When Justin Rose switched to using Honma equipment in 2019, he began using Honma T//World prototype utility irons on the upper end of his mixed iron set. As part of its PGA TOUR seeding process, Honma made the TW-U irons in 2, 3, 4 and 5-iron options, which were utilized by Rose, as well as other professionals such as Paul Casey. The TW-U irons were made to launch high and carry far.

With that TOUR validation, Honma created a full set of TW-X irons (4-10, 11) made with the same performance in mind: high-launching irons that carry farther and have more stopping power than standard blades or cavity-back constructions.

“The new T//World-X irons truly offer something for every level of golfer who appreciates a blade iron but wants playability, “said Chris McGinley, Honma’s Vice President of Product in a press release. “The full set can be played by low-single digit players all the way to mid and higher handicaps, and the long irons have already been put in play by the best in the world.”

Designed and created in Sakata, Japan, the TW-X forged irons have a hollow-body construction where the bodies are made from S25C and the faces are made from MS300 high-strength steel. With higher launch characteristics and higher MOI (moment of inertia), the new TW-X irons are made for “distance and performance for better players and discerning game-improvement golfers who want to play a beautiful blade iron,” according to a Honma press release.

The new Honma TW-X irons are available in 4-10 iron sets – the 10-iron is essentially a pitching wedge – or 5-11 sets, in both steel and graphite shafts. They will sell for $175 per club with steel shafts and $200 per club with graphite shafts.

TW-X irons are currently available for pre-order on Honma’s website and other retailers, and they will be available at select shops in the U.S. on June 17.
