Summary: One of the best evermade by any company! Almost feel as solid as MBs but much easier to hit. I am a club junky with perhaps 15 different sets in the past four yrs from Miura cb, Honma new 606, Titleist 735(twice), Taylormade Tp combo, Taylormade TP MB, mp32, mp52 & mp58. This is my ultimate club overall and I have two almost new sets. My MP 58 with Project X is good but boring feel.I like how TP cb is better overall.
Summary: Having bought a set of RAC forged CBs with a very light Japanese NS Pro steel shaft I have played with them since 2004. Results are mixed as I love the feel and manouverability of the club, but have lost some 5-10 yards in distance. Of center hits are a real pain, but a oversize club head would not satisfy me as much as the RAC cb. I have switched now to the TM Tour Preferred 2009 irons and cant believe the improvement, inspite of not being forged irons anymore.
The RAC cb is simply good but old technology.

Summary: UNREAL. bought these at sports authority during inventory for 47 cents per iron.....47 cents no joke.
Summary: Got these clubs off ebay for a great bargin at $320. They have TT DG S-300 +1" and 2 degrees up. After about 10 range sessions to get used to them, I have now played three full rounds. Shot 79 today on a very tough course. I would never have been able to do this with my old sticks.
These clubs let you work the heck out of the ball. I used to never be able to work any club under 6 iron. Not any more. Today I drew a 9-Iron perfectly around some trees to set up a birdie.
They are suprisingly forgiving too. They look like blades at address but if you miss the sweet spot left or right you will not lose to much distance. Now if you catch them thin then you will pay.
Overall a great alternative to a blade. Thin topline yet forgiving.
Summary: Picked these forged cavity backs used for a steal for what they are actually worth. Came with DG S300 TP shafts. Changed to DG SL 200 and am hitting these irons way better. 4 and 5 iron shots are easy are easy to hit. All irons feel like butter on clean contact. Fairly forgiving but they will let you know if you miss hit, which is good.
If you can get a set of these japanese forged irons, get them. They hit good, long and look great BUT get the shaft fitted to your swing i.e. regular flex if you swing at 80-100.
