Carlsbad, CA — Honma Golf proudly introduces an innovative trio of golf ball models to the North American market. Available this spring, the new TW-X and TW-S golf balls deliver top-tier ball speed, spin and overall performance while the D1 ball packs distance, forgiveness and durability at a price point and reliability that has helped make it one of the best-selling balls in the Asian market.
The TW-X and TW-S both sport a premium cast urethane cover that provides amazing spin performance on short irons, increased durability, and an extremely scratch-resistant surface. The cast urethane cover provides a soft feel with surprising durability, creating a ball that retains its resilience after rigorous use, from iron shots to bunker escapes. The TW-X and TW-S deliver exceptional feel shot after shot. The cast urethane cover bites into the grooves of the club face during shots at low clubhead speeds, increasing ground contact time and achieving high spin performance.
Honma’s 326 Dimple construction was developed over a rigorous three-year design process. The 326 dimples are intentionally aligned with a certain size to withstand strong winds with mid/high trajectory. This provides a highly stable trajectory for any shot. A simple yet sophisticated alignment design enhances player concentration. PRICING $36 dozen.
Improved Initial Velocity and Spin Performance Newly Formulated LD Core – greater distance, achieved by enhanced initial velocity from newly formulated Large-Diameter core. High Elasticity FLEX Layer – overwhelming distance by adopting high-elasticity FLEX in the layer that increases repulsion for more initial speed.
Evolved Spin Performance and Feel Newly Formulated LS Soft Core – the newly formulated Large-Soft core improves the initial velocity of the ball and achieves further distance. Soft FLEX Layer – a newly developed ionomer layer increases backspin on iron shots and provides a softer feel for improved control.
