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!
