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.

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?

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.
