For going farther in the world.
HONMA’s new Forge-cast Mesh & Rib Structure manufacturing process provides powerful deflection and resilience at the crown on impact. The clubface uses our new Ti- 5N material to achieve a better feel and reduced weight. This driver delivers all three components for superior flight—strong pull for improved initial acceleration, optimally- placed center of gravity (CG) depth for a higher trajectory, and optimum spin for direction. By treating sensitivity as part of the club’s functionality, our master craftsmen have developed a clubface that ensures ease of address and a smooth swing. This is the one gentle-hitting, resonant club that golfers have been waiting for.
- Player who is looking for higher trajectory with Low kickpoint shaft.
- Player who would like to swing exhilaratingly.
- Player who would like to reduce slice for longer distance in avarage.
- Player with Low HC but suffering from luck of power.
- Player who is suffering from slice and looking for straighter flight.
- Lady golfer who has higher swing speed than avarage lady golfer.
- Player who is looking for a forgiving club.
Achieving the ideal CG depth
In order to achieve the three elements that produce carry — increased initial velocity due to greater spring, as well as high trajectory and optimal spin through optimization of depth to the center of gravity — we have used the new technology and new materials noted above.
Effective Transmission of Power
The crown is manufactured using our Forge-cast Mesh & Rib structure. The forge-cast structure of the varying thickness created by the mesh and ribs improves rebound (resilience) from the force of impact. In the sole, the S-03 uses a mesh structure of high-strength G4 titanium to deliver a moderate level of deflection, amplifying rebound power and achieving an effective hitting angle.
Ti-5N, a World’s First
The S-03 uses our new Ti-5N material, featuring superior strength and lighter weight. Honma’s proprietary variable-thickness face design also offers an expanded rebound surface and improved durability
Maximum Use of Centrifugal Force and a Comfortable Address
Inserting the head shaft farther toward the outside circumference of the head increases centrifugal forces at the head during the swing, enhancing distance. Score lines on the surface of the clubface are oriented to the line of sight during address, enabling the golfer to comfortably address the ball facing the target and contributing to a smoother swing.
