »
Are these the original Shinagawa Grinds that Grindworks, Mirai and that fark head copied?

These seem to have a chiba like brushed finish and near zero offset.

I saw this set on YAJ ...   beautiful set.
That blank is used by Shinagawa themselves,  Mirai Golf and Seven.  Grindworks MB is their original shape.
I think each brand has their own FP specs and finishes.   I do like this Arakenma finish. 
The advantage of a coarse finish like that is that bag chatter would not show at all.   :)

I just noticed...  a 3 iron (21 deg)  in that set?     Oh boy!! good luck with that! 
my 4 iron is sitting on bench because I'm just not confident enough to hit it decently.

Nope.  Stumbled upon it.  I still don;t think I'm blade level and definitely not putting in enough time and effort to get there.  Natural talent is also lacking. ;D

Thin sole, straight neck.. your ball striking will need to be really good for these i reckon.

I think the well thought out sole grind with lots of leading edge relief on these provide a good amount of forgiveness from a sole interaction perspective.
I do feel these are more forgiving than say a Mizuno MP4 or Titleist MB.   
 
But most of all, it's fun to watch the facial expressions of people who look at it ( in particular golf club enthusiast types ) and just say "OMG!!"
One time a course pro looked at it and immediately instagrammed to his playing buddies!! 
They are a thing of beauty for sure!
