The Next Generation of BERES from Honma
This Next Generation of BERES makes the renowned luxury brand more accessible to golfers who seek ultimate craftsmanship and luxury equipment without the ultra-premium price point of the brand’s marquee BERES 3-, 4- and 5-star models.
BERES Nx resides in the game-improvement category but appeals to a younger player than traditional BERES clubs. It can also be played by a broad handicap range, including better players needing stiffer shaft flexes. This new line features Honma’s lightweight holistic design that brings together speed and game improvement performance through its traditional integration of head and shafts being designed in tandem.
“This new line helps expand the BERES legacy to a new generation of golfers,” says Takahiro Suzuki, senior product marketing manager at Honma Golf. “That’s incredibly important to our company. It’s a rebirth and continuance of the legacy of the BERES brand that started in 2005. While maintaining the extremely high quality of BERES, we thoroughly pursued advanced technologies and generously adopted Honma’s primary technology related to speed and distance. The result is BERES Nx.”
Honma BERES Nx Driver
The next-generation, game-improvement BERES Nx driver – available for men and ladies playing to a 6-to-30 handicap – generates speed and distance. It yields plenty of forgiveness and sports a draw bias design that allows golfers to swing comfortably and still achieve added power.
The club generates high initial ball speed through a new clubface and crown structure. The “Nx Drive Technology” structure – consisting of a no-weld upper L-CUP face, solid carbon crown, hyper wide slot, and keel weighting– enhances the initial velocity performance for impressive flight and distance. Its radial face surface expands the toe and heel repulsion areas to the edges of the face, while X Lib increases the rigidity of the face’s outer circumference for more resilience.
Honma BERES Nx Irons
The Nx irons are designed to generate high ball flight and lengthy distances. And it is all due to their structure.
A wide sole eases turf interaction but also works in concert with a hollowed-out lower body that’s supplemented with tungsten weighting near the toe and a vibration-absorbing resin material behind it, plus an ultra-thin clubface – resulting in a high MOI, more impact repulsion, and a low-and-deep CG that together help generate high and straight trajectory.
Paired with strong lofts, this helps achieve lengthy distances. A Vibration Absorption 3D Emblem adheres to the back of the face, absorbing impact vibration to soften the feel and sound to be that of a forged iron. An L-CUP structure makes the face thickness as thin as possible and increases clubhead rigidity.
The integrated head-and-shaft design accelerates the head speed to improve flight distance and stability.
