Nice write up, @Jman. I like the look of the driver, fairways and hybrids, and they're competitively priced. The irons don't do anything for me looks-wise, but Honma seems to have a rep for quality products so I'm sure they're performers.

Irons with colours on them scream "I suck at golf".

Awful.

yikes. Learn something new every day. Apparently there are a whole lot of tour players that suck at golf. 😀

Wanted to throw up a couple of pictures of the driver head. This has to be dropped in the mail, so I won't get a chance to try it yet, but the shape is pretty solid.

They look alright.

I am having such a hard time figuring out what Honma's identity is. Very confusing.
Im not sure they know to be honest. This is a much more Japan looking line release, reminds me a lot of Yonex honestly.

Ok, this is a REALLY slick fairway in hand. And that channel is DEEP.

Holy hell this sets up amazing. Color me shocked, but the 55g shaft will be interesting for me hahaha

Hoping for some HQ pics tonight then on the monitor tomorrow and Monday for everyone. Also have an iron in I’ll get pics up of.

Evening picture nudge. The fairway is a STUNNER in hand.

Did some 7i work inside last night on the GC2 and it’s at 29* with the undercut it has as low spinning as you might expect, but it’s hot and easy to make speed after I settled in and stopped swinging the 55g shaft like I do my 110’s. Firm on the feel, but crisp and sharp, not clacky. Long too. Pretty easy 185-188 carries with it for me.

The fairway debuts on course today, bag is gonna be FULL, but it and the C721 will get a workout. Freaking gorgeous club in the sunlight.

You are right, that FW looks really good. Be curious to see how it goes up against the 721 today. Could you snap a little side by side of it on the course? Perhaps showing the face of both?

I can try! This one is surprisingly deep given the sim of the GS line, much deeper than the 721

This fairway is pretty surprising.

Sound isn’t as metallic or resonating as I expected, it’s instead crisp, feels pretty hot off the face too.

Setup look is fun in the sun. It’s busy, but not gaudy like the red driver in the lineup. It’s a pretty deep little fairway. Deeper than the C721 I’m also reviewing.

As expected, it gets up quick. And in such a lightweight setup speed is easy to come by, and for me personally it’s lead to some issues timing things out and feeling the head, though I don’t think I’m the target demographic for this one.

Distance will shake out on monitor Tuesday, but I’m pleasantly surprised here so far, I think the ball speed is going to surprise me.

More soon on this one. Any questions? I’ll also come in and comment on the 7i some more here a bit later! (y)

The drivers catch my eye more than the irons. Honma just confuses me at times with what they put out and the number of lines that come with it. Although I will say, I have really enjoyed pretty much every piece of their gear that I have gotten my hands on.
x2...i would love to try one out.
