After reading (mostly internet) review... it seems Endo and Geotech are two forging house for most Japanese OEM brand..

Trying to get more info about GeoTech (as they produce their own brand)... seemed their web page is mostly Japanese (yes already tried to translate and did not help)

Anybody has more info on this brand?

thx

Supposedly by Tom Wishon

-quote-

GeoTech is a Japanese based component company that is owned fully by one of the largest of the clubhead investment casting factories in the world named Dynamic Precision Casting Corp. Dynamic is also the oldest of all the Asian based clubhead production companies, having started in 1972, and is presently ranked either 4th or 5th largest in the world in their production output - around 4 million heads produced for many different golf companies all around the world. From 1981 to 1989, Dynamic owned 50% of Dynacraft Golf Products Inc - the company I served as president of from 86 to 93 that recently folded and was bought out by Hireko. It was during this time I was with Dynacraft that the owner of Dynamic saw potential for starting a component company in Japan, and thus founded GeoTech. At present, I believe GeoTech is the largest of the few Japanese component companies. Dynamic designs and makes most of their clubhead models, so the quality of the head models that GeoTech offers is very good. FYI, Dynamic is one of the largest suppliers of heads to Taylor Made, Wilson and several other OEMs in the US so they know their craft and have been very successful in the field for a long time.

you can google Dynamic Precision Casting Corp.....its is a taiwan based company. i have met some of their designers in a factory visit years ago and some are japanese, others are not......ask yourself again.....where is taylormade made? Japan, i don't think so......

here're the links.

Dynamic Precision Casting

Dynamic Precision Casting Co Info

now why would Mr Wishon wants to say its Japanese????

However its true that Geotech is a Japan based component company. but the owner is not Japanese and certainly not every product is made where its based. Most club manufacturer in PRC knows that.

i have several sets of Geotech which i purchase from the factory which it was made and this was purchase with the approval of Geotech executives after an exhibition in China.

recently there were big fiasco about MIC products masquerading as MIJ. i hope this will not have the same effect of a blowup.
