Honma TW-U forged stock shafts....

Recommended Posts

I picked up a couple of TW-U Forged,  #4 and #5 recently and was trying them out with the stock Vizard IB95 Stiff shafts. 

Though they felt wonderful and the club is overall very forgiving and a joy to hit,   I wasn't quite getting the distances I was used to seeing with normal 4 & 5 Irons.  With my 4 iron I usually get 180 or so carry which will take me to about 190 yards overall ,  5 iron is abut 170 carry and 180 yards overall. That was with my 24 and 27 deg Shinagawa MB irons.   With the same loft on these Honmas TW-U and provided that they have maraging steel faces, I would have thought I'd at least get like 10 more yards out of them easily... but that wasn't the case.    I'm guessing that the Vizard shafts are just a bit too light and spinny for me.   It goes super high and doesn't carry much and it doesn't roll much either.    It's an iron so I am not looking for uber long distances but I do want them to go the right distance.   So..  I am now re-shafting them with the Modus 125S that I had in my Shinagawa MB 4 &5 ...    In the past,  I have had experience where Modus 125 just went further for me compared to other lighter iron shafts.    Lower flight and likely lower spin too.    We shall see.

OK TW-U #4 is carrying 180 now , Good!!    but 5 iron is still only going 160 carry....  

It is waaaay more easier to hit than the Shinagawa blades is the same loft so I guess that'll do. 

The club now feels a bit better with the steel shafts compared to the Vizard shafts too which was a bonus that I was not expecting. 

In the bag they go!!    Okay!!  my two sets are all set for the season!   bring out the sun!!
