Justin had 27 clubs in his bag so I couldn't really shoot a "normal" WITB.  AS soon and he has the gamers firmed up I'll shoot another.


Thx

I hope the caddy gets a bonus for lugging that lot to the range.

Some nice looking spanners, I wonder if the TW-Us have less offset than the retail versions?

Those are some gorgeous irons.  I could never hit the blades consistently but damn, are they pretty.  The cavities are too and I would totally be all over them if I could find them in a store near me.

Crazy how this switch stems from him wanting to use that Axis putter, which looks really weird.

The Axis putters have come a long way in the looks department though from those first models that showed up. Congrats to them for sticking it out long enough to make their way into the #1 Player in the worlds bag.

I'm very interested to see how the woods work out for Rose. It could really add some credibility to the Honma wood line up.

Honma is VERY underrated. Played their irons and wedges a few years back Simply put they are world class. Woods looked great but never took them out. My ego got in the way. Here are the pics of the gear. Awesome... http://www.golfwrx.c...s-avail-in-usa/

Anyone know the story/specs behind the Vizard shaft he is playing in the driver....driver nor the shaft shows on Honmas site. Assuming VIZARD/Honma just made a new version similar to the Tensei Orange to help promote Honma....

Not sure about that particular Vizard shaft but historically Honma is known in Asia to be a premier leader in shaft design & manufacturing. In their early days, their shafts were rated 1-5 stars. The higher the star rating, the more exotic materials & experienced the shaft designer/manufacturing people were assigned to. 5 star shafts were more valuable than gold or platinum and only the elite of elite had them. That’s where the stigma of Honma being a brand for rich old guys came from. They were the OG PXG.

I have hit the irons and they are excellent. I agree. That set you have is gorgeous and truly no offset which is a darn hard thing to find these days. I've never hit one of the woods at all, so I'm quite interested to see how this goes with Rose.
