Both heads have great feel is very easy to work the ball. I would say that overall, the Baldo is better for tighter lies and off the deck shots. The Kamui is good off of the tee and trying to get a flatter trajectory to maximize run. Baldo compared to Kamui is easier to get up in the air, if that's what you are looking for.

thanks for the responses everyone, I am definitely looking for an all around fw, both off the tee and off the deck/fairway, i have no problem getting the ball up of the grass.

in terms of quality they both seem top notch, i am more concerned with optics, as i like a little pear shape as opposed to a round disk like the ryoma, previously played a 304p by rc.

between the baldo and the kamui custom is either one going to be of better build quality than they other? i know they are both on the $$$ side, so price doesnt really factor in, more so all around general playability and head shap, optics, etc.

I play Yamaha fairway 3 and 5 woods and LOVE them for all-around performance - tee and deck. Hot but solid feel, no ballooning, enough workability - absolute top quality.

Certainly one to consider...

Kamui all day by a large margin. Quality, fit and finish. When it comes to performance it must match your swing & specs not to mention shaft.

Baldo is easier off a tighter due to shape.

Yes Tats please add ONOFF Type S to the proshop. I think its AMAZING!
