SPECS: 3-SW with Nippon N.S. Pro 950GH, N.S. Pro Modus3 Tour shafts or True Temper Dynamic Gold AMT steel. Vizard 1 graphite also available.
RECOMMENDATION: Targets low- and mid-handicap players who want forged-like feel and a traditional look with better forgiveness and good versatility.
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: Pocket cavity for a low CG, enhanced forgiveness and higher launch angles; enhanced face design for added distance; thicker sweet spot for enhanced feel at impact.
Though this is a cast model, it provides outstanding feel that’s not far off from Honma’s typical forged models. The pocket cavity design does provide better playability for a wider range of players and helps make Honma a brand that non-single-digit players can turn to for solid all-around performance.
“Very good turf interaction and feel at impact as well as unexpected forgiveness. Average players can still get ample launch and spin from this blade-like model.”
