Game Improvement from Honma0

T//WORLD XP-1 range (shared from Golf Punk)

Those clever people at Honma have come up with their latest new range of clubs in its renowned T//WORLD Series aimed at the game improvement sector of the market. The beautifully crafted high-performance clubs include complementary drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons for both men and women.

The clubs are built in easy-to-square, draw-biased designs that consistently deliver greater distance and outstanding forgiveness for those golfers with a higher handicap. In addition to the striking profiles of the club heads, the ultra-lightweight VIZARD shafts are engineered to provide more swing speed, a high launch trajectory and responsive feel.

The driver features an innovative Double Slot Sole across the club head, with a narrow slot in the centre that helps to deliver more consistent distance and accuracy off the tee. The driver’s club face flexes along the entire slot for more speed and low spin, while the double slot flexes on heel and toe hits to reduce side spin.

HONMA’s exclusive Five Fang Technology – with three fang-like tabs in the crown and two in the sole – provides a fast and efficient structure to increase face flex area and strengthen the thin surrounding walls. The lightweight ET40 carbon crown ensures a low centre of gravity (CG), while the precise internal weighting is ribbed for added strength and face repulsion. A 15g weight pad is strategically positioned to provide an optimum launch time and again.

The driver also features the superior primary 8-setting adjustment of HONMA’s non-rotating hosel, where the spine of the shaft stays fixed in the same position while the sleeve spins to the required setting to deliver greater impact consistency.

The fairway woods also feature the Double Slot Sole on a carbon crown for a high launch, long carry and more consistent strike. A low and deep CG design incorporates precision high strength steel body and thin fast face, with a heavy internal sole weighting. The hybrids carry the same design features, plus a thin, fast 455 steel face.

The high-performance design of the XP-1 irons produce outstanding distance and accuracy, thanks to a thin, fast club face throughout the set. Hollow long irons feature a tungsten sole weight, while short irons have a deep cavity. A high MOI is achieved with a low, deep CG for higher launches and longer carries.
