Honma

XP-1

Our Review:

A brand well known in Asia, Honma is making an effort to break into the U.S. market. Seeking the appropriate combo of power and precision, the XP-1 uses traditional looks with meaningful game-improvement tech. The combination set includes hollow irons in the 4- through 7-irons with tungsten weighting low toward the sole for higher flight. The rest of the set, up to a 48-degree 11-iron (yes, an 11-iron), are traditional cavity-back designs. Read more >>
Price: $175 (per iron)

Low-Handicapper
If you aren't a single digit and want to know what it's like, use these. They aren't as rip city as the longest ones, but they're so stable from every lie.
Mid-Handicapper
A satisfying feel. Familiar, but powerful. Long irons are easy to hit. The ball gets up in a hurry.
High-Handicapper
The dimensions give me a sense of support without it being too bulky. Really got the ball elevated to a nice high trajectory quickly.
