Introducing the GTD Cross Forged Irons. Made of S20C forged carbon steel with CNC milled back face. GTD Golf – George Takei is the man behind many past brands from the Original Gauge Design Japan, G-Field, George Spirits and now head designer for GTD.
The fundamental design ideas behind the GTD equipment always start with thinking about things that can help his student Professionals, as well as trainees, score lower.
George Takei – “I want the workability of a muscle back along with maximum forgiveness built in the head.” Obviously, the feel needs to be exceptional and the design needs to be something that motivates the competitive mindset.
I consider these a mid-sized forged. cavity back, The cross forged is a very proportional in regards to offset, top line and sole width. The size would put it in the same segment as irons like the Miura CB-301, ONOFF Kuro Forged and other semi-game improvement designs.

GTD Double Forged Wedge
Made of S20C Forged Carbon Steel with a cnc milled face pattern this wedge features a very versatile grind and bounce designed to increase the chances of up and downs even from the most difficult lie conditions around the greens.
In order for the student Professionals and trainees to score better, we focused on the aspect of making the wedge look natural to the eye at address as well as the bounce specs. 48,50 and 52 deg lofts have a sole grind which grinds the trailing edge just the right amount to help with better distance consistency.
The 56 and 58 is design so that players can really feel the effects of the bounce. The grind towards the heel has a more rounded form to make it easier to open the face more when needed.
The GTD Double Forged wedge is a simple wedge design that incorporates much of the “player’s request” into actual shape.
In my opinion, the GTD Wedge is shaped at address very similar to the new SM7/SM8 Vokey wedges. Its spin is excellent thanks to the milled face and its feel is that fantastic soft forged feel of S20C.
