  3. Every now and then I'll get a question from somebody asking why every club in my bag is JDM but my driving iron. And I have to say it's because I've tried everything I could get my hands on and nothing has been able to kick this five year old Cally forged 18-degree prototype out. And while I'll always have a soft spot for the line drive ropes that the Cally has delivered for me over the years, I do believe there is finally a new sheriff in town. I put the 2016 A-Grind CMB 18-degree in my bag this week after Chris shafted it up for me with that new Crazy STP hybrid shaft (that I also LOVE in my A-Grind 23 hybrid...), and wow, this thing is money! Butter soft but tight as the 42nd virgin, it sends out rising line drives both off the tee and the deck. While many JDM driving irons could do one or the other well for me, I never came across one that performed in both areas like the Cally. Until this baby. Long, straight, easy to hit, smooth and smoother in combo with the fabulous new blackout stepped carbon Crazy UT shaft. I used it off the tee on a blind Par 4 at my course, and later on our long finishing Par 5 closing hole whose fairway tilts hard to water on one side, but has an overhanging tree limb up the high side right in the way of a high second shot. Bingo on both! Anyone looking for some new love from a driving iron, I do not hesitate to recommend this setup with the A-Grind. Once again, my huge thanks to Ako-san and Chris for turning me on to his amazing subtle designs. PS. I'll try and post some pics. I was so anxious to get it out to the course and into my bag that I didn't take any.
  4. 3-woods tend to stay in my bag longer than most clubs, even more so than drivers. I just have a hard time settling on one I like and can count on both off the tee and the fairway. It was the last club in my bag to go JDM as I just couldn't let go of a beautiful wine colored TM-R7 (before TM went all white and stupid...), even though discovering JDM had thoroughly changed my game and my bag otherwise. Then along came Kobayashi with his S-Yard XV line, and there was no looking back. Nice soft thwack and unbelievable distance and roll out for me even if the flight was way lower than I was accustomed to. That club has been a solid keeper in my 3-wood slot for as long as it's been out. But then watching as my bag went further and further into A-Grind territory -- everything from irons and wedges to hybrids, and even trying the 440 and Proto drivers -- I finally felt I had to try the DST 3-wood. And whoa, mofo!, am I glad I did! The DST is everything I've loved about the XV -- it's hyper long and delivers precision with that soft thwack I need to hear and feel -- but with one important exception: it flights the ball much higher for me without losing the rollout I so loved with the XV. Beautiful long high arcing shots off the tee have really helped me on one hole on my home course that is a blind tee with a rising hillcrest the first 40 or 50 yards with nothing but an embedded white rock to aim at. Easily up and over with a lazy draw and then past a fairway bunker that sits about 210-220 out on the right side. And also able to lift a shot off a downhill lie on another (too) long Par-4 hole later in the round makes me smile at a shot I just couldn't hit before with anything but a hybrid or an iron (for a layup). And of course that stealth black A-Grind finish that just makes me chill. I don't know how else to put it, but shiny finishes on metal woods just don't do it for me. They look like kids over dressing to make an impression or something... DST is the new 3-wood in my bag. I want to sleep with it at night.

  6. There's a Par 3 hole on my home course that I've always been between clubs on. For years, I'm either short or long off the tee, and if I ever hit the green, the ball would run through. It's a gorgeous hole designed by Billy Bell as a tribute to a Par 3 at Merion (I don't remember the number...). It's severely uphill through a chute of trees, with a deep bunker front left and a 20-foot drop off to a deep rough valley the entire length of the green on the right. It lists on the card at 182, but easily plays 195. And if there is wind -- which there often is down the hill and in your face between the trees near the tee -- it plays just over 200. Oh, and it's a very small green that is blind to your sight from the tee below. Here's a pic taken with my phone (which doesn't do the elevation justice): Well, long story short, I've been trying different clubs on this hole since I joined the club, and have never managed to find a green seeker -- until now. I picked up the A-Grind 5-Util, and I've now stuck shots on the green my last three rounds. I needed something with distance that would go high and land soft. And this thing did the trick! As a util, it has a wonderful click on contact. Some have noted that it looks similar to old Adams hybrids, and while this is true, the description doesn't do justice to the look and feel of this club. The black matte finish gives it a feeling of being a real weapon, and the shape and small size make it play like a fine iron while giving hybrid distance. And it is NOT a hook machine -- my first priority when it comes to hybrids. The only thing it comes close to in my experience is the other hybrid I'd never be without -- my Miura 18-deg HB3. I shafted it with an old favorite, a Matrix Ozik Program 95, and I'm sleeping better at night knowing it's in my bag to pull on #12. Big thumbs up to A-Grind on this club! Some pics below, but I also wanted to mention another winner -- the 56-onset tour wedge. I love this baby, too. It's literally velvety smooth magic out of bunkers, and the onset makes it wonderful from tight lies on fairways and around greens for chipping. Terrific grind and nice solid, click on contact. Lots of controllable spin off the face. For now, it's even knocked my trusty Miura C-grind from the bag. Another thumbs-up to A-Grind!
