I’m thinking about it. They look fantastic sitting in a display bag, but the urge to hit them is VERY strong. I think I’ll regrip them with new Swing Rite grips and play a half set the next time I go out. I’m not sure about those woods, though. I don’t want to make them look any worse than they already are. But hey - tools, not jewels... except, these actually do feel like jewels to me, haha. The only clubs I’m missing are the Equalizer and 1 iron! I couldn’t believe how complete this set was when we got to the store. Ive never swung the Bounce Soles, but there are multiple versions of that set iirc, from this, to a Mac (I think) and then the actual Hogan Bounce Sole. To be honest, I never wanted the set because of the big “1+” stamped onto the club. Kinda funny how something like that can influence what you play/collect.
Thank you for the info! I knew Hogan worked with Macgregor (actually found a Parmaker 6 iron today) so I figured Slazenger must’ve come first. I cleaned these up a bit more and put some pictures on my Instagram. I really don’t know what to do - regrip and play a round with them, or never touch them again, haha. They sure are gorgeous though. Here are some more pics.
I reached out to them over Facebook but I haven’t gotten a response back.
Slazenger Ben Hogan Bounce Sole 1+
jrbmp33 posted a topic in General Q&AHello MGS, I recently purchased a set of Slazenger Ben Hogan Bounce Sole 1+ irons and laminate woods (2-9, SW; 1, 2, 3, 4) from the local Goodwill for a whopping $34. I’ve been collecting Hogans for 7 years now, but I’ve only ever seen Slazenger Hogans on the internet. I know they’re rare, and the only eBay listing I’ve found for the exact same set is 3-PW for about $2000. They have a shaft band that says “Made in Australia.” I have been searching for more information on these clubs for the last few days, but I haven’t been able to find anything. If you are or know someone that could tell me more, I would love to get in touch. I have no intention of selling these and they’ll probably be buried with me.
