  1. Oh.. and Fujikura Speeder Evolution II or IV or VI ( the even numbered versions ) are considered mid-low launch, low launch as well. They use very advanced high grade material with the Speeder Evolution Series. Speeder Evo shafts are typically more friendlier and smoother feeling that the Fujikura USA products like the ATMOS and Ventus. Forgot to mention Graphite Design Tour AD BB, GP and the newer XC are all low-mid launch / low spin shafts as well. Then there are the boutique JDM brands and the list goes on and on....
  2. If you have slicey shots, I think using a low spin low launch shaft will only exacerbate the slice. To drop the spin, draw shots are most effective. Perhaps trying a more draw biased head can help with your slice and may even help drop your spin. Having said that, there are many Low/Low shafts available today. lately I have had very good luck with Fujikura Low/Low shafts. ATMOS TS Black is my current gamer. Fujikura Speeder TR are very good Low/Low shaft as well. My latest experiment was Ventus Black but it was a 60 Stiff but I want to use 50g range in my driver so I will
  3. Looks so cool!! Do let us know how they play!!
  4. I think the base heads are all the same. But I do see slightly different advertised specs, loft availability, swing weight, stock weight screw etc... none of which are of a concern for me since I'd swap out shafts and fiddle with weights and hosel settings anyway. While I have not seen one yet, based on previous Cally models. I would not be surprised if a bonded hosel "star" version is released for Japan. On the other hand, I doubt that they would come out with another Epic Forged but who knows!
  5. Grandista FW & Speeder TR shaft - SOLD Buchi SP-301 heads and Mizuno MP-66 irons - SOLD
  6. Sorry Hutchy, did not mean to divert off topic. I do want to try the MP20 HMB made of forged Cromoly. Long time ago I used to have these SYB wedges that were made of Cromoly and really like it. They felt as good as any carbon steel head. I think Fourteen also used Cromoly with many of their previous wedges. More recently, Yamaha RMX 120 then the MP-20 HMB as well as JPX 921 Forged. Supposedly, Cromoly provides distance gains without sacrificing too much feel of carbon steel forged irons. I'd rather try one piece Cromoly forged over steel + forged multi material
  7. Currently, I am using Project X LZ 5.5 but I also do well with the Modus 105 Stiff. By the time I decide to use the MP-33 set, I might need to drop a flex on these shafts. I also currently use NS950GH Stiff which I feel are one of the best shafts that Nippon has released. Winter golf is easier with the 950GH. I tried the 950GH Neo recently but I think the originals felt better overall.
  8. I've tried them during my iron shaft fitting . Like any other Mizunos they felt great ... I used the MMC model and they did have a touch of offset. I know they've used copper underlay in these but honestly could not tell if they were or not. Eventually, when I have nothing else to tinker with, I will start using the Yoro MP-33s that I have stashed away! Perhaps I will need to reshaft when I am ready as they currently have NS1150GH Stiff in them. (too sturdy)

  12. Yup... as you say, I am going to tinker wit the set ups. that's what I do! Irons and wedges are pretty much set for the moment. Not sure about woods.
  13. We have a Winter Tourney series going at my course and today was the 2 man best ball event and I ended up shooting my all time low of 70 !! 36/34 5 Birdies / 3 Bogies Wooooohooooooo!!!! As a team, me and my 75 yr young partner shot 4 under 68 (gross). Maybe good enough for placing. we'll find out next week. I set an ambitious goal of trying to shoot sub-70 in 2021 and I came very close to doing so today!! And it's still only January!! Had a couple of 15 footers go in the hole today which helped a lot. I wish I could putt like this all the time!! Putter w
  14. The black limited edition looks nice, but not sure why they didn't do the logo in the signature red!! would have looked much better. Gonna wait for the normal version.
  15. you have the new Tour 115? or the 115 Wedge?
  16. From what I read thus far, the new Modus 115s are of the 105, 125 family with high kick point. The raw weight of 115 is actually heavier than the Modus 120, which is somewhat confusing, but I would expect the 115 to perform midway between the 105 and 125 in terms of trajectory and spin. When I got fitted with the Project X LZ 5.5, the other shaft that performed similarly well was the Modus 105 S. However, Modus 105 S felt a bit too light for me and a bit too high trajectory. I'll need to try these 115s as they should fit me well. The only thing I am not impressed wth the PX
  17. My understanding is that the IO is the successor to the PXi. I am currently fit into the LZ which is middle of the range fits the broadest swing profile. The IO as you would know are designed to produce higher launch with some added back spin compared to the LZ. Love the new brushed finish of the LS and IO. Those Satin DOA heads will match perfectly with the IOs.
  18. JBeam Bullet was supposedly designed with lessening the effects of mis hits on the toe. The CG location is slightly biased towards the toe side. They said strikes on the toe were less likely to end up in a hook and distance not compromised. Having said that, from my personal experience, different shafts provide different striking patterns on the face. For me, a shaft with stiffer tip and low torque usually helps me strike the ball more consistently at the middle of the face. Shafts that have active (or softer) tip section, I end up hitting the toe sectio
  19. I actually don't know what they use for stock. But I recommend Shimada's stepless (NSTP) series with .370 tip. They are clean looking thanks to the stepless design and very high quality. Benock uses them for their stock. (NSTP-120)
  20. I hope everyone is enjoying Christmas day safely where ever you might be!! 2020 has certainly been different and challenging and even devastating for many. I'd say my family were one of the lucky ones where I still had a steady job and my wife and daughter continued to work as essential workers. Golf in the U.S. saw a huge uptick in the number of rounds played this year. That's a good thing for the golf community. Apparently, the only other year that had a bigger surge was 1997 when Tiger came into the golf scene! In any case, I am really hoping and praying that w
  21. That's not how it works buddy. You need to include a piece of paper with name and date within the picture as proof that you actually possess the items that you are trying to sell.
