I am ooking to pickup a set of JDM irons but don’t know where to start. I am hoping to pick up a used set relatively cheap.

CB/MB with minimal offset would be great. Smaller more unknown brands would be awesome

Google “Global Rakuten Golf” and look particularly for a shop named “Golf Partner”. They ship to the US and communicate in English. However with most used club sites, they don’t accept returns.  You can also try Mottainai Golf (motgolf.com).

If you want a great CB with minimal offset that can be found for cheap you should look at PRGR from a few years back. Their TR500 or iD-BL models are to this day some of the best JDM irons ever.

I’m a big fan of forged irons.  So I would like to recommend. a set of Miura 1957 Small Blades. I love them!
