Had my JDM 430 for two games now. First game I was trying to hit it too hard and my swing was all over the place. As bad as I was swinging it I thought the feel was great and ball flight was much more sensible @ 10.5° than my SLDR 460. Comparison was with the GD ADDI 6s I was gaming in my 460 at the same loft. Flight was very penetrating. I've herd a few say they thought it wasn't very forgiving, well I didn't get that impression and I hit a few from heel, toe, low and high of center. Contact was very solid thwack and not that tinny ring/ping that's familiar with a lot of Ti woods.
Second hit out and I was swinging it much better (not trying to blast the inner out of the cover). Once again I didn't notice any massive non forgivingness with off center hits. Ball flight was very consistent mid trajectory and penetrating all day. Ones that I nutted out of the middle were long for me. The odd average swing didn't spin off sideways either and was either on fairway or effective and not in the trash.
All up I'm very happy with the JDM SLDR mainly due to fact I was hitting the 460 very high which is against the trend. Depending on what shaft was used in it, this definitely wouldn't suit some one who has trouble getting the driver in the air or looking for more hight.
Have I mentioned well hit ones are looong.
