Honma TW-X Irons


Recommended Posts

My irons were delivered after FedEx officially declared them lost! They were a day late and the box was ripped open but thankfully all the irons were there and undamaged ūüôā

 

After 2 range sessions and a quick 9, I can say they are as advertised! They are compact heal to toe, forgiving on toe hits (which is what I was looking for), and sound and feel great. Thin shots were not as forgiving and noticed a decent loss of distance. Thankfully thin shots is not a frequent miss for me. I will need to get the lies adjusted and likely change the Honma grips. I plan to play a couple more rounds and another range session before I make any changes just to get a better feel of the set before making any adjustments.

I just got a set and I think they’re great clubs. Haven’t hit them in a launch monitor but on the range was hitting 7 iron 160-170 in a very light tail wind (usual is 150). The feel to me is a tad c

I bought the 4-10 with modus 105s...4 rounds later I'm glad I did...never played a 'game improvement' type iron before but these look right and perform above my expectations.  Soles are wide but not t

Yes, exactly the same just with graphite shafts.

So lies can easily be adjusted plus/minus 2 degrees?

Yes, lies can easily be adjusted +/-2 degrees. The metal is really soft and if your clubmaker isn't careful they can leave marks on the hosel. Had mine bent 1 deg flat and may need another 1 deg.

 

I also emailed Honma weeks ago but unscrewing the weight ports. They said the same thing posted above. I wanted to increase the SW without ugly lead tape. Ended up blowing off the Honma 52 gram grips (really easy with air compressor) and replace with GP NDMC 47 gram grips. This upped the SW closer to D1.5

So Honma customer service was wrong. Bought a 6 iron head on eBay just to mess around with. Weight screws do actually come out and there’s access to the hollow head. There was already some hot melt inside the head but I’ll be adding more.

Cool. Keep us posted on how it sounds before and after the hotmelt.

Cross posting to this thread, as it may have interest to TW-X people as well...

 

Update to my Honma status.  I still absolutely love my 747v's, but the gap between my 4i and 5i was way too small.  I originally was fitted into and ordered a P790 4i that gave me 7-10 more carry yards.  After waiting ~8 weeks on backorder, I found a glut of TW-X 4 irons on Ebay with my shaft (modus tour 105s) for half the cost of a new P790, so I took a flyer on it.  Canceled my P790 order and received my TW-X today.  Overall, it's a darn nice looking iron.  Certainly larger than the nearly butter knife 747v, but still pleasant to my eye.  I am anal about small offset and thin top lines, and the visuals don't bother me at all.  I'll report back when I actually hit it!

In the never-ending quest to solve the 4 iron spot ‚ÄĒ don‚Äôt like hybrids ‚ÄĒ I just picked up this same club still in plastic for $75, only¬†in the Modus 120. It looks really good, better to me than the driving iron types. Have not taken plastic off yet and will be looking for your review on how it goes.¬†

This might be a silly question, but has anybody compared these with the XP-1? Sorry if I missed it.

Glad to see more people enjoying these irons! I am still in love with them, still thinking about buying a second set to hold onto after my current ones get played to death.

 

@lefthack imo, the XP-1 irons are SGI compared to the TW-X. More offset in the long irons and mid irons, similar in 9/10/11 irons. Slightly stronger lofts, lighter stock shaft. The XP-1 line is MASSIVE compared to the TW747 line, and the TW747 woods and hybrids aren't exactly small or "sub zero" size.

Not seeing them in person or in relation to others, I couldn't tell. When I found they were cast that was enough for me. I just thought they had a cool look to them. I think the TW-X will be my Honma club when the time comes.

Yeah I saw the whole lineup and the XP-1 line just looked so massive. The TW-X is very appealing on the eyes at address, enough offset for some forgiveness but it is not an atrocious amount.  I haven't had too many problems with the bigger soles. When you get a chance to snag them I think you'll like them.

 

I'm a lefty too BTW. I can post some LH pictures if you'd like when I can.

Awesome, a shot behind the ball would give perspective. Thanks!

It took a couple rounds to get the irons dialed in. The TW X irons are just as I had hoped for.¬†I love the sound and feel and the extra distance due to stronger lofts is nice. Last year I added the TW W4 wedges to the bag and they have been awesome. Having both makes for a great looking bag ūüôā

the offset is generous but i don't think it is an atrocious amount. the top lines are pleasing to the eye but not razor thin, not super thick. i think these are well made irons, feel is great, I still get feedback on misshits. I have gained a good amount of distance, dispersion is solid, accuracy is solid. I feel very confident that I can make the shot I need to when playing. Very impressed with them. Even have the 747 driver and 3 wood in the bag. 

 

Just wish I could get my hands on some Honma TW-W/W4 wedges...

 

@pdxhak lol let us live man, us lefties deserve shiny clubs too. I really wish I could try the 747V or other Honma irons.
