  1. 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.

    damm -- but things never stop evolving and let's hope we are pleasantly surprised in years to come.

    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?
  4. 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....

    China makes good noodles - but when it comes to metals, they suck.
  8. I want JDM adjustable driver suggestions

    New VG3 is excellent

  11. i tested them and thought they were quite good but ended up buying the TM 790s - and can say I'm loving them.

    you really should try to swing these models before you buy - because it is all so subjective. I play the forged irons because I like the softer feel. If I was trying to help a high handicapper - I'd say the 9's would be a winner. They look so big it should inspire confidence - but would not appeal to the better players who like a thinner topline and smaller footprint overall. So if you just want to throw the club at the ball and get a decent result - the 9's. If feel is more important the forged offering might be a better way to go.
  15. XXIO

    The XXIO irons are generally always good -- a little clunky looking...but they are designed more along the lines of slower swingers and people looking for easy-to-hit equipment. I've played XXIO for many years and they rarely disappoint. Have tried every new option when they appear and while I like the latest offering - didn't really notice a massive difference to the previous model. Forged feel better - and still forgiving enough unless you are a 20+ hacker.
