Anyone compare the two for me?

I was able to pick up two Vega wedges and really like them.  As a result, I'm thinking of dipping my toes in the JDM market hoping for more of the same.

My only prior experience was a set of Yonex EZone MB's that were very nice.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Both forgiving sets of irons
Personally I prefer vm01
Long blade lengths with weight positioned low in vm 01 make them easy to hit
Both my sets work off 4 degree loft increments starting at 46 degrees wedge
Vm02 weight in blade is positioned higher which gives a lower flight
They have a very impressive sole grind which plays well
Both irons have a pre worn sole to prevent digging
You canít go wrong with either set

I had the raf cm and vm02, I think the rafcm is much like the vm01.

I greatly preferred the raf cm.  Should have never sold.  Softest clubs ever.  The vm02 reminded me of the fh1000 at address.  Tall face and I just never jived with them.

I really want the VDC irons but the never come up used, ever.

Just built a vc-01/ vm-01 combo set.. amazing.  Vm-01 are not intimidating and I seem to be able to hit shots almost exactly how I plan to.

I think shaft choice is key, I put in 4 different shafts in a 7 iron before deciding.  Ctapers lites were probably lowest dispersion but I lost the Vega feel from the head.. ended up with shimada 115 in regular and it feels like a springboard off the face with no dispersion problems.

I know right?   Vega is one set that I have had 2 of and am still itching for another, and the vdc looks perfect to me.  Honestly I sold the rafcm because I hated the transition from 8 to 7.  To me the 8,9,page were perfect,  it 4-7 got a weird bulge at the toe and I couldn't get past it.  I would buy anything from them with confidence, probably hands down one of the r the radar companies in golf, I just am not moved by their head shapes.

How is the vc01 size wise and offset to the vm01?  That combo set sounds like a really sick combo if they transition.  Vegas make mizuno feel like hitting range balls with tin can at the end of a stick.

Bar Keeper's Friend works well, too.

I have a post on TSG from a few years back when I refreshed a set of Yururi.  Search "Yururi refresh" and you should find it.
