Honma TW-X irons

Available in 4-10 and 5-11 set configurations, the new Honma TW-X irons ($175 per club steel; $200 graphite) were inspired by prototype utility irons introduced on the PGA Tour in 2018. Then called TW-U, the utilities were a hit with some big-time players (Justin Rose carries the 4-iron) and have since become a full set that provide “players distance” performance including fast ball speeds, high launch, and plenty of distance.

Features of the new TW-X irons include a muscle back design for enhanced feel and feedback, a forged hollow construction with high-strength steel clubface for high MOI forgiveness and distance, and the top-notch fit and finish normally associated with Honma irons made by the company’s staff in Sakata, Japan.

“The new TW-X irons truly offer something for every level of golfer who appreciates a blade iron but wants playability. The full set can be played by low-single digit players all the way to mid and higher handicaps, and the long irons have already been put in play by the best in the world,” said Honma’s Vice President of Product Chris McGinley.

The new TW-X irons are available now for pre-order on and will be available in select retail locations on June 17th.
