Very interesting, Pete. Have you placed your order? Thanks for the info..... :-)
heh heh heh...I think Golf to Impress and Tour Spec Golf (the shop for purchasing club and apparel offerings) is a great site for golf club design enthusiasts. THe Japanese club manufacturing market is, from what I can see, far less centralized with numerous smaller craft operations. This site does a great job of detailed reviews of these craft operation offerings. i have to say, I simply love the esthetics of many of the offerings in Japan.Some of these clubs are simply put, works of art. And the performance stats of some of these manufacturers are eye opening. Of course, all these offerings come with a price...Anyone out there willing to part with $1200+ for a new driver?
I think for most of us, the balance of price, performance, and appearance is important. It is here that i think Titleist and FJ simply shine. I wil continue to gaze at some of these Japanese craft offerings..Call it CLUB P*RN!!
