  1. I was going to chime in on the J-Spec Tour G's but chicolax2 beat me to the punch. Really good grips that really are the best of both worlds. I don't wear a glove, so the bottom hand has enough grip to keep the club from slipping and the right hand feels good. Not super tacky, but not slick either. From what I understand the grip is designed by Jumbo Ozaki, thus the J-Spec name. Lately I have been gravitating towards grips with spines (Align, Calibrate) for my irons, but like the J-Spec for clubs with adjustable sleeves since the spine doesn't change with the orientation of the shaft.
  2. A couple of years back I asked a Callaway Japan rep about the differences between JDM vs US version if the same club and he said the biggest differences was that the tolerances are tighter in Japan (stated vs actual loft, weight, etc) based on the expectations from the market as a whole. Also the stock shaft options can be different. For example the Tisi in the US have a greater number of no charge stock shaft options than in Japan where they only have two options (one a 40 gram and the other a 50 gram shaft). Because of this there are a lot of companies importing clubs from the US.
  3. No worries. The more I think about it, I don’t think it’s entirely fair to try to compare the two sets, despite sharing the same name, since they are drastically different designs and concepts. I think OnOff wanted to dip their toe into the hollow body player’s category and did a good job, but for whatever reason they aren’t perfect for me. Perhaps a shaft change may be in order since the heads do feel a bit on the heavy side and I have them in the Modus 125 shafts. May go Modus 115 in them if I keep them around for next season.
  4. I haven’t hit the 2015 Kuros, but have gamed the 2020 for most of this year. Pros: They look awesome. A bit chunkier top line than blades, but not off putting at all. Despite the stronger lofts, they are easy to launch. Forgiving on mishits and not too punishing when strike location goes awry. Balls tend to go straight without a lot of curve. Feel is there despite the hollow body design. Cons: Pricey. Stock set is 6i through PW and 5 iron and up is extra. Not easy to work the ball since the ball just wants to go straight. Haven’t played in a lot of wind, but the ball flight is a bit high and not easy to keep low and underneath it. Inconsistency in distance control. Get the occasional hot and low spiny one that goes quite a ways when flushed. I like them, but not in love with them as I was with my Legacy Blacks. I keep hoping that things will click with them, but after 20 rounds with them, I may go a different direction next season.
  5. You can probably get a G400 lst for cheap, the performance difference is small compared with the G410 and the up side is that you can use the same shaft as the G30..
  6. Next month they are releasing a limited edition Modus 115 shaft (2000 sets) to fall in line with the 105 and 125 shafts. Looking at the ei curve, it’s a little stiffer in the tip and butt section than the 105 but with a similar mid section. Weight (uncut) is 118 grams in S flex and 119 in the X flex.
  7. I was going to say the same. From looks, feel, forgiveness and accuracy the Stenson Legacy Black irons are special and are the best imho.
  8. Every time I see the 7MCs they remind me of these Japan only 2009 TP Forged irons.
  9. Only have 2 rounds in with it, but so far so good with the Cobra Speedzone Xtreme 9* with a Diamana ZF 70 X. Really liking the stability of the ZF shaft!
  10. The Tour Issue 2016 M2 HL is the best I have hit. Great sound and feel. Extremely versatile and long.
  11. Do they not like money? Seems like a no brainer to me, but it may be a materials issue and the limitations of the qpq process. For sure, I would buy a set in a heartbeat if they came out with it.
  12. Man, the wear spot on the M4 is crazy small!
  13. The Bridgestone Japan website says they are made in Japan.
