  1. hang on to them, endo forged blade like cavity backs, timeless design, those are the only irons i will not sell, still use them on rotation, truly great forged CBs IMO.
  2. those are real, you probably just got a set not made in japan. the usa release of the 747 series did not have made in japan etchings, i had a 747 455 driver and it was very solid, not made in japan, i think assembled in taiwan with honma QC standards.
  3. i am curious too especially with the irons and wedges....where's the sweet spot?
  4. I replaced a Honma TW 755 driver with the TR20 460 and I am starting to love it. Have to get used to the bigger profile but for me, it is longer and much more forgiving. Liked it so much, bought the matching 4 wood and hybrid.
  5. So I also weighed my old Bridgestone J33 CB Irons 3-PW with Nippon NS Pro 950GH steel shafts and they seem more consistent in progression, see below PW to 3 Iron. The question is, can a mid handicap golfer like me really benefit from properly weighted irons or is it negligible? P - 446 9- 440 8- 431 7 -424 6- 415 5- 408 4-403 3-397
  6. Thanks, these are total weights (grip, shaft and head) so they are light. Will look into the swingweight scale, thanks. I used my wife's kitchen cooking weighing scale, lol.
  7. So I weighed my graphite shafted irons and they seem to be askew. I wonder how to fix this and what is the weight progression from PW to 3 irons? Lead tape on heads in various increments? Thanks. Current total weights in grams: P - 411 9 - 410 8 - 398 7 - 399 6 - 386 5 - 387 4 - 394 3 - 373
  8. My Bridgestone J33 CB irons from 2006 or 2007.
  9. Never got to try the TS 202 but heard great thing about it.
  10. You are right. Tried them yesterday and they performed well, so solid and trajectory/distance was good, almost similar to the lighter shafts I played but less dispersion. I believe they are X100 shafts, saw the markings when I changed the grips. Although, I have a moderate swing speed, I have a very fast and hard transition swing so that's probably why they work. I was surprised but quite happy, never really played heavy steel stiff shafts in irons before. The irons were forged Tourstage Z101 CBs and they were a good match. Replaced the grips with standard GP Tour Velvets and brought the club weight down by about 5 to 7 grams. Thanks for your feedback.
