Just picked these up on whim! Played one round today the TW747V irons are butter soft, relatively forgiving and have great distance and dispersion. Also very impressed with the driver! I got the 460 model with the Vizard FD 60 shaft and man this think looks and feels great! Feels very explosive but not loud and this shaft has some great kick. More testing on them this weekend but so far really impressed!! I will report back.
Anyone else gaming Honma? What are your thoughts?

    My boy recently got two TW747 drivers to test from his sponsor. In a nutshell, the Epic Sub Zero is no longer in the bag. We were just given the heads, so I cant comment on the shafts performance. The driver is just alot more forgiving on off centered strikes than the SZ without sacrificing distance on centered strikes.
    He just turned 15 the other day and gets upto 173 mph ball speed with the TW 747 (meaningless amount more than his SZ). Plays Hzrdus smoke 6.5 or AD - IZ6X, he has not fully decided.
    Highly recommend the driver to anyone who loves classic looking shapes at address without a bunch of bells and whistles.

    I have gamed the Honma TW747v for almost 2 months now. Best irons have I hit since my Hogan Apex FTX from the early 2000’s. I previously gamed the Mizzy MP18 MMC and Fli-Hi combos for 2017-2018 season. No comparison. Mizzy are sidelined now. I also tried the Mizzy JPX 919 Forged, Ping i500 and Taylormade P790. Honma bested all of them for my swing.

    Just wanted to report back after several rounds. I've tried most of the stuff these days and to my pleasant surprise Honma has made a seat in my bag. Everything from PW to Driver is super solid and seems to just fit me great. Ive shot some great scores, experienced the forgiveness and distance which I am comfortable with all combined with superior feel and classic looks. I got all this stuff at a bargain so its really a win win! I am quite surprised by how this turned out but also very glad I have a unique bag at least until Honma gets more popular in the US. I highly recommend their entire line!

    So going on two months with Honma in the bag and still loving everything. The only thing that didn't work was the wedges but did get some TM Milled Grind which are working great. I did pick up this to try this weekend will report back but here are some pics. It looks awesome, really compact blade length.

    Yeah I saw those in person they look awesome! Really small, even smaller blade length than the Tiger Woods P7TW irons sweet but way too small for my comfort haha

    I’ve been gaming the Honma 747P irons for a couple weeks now and love them! Went through fittings with all the major brand’s GI and forged clubs, and for my swing the P model seemed to work and feel best. Perhaps when my handicap goes down from 16 to 5 I’ll reevaluate forged again. I think people in the market should at least try the offerings from them. They were not on my radar until I saw them at a major vendor demo day.

    Very nice set up. Do the 747V irons have a Made In Japan Sakata stamping on them like this hybrid above? Thanks.
