  1. Just to make a few things clear. 1. Mizuno never forged its own clubs. It is done by a separate company in Chuo that specializes in manufacturing train parts. Today the majority has shifted to China. 2. Japan forged clubs are not made like Japanese swords. Please slap anyone who uses the sword thing to market golf clubs. 3. The 2 putters in the images shown in the link are the exact same 2 open model putter designs available for decades. I have no skin in this game, just letting ya fellas know.
  2. These are the same guys who own Vega, Shimada Global, etc.. PGE Europe. They use Kyoei forgings to produce these outside of Japan. Would you like to see these in the proshop?
  3. Yes, that was awesome! I love when he wins! Class act all around AND he has fantastic taste in watches ?
  4. Yes this driver is awesome for kids. There is some wins for a 9 year old girl in Japan actually. some info Geotech sent me:
  5. The Kyoei CB is much easier to hit than the MB. I personally like the proto CB in satin, awesome soft forged feel and just enough forgiveness without adding a lot of size.
  6. Jbeam's drivers are all so similar in performance and feel imo . Subtle differences but the hard part is they do not properly describe them
  7. I used to sell Roddio's woods. All their woods are duds except the fairway woods. One day a client had a part fall out and I could not get it replaced. the club was useless. I gave up because on Roddio because of their unwillingness to support their customers with parts.
  8. Or once people accept it's all fuzz they can buy drivers for their own enjoyment with fewer expectations. I wish more equipment enthusiasts would collect grails.
  9. Hey TK, Soft, forgiving for a blade, a little larger for a blade. VG3 is much more forgiving and just as soft but in a different way. Crazy Sbi-02 isn't all that workable.
  10. Are we really expecting noticeable gains from any new driver? They are all pretty good. TM, Cally, Ping all the others... I could care less if any driver has a few more mph ball speed in the real world. Still gotta hit it well with the right combo to get your best distance. Golf is like Watches... You can tell time with a Timex just as good as you can with a Rolex or AP. It's about getting what you want, enjoying it, the quality, feeling good and standing out. Things in the real are maxed out despite anyone who says otherwise.
  11. I just got back into watches... I would love to make a dedicated watch category right below Japanese Golf Clubs category. What do you guys think?
  12. Ya know, as of today 2019 there are 6 brand new ones in dealers across america... I find that shocking.
  13. Yea it wasn't very entertaining imo. slow until the final holes. Also the guys being mic'd up. I am 99% they are not as stiff in the real. Would love if they could be their authentic selves but then likely they would lose a few sponsers if so.
  14. It's 50 bucks a pound when fresh. On a side note I just say fresh wasabi at 129 bucks a pound the other day!!
  15. Been through a few since then. Mercedes S-Class W222 BMW X5M Now with a family I drive Audi S5 Sport Back Chrysler Pacifica Mini Van ? --- Kinda over cars as I can't keep them clean anymore.
  16. I suggest the ONOFF Kuro 2015 if you can find a mint set used. 2017 is not nearly as forgiving or soft.
  17. We have sold many of these. Any of you guys pick up a set. Similar to Yururi blades but people are loving the reduced offset of the Kyoei's and the 5 cut sole. I love the prototype series. so soft. well both are so soft but just different.
  18. Can't sir but I can get custom grinds and custom finish from Miura MCW Japan. That said I think global stamping looks cleaner and it's hard to improve on the shape and stock specs. Just an FYI all these cutaways and fancy back design do little other than allow a touch more size in different areas.
  19. Epic Forged felt so good! I want more of that! When in Japan this year visiting material suppliers I will get more scoop on SP700. I was told it was toast from a very reliable factory last year and ran with their word. I hope I was wrong but we will see. SP700 has won me over with DAT55G a close second.
  20. Good luck nobs, let me know if u need anything to support you in this goal.
  21. I have every factory in Japan and China at my disposal and I am still not interested in getting into drivers. I would rather focus on feel and shape and have 1-2mph slower ball speeds as with all the variables in golf small numbers don't make a difference on the course. I read on MGS an article that went against " drivers are maxed out ". I disagree and think they are indeed peaked and I don't need to do any independent testing because when the head engineer that actually manages the #1/#2/#3 best selling drivers in the WORLD tells me nothing is moving the needle performance wise I will take his word for it because I am not in his pocket. That said I continue to buy most drivers that look interesting to me. Its fun and my hobby.
