Where did you buy that 4 iron? I am looking for the same model. Having a hard time finding just the single 4 iron. Thanks.
Holy /censored2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':censored2:' /> !!!! It came out amazing!! Byron is the man! Great decisions on everything, shape, alignment, stamping, it all looks so good. /drinks.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':drinks:' />
both your Byrons are freaking incredible man, wow
How do you like the steel fiber in the h4? And on a somewhat unrelated note, do you have any issues hitting the h4s off the deck. May seem like a silly question but I love my 21* of a tee but the turf interaction leaves something to be desired
Nice setup and great pics. You can tell you have good taste and went for top performance in every category.
How do you like those FW's?
Mikey, just wondering how that finish is holding up. I thought you mentioned that over time it may change slightly?

Well... the woods now have an evening appointment with my club fitter/builder two days from now.
Here is what's on the "to do" list:
I picked it up on the BST and put it straight in the bag without any adjustments. It's been good, but it's going in for the "piece of mind" adjustments (i.e. CPM and spine align shaft, swing weight match, new grip, etc...). It just needs a bit of love that it hasn't been given yet.
The Fubuki Tour 73 Stiff feels just a bit loose. I have the X-Stiff version of this shaft in the 5 Wood and really like the added stability. That said, I do like the ball flight I'm getting out of the 3 Wood with the Stiff shaft, so I'm a bit leery of changing that. To try to find a happy compromise, the current Stiff will be tipped an inch. From what my fitter/builder said, the shaft already CPMs close to the Stiff+ range, so the tipping should give me the extra stability that I'm looking for, while retaining many of the launch and ball flight characteristics that I like.
Lately, I've had the desire to flatten my ball flight a bit. I usually play on fairways that are pretty firm, so I'd like to take advantage of that. It would be nice to more easily hit drives through the wind, as well. I recently went through a full SLDR fitting to see if I could accomplish this with a new club... to no avail. The SLDR was good, but I was getting better ball speed numbers, and better dispersion, out of my Amp Cell Pro. After I was re-sold on my current head, I look to the shaft. I called my fitter/builder and he said that he had just the thing for me. The Kuro Kage is coming out, and the big stick is getting a new engine. Enter: Fubuki Alpha 63 X. I'm really looking forward to seeing what changes this shaft will make to my ball flight. Profile wise, it should fit the bill... we shall see.
I'll update with impressions after I can get a couple range sessions under my belt with the new additions and changes.
Wow mike not sure how I missed your WITB. Some fine stuff you have there. I can also appreciate the pics.
Wait, why steelfibers in just the 2-4irons?

Update - 4/7/14
I shipped the MP-69s and MP-H4s to The Iron Factory this weekend. They will be refinished in their "Tour Chrome Satin." Before boxing up the H4s, I took the stickers out of the cavities and requested that they be refinished just like any other forged Mizuno cavity (think MP-64).
I'm really looking forward to seeing how these turn out. When I bought the irons from the BST they had about a dozen rounds on them. Recently, I've been getting the itch for new clubs, but I like these way too much. The happy compromise was to go with a refinish... same great irons... and now I'll get to have them as brand new, with a nice brushed chrome finish.
I'll update with photos as soon as they get back from their makeover.
Sounds sweet. Looking to build my own H4 2i with Steelfiber after thinking about your set up
