Honma have been making handcrafted clubs for some time now and they are starting to make a breakthrough onto the commercial scene, with Justin Rose becoming one of the high profile players that use Honma clubs. The 747 455 driver has a handcrafted head, made by the best in the trade in Sakata, Japan. It is a 455cc for those players that want or need a slightly smaller look at address. The crown is made from a combination of an ET40 composite material and ultra light carbon which is formed together to make the thinnest and lightweight crown you can get.
Titanium faces compress when the ball is struck at impact, with the ball coming off the face like a spring. The Four Fang Face from Honma has been designed to give this effect over as large a surface area as possible by making the perimeter of the face very strong. This then gives a face that produces incredible ball speed from almost everywhere on the face so that off centre hits travel consistently far just like strikes from the middle.
Another way that optimum distance is achieved is from the crown that has been made as light as possible. A light head provides fast clubhead speeds for more distance, and the crown also helps to push the CG low and deep in the face so that the moment of inertia is high for a high ball flight that stays in the air. This CG also provides more forgiveness and more speed from everywhere on the clubface.
The shaft is a Honma Vizard, which again is designed by the craftsman that made the head. This shaft is hand rolled for the most precise feel and control. Along with the head, the Vizard helps to achieve the low spin, high flight that is perfect for long, straight drives. The shaft will also always align with the target even though the hosel adjusts. The hosel can change the loft, face angle and lie so that you have the best array of options when trying to perfectly customise the club to suit you.
