06 is indeed Kyoei made.

Just my opinion but I dont think KZG is being straight up about the S20C.

Not that it matters,  S25C is the same thing.

i actually thought the same thing when i first got into KZG.. about a year ago i wound up with a bunch of single irons of different old forged models of theirs from when they were still made at Kyoei. i spent a lot of time demoing them cuz i was surprised right away how much i liked just about all of them, and i already knew i could acquire a brand new full-set of some of the old Kyoei forged heads for a really good price if i wanted to. the ones i liked the most were the ZO Blades, Tour Evolution's, and Forged Blades, and i wound up buying a set of the Forged Blades cuz i loved them and thought they felt so unique from other mb's i had hit before. KZG only ever portrayed two of their iron models as being made of forged s20c on their website, and they were the Forged Blades and CB-II's. these two models are also the only ones that have the most traditional and weakest lofts (both 48* PW). all of their other forged irons were listed as being made of s25c which is obviously consistent with Kyoei practice, and once they stopped using Kyoei they've since been listing their models as 1025 carbon steel. all other models also have stronger lofts. 

so it's absolutely possible that those two models were either mislabeled on the KZG website or they were straight up lying about the materials, but since they've been so consistent with correctly labeling every other model i can't say for sure. i'm further reinforced to think that they actually may be s20c since i've tried other KZG irons that i know are s25c and i can say with certainty that the Forged Blades and CB-II's have a feeling that is very unique and different from the other models; the Forged Blades are noticeably softer and more forgiving for their size than KZG's other mb's which are much larger, and same with the CB's. 

i clearly can't say for certain one way or the other, but my gut feeling is that they actually are s20c just cuz of how different they feel from every other Kyoei forged s25c iron or wedge i've ever hit. i also used to have VEGA mb's which had a drastically different feeling from these. of course my gut feeling could very easily be mistaken, so who knows

Buchi vs200

oh brother , these are blades .finally got around to grabing  a set from a wonderfull fellow member  and finally got around to shafting one up and finally got to the range for just the3rd time since november. Changed back to interlocking irons  with a semi decent amount of success.

only 5shanks today. Result!!

 

lets just say the power is way way down ,  the theatrics of trying to zing balls willy nilly both ways is a long way off but the accuracy wasnt  so bad really. 

Took a heap of 6 irons to test out with the buchi and im over the moon to report that this is absolutely right at the top of my preferences.

took a big chance  on a set of syb 120s protos, absolutely made for each other .

Perfect  match.

 

had my masda mbs miuraism sb01 honma mbs tourstage maru mb  so it was in esteemed company.

wasnt a matter of held its own so much as is this in fact nicer?

 

suffice to say the set will be done and a new alternative to NS has been found.

oh and as categorising them as cbs is utter folly , they about  cb esque as  a set or srixon 945 s , in fact  i had one there as well and it looked more cb than the buchi.

 

to go with my buchi putter , i think ill have to grab the v200 wedges 

 

Buchi, yup im now a big doctor suess fan!

These Mizuno Pro 118  have copper under lay and these are only sold thru Mizuno Pro fitters shops in Japan.

It's their "in shop only" sales method that they started this year.    Thus, they do not produce them for off the rack retail.

Global retail model is MP -18 and I do not believe those have copper under lay.
