Hi guys....just a quick note about this new driver.... I have had one for about 3 months now and love it. Mine is a "Low launch" (9.7*) with a GD Tour AD 50 gram shaft "R" flex tipped 2 inches to firm it up.... Built to 45.25"  D-1 swing weight with the 10 gram weight in the weight port.
I was at the range this morning and had a try at the new Callaway Epic driver....they were having a  Callaway demo day.....and.....
Launch angle on both the Epic and Hayate were the same....approx. 15*........ spin rate on the Hayate was approx 100 rpm less (My spin rate average was 2250 rpm)  and the carry distance with the Hayate was 6 yards more with my swing.....I am 71 years young so no passive brag by mentioning distances .... range balls and a head wind at about 10* Celsius  :swoon:
Love the new Hayate :taunt:

i'm Miura fanboy and just picked up my second set of irons.....but i can't get my head around justifying the price for JDM drivers.

With irons there's an element of heritage and feel' to the clubs. Woods in my mind are more about technology and R&D.

is there really anything else that makes Miura driver special?

Good looking driver. I've been curious as to how they performed. The reviews are scarce.

I see you got some other bags in the background...what ya got in there? :)

Got a set of CB 57 irons in the tour bag...HB and NEO hybrids and a full set of SIT woods...a few extra wedges and putters.
In the blue bag in the corner is a full bag of Yonex from about 2001....got a vintage set of forged blades with persimmon woods....just the usual golf junky stuff :taunt:

I got it from Miura Golf Inc. ....they came in white, red and blue....don't have them anymore....I have had that one for just over a year. To save you asking I also got the Miura Tour bag and the Miura Sun Mountain carry bag from them as well.

Just added the Hayate 3 wood and 5 wood to my bag..... Loving them right from the git-go. Both of them also have GD Tour AD shaft as well......... DI 6 SR flex tipped to get the right numbers for my swing. I tried moving the weights around ....heavier in the heel...heavier near the toe and tried some much heavier weights than they come with.... For me the stock set-up seems to work best... 8 grams near the heel 4 grams at the toe.
I hit them higher than my previous SIT fairway woods and a bit longer carry..... hard to quantify it on the range but in 2 rounds it seems like about 5-8 yards more carry off the ground  and maybe about 10 to 15 more off a tee shot with a little higher trajectory on both...all good!! :swoon:

BTW ...My 3 wood is 15.5*  and 5 wood is 18.2*....both have square face angle.
