New Honma TR20 460 and TR20 440 drivers launch for 2020

Published

on

Honma has introduced its two new driver additions for 2020—the TR20 460 and TR20 440.

The TR20 460 (used by Honma ambassador Justin Rose) is a full profile driver deeper front to back with a swept crown designed for confidence and playability, while the TR20 440 is a compact profile that sits higher in the back for a traditional appearance.

Speaking on the new drivers, Honma President John Kawaja stated

“TR20 drivers are a feat of engineering craftsmanship from our incredibly talented teams in Sakata and Carlsbad. Combining innovative carbon construction with the legendary shaping of our takumis in Japan is something we’re very excited for golfers to experience.”

Both new additions from Honma feature a nearly total carbon body and a fast TiCarbon Fast Frame.

The TiCarbon Fast Frame combines an ultra-lightweight ET40 carbon crown from Toray Composites with a carbon sole on a highly optimized titanium frame designed to provide maximum speed and weight efficiency.

A unique vertical groove face works with the Ti frame and carbon body in a bid to deliver speed, and three strategically located and adjustable sole weights seek to provide flight and playability preference for increased MOI, reduced spin, or more draw bias.

The non-rotating hosel on the two new driver additions from Honma allows the clubhead to be adjusted +/- 1.5 degrees in face angle, +/- 1 degree in loft, and +/- 1 degree in lie angle without changing the orientation of the shaft in a design for more consistent performance and impact delivery.

Honma’s TR20 drivers are engineered with the brand’s VIZARD shafts, designed to provide a better whole club in 50, 60, and 70-gram options with different EI profiles to meet the distance needs of golfers with different swing speeds and shaft loading tendencies.

    Substantially over priced, but other than that it looks interesting.

How did heavier or lighter shafts affect your iron performance? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing shaft weight and how it affects their iron play. WRXer ‘RoyalMustang’ kicks off the thread asking two questions:

“1) If you went lighter, how did it impact your game (down to 95-105g). Tempo changes, good or bad?   

2) If you went heavier (120-130g), same question? Good move?”

And our members have been sharing their experiences in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • gripandrip: “Average about 105 on my driver swing speed… not much more anymore. Currently playing to a ~2 HC. Switched from DGS300 to Steelfiber i95. No issues for me at all. I stayed with DG400’s in my wedges. Initially, I thought I had issues with dispersion, but after a couple of rounds, it was no longer a concern.”
  • mackepa: “I have found that around 120 grams is the “sweet spot” for my iron game. Anything heavier, and I start swinging hard to try to get the shaft to feel like it’s loading. Anything lighter than 120, and it starts to feel like a toothpick. I tend to also play my irons over length since I’m a little taller. I currently swing driver about 110mph, but I don’t really go after my irons with the same effort. I currently love the KBS $-Taper 120 Stiff.”
  • erikro: “Biggest difference for me is with the s300 shaft I feel it more the next morning. With a 105 gram shaft I have no trouble.”
  • Ri_Redneck: “I play graphite iron shafts, but only 115g and higher. I like a club with some heft. If they get too light, it throws my sequencing off, and balls go everywhere. I can’t say I’ve ever gotten too heavy in my irons, but 80g is the top of what I like in my driver and FWs.”
