  1. Same, M stamp for me. Not a fan of the roadrunner thing.
  2. Wow, this is the best post on here in months! Please elaborate further if you have the time. Specifically how they were able to spine/FLO the shafts as effectively without an SST machine. Great, great post man. Very interesting stuff. Love it.
  3. Ya, who knows. That club builder on GolfWRX, Kwok, uses them with all his builds and people swear by it.
  4. Been reading a lot about inserting wooden dowels into the shafts of your clubs to dampen vibrations. It's supposed to soften the feel of the clubs and make contact more solid. Does anything have experience with this? Is it worth it? Thanks!
  5. No I don't have any, I just read about some guy who does and said they're incredible putters.
  6. Let's hear it!
  7. I came across a thread about Wood Bros putters and the guy had this to say: Some "Wood Bros Bench Mark 60s putters (5 models) - hand forged by Japanese Samurai sword maker. You can see the layers of metal used to make the heads with very close examination. Like persimmon woods, the edges of the multiple layers are stacked up the face of the putter - creating the strongest head and also best feel. There's a discussion of the Japanese sword maker, Mr. Takagi, now near 100 yrs old and still playing golf, who hand made them on Page 9 of my Wood Bros collection thread. Maybe 20 examples of 5 different styles were made. Most sold in Japan and almost never seen. I've been collecting them for 30 years and have bought every one I've ever found. Dave Wood doesn't even own any. BTW - the putters are grooveless faced - don't need grooves - super soft and instant roll off the face. Anyone ever hear about or try one of these?

New this head went for $350 Asking - $49.95 Free Shipping - Continental US Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks guys.
  9. What's your favorite iron?
  10. Has anyone hit these? They're similar to the MP-18 (US model) but they have a copper layer which the US model does not. Let me know if you've hit them.
  11. Heard they're good but basically like everything else. I could be wrong though.
  12. I have the 2015? Type V driver. Other than a slightly closed "looking" face, it's a phenomenal driver. Only other small criticism would be it tends to spin a little too much into a head wind. Long and straight and forgiving though. Had the last model 3 wood too. Long and super forgiving. Spun too much for me though.
  13. For me, Ryoma makes the best combination of distance with forgiveness that I've ever used. There may be longer (not sure what) and there might be more forgiving (not sure what) but I haven't seen anything that has both of these qualities, to this level.
  14. Very nice. Doesn't Seven produce 100% milled wedged too?
