Wow, these look amazing....anyone tried?

I want to get away from the normal clubs every golfer has on the first tee... Pings, TMAG and the like.

I've seen them here in Bangkok (Golf Craft, who are also Epon dealer), and one guy we play with has a set of the CB irons.

I play the Epon 301's... and the Grindworks CB is identical except for the extra grind on the back at the toe end - from what Sarint at Golfcraft will say, Grindworks is somewhat related or was to the Epon guys... so looks to me like they use the old 301 forging dies - and i mean that as a compliment!

I met with a local guy who sells them at the beginning of this year as I fell in love with the looks.  Unfortunately, to me they felt terrible..to the point there was no way I would play them.  Sure were nice to look at tho.

How could S20C feel terrible?   Damn that sucks

What do you think the issue was?  What shaft and head combination?

I bought a 58* 86f model wedge (head only, lh) from MIke's Golf Outlet earlier this year. I threw a DG TI S400 wedge shaft in it. Felt great to me. Nice quality. Looks great. From what I recall Mike's only had left hand wedge heads available in 52/56/58. Paid less than $40/shipped for the head.

Lol. Say what you think Tsupo.

Thanks for all the replies and after speaking to a club builder here in the UK who stocks Grindworks, Vega, Muira, Heskei and the new Orka forged range, I will be trying them out after Xmas.

I asked him about feel and performance etc and he said that they are comfortable on par with the very best Japanese forged. He was very surprised when I told him that I had seen a negative review.

Same I saw them at Golfcraft either way Grindworks CB or the 301 are great.  Though it would be cheaper to buy the Grindworks off rakuten or directly from Japan
if you could rather than pay the excessive Thai prices!

Yes & No - I haven't seen them  on "Global" Rakuten yet! But can certainly buy off Rakuten Japan of which you would probably need to use a japanese mailing house to send overseas.

Sorry tsupo, I guess I mistook them being Promoted by a builder that places a lot of auctions as popular?  I seem to keep coming across them, but I am looking in niche areas I guess so popular was not the best comment?

Yup your right the Blue Screw icon II came out in 2015/2016 i think.  PXG comes across as not so innovative when there are already similar products out there.
Like TM and the speedslot on the sole of their  irons - first introduced by Wilson Staff in the 1980's or 1990's- which WS called TM out on!
