    1. Just got the new 18 degree they released last month! Hit it and found that it gave me confidence at address and absolutely rips on pure shots with the forged butter feel, but I could definitely notice the hollow head in terms of pure swing weight. My tendency was a covered snap hook, I believe because my hands are used to pulling down the handle on heavy, minimal offset mp33s, and was just yanking the toe across at impact thanks to the light weight and the bigger offset. I thought having a steel shaft and extra half inch would give it enough weight but it didn’t. I was able to have success hitting low heel cuts by just chopping at it like a 5 iron but it’s not the level of command I want overall from a driving iron. I’m going to sell it and pick up a heavier driving iron that matches my blades.

    2. ? RICK, I have the Hogan FT irons, my longest iron starts at 23. I want to remove my hybrid and add a 20 degree, and was considering either the PTx or the FT hi iron. Can you tell me what the difference would be as far as feel, forgiveness AND size. I like the small heads of the FT's and don't like really large headed irons, but at 20 degrees I will need some forgiveness. Hogan is offering a free trial here in the US and I want try the irons out first, so I am looking for advice on ordering. Thanks

    3. A beautiful iron. Wish they would used a regular graphite,and a senior shaft. Been a blade man now 71 losing distances
      in the iron. I like these because of the weight lower in the club to get it up fast with more carry. Thanks for posting.

    4. My experiences were similar to Rick's. I have the Ft. Worth 15 irons down to a 31°, which I consider my (weak) 6-iron.
      Recently, I added the 27° in the Ft. Worth hi iron to my set to use as a 5-iron, replacing an old Taylor-Made Rescue (hybrid) 5-iron which I love. The problem was that my 5-iron hybrid would go maybe 20 yards farther than my 6-iron so I hoped that replacing it with one of the new Hogan irons would narrow that gap.

      However, like the hybrid it replaced, the Ft. Worth 27° hi iron does seem to go considerably longer than what I would expect from the 4° difference between it and the 31°. So the gap between my 5-iron and my 6-iron is still there. If I'm playing a course with small greens I sometimes have to decide whether I want to be short of the green or perhaps over the green. I will have to experiment with taking a little distance off of the 5-iron, perhaps by gripping down a bit.

    5. WOuld love to see you do a full course vlog using the PTX, You always seem to hit cavity backs better on testing, why not drop the blades and give them a go?

    6. I'd love to see you review the Hogan wedges. I know you say you don't use them, but I'd love to hear why. Maybe a comparison/review video?

    7. I think the term u were searching for is muscleback – I bet they do end up in ur bag (although no guarantees :-D)
      u would need to hit more shots but it looked like they were spinning just a little less than ur blades which might contribute to the bit of extra distance they were going.
      Nice clubs..not for me but nice clubs!
