The T//world have a very clever, progressiv­e flat (48º-54º) and reverse taper (56º-60º) blade design, which ensures optimal spin and distance control when shots are hit lower on the face with the stronger lofts, and further up the face with higher lofts. CNC face milling ensures maximum traction between face and ball. Three sole grind choices allow golfers to match the T//world to their particular type of attack and turf conditions.


Honma might be masters at forging beautiful irons, but the T//world wedges are cast from 8620 mild steel. That’s absolutely not a problem, but it is worth rememberin­g if you’re the type of golfer who swears that irons and wedges should be forged. The T//world is a cracking mid-way wedge – as in it doesn’t have either a very rounded or particular­ly straight leading edge, so it’s likely to suit the eye of a very wide audience.

It’s really important to remember wedge test data can change from day to day, and from different lies and situations, but for us the Honma generated 7.5% more stopping power than the equivalent Titleist Vokey Design SM8 on a full, 110-yard gap wedge shot. With the least amount of backspin difference (drop off) between our highest and lowest spinning shots, it was also our most consistent and predictabl­e amongst the seven new wedges tested.

All in, the Honma is a brilliant wedge set-up that we’d happily use ourselves. Premium Japanese craftsmans­hip at a very nice price.
