I agree, I ended up purchasing one and when compared to my M2, the ball speed is very similar. it is definitely a quality head, I just need to find the right shaft.

Very nice. That color scheme reminds me of the Jean Baptiste line of woods. Very exotic finishes.

Tourspec is all about being "100% made in Japan".  They had their beef with Itobori and when I messaged them about their Itobori products they had on their site, I too was denied purchasing any Itobori product and the owner, Chris, started bashing Itobori and their products saying most of it is made in China. Unprofessional in my eyes. I mean Callaway and Taylormade equipment are "made in China" yet are outstanding clubs!  

I was able to find the limited blue Itobori driver online for a decent price and let me tell you, it's a bomber!!  Also hit it on the Trackman along side my Tour M1 440 and with the same swing speed of 108-111 MPH, I was getting 2-3 mph ball speed more from the Itobori. Plus it's a definite head turner when I busted it out on the golf course!

Sorry...I'm new to golfwrx, need to figure out how to add pictures

Congrats on the ito driver!  It's a controversial club even amongst jdm hard-cores.  Im still loving  mine which has the raw metal finish

I have the ITO black driver shafted with a TRPX El Dorado SX. It is insane. I would be willing to part with it if anyone is interested as I have been murdering my M2 recently

Finally got my custom Itobori combo irons. Fitted them with the Project X LZ shafts. Absolutely love them.  The feel is surprisingly soft, even on my mis-hits. But to each his own. And sorry, don’t mind the rainbow colors, wanted something a little different only because I have my daughters names custom stamped on them!

When I was scrolling I did a double take.  The picture initially looked like it's being viewed on dial up connection and hasn't fully rendered yet.  The sole grinds look like a lo-res pixelated view of a normal iron.  :)

tSG and Chris are VERY off. I’ve had a few dealings with them and easily the worst client service you can imagine with emails going into hyperspace and tons of atttitude when trying to buy something from them.

Then when I gave a negative review of one of their pump and dump Crazy drivers, I got banned from their forums. WTF??

This is not the first time they’ve had a major falling out with a manufacturer and each time this happens they go from “amazing clubmakers, best feeling driver/irons/wedges”, to being taken off their site and a lot of badmouthing.

A few posters on TSG some years ago were so angered by how they were treated on the TSG website that they actually started their own JDM website.

Tourspec has always been shady- theyve been known for selling Chinese fakes for heads and shafts for years. Id always stay away from them.
