  1. I was looking at Itobori website today and based on the translation it says TSG is selling fake Itobori products? https://www.itobori.com/新規ページ/ perhaps retaliation for exposing them?

    Made in Japan by SAKATA ( 50 reasons )

    Honma should be transparent and rename the stamp to "assembled in Sakata, Japan". Apple does the same "Designed in California, assembled in China" and it doesn't impact their sales one bit. At the end of the day golf club heads are made by machines, not hand forged, so a well trained machinist will be the same in china or japan. Personally I do not have an issue where the parts are manufactured as long as they meet stringent standards/tolerances. Clubmaking, however, is where the difference lies. The assembly and grinding/finishing of the club makes a huge difference and that's where i would be willing to pay a bit more. But i agree with the overall sentiment about JDM branding - if the club is not 100% made in Japan they cannot say it because consumers pays a premium for it. Having said that I still love my TW717 driver, 717MBs and TW-U. They are a quality product regardless if where it was made.

  4. we will always have a part of our game that we atruggle with, and there are always solutions - that's why we keep more than 14 clubs to give ourselves options =) I'm originally from Richmond and my wife's folks live near langara. whenever I'm back visiting that's or McCleeey is usually where I go for a quick round in the morning. Will need to check out Morgan Creek next time!
  5. great bag! very sensible setup with a lot of thoughts put in. with all the hybrid and FW options you have I see why you are selling the F5. BTW nice Eagle! Which course is this?

    Jdm golf stand bag

    beautiful bags! I think if your wife keeps the miura iron covers on, then it doesn't matter if her irons are miura =)

    Recommend a 6 hybrid please

    I used to game the AGrind 18* so I know what you mean by wanting a 6-hybrid in similar size/shape - it's got the forgiveness of hybrids with the accuracy of irons The closest thing to a 6-hybrid i've tried is the Yamaha UD+2 (8 iron = 29* loft). It's a really strong lofted hybrid-iron and it was very easy to hit high, soft landing shots (on the indoor simulator anyways). http://global.golf.yamaha.com/en/products/iron/rmx_ud2/

    My Benock Mallet

    that looks awesome! very classy, clean lines! Love the SEVEN logo integrated into the sightline... Replace BENOCK with SEVEN and it'll look even better! Does the "slot" on the sole do anything?
