Our Review:A brand well known in Asia, Honma is making an effort to break into the U.S. market.

Specs: 7-iron: 30 degrees; PW: 43 degrees
Price: $175 (per iron)

midA satisfying feel. Familiar, but powerful. Long irons are easy to hit. The ball gets up in a hurry.
lowIf 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.
