So yes we (Akira USA) have an office/warehouse in the US and we are solely focused on tour support. Jeff is doing an excellent job so far and he is a good man. We will be selling our prototype series to select fitters and retailers later this year. All our Prototype series clubs are created per request from tour players, so we only produce minimum required from the factory. Most of the heads go to the tour, then whatever is left will be sold to our partners (retailers and fitters). Since we make smaller batches of everything, we can be very aggressive with performance. We inspect our products very thoroughly so tour players have the zippiest wedges and hottest drivers. That means consumers can buy the same thing. In a way, we do it the other way around……the right way some say. We produce tour prototype products and sell the same to retailers. Most companies design consumer products and tour stuffs come from there.
Anyway please contact me for any club questions. I will do my best to answer. Please check out my blog for Akira USA http://akiraprototyp…o-pga-tour.html
