I would love to try the Honma TWGS driver. I'm a big Honma fan, something about it works very good for my swing. I have a TW 747 driver a TW 737 driver, 7 5 and 3 wood in the TW747. And a TP-1 3 wood hybrid. I could give you a good comparison to the previous generation drivers.

Me, me. 

Eight handicap. Aging a bit. In need of speed. I'm ready, willing and able. [also right-handed]

Would love to test the Honma driver. I have a set of their irons.

Was stationed in Japan and remember seeing these in Nikki golf stores.  Never got one, but would love to test it.  It will take a lot to beat my current driver, but if it does, in the bag it goes!!  Cheers!!

Luv my TW747 4H! And definitely looking for anything that can help increase my SS as I'm 55 and getting into my slower yrs.

That's a sweet looking driver that i would love to game.

Honma drivers, because of the shafts are amazing,  I play the tw747 I'm 61 and avg. 270 off the tee, not as long as I used to, but not horrible.  And shot dispersed on driver, best I've ever hit fairways.

Signed up for this.  At 79, i definitely struggle to generate enough speed.  Still carry a 13 index, but it wasn't long ago that I was in single digits.  I hit my drives straight, but only about 200 yards and it puts a lot of pressure on my short game.  If this Honma GS can give me a little more swing speed, maybe I can start hitting irons to par 4's again. LOL

Another awesome opportunity from MGS and Honma. Glad to see them back with more testing as I can recall last years testing of the Honma drivers they were received very well and had some awesome feedback. Good luck to all those who are selected and looking forward to see how these work out for everyone!

Edit: Here is a link to last years... I understated how much the testers loved these. Can only be a great sign on things to come from this review opportunity.

I am surprised this hasn’t gotten the number of sign ups that the last couple did

I will freely admit that I signed up for this fully aware of the "U.S. Only" restriction.  Having said that since I am currently in Hong Kong for a while, I was hoping for some kind of special dispensation since I am a lot closer to where they are made and it is a HUGE brand here in Asia.  I was worth a shot!

I would love to test that. Since my fusion surgeries I have lost about 10 MPH on swing speed, down to about 83. Maybe time to give up on TaylorMade?

Very interesting to see how this testing group with feel compared to the Callaway testing group.

I've been using a Honma TW 737 Driver for quite a while now and have fallen in love with it.  It has a Vizard EXC-65 stiff shaft and I think it's one of the best shafts I have ever used.  I bought the 3 wood after my sucess with the 737 driver.  Same long distance and consistent feel with it.  Has the Vizard Type Z shaft in it.  Moved up a product year and bought the XP Hybrid.  Love it also has the Type Z shaft.  Would love to try one of their newer products to compare the consistency and feel.

Surprised to see less than 3000 sign ups for this based on how many signed up for the EPIC test.

I was thinking the same, logged in this morning expecting that testers would be listed.  Mrs Shapotomous keeps asking me if she got picked.
