Honma Beres is all about lightweight luxury designed for low to medium swing speed players with very deep pockets. Pricing for a Beres driver can range from a low end of $850 for a 2-Star driver all the way up to $4,500 for a 5-Star driver.

Though the 2-Star is ironically considered “entry-level” by Beres (it did finish third in this year’s Most Wanted Super Game Improvement Iron testing), the line goes up to 3-, 4- and 5-Star levels. Just so we're clear, a full bag of 5-Star Honma Beres wares will set you back roughly $70,000.

With all of that said, we'd like to get feedback from MyGolfSpy readers. We're looking for two couples (yes, couples) to test, review, and keep two Honma 2-Star Beres drivers. This test is open internationally; right-handed testers only.

____________________________________________

Testing and reviewing the Honma Beres 2-Star will be @Fjd and @Cory O: should be a fun test not only for them but as couples!

Awesome! Thanks for the opportunity. My wife and I will be looking forward to getting them out and hitting some bombs!

Feel free to ask if anyone has any specific questions.

Congratulations testers! This should be a good review, especially with the wives getting involved.

   Congratulations Testers!!!

This will be an interesting read for your testing and reports!  The kind of golf bling that will never find it's place in my camouflage Sun Mountain bag with my experienced clubs. 👍

What I really want to know is what is going on in your minds handling, swinging, hitting golf balls, and storing these beauties 😍 (the hitting golf balls part is probably going to be the most harrowing...)

Thx for the comments.  I’ve played for over 50 yrs and have been in the club making business in the past starting with Golfsmith, their clubmaking schools and then following Tom Wishon and his golf club products.  At 80 yrs old, my swing spd is down to 80 mph but can still break 80 when playing a 5500 yd crse. I look forward to seeing what a premium Japanese product feels like in terms of swg wt, feel, launch and whether you get good launch, carry and rollout with either a smooth or quick transition when you want to step on it and nuke it.

Congratulations testers.  Sounds like an amazing opportunity to take one of these 'for a spin'. I am looking forward to your reviews.

Just received an email from MGS asking for feedback on the Honma Beres driver that we won and what I thought of it.  Would love to provide a response but there has been no info on shipping or delivery.  Have no idea when I will get it

I'm chalking this up to the current shipping/supply chain issues. When the clubs get here, they get here and we'll take them out for testing! No offseason here in SoCal, so it'll be doable regardless. My wife also got the PXG 0211Z set, so that driver will probably give a much more fair competition for the Honma to try and beat than her old boxed set driver would have been. (also probably worth mentioning we received the PXG clubs like 5 days after the order was confirmed)

My wife and I would love to be part of this test and give real world feedback.  If it can giver her a little more distanc,e and help me consistently reduce my fade, we are all in.

At my age of 70+ and still whacking it pretty good this looks like a winner I’d love to try

It would be nice, but as I have seen in the past if you are from Los Angeles, California you don't have a chance of being selected.  In almost all recent test most have come from the east coast.

Fascinating.  Honma catering to an exclusive market.   Very curious how this club compares to the common man's golf club.

So nice, this is so good looking! I am sure the performance will match...

Been fit and tried about 10 different drivers in the last 3 weeks. Saw SS jump 5mph with TM sim and mini driver(98 to 103). My fitters don't have honma, wasn't able to give it a fair test ☹️ Have access to GC hawk, GC quad, and trackman to compare values 😛

Wifey is pretty good, she hits it around 220-230 with her old cobra amp driver. 

And I love the gold finish 😎 I rocked a gold jazz driver for years as a junior

My swg spd is low enough for this to be a perfect fit for me and my wife who also plays about 10 rounds per month.

Very good looking driver ! Would be great to test on my vacation in Hilton Head and Georgia next week

I Play at Least 3X a Week and Current Utilize a Ping G400 Right Handed Driver Which I Hit Extremely Straight.  Many Thai People Utilize Homma Golf Equipment BUT I have never Tried.  Homma is a Highly Regarded Brand in Thailand.  I would Enjoy Testing the Homma Beres Driver as Well as My Female Golf Partner who is an 18 Handicap, She Also Plays 3X per Week.  Thank You

Would love to try the driver. I’m looking for a new one. Hopefully I’ll get the opportunity!
