I play the Endo forged OnOff Kuro 2015 version and they are fantastic.  I just looked at the AF 303 and did an On-Line price check and I'm shocked
that the Epon Irons are around 2300-2500 bucks.  

             What's up with that sticker price?

The Q&A with the Epon USA folks goes some way to explaining the price point.

I play the AF 302 from 5-P all bent 1 degree strong, to match the AF 502 4 Iron ( for extra forgiveness). All with Shimada Tour lite shaft, which is the Epon recommended stock light weight shaft in Japan. Forgiving irons with Mid/high launch and stopping power on slick greens, powerful and yet unbelievable soft feel in the hands and would definitely recommend them to any accomplished players looking for a set of quality forged irons.

I've recently become enamored with the 302 and was wondering if anyone is still playing them.  I'm thinking about picking up a set used, but for $800+, thought I'd see if today's opinions are still as overwhelmingly positive as in the old threads.  

If I could find a set of copper's it would be a done deal, but trying to fight the urge to buy the standard chromes, and was hoping for your thoughts.

Thanks!

We get a lot of customers that buy the Epon AF 302 because of how forgiving and soft-feel they are.

Still loving my 302s, however after getting myself a Skytrak for Christmas, I'm sensing the need to refinish at some point.  I saw Coops flamed copper chromes and they look AMAZING, however I'm not sure about sending my iron heads to Bankok.  Wish someone here in the states would do a sick copper chrome finish.

Epon no longer offer this fnish at all in ANY iron head - mine were refinished by Epon/endo, but this is no longer an option in any form.

And i wouldn't trust any other refinish either - my 301's are 8++ years and still fine and gorgeous - it's some special sauce thy added to the nickel plating underneath the chrome plating... so you get all the corrosion resistance and long life of a chorme plated head with a coppery look.

TSG was offering a copper finish, while not as good Iím sure it still looked good.  No pics of a set after many rounds so I never bit the bullet and I donít know if they still offer that service.

Not Epon’s but I did get my miura wedges and irons refinished in copper plate with brushed nickel on top. Here is a wedge that I removed the brushed nickel. I’ve been playing them for a few months now and the finish is holding up well. Posted ImagePosted Image

Well, if I could still get that finish that Coop had, I would absolutely do it.  I wouldn't really worry about the shipping per se, but the pain in a** of pulling all the heads, getting over the language barrier, customer service when I inevitably wanted my heads back sooner than they were ready, etc.  :D
