I've been struggling with the driver lately and therefore itching for a new one. And last week I cracked the shaft on my Machspeed. So I wandered into the local Golf5 and proceeded to hit everything they would let me. The only things I hit worth a crap were a Tourstage ViQ SR flex (used), a R9 460 Max S flex (or maybe just R9 Max), and a Tobunda GT460 S flex. I ended up buying the Tobunda. I know it's the Golf5 house brand, but does any body know anything else about it?

Here's the specs:
Tobunda GT 460
9.5 degree
Fukijura Rombax 501-D 54 gram Tq 4.6 Mid kick shaft

I was hitting it around 245 on the Bridgestone Science Eye monitor. Best of the lot. I have been hitting around that range with my Adams Speedline, shorter with the Machspeed. Anyway, it's a nice traditional shape driver, sets up nice. Seems like a quality product. And it was cheap for a Japanese driver. Only 19800 Y ($235 right now).

Yup Golf 5's house brand... which is why they push it so much as nobody else really carries it. Made in China and considered more of a budget brand, bit hey if it works for you, that's what counts.

If you have questions about J-Spec equipment or need recommendations or fittings, please send me an email at gocchin@tourspecgolf.com (email is best)
