    so the new wedge is not from Endo, even though it's s20c and has he same face mill as the ID nabla Tour's from a few years ago that were Endo forged?

    I'd love to know if the new wedge is Endo forged like the older ones; it's s20c and has the same face milling pattern, so if they are then I'd be very interested to check them out (even though 10* bounce on the 58* is a bit too high)
  3. If I had the disposable funds at the moment I'd snag these beauties up in a heartbeat without hesitation. They look to be in phenomenal condition and you are 100% correct they're about as high quality an iron as you can get. Ughhhh I even even already have a full matching wedge set.. 52/56/58/60(bent)

    Club build spec

    Yes, the increase in length most likely accounts for the higher sw's. also, the stiffer his shafts are supposed to be the higher the sw's should be as well to compensate.

    brilliant putter shafts!

    I would be very interested to hear some of those pros/cons of carbon vs steel and stepless vs stepped putter shafts and their weight, with regard to the type of head and/or stroke

    driver face material

    That's for their newer models, older ones like the 435/425 were DAT55G I believe
  7. still available? if so pm me

    driver face material

    I'll be interested to discover the answers for each of the other heads as well...

    driver face material

    jBEAM 435 and 425 are DAT55G if I'm not mistaken... but I easily could be

    SP700 face drivers

    Ya when I started this thread I wasn't expecting it to take-off so much.. I'm happy it did though because I think it's generating a lot of quality info

    SP700 face drivers

    The first and most important thing I'd recommend worrying about is making sure your swing weight is spot-on... I see you're playing it with a AAA shaft, which should be pretty stout and a straight/low shooter, so I'd suggest (if you have the ability) that you have the club frequency measured with the head on, and then add weight to the head to get it around a D3-D4 (depending how high the frequency is). My experience with all the JDM driver heads I've had (so far) is that their stock weight is typically too low, usually around 200g, and I've personally also been fit into stout and low launching shafts, which necessitates that I add weight to the heads when building the clubs to compensate for the higher cpm of my shafts. Example: I'm fit to a 7.2 driver shaft frequency, which is around mid-range of x-stiff, and my driver builds are usually D5-D5.5 at 45", approx. 209-211g head weight, always standard l/l/l because I'm not a fan of adjustable hosels. If you play your driver at a longer length then maybe you don't need to add weight because SW increases as shaft length increases, but believe me when I say that proper length and SW make all the difference in the world. JDM driver heads I've had: Grandista RS-001, Epon AF-105, jBEAM ZY-11, Mizuno '15 MP Craft, Vega RAD-04, Fourteen GelongD CT-214; the only one of them I was able to get to the proper SW using only weights and no hot melt is the ZY-11, and only because I got lucky that there's spots for three 8g weights since I didn't have much choice being that it's factory foamed so, in short, swapping the weight positions might help get better results by compensating for certain faults in your swing, and there's nothing wrong with that at all.. but unless your club has a proper SW then it doesn't make much difference because it's much more difficult to put a consistent swing on the ball, and thus you could start dealing with inconsistent misses

    User "marmaduk" has a mint set listed on the BST right now. I was eyeing them myself but decided I'm more than content with my current irons
