I've searched the JDM forum and didn't come up with much so if there's already a similar thread, any link would be greatly appreciated... I'm relatively new to JDM products, but reading a similar topic in another forum I was able to learn about a ton of older solid performing USDM clubs. So let's see it. Driver to putter, what would your cult classic JDM bag look like?

Titleist 910 D3 (10.5*) Fubuki Alpha 60
TM RBZ S2 Tour (16.5*) Fubuki Alpha 70
Ping i15 (18.5*) Fubuki Tour 73
Adams DHY (21*|24*) Matrix Ozik HX3
Ping s55 (5-PW) Matrix Ozik Program 95

For classic status, the 302s parent (the 301s) I suppose meets the requirement better... the 301s ( which I have so, yes, I'm biased ;-)   ) were actually available before that under the name Technica Pro 1, back in 2004
:superman2:

and for comparison, a completely gratuitous pic of one of my 301s   :taunt:

and a special p.s.
while digging around for the photo of the old Technica iron... found out Epon are releasing anew version of the AF-Tour - the blade with the swoosh type channel...

Do most of you guys use Rakuten for used clubs? Also, how are the older S-Yard line of drivers and fairways?

Such a fun topic!  Just getting into Bridgestone products and am quickly becoming a big fan.  I’m looking into some tourstage irons and wedges to build a bag with some older models and see how they stack up.  Looking for compact cb’s.  First thought was 701m.  What wedge would you match it with?  This will be a fun project!
