Funny how they class up the name on what amounts to the american version of Rocketballz for the Japanese market. TM must have a very low (yet correct) opinion of US buyers.

From a technical standpoint however, it looks like this is their draw biased version? (with the weight port toward the heel of the club) and they seem to have reduced the distance black portion on the sides - and given the sole plate a narrower shape...


Quick question: How often do the TM products seen in foreign markets make their way over to the states?
