The predecessors were called IS-05, IS-06, S-06, etc., respectively. Honma has now given up this numbering and rating. The new Honma Beres are only called Beres and they are available in different stars and shafts. With the shafts the weight varies so that one can deal very well with the individual player. The best thing to do is let us advise you.
Honma Beres Driver 2020: The S-06 successor
The new Honma Beres Driver has an even stronger anti-slice orientation than its predecessor. The offset and face position make it very difficult to actually hit a slice. And that's the mistake that Beres players usually have to deal with. For this reason alone, the Beres Driver is already convincing. The clubface of the new Honma Beres Driver also features the famous Honma logo. The club head also contains a lot of chrome - both of which make this driver a very noble club that you would like to leave well packed in the headcover.
Honma masters the interaction of club head and shaft like no other company. And that's exactly what's so decisive for a driver. Because with a driver you reach the highest club head speeds. This tends to result in more twisting in the shaft. In short: the shaft moves during the swing in directions in which it should not move. This is very noticeable with manufacturers who use bad shafts (like 99% in the golf industry). It is advertised with the latest system to change the loft and that the new XY Driver is 20m longer. If that were true, we would have broken the 400m mark with driving distances a long time ago. Obviously we didn't. But the marketing works. This means that these manufacturers don't care much about the quality of the shafts and the harmony with the head. Honma does it differently and that's why you get the best possible quality with the Beres Driver.
What makes the built-in shafts so special is that they are soft and light but still have little "torque" - these are the twists in the shaft that you don't want to have and that ensure that the ball flies in all possible directions. The higher the number of stars chosen, the lower the torque. However, the 2-star version of Beres is sufficient for most players and offers a shaft quality that is far superior to the competition.
So the Honma Beres Driver is for players with low to medium clubhead speeds who don't want to compromise on quality. What they get in return is the otherwise unattainable Japanese craftsmanship. The shafts are drawn by hand and are only used if they meet the high quality requirements. Every Honma club is checked by us before it gets into your hands.
The driver is available in the lofts 9.5°, 10.5° and 11.5° as well as in 2, 3, 4 or 5 star shaft variants with different flex and weight options. Namely at 2* with ArmRQ 7x with 47g, at 3* with ArmRQ 7x M400X in 42g or 47g. The shafts of the 4* and 5* drivers are also available in 42g or 47g as ArmRQ 7x M400X T1100G.
Buy the Honma Beres Driver online
If you want to buy your next driver online, there are a few things to keep in mind. However, Honma makes the selection of its Beres clubs as easy as possible, which means that you should not be overwhelmed with options.
Shaft options for the Beres Driver
This already starts with the shaft for which there are not many options. Other manufacturers overwhelm their players with a variety of shafts, most of which make no sense at all for the respective group of players. Honma does this differently and only offers its own ArmRQX. However, it comes in four different weights and different flexes. The options are already optimally adjusted to the respective target group, i.e. you can only select the weight and flex options that actually make sense.
The basic rule for the shaft is that the selected weight should be based on the clubhead speed. The higher the clubhead speed, the heavier the shaft should be. Very high speeds are ignored because the Beres series is not aimed at professionals or very fast swinging amateurs. This is what Honmas Tour World Series is designed for. If you are swinging over 80mp/h with the driver you should already consider the heavy variants.
However, this topic is quite complex and we would advise you to discuss the topic briefly with us. You can reach us at any time via email, phone or live chat.
Stars and shaft quality
The shaft quality depends above all on the number of stars selected. However, it must be said that the 2-star version is also of very high quality and already significantly better than most other manufacturers. Most of them only use OEM shafts which are called the same as the originals, but are still none. With Honma this is not the case and with the Beres only the own shafts are used for which Honma has already made a name for itself.
If you choose 3 or more stars you get an even better quality and the club head looks somewhat different, sometimes more luxurious with gold inserts e.g. In the end, however, it's the shaft that counts and how much torque it "produces". These are, roughly speaking, the twists that can push the ball in the wrong direction. Honma knows how to keep it as small as possible like no other company and still build such light and soft shafts.
The shaft length should not be chosen without consideration. It is important to note that a change always has an influence on the swing weight. In addition, a longer shaft is always a case for "Honma Custom", which means that Honma itself makes the adjustment and accordingly the delivery time is 8-10 weeks. We can always shorten your shaft, but please note that it can not be extended afterwards. Therefore, please talk to us in advance. It would be a pity for this wonderful club if it does not fit perfectly at the end.

If you want to diversify your golf equipment nowadays, you don't have too many possibilities. Of course you can have your initials stamped on your wedge or your name embroidered on your bag. But this is not really unique. Honma makes it much easier for its buyers. And the nice thing about it is that you actually get more quality for your money. A Honma club is not only something unique and looks noble - it is also so much better in quality than anything produced by the big brands in the industry.
What makes Honma so much better is the club head, which is made of Japanese steel and other high quality materials like carbon, which is absolutely exact and without deviations. But you can also feel the difference with the shaft. Depending on the number of stars, the characteristics of the shaft improve with regard to the twists that occur during the swing. And Honma masters this like no other manufacturer. You will be able to produce shafts that are not only particularly soft, but also have less torque. The less torque, the more precise and reliable the shot.
This is a big issue with the driver in particular, as it achieves the highest club head speeds. That's why you profit the most from a good shaft and shouldn't make any compromises in quality. That's why the choice is Honma and you'll notice the difference on the first tee.
Honma clubs are unique, their perfection is second to none worldwide. Those who play Honma don't cut back on quality. No matter if 2, 3, 4 or 5 stars.
