Anyone played these Honma balls before?

I bought the Honma TW-G6 balls a few months ago for a really good deal on eBay. They have a really nice feel to them. Flew long, and had lots of spin on the greens. The ball is 6 layers, so they claim the ball performs optimally in every aspect. Being a fan of JDM, clearly I like to have something that looks a little different, and the Honma balls are a nice change from the usual. At the price of $30/dozen, they are well worth it to me even if they didn't perform well, which they do. However, nothing earth shattering.

new titleist  semi fluro yello  v1x on sat. with the bridgestone   tour bx  and the old(er) tourstage x01z
maybe bec it was a newy and id not hit it I was  really liking the titleist.
again, absolultely no distingshing features I can mention it just palys well

its like the  diamana blueboard s73s, THE  yardstick  agaisnt all others for shafts  .

anyway  it was nice to play but its not my fave. the bridstone felt best
 tourstage is stil l the clickiest on the   club faces, I actually prefer that feel, the uber soft covers of the others kinda make u feel like  u didn't nut it , when u did esp  from a driver but from  an iron  the BS  tour bx  is UNREAL!!!!!

hard to  say bec they  are al lso good,  but  in   my mind I cant best   the  X01z  ......... still my go to's.

The TS X balls must be at least 3 to 5 years old now?  I read somewhere balls lose some of their properties after a few years?  Don't know how true this is of course.

That aside, I think tech in balls have improved tremendously over the years..  Even ol Jackie is complaining that ball tech needs to be held back to save the game.

Itís getting so good...free was hitting 260 yard singers into the wind today with the avx...that ball is just so damn long....Iím not a very fast swinger but Iím getting it out there...gotta be the ball baby...absolutely loved the TP5 and avx today...mostly avx cause it was windy and there so little spin off the driver with those...like cheating...

Received a trial sleeve of the 2019 Taylor made TP5 balls. Had it laying around for a while. Not sure why I never used it before. Tried it for the first time yesterday on the course. Gotta say this is a very good ball. Pretty long for me and very good in the wind. Feels very soft off the face and spins well around the greens. Really like it.

tried the new V1x felt like a rock to me compared to what Iíve been playing. Havenít tried the new V1. Iíve been playing the TP5 and 2019 Z Star the most and really enjoy both. Z Star definitely seems to spin more and launch a little higher with the long clubs and feels fantastic. Itís very sticky around the greens.

The TP5 is a little more penetrating flight and seems to be slightly longer and slightly less spin and also feels fantastic. I only have a sleeve of each left and Iím already having anxiety over what direction to go when I buy more balls. Not playing nearly as much as normal this year so probably ought to just grab whichever I can get cheapest and ride out the season.

I kinda wanna try the TP5x for the higher launch but donít want to give up the feel of the TP5. Same with Z Star XV.

Zstar is probably my 3rd favorite ball...itís so very good around the greens, lots of spin but controllable...nice and soft....not a marshmallow though...

Iím done with taylormade balls...trading a box of the new tp5x and a few sleeves of new tp5s for whatever avx balls anyone cares to trade...I do like the tp5x...strangely more than the TP5...the x is more consistent...maybe my sgi irons just donít do well with the TP5 but the ball was jumping on me...greens have been soft but still ripping it well past the pin and doesnít stop like the avx..kinda bounces...itís also been a little spinny off the driver...too high...

Will be moving to the KSIG 4 piece for social play soon.  Managed to get 4 boxes really cheap.  Its a very good ball to begin with though.
