Not Epon’s but I did get my miura wedges and irons refinished in copper plate with brushed nickel on top. Here is a wedge that I removed the brushed nickel. I’ve been playing them for a few months now

Kari Lajosi did it here in Australia.

Still have my left copper AF302's. I haven't been playing them, but love to look at them in my office. They are kind of like artwork. I will post a few pictures when I get a chance.

I’ve had a set of each finish. Love the feel and timeless looks but just can’t ever get over the way the club sits in the short irons. As someone who misses left, something about the offset and heel/hosel transition just doesn’t suit my eye.

One thing that never occurred to me back then was bending them a couple degrees weak to get rid of some of the offset. I think with the right shaft I could get away with bending them weak and still finding the right ball flight window.

I definitely regret selling the coppers. That sets been around the world, probably several times.

I still have my AF-301’s, and do put them into play every now and again.  Still a very solid, soft, playable set of irons.  Had the AF-Tour for a while, only every got to see the AF-302s in passing.

I decided to keep my satin 302s. After over 600 rounds, they show little wear. Granted, I use Epon neoprene head covers and get a few snickers, but there's no chatter marks and I always clean my grooves. I've been back in the gym, and regained some strength I lost during the lockdown and am OK for now with the TT XP 95 shafts that Joe Kwok fitted and built the clubs for me with them in. I'm a woman in my 50s and can live with hitting my 7 iron 145 yards. They feel so good and I don't want to mess with them, plus the Kwok build is expensive. I get guys checking out my clubs fairly often and most have no idea what Epons are. They probably think they're some eBay cheapos. 

 

I hit a Mizuno MP-20 MMC and didn't feel I was gaining anything and still prefer the soft buttery feeling of the 302s. It seems like the new tech makes the most difference in driver and woods, so I'm going to do a fitting at Club Champion later this month and focus on that part of my bag, as well as find a better shaft for my K Grind 64º as I'm souring on the DG Spinner I've had in it for several years.
