Three channels in the centre, toe, and heel help return the maximum energy to the ball at impact, helping golfers with slower clubhead speeds achieve longer carry distance.
Visible weighting at the rear lowers the centre of gravity to give golfers confidence over the ball to hit the ball higher, for straighter drives.
The star rating system used by Honma determines the seniority of the craftsman who builds the club as well as the quality and type of materials used for that specific shaft. More senior Honma craftsman builds clubs with three, four, and five-stars.
Four and five-star clubs make use of T-1000 grade composite, the highest quality carbon available on the commercial market.
