Leading Japanese golf brand HONMA has extended its super-premium BERES putter line-up with the launch of the P303 and P308 mallet models.
Made in Honma’s own factory in Japan, the new mallet-style putters have been designed to deliver increased stability over long and shorts putts, while offering a striking and confidence-inspiring appearance at address.
“The P303 & P308 models are excellent additions to the existing BERES putter collection that puts a premium on performance, looks and feel,” said Tony Scott, Head of Marketing at HONMA Golf Europe. “In the constant pursuit of perfection, our Takumi have applied the highest level of detail to the new BERES putters and we are confident that they will be popular with golfers seeking the very best from their putter.”
The fang-mallet style of the P303 putter, along with an aluminum sole, ensures weight is evenly distributed across the entire club face from toe-to-heel. This leads to a high MOI for increased stability throughout the stroke and a more consistent roll off the club face, even on mis-hit putts.
The forged, CNC-milled head features double milling across the face to ensure the ball remains in contact with the grooves for longer, enhancing control and delivering a soft feel on the greens.
Three sightlines run from front-to-back making it easier to align the putter to the target. This enables golfers to confidently make a smooth putting stroke, knowing that the ball will consistently start on its intended line.
The standard loft is 2° with a 70° lie angle, while the standard shaft is 34 inches long.
The distinctive T-shape style of the P308 putter provides a high MOI for increased stroke stability and forgiveness on off-centre strikes. By moving the aluminum sole weight low and back in the putter head, a deep centre of gravity is achieved to deliver optimal launch and spin, which has resulted in a 13% improvement in roll compared to the previous PP202 mallet.
The forged, CNC-milled head also features double-face milling for unrivalled control, as well as three sightlines and parallel alignment queues.
The standard loft is 2.5° with a 70° lie angle, while the standard shaft is 34 inches long.
Across both putter models, options range from the steel shaft version, to the more luxurious 2* to 5* putters that are graded on the technology and materials used in the handrolled ARMRQ shafts, plus gold and platinum embellishments in the clubheads, ferrules and grips.
Available across Europe from June in the Black IP and gold-plated finish options, the RRP starts from £629/€709.
