The TW747 series is a milestone for the renowned manufacturer from Japan. With the TW747 P they offer an iron that was developed especially for players who need more length and forgiveness at the same time. The 20g tungsten insert in the sole of the head helps. This shifts the weight far downwards and makes it easier to achieve higher ball flights.

Standard iron set is from 5-PW. Iron 4 can be added on top if needed. 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.

Buy Honma's TW747 P iron online

When buying a golf club online, you should be aware of the specifications you need. We are always there for you via email, live chat or phone. Just click on the small bubble in the lower right corner and get in touch with us.

But if you are someone who already knows your way around it is quite possible that you don't need any advice at all. Or maybe just the absolute details. You can be sure that we will only supply you with high quality and exactly fitting clubs. That much is already certain.

Let's take a look at the individual specifications you can choose from:

Set size:

The TW747 P is usually offered by 5-PW. That means the set starts with iron 5 and goes up to iron 10 a.k.a pitching wedge. So what you still need are clubs for longer distances than a 5 iron and more wedges, at least a sand wedge.

You can also use the TW747 P from iron 4. When you do this you usually have a 19 or 21 degree hybrid and a 15-18 degree loft fairway wood in the bag.

For players with medium and high handicaps, it's usually a good idea to go as low as 5 iron and then put an extra hybrid in the bag. If you only need a set from iron 6 on, please contact us - this is no problem either.

Shafts offered:

Honma is one of the very few manufacturers who look extremely closely at their shafts. Most other manufacturers don't care and offer all shafts on the market. That means: if you order a Honma club from us you will only get an absolutely high quality shaft.

With the TW747 P you have the choice between the Nippon NS Pro 950 and the own brand of Honma: the Vizard. Each in regular and stiff flex. The NS Pro 950 is an excellent steel shaft. That means rather heavy and hard. The Vizard is one of the best graphite shafts available. It gives an incredibly soft feel at impact and is much lighter. If you are a beginner and have low swing speeds you should definitely prefer this shaft.

But again you can contact us at any time and inquire.

Shaft length:

The shaft length is given as standard and differs minimally from set to set. One manufacturer makes his 6 iron a few mm longer than the other, and so on. If you are normally tall and have no noticeable swing, you will have no problem with the standard length. But if you are larger than 180cm, you might want to make adjustments. Conversely, if you are smaller than 170cm, it may be a good idea to choose a shorter shaft.

But be careful: if you order a shorter shaft, you will not be able to undo it. The other way round you can. If you notice, for example, that the club is too long, you can shorten it at any time. To do this, remove the grip, cut off the shaft and glue the grip back onto it.

Also here you should contact us if you are unsure.

Lie:

The Lie depends essentially on the body size. If you are taller you tend to need an "upright" Lie and should consider 1 or 2 degrees "up". Conversely, if you are a small player, you may want to choose a flatter adjustment, i.e. "down".

But it also depends on your swing plane. For example, if you are close to the ball and/or swing relatively steeply, an "up" adjustment can be useful. Conversely, with a flat swing plane a "down" adjustment can be useful.

You must not underestimate the lie, it can strongly influence the flight of your ball. But don't worry: the lie can also be adjusted afterwards. But only with irons made of Japanese quality steel. You can't buy anything else from ExactGolf anyway. This means that we can change the lie as often as you like without any problems.

Grip Strength

This depends mainly on the length of your fingers and of course whether you feel like holding a baseball bat or a pen in your hand. In front of "normal" sized hands the standard grip or regular is sufficient. 1 additional tape doesn't make much difference, but it increases the standard grip a bit. Midsize is ultimately a rather thick grip that should only be played with very large hands.

Honma TW747 P Iron Tests

Graphite vs. Steel: Vizard 50 vs. Nippon 950 GH

The question of whether to play graphite or steel with irons is no longer as trivial as it used to be. Graphite shafts have simply developed too well for this, so that in some respects the differences are no longer that big. This is not to say that it makes no difference, on the contrary. But the technologies are getting closer and closer, and the performance of very good graphite shafts is not so far away from steel shafts anymore. And this although they are of course much lighter.

In this test we look at two very good shafts. The Vizard 50 as original shaft from Honma in graphite. And the Nippon N.S. 950 GH is also a very high quality Japanese stock which is fitted as standard in the Honma TW747 P. This is also the club head we tested with. That means identical club head with two different shafts without further changes like shaft length.

The setup for this test is not easy because you need a player with a very constant swing. The suspicion is obvious that the head speed is already different, so the swing has to be almost identical during the whole test without being able to rely on the numbers of the simulator. By the way, the Foresight Quad would be used for this, which currently offers the best and most accurate technology and puts all other simulators - especially in indoor use - in the shade.

Comparing club head and ball speed

As mentioned above, it is not 100% certain that the swing was identical, but on average the deviations should be extremely small. The average clubhead speed is 70.24 mph for the Vizard vs. 66.88 mph for the Nippon. That is a good 3 miles more for the graphite shaft and also what would be expected. Due to the lower weight the club can be accelerated better - with the same swing.

This also applies to the ball speed which is 90.59 mph vs. 87.99 mph. This value is even more difficult to compare because theoretically it must be assumed that all balls are hit exactly the same. Of course this is not the case with human players. Therefore we have already removed the outliers in order to get a constant hit pattern.

Result:

The graphite shaft is much easier to accelerate and has a much higher club head and ball speed.

Carry length

It is therefore not surprising that the range of the Vizard is longer by more than 4m.

Spin Rate

The spin rate roughly indicates how much backspin the ball gets at the end. You don't want the spin rate to be too high or too low. Too high would mean that the ball screws itself up into the air, is barely long and falls like a stone from the sky. Too little means practically no control when playing the green.

The spin rate is also very individual and only the Angle of Attack (how strong the downward movement is in which I hit the ball) is decisive here. Therefore, the ideal spin rate can only be taken from an individual fitting.

Nevertheless, there is a clear difference: The spin rate of the Nippon steel shaft is higher than that of the Vizard graphite shaft.

What you can learn from this test:

First of all the obvious was confirmed that a graphite shaft provides higher club head and ball speeds. Here it was also shown in numbers. The ball continues to fly accordingly. The spin rate of the steel shaft is higher, which provides more control. A ball that lands on the green with too little spin can do anything.

If you are a player with a low club head speed the tendency should be towards a graphite shaft. This is not a general rule. Because in the end you don't compete in a longdrive competition with a 6-iron but want to get the ball next to the flag. Therefore the spin must not be neglected.

With our test player spin is basically no problem because he hits the ball in a proper downward movement and thereby "squeezes" the ball. The spin will therefore always be ok, no matter with which shaft. In your case it may be completely different and you hit the ball rather in an upward movement which provides little spin. Then the difference between steel and graphite will be more pronounced and will be a decisive factor.

Another factor which speaks for a graphite shaft and which cannot be taken from the numbers is the more pleasant feel, because graphite absorbs vibrations and protects the joints.

The Honma TW747 P compared to Vx

In this test two worlds meet: a modern cavity back iron and a two-shell "Players Iron". The trend in recent years has clearly been towards Players Irons and the reason is obvious: they forgive more mistakes, are longer and easier to play. What other reasons do you need to not play this club? On the one hand it always looks a bit "bulky", even though new irons like the Honma TW747 P have already become very attractive. And it's actually more of a beginner's club you can't touch as a (self-proclaimed) good player. One must finally stand out from these beginners somehow.

But the question is also: how much longer are they really? How much easier to hit? And is it worth it for an average player who hits the ball somewhat constant and only occasionally has his runaways to really switch to a Players iron?

The setup of the test: TW P vs. Vx

We have chosen a player who swings very constant with about 68 mph which is reasonable for an average player swing. He is neither a big slicer nor hooks the ball. We analyzed it with the Foresight Quad which is currently the measure of all things when it comes to simulators and swing analysis.

As shaft we both used the Nippon 950GH in Regular. For these clubhead speeds a good choice for a relatively light and soft steel shaft.

Carry length

The carry length of the P was about 2.5m longer on average. That doesn't sound like much, but it's at least 2% at a range of about 105m. But it is also clear: if you consider a player's iron like the P, you can't expect to hit 10, 20m further.

The Spin

Spin is particularly important, even if it is neglected by many players. There is both a side spin and a back spin. The former describes the spin in relation to the direction, the latter the spin back to the player. Both have to be kept under control. If you get too much side spin on the ball, you quickly lose direction in a light slice or hook. Too much back-spin is rarely a problem for an average player, rather too little. Because with too little spin, the ball can no longer be controlled, jumps from the green, rolls out 20m, and so on. Especially with a 6 iron you want to attack the flag and little spin makes this very difficult.

The numbers are relatively clear here: The spin of the Vx is significantly higher than that of the P - by about 5%. The spin is no problem for our test player because he hits the ball nicely in a downward movement. But with other players with a different swing it is. In this respect, this can be a purchase decision.

The result summarized

The main differences between these two club heads are clear: The Honma TW747 P flies further than the Vx, but provides the ball with less spin. Depending on the type of player, this can be an important factor.

Apart from these values, there are other considerations that are relevant for other types of players, less so for our test player. If you don't hit the ball properly in a downward movement - whether you do it or not you can already tell by the (missing) divot - you can easily get the ball into the air. An advantage of player's irons such as the TW P is that the center of gravity is far below the ball so that it can be more easily carried into the air.

This test shows the basic differences and considerations you should make when it comes to whether a Cavity Back or Players iron is the right one. The decision is not always easy because both variants have their advantages and disadvantages and it depends strongly on the individual swing. However, it is important to test without bias and not to take a club just because it is usually played by beginners. At the end of the day your own performance counts.

About Honma's TW747

Honma's history is unique and that's why the company caused such a stir when the world's #1, Justin Rose, was signed at the end of 2018. So far, Honma has stayed out of this segment and focused on the premium segment. With the TWorld 747 series, however, this changes abruptly. Not because the clubs are suddenly mass produced, but because for the first time in history Honma clubs are offered at a price that is absolutely fair and at eye level with other manufacturers like Mizuno, Titleist, Callaway or Taylor Made. And this is exactly what makes the TW747 series so unique and a great opportunity for players.

There are no compromises in quality and the clubs are still handmade in Sakata. The irons are forged from Japanese steel which is particularly soft and gives an incomparable feeling. This makes the irons particularly flexible for fitting as well. For example, you can easily adjust the lie if the player's swing changes - and he does that regularly with amateurs.

The TWorld series is therefore a unique opportunity to enjoy the highest level of Japanese blacksmithing at a price that is also paid for industrially manufactured mass-produced goods. Also for clubs where loft, lie, length and quality of the shaft are insufficient. It's no secret that these clubs vary a lot and you may not see the difference between a 5 and 6 iron just because the loft is not absolutely accurate and the shaft is of inferior quality and incorrectly installed.

At Honma all this can't happen and especially not when you buy at ExactGolf. Because we put every single club through its paces before it gets into your hands. In the TW747 series, Honma only uses the best shafts that meet your requirements. Therefore the selection is not as big as with iron sets of big manufacturers. You can therefore be sure that the quality is top notch and thus exclude another factor that makes this beautiful game even harder than it should be.

Honma custom iron shafts for TWorld

We are listing all the available iron shafts for the TWorld series. If you cannot configure them on the right it means this order is a Honma custom production meaning that Honma assembles your order in Japan - and this takes 8-10 weeks. If you want to order a set with these shafts please get in touch through live chat, email or phone.
