QUESTION! Which Japanese Golf Brands Would You Like To See Sold in the States?

Recommended Posts

MGS,

 

I wanted to know what Japanese brand golf clubs you would like to see sold at our store or here in the states. We are currently expanding our Japanese Golf Club selection and wanted some insight.

 

We already carry a large selection of Japanese Clubs that can be fully customized from the grip,shaft and ferrule but we want more!

 

Epon, Honma, Vega and some other manufactures are in our minds currently and a bunch more so let us know what your thoughts are.

 

Your opinions are always appreciated :) :)

I would also think that San Diego is much like Vancouver in that a lot of people will walk in off the street and purchase JDM clubs given the population demographic, which could work out well for you.

Heck, I saw 2 sets of $80k Marumen clubs get sold in Richmond smack off the shelf last week like it was nothing.

I totally agree with you and thats why we carry a lot of Japanese brand golf clubs here at our shop and in our warehouse. We actually have demo clubs of ONOFFS, FOURTEENS,MIURAS,YONEX and other brands for people to try out on the launch monitor which is very rare to see.

 

Wow! $80k is amazing. We have had some customers come in and buy a full set for around $15k

 

I hope whoever sold the $80k got some commission haha

I love the choice in brands, some very basic and functional, others really wild but all with a keen eye for detail and color. Pretty cool.

Any plans to carry Geotech?

 

Since their price points - for iron and wedge heads, at least - tend to create less sticker shock compared to other Japanese brands, wouldn't it make sense to carry such products? Especially considering how today's economy is still not the greatest.

I'll look into Geotech and see what we can do. You have a great point.

I'd be happy to see EPON, MIURA and the Japanese versions of the US manufacturers. TaylorMade, Titelist and others have Japan Only sticks that should be sold here for those who like those designs and feel there is a difference in the models.

Hello Kitty is still pretty big in Japan. Check on Ebay sometime, you'll almost always find PLENTY of Hello Kitty golf stuff.

I thought I had some money invested in golf equipment but 80,000.00 in one bag you would need to have a Tiger Woods SC original putter to get even close. Unless these irons are forged out of gold and if they were they would be the softest irons available. :P

How does Mizuno stack up against these other Japanese companies with regards to their forgings, styles, quality, etc.?.....

 

That's sort of a tough one. Mizuno's off the rack we get here in NA are great but I would say they aren't held to the same attention to detail as you get when you're purchasing Miura's, Epon's, etc. However you're paying a fair bit extra for said attention to detail.

 

Now in turn Mizuno has their Yoro department which is their custom studio. If you're ordering from there, they stack up with any other iron you can get, but again, at a much higher cost then standard Mizuno offerings off the rack.

Absolutely, it's just that "off the shelf" means something different to some of the OEM's out there. An off the shelf set tends for some JDM clubs tends to feature things we in NA only attribute to a good custom build. No having wonky loft, lie angles or swing weights for example or already sorted shafts for proper set progression, tip weights added, right on spec head weights, etc etc.

 

So you can go pick up a set of 69's smack off the rack. You can also get a set of 69's from the Yoro department and have them alter the offset, sole grind and which logo's you want on their.

Would be great to have those available for demos......
