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 Ladies Driver 2020: The E-06 successor
There are two things that Honma has mastered like no other: to use high-quality shafts that are perfectly matched to the club head. And to optimize the weight distribution in the club head. The Beres Driver is the perfect solution for the latter in particular. The principle is simple, but only very few manufacturers can implement it successfully: The weight is saved in the upper part of the driver head and therefore more weight is built into the sole. The effect is that the launch is maximized and even balls with low club head speed can be moved into the air properly. The Beres Driver is designed for women with low to medium clubhead speeds. And they won't find a comparable club.
Especially if you consider not only the head but the whole package. This includes the shafts, which are often underestimated. But not with Honma. Not only are no OEM shafts available, but Honma also pays special attention to the interaction with the club head. Something that Honma has mastered like no other manufacturer is to conjure up shafts that are particularly light and soft but still have little torque. These are the torsions of the club you don't want to have - just because the head of the club says goodbye to the planned direction and can't place the ball where it belongs. Little torque is not an art with stiff and heavy shafts. The art is to make the shaft light and soft as well - and nothing is more important in a ladies driver than this characteristic. With low club head speeds you can't move heavy clubs and you still have to get a precise ball flight.
The Honma Beres E-06 Driver combines both. It is available with 2, 3, 4 or 5 stars while 2 stars is the standard version. All the others mean a surcharge. If you are wondering why the question is answered quickly: Above all, the shaft quality is higher the larger the number of stars. To produce Honma shafts is extremely complex because they are drawn by hand. Only the best of the best are sold in the end. If you decide for a 3, 4 or even 5 star Honma Driver you know that the quality is incomparable.
Compared to its predecessor, the new Honma Beres Driver features significantly more offset and a more closed face position. Both make a slice difficult to achieve. The driver is therefore perfect for players who constantly have to fight against a slice. As far as the pure look is concerned, Honma has also upgraded and not only used significantly more high-quality chrome, but also decorated the clubface with the Honma logo.
The ladies driver is available in 11.5° and 12.5° loft with 38g shaft in L flex.
Review of the new Honma Beres Ladies Driver
The Honma Beres clubs have always been designed to make the game as easy as possible. This has not changed in the seventh generation. On the contrary. We quickly noticed that Honma has moved up a gear in this respect. This is already apparent when you talk about the new Beres Driver. And here we are already at the biggest innovation: The anti-slice effect of the Honma Beres Driver is gigantic. But first things first...
The appearance of the new Honma Drivers
In terms of appearance, a lot has definitely changed. Honma relies on a lot of chrome, just like with XP1. This makes the clubhead look very noble and much more valuable than its predecessors. The chrome is also surprisingly resistant and durable. Something that immediately catches the eye is the new face that is actually decorated with the Honma logo. Our first impression was that this is just a sticker. After all, this is a feature that no manufacturer has really dared to approach yet. So now the Honma logo actually adorns the clubface, which already triggers a certain "wow effect". Purely in terms of performance, this has no influence and is more of a gimmick.
The performance of the Beres ladies driver
No question. There is no denying the fact that the driver is extremely Anti-Slice. This means a lot of offset and a closed face. For players who have to fight with a slice this is of course perfect. The driver makes it difficult to hit a slice. In the test, we were not even able to place the ball to the right of the target - even with clear slice swings of 8° from the outside and (normally) a very open clubface. So we already took the right side out of play.
The E-06 driver was also designed for anti-slice, but not as strong. Apart from that, the new Beres driver does exactly what it is supposed to: It guarantees a high launch even at low club head speeds. This is combined with a maximum "smash factor", which ensures very high ball speeds. The result is the longest possible shots.
What makes the Beres Driver so unique?
Not to mention the high-quality appearance and the anti-slice function. This club is special because the shaft and club head are in perfect harmony. There is basically no other club that offers such a light and soft shaft that also achieves good values and makes the ball controllable. The result is typical Beres and has been proven for decades: The club can be accelerated very well even with low clubhead speeds. This is mainly due to the low weight of the shaft, the low swing weight and a shaft that can be accelerated very well also thanks to the "whip effect".
The new Honma Beres Driver is perfect for women and seniors who want to get the most out of relatively low club head speeds and who occasionally have to fight a slice. These players will not find a better club on the market than this driver.
