On a serious note I'm just looking at all the options as I've only ever looked at Epon...

Eca, I was/am BUT I'm also looking into suitable alternative !

I've got a few demo irons coming to me, I'm more interested in getting the shaft right!

I've just replaced my Epon 301's with some CB-501's and I'm loving them.

I wasn't sure at first about the change as I had Miura CB-201's in the past and didn't like the feel off them plus the PW was just plain ugly so I binned them but the 501's are soooo much better.

Go for it!

  • What's in the Bag?:
    Callaway FT9 TA Fubuki Alpha

    Miura 54/9
    Scotty Cameron ButtonBack II
    Ping White Hoofer
I have just replaced my Miura CB501 with some Epon AF302

Reasons Why :

I needed change.
The pitching wedge in the Miura set is the ugliest club ever made.
The length from heel to toe is a little to long for my taste.
The epons HONESTLY had 15mph Ballspeed more than the Miuras

Miura 6Iron= 175yrd Carry Epon 6Iron= 190yrd carry (both w/ Nippon Orange)

The face on the Epons seems to me to be hotter and SOFTER.

+ The pitching wedge looks great.

And I needed change.

I've played MC-102s for four years, but I've no familiarity with other models.

MC-102s with Aldila NV Pro 105s, however, can play better than I can. That much I do know, so there's no rush to get them out of the bag.
And imagine being fitted for irons and hearing for the first time, Wow, the lie angles are flat enough just as they are!

Anyway, if you think four years is too old, I bought my Titleist PT fairway woods when I still had hair.
