Is there any noticeable difference besides markings? Are they more or less expensive?

Typically more expensive, in some cases, much more expensive. As far as what is offered; the JDM is very different than the ADM. Golfers there have different wants so they get different offerings. Golf is a big part of status and business in Japan (even more so than in the US) and combined with other elements of Japanese culture, you get some really great pieces that would never be mass marketed in the states. Look at the OP's bottom picture for instance, forged Vokey wedges. Those things probably cost $250 a pop. In addition to stuff like that, they tend to have many more forged offerings, more non-conforming equipment and some stuff that is just different than what is offered here. Finally, there is an artisanal aspect to the really high end stuff that you see less often over here. The old trope of , "samurai" forged blades is not without substance. Many of the villages that once forged fine samurai swords carry the tradition on in forged golf clubs. MGS has a terrific series called, "Know your Japanese Brands" right now. Check em' out! Start with Miura

VERY NICE!

Some of those JDM's have better paint jobs than a fully restored 68 Camaro.

Could tell some stories about the Japanese that used to pass through the Desert. But will say a guy who caddied of ther told me its all about "saving face", so when your buddy shows up with the new $2500+ set of Miura's or Honma's you better get on it.

Wild stuff!

That's a mix of two body styles.  I had a '65 Malibu SS.

My brother had the 66.   When I returned home from Nam I bought a 71 SS brand new for $4500.00.  I sent all my cash home to my folks and had the money to buy it outright.  My buddy who was over there bought a GTO and we roomed together for a couple years.  Hawt cars, hawt chicks, & good times!

Three top 66's in my opinion. Chevelle, GTO and 442. Good ole days, from what I can remember

It's funny because I had both a Chevelle & 442 but always wanted a GTO but never bagged one...   No doubt the 65 /66 GTO's were sexy machines!

I had the 66 SS 396 new for $3,600. Had a 65 Malibu SS years later along with a few others. Got rid of way too many cars that I want back .

Very nice clubs! This is the first I'm hearing of the JDM!

I bought a set of Honma sticks this year - big step up from my Callaway XHot 2's.
