Honma TW757P Irons Review – Good for High Handicappers & Forgiving?
The Honma TW757P Irons are multi-material cast irons that occupy the upper echelon of the game-improvement irons category.
Honma calls the entire TW757 line of irons “tour-inspired” which would probably scare off a lot of high handicappers and beginners. But we wanted to test these irons ourselves to really see what the performance was like.
So we did just that. In fact, we swung with the entire Honma TW757 iron family to give you a better idea of which ones would be better for your game. Take a look at what we discovered.
The Honma TW757 Iron Family
Along with the Honma TW757P Irons, Honma has also released the Honma TW757 B irons and the Honma TW757 vx irons.
The Honma TW757 B and VX irons represent the more advanced irons with different specs and more advanced features. The Honma TW757 VX has a forged design while the Honma TW757 B has a muscle back design.”
Are They Good for High Handicappers?
The Honma TW757P Irons come loaded with some essential forgiveness features that high handicappers have come to rely on.
While we wouldn’t say there is anything innovative about the design of the Honma TW757P Irons, we will say that they took a page out of some very reliable books. They didn’t stray too far from a forgiveness formula that works.
The Honma TW757P Irons feature an undercut pocket cavity that allows the face to flex more upon impact, pushing ball speeds. These are cavity back irons so they are inherently more forgiving than muscle back blades.
There are also tungsten weights placed in the sole and the toe of the Honma TW757P Irons which covers the areas that most players mis-hit. Finally, the L-shape face insert ensures that low-face shots still have a chance to fly far.
Are They Forgiving?
The Honma TW757P Irons will cover a broad spectrum of mis-hits for beginners and high handicappers
Again, they took a page out of the books of brands like Callaway and Taylormade and put the help where golfers need it most. The offset is moderate so you get a bit of help if you are struggling with a slice.
But the real help comes in the form of accuracy. Our testers’ shots were flying straighter even when they hit low on the face or out towards the toe. This allowed them to land, or at least get close to, the green from longer approaches.
So from an accuracy standpoint, they are forgiving. However, distance was only improved on errant shots. The Honma TW757P Irons won’t help you fly very much further than average even when you pure them
Differences Between the Honma TW757P Irons and the Titleist T100 Irons
The T100 irons also have tour-inspired appointments but are more forgiving than meets the eye.
Our testers noted that it was actually much easier to sweep the ball off the deck and get good launch angles from the T100 irons. They feature perimeter tungsten weighting for better balance and lateral forgiveness.
While the Honma TW757P Irons produce a lower, more piercing trajectory, the T100’s will be of more help if you need more lift off the deck.

Are the Honma TW757P Irons Worth it?
One thing we must say about the Honma TW757P Irons is that they give you something to aspire to.
They aren’t the longest irons on the market but they have a great feel and look. They are also very durable and the shaft options are fantastic. If you plan to stick with the game for a long time, the Honma TW757P Irons would definitely be worth the investment.
