Review: JBeam Galpha Driver


Had a chance to shaft up this  Jbeam Galpha  driver with a TRPX  Xanadu to give it a whirl.    First off,   looking at the head at address,  shape wise very reminiscent of the legendary JBeam BM 435 ( aka Crazy CRZ 435 ) .   I have not checked recent stats,  but at one point the BM 435 was the most popular driver used among Japanese Mid Am players in competitions.    I also noticed that the paint had some colorful glitter mixed in.  Adds a touch of bling to the overall look.      At 445cc,  it definitely looks smaller than the said volume due to the deep profile.   Looking at the sole,  I do like the new design where it uses a mix of IP finish and mirror chrome accents.   Nicely done JBeam!    Face milling is present on this model as well.   It is said to provide slightly lowered spin.  Click Read more to continue…

JBEAM Galpha Driver!


The all new JBEAM 445 GALPHA  – The forgiving players driver.  The user feedback has been outstanding.  The Galpha was released a couple of months back and has now had time to make its rounds.   The Galpha is a 445cc driver with a fade bias by design.  By adding a heavier weight to the heel you can bring the bias back to neutral and by using a lighter toe weight and closed face angle slightly promote a draw.  Follow the jump to view more angles…

TourSpecGolfers Main Gamer: ZY-11 + Seven Dreamers L01

JBeam ZY-11 Driver

With the ability to play any JDM driver and shaft Its not an easy task deciding on just one gamer,  too much switching has hurt my score in the past but on the flip side having access to a ton of different drivers over the last 13 years has helped me understand what I want and need to play my best golf.

In 2013/2014/2015 one brand has captured the big dog’s spot more than any and that’s Jbeam.  Not from bias but for the simple reason that they are Loooong and reduce spin significantly,  It started with the original 435,  then the Blackout 435 and for most of 2015 the ZY-11.  I currently own 2 Jbeam Blackout 435’s and 2 Jbeam ZY-11’s all four with Seven Dreamers Shafts installed,  before that the Basileus AAA in 50 & 60 Stiff & Regular tipped along with many other shafts from some of our top shaft companies and It’s not just me who owns multiple JBeams many of TSG’s members have more than a few and for some strange reason just can’t let them go.

Seven Dreamers Golf Shafts

So what’s new about my latest gamer?  Well for one the white finish yet the biggest difference to note is the Limited Seven Dreamers L01 Nishijin-ori Shaft,  This means all 4 of my Jbeam drivers sport seven dreamers shafts and thankfully my driving game and confidence has never been better.  Follow the Jump to see more photos and check out the specs on this shaft/head combo…

The New JBeam FW Ti Fairway Wood


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!
