    Kyoei MB (4-Pw) & Epon AF Tour MB (ALL SOLD)

    Wow awesome gear. Glws
  2. Totally agree with both your comments about this set, which are seriously amazing and you probably have them listed for half what just the shafts are worth, and the other members on here who frequent the BST, I've also bought a whole bunch of clubs from some of you guys and you're all great fellas. Yup, same boat for me. I've already gotten so many great clubs and deals from the BST I've never been more pleased with my setup. Spot on
  3. Very very true.. much love for the scandinavians, just not much practical golf equipment knowledge floating around the USA anymore, aside from the handful of people who regularly buy and sell on here. I still find it hard to not make an offer on such a nice set as these, even though I already have an extra set of my own iron heads, if I were in the market you'd have already shipped these to me

    Seven putter.....sm490A

    Definitely nice to finally see a review for the Kyuzo on here.. always thought it looked terrific but no one ever wrote anything up from personal experience. I have a Seven Limited SH and I must agree with your opinion of the sm490a material, very appealing and unique feeling.

    SP700 face drivers

    looking for a list of good JDM drivers that have SP700 face material. let's see what you've got

    Wedge shaft preferences

    I'm quite partial to the HW120's also, the other wedge shafts I'm currently using are the PRGR SSIII's in my iD Nabla Tour wedges, which are really a 110ish gram high kick wedge shaft made for PRGR by Nippon. I very much like both of them. The HW120 is very stout with great tight dispersion, and I have no issue getting plenty of spin with them; their biggest stand out feature I feel like is the OD at the butt-end feels a bit wider. The PRGRs/Nippons are a smidge lighter and veeeeeeeery smooth but they also feel plenty stout for my liking, and they spin like a mofo and the dispersion is also extremely tight. Aside from them, although I'm not using any right now I very much like all the Dynamic Gold wedge shafts I've used, and I also highly recommend the Tour Issue Wedges and X100s, plus the black onyx ones look really cool.

    SP700 face drivers

    I like to think that I have a pretty good collection of quality clubs... but I always get jealous when I read your newest gear posts. I've very much wanted to get my hands on one of the MA01D+R's and either a Romaro '17 Type R or a '16 Ray V , and I really like my RS-001 with DAT55G but the new RS-D with SP700 looks aaaaaawesome. Also, by the way, the MP-Craft you gave me is still working out fantastically, and you were spot-on in every way you described it. I'm having no trouble with the 9.5* loft, it really doesn't look like a 9.5 at address so I have plenty of confidence with just putting a good swing on it. Love the shape and profile. And the performance.. well, as you know, seems second to none

    The Jbeam bullet driver - finally!

    That's a solid idea, i never thought of it. I love the feel of my ZY-11 which is Factory foamed, I never thought of this easy way to not only get a similar result, but also add some usually needed weight to the club head. Consider your idea borrowed..

    PRGR 2018

    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?

    PRGR 2018

    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)
  13. 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
  17. 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
