Kyoei Prototype CB


Recommended Posts

These clubs keep popping up in my feed and I have to say they may be the nicest looking heads I’ve ever seen. Never seen this brand in person and never have tried them. I see they are being sold at TSG. Any info on this brand or has anyone tried this head yet? (I know they are new) Also is it better to purchase heads only and send to someone else for assembly or is TSG a competent company to assemble clubs? It seems like if you choose heads only or pick a shaft the price stays the same in the cart so I’m a little confused. Thanks

While you can ignore Tourspec's puffery when it comes to its 'reviews', their description of Kyoei is reliable

 

"New Product from Kyoei for 2019 as we know that Kyoei is the original golf forging house of Himeji, through the decades many industry masters have honed their skills within their walls. They are Japan’s premier golf foundry."

 

So it's good stuff - and that CB is notably clean and not ruined like so many with ridiculous stamping.

Best to check with Tourspec about the price being the same with shaft or head only - looks like a website issue. If you know you're an NSPro fan then go ahead, otherwise get them head only.

 

I prefer a bit more cavity in my CBs - like an Epon AF302, PRGR Tune 01, or OnOff 2017 Kuro.

 

Or these ;-)

Ps : I forgot to mention A-Grind. You can check them out on Tourspec - ex Royal Collection designer, and has designed some good looking woods and irons for A-Grind. For half the price of those Kyoei you could get a combo set to your liking, with your split/makeup of hollow driving iron type to CB to MB or any combination.

I have a set. So far I'm having issues making real solid contact, I've played about 4 rounds with them. But they look great!

Honestly, our weather just changed yesterday, so we'll see how they fare in warmer weather when my muscles are looser.

Hey Ralph! Are you liking the clubs more now? I'm interested in buying them but I'll have to do it sight unseen as I live in Brazil now. Are they forgiving or very blade-ish size? I currently game with Honma 747v irons...

 

Thanks!
