The Verdict: Once primarily an Asia-only brand, Honma is attempting to make a push with its products in the United States. Judging by some of our testers' reactions, this club should find an audience. Known for its classic forged shapes, Honma offers this soft-feeling cast version that keeps the looks but adds some punch and forgiveness. The pocket cavity creates a lower center of gravity, making it easier to launch the ball in the air. Stronger lofts and a face that's firmer on the outside and softer on the inside neatly mix force and feel for distance with the ability to control.
