I have spent some time on their site and have been poring Wrx for confirmation but could use some help.

The TW737 V, Vn, and Vs look identical but offer different levels of workability and forgiveness according to the Honma site.

From what I've been able to ascertain the V is the base model if you will, the Vn is a little more blade-like in performance, and the Vs offers a little more forgiveness, correct?

But how is this achieved?  I have never seen all three heads side by side but, like I said, the appear to be identical from the photos on their site.

Any help understanding is appreciated.

Sorry I can't answer exactly what you're looking for but I've hit them all and they are VERY similar in terms of forgiveness. My fitter actually said he thinks vn is easier to hit then V. I kinda agreed because Vn was just launching balls straight and up.

My next build is combo Vn and V.

The 727Vn were a little smaller head and I think had slightly weaker lofts.  I have the 727V and hybrids. All great clubs to be sure.

You gotta check out the "special" site!  http://www.honmagolf.co.jp/en/tourworld_vizard/product/product_vn.html

At least here you'll be able to see a better array of pictures and can compare specs across all of the iron models.  

If I were to purchase a set, it would for sure be the Vn's!  They are incredible.

I thought Honma made all V series in 737 same loft so people can easily make combo set. I thought I read the spec sheet when it first came out.. but lofts are different now.

How do you feel about getting 4-5 Vs, 6iron V and 7-pw Vn ? Does anyone tried getting just a single stick in a combo set? Somehow it feels bit weird to me.

I agree. When looking at all 3 it's difficult to determine and see their differences.
