I am looking at a Honma combo set TW727P and TW727V , but notice that the lofts are very different between the two versions.
The gap in lofts from 7 P to 8 V is 8 degrees. The current owner has strengthened the lower irons massively to match the Ps.
I have not been able to try them, but I am concerned that maybe they are just not meant to be a combo on those lofts.
Whats your advice on this? Does anyone have any experience of the transition gap on combos?
Thanks in advance.

You can easily bent them to reduce the gap. they are forged and can be bent with no problem. I have a set of TW737V and my club fitter has adjusted the loft and lie of them with no difficulty.
Very good iron btw!

They will be trench digging  machines bent 3 or 4 degrees strong.

Japanese irons  rarely have much bounce to begin  with.  Bending them that strong will remove all of it and give you a dig sole (leading edge lower than trailing edge). No thanks.

I’m steep and a digger.  I do the reverse.  I bend all my irons 2 degrees weak to increase bounce.

Yes that was my big worry , but I pulled the trigger and bought them nonetheless  !
Only had a couple of games but in play they are not too bad for digging , and are lovely irons .
I am getting all the lofts checked tomorrow so I will find out what the real story is and report back.
