Line up for loft / bounce which fulfills every style of serious golfers
Our iron clubs will not be defeated!
Excellent compatibility of wedge, debut with shafts which are specially designed, the "VIZARD IB W".
In order to meet the demands of professional golfer Hideto Tanihara, who indicated that he wanted us to produce a shaft that would allow him to hit balls on a low trajectory and feel as if the ball were riding on the face of the head, we modified the VIZARD IB, a weighted carbon shaft for irons, into a shaft designed especially for wedge clubs.
By increasing the stiffness of the tip and moderating the stiffness of the grip, balls can be hit with power, the loft at impact operates in accordance with the standing direction of the golfer, and exceptional spin performance is rendered.
|Hideto Tanihara's comment||I have repeatedly tested this shaft since last year and can definitely say with pleasure that a shaft has been produced to my satisfaction. It feels as if the ball is riding on the face of the head. And with a low trajectory, the ball spins incredibly well.|
A triangular shape promotes consistency in the transition from our TOUR WORLD irons
To emphasize consistency in the transition from our TOUR WORLD irons to our approach wedges, we opted to leave the face size alone, forming a triangular shape by sharpening the sides that converge on the toe.
Enjoy optimum wedge performance with outstanding control
The sole has also been designed to promote consistency in the transition from our TOUR WORLD irons.In Honma Golf’s efforts to accommodate Hideto’s demands for a better performing wedge, we have developed the new TW-W wedge, which gives golfers the ability to easily control their distance demands during the game.
Golfers of all abilities will feel an added sense of confidence thanks to the wedge’s larger head
The TW-W wedge’s built-up blade and raised heel enables players to the use more of the club face when opening up the wedge face at address.
Greater accuracy in wedge play with superior spin performance
Designed with an emphasis on stability, the shape of the TW-W wedge’s sole helps prevent its leading edge from rising at address, while its moderate bounce allows for greater consistency.
More accurate and consistent wedge play, similar to that experienced by professional golfers, has been achieved through a process which involves repeatedly grinding down the surface in increments of 0.1 mm to render superior spin performance.
The entire surface of the TW-W wedge face features a blast finish, which helps golfers to visualize that more of the face can be used in order to maximize their technique and performance. This blast finish also greatly reduces glare reflecting off the club face, allowing golfers to focus on their shot making when it matters most.
