We feel your pain. Those second shots on long holes can be a bear to negotiate. So you press and take a hard swing, hoping to smack a home run. Never quite works out, though. And many manufacturers don’t make things easy with their tough-to-hit fairway woods. Take comfort in that many golfers have a difficult time even getting the ball airborne using those clubs. But that may well be a thing of the past, with Honma’s new TW757 fairway woods and hybrids. Simple, sleek and built with a low CG, these are designed to help you get optimal ball flight and workability from various turf conditions. They’re ideal for golfers who value control and like to deliberately draw or fade the ball as needed. Classically styled with a player-approved compact footprint, they arm you with everything you need to properly hit those shots.
There’s a sole slot right behind the clubface. You’ll know it’s there when you swing, because impact will feel and sound solid. Plus, you’ll get a higher launch with more ball speed – yielding extra carry and distance – on both center and mishits. The clubs are made with premium materials, too, such as an SUS630 stainless steel body and 455-carpenter steel face.
The 3-wood has a carbon crown that saves weight and generates higher launch conditions. It also sports a cup face insert design – as does the #3 Hybrid – to boost initial ball speed for extra distance. And as both the fairway woods and hybrids progress to higher lofts, you’ll notice that progressive internal sole weighting helps you generate consistently long carry distances. And as an added benefit, the fairway woods have an adjustable sole weight to help you fine-tune the swing weight to your own preference. The hybrids feature a player-preferred neutral bias and square face angle that work in concert to give you an optimal balance of distance and control.
All of these clubs come standard with the proprietary Vizard shaft that’s hand-rolled at Honma’s Sakata, Japan factory by “Takumi” master craftsmen. These shafts bring out the best in your club performance through advanced carbon materials and unmatched quality control, and are spine-aligned for increased stability and control. Get ready to start reaching those long holes in two. It’s a real possibility with TW757 fairway woods and hybrids.
