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…
The all new Jbeam Ti Fairway Wood – Titanium and designed to be easy to hit from most lies Jbeam has made another very forgiving FW, they now have 3 excellent fairway woods that should be considered if you are in the hunt for one, the RX-FW which is perfect in feel and compact size for the better player, then the Jbeam Glorious which is more shallow, larger and more forgiving that we found very long and easy to hit as is and now the TF series which is Titanium instead of stainless with a cut away channel similar to Royal Collection this design is interesting because its shallow, oversized at 210ccs in the 3 wood but the CG is designed more forward so while you should have an easy time getting the ball up yes even from the rough it still wont balloon on you. Beautiful fit and finish to it as well… Follow the Jump for more pics!
This is the latest MB from Toyoshima-san of Crazy Sports, well actually its been refinished in black boron with red paint fill by TSG Club Works to make it look extra special. The entire concept around this design is to produce a blade that has extra forgiveness by using somewhat of a cavity along with a slightly thicker sole than most blades have for a better balance of forgiveness and workability.
Made with strong lofts and still a 1 piece S25C hand ground and forged in Japan the new Sbi-02 iron is limited edition with Crazy only producing a small amount every 2 months, we have not hit or tested this iron yet but to see more beautiful images please follow the Jump or contact [email protected] to order & customize your set…
The new PRGR Egg drivers just released for sale on september 11th, a few weeks ago in the blog we covered the Super Egg non conforming version, today we are showing you pre release photos of the conforming version known as the 2015 Egg Driver ( no super ).
This deep faced 460cc driver holds nothing back in terms of technology and materials, PRGR uses a titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) face with a titanium (Ti-8Al-1V-1Mo) body. Available in 2 lofts 10 & 11 degree’s the standard face angle is listed at 2* open but the driver looks and plays very square, this is due to the unique methods prgr uses to design, manufacture, and measure their clubs. More photos after the Jump…
TSG Club Works presents the 2015 Titleist Cold Forged Vokeys in Smoked Copper Finish – It’s trendy and many of our customers have been sending in a variety of wedges for our Japanese Hand Made Smoked Copper treatment for a couple of reasons, the first is with copper the heads have a softer sticker feel at impact, second is after several rounds you begin to see them transform into a beautiful patina finish which people seem to enjoy.
It’s a more rustic and crafty appearance for sure andworth noting is more than 70% of PGA Tour pro’s use wedges that will wear in a raw form, or oxide style finish but smoked copper seems to not only trump those in feel but also in character after long term use. More pics after the Jump….
New PRGR Egg Irons – To say PRGR is at the cutting edge of golf technology would be an understatement year after year they continue to think outside of the box pushing the boundaries and trying things other company just don’t have the guts to, their latest releases are evidence of this with their 2 new irons the Egg Iron Red as seen in this blog post and the non conforming Super Egg Iron which I will review later.
At the heart of the new Egg Irons is it’s power groove structure, when the face meets the ball during impact it flexes and releases pushing off the face at a higher velocity, the front portion of the sole also flexes with the face as one making this a really unique design. High launch and low spin is the result. More photos and comments after the Jump…

Introducing the 2016 model Seven Original Wedge – Only 6 months ago TSG launched our very own in house brand to the public. The concept behind the company is to produce products made exclusively in Japan and utilizing the best crafters and factories Japan has to offer, the “Original” wedges will always be a part of the SEVEN line up evolving into a wedge that we hope golfers believe as perfect in 4 key areas: Grind/Shape, Spin, Feel, and Versatility.
Comparing the new 2016 SEVEN “Original” Wedge to the previous version we have made quite a few changes follow the Jump to hear what those differences are…
Gradista Golf Driver -When TSG offers new brands we usually look for a particular type, brands that have a full line up and release products annually, brands that have a unique difference about them like top of the line materials from Japan and ultimately brands that produce products that perform, in this situation Grandista Golf only has 1 product in their line up ( with 2 variants ) so why did we decide to offer it? Because after a few whacks at the ball it was obviously a performer and we are proud to announce our relationship with them.
Not only is the Grandista Driver unique but it’s really well thought out in it’s design, one of my favorite things is that they use DAT55G from Daido steel co in Japan, yes look for the “G” when shopping DAT55 because that’s the one you want this material is one of TSG members favorite on drivers it produces slightly faster ball speeds than the others and of course costs a little more as well. Lots to share on this excellent excellent driver so follow the jump….
Mizuno MP-55 Forged Irons – Big day for Mizuno releases the Japanese MP-55 iron has been announced and it looks promising. Versus the MP-54/H5/15 the new MP-55 features the deepest center of gravity of all, it’s sweet spot height is also lower than the others making it a strong lofted, higher trajectory semi-players cavity back.
Mizuno has created a new V shaped T-Slot filling most of the cavity to provide a more solid and dense feel, the combo of loft/deep cg/low cg creates a higher trajectory for more distance and a stronger ball flight. It is Forged of S25CM and available 4-PW. The new MP-55 will have YORO craft options coming to TSG at the same time as the official release which is in September. Stay tuned for our photos of customized MP-55 Mizuno Irons.
