    Check out the New BB4 Driver!

    yes, all due respect to our beloved reviewer - and we do love him - it just needs anyone who has hit the club to spend 10mins and give us a quick idea if this thing is any good or not. If you want to go into more depth with photos etc - do that later. Meanwhile, we are all needing some practical info that might sway us either way with this bad boy.
  2. We can see new stuff from PRGR in the shop - mostly driver heads - and will be interesting to read about their technology...... no doubt offering us new drivers that go further and straighter then ever before. The 'basic' translation sure needs to be explained better.

    YAMAHA UD+2

    just tried the driver and it feels good - hits it long as promised, but I'd not recommend to players who draw the ball. This driver has quite a closed face, almost off-set, and it is a true slice-fighter. I generally fade the ball and found that more difficult to achieve with this driver. But there are a lot of players who fight the right-hand side of the course -- so this is well worth trying for you people. I tried both the stock shaft and also the newest UST in a stiff at 65g, which was firmer than the stock offering and helped with control.

    YAMAHA UD+2

    New versions of these being shown on the NEW ITEMS and if you need long irons - these and the Ping i500's are going to ring your bell. The +2 in the name is Yamaha's way of saying they are 2 clubs longer - and when I hit the previous model I'd agree with that. They felt good and they went a 'mile' -- but I couldn't quite get used to the Kim Kardashian-backside of the irons.....just stuck out too much. Yamaha are saying the new versions have addressed that issue to some extent, although the photos still suggest you get plenty of junk in the trunk. And besides, having a 7 iron that goes like a 5 iron is not what I'm after. Screws up all your established thoughts and numbers. Not a fan of jacked-up lofts period. But these will appeal to people needing simple and long - but they are not cheap. Not tried the driver or FW/UT but will be looking into them.

    nothing beats a benock

    If you have the money, why not indulge yourself. I want to be buried with my putter - but it will be selected by me ahead of time because if they buried with me with all of my putters, they'd need an industrial-sized smelter.

    one of many putters I own - they are really good, but most will find them overpriced.

    MARUMAN SHUTTLE UTILITY FAIRWAY WOOD

    I have the FW and Hybrids of these and they are easy to hit and feel really good - plenty of distance. They are a touch shut so drawing the ball is overly simple. And I just read where Maruman is expanding into the US market very soon with plans to have their products more readily available to that market.

    DA faq is going on here!!!

    I've got a stack of gear too but am just too lazy to photograph it and then post it. Sadly that is the only way you will sell it. I'm expecting the wife will have one helluva garage sale upon my passing.

    Ryoma’s New Irons

    RYOMA website still does not even mention the irons -- poor marketing strategy!!

    DA faq is going on here!!!

    buyers from outside of Japan really need as much information as possible - even though all reviews are quite subjective of course. I'd like to see videos posted of testing new gear and a couple of guys like Chris discussing looks - feel - performance etc. This means a lot of extra work for someone - but it would lead to more sales I believe and certainly help most of us who are often buying gear based on reputation or one person's views. I'm a prolific buyer of Japanese products but have ended up with plenty of gear I wish I had not spent the money on - gear that ends up sitting in my garage because I'm too lazy to chase up buyers. Good reviews will not eliminate that issue, but it would help.

    #3 irons are like considerate teenagers these days -- they don't exist.

    Ryoma Irons

    There's just no accounting for taste. And unattractive women are grateful for that. Meanwhile, I only care if irons feel good and make the game more fun. So if these ticked those boxes I'd play them -- even if they had all the eye appeal of Shanshan Feng in a bikini.

    Ryoma Irons

    As soon as someone gets to hit these please advise on the FEEL. Their driver I play has a great feel/sound (to me) and just hoping these irons follow suit. Of course feel is subjective, but if the irons have that great soft... yet solid.... feel they will find a lot of owners.

    new items

    Starting to see lots of new offerings on the TSG website and that always tweaks our (JDM-loving) interest, but when Chris and the team find some time it would help if we could get some more informative translations on what these new shafts, irons, drivers etc are touting. Some of the gems on recent products... Even if the swing is disturbed, we have the function "Face naturally returns to SQUE" if a single player who fell a little distance away with age may get back that shot five years ago. "excellent control performance, stickiness" of the steel shaft at high level Yes we can work out roughly what they are trying to tell us but not to the point where you would be comfortable buying into the supposed new technologies...
