The Pin­na­cle Of Honma

A spe­cial set to com­mem­o­rate a his­toric mo­ment in the com­pany’s his­tory

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GEARGUIDE -

It has been 40 years since Honma Golf’s Sakata Stu­dio first es­tab­lished roots in Sakata, Ya­m­a­gata in hopes of es­tab­lish­ing an en­vi­ron­ment ideal for golf club pro­duc­tion. A 165,000-squareme­ter stu­dio com­plex com­pris­ing 17 build­ings sits neatly on the premises. Honma crafts­man­ship has been faith­fully pre­served at the Sakata Stu­dio, each process in club pro­duc­tion, which en­com­passes an ar­ray of stages, in­clud­ing polishing of clubs in in­cre­ments of 0.01mm and ap­ply­ing five or six coats of paint 0.07mm thick, is im­bued with skills and ex­per­tise through a ded­i­ca­tion to re­fine­ment and per­fec­tion. This is the very essence and pas­sion of Honma Golf’s crafts­men, who are un­will­ing to com­pro­mise on qual­ity, which is ev­i­dent in ev­ery Honma 60th An­niver­sary Model club.

Honma’s 60th An­niver­sary Model is a spe­cial com­plete golf set con­sist­ing of a driver, fair­way woods, util­ity, irons, put­ter, caddy bag, and head­cov­ers.

The set rep­re­sents the pin­na­cle of Honma’s storied his­tory, with clubs that fea­ture the es­teemed crafts­man­ship of the com­pany’s Sakata Fac­tory ar­ti­sans.

To re­li­ably in­crease carry dis­tances with a high tra­jec­tory and op­ti­mal spin rate, the driver in­cor­po­rates a deep cen­tre of grav­ity (CG) that al­lows golfers to con­fi­dently swing with au­thor­ity. Mean­while, the irons’ low CG de­sign thwarts mishits, as the sole shape en­hances turf in­ter­ac­tion and al­lows for cleaner im­pact, im­proved ac­cu­racy and su­pe­rior con­trol.

The new ARMRQ X shaft was ex­clu­sively de­vel­oped for the Honma 60th An­niver­sary Model. By adopt­ing a newly de­vel­oped 10-axis struc­ture, the speed with which the shaft can re­bound to its orig­i­nal po­si­tion and shape has been en­hanced. That al­lows golfers to swing away at a com­fort­able tempo, and launch balls squarely and straight with­out com­pro­mis­ing on ac­cu­racy and dis­tance.

By uti­liz­ing TORAYCA T1100G for all lay­ers, the weight of the club­head feels bal­anced through­out the swing. The club­head’s rigid de­sign al­lows for face flex­ure at im­pact, and then a quick and pre­cise restora­tion to its orig­i­nal form cat­a­pults the golf ball forward for in­creased dis­tance. Honma’s 60th An­niver­sary Model al­lows golfers to swing ag­gres­sively with con­fi­dence yet not com­pro­mis­ing on dis­tance and for­give­ness.
