  1. Honma TW727/TW737 much difference?

    I'd probably actually consider the 737s a slight downgrade, considering the faces of most 727 drivers were Endo forged. However, I do like the 737c wood in comparison to the 727 wood, but I'd take a 717 wood over either of them any day in my opinion
  2. WTB S-Yard Bold 56*

    looking for an S-Yard Bold 56* wedge, with the caveat that it's in really good condition. it can be head only or full wedge. I'm looking for one to replace the one I already have since the other two in that set are still basically brand new, but the 56* got more use for a while and isn't in as good shape, but is still very playable. so I'm only looking for one in better condition than the one I have which I'd say is still prob like an 8ish/10
  3. Bulk stuff pics up more gear

    that Epon bag is gorgeous.. I do not think I'll ever have the disposable funds to purchase it but I very much wish I could or I would in a heartbeat hah GLWS
  4. Quietly waiting for the release of this!

    Looks pretty cool, although I like the look of the regular LS-001 more.. but I'll always bow to the knowledge of the Grandista guys because I absolutely love their gear. The RS-001 and RS-F are both a couple of my favorites in each of their categories, love every single thing about them including distance and control
  5. Putting Aids

    ya i actually game my SeeMore TourFGP a lot, especially when I'm having putting problems. that's one club i'll never ever let go of
  6. Putting Aids

    I don't want to advertise for other companies on here.. but SeeMore has a great putter aid for alignment (which is their specialty) and getting the ball rolling along your desired line: http://www.seemore.com/accessories/triangulator.html I have one, and if you take the time to go to the green and practice it's a fantastic accessory to have, and for only $10
  7. Tyson Lamb

    +1.. I prefer Chris' bias for the most part since it makes for more interesting and informative reading. Must be nice to have such great 20/20 hindsight to bash him for something like Itobori; I've read some similarly revealing things about Honma but they seem to retain a pretty good relationship. This site is like 20 years old, how many fly-by brands has he probably seen during that time? Sorry to hear you went and bought a set of itobori irons right after the original marketing blog post then found out later they weren't as great as was originally claimed, but that makes you salty not Chris a liar. I'm actually pretty appreciative of being able to come on here and find info i most likely won't get anywhere else, and can sympathize that some of this info most likely took some time to determine since I also do not learn by osmosis. With regard to hyping Benock and SEVEN, I have found zero information anywhere that leads me to doubt any of what he's said about these brands and i've done my homework, totally different than itobori, and I wasn't around on here during the Scratch/Epon days but both of those companies have obviously undergone serious changes over time, so what was once said about them may no longer be true after such changes and for someone to hold him accountable NOW for what was written/said BEFORE those changes.. it's hard for me to comprehend that kind of illogical thinking
  8. Miura MC-501 / IC-601 / MG-S01 Tour

    ...also CB57, even tho that wasn't a Miura Giken model

    ugh I want a set so badly.. only irons I would swap my current ones for
  10. Miura MC-501 / IC-601 / MG-S01 Tour

    the wedge looks great so for the MC-501 it sounds like they'll be pretty much like a version of the 5005 that's a little easier to hit because of the 21g of extra weight in the sole due to its width? if so then despite their goofy look they could turn out to be a performer. will love to see if these make it into any of the iron comparison articles from like GolfWRX since Miura was bought or rebranded or whatever also, is the IC-601 supposed to be like a T-MB or something?
  11. Vega RAD-04 head only

    any offers for driver head?
  12. Vega RAD-04 head only

    Selling mint condition VEGA 11* RAD-04 driver head. one-piece forged body, heat treated 6-4Ti face, interchangeable weight. -RAD-04 driver 11* shipped (USA) - $200 or best offer
  13. SOLD

    wow that's a tough choice.. AF-Tour CB's with Monacos or 1008's with Shimada Tours? I tend to prefer one-piece heads so I'd keep AF-Tour, but the 1008 is obviously a top-notch iron. Good luck with that decision hah
  14. Benock Patnaleone putter $300 + shipping

    I'd love to see what this putter looks like at address
  15. SOLD

    beauties.. just gorgeous
  16. j-beam driver heads......,

    no kidding?!? you got to sample ALL those jBEAM driver heads we've been talking about and the original 435 is still your #1? that's pretty cool to be honest with you i know some players don't get along well with the 435, but even though I've never had the privilege of trying one I always thought it seems like one of the best-designed driver heads around. I'm a lover of DAT55G so that's right up my alley so was this new Bullet one of the heads you tried? what did you think of that thing?
  17. New Orion Irons

    have you ever hit the other ones, the Tsubame's?
  18. New Orion Irons

    That's wise advice.. I would actually swap them in and remove the AF-Tour's. ..in addition I'll also add the Crazy CRZ Muscle as an honorable mention, or make it #6
  19. New Orion Irons

    I couldn't agree more, they're on my list of top 3 MBs: 1. Seven x Shinagawa 2. Orion Himeji x Tsubame 3. Mystery MC-10 CR 4. Yamaha RMX 018 Tourmodel 5. Epon AF-Tour MB
  20. j-beam driver heads......,

    if you're using a 60TX plus at 44.5" you should've increased the swing weight to around a D4-D5, would've definitely helped with the ultra low launch and with indexing the club head throughout your swing. I also much prefer hot melt to lead tape with wood heads
  21. VA Composites

    In a heartbeat.. GD is my go to, can't go wrong
  22. Itobori at it again - please hold brands accountable

    They'll get no business from me, that's for sure
  23. j-beam driver heads......,

    I've also fallen in love with the factory foamed head for the zy-11. if it's something you might like i'd recommend giving it a shot
  24. MyGolfSpy Japan & Korea

    I like some of their detailed club comparisons and the data they get from them, but they very rarely ever do one on a club or clubs that I'm remotely interested in. i'll be pleased and interested to see if they start doing the same thing for the popular JDM clubs that we find on this wonderful website. that i'd be interested in
