Confirmed that itobori will be making fairway woods to accompany the driver and hybrid.

I'm waiting to receive my hybrid and am looking forward to comparing it to my pxg. I'll probably pick up a 15* head as soon as they are available to see if it can kick the m2 out of the bag.

The design is controversial, but the driver head is a solid performer and I have no reason to doubt the hybrid and fairway woods will be as well when paired with the right shaft.

Some get turned off by the design. I actually really like it. Head for head it performs equally as well as the epic or m2.

The performance is definitely on par with its looks in my opinion.

I had the M1 440 for a whike.its long but irratic for me. The ito is more consistent and predictable for me.

I actually had better numbers and performance than my Tour M1 440 with my 9.5 Itobori. I have since sold my M1!

Getting ready to sell my m2. Did another fitting Friday and the itobori was right on par with the epic for me.

I paid $700 for the head.

Not sure which Itobori head you bought for $700, but TourSpec Golf has this one for $475

They have it listed on their site but will not sell them. The continued shadiness from TSG...

If you order the head you'll get a message that bashes itobori. Very unprofessional in my opinion to have a product listed that you refuse to sell to customers.
