Those kenmochis tho.....they look damn clean.

NR, cmon to the dark side.  I know on the surface JDM seems pretentious and smoke and mirrors, but Jdm is truly
About a market where small companies and grinders CAN exist, and the cherry on top is, a larger enough number of them fancy solid forged steel over gimmicks.  

The single best thing golf related in my life behind playing again after I thought I wouldn't, is discovering jdm.  

*golf sim is on pace to actually become second best thing in golf for me.  But golf sim + JDM For the win!

My answer is get nothing.  Nothing there moves you enough, you getting something to get and I promise whatever you grab from that pile of options will be traded in by you in a year.

This.

C has had his fair share of JDM, of this I know.  So much JDM - especially the small, obscure guys - is grind modifications to standard heads by Kyoei and a couple others.  There just aren't that many foundries or that many brands paying for their own forging dies.

The only thing I'm still tempted to add is a Boyd set, yet having completed a few more sessions matching up a bunch of clubs to the Baby Blades, I'm even more wary that I could possibly like anything as much.  I've now sold my Crazy MB (without ever hitting them - I know what Kyoei feels like) and may move my United SBB1T.  The Macgregor PMB didn't move me like I'd hoped (was a front-runner design for a Boyd set), so they'll go too.  Then I'll be down to Masda and Cobra King Ltd to keep the BB honest.  If the market wasn't so dismal, I might even move those.

What an incredible shame if indeed the BB exit the market forever.

Actually I had it spelled correctly, but some sites, like this one, for reasons that escape me and are beyond my pay grade, seem to require the entire url (https://www.mixsongolf.com) which didn't occur to me until your link... thx. But mixsongolf.com doesn't work.

What an incredible shame if indeed the BB exit the market forever.

I have sort of reached a phase where my passionate lust for irons has dulled.  Maybe because I'm not playing well enough to enjoy their benefit, and maybe because as K suggested, I have had my share of JDM irons/quality blades... I started to recount them all but my inner accountant shouted 'don't pull the curtain back!' so I stopped in the nick of time.  But I say 'phase' because I have always had a lust for beautiful iron, and I am betting this phase will pass. I can already hear that little whimper, see that sideways glance at all the eye candy that pops up.  But for now, I am content with my setup as it is, which is nice.  

I keep thinking my game is about to bust loose.  I had a period like this about 18 months ago... I stayed on the edge, on the edge, on the edge, then finally the dam burst (to mix a bunch of metaphors because I am lazy) and the index plummeted.  I think I am about to do the same.  My swing feels so close to being solid.  Back in gym, getting better range of motion, etc.  But then again, this is golf.  I've spent decades thinking I was on the edge of a breakthrough.  

Playing tomorrow with a wrx'er (shutsteepstuck who's a good player and a good guy) and another good stick/good guy (I am introducing them -- can't believe he's not a wrx guy but he's not - but he's the type. If he discovered the site, he'd end up for sure with a LM in his garage.) up at rustic canyon north of LA. Supposed to be in the mid 70's after a good rain earlier this week - pristine golf conditions. (Sorry, you guys in the midst of winter...)   These guys are both better than me, and great to spend a day on the links with.  I get excited for special golf days.  Wash my clubs, clean my shoes... Gonna take some tylenol for when the back gets tight - we all walk  and this is not a real hilly course, but it's long with a few holes with distance between green and next tee.  Gil Hanse design, out past to the point it doesn't feel so urban.  It's not a real 'manicured' course, and feels like the land around it...scrub, cactus, sand.  Greens are big but have false fronts and tiers.  Fun fun course.

That's the thing. Get on a fun course, with guys you enjoy, and there's just that same eagerness and optimism I've had since I was a kid.  That's amazing to me... after 50+ yrs of playing golf, I still feel 'it' to play like I always did.  I really hope we all play well.  It feels like such a celebration afterwards when everyone plays well.  The three of us are all reasonably self-absorbed (as golfers tend to be!) so it'd be 3 monologues at the 19th hole.  And I am just as guilty as the others.  Which is hilarious.

Option 6.). Sell bigmean the Sakura irons for $250 plus shipping because he is such a nice guy $50 is all I could have the heart to mark up on him for The effort.



Obviously the Kenmochi are flyers of group.

My other problem is that I'm not good at trading stuff in...I tend to hang on to it.
I think the Kenmochi are the most tempting, but I'm holding off for now. I really need to just get out and play. Take my mind off equipment and get it back on actually playing the game.

Do you want me to look at the Sakura? I need to check the price and shafts again, because I haven't looked at them in over a month.

Edit: to the extent that I can't even remember if they are Sakura irons or something else!

Got a bit of an iron dilemma. Wondering about buying one of the following sets of irons:

1) Nike OG blades (about $135)
Pros: Love the look of these, and they feel great. Weak lofts is a real plus, IMHO. 3-PW
Cons: Shafts are a club shorter than standard (i.e. 3i is standard 4i length) and some are very rusted. Really would have to reshaft. When I consider that, the price is less tempting.

2) TM 2011 MB  (about $190, IIRC)
Pros: Feel surprisingly good. Condition is good
Cons: No 4i (though I could probably pick one up eventually).

3) Halyruid Blades by Kenmochi (about $500)
Pros: these are simply gorgeous to look at and gorgeous to hit. Also rare. Nice grips, and great condition
Cons: No 4i, and I doubt I'll ever find one. Will have to use my 9w instead. Price is more than I would like to pay for a extra set of irons (got lots already)
   Pictures of said irons: http://jonetsugolfja...&product_id=145

4) George Spirits Sakura
   Pros: Feel pretty good, look pretty cool. Good condition. 3-PW, price is not bad (about $200, IIRC)
   Cons: Shafts way too soft for me (NSPRO 950S). Lots of weight on bottom of muscle also means I might be hitting moon balls.

5) Srixon 925
Pros: 3-PW. Good condition, feel good. Price OK ($200, IIRC)
Cons: none really, but I haven't really hit these much yet.

I reckon I could get the shop to knock a bit off the Halyruid, but I'll still be paying over $400 for them.
I could just not bother with any of them and get a nice persimmon driver I've been stalking on the Net for a while. But the temptation is great....

Nikes all day, they are just so clean and set up perfectly... it might be an additional cost with the re shaft but man OG Nikes!!

I didn't even read the rest of the options, that's how much I think you should get the Nikes... and then post pictures so I can drool...

I agree. I've been itching for a set for a while now. Quite happy to buy them, pull the shafts, and keep the heads around for the X100 shafts once I've finished with the beaten up Mac MT Tour Forged.

Nikes all day, they are just so clean and set up perfectly... it might be an additional cost with the re shaft but man OG Nikes!!

I didn't even read the rest of the options, that's how much I think you should get the Nikes... and then post pictures so I can drool...

Does this picture of my 1 iron help? :)

Got a bit of an iron dilemma. Wondering about buying one of the following sets of irons:

1) Nike OG blades (about $135)
Pros: Love the look of these, and they feel great. Weak lofts is a real plus, IMHO. 3-PW
Cons: Shafts are a club shorter than standard (i.e. 3i is standard 4i length) and some are very rusted. Really would have to reshaft. When I consider that, the price is less tempting.

2) TM 2011 MB  (about $190, IIRC)
Pros: Feel surprisingly good. Condition is good
Cons: No 4i (though I could probably pick one up eventually).

3) Halyruid Blades by Kenmochi (about $500)
Pros: these are simply gorgeous to look at and gorgeous to hit. Also rare. Nice grips, and great condition
Cons: No 4i, and I doubt I'll ever find one. Will have to use my 9w instead. Price is more than I would like to pay for a extra set of irons (got lots already)
   Pictures of said irons: http://jonetsugolfja...&product_id=145

4) George Spirits Sakura
   Pros: Feel pretty good, look pretty cool. Good condition. 3-PW, price is not bad (about $200, IIRC)
   Cons: Shafts way too soft for me (NSPRO 950S). Lots of weight on bottom of muscle also means I might be hitting moon balls.

5) Srixon 925
Pros: 3-PW. Good condition, feel good. Price OK ($200, IIRC)
Cons: none really, but I haven't really hit these much yet.

I reckon I could get the shop to knock a bit off the Halyruid, but I'll still be paying over $400 for them.
I could just not bother with any of them and get a nice persimmon driver I've been stalking on the Net for a while. But the temptation is great....

With the neon yellow reflection it looks like it could be a Vapor 1 iron. Now that would be a unicorn.

As a followup to the iron conundrum, so far I have decided to buy some persimmon instead. I've got 5 Mizuno woods coming my way soon.

That said, I haven't completely written off the irons. I might wait until the end of March when I am due a nice chunk of change for some work I have be doing.

Driver: Ping G400 Tour 65S
4w: TaylorMade V-steel, AD-GT 6X
7w  TaylorMade V-steel, Quadra Fire Express RB 6SX
Driving Iron: Honma TW-U Forged #3, Modus 120S
Irons (4i-PW): Mizuno MP18 PX6.0 @ + 1/2"   
Wedges: Callaway MD2 52* S and 58* (U, S, or T-Grind depending on how I feel)                    
Putter: Odyssey White Hot Pro #9 or Wilson TPA XVIII

Playing tomorrow with a wrx'er (shutsteepstuck who's a good player and a good guy) and another good stick/good guy (I am introducing them -- can't believe he's not a wrx guy but he's not - but he's the type. If he discovered the site, he'd end up for sure with a LM in his garage.) up at rustic canyon north of LA. Supposed to be in the mid 70's after a good rain earlier this week - pristine golf conditions. (Sorry, you guys in the midst of winter...)   These guys are both better than me, and great to spend a day on the links with.  I get excited for special golf days.  Wash my clubs, clean my shoes... Gonna take some tylenol for when the back gets tight - we all walk  and this is not a real hilly course, but it's long with a few holes with distance between green and next tee.  Gil Hanse design, out past to the point it doesn't feel so urban.  It's not a real 'manicured' course, and feels like the land around it...scrub, cactus, sand.  Greens are big but have false fronts and tiers.  Fun fun course.
Say hi to J for me!  I spent 6 months living in L.A. back in 2014 (skipping one of the worst Michigan winters on record - it was glorious), and got to know him after we met up to play at Simi Hills (I think I'd started a thread about good places to play while I was out there, and he responded, and did one of those awkward meet-ups where you're meeting someone you met on the internet, but he's a super nice guy and easy to talk to, and like you said, he can golf his ball.
In the short time that I lived out there, Rustic Canyon was my favorite place to play.  It's a great design, and they are great about letting it play firm and fast.  I actually joined the men's club out there for the stretch that I lived there, and played in some of their monthly tournaments. The course is in a Canyon (duh), and it's one of those places where you don't even really need to bother really looking at the green to read putts.  Everything breaks toward the entrance gate to the property, except on #17 -- they built that green up so it basically goes the opposite direction of every other one. You really need to keep in mind where you are in relationship to the prevailing slope, because if you don't pay attention and you're putting downhill, it's easy to run it way by (and off the green in some cases).

I'm going to be out there a couple of times in February and March, and I'm hoping to bring my clubs with me.  We should all get out for a round.

As a followup to the iron conundrum, so far I have decided to buy some persimmon instead. I've got 5 Mizuno woods coming my way soon

Persimmons can be at least as large as black hole as blades.  I bought a Golden Ram TW802 driver, got here in early December.  I keep hearing the siren's call to dump the metal and go old school, single SW/LW, 1-PW, and persimmons.

Plenty of room for messing with different clubs that way, too, with various model persimmons.

Tempting...
The Ever Changing Bag!

Driver:  R9 SuperDeep, NV ProtoPype 80 X at 43½" --or-- SLDR White, RIP Alpha 80 X at 43.5" --or-- TEE XCG7 Beta, Motore F3 80 X, 43.5" --or-- King LTD, NV ProtoPype 80 X, 43.5"
3w:  Stage 2 Tour 3w, SK Fiber Tour Trac 100 X, 42.5"
2h Stage 2 Tour, NV105 S or DGS400
3-PW Golden Ram TW276, NV105 S --or-- 1-PW Golden Ram Vibration Matched, DGS400 (toggle 1i and 2h above)
Occasionally: 1 iron Maxfli Revolution, DGS400

SW:  Ram Tom Watson 55°, DGX ss2x
LW:  Maltby Design 60°, DGS300 tipped 1"
SW:  Ram Troon Grind 58°, Dynamic S (with 1-PW set, replacing SW/LW above)
Putter:  Cleveland Huntington Beach #1 35"
Balls:  in no particular order...  Wilson Staff FG Tour or 50 Elite, Srixon ZStar/ZStar XV
Shoes by True Linkswear
Pure Pro grips, various colors (also trying Royal X-Treme V)

I have to post this eBay ad on here because this is a special one and I think everyone that comes to GolfWRX knows how revered the Mizuno MP-33s are. These look like they have never been hit. I am not affiliated with this ad but the guy is incredibly nice, ships fast, and I purchased a set of heads in similar condition from him over Christmas and am very happy with them. I think someone from here deserves a shot at them.

Option 6.). Sell bigmean the Sakura irons for $250 plus shipping because he is such a nice guy $50 is all I could have the heart to mark up on him for The effort.



Obviously the Kenmochi are flyers of group.

My answer is get nothing.  Nothing there moves you enough, you getting something to get and I promise whatever you grab from that pile of options will be traded in by you in a year.

Don't buy something until you can't stop thinking about it and no others.  

Just my .02

My other problem is that I'm not good at trading stuff in...I tend to hang on to it.
I think the Kenmochi are the most tempting, but I'm holding off for now. I really need to just get out and play. Take my mind off equipment and get it back on actually playing the game.

Do you want me to look at the Sakura? I need to check the price and shafts again, because I haven't looked at them in over a month.

Edit: to the extent that I can't even remember if they are Sakura irons or something else!

Just went back and looked: I was right on the price (just under $200), right on the shafts (NSPRO 950S), but wrong on the model. They're not Sakura, but a much earlier model called "Studio". Nice to hit, but not as pretty as the Sakuras.
The shop also has a 3-PW set of this https://page.auction...tion/w210587647. I've hit them a few times (shafts are DG S200), and while they feel great, the heads are a bit large for my liking.
I also hit the Docus blades today (http://www.docus-gol...ct/iron/dci702/). Not a fan of the back design, although you can't see it at address, and the PW is a bit large, but otherwise these are really nice feeling irons. The shafts were DG S200 Tour Issue "Fine Tuning". Now I don't know if they're anything different from normal S200s, but they really seemed to provide a nice thump.

Stupid question: Do wedges count as blades/MBs? Or are they just wedges. :taunt:

Now that I've purged a lot of my extra gear, I've realised the only blade/MB I could put in play right now (ie. it's got a shaft in it and not just some loose heads) is my TZoid II 2 iron! Unless Mizzy's T line of wedges count.

Good good. You know I don't want to have to start paying a membership, if I don't meet the entrance criteria ;)
I've promised myself to get through 2018 with what I currently have, so unless I shaft up some 2011 TP MBs I might not have anything to put in play.

Iím not a great fan of TM but those 2011 MBs piqued my interest when they came out. Iirc, Sir Nick himself had some input into the shape (from the top line, not the back!). I would struggle to leave them unshafted and not part of the 2018 rotation.

Now that I've purged a lot of my extra gear, I've realised the only blade/MB I could put in play right now (ie. it's got a shaft in it and not just some loose heads) is my TZoid II 2 iron! Unless Mizzy's T line of wedges count.

I'm going to be the contrarian to mahonie's position, wedges are just wedges.

That said, I'm an inclusive sort; I don't think you need to be using blades currently, or even possess a set, in order to partake in the thread.  It's the "Blade users thread," but I don't see a tense there.  You're possibly not using them now but you *were*, and you could be again in the future; that's good as far as I'm concerned.

Posted with the full realization I'm adding a serious tone to something that isn't.  :pimp:

Indeed - I coulda just said can wedges be considered blades/MBs. So I'm just messing with the other stuff.
I guess the assumption is a wedge is going to be bladey - as there are only a couple OEMs that make a big wedge.
