Honma Golf Tour Athlete - 925 Irons 


This model heralds the return of the muscle back iron, now with advanced design features. The finely elaborated back features an elegant shape and a slope designed to lower the center of gravity. The traditional head, typical of muscle back designs, provides excellent playability. The head slips through grass with minimal resistance, for clean, sharp shots.

Honma Tour Athlete 925 Irons.
These are the most precise Irons ever made by Honma. Ease of playability is indicated in the Honma Irons range by numer 2xx, 3xx ....being the easiest and 7xx, 9xx being the most difficult/Precise striking of ball with Consistent swing. The peculiarity and uniqueness of 925 is that unlike other muscle backs with have thin soles and muscle being fairly thick in the mid of iron heads, 925's have Heavy sole, which helps getting the ball airborne easily as this has a lower centre of gravity. A great design feature which increases playability despite being Blade design.

What helped me a bit further to get a good result was perhaps the Nippon 950 steel shafts being lightweight, so the 5 iron weighs in at 405 gms!!
Other Honma Irons like 904 in 9xx series are cavity backs and presently 925's are the only true Blade Irons of uniform build as compared to Tourstage X-blades!
Triple satin plated for a great softness and feedback, this is as good as it gets on a retail counter product. Anything better would have to be from the Tour Van!! Worth every cent.
This serves anyone with a consistent swing upto 15 handicap mine being in 80's! One can opt for shafts variation like S200/400 or NS pro depending on choice and age!!
This is going to remain in my collection till it falls apart.
