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)

I would love to try this. I have a Honma 737 driver and would really like to compare them.

This is a really really cool opportunity!  Good luck everyone! 

Edit: Mods please follow up, I think this is a RH test only.   @GolfSpy MPR

Yeah - I just looked at their site - RH only. Darn another missed opportunity for me.

My swing speed can be timed with a sand clock.  Would love to try this driver.

My wife and I would love to test these, would give us an excuse to get out and play more golf together!

Currently have Honma wedges and a Honma hybrid so would love to try this out at the top of my bag.

Honma might be the only brand I have never had in the bag, but definitely wouldn't mind giving it a shot

Would love to do this with my wife.  However, my swing speed is moderate, I believe.  Been gaming stiff shaft drivers for a while, cut down, so may be stiff+.

This would be great to test! I’ve heard such good things about this company.

A Lefty here and not sure if a lefty is available?  Would love to test and give feedback .. 😀

In desperate need of finding the right driver.. maybe this is it?!? Would love to test

Oh man I seen “Honma” and “test” and got very excited, but sadly I don’t fit the bill. Swing speed is on the higher end, and my wife hates golf. More for me I guess! Good luck to all who apply!
