Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: When making irons that are designed to appeal to the very best players—even irons that feature distance technology—the natural tendency is to make them forged. However, this overlooks how soft a cast iron made from 17-4 stainless steel can be. Honma used the material for its 4-iron through pitching wedge before transitioning to an all-carbon-steel head in the gap wedge for improved feel on shots around the green. The thin L-face (which wraps around roughly half of the sole) features variable-thickness regions. This allows the face to flex better on off-center strikes while delivering more mass on center strikes. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: The company believes its irons are the pride of its brand, and this one serves as an example. In a nod to better players, the irons are a quarter-inch shorter than most mainstream irons and a degree flatter—a combination that functions well for players who come into the ball a little shallower with a sweeping motion. For players desiring graphite shafts, Honma’s own Vizard IB-WF (Iron Bolfa Weight Flow) is a stable, lightweight shaft. With options ranging from 50 to 100 grams, that shaft can be had for only a slight upcharge. Read more>>

Player Comments
High-Handicapper
"Like the fierce, edgy look to the back cavity. Energetic. Feels lightweight and swift through the impact zone. Ball very electric off the face. Effortless power. Penetrating ball flight. Above average distance."
Handicap, 14
Low-Handicapper
“These are crazy. The feel off the face is like you’re hitting a shuttlecock off a badminton racket. There’s no digging whatsoever.”
Handicap, 0
Medium-Handicapper
"The smoother you swing the farther it goes. Some effortless power. Really like the way the ball jumps off the face. Even if you didn't feel you hit that great you got a good result."
