Honma has been releasing some amazing premium products and golf balls and is making a sincere effort to break into the western golf market and make a big name for itself.
Recently, Honma Golf launched their line of premium golf balls in February. This came just after this Japanese company bagged an equipment deal with the world’s number one Justin Rose which hit the headlines. One of these premium golf balls launched is the Honma TW-X golf ball.
The Honma TW-X is a great premium ball and serves the two most important things which any golfer wants from a golf ball, i.e., an extraordinary distance on the greens and an exceptional feel while playing.
It is a 3-piece urethane distance and spin ball providing you an improved feel and an extraordinary distance. The ball is made for golfers having a driver swing speed of 90mph or higher. The TW-X golf ball has a very high initial velocity NC core and is especially designed to produce greater ball speed while simultaneously maintain the control of the ball around the green, thus, providing you with best of both the worlds.
The cover of the ball is made up of soft urethane which helps in generating a bit of an extra spin around the greens which provides more confidence to the golfers so that they can be aggressive with their chipping as well as pitching in case they miss the target. The initial high-speed core not only give greater ball speeds but also an exceptional control to the golfer, thus helping in improving his/her game.
This golf ball has an amazing design and is made with a focus towards generating the desirable low penetrating ball flight which the golfers aim for, especially in the windy conditions.
The Honma TW-X golf ball has a high-velocity core which helps in producing high ball speeds off the tee. It also has a great spin control around the green. This is because inside the golf ball there is a high-repulsion mid-layer which creates low spin when hit with the driver/woods for longer tee shots. Also, the soft urethane cover of the ball enables the golfer to create more spin around the greens. With this ball you can commit to the demanding shots with so much ease and aim towards the pin with much more confidence.
It is a urethane distance and spin ball featuring a 326-dimple pattern, perfect for golfers with a moderate swing speed. The 326-dimple pattern design of the ball is such that it provides the highly desirable low penetrating ball flight, making it perfect to use on the greens in windy conditions.
As far as the spin and the feel of the Honma TW-X is concerned, it is medium. The handicap range of this ball is between low to high. The golf ball is available in one standard color, i.e., white and is a premium model.
If you are a golfer with swing speed of 90 mph or more and prefer a firmer feel and longer distance, this ball is just the perfect fit for you.
