TSG Club Works | Titleist Cold Forged Vokey | Custom Finishes

DSC07215

The Cold Forged Vokey has been one of the most popular wedges sent to TSG Club Works for a refinish and in the above image you can see why, here we have a beautiful copper satin that at sunset or sunrise will glow almost orange.  Some of these finishes are not for the faint of heart let’s take for example copper mirror or satin each time the oil from your fingers touch this finish it leaves a fingerprint in a darker bronzy color that over a short period of time becomes a rusty patina immune to glare or glow as it once was.

Below is copper mirror and like the satin it wears easily,  you never lose the copper you simply gain the patina over it and it is an acquired taste,  Please follow the Jump to see more images of cold forged vokey refinishes including black oxide,  black boron and copper mirror + satin…

Titleist AP1 FORGED Irons | Korea Model

Titleist-AP1-Forged-Irons-Korea-Model

Titleist AP1 Forged Irons Korea Spec Model – Titleist Japan had the VG3 series along with the Cold Forged Vokey and full release T-MB 716 irons on top of  the full selection of retail models that Titleist offers,   Korea has always had only 1 exclusive model and this year again its the AP1 Forged iron but in the latest 716 series.

The AP1 Forged is a cavity back with distance and forgiveness in mind It features a deeper undercut cavity creating a low CG,  the lofts are strong and both heel and toe have tungsten weights to keep MOI up.  All around these are very similar to the standard release AP1’s but where it differs greatly is in feel,  the Korea Only AP1 “Forged” Irons feel closely related to the VG3 and T-MB irons and we are thankful for that.

Designed as Titleist’s most forgiving forged CB these are mid sized irons  they are not small nor are they big I would say that they cover a wide range of skill levels from pro to high handicap and what I mean by pro is senior tour level or ladies tour not so much PGA tour as those guys prefer compact sized iron heads.  More photos and information after the jump…

Geotech T-215 Japan Forged Irons

DSC06700

The new Geotech T-215 irons are forged of S25C in Japan and feature a three layer cavity back created to be balanced and centered on the club head,  It’s finish is Nickel Chrome Satin with a sand blasted top line to help reduce glare.

The sole is multi-cut with a slight leading edge relief yet with a noticeable trailing edge grind to help if in tough lies,  the new Geotech T-215 is considered a straight neck iron with minimal offset  available in 4-PW, the lofts are what I consider normal with the PW coming in at 45*. Geotech recommends the new T-215 with the Modus3 130 and we would suggest this for players in the 0-20hcp range.  Custom builds include nearly any shaft and grip combo from Japan and the lofts and lie angles are adjustable by 2* either way at the factory.  You can also purchase head only.  Follow the Jump for more photos…

Taylormade Royal Gloire Driver for Japan

DSC06691

Taylormade Royal Gloire Driver – A Graphite Composite Face… that isn’t something we see very often in golf especially a face that looks as out of the ordinary as this driver,  and whats with no adjustability whatsoever?  This is common in Japan yet in the states adjustability is very popular.  Don’t ask why ;)

This face is a lightweight carbon material that features a new widened inverted cone technology that supposedly creates a hotter ball velocity that is stable and straight.  Designed for the slower swinger,  female or senior golfer it’s touted as the most premium club Taylormade has produced and with a price nearing $1500 usd it’s geared to a very specific segment.  Even if that’s not you have a look at this very interesting and intriguing club,  and if you are in the segment this caters to I suggest having a read by following the Jump…

Seven Putters Slowly Trickle in

Seven Kyuzo Putter

The brand SEVEN has been around for less than a year although the Kyuzo.01 putter was started years prior with a small batch of 10pcs done with the help of Golds Factory in modifying the blank SEVEN heads, they were beautiful yet very expensive so we decided the new goal would be to make something that had the quality and performed and felt as close to the original and rare 10pcs as possible.  The requirements were simple, it had to be made in Japan by the best people using the best  designs and materials as well as provide a wide array of custom options prior to release earlier this year we were informed very few putters could be allocated to us by our factory,  doing our best we produced that amount and nearly all sold out in the first month pre booked to customers and shops all over the world and that is why some may have seen them in Thailand or Korea already prior to official launch.  At the time of this post there are less than 20 putter heads available to offer.

It has an incredible fit and finish,  it rolls end over end with minimized skipping, and feel oh boy yes not to soft and not so firm just right we sourced metal materials from the best supplier we could find in Kyoto Japan testing SUS303, 304, SM490A, Fe Carbon, etc..  In the end we decided on something firmer than carbon but softer than stainless so we selected SM490 giving a dense and buttery vibration going from the head, through the shaft, and up to the hands.   Every putter can be modified we bring in the raw heads in and can bend and finish, assemble, and paint fill per order above you see NiCr Satin with translucent red paint fill,  Follow the Jump to read and read about and see more putters…

Grandista Type-S Driver Review

DSC03623-Edit

A few weeks ago we reviewed the Grandista DAT55G Driver head and today we have the same model except with an SP700 material face and silver highlights on the crown and face,  So why produce 2 drivers both with the same design yet just different face materials?  Its really about preference of feel,  Yoshida-san former tour pro and founder/designer of Grandista was able to produce a slightly softer feel and sound at impact with the SP700 model yet with the same  CT “Characteristic of Time” that the ball is compressed against the face and in this case it’s VERY high at CT=257 for both the DAT55G model and the SP700 model.   Yesterday I was able to hit both models together so please follow the jump for what I found the difference was…
