A few of the expatriate japanese play these...serious hardware !! The other very popular brand amongst business men here is Honma; now they are NICE !! I have used their cbs and they are beautiful, but at over 4000 AUD they should be. I think I'll just stay with my AP1's.

G'day Rob, I suppose a lot of it is "in the eye of the beholder" . They are beautiful, very high quality clubs, would they save me any strokes-maybe one or two. I think it's a bit like comparing a BMW and a Rolls Royce. If you've got the money you might want to go for the Rolls if not then a BMW is more than enough quality.

It ain’t over till it’s over.

Dunno! I've always believed Miura were a quality product but they may be throwing TM their seconds.

I have herd TM do Miura's forging as well. Chinaalan, Could Honma's seriously save you a couple of strokes per round? What is the difference from any other top shelf iron? Seriously, Is this worth it??? http://www.ebay.com....#ht_3325wt_1002 I don't know to much about them, so Im just curious.

Raz I think they have made clubs under all sorts of names in the past for pros and the like see this http://www.precision...age/4435913.htm Rob I play off 14 so yeah maybe the coonfidence thing might come into the scene and I'd save one or two strokes. They just felt really really smooth, that's the only word I can use. I don't know about other really top notch clubs, these are as high as I have climbed up the food chain. Are they worth an extra 3400AUD over my AP1's ? Not to me; I can find other things to spend that sort of money on. If I had money to burn...no problem.

From what I understand they forge for the major brands top tier players but the names would never get released in a million years. In all honesty, even if they didnt I wouldnt give a frankenfurter, these irons are seriously good and not necessarily that overpriced. I paid around 219 a stick because I have played the gripmaster grips for a while and didnt want to change. Taking the Gripmaster out of if may have brought these down to possibly $190 a club which is not that much more that the OEM stuff kicking about

A friend of mine bought a set of VEGA bladed irons (project x shaft) - very, very nice golf clubs. He got them from ebay USA for 400USD! I have a set of HONMA Prancer FE-700 iron heads - they are all in various A flex graphite shafts, which i haven't got round to re-shafting. I think i will re-shaft one - and see if it is as good as the VEGA.

Got the miura blades, and been playing with them for 2 years.... great for the avid golfer (12 and below) otherwise frustations will always be there. But if you hit them on the sweet spot, they feel "better than an orgasm", as my club fitter in Singapore said.... ;) They are forged 14 times. Average off the rack taylor or nike blades are forged only ~6 times apparently, at molecular level, this creates a more solid impact....

I cannot in all honesty afford Muira,s but i have in my opinion the next best thing, "honmas"..they are full blades and hit beautiful,still have the occasional mis hits..but thats not the fault of the clubs lol....i also use ping quite regularly and there isnt any great difference length wise,the only thing i had to get done to honmas was lie angle to suit me,pings not so demanding of lie angle..i will say that there is quite a difference to the feel of honmas when ball bumps into sweet spot,nice.The honies have higher trajectory,but prolly shaft is reason.
