I've always been intrigued by the Japanese market for golf clubs. Honma is at the top of the list when it comes to golf club makers in this market. Finally, getting to find some locally to try out, I'm pretty impressed overall. The look of them at address is simply clean. They are one of the most forgiving clubs I've hit in last couple years. I'm a 5 handicap, and love the new Players Distance category. For those that hit straight but want more distance. This club fits the bill in every aspect I would consider important. The forging is just a tad firmer than some others in the category, but the results overpower that. I would recommend at least trying these, if in the market.
