Review: Honma TW737v Irons
Great feel and looks are found in many irons so why would you want to spend the extra $ on these irons? The big surprise that I wasn’t expecting; The Honma TW737v are distance irons too. They are 1 full club longer than most other “players” irons. Honma figured out a way to make a players irons look and feel great yet adding some real distance to each iron. They are only a degree or two stronger than some comparable irons, but yet go a full club longer. At first I wasn’t prepared for this when I put these in the bag, but I kept ending up on the back sides of the greens. I assumed it was just dry AZ greens that I couldn’t hold or that the temperature or elevation was affecting my distance gains, until I put these on my FlightScope and compared them to some other irons is when the light bulb went on that these are longer. Sure enough I went to Honma’s website and it was no fluke, they are designed that way. I can’t say there are too many sets out there like this that have a true players look, yet could be considered a distance iron.
One other really cool feature of these Honma irons is that they come with a 10-iron. Every time I got this club out of the bag, it put a smile on my face to hit a 10-iron instead of a Pitching Wedge. It is the same club in the progression of irons just stamped with a 10 instead of a PW.
The Honma TW737v is a players irons with great distance, but also has some pretty solid forgiveness. I’ve had numerous great rounds with these in the bag. They really like to fly straight, but can be worked when necessary. The cavity on these irons has a somewhat bold notched design. The unique look works to keep the ball headed in the intended direction and maintaining the distance. I’d put these up against any players iron out there.
They come with 4 stock shaft offerings; Vizard Graphie, Nippon NS Pro95, Nippon Pro Modus 120 and DG AMT. I went with the DG S300 AMT shafts. They have become one of my favorite shafts to put in irons. Their Ascending Mass Technology is using different weighted shafts to create a “flighted” like results. Easier to launch in the long irons because of the less weight and more control in the short irons because of the additional weight. They are then finished with a Honma “tour velvet” grip and come in at D2.

The Honma TW737v irons offer real world results that are better than their competitors. Honma may be know as a premium brand, but they are lining themselves up with what most other OEMs are offering. When someone asks you if those fancy clubs hit further and straighter? You can answer them with a YES. The TW737v irons aren’t purely vanity clubs, but true performers. They have a compact, minimal off-set, thin top line players iron look, with plenty of distance and forgiveness to boot. Sure this comes with a premium name, but in this case it does equal premium performance.
