Real distance through high launch and low spin

The concept behind the TW747 Fairway wood is "real distance". With this technology Honma has reached deep into the trick box. The crown is made of carbon to save weight and to place additional weight as far down in the head as possible. This is achieved with a 20g tungsten weight. The center of gravity is extremely low, the take-off angle is correspondingly high and yet little spin is produced. "High Launch - Low Spin" is the secret recipe for maximum width. And still every green can be attacked.

Left-handed versions available. Get in touch with us for more details.

Please keep in mind that when you select a longer shaft than standard a custom Honma order is required. Meaning that Honma has to do the customization, not ExactGolf. And this requires about 8 weeks of additional shipping time. This is not the case for all other customizations and also not for shorter shafts.

Honma TW747 Fairwaywood Review

It's time to test the little brother of the popular TW747 driver, the matching fairway wood. Of course, a driver always gets a little more attention, especially when someone like Justin Rose plays it and has great success with it. The fairway wood must not be neglected under any circumstances and is one of the most important clubs in the bag for many players. Modern fairway woods are suitable as real weapons from the tee but also from the fairway to attack greens. In the following review we test the TW747 fairway wood with 15°, i.e. the classic 3 wood variant, and focus on hitting from the ground with turf of different lengths.

The look and feel

The fairway wood is interesting to look at because it seems rather inconspicuous when you consider how much technology is actually behind it. The crown is made of carbon, but is covered by a quite inconspicuous varnish. Unlike many other manufacturers, Honma doesn't try to "show off" with carbon. The background is that this saves weight which in turn can be placed in the lower part of the head, i.e. below the ball. This is especially important because the head and the playing surface are relatively large. This immediately gives more self-confidence when addressing the ball.

The Launch

And that brings us to the great strength of this fairway wood: the simple launch. One of our test players had no problems at all with "only" 90 mph club head speed to carry the ball high into the air, even from unfavourable fairway lies. This not only has the advantage of producing good lengths, but also that the ball lands relatively steeply again, so that greens can also be played well. So our test player had a landing angle of 32° which is very good for a 15° wood.

And we ourselves were also surprised how easy the ball can be carried into the air. And that even from difficult positions and without having to change the swing. It was even a bit unpleasant because the club doesn't make the impression at first when you address the ball. As soon as you hit it, however, it unfolds its strength and you are taught better.

We want to emphasize this because it shows the real quality of a fairway wood. That's exactly what's difficult to achieve: to simplify and maximize the launch without exorbitantly boosting the spin.

Forgiveness

The TW747 fairway wood is certainly one of the larger woods on the market. This has advantages as well as disadvantages. The large head gives self-confidence and the large face offers a lot of room to manoeuvre so that mistakes are easily distorted. The low center of gravity in combination with the face makes it relatively easy to avoid typical failures with this fairway wood. So there were practically no topped balls in our test, but this is typically a problem of certain fairway positions.

The combination of trajectory and spin

As a result, the TW Fairway Wood is the right club for the precisely defined area of application of a fairway wood. On the one hand, I want to get the ball into the air from unfavourable locations and achieve good lengths. I want to generate less spin because too much spin makes the ball difficult to control and shortens the ball flight. And I want the ball to land quite steeply so that greens can be controlled. Honma really found the right mixture and amazed our whole team.

Conclusion and recommendation

The above mentioned reasons all speak for the TWorld Fairway wood. In addition, there is the choice of shafts, even if many of them have several weeks delivery time. Nevertheless Honma offers everything from D-1.5 to D-5 as swing weight. There is also a high launch version of the 3 wood with 16.5°. Better players should definitely consider the FP and FD shafts. These are available in many different variants and flexes, even higher quality than the standard shaft and with a surcharge of only 50€ worth considering.

About Honma

It was quite a sensation when Justin Rose signed the contract with Honma in January 2019. It was a decisive step for the traditional manufacturer from Japan. For decades, it was keeping a low profile and did not pay much attention to marketing. The recipe also worked well because the quality of the clubs was so good that word of it quickly got around in the golf world. If you are looking for something extravagant, have the necessary change left and want maximum quality, you practically had to go to Honma.

But times are changing. The TW747 fairway wood play in a price range where it doesn't have to hide from the big manufacturers. And this is really something new. Honma makes no compromises in terms of quality. The standard remains the same. All clubs are handmade in Sakata. And what has always made Honma so unique is the interaction between shaft and club head. The shafts they manufacture themselves are of outstanding quality, which you definitely need with a fairway wood. Because here the clubhead speed is relatively high. A bad shaft can break out in all possible directions and pushes the ball in a direction it is not supposed to go. This is not the case with the high-quality Honma Vizard shafts.

When you decide on a TW747 fairway wood you are not only buying a piece of golf history. You also get a handcrafted wood of the highest quality and a shaft that is second to none. And this for a price that is within the budget of most golfers.
