Anyone hit or seen these in person? I had the N1 MB's for a while and liked them a lot. These seem to fit in between the N1 MB and N1 CB, that would be very interesting.

You should buy them and do a review :) I am thinking about getting these or PRGR Tune 01 CB.

Well I can't speak on the Yonex, but if you're deciding between those 2 sets, it should be a no brainer; PRGR for sure. And I'm very biased on PRGR.

Even though heads are made in China? They should feel the same to me whether it was forged in Japan or China. S25C is S25C after all?

Still a toss up for me. PRGR are cheaper because I'd be buying heads only, as opposed to Yonex that would have their tungsten carbon shafts (which I wouldn't mind trying)

I'm dying to get some info on the yonex cb301.  The N1-Mb have been making me drool for months, but i'm forced to turn tail and run every time I delude myself into playing blades.  The N1-CB look a bit chunky.  The cb301 looks just right.

MP-32, how much forgiveness did that graphite insert add to the MB's?

S25 is S25. I didn't find out until just a few weeks ago that Honma moved quite a bit of their process to China but are still overseen by Japan for QC.

I'm not gonna lie to you, that 301 isn't much bigger than their MB's. You're talking very negligible differences. That 301 is pretty thin. The 301 actually looks small ;)

They're one of our most popular models.  They're pretty darn soft, and the graphite insert makes them deceptively long and easier to hit than you might think.  Our store just fit a tour player into them this past week in Houston.  He asked for them and went to play 9 after he was fit.  He shot -4.

I'm thinking they might be a sexier version of my mizuno mp15.

Small profile cb with a suprising amount of forgiveness due to multi material construction.
