Honma Golf Clubs
Honma stands like no other manufacturer for Japanese perfection and exclusivity. The latter even goes so far that you can spend a small fortune on a set of irons. On the other hand, iron sets like the Honma TR20 cost 1200€ and are therefore absolutely within the price range. For this money you still get handmade, forged irons from Japan. In the original and not as a replica as they are now so often found on the Internet. That also speaks for this manufacturer.
The Beres Series
The absolute flagship of Honma is still Beres. This series is available in two different versions: ladies and men. The Beres deliver a complete set of clubs that is perfectly matched to each other. Driver, fairway wood, hybrid, iron and wedges are all included. Even matching putters are available. But above all one thing is important: these clubs are designed in such a way that they are particularly easy to play - even for players with low club head speed. The shafts are extremely light and soft without sacrificing performance. This is unique and you won't find comparable shafts anywhere in the world. The shafts in combination with the extremely forgiving irons that simplify the launch make this a club that is second to none. However, a set of Beres is not cheap and costs at least 3,000€ depending on the model. But you also get the matching wedges and know that you don't compromise on quality.
Unlike Beres, the TR20s appeal to very good and professional players. Not for nothing are they played by Justin Rose, among others. For example, he uses the Rose Proto iron, which will soon be available at ExactGolf. Currently there are two TR20 irons: TR20 P and V. The TR20 V is also designed for sporty players and is not very forgiving. The TR20 P is a so called Players iron which is a double shell construction and forgives relatively many mistakes. All TR20 irons are available with a wide range of shafts - either from Honmas own Vizard graphite shafts or from leading manufacturers like Nippon, KBS, Project X, Dynamic Gold, etc.
There is also a TR20 driver in two different sizes and a wide range of in-house Vizard, FD and FP shafts in various weights and flexes.
In the course of the year the remaining TWorld clubs like woods, hybrids and wedges will be replaced with new TR20s. The TWorld range will therefore be discontinued in 2020 and replaced with TR20s.
Honma also offers a wide range of putters that appeal to all possible putt styles and can be customized to a certain extent.
