Honma TW-X Ball Revealed

A few weeks after shocking the golfing world by signing world number one Justin Rose, Honma, the premium Japanese golf brand, has just introduced a new golf ball to its range of products.

The TW-X is a three-piece urethane ball with a high-velocity core designed to produce high ball speeds off the tee as well as spin control around the green.

The high-repulsion mid-layer creates low spin with the driver whereas the soft cover allows you to create more spin around the greens.

“We’re really excited to be bringing such a premium golf ball to the European market,” said Tony Scott, Head of Marketing, Honma Golf Europe.

“Given how well the TW-X ball performs, we feel that it’s a great product at a very competitive price point that golfers will be keen to try.”

The soft urethane cover provides high levels of spin on greenside shots, so the golfer can commit to the demanding shots aimed towards the pin with confidence.

The 326-dimple pattern design provides the highly desirable low penetrating ball flight, which is ideal in windy conditions.

Honma was founded in 1959 and have been making super-premium clubs and products ever since. It is now looking to fully establish itself in the European market.

Available from February from approved retailers, their new ball will cost £26 per dozen.

Rose has signed a ten-club contract with the brand, putting their Prototype irons (pictured above) and wedges in the bag. He has also said he may switch out his 5-wood for a TW-U utility iron made by their craftsmen.

Paul Casey has also been testing a variety of Honma clubs, including woods and the same utility iron Rose has in the bag.
