If it was all about a better forging process, I'd still have Mizunos in the bag from 2-iron through Lw. Sometimes it's about scoring. If someone likes their Miura sticks and is happy with the scores they're shooting, go for it. I seem to shoot a couple strokes less with my Clevelands and their lame-o "form forged" irons. And cast wedges : (

Which is what I established earlier.

In fact, it was the whole point of my post.

I played a round recently with someone who claimed to be a low single capper and who also played with a set of Miura blades, and well I can honestly say that the Miuras were not some magical, mythical, amazing clubs that left me wowed. The guy played like crap despite playing with Miuras (who knows if he was really a low single capper, I thought he was more like a 12 or so capper), so what is the point that i'm trying to make? The point is, there is not "greatest of all" set of clubs. The Miuras obviously didn't elevate this guy's game.......sure he could have had a bad day, but he could have just as easily have had a bad day with any other set of clubs. Ultimately, your golf game will be determined by YOU more so than what clubs you are using.

Think the better you get the more you notice....... As I get lower and better in game I have started to feel slight differences in general...... That's where I believe JDM clubs or higher end equipment come into play..... I have hit Miura, fourteen, and many mizuno's and there is a difference.... Neither is really better just different.....the JDM has higher standards I believe.... Mizuno also has a custom dept through tour spec golf and I am sure those would be very close to other JDM clubs..... Also I believe mizuno Japan uses S20/S25 steel instead of 1025...... Most of the JDM clubs are S20/S25 steel...... But yes you pay for quality They have forging houses in Thailand, china but the standards and quality control is same supposedly Endo forge doesn't really mean anything...... They forge to manufacturers specs...alot of clubs are forged there but there is a budget limit set so what you pay for is what you get......you are not going to get a $2000 set of forged clubs for $700 at golf galaxy even though both are forged at endo Endo has many different levels and quality of steel........ A forged 8620 steel isn't going to feel like S20.....no matter what you do, but pretty sure endo forges with 8620 for manufactures if they spec'd it out My next set of customs is Epon...... Endo's premium baby!....... After seeing quality everything at roger dunns looks and feels cheap.. ( aside from mizuno)

Never played a Miura, However, I perceive it as the Ferrari of the Golf club heads. And I think we should not compare Miura to anything else. Miura is like the ultimate experience while a BMW is a truly unique driving experience. Or a Fiat is great to drive and Fix It Again Tony :-) Ar the end it is a matter of what mony can buy for owning and the mindset & passion

You should try Miuras sometime.  You might find that they are nothing special other than a hyped up brandname stamped on the back of the club.

I can't see anything. What's up with all this fog? Oh, it's the irony - it's getting thick in here lately!

LOL!

What are you saying Mr. Desmond?

Surely, the grain-flow forging is more than hype

I'm saving up for a set or Witch-forged irons.

The set I have now was forged by trolls and I can only use them at night.

Youve never seen me claim that Mizunos were crafted by the hands of God, like you often see people say when speaking of Miuras.  Sorry but Ive hit Miuras and theyre nice.  However, are they the magical golf clubs that some people make them out to be?  Nope!  To me, the feel of them is too firm, much like Bridgestones (also nice irons).  I'll keep the soft feel of my Mizunos, thanks.

When a guy with "MIZUNO" plastered all over his avatar and signature speaks ill of Miura, I mean, let's face it, you will lack credibility.

I've owned several sets of Mizuno and Miura - clubmakers like Miura because their specs are exact. Mizuno? Not so much unless you go "Tour," from what I understand. I know a club maker who decided to carry Mizuno, but only after he was assured that they would hand pick his clubheads for spec.

As to feel, some Miuras feel more dense, other feel soft. I had a set of Miura 301/Nippons that were as soft feeling as Mizuno.

They are both fine irons - I like the simplicity of Miura but would also buy MIzuno again. In fact, the new MP T4 wedges felt solid and the satin finish is pleasing.

Seems he's making the progression to Miura's.  First he was Titleist, now Mizuno, next logical step is Miura.  I predict a new name and avatar in the future.

You've repeatedly ignored simple facts in the pursuit of your belief in all things Mizuno. You've swallowed their marketing hook, line, sinker, rod, reel, and the fisherman attached.

Mizuno makes great clubs - but great clubs are not exclusive to Mizuno as you commonly make clear that you believe.

LOL...Wow.  I havent said that ONLY Mizuno makes great clubs and everything else is junk.  Everyone makes great clubs infact, I simply prefer Mizunos.

I really don't have a strong opinion of this because I can't recall much specifically of your previous opinions, however, your preference is pretty obvious.  There are nine (yes, NINE) big bold MIZUNOs in your avatar/signature.

I'm not going to make fun of your allegiance, but if I see somebody with that stamp comparing Mizuno's to anything else, I won't consider their opinion too strongly because I can't tell how much of it is clouded by their fandom.

And for my part, I've never hit Miura's so I have no comparison, but the Mizuno's I've tried are very nice.  (I just wasn't consistent enough to warrant getting them ... I needed a little more forgiveness)

No arguement that I prefer Mizunos.  So what?  What most people dont know is that I try everything and my opinions are based upon personal experience, not mere blind brand loyalty.

    • Bryson DeChambeau hits a drive even he hasn’t hit before  
    • I got a new net and mat so I can do some testing with the Mevo this off-season. I want to have a much more accurate understanding of my carry distances. I will hopefully do some work with the driver as well. I will also be able to continue some Evolvr lessons into the spring, and then just do monthly checks throughout the summer with my instructor to make sure I am not regressing with any of the priorities. Second part of the Mevo work is to figure out which 3 of these clubs will make the bag. I plan to also keep a standard 4 iron and will get some numbers on that. I only have 2 wedges after my PW so I have room for three clubs. I’d rather have the versatility up at the top end of the clubs anyway. I’ll try to get some numbers and post them here to make the decision on which 3 clubs I will be keeping in the bag. Lofts are 20, 19, 18 and 15.5.
    • In the US the threat is about 69 deaths per 100,000 population (Johns Hopkins University). Pretty small but expect it would increase some if we just unlocked everything.  I am not in favor of lockdowns, they do more damage than the virus would do.  I am in favor of reasonable (problem is who defines reasonable) restrictions on some activities.  In the specific case of golf, I mentioned what is being done in this area in my first post.  Seems like these are reasonable and not much of an effort for the courses to do. 
    • Employees must not be too happy about the move. Unlike Orlando, golf in Connecticut is extremely poor to non-existent December through March. Hope they bring their indoor golf simulators with them.😉
    • I just use my iPhone. There are adapters for tripods. Others just mount their phone or camera on their bag. Bag height is good because it’s hand height. In a practice session, I will set up either face on or down the line and check camera angles. DTL I will lay a club along my toe line and aim the camera there. Then I film that side. I will do driver and 6 or 7 iron and maybe wedges. Then switch to the other view and repeat. It takes a little practice, but once you’ve done it a few times, it’s easy. Try not to fuss about getting a perfect swing. Ones that feel good or bad actually look pretty similar. You want your Evolvr instructor to see what you have. I will set up, but not film until I’m warm and ready to film the drill or swing. Lastly, trim the video down. I post it to YouTube and just put the link in Evolvr. You don’t have to worry about file size that way. I post as unlisted and full HD.
