New To JDM - Been a Club-Hoe Though
« on: May 25, 2019, 08:10:21 AM »
I'm new to the JDM club market. I've been playing for 5 years, all self taught, which you know means it's time for a lesson.

Found my way to Fourteen through my current job in Golf Retail. Was exposed to a set of Fourteen TC-550 and TC-770 that my store took in as Trade-Ins. Prior to that I had come across Fourteen on other Forums and Groups I'm in, but this was the first in-hand exposure I've had.

Current setup is Mizuno MP-15 4i-7i, and Callaway Apex MB '18 8i-Pw with Modus 105 Stiff

After loosing faith in the current setup, and testing the 2009 TC-550, I realized I may be leaving a little on the table with not playing a true CB and that I may also be ignoring the benefits of swapping to graphite.

Currently waiting to assemble a set of FH-900 3i-Pw. Will play 5-P in the 900, and acquired a 4i in the aforementioned TC-550. They will receive Recoil Proto 110s in Stiff, the 4i is getting a 90g Kuro Kage Black, and I'll be retaining my Apex UT 21° with Kuro Kage Silver 80g.

Anyway, I know this is long winded, but I look forward to playing the 14s once the shafts have been paid for and I get the club builder to assemble them.

Next acquisition once the current combo set is sold; I'm thinking about a set of Honma 737s, but haven't decided which model. Maybe someone here can give me some feedback on that particular topic.

This will be the first experience with the KK Black. I had the KK Silver in the UT, and it made a beautiful driving iron. I felt it was a little high and I might get more roll with something a little lower and closer to steel. So I went to Aldila Rip a 105s. That was the stiffest shaft I've ever felt in my life. Much firmer than any X Flex. Went from there to Diamana WB 92g, which was nice for a while, but I still was inconsistent with. Now I'm back to the KK Silver, and the consistency and dispersion is wonderful. Using it off tight tees where I need a little more accuracy and using a Cobra Oversize 3-4 Hyb with Tour AD HY95s where I have a little more room.
