Yesterday we introduced ITOBORI by Mayuki Takai to TourSpecGolf followed by a separate blog post on their ARAKENMA S15C Wedge in Black Boron Finish. Today we are revealing their amazing combo set built around their newly released Driving Iron and combined with their Cavity and Muscle Backs. With Itobori, everything is custom from the finish to stamping, sole grind, head weight, offset and other more exotic requests that we can accommodate. We work with the customer to define their needs, desires and build specs then manage the order from start till finish. This set I will highlight in this blog post is also very custom so follow the Jump for more photos and complete description…

Just wanted to post these up of a custom set of SEVEN X SHINAGAWA irons finished in soft black. This is one of my favorite finishes on my favorite blade irons, the soft black finish is very durable yet has a soft feel at impact it has zero glare and gives the iron a stealth look that isn’t too dark or light. Enjoy more photos at all angles after the Jump…
Many moons ago we posted that Suda-san of Modart Golf was producing muscle back irons in limited quantities by his own hand and here is the final result, it’s forged of S25C triple pressed then it goes through a 900* heat treatment before it’s final precision forging this heat treatment and final forging press is very rare with only 2 factories in Himeji able to accomplish it. The result is a dense and pure impact feeling that provides enough feedback around the edges to let the better player understand where contact was made on the face. Only 100 sets will be made, more photos and a description after the Jump…
Honma TW-BM Limited Edition Irons – Introducing a new limited edition Honma muscle back iron coming June 17th to TourSpecGolf. Designed with specific input from JPGA Tour champion Hideo Tanihara for a more forgiving user-friendly blade design. While it looks very similar to the TW727 series muscle back’s this one features a unique forged material process that Honma has labelled VPF or Variation Productive Force. This combination of a more user-friendly design and manufacturing also produces a softer more supple feel at impact.
The only shafts available will be the Vizard series I and IB models with the standard shaft being the IB-95 Stiff Flex. I have a lot of experience with these shafts as do many of TSG’s Honma’s customers, they improve feel at impact as they are made of carbon yet the IB models play stiff to flex even compared to steel shafts in the same weight. These shafts feature steel fibers in the tip section for improved accuracy via a stiffer tip section.
As you can see in the image below the new Honma TW-BM is slighter longer heel to toe and taller from bottom to top. The sole is also more narrow, and it does have a touch more offset. TSG will be announcing more info as it becomes available with in hand photos before release. These are limited edition and will go quickly, so we are adding these to the TSG ProShop as soon as possible.
Titleist VG3 Forged Japan Only Irons – Introducing the new 2016 VG3’s by Titleist. Only offered in Japan the VG3 series is geared toward the mid to low handicap player the forged version as seen in these photos features very little offset yet with a rounded somewhat thick topline it’s forged head has a progressive cavity with short irons having no undercut while the mid to long irons have a deeper CNC milled undercut for extra added forgiveness. The soles of the mid to long irons also feature embedded tungsten weighting spread optimally across the entire sole area making these very forgiving and lowering the trajectory which blends well with it’s stronger lofts somewhat the same combo used in the Titleist T-MB 716 irons, but these are not stainless steel or hollow like the T-MB they are soft forged 1 piece heads, just the way we like um. Follow the jump for detailed photos of the PW, #7 and #5 irons….
Miura Craftsman World CB-1008 Custom Irons – Another heavily customized set from the Miura Giken Factory in Japan, this set features a Copper – Nickel – Chromium Mirror finish this is the softest feeling chrome mirror finish available anywhere, the sole has the custom grind dent sole option and the heads have been ordered extra heavy. Finally we have requested as little offset possible on this head design making it look like a butter knife at address. Enjoy the photos and if interested in your own custom set, please contact us at [email protected] More Photos after the jump… Continue Reading
A-GRIND CMB Combo Irons – It’s not often we see dedicated set of combo irons produced by a brand so kudo’s to A-Grind for releasing the all new CMB series which is designed as a true combo set matching the the MB & CB in shape, size, and performance along with a dedicated driving iron to replace the your long irons for more forgiveness.
Each of the 3 CMB products can be purchased ala carte as full sets irons ( non-combo ) but both A-Grind & TSG suggests #3/4 in the Driving Iron #5/6/7 in CB with #8/9/PW MB. Of course you can mix it up any way you want and I mean any way you can possibly think up given all the lofts they provide. Follow the Jump for comparison images of all the different models.
Miura Giken CB-1008 Custom Finish + Custom Grind + Heavy Heads + Reduced offset | Pretty bad ass what TSG offers right?
Miura Giken (JAPAN) not to be confused with Miura North America is the real deal the Japanese models come with some pretty intense options which we will highlight after the jump…
TSG Club Works has previously posted 3 different Taylormade R9TP Forged irons in the blog, the black boron w/ yellow, black mirror w/white, copper underlay + satin w/red and the final and last set we produced the copper underlay + blue paint. We produced 4 sets in total from used irons sourced in japan after the refinishing they are all in excellent condition not brand new but look pretty close and after testing these feel better at impact since the refinish over the factory finish.
We have not listed any of these for sale yet, now that all 4 have been shown we will be adding to the TSG ProShop for immediate shipping, enjoy the pics of the copper underlayer + satin blue, by the way all of our finishes are done in Japan in this case it’s NiCr Satin which can’t even be done in the states due to EPA regulations.
