The mid December release includes 4 black IP soles with white crowns in the form of a high launch shallower face low spin 460 driver, a mid launch deeper face low spin 430 driver, a fairway wood and a rescue. Stock shafts will be made by Mitsubishi Rayon and all top end Japan market aftermarket shafts are also available for custom order directly from TM Japan. The drivers feature a new 25g adjustable slider which is split into two weights for more versatility. The adjustable sleeve will allow for 12 positions with a 2 degree range of adjustability. The fairway wood uses one adjustable 22g weight and also has 12 positions and a 2* range of adjustability. The Rescue has no slider weight but does feature the speed slot with a low forward design and 12 positions with 1.5* of adjustability.
This is a Pre Order for Late December Shipping from Japan.
Why is the price higher in Japan? The standard shaft is of premium quality and materials while the upgrade shafts are true aftermarket top dollar upgrades such as the Diamana R60, UST ATTAS 6, Fujikura 661 Evolution, and new Tour AD MJ-6.
