great job putting this spreadsheet together. As a quick reference, maybe add the averages for Right, Hit, and Left.

Good catch, meant to do that.  Edited.

What are your current gamer drivers that you'll be pitting the Honma against?

Anyone have the ability to put both in front of a trackman/Foresight/etc?

Current is a tour Edge XCG7 beta, and I have a buddy with a Sim, but will take them both to the course as well

Let's go boys!

I took a pretty good mountain bike spill yesterday afternoon and have some bruised ribs, but should be able to swing it this evening after a few beers and some ibuprofen

First shot with a Vice with dog teeth marks went 302 down the middle. Then I hit a Pro V1 on the next one and 💣🤯

I think the most wanted test was just the start of people taking Honma seriously... sneaky suspicion it’s gonna blow a lot of people’s minds

Since I am one of the most wanted testers, I get to compare their products side by side with all the other brands. Their drivers were some of my favorites and their irons are very nice and near the top of my list.

I would draw the line at the Beres range. The thought of a club with 24k gold and jewels is too much for me.

Currently gaming a Titleist TS3.

Plan is to get on GCQuad hopefully a few different times

Absolutely love my TS2 and opted against the Honma review ... didn’t want to put any type of jinx on it. 

Both excited and curious to see your feedback.

Had the Sub70s a little over a month but loving them so far. They are a couple degrees flatter than my old mizunos so it's taking some time to adjust to the distances but they feel really good! 

 

I haven't had to hit them too much with the Honma in the bag so far because I've had a lot of wedges in to holes.  Also the Honma is really shiny!

I wasn't able to get to a course yesterday so I had to settle for a range session.  I took my time working from the bottom of the bag up, wedges and even irons, hit three drives with my gamer, and then unveiled the TR20.  My first drive was a little low on the face but dead straight and long.  From there I hit maybe 25 drives and, without the benefit of a launch monitor, I can share some initial impressions:

1) This is definitely longer than my gamer.  How much, not sure yet, but this club gets it out there for sure.  The ball seems to really jump off the face.

2)  I've got a little bit of dialing in to do.  My normal ball has been straight or a slight bit of draw; last night I was hitting the occasional straight ball and a lot of pushes to the right.  My gamer was set up a degree closed and set to a draw bias, whereas I took this to a range in the stock setting, with the heaviest movable weight back for max MOI.  This morning I closed it down a degree and will see how that does tomorrow when I actually play it for 18.  I don't intend to move the weight to a draw bias unless tomorrow's round suggests I need to.  That said, the weight port in the heel is still actually pretty far back, as you can see, so I suspect any MOI loss would be minimal.   

IMG_3943.jpg.050e22b74bb7eb609ff9616e0b3fd087.jpg

Regarding that loft/lie adjustment, I'll post about that later, but much has been made of how different their system is.  It is, but it's not rocket science...simple enough, and still like the aesthetic benefits of the smaller adapter.

Overall, I'm liking this club a lot.  The sound and feel are fantastic...but does it perform?  Gaming it for the first time tomorrow!  Can't wait to answer "What's a Honma?" ten times...
