What we say...
With the exception of the Cobra King Forged Tec, Honma’s Vx was the strongest lofted 7-iron in our players’ iron category (in 2020).
That means it should be fast and long. But our data has the Vx down as not only more than capable of competing with any forged iron (it was our longest fully-forged model by three yards from the Srixon Z785), but it holds its own against fast-faced, hollow body models, too.
It’s not just all about power, either. Our data has the Vx beating our test average (5.7% vs 6.49%) for carry drop-off, which should make it a consideration for golfers looking for a degree of forgiveness from their forged irons. We love the head’s straight lines and typical Japanese high toe shaping.
A brilliantly powerful forged iron from a brand that’s making some big waves for the consistent quality of its products.
