Out of Bounds: Real Japanese Beef

post-18-0-93875200-1458043332

You may have read the recent controversy that what many restaurants are saying is Kobe Beef are not actually serving the real thing.  In fact based on these articles only 8 restaurants are serving the real deal to their customers while the rest are BS'ing us in some way shape or form.  This recent bruhaha as led me to write this post.  Every photo in this blog post is 100% Authentic Japanese!

According to the Kobe Beef Association only 400lbs are allowed to be imported every month.  If the restaurant you are eating at says they serve Kobe Beef ask them to see the their certification from the KBA.  To read and in depth on Japanese Beef and see what 8 restaurants in the U.S are allowed to sell Kobe Beef Please follow the Jump...

2016 PRGR Titan Face Irons

PRGR Titan Face Irons2

PRGR 2016 Titan Face Irons - This week we highlighted many of PRGR's new club releases in the RS series. Everyone loved the RS Forged irons we posted on Monday but it is highly likely we will end up selling more of this Titan face model.  The general golfing public is looking for 2 basic qualities,  Distance and Forgiveness while the more vocal and maniac golfers found on the internets blogs, forums, and social media tend to desire a more purist and compact club.  This creates a conundrum for golf brands: Be the cool and support the keyboard warrior or go after the segment that caters to the larger pie, the recreational player.

Today we take a dive into what would help most mid to high handicappers scores the most,  a semi-game improvement iron thats easy to launch long with ease.  Follow the Jump for more comments and pictures...

Seven CB Prototype – Only 2 Sets Worldwide!


_DSC5168-Edit

Here is the latest SEVEN Cavity Blade Prototype - Only 2 sets produced hand made of Forged SS400 in Ichikawa Japan. We have released multiple variants of this cavity design adjusting the grind and shape along the way.  It is an Original CAD design that we are able to transfer to various head molds which allows for flexibility in manufacturing.  The cavity design itself allows for enough center mass to aid in forgiveness and feel yet not so much that it reduces workability.  By keeping the areas besides the center steps free of metal and slightly reducing perimeter weighting we have been able to blend the best attributes of a blade together with the forgiveness of a players cavity.  Follow the Jump for more photos and info...

PRGR RS-F Driver

PRGR RS-F Golf Club Driver8

Yesterday we showed you the RS Forged Irons now today the RS-F Driver.  There are two drivers in the RS series the RS and RS-F,  the "F" is the better player model.  Both are 460cc's with the same materials and base technology.  Where the differences are is the "F" has a 56* lie angle which will make many people happy it also has a 3.5* open face angle,  Ok before you run for the door the good news is PRGR measures their face angles different than other brands do.  It looks super square to slightly open and PRGR fans know not to be afraid of this.  Follow the Jump for more...

Bridgestone Tour-B Series now in the TSG Pro Shop!

Screen Shot 2016-08-23 at 9.10.29 AM

The Bridgestone Tour-B Series Golf Clubs have officially been announced.  While TSG has been posting news of this including in hand photos (here) this new pro line goes straight for the athlete low handicap player.  The first thing to notice is it reminds us a lot of TourStage and for those of you who are new to the Japanese golf scene TourStage is what Bridgestone used to be in Japan and at one time the #1 equipment company in Japan.  Overall the TourStage product was better designed with more features than the Bridgestone gear they would later rebrand to.  Not anymore as these new Tour-B's start off exactly where TourStage left off.  Impressive to say the least.

Another thing to take note of is that there are no adjustable hosels on these clubs,  If you look on Tour most of the players opt for a non adjustable version of a club and this is the case here.  Already all the younger athlete Bridgesteone staffers have switched over to the new line of equipment and as you can see below the bags look stealth too.  I have a quick break down of all the new clubs after the jump...

ITOBORI – Satin Finish Combo Irons

Itobori Golf106

The last set of Itobori Combo Irons we posted on TSG were very similar to these but in a gorgeous black mirror finish,  today here we have the brighter less glare prone satin finish to drool over. All Itobori irons and wedges ordered from TourSpecGolf can be custom made to your requests this has made them irresistible to many of our hardcore clients who just can't leave anything alone without putting their mark on it.  Add to that that the price includes these options and that these are 100% handmade in Japan by Mayuki Takai himself and backed by TSG's support, service, and suggestions  its one of the easier choices if your in the market for something special. In the above photograph your looking at Satin Itobori Blades with translucent blue paint fill.  This customer also requested the smooth sole + hariline option.

Itobori Golf140

You can order an entire set of blades or a combo including a cabvity back as seen below and include driving irons to replace the three and four.  It's up to you!  the options are endless!

It's been a few months now since we added Itobori to the TSG stable of brands,  we are firm believers in Mayuki Takai's work as many Tour Pro's in Japan have been as well.   I'd like to share some of the feedback our customers have provided after recieveing their Itobori irons,  be it CB, MB, or Combo sets everyone has been extremely happy with their purchases and the fact that we have sold a decent amount yet they are not found in the Buy/Sell/Trade shows customers are holding onto these at a high rate.
