JBeam ZY-11 is probably the best JDM driver I have ever had.

Jumping in this thread rather than creating more of  the same.  I'm a low ball hitter (low flight and spin) with a SS of around 105.  It seems to me that many of the heads that have been recommended in this thread are more low launch/low spin profile heads are they not?  Can someone recommend some mid launch/mid spin heads that sit square or open as my misses are hooks?

Gaming a Jbeam 435 Blackout that I custom  ordered w the head foamed.  It's close to perfect for what I value in a driver.

So I'll probably at some point list it on the Classifieds, but I ended up testing the ZY11 with a Xanadu shaft vs a OnOff358 with a TRPX Air shaft. ZY11 just won. No idea of distances as it was range balls in Massachusetts in March, but the Head/Shaft combo didn't work as well for me. So if anyone is interested in it we can chat.

Just wanted to say FOR ME the ZY11 was a perfect feeling head and was very straight with that shaft.

Any of those Jbeam heads that are foamed feel amazing.  I'm gaming a foamed 435 Blackout and the sound and feel are near perfect.

Mizuno’s latest JDM driver is pretty nice, but anything Mizuno’s offering over there trumps here...sad we miss on a lot of nice irons...latest being mp66 (refined 64/25; beautiful) come to mind; but drivers as well, wouldn’t consider what we have here, but nice offerings in JDM market

These are  a fraction of what ive used over the years and  for me the best of what ive hit.
the freiheit is a  very good driver, big boxy  kind of longer elongated face VERY easy to hit, very big face, sound/feel is  super.
used  it  for  the high summer  season 2 yrs ago, all carry  it was hard to take it outta the bag,it  gets a ton of carry but the loft  is  too high for me now , I  have the 10.5*  and  I like a lower flight these days  so  I benched it.
worth  a look tho. the fw are uber hammers
