The challenges in the development of a hybrid are very big, especially if you want to appeal to players with a rather low club head speed. After all, they have to be able to carry the ball into the air from different lies. And not only high, but also far so that greens can really be attacked from greater distances.
There is hardly a second manufacturer who understands this target group better than Honma and you can also see that with the XP1. The hybrid has an extremely light carbon crown which saves a lot of weight in the upper area of the club head so that more weight can be placed underneath the ball. This ensures an easy and high launch.
Honma also uses the proven slot technology and has equipped the XP1 Hybrid with a very thin face. Both in combination provide maximum ball speeds and thus also lengths.
The XP1 Hybrid is only built with the handmade Honma Vizard shafts from Japan in 39 grams. The XP1 Hybrid is available with 22°, 25° and 28°.
You can already order XP1 Ladies clubs but they won't be shipped before December 2019.
