If you’re interested in Honma’s new TW 757 club line, there’s great news: The clubs come standard with proprietary VIZARD shafts – essentially what every other brand would consider upgrades. These premium, best-in-class graphite shafts are hand-rolled at the Skakata, Japan factory by veteran craftsmen who each have 30+ years of experience perfecting the brand’s products. The shafts may cost a little more, but they’re well worth it.
And the quality is felt throughout each club. The exclusive VIZARD for 757 50 Shaft was holistically designed to synergize the TW757 Driver and Fairway Woods from grip to tip. The strong midsection works in conjunction with a sub-5.0° torque to stabilize club delivery through impact and maximize energy transfer into the ball, while a softer tip gives you a high launch and optimal spin. This versatile shaft feels smooth and is playable for a wide variety of players seeking a premium ultralight shaft. As with all VIZARD shafts, this is spine aligned at 6:00 for more stability.
Then, there are Honma’s custom shafts. Produced in-house at Sakata to the industry’s tightest tolerances, the VIZARD MA, MP, FZ and Platinum shafts hold their own on professional tours around the world.
VIZARD MA yields high trajectory and mid spin. For players either wanting a firmer handle, taking a descending attack angle, or struggling to release the club, its Ni-Ti alloy retains tip-section shape to allow for higher launch and easy release while still maintaining ample control. Offered in 40-, 50-, 60-, and 70-gram weight classes.
VIZARD MP is for golfers taking a neutral delivery who want a high-launch, low-spin, smooth-feeling shaft. Its slight draw bias is achieved by extensive layering of ultra-high strength TORAYCA® T1100G materials, to provide stability and feel. Offered in 40-, 50-, 60-, and 70-gram weight classes.
VIZARD FZ accommodates strong swings. Its rigid tip section contains layers of the high-strength and elastic TORAYCA® M40X carbon fiber material. Expect a mid-launch with very low spin. Offered in 50-, 60-, and 70-gram weight classes.
VIZARD PT (Platinum) is an exciting new concept in ultra-premium custom shafts that helps players maximize clubhead speed. It contains ultra-elastic carbon TORAYCA® M40X in the bias layer for added tip reinforcement, and ultra-high strength and elastic TORAYCA® T1100G in all layers. Its stiff, low-torque tip and butt sections bookend an active midsection, to help increase swing speed. Offered in 40-, 50-, and 60-gram weight classes in a single uniflex profile. It’s for players with 82-116 mph clubhead speeds.
