During today's social media surfing I came upon Zestaim irons by Kyoei Golf. The clean lines really caught my eye but they are an unknown to me and just seeing who knows what about them.

 

Kyoei Golf Industry Co. LTD

As we celebrate our 50th Anniversary we'd like to say 'Thank You' to all our clients. For 50 years we have produced the world's finest forged iron club heads here in the Ichikawa-cho Hyogo prefecture in Japan. Our town is the original manufacturer of golf clubs in Japan.

 

From the beginning we set out to create the perfect golf club, producing clubs that meet our customer's stringent demands and tastes.

 

 

Forging, grinding and plating are all processes we control within our own factory. Each process for each club is controlled by a master craftsman. This degree of attention to each individual club is essential to make the high quality club our customers demand.

Wow, I thought these looked nice, but I believe I will buy Mizuno clubs already assembled and save my money.  21,000 Japanese Yen = 215.661 US Dollars.  or a complete set of heads 3-P for $1725.28 plus set of shafts.  Oh yeah, a complete set of Best Grips because it would be foolish to put anything else on them. 

 

Oohh, I wonder if I should putt Purple Python or yellow Alligator grips on them?

Those are nice looking but I don't think I will ever pay that much for irons, unless I was rich but even then I would probably stick with Mizuno or something.

Believe brands like Yururi are using their blanks as well. Kyoei forged irons are known for their soft feel.....

 

I'm currently gaming a set of Yururi Flatback raw !!

Nice looking irons! The Fi-3 model reminds me of my old Macgregor M685 set; solid. Too rich for me.

They look good but like Kenny they are too rich for me. Sorta straying from the subject but if you notice the first picture they must not have a version of OSHA in Japan the guy polishing is not wearing any kind of eye protection. OSHA would be all over that here!! Oops sorry I strayed from the subject at hand

I've seen these in person, JP used to play them until he had his own irons. I believe he could order them in heavy blanks for grind purposes too. They looked incredible but too much iron for me. I'll see if I can find the pics for ya MBP.

Whats the difference between standard/strong loft and proto/basic loft (aside from loft?) that warrants the about $150 difference.
