Honma TR20 Driver and Irons
Honma enters a new era with the TR20 series. For many years the TWorld or Tour World series was intended for the sporty players and there were also some Tour players who put TWorld clubs into the bag. With Justin Rose, Honma has made the first attempt to sign a well-known and very successful PGA player. And that Justin Rose also had a lot of influence during the development of the TR20. Of course he also plays the new TR20 clubs and trusts again in his updated Rose Proto irons, which were developed practically only for him.
Honma TR20 Driver
The flagship of the TR20 series is certainly the driver that appears with some new features compared to the TWorld driver. First of all the optics. Although the crown of the TWorld 747 driver was also made of carbon, in the TR20 driver the carbon is actually visible for the first time. Honma doesn't bother to hide it anymore, which in our opinion enhances the driver optically.
Also a novelty are the exchangeable weights in the sole. Honma offers its own weight set which gives the player a lot of possibilities to make adjustments. He can not only change the swing weight as he likes, but also the spin and launch and to a certain extent the direction by setting the driver to draw or fade.
The Honma TR20 driver is available as usual in the in-house Vizard shafts. The standard shaft is available in two different weights which also differ in the bending profile. Furthermore, the FD and FP shafts are available for an additional charge and there are no limits to your imagination. These shafts can also be ordered extremely heavy and hard - just like Justin Rose plays.
Honma TR20 irons: P and V
The Honma TR20 P iron is a real "players iron" and is aimed primarily at players who want to get the most out of their iron game without restricting themselves too much in terms of playability. The club face of the TR20 P iron is visibly smaller than that of its "predecessor" the TW747 P and the topline is also narrower. One cannot simply say that the TR20 P iron is a club that maximizes forgiveness. The TR20 P is more like a compromise. It gives the player good feedback on the stroke and gives him certain freedoms that are no longer available with thicker soles or larger club faces.
In contrast, the TR20 V iron is a club head that offers much more freedom in this respect. It is a modern cavity back iron that distributes the weight especially in the heel and toe area. This increases the moment of inertia and provides better stabilization for misses. The TR20 P is very similar in this respect and works with additional weight shifts to increase this effect. However, the TR20 V is rather classic and completely forged from one piece.
