After introducing the BERES 06 Series at the beginning of the year with the BERES S-06 line, Honma has completed its range of luxury golf clubs with the BERES E-06 line. These exclusive golf clubs adapt the sophisticated technology and the fine workmanship of the master craftsmen of the prestigious Japanese golf brand, to the interests, characteristics and requirements of senior and lady golfers. They are now available in the golf shops, offering top performance to players with moderate swing speeds.
Designed with the most advanced engineering, they are manufactured by hand with premium materials such as latest generation titanium, which provides lightness and power; high strength stainless steel and tungsten for weight control; and the brand’s own shafts made with layers of carbon fibre and adjusted to each club in the set.
The clubs have faces which increase the speed of the golf ball and the forgiveness thanks to the Split Groove Area Technology (visible on the sole), enlarged sweet spots, and improved launch angles to launch the ball with height. And all this combined with the beauty and finesse of Honma Golf, with clubs that become exclusive jewels in the bag of their players. Here we introduce them to you!
HONMA BERES E-06 DRIVER
The BERES E-06 driver is easy and excellent: lightweight, powerful and easy to hit. It has been designed to provide superior forgiveness and maximum performance for Seniors and Ladies. The first thing that catches your eye is the sole, which has been designed with grooves. The engineers at Homna have been able to develop original grooves whose effect on impact is a more efficient increase in distance.
With a Ti811 light titanium body and a Ti6-4 titanium face, the structure of the slots acts like a spring in the centre, toe and heel (a technology called Split Groove Area), which helps to deliver maximum repulsion effect on the take off from the clubface on impact, helping golfers with slower clubhead speeds to achieve longer carry distance. The centre of gravity is set to be in a deep, low position, without the limitations of internal load or weight screw systems.
The shape of the head, shallower, and its centre of gravity makes it a very reliable golf club. That low centre of gravity, combined with a large projected area on a shallower clubhead design, provides golfers the added confidence to hit the ball higher, leading to better shots and lower scores.
The BERES E-06 driver comes assembled with the ARMRQ X 43 shaft for men, and ARMRQ X 38 for ladies, which are both manufactured with TORAYCA-T1100G multi-layered premium carbon fibre. The driver satisfies players looking for higher trajectories, with low spin, and its low kick-point makes it easy to catch the ball from the tee. As a result of the joint development with Nissei, Honma has created a shaft 1 gram lighter than the previous model, with the same frequency, and an increased strength, in this case, of 10 axis compared to the previous 8 axis. This leads to greater power, promotes improved ball launch angles and makes the shaft easy to control.
The E-06 for men has 2-star, 3-star and 4-star finishes for the clubhead and shaft, ranging from metallic blue to full gold; for ladies, the E-06 has 2-star, 3-star and 4-star finishes that range from deep red with pink shaft, to the totally golden version. The choice of luxury finish is in the hands of the golfer. The exclusive 5-star version is also available.
The BERES E-06 driver is available for men with 10,5º and 11,5º lofts, ARMRQ X 43 shaft (R and S flexes), and BERES Rubber III N36 Gold grip; and for ladies with lofts of 10.5º, 11.5º and 12.5º, ARMRQ X 38 shaft (L and A flexes) and BERES Rubber III N32 Gold grip. RRP: € 1,349 (3-stars).
HONMA BERES E-06 FAIRWAY WOODS
In line with the driver, the BERES E-06 fairway woods are designed to facilitate launching and reach maximum distance. Lightweight, powerful, easy… they are built with a SUS630 high-strength custom steel body, and a very powerful custom steel face. These clubs are distinguished again by the technology in the sole.
The structure acts like a spring thanks to the slots in the centre, toe and heel (Split Groove Area), which produces the maximum repulsion effect off the clubface at impact. In this way, golfers with moderate clubhead speeds see how they achieve longer carry distances. Here again the deep, low placing of the centre of gravity, without the limits of internal additions, contributes to the grip of the ball in the face at any power of impact.
Like the driver, the shallower size of the clubhead inspires great confidence at address so that, combined with its low centre of gravity and a large sweet spot, it is reliable for golfers looking to hit higher balls, leading to better shots and lower scores.
Again here the Honma ARMRQ X shaft has been chosen to achieve the maximum performance in its golf club category, made with multilayered premium carbon fibre.
The E-06 for men has 2-star, 3-star and 4-star finishes for the clubhead and shaft, ranging from metallic blue to full gold; for ladies, the E-06 has 2-star, 3-star and 4-star finishes that range from deep red with pink shaft, to the totally golden version. The choice of luxury finish is in the hands of the golfer.
BERES E-06 fairway woods are available in versions of 3W (16º), 5W (19º) and 7W (22º) lofts; for men with ARMRQ X 43 shaft (R and S flexes), and for ladies with ARMRQ X 38 shaft (flex L and A).
HONMA BERES U-06 UTILITY
Complementing the range of woods, Honma proposes the BERES U-06 utility, which we introduced in the presentation of the BERES S-06 range, and which helps to bridge to the irons from either the BERES S-06 or the BERES E-06.
These are golf clubs designed to launch the ball up into the air with great ease thanks to the new position of the centre of gravity and the weight of 12 grams in the sole, which simplify the action of squaring the ball on impact.
They are constructed in SUS630 stainless steel, a really high-strength alloy that provides maximum power in a thin and light head construction, for an improved repulsion that maintains its consistency.
The model for men has two versions, brown and gold, while the ladies’ model is deep red.
BERES U-06 utility are available with lofts of 19º, 22º, 25º and 28º, with ARMRQ X 43, ARMRQ X 47, ARMRQ X 52 and ARMRQ X 60 shafts (R, S-R and S flexes) for men; and ARMRQ X 38 (L and A flexes) for ladies.
HONMA BERES IE-06 IRONS
And completing the E family, the IE-06 irons are designed to offer maximum performance, through a low centre of gravity and increased forgiveness.
The new structure design of the clubhead has a low centre of gravity with a 20 gram Tungsten weight in the sole which helps to launch the ball higher. Its thinner and larger face (5% more than IE-05), together with the new head material (maraging stainless steel AM355P) provides an expanded repulsion area to increase the carry distance, even with low swing speeds.
The new design of the wide sole improves turf interaction from any lie. And the location of the tungsten weight on the back of the sole promotes a deeper centre of gravity.
The cavity design is also new, with a gorgeous appearance and high visual impact, providing a premium feeling that meets players’ high expectations.
Honma’s new ARMRQ X shaft has also been designed to match perfectly with the IE-06 irons. They are manufactured using TORAYCA carbon fibres specifically selected for this new shaft by the Japanese brand engineers to be able to reduce the weight of the shaft by 1 gram, maintaining the soft feel and consistency, while also reducing the backspin.
The E-06 for men has 2-star, 3-star and 4-star finishes for the clubhead and shaft, ranging from metallic blue to full gold; for ladies, the E-06 has 2-star, 3-star and 4-star finishes that range from deep red with pink shaft, to the totally golden version. The choice of luxury finish is in the hands of the golfer. The exclusive 5-star version also exists in this range.
Available IE-06 irons are #5, #6, #7, #8, #9, #10, #11 and SW, with ARMRQ X 43 shaft (R and S flexes) and the BERES Rubber III N36 Gold grip for men; and ARMRQ X 38 shaft (L and S flexes) and BERES Rubber III N36 Gold grip for ladies.
