Hey Guys. Hope you enjoy the photos. Here is my bag of goodies.
I'm sorry but I'm not sure how to write my commentary under each photo. The photo's aren't showing up when i attempt to. I guess i'll have to rely (and hope) my photos will speak for themselves, as visual representation can sometimes convey even more than script.

A BRIEF HISTORY :
I first came about Tourspecgolf around two years ago. At that time, I was still merely discovering not only the game of golf, but the beautiful, sometimes crazy world of golf equipment. Needless to say, TSG got me hooked!
Although it took a year before my first purchase of any type of J-spec equipment, the worth was very much worth it! I'll admit, i was skeptical at first as as to just how much of a difference J-Spec equipment could make to my game. You know how it is, hype tends to have a snowball effect. Regardless, i placed my order and waited impatiently for my equipment to arrive. When the big day finally came, i felt like i used to feel as little boy on Christmas day. I tore open the box and pulled out my first ever piece of J-Spec equipment. Beautiful new Epon Copper wedges. The first thing i remember thinking was just how incredibly beautiful these things looked. I remember taking specific note of the precision craftsmanship that trickles down into every piece of Japanese golf equipment. Needless to say, my future dollars weren't going to be spent in the likes of Golfsmith any longer!
Since that first purchase, i've slowly migrated solely over to J-Spec equipment. Like i'm sure all of you agree, there's just no going back. The feel is better, the wedges spin better, the shafts are smoother, the look is nicer, and mentally, i'll say it, it feels nice to own something, that on N. American Turf, is pretty rare.
I know own the incredible amazing feel Epon Technity driver in a 9.5 degree loft with a Roddio 7W X flex shaft.
My three wood is a Epon Technity with the super smooth Mach Line FW in X flex. Amazing combo!
My Hybrid is a 22 degree G-Field GFT with a Ozik Altus Hybrid shaft in X-flex
Wedges are Epon Copper, Technity (greatest spinning wedge i've ever seen), a Fourteen MT V3, and a Tourstage X wedge.
Putters range from the very acute Bettinardi's to the Hyper accurate Premium Zone G-Fields
I also use a Tourstage ball. Very nice indeed.
There is no doubt in my mind the game of golf has not only become easier since my transition over to J-Spec equipment, it's become more fun. Not to mention, TSG has forced me to pay more attention to my equipment and my equipment needs/specs. Somtimes that goes unnoticed.
Good luck to all you guys, i enjoy cruising this site daily, it's a very fun hobby!

P.S. I thought i'd include a picture of my cat since he is a Bengal, which is a half Asian Leopard cat, half tabby. Thought it would be fitting.

I think my favorite pic is the Epon driver with the Fourteen bag reflecting off its crown. That or either the close-up of the clete on the golf shoe.

No, the Epon with the Fourteen reflection!

Bengal is a sweet looking cat!!

Is that all for the pics? I'm sure that's only about a sixth of your total inventory of clubs! :tsg_smilie_smile2:

MD, some of these pics should be framed and hanging at a gallery. The decor in the house looks equally exquisite.

Do you or have you done professional or semi-professional photography, or is that just another 'passion' along with golf clubs?

Thanks man! I like photography but i've never done semi or professional work. I actually took all of those pictures with just a basic little Canon SD 700 compact powershot. I actually don't take pictures as often as i'd like to. I guess i'm too busy trying to figure out my golf game. Haha.
