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…
Above – a beautiful trailing edge grind shown.
Above – as you can see the toe is very sharp and extends just lightly past the left edge of the score line. The shape is what makes these irons special, Suda-san is one of the top 5 best grinders in the world no doubt, the perfection of each iron is on another level compared to other grinders hence why these carry a hefty price tag of $400 usd per head. With a base set of 5-PW the #3 and #4 irons are optional.
Above – the top line is razor thin, the offset is near nil, the high toe looks the part at address, there is nothing I would change at all, 100% perfect for the true blade player.
Above – the trend continues into the sole, it’s got a slight leading edge curve and a sole that is side enough to present good turf interaction on the course.
TSG will be pre-selling these right away to get a head start on getting them for our customers. Remember we are competing with the entire Japan market for these and 100 sets is not enough to go around.
