Seven CB Prototype – Only 2 Sets Worldwide!


_DSC5168-Edit

Here is the latest SEVEN Cavity Blade Prototype – Only 2 sets produced hand made of Forged SS400 in Ichikawa Japan. We have released multiple variants of this cavity design adjusting the grind and shape along the way.  It is an Original CAD design that we are able to transfer to various head molds which allows for flexibility in manufacturing.  The cavity design itself allows for enough center mass to aid in forgiveness and feel yet not so much that it reduces workability.  By keeping the areas besides the center steps free of metal and slightly reducing perimeter weighting we have been able to blend the best attributes of a blade together with the forgiveness of a players cavity.  Follow the Jump for more photos and info…

Golden Ratio S15C Golf Forged

The company Golden Ratio has been around for more than a few years and TSG has covered them in our previous golfs show posts in years past,  this year what prompted me to revisit the brand is their full line up use of S15C forged steel this is a material that creates a buttery soft impact and is currently the softest used carbon steel in golf irons bar none.  Golden ratio has a full line up of irons and wedges along with a new models that we would like to highlight so for more pics and info please follow the Jump… Continue Reading


BALDO COMPETIZIONE 568S IRON

Baldo Japanese Golf Clubs

BALDO COMPETIZIONE 568S Forged Irons – Made of Japan S20C using a process called CF-Compression Forged for a tighter grain producing a more dense and buttery feel at impact these I would call a forgiving players cavity back.  Something not usually seen in forged irons are  CNC milled grooves and milling marks across the entire face that is something usually reserved for wedges.

I have hit these and my opinion as well as more photos after the jump…

Honma TW-W FORGED ** CuStoM BLaCk NiCKeL **

Honma TW-W

You are looking at Sakata Factory Custom Black Nickel Honma TW-W Forged Wedges!  Hideto Tanihara had a hand in working togeher with Honma in the development and testing of these wedges.  Geared to the low handicap / pro player it’s designed for a lower trajectory with what he calls “incredible spin”,  he plays both the AW & SW on the JPGA tour with Vizard IB-95W Shafts which are also unique in that Tanihara-san wanted a shaft that would produce a more accurate lower launch result that still stopped on the greens quickly.

I have not hit the Black Nickel version but I do have a few rounds under my best with the standard finish model and they not only feel great but are top of the food chain when it comes to quality of fit, and finish we wouldn’t expect any less from Honma.  Follow the Jump for more feedback and photos….
