The Honma GS range promises to deliver excellent levels of distance and forgiveness, with a confidence-inspiring look.
Honma T//World GS driver
The Honma T//World GS driver features a crank-shaped slot on the sole to maintain ball speeds across the face and reduce loss of distance on off-centre strikes.
The slot, along with a radial face sructure featuring varying levels of thickness, combine to reduce spin on impacts low on the face or on the toe – something Honma feel is common among high handicap golfers. Honma feel this creates a “gear effect” that means the T//World GS driver will give high handicap golfers greater distance and less punishing misses.
The titanium crown has been designed to be as lightweight as possible, helping to boost clubhead speed, while a keel-shaped head and strategically positioned tungsten sole weight promote a draw bias, as Honma recognise that the target golfer for this driver is likely to be fighting an unwanted left-to-right curvature in ball flight.
Honma also use a patented and exclusive Non-Rotating System in the hosel, which is designed to ensure the shaft stays in the 6 o’clock position regardless of adjustments to loft and lie angle, helping to create a more stable ball flight.

Honma T//World GS irons
The Honma T//World GS irons are designed to offer maximum distance and forgiveness.
A thin, high-strength L-cup structured face expands the sweet spot, while variable ribs on the inside of the clubface help reduce weight and improve ball speed compared to the previous Honma XP-1 irons.
The T//World GS 4-7 irons feature sole slots that reduce the loss of ball speed on off-centre strikes, plus a 6g tungsten weight in the toe that increases MOI.
RELATED: Best Mid-Handicap Irons
The 8-11 irons feature a 360-degree undercut and a large sweet spot. A thick steel sole provides a low centre of gravity which creates high launch and spin to help golfers attack the flag with confidence.
The T//World GS irons come with a choice of Speed Tuned 55 graphite shaft or Nippon N.S. Pro 950 GH neo-steel shaft as standard.
A set of seven Honma T//World GS irons is £1,365.
