Maruman is suppose to be very good stuff. Look like Honma more than they used to though. They used to have simple beautiful forged clubs. Laura Davies played them for years.. Not sure what she plays now though..

Specs of top /sole look pretty close to any major/minor OEM.

Irons appear to share those same similar spec's of any other.

I do roll my eyes when I see "TOUGHEST" as an adjective for both clubs.

 

That said...Hey, if you've got that type of F/U money I'm fine with that setup.

It is a pretty looking set of sticks and God bless him if it gives him some confidence stepping up to address the ball.

OK, so they were decent to hit. What we really want to know is how were they when the driver hit one that would be OB and needed to be disciplined? That is the real test of the golf club.

I think these may have been even more pricey. I'll stick with what I have.

Funny, I COULDN'T hit that driver. It's only rated up to 94 MPH swingspeed. Either he couldn't get the club around, or he can't read.

In The Bag
Driver: TaylorMade M2 (2017) w/ Project X T1100 HZRDUS Handcrafted 65x 
Strong 3 wood: Taylormade M1 15* w/ ProjectX T1100 HZRDUS handcrafted 75x
3 Hybrid: Adams PRO 18* w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4 Hybrid: Adams PRO 20* (bent to 21*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4-AW: TaylorMade P770 w/ Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Black Onyx S400

SW: 56* Scratch Tour Dept(CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
LW: 60* Scratch Tour Department (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
XW: 64* Cally XForged Vintage w/ DG X100 8 iron tiger stepped
Putter: Nike Method Prototype 006 at 34"

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

usually the best players have the oldest clubs because they have always performed for them, if i had unlimited money and someone to sell them me i might buy something in that price range but not that ugly of clubs for sure
