PMookie’s 2nd Honma Fitting Experience

Recommended Posts

What was the upgrade cost for the Ventus? I got a TR20 460 for a great price with the stock Vizard 60X. Just want to see what the cost would be to tighten up dispersion

$250 if I remember correctly.

Looks like an awesome setup! I wonder what happened with Justin Rose and Honma - huge loss for Honma in my estimation. I have always had a slight bias against them (and Ping for that matter) because they pushed in-house shafts; it felt a little gimmicky. I’m glad you had a great experience with then though, and I’ll have to check them out next time there is a demo days around here.

Awesome review/write-up @PMookie!  Perhaps I missed it, but I'm curious what drew you to Honma?

A fitting that included the T World 747 V irons, and then shortly thereafter, an Instagram post that announced their Fitting Van Experience launching for 2020. The irons were the best in my fitting, and when I saw the new driver pics, I knew I wanted to try it as well.

You can see they were taken to the range. I hit all of them.... Not ONE went left, which had been an issue with the Srixons, and was a major goal of correcting in the fitting. I also went out to #1 & #9 and dropped balls at 160, 150, and 140. 1 was straight down wind, 9 was dead into it. None were lost left! Great early sign! I chipped with the PW around the green and I loved the feel and performance. Long way to go yet, and their first full round should be Wednesday in E TX if the rain holds off.

Here’s a pic of the PW. Three straight strikes in the same exact spot. Yep, a tad high, but center, and all right on top of each other.

Those look gorgeous! I'm glad to hear they finally arrived and you've been able to hit them. I'll be looking forward to hearing how they perform on the course Wednesday.

Honma has really impressed me with their customer serviced with you.  They really seem eager to take care of their US clientele.  What is the black cloth in the bottom of the photo?

Face covering, or “buff” as they call it.
