    I am very Eager to receive these clubs however, Takomo has not been the best on communicating. They emailed me that they couldn’t use my PO Box to ship to. But that wasn’t even the first option. My first address was my physical address yet they are still saying they can’t ship to my PO Box which is fine. I don’t know if we are on the same page now or not. I have not received an email back from them since. I hope the process doesn’t take much time for me to receive the clubs.

    I ordered heads only (in stock) and received them promptly via DHL. I am having the heads put into True Temper Elevate 95 shafts that I had from some game improvement irons. I have yet to test them on the course, but based on youtube reviews, I expect a solid P790 comparator which I will use a backup or travel set. My only issues are that they don’t sell partial sets (I can’t hit a 4 iron, and will be putting the head for sale on ebay in a few weeks for someone looking for a driving iron or someone with enough speed to hit a forgiving four iron) and they don’t sell a gap wedge head by itself in either the 101 or the Skyforger.

    I received my Irons 101 in approximately 3 months. There was an issue with the shafts I had requested with my custom order. Once I received noticed of the shipment of my clubs it did not take long to arrive. I opened the box and had a really good inspection of each club and they are beautiful. I had the chance to go to the driving range 3 times and they felt smooth, solid and responsive in my hands. I just finished my first round with my new clubs and they really did feel great. You will not be sorry for ordering this set of irons 101. It was worth the money and quite frankly pretty close to my old ping irons I’ve used for 12 years. I can’t wait to play more rounds of golf to really get the feel and distance for each club. I saw a couple negative responses from customers about the company and I would say they were very truthful in time of delivery, etc. The only issue I hope they rectify is to communicate with their customer if there is problem or hang up why there is a delay in the order. Other than that, the irons are great.

    i have played about 8 rounds with these 101’s and they are the better than my Mizuno 921’s that were custom fitted. i am getting about 10 yards more per club and the accuracy is spot on. these are very well made and by far the best value in irons today. my guess is that the value derives from the direct to consume while by passing tariffs method of selling. these are $1,000+ value clubs delivered for about 60% less.

  5. Dennis (verified owner)

    Chose a set of 101’s that were in stock as they were pretty much the spec I was looking for anyway. They arrived in less than 2 weeks. Great looking, well made irons that I’ve played with three times, gaining a clubs distance throughout the set. The 7 iron flys as far as my old mizuno 6 iron and so on. Also chose a wedge which is equally as good. Towel and cap are a nice touch.
    On the downside, packaging could be better; there was a big hole in the box when I got them, with the clubs loose inside. A bit of bubble wrap would probably cure the problem.
    Nevertheless, I strongly recommend them. Any woods in the pipeline?

  6. Denver Robinson

    Ordering from Takomo is purely a Leap of Faith! Yes, it took a little over three months to get them. However, that being said, have faith! The clubs are as good as you hoped they would be. I’ve played three rounds with my new clubs and I can’t get the grin off my face. Imagen hitting an 8 iron on a 140 yd par 3, up hill and directly into a 25 mph wind, and giggling like a kid.
    I’m 77 years old and had quit playing golf for 10 yrs. I’ve been playing with 2008 Big Bertha’s. A good club for their time.
    Most important, the Takomo 101’s are as pretty as any golf club you can buy at any price!

  7. Ray Mattas

    I have only hit my clubs twice since getting them. I followed the custom fitting which was different than my previous fitting. Everything seems great so far. I love the weight of these clubs. Great forgiveness on off center strikes. I only give 4 stars not five because they are not quite as soft feeling as I expected. Feel great with soft golf balls but a little clicky on firmer golf balls. Good thing I play the soft balls. LOL.

  8. Christopher Tucker (verified owner)

    These irons are HOT of the face. I was using a set of Cobra Forged TEC Black. These irons feel every bit as good, with significantly more forgiveness and speed/distance. My only issue is I would have liked to get the KBS Lite shaft but was itching too much to wait for the backorder.

  9. James (verified owner)

    Absolutely love these clubs. Can not beat the price point and shipping came almost a week faster than anticipated!

    Waiting for the weather to improve in my area then finally getting off the mats at the range and into a course where I cant wait to see what I can do with these.

  10. Phil Boswell (verified owner)

    My second set of 101s. First set – KBS Tour 105 stiff – for my 4 hdcp son. Second set – KBS Tour 105 regular for myself. My son absolutely loves his 101’s gaining tons of distance and consistency over his Cleveland forged blades. I am seeing very similar results to my Ping G700 hollow body irons. Again, very long and consistent but at 1/2 the price. I purchased my set of 101’s to eventually replace my Pings as they wear and to have a travel set whenever I fly. (The airlines have not been kind to my golf clubs in the past.) I will have no issue eventually switching to the Takomo irons 100% of the time as they just as good as the big name, ultra-expensive hollow body irons (Ping, TM, etc).

  11. David john ellson (verified owner)

    fabulous to look at, really good to hit , great service ( the hat and towel was a nice touch ). My only complaint was the fact that nowhere was it mentioned about the import duty to be paid .

  12. Brad T (verified owner)

    Purchased the 101 irons about a month ago after much research and consideration between the 101 and 201. Irons arrived less than a week after order and were very well packaged. I am a 4 marker who has been a single figure marker for almost 30years and all I have to say is WOW!!. I used to play Callaway irons and went with the 101’s with the Tour 120 Stiff shafts and could not be happier. Irons are a smaller profile than my Rogue irons and just as forgiving. Perhaps not as long but the dispersion on all strikes is so much tighter than my previous set. They do give feedback on off center strikes, but when stuck out of the center the feel is exceptional. I can only give this final word to any low markers out there thinking of a purchase, don’t read into other reviews online about these being game improvement irons, if you love the look you will not be disappointed if you take the leap. Hat and towel real nice as well. Can’t wait for any new products in the future and will be looking forward to my next purchase.

  13. Homer Formentera (verified owner)

    I highly recommend this product. The looks are amazing. You cannot beat the price. It’s a very forgiving club.

  14. Bao V (verified owner)

    I would like to give a compliment to the 101 iron sets. It’s so good. Everything is good. As an average golfer, I have been struggling to find good iron sets to improve my game. I have to admit that the first reason why I decided to buy the set was because of its elegant appearance. But the result surprised me. I can feel the firmness in every swing, reduce heel/toe hit, and feel like hitting in the middle more. The ball flies better. Overall, 10/10. I have tried many iron sets, even from big brand names, the feeling is not as good as this 101 Irons sets I would say. And thanks for the cap and towel, I was planning to buy new towel actually

    I am a 16 HCP. Got my 101s with the KBS Tour 105 R shaft about 2 weeks ago. I’ve played 3 rounds with them and they have great feel. My distance has increased with these irons (still working on controlling this) compared to my old Cobra irons. Off center hits still go straight and I have not had any issues shaping shots. I can actually control the shaped shots better than my old irons. I can’t wait to start playing more with these irons and dial in my distances. I’m looking forward to lowering my HCP with these irons. I plan to purchase the wedge set in the near future. Overall, I highly recommend these irons for anyone looking for a customizable and forgiving iron set at a great price.

  16. Notsoclutch (verified owner)

    The ball comes off of these clubs singing just about every time. Despite owning some nice Taylormade irons in the past, I think these are the nicest looking irons I’ve ever owned too. I could not be happier with my purchase!

  17. Rob (verified owner)

    Horrible experience with this company. There was an issue with my irons and when I tried to return them, I was told that they were working on getting a US address for me to send back the irons. This went on for over a MONTH!!! Poor communication throughout the whole process – I would NOT recommend purchasing anything from this company.

    • Takomo

      Really sorry for the bad experience. We just got the US warehouse setup. We wanted to wait so that you would avoid the high shipping costs back to HK.

  18. Hugo (verified owner)

    Just played my first round with the 101 irons on Friday. Just wow! I am a “beginner” with about a 20 HCP after about a year of playing. Love the sport and been playing 2+ times per week. Since starting I’ve played the Wlson launchpad irons, then SIM MAX then PXG 0211 DC and now the 101’s.

    – Wilson – great total beginner clubs that are the most forgiving but have really high launch / spin.
    – SIM Max – Loved these. Good medium trajectory and distance was good.
    – PXG 0211 DC – Wanted to love these but felt really dead! Probably the wrong shafts as I got the graphite MMT- not a good combo for these irons. Low launch and good distance but hard to stick a green.
    – 101- Best i’ve played so far with medium / high trajectory but great distance and spin. Love the combo and looking forward to playing more with these.

  19. Wim

    I’m 57 yrs. old and have a WHS 6.9 hcp. Been playing Mizuno MP-60 with Nippon GH950 regular shafts for past 14 years. Due to lost of distance over the years I was looking for more distance and forgiveness. Condidered purchasing hollow body clubs. Stumbled on these Takomo 101. I thought they looked better then most major brand clubs and saw some positive reviews on the internet, so I gave them a try. Have played two round sofar and I can honestly say that I’m so very pleased with this set. When struck wel, they (also) feel like cutting through butter. If wanted, also able to shape the ball just as you would expect with forged irons. The KBS Tour 90 regluar shafts feel fantastic; lower then my previous Nippon GH950 R with short irons and higer flight with long irons. They are not wonder sticks, cause you still have to hit with a good swing to achieve good shots, as with any set of golfclubs. But when you do hit them well, flight on all irons is awsome. Thin hit or out of center shots are not severely punished.
    Delivery wasn’t speedy, but thanks to wonderfull communication with Takomo who were able to explain why, it was allright.
    I would recomment the Takomo 101 to the fast majority of golfers, specially to those who think they are “too good” for game improving irons like these. Trust me, you’re not! The majority are weekend warriors, like me, and will enjoy the beneifits that these clubs offer. I’m absolutey pleased with this set. If you have any questions about the 101, do not hesitate to ask.

    Got my 101’s with the KBS 105 stiff, a few weeks ago, since it’s winter where I am have only got to try them out on a simulator, but they perform great. I can’t seem to hit anything but a baby draw or a straight ball, so forgiveness is at a premium. Distance, seems to be about the same as my old irons maybe a few yards longer. Looks are great, look as good or better than I thought they would. Can’t wait until spring to get them out on grass. I was fitted for P790’s last year but the numbers I’ve got on Trackman are actually slightly better with these.

  21. Pete C (verified owner)

    I purchased the 101 irons because I wanted to improve my game. I was playing super improvement clubs and wanted better! I ordered the irons and waited. When they came they were beautiful! Well packaged and the hat and towel were a nice touch.
    I have to admit, looks were sexy and all that but I did not hit them well. I was adjusting from a lite graphite shaft and regular flex. Now I am swinging a steal stiff shaft. I had the clubs fitted to me and have played a lot indoors.
    I would love to say that I hit the clubs well instantly but that’s not what happened. But what did happen is with a little work and a great set of clubs within 10 rounds I hit my first ever round under par!! (-1 70) and the next round a 76! I am a 15.1 handicap to start the year, but will be dropping quickly with these clubs in hand! Soft feel, easy to shape, straight hitting and more than a club longer on every hit! Oh, by the way, the wedges are fantastic too! I just added them to my bag!!! More than looking forward to this year of gold in Wisconsin thanks to the Takomo 101’s!!

    Irons are exceptional for the price, the value is truly amazing. Looks, feel, distance, and overall performance are immaculate. Very responsive on strikes, and very forgiving without sacrificing much distance. Went with the 105 Stiff Shaft and they feel phenomenal. Does go about a club up compared to the Mizuno MX100’s I was gaming previously. Hitting 7 iron what I used to hit my 6 ect.

  23. John

    Ordered the Takomo 101 on 5/11/21 and got an email saying that the irons were ready to be shipped 26/12/21 and due to no fault of Takomo, finally got the irons 14/2/22. Irons were made in Shunde, China and due to the shipping backlogs and limits in China, it was shipped to Hong Kong before it was sent out. Amazingly once FedEx got their hands on it, it only took 4 days to reach Australia.
    I am currently gaming the 2019 Taylormade p790 TT DG 120 stiff and I found the Takomo 101 KBS Tour 105 Stiff much better than the p790. The irons are really powerful and has a straight and high ball flight but 1/2- 1 club longer distance than the P790. I found that the 4 and 5 had a really big offset but I was able to get used to it. Overall was quite pleased with this purchase.
    In hindsight though I think I may have been more more suited to the Takomo 201 with KBS C Taper stiff. I found the 101 similar to the TaylorMade SiM irons in terms of the head size, sole width and offset. The 201 would be more comparable with the P790 but that’s the pitfalls of buying something sight unseen.

  24. David (verified owner)

    Got these irons a few weeks ago and Ive been playing them at a simulator as it’s still winter here. They are exactly what I want out of my irons, slightly more distance and the forgiveness off miss hits are confidence inspiring. Not to mention the looks of these irons are incredible. The shipping was delayed as well because of a supply issue but they responded very quickly to emails and were able to modify my order and I received the clubs the following week.
    All in all it’s been a pleasant experience playing with these clubs I would highly recommend them to anyone.

    Just received and gamed my (leftie) 101 irons for the first time..they’re brilliant.
    Look great..play long and the stopping power on greens is exceptional.
    Took time to deliver but the Takomo guys communicated really well and kept me informed.
    Highly highly recommended

    Just got my 101’s. Unfortunately still winter here, so no on course review as yet. Just wanted to say the clubs are gorgeous. Well built, love how they present at address. They feel solid and feel heavier than other clubs which for me is confidence inspiring. Order was delayed due to supply chain issues, however Takomo did offer an alternate set of specs to build on had I wanted them to. So I am also pleased with the level of service provided. Can’t wait for the snow to melt or at least get on a simulator before the season starts.

  27. Jared Parsons

    Having taken a 2 year break from golf I decided to spoil myself to some new clubs to celebrate the return back to the game I love. After endless hours of research and online pricing examples I was drawn to the Takomo iron 101. And all I can say is wow! The play and feel like forged irons, great distance control and feel. I’m honestly blown away especially when one considers the price is conservative 50% of the bigger brands. Thanks Takomo for giving us a great iron at a great price!

  29. Chad (verified owner)

    I’ve have had my 101’s for about a month now. My first impressions were wow these clubs are beautiful in person. I was a little leary about ordering from a fairly new company and overseas at that but I have to say Takomo was great. Communication was good and shipping was faster than I expected. Clubs were wrapped well enough to avoid any shipping damage but not quite the presentation you’d get from buying irons that cost 3 times as much. But they did include a hat and a towel.

    I got mine with the KBS 105 stiff shafts and ball flight is mid-high…a little higher than my previous Ping gamers which are mid. The 101’s are very solid on well struck shots and not clicky at all. Poorly struck shots will penalize you a bit as with any iron…but not quite as bad as my Pings did. Thin shots do still get some pretty good length.

    They hit slightly more than one club longer than my more retro lofted Pings so I have flown a few greens trying to dial them in. They also spin like my Pings did because I get similar green interaction with the 101’s.

    I considered several different direct to consumer clubs and companies before I purchased. I’m not sure there’s another iron out there that can match the looks and performance of the 101’s for the price that Takomo is offering them for. Very happy with my decision.

    Well arrived eventually but not disappointed took them range Friday fantastic went golf club for a lesson Saturday people thought they were blades lol
    coach thought they were a good club but didn’t believe the price a little heavier than my cobras but a good club

  31. Arthur Cooper (verified owner)

    101 Irons these are great clubs I’ve used all the top OEM brands over the years these are up there with all of them
    TXG & James Robinson were right you couldn’t do much better for the price

  32. Hugh

    Waited for 2 month for delivery but it worth it. I was looking for hollow body clubs with a stronger loft than my previous ping I200. These are perfect. As good as any high profile brand. High quality head, shaft and grip. Yardage is consistent I can still shape shots if needed. My pro loved them and couldn’t believe the price.
    Very happy. Note that as with any hollow body the feeling is very soft but doesn’t give as much feedback as a full body.

  33. Col (verified owner)

    These irons are excellent. Got mine a few days ago and have hit a few hundred shots on the simulator. Seriously pure and premium clubs. These are pretty workable for a more forgiving design, but don’t punish mis-hits too terribly. The looks are unreal too. Dude at the simulator was commenting on it saying how clean they look. Definitely the total package club

  34. Todd

    I just purchase the 201 Irons and literally was pulling off the plastic covers on the tee boxes and before each shot. I’ve had several forged clubs before including the Titleist 718 AP2 iron. Loved the accuracy and feel but I’m getting older and the distance wasn’t there for me. These new 201 irons are long maybe a bit to long but the feel and accuracy are unbelievable. I hit the pitching wedge 144 yards. I had to order the wedges to match the irons. Haven’t receive the wedges yet but hoping there a perfect addition to the irons. Will report on them as well. These 201 irons feel amazing with a very forgiving feel with feedback on every shot. I can shape each shot even though I mostly fade shots. Looking to bring in the draw with these guys. I love the look from every angle and they just bring a confidence to every swing when standing over them. It was exactly what I was hoping they would be, great feel with more distance than the standard forged clubs. I even have quality grips and shafts going with the KBS C-Taper 120 stiff. I read many reviews on this shaft and I went with them anyway only to find there amazing. Probably should have went with the C-Taper Light but maybe next round…No regrets!

  35. Charles

    Received them a few weeks back now, impressed with the quality, bonus towel and cap was a nice touch, hoping the wedge set comes out very soon. First hit yesterday, and they were great, cant wait to get my swing back into where it was…….
    Thnx Takomo Golf!!!

  36. Arnold v BH

    Club champion matchplay with these irons, after having them two weeks in my bag.
    Fantastic👍😁😁

  37. Odd A Bergset

    Just love the clubs, sound is amazing and they looks great. Make better shots because the feeling of confidence when addressing the ball. At average I need one club less for the same distance as my old Titleist AP1 .

  38. Feridnand Tolentino

    Excellent iron !!!! I hit 150 with 7 iron with this I was hitting.160 with consistency …. big bang for the buck….

  39. Pete.

    The 101s are a brilliant set of clubs. Have nothing bad to say about these irons. All I can say is get a set you will not be dissapointed! Well done Takomo. Wedges out soon and a must for me.
    Pete.

  40. Arto Kiiskinen (verified owner)

    Clubs are very pretty, and incredibly easy to hit. First time I went out I par’d 6 out of 7 first holes (hcp 12) ! I was actually surprised at the ball going exactly where I was aiming. The gapping of the clubs is nice too.

    If there is a downside, it is quite difficult to hit strong slices or hooks, should you need to. The ball only wants to go straight 🙂

    very happy and will spread the word.

  41. fred

    These irons are perfect for me! They look good and I got about one club extra distance compared to my old titleist irons. My miss is usually a thin shot, but these have turned the thinned low shots playable with decent trajectory.
