They are awesome clubs. Not as soft in terms of sound and feel but it depends on your personal preference. If you add our issue shaft then it feels as soft as mizunos. Then MP4 will feel even softer with your issue shafts. I love 714 MB so much it's still part of my collection. Smile

Fujikura MCI shafts are metal composite carbon shafts where metal fibre is wrapped in the tip section of the shaft. It performs like a steel shaft without all the vibration. Ball flight is also highly controllable. However MCIs don't actually add any distance like traditional carbon iron shafts. Probably not for everyone, and I would also have to take it easy with iron swings.

Slow and steady. 
Sometimes there are good deals around.
My eqpt are used.

Some JDMs are good because of technology and materials.
Some can be voodoo (unknowns due lack of mktg).
Just got to try whether it suits you.

I still have a callaway utility 4. Hard to knock that one out.
But recently my Miura putter was knocked out of the bag by usdm TP Mills, just because it gave me more pars.

Flashpacker,

U are totally right, some of the JDM brands are really under-rated bcos of their branding with other sports I.e. Yonex (badminton), Bridgestone (F1 racing tires) etc. and we can't see much fanfare in such branding for it's too expensive to buy brand new ones.

I was gaming a while with the Bridgestone J40 b4 I stumble upon my current set of Yonex cyberstar CB iron. Thou it's on S200 shaft but due to its balance, it feels almost the same as the J40 which was on NS PRO 950 regular.

My whole bag are used, none are brand new.

Bro, you must have been just a step ahead of me for that set of  Yonex. Was told by the seller I am next if it was not collected that evening haha.

Agreed that many of these brands do not get the recognition they deserve in SG.

Exactly.

Yonex is under-rated. You can get good deals too.
Yamaha is also under-rated.
I thought they make motorbikes and pianos only!
