  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. Final price drop before I hand them over to my uncle. Lol
  4. Agree this is a super deal especially given the Roddio i10 shafts! Would be a great set for a mid handicap person looking to make a big dive into JDM irons!
  5. Thanks, Nob. My surgery worked for a few weeks, then the pain came back even worse. I know that happens in a lot of cases, but still it was very dispiriting... Since I had tried virtually everything else I knew of, I was really down until someone put me in touch with a guy doing stem cells here locally. After much thought, I decided to give it a try despite the cost (it's not covered by insurance...), and so far, so good. The pain evaporated very quickly after treatment, and I'm just now beginning to be able to exercise again. Like I said, I have hopes at this point. We'll see where it goes... But I do think stem cells are the future of all kinds of treatments. I'm only sorry that US research was set back by years during the W administration... but that's another story... Anyway, thanks for the good wishes. Always great to read your posts and see what you're up to. Best to you for the holidays. --RL
  6. R, Sorry to hear about your back. my playing buddy also suffered a back problem a couple of years ago. He too had a fusion surgery and after recovery, he is fully back in the game. Will be praying that your stem cell treatment is going to work! I've only read bout stem cell treatment but it seems I'm hearing more and more success stories!
  7. Welcome to the forum! The 1007’s look legit to me.
  8. It happened quite a few times for me the past few months but seems to be working again recently.
  9. Yesterday
  10. Sorry to hear that Bro - praying for a full recovery. Have Faith and never give up!
  11. Yeah, big sighhhhhhhhh... that about says it......... This is the longest I've gone without playing in... 20 years... and I was doing 150+ rounds a year, plus weekends chipping and putting around my backyard green... Always felt like I was doing the Gary Player thing with my fitness routines, etc... But life finds a way to reach us all, doesn't it...? Anyway, like I said above, I have some hope with the latest thing, the stem cells. Reached a point where these beautiful clubs sitting here in my office were doing a little tormenting more than making me smile though. Still not totally sure I want to part with them... <g> Reached kind of a c'est la vie with them the other day, so put them up to see if anyone worthy here wanted to adopt them... ;=]
  12. Thanks, man. Yeah, it's been rough, which from your experience, I can see you understand. Can't even go into all the stuff I've tried and been through -- a lot of it felt like torture... But the latest treatment -- stem cells -- seems to be working. I've been hopeful a couple of other times, so I'm slow to let myself be that now... but I'm... well... hopeful. (And yeah, those A-Grinds... Hard for me to believe I've even put them up here... <g> )
  13. Hey there! I’m a big diy fan and I learned audio and instrument (mostly guitar related) electronics purely from the web starting about 15 years ago- now I own my own music shop. I’ve been getting into swapping shafts, grips, weighting, trying to get into bending, fitting and more shaft Tec stuff like flo. I got back into golf about a year and a half ago and lucikly had a friend into high quality forged clubs. He recommended some Bridgestone j38 dual pocket cavities as a forgiving iron with great feel. I was hooked immediately. that super soft but firm thwack (thwrack, whipcraftck) is all I wanna feel forever. now I’ve gone and bought some mizuno mp37, mg cb 1007s and some hogan apex 98’s and I also won an auction for single 6 iron mb001 just to check it out. I just saw Dhgates listing for miura cb1007s and all the amazing options they offer like you choose the face shape, sole grind, groove milling type, finish, etc etc etc. I know they’re too good be to true. But do you all do counterfeit advice here? I really don’t have much reason to think my cb1007s are fake- the weighting and feel of the club in my hands is so pure. but I haven’t had the chance to hit them much due to the weather and I’d like someone with more experience and knowledge to take a look at em before my return window runs out. id really appreciate it! Also- can anyone give me a size comparison on the Bridgestone J36 combo set and the J40 CB irons? I have the j38dpc to compare as well as the irons I just mentioned. i really like the looks of the combo j36 set as well as the j40. The j40 looks like the sole is a bit thick for me but maybe it’s just the length of the blade. I’d be really interested to see a collection of number measurements on jdm (or mij “made in Japan” as they say in the guitar world) clubs. And I’d be happy to contribute to it. Does such a compilation of data exist? I think that’d be really cool to have available- a standardized method of measuring all of these club heads we so covet. Measuring blade length, sole width, offset, top line thickness, hosel length. Probably really difficult to standardize. But a thread of comparison measurements and pics of peoples collections would be super cool! Anyone else interested in contributing? thanks for having me and thanks to those That read this super long post with ideas (probably old ones) from a Newbie Glad to be here! ive attached pictures of my 1007 6 and 9 irons. Lemme know if I can send anymore details. I’ve only been able to hit a few range balls out of my backyard in 40 degree temps and I haven’t really been able to pure one and know by the feeling.
  14. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh buddy.... thats some horrible news. I feel your pain , ive been contemplating my situation as well ,while not as advanced as yours I have to make some tough decisions soon as well . alas life marches on those a-grinds........................that as good as ive seen. such a tragedy.
  15. ha, yea rember that game, and yes it is on the louder side . it.certainly.goes tho.
  16. Dang sorry to hear about the back. I had C6-7 fused with micro surgery ten years ago then retired five years later and took up golf after laying off in ‘93. So in time I’m hopeful you get back in some form. GLWS I’m smitten over the Agrind
  17. I’m guessing there is some connection to the bots trying to hock prescription medicines. Here’s hopping it gets sorted. I’m not a robot
  18. I personally saw this thing in action on the 17th at terry hills, calls for a demanding accurate tee shot from memory Stu said puts a little draw every time and bang! Little draw super long into the spot! Loud but good!
  19. This was designed with the original shaft as a driver /fw alternate combo. It is very hittable from the deck as it is from a tee. super hyten (kasco prop steel) sounds and looks like aluminium but crushes the ball, this is a loud driver. reshafted professionally with a diamana stinger 70 x which is the best combo ive had in the 6 or so of these ive hadover the years I had this one made for a short driver on short ,tricky pete dye courses where accuracy is paramount over distance ,more so than as a farway wood . it can be hit from the deck no problems but as the shaft is 100% boron , mid kick and is very tight, it doesnt get airborn quite like it does with low kick shaft. so I never used it as one, it does not like to be moved laterally very much , its point shoot. Distance is somewhere like 15-20 yards shorter than my driver as a rule into the wind but with it I can get equality more often than not. Reliability to get it down the middle makes up for the distance loss, especially where acccuaracy is at a premium. ive tried so many option for a driver alt as most know here, this one has clearly been the best,, clearly. put a thinner DWD grip on it instead of my usual cadero and it was great so I didn't change it . Selling bec I have 3.............................. and I don't need 3 any more. $450 obo tracked shipped insured delivered
  20. Last week

  24. Hi, guys, been a while, but after a year and a half of trying everything from physical therapy to surgery to heal herniated discs in my lower back, it's time for me to admit I may not get back to fully appreciate my carefully curated collection of JDM clubs...

As always, you can see I spared nothing in assembling these, and I assure they're in top notch condition -- in fact, barely played. Enjoy!
