An impressive option for the mid handicapper that prioritises feel and shot making, although there is ample forgiveness on offer to deal with all but the worst of strikes. Stunning looks from every angle and a strong, stable flight.

For 2022, Japanese brand, Honma, has continued to produce some of the finest looking irons that money can buy, with the release of the TW757 Vx only enhancing the company’s reputation as makers of some of the best golf irons in the world. Along with its sleek handcrafted looks, the irons are crammed with technology, with a forged cavity back design emphasising feel, distance and forgiveness.
Crafted from a soft S20 steel, the TW757 Vx features a seven-gram tungsten weight that is positioned in the toe, allowing for an extension in the club’s centre of gravity. Because of this, the face at address appears large, providing users with confidence for cleaner strikes. In fact at address, it is surprisingly inviting to look down on while still being compact and refined - clearly no metal has been wasted in creating the clubhead.
Along with the tungsten weight in the toe, Honma has also incorporated additional weight in both the heel and toe area, which provides optimum balance and a more consistent range of accuracy. The stability of the head is something we noticed during testing, where slight mishits held their line and still achieved good distance. With a 7-iron loft of 30°, it is geared for distance primarily and as a result, carries often exceeded 170 yards on a mid flight with fairly high spin helping the keep the ball airborne.
From a feel perspective, it doesn't quite have the zing off the face you get with the best distance irons, more a satisfying thud that the mid handicapper will really appreciate. Its forged construction is obvious, contributing to a dense sound and feels that leaves you keen to hit another ball.
Perhaps what is most impressive though, aside from its looks and feel, is the adaptability of the TW757 Vx, with Honma’s spec and shaft availability providing golfers with an array of different options to suit their game.
Honma may not have the reputation of the bigger brands on the market, but their premium feel and looks certainly compete with those larger names. If you are looking for an iron with stunning looks that is crammed with technology, then the TW757 Vx is a definite option.
