Honma Golf Debuts the Next Generation of BERES: The BERES Nx Family of Woods and Irons
CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA – Honma Golf, the leader in beautifully crafted performance golf equipment, announces the North American introduction of the new BERES Nx line of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons. 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. Golfers will be thrilled by the reliable and consistent ball flight they get from BERES Nx.
“This new line helps expand the BERES legacy to a new generation of golfers,” says Takahiro Suzuki, senior product marketing manager at Honma. “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.”
TRUE linkswear to Debut All-New LUX Hybrid at 2023 PGA Show in Orlando, Fla.
Performance-Driven, Athletically-Inspired Golf Shoe Blends Tradition and Technology for Maximum Comfort
(TACOMA, Wash.) – TRUE linkswear (TRUE), purveyors of ultra-comfortable, modern golf footwear designed for the rigors of walking amid the elements, will debut the all-new LUX Hybrid at the 2023 PGA Show Jan. 24-27 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
The LUX Hybrid is a performance-driven, athletically-inspired golf shoe designed to look like a traditional saddle shoe but built with TRUE’s market-leading technology. With over 1,000 rounds of PGA and LPGA TOUR golf played in the LUX Hybrid by TRUE Ambassadors like Joel Dahmen and Christina Kim, high-level player feedback led to creating a comfortable, durable shoe that performs at the highest level of the game.
To create the LUX Hybrid, TRUE designers took the modern performance and heritage design from the LUX Knit and elevated the aesthetic, fit, and function. A leather saddle was added for a cleaner, premium, classic golf aesthetic with additional midfoot stability. The LUX Hybrid also includes TRUE’s new Achilles heel pad, its TPU heel stabilizer, and a high-retention elastic heel lock system for an elevated fit and feel. With updates to the midsole compound and insert and improvements to the overall construction – the LUX Hybrid is TRUE’s highest quality and most comfortable TOUR performance shoe yet.
The LUX Hybrid is available in three high visibility core colors, black, grey and white, and two limited heritage collection colors, admiral and cognac. Weighing 11.2 ounces (based on a men’s size 9), the LUX Hybrid is offered in men’s sizes 7-11.5, 12, 13, 14 and 15 with an MSRP of $195. It will be available at www.truelinkswear.com starting January 24th, the first day of the PGA Show.

SuperStroke Launches Next Generation Zenergy Putter Grips
Wixom, MI – SuperStroke, the No. 1 Putter Grip in golf and the leader in innovative Tour-proven golf grip technology, proudly introduces Zenergy, its next generation line of game-changing putter grips.
SuperStroke’s first new hero line in three years, Zenergy replaces the mega-popular Traxion line that has seen countless wins on professional tours – including numerous majors – since its introduction.
Zenergy’s multi-layer grip construction – with a soft, tacky outer layer for extreme grip, and a firm rubber inner core for crucial stability and feedback – was developed with invaluable feedback from the world’s best golfers. Designed to provide players of all abilities total, unparalleled performance, Zenergy’s proprietary technology adds unmatched confidence to quiet a golfer’s hands – and mind – during every stroke.
Zenergy’s new SpyneTM Technology has an improved, embossed ridge along the grip’s underside that guides golfers to natural, repeatable hand placement and making it easier to square the face at impact. Meanwhile, new Multi-Zone Texturing translates to strategically placed texture in high-sensory areas to optimize feedback and comfort from the incredibly soft polyurethane outer layer. This careful attention to variable textures and feels across the grip surface puts unrivaled control, responsiveness, and confidence in the hands of every golfer.
Patented No-Taper Shaping minimizes grip pressure with an advanced parallel design that allows golfers to quiet their hands and add stroke consistency. Located at the top of SuperStroke grips, the useful Tech-Port allows golfers to easily add game-improvement options, including the patented CounterCore weight system or performance tracking sensors.
Golfers will also notice that eight new colorways and redesigned graphics have been introduced to celebrate the arrival of the Zenergy grip line, including Orange-Blue-and-White, Purple-and-White, Grey-and-White, and White-and-Silver. SuperStroke has also made personal customizations (name, image or custom logo) available for the Zenergy line. SuperStroke’s personalized golf grips can be customized in a variety of ways using images, text, and colors to make something truly unique. The customization process is simple. After selecting the size and color of their SuperStroke grip, instead of clicking ‘Add to Cart,’ customers may choose the button next to it that reads ‘Customize Your Grip’ and follow a step-by-step process to add an image or text to the grip.
