Gold’s Factory New Hand Grind Wedges in Hand!

Some of you may have read about my visit to Gold’s Factory to have Master Sasaya grind a set of wedges to my liking. If you didn’t read the post you can see it here along with many photos.

After I left, there was more fine grinding and polishing to make the wedge smooth and ready for engraving.

I requested just the Gold’s Factory Logo and dots to signify loft, 1 dot for the 52* and 2 dots for the 58*.

Gold’s wedges can be finished in several looks, raw, raw polished, raw gun blue, plated chrome, plated satin, plated copper, plated teflon black and plated soft black. I had seen several Gold’s putters in the soft black so I thought it would be cool to try it on the wedges. I decided on translucent red for the G and F in Gold’s Factory and for the dots as well. The wedges were to be shafted with Modus3 Stiff and Red Iomic Sticky grips with white caps.

The wedges arrived today and I must say I am very pleased with the looks and finish . The soft black looks great and even with the plating you can still see the fine mill marks on the face. The grind and shape turned out perfect and the paintfill and logo look just right.   Check out the pics!

Yamaha 2013 Inpres X V Forged Iron Review

Every year when November rolls around the excitement at Tourspecgolf builds for the announcement of the new Yamaha lineup for the upcoming year. It has turned into big event annually where many of our top customers and in the know golf enthusiasts queue up for the chance to pre order the new models.  As we all know here the Limited Edition Tour Model irons are always the first to sell out typically even before launch. This year Yamaha kept the new models under a tight wrap, amazingly with no leaks as to what they even looked like. Last month when the models were finally revealed many were surprised to find this years V Forged Tour Model was now a blade and this years standard V Forged model was now a… wait what is it exactly?

I’m reviewing the standard V Forged first as Yamaha has decided this year to not offer demos of the Tour Models since they are limited editions. Because of that we need to wait for our actual orders to come in so that we can review the Tour Model.  In early November when Yamaha released pictures of the new V Forged, many people did indeed say “what is it exactly?”  The V Forged has always been a superb all around, close to mid sized cavity back, aimed at the improving golfer and better player.  The key is that is has always obviously been a cavity back.  The new V Forged is quite a departure visually and design wise from all previous generations of the V Forged, and Yamaha does indeed refer to it as a cavity back.

Miura Giken’s new MB-5000WC Forged Wedge

Today I’ll just take a quick look at the new MB-5000WC forged wedge from Miura Giken. I have them as heads only so unfortunately I won’t be shafting them up, so this will be more a look at their design and aesthetics.  Miura is not one to release new models at a rapid pace here in Japan, each model is carefully thought out and tested before going into production. The last wedge they released, the WMF-06 which I took a brief look at herewas in itself quite a radical design for Miura, stepping away from the traditional. Ten months later, Miura Giken has unveiled the MB-5000WC which on the surface looks much more simple than the WMF-06.

At first glance, the placement of the logos and branding seems much cleaner which makes the beautiful satin finish stand out even more. While the WMF-06 was a chrome brushed satin head, the new MB-5000WC appears almost white satin like. The finish looks great. On closer inspection though what really stands out is the smoothly curved back face of each wedge which is what Miura dubs its Hollow Back Design.

Yamaha 2013 Inpres X Lineup Announcment!

In recent years, the annual new product announcement for Yamaha has become a huge event at TSG.  Yamaha’s enthusiast following is indeed a large one overseas, thanks to wonderful designs, great Endo forged feel, and typically awesome performance.  This year Yamaha was very careful ahead of the official November 12th announcement at preventing leaks of info and images of the new clubs so as to keep everyone in suspense.  I started a forum thread on the pre order of the Yamaha clubs based on speculation of their designs back on October 13th and it has been a very popular thread with our members.

Finally today Yamaha rewarded our patience with their official product announcement. The good news is the products look great and they released an unexpected surprise in the adjustable Remix driver. The bad news is as it is every year, that the limited Tour Model irons which are sold out every year before launch, will probably be sold out again in the next week or so. Luckily many customers took  a leap of faith and ordered even before knowing what they looked like!

In the next few days as we digest all the new designs an specs on the new models, we will be adding the products officially to the pro shop for pre orders.  We will also be posting more up to date info on each model as well as promo videos and impressions. In the meantime here is a brief overview of what was announced – you can also visit the forum topic and join in the discussion.

Last year Taylormade Japan decided to create a new Japan only line called Gloire which would compete in the premium segment of the Japanese golf market. The Gloire featured Taylormade’s only forged driver which turned out to be one hot selling and popular club. A forged fairway wood and maraging high performance iron rounded out the lineup.

Yesteday, TM announced new additions to the Gloire lineup including the Gloire Reserve driver, Taylormade’s most premium distance driver ever, the Gloire Forged Iron, an advanced soft feeling multi piece forged iron, and a new all titanium utility for max launch and distance.
