Honma Intros TR21X Irons


A new distance iron from Honma Golf, the TR21X model, is targeted at players ranging in skill level from professionals to mid-handicappers.

Fast Facts Honma TR21X Irons:
Blade-like look
Foam filled hollow body
Internal tungsten weight
L-cup face
$188 per club NSPro 95 NEO steel shafts
$212 Sakata VIZARD graphite shafts

Honma has completed the TR family with the new TR21X irons that have a hollow foam-filled body and built for use by “competitive to mid handicap players.” These are players-distance category irons with very strong lofts—5-iron 23° and 10-iron (pitching wedge) 38°.

Weighting is low in the clubhead thanks for the head configuration and an internal tungsten bar of 42 grams in the long irons, 50 grams in the mid-irons and 73 grams in the short irons. Honma says even with the strong lofts they produce a high launch and a high resistance to twisting or MOI.

“The distance iron category is the fastest growing iron segment and the TR21X makes a bold statement of looks, sound, feel and flight that will bring a lot of confidence to players who put this full set in play,” says Mark Myrhum Director of Global Product. “Golfers can also take advantage of the exceptional long- and mid-iron playability and combine it with Honma’s high-performance TR20P, V or B irons.”

Combining with the previously introduced TR20 (P, V, B) models for a mixed set will attract some players or using one or more of the TR21X long irons as a utility club is also possible.

Announced at the same time were the TR21 FTi BIG-LB Fairway ($329), the TR21 F Fairways (($299) and TR1` H Hybrids ($249) all with Sakata VIZARD graphite shafts as stock.
