Honma’s new game-improvement T//World XP-1 family blends pure Honma craftsmanship with confidence-inspiring game improvement benefits.
Designed by the master craftsmen of the famous Honma plant in Sakata, Japan, the new clubs combine aesthetically stylish designs with precise, top-quality builds.
XP-1 Driver: The XP-1 driver has an extremely light carbon crown, which enabled Honma’s engineers to create internal draw-bias weighting and high MOI. Innovative Double Slot technology allows the entire front of the clubhead to flex, with more flex occurring in the heel and toe to retain speed and accuracy on mishits.
Honma’s Five Fang Technology – with three fang-like tabs in the crown and two in the sole – provides a fast and efficient structure to increase face flex area and strengthen the surrounding walls. The lightweight ET40 carbon crown ensures a low CG, while the precise internal weighting is ribbed for added strength and face repulsion. A 15g weight pad is strategically positioned to provide optimum launch.
Honma’s non-rotating adjustable hosel maintains the precisely-located shaft spine in the same position, while offering a multitude of settings for face angle, loft and lie.
XP-1 Fairways and Hybrids: The XP-1 fairway woods and hybrids also boast the innovative double slot, a low and deep CG and thin, fast face for high launch with more carry. The XP-1 irons feature a hybrid construction with low CGand fast faces to create long carry distance. The hollow long irons (5-7) have tungsten in the sole for optimal launch and stability on mishits, while the short irons (8 -10) have a deep cavity for added forgiveness and straighter distance. Vizard Shafts
Honma designed and produced a new series of lightweight Vizard shafts in Sakata to complement the performance of the XP-1 range. The new 43g driver shaft has a unique blend of a soft mid-section and higher torque with enough stiffness in the butt and tip, allowing golfers to feel the head for better timing and deliver. The iron shafts have an ascending weight flow design and amorphous metal fibre in the tip, creating soft feel with consistent and stable performance.
