    All of the of new PRGR gear was officially released to the market yesterday so hopefully it won't be long before we start getting some further news and feedback.

    I would have expected the FORGED model to be more expensive, but this is not the case?

    PRGR 2018

    PRGR has new gear coming out in the next week or two - interested to know more about these offerings....more than the quick description appearing in the new items segment - roughly translated.
  6. Hit the new offerings last week and they do feel very good. The new SGI clubs are clearly on the 'chunky' side but these are clubs that would suit people struggling to get solid contact with irons and particularly anyone needing to get the ball up higher. I own the original PXG irons and while I like the new range, not going to race out and upgrade just now. Can say I tried the KBS TGI shafts during my testing and these were good enough for me to now be looking to change into them.

    Japan gear is the best - period! I'm an owner of many of their products -- plus I also have PXG and they live up to the hype in my opinion - if you are prepared to meet their price point, which is comparable to much of the good JDM equipment. The key for me is to ensure the Japan products are modified to suit me - something all buyers should be aware of. Many off-the-rack Japan drivers I found to be too light - but this is easily rectified. And you have to wonder where to next for the manufacturers - they've gone down so many roads trying to make the gear better. I'm wondering if the next big thing in design could be the head materials themselves or the inner-fillers - is there something coming to really stir interest?
  9. I found some good drivers from Japan with extremely closed face appearance - takes a little getting used to. A former version of the TM Gloire was so closed I couldn't game it. And my Maruman Royal Black is nit far behind - but I keep it in the bag because it is so easy to hit. About to get a JBeam similar to what is described here and will be checking that face appearance closely.

    the only thing ridiculous was the attempt at spelling that word. Nevertheless, most Japan-produced golf equipment scholars would testify that the market is aimed at the local golfers- as it should be of course - and the majority of Japanese players are slower swingers and tend to be over-50. I am neither - but like many of the buyers on this forum we simply tweak/custom the top quality products to best suit our own needs......so keep it coming!

    one might tend to feel most of the Japan gear is aimed at the slower swingers or the youth-challenged....
