Honma has opened 2022 with the debut of the Beres Aizu and Black collections to promote straighter, longer ball flight and increased ball speed.
“This new line represents the latest breakthrough technology for golfers with moderate to modest swing speeds,” said Janeann Lanning, COO of Honma North America. “Beres Aizu and Black allow golfers to make pure, stable swings with enhanced speed and powerful ball flight.”
Driver, Fairways and Hybrids
The Aizu and Black clubhead designs feature identical technology.
The Aizu line also adheres to traditional BERES 2-to-5 Star grading, with more advanced shaft technology as the grades progress).
Each driver features triple sole slots and an L-Cup face for powerful initial ball speed. Its centre of gravity (CG) design enables high trajectory, low spin, forgiveness, and distance. The draw bias helps correct fade tendencies associated with modest swing speeds.
The triple slots bend at impact and rebound to increase ball speed, even on mishits. The L-CUP face produces high repulsion across the face, maintaining an elevated CT value by not needing to weld the face. An evolved radial Ti6-4 face expands the toe and heel’s repulsive area, boosting mishit forgiveness. An ultra-low specific gravity titanium alloy, Ti811, thin-walled crown with varying thinness is used to impact deflection.
Fairway woods and hybrids also feature the new triple sole lot, thin crown, flexible face, and low-CG weight distribution designed independently for each head. Every wood offers enhanced distance through ample speed, high launch and draw-biased forgiveness.
Honma sought to create a high trajectory ball flight with the irons, along with forgiveness and stability on every hit – even misses.
A wide 3D L-Cup structure has a new ultra-thin face with vertical slits to improve the face insert strength – maximizing speed and forgiveness.
Coupled with one external and two internal sole slots, plus a low-deep CG, the irons are easy to launch high with strong carry distance. An 8620 Forged Body delivers offers enhanced feel. The 5-9 irons feature an L-Cup two-piece structure, while 10-iron through SW have a flat face two-piece structure.
2 Star ARMRQ MX shafts feature a T1100G bias ply that runs the full shaft length to maximize distance. Proprietary 10-Axis Sheet Metal Hybrid Armour Technology around the butt is used to delivers stability and control.
3 Star ARMRQ MX shafts include high-strength M40X – highly-elastic Toray Composite to efficiently accelerate clubhead speed. 10-Axis Sheet Metal Hybrid Armour Technology and T1100G add clubhead speed and stability.
4 Star ARMRQ MX shafts include high-strength M40X – highly-elastic Toray Composite that efficiently accelerates clubhead speed. Its 10-Axis Sheet Metal Hybrid Armour Technology and T1100G are used to add clubhead speed and stability. A lower kick point toward the tip increases swing speed and distance, while 24K gold is also part of the design in the ferrule.
5 Star ARMRQ MX shafts they have the lowest torque and most technology. A high-strength M40X, highly-elastic Toray Composite is used to efficiently accelerate clubhead speed. The 10-Axis Sheet Metal Hybrid Armour Technology and T1100G add clubhead speed and stability. T1100G in the bias layer strengthens twisting power and maximizes distance, while 24K gold and platinum can also be found in the ferrule.
Beres Black ARMRQ MX shafts feature a T1100G bias ply that runs the full shaft length to maximize distance. Proprietary 10-Axis Sheet Metal Hybrid Armour Technology around the butt delivers stability and control. They are also hand-rolled and finished in jet-black gloss.
