1st WITB photo post, and not the best staging a shoot, sorry. Not going to talk much about the heads, lot's of threads with everything one could want to know about 503's.

The shafts are the story here. The most visually stunning shaft I have ever seen, simply beautiful. The down facing side is braided graphite, the upward facing side is a brushed sati steel look. Hope my pics do them justice. Performance wise, my comparison baseline is Epic Pro w/ Recoil 110 S
and J15 CB w/ Fujikura MCI 100 S. I only have 18 holes with these, so these are initial impressions. Will update if there is any interest.

The Mitsu OTi's have the feel of MCI, with the performance of Recoil. To me, OTi and MCI feel a little softer in the handle than Recoil certainly not loose though. Also feel a little kick at the bottom with OTi I did not feel with MCI or Recoil. This "kick" concerned me at first, but dispersion was as tight as Epic/recoil. Again, only 18 holes, so not a lot of evidence yet. Distance wise, same as Epic/Recoil and about a half club longer than J15/MCI.

One point about the 503 head. Turf interaction is way better for me than either Epic or J15. My pattern is to get steep on a lousy swing.
