  1. Well I have to join this thread being the proud new owner of a set, 5-P, with a 50 and 56 equalizer. Shafts are kbs v tours 110 id estimate they’re about 1/2 to 1 club longer than my mp5’s. Shorter clubs closer, longer clubs bigger distance gains. Took them in to check specks and they were pretty close, basically within 1 to 2 ° of correct lofts and lies. I had them all returned to exactly where they’re supposed to be, except the 56 I dropped one to a 55, and now on the lookout for a 60°. I want them exact to begin with so I can truly compare, and also have a baseline of what distance they’ll go at correct lofts. the shafts were all 1/4” long. I’m guessing the factory tried sneaking that one thru. Lampkin grips. I honestly couldn’t tell if any of them had ever been hit. I’m a bit too lazy to post any pics, as the look just like the ads and videos. the V-soles are genius, really. Turf interaction was brilliant, and the feel at contact was superb. I’m guessing there’s some forgiveness built in because I hit a lot of great shots. They’re laser straight, so I’m not sure about trying to turn them yet, as I haven’t had a need yet. the feel upon contact is super nice, and the sound is special too, even one of my mates remarked that they sounded really nice after a nicely struck 5 iron. these clubs are the real deal, and I’ll check back in after the hunni moon is over to pass along anything new. But so far? Fantastic!
  2. Super nice wedges, you’re right. Shape doesn’t bother me a bit, I’m still in shock after today with how well the entire set performed
  3. Just got the Hogan Ptx Pro’s and a few equalizer wedges. So far (1 round) , fantastic. I don’t think they’re much longer than my Mizzy blades, but I think they’re a touch more forgiving. And they feel fantastic too.
  4. 77 today, first day with the Hogan ptx pro irons. They’re very nice...
  5. Windy - 79 but reached the 2 long par 5’s in 2 to day, actually the first time I’ve ever reached #15 in 2. Crushed the drive, then absolutely keerushed the 3 wood. Missed the eagle putts on both, but easy birdies.
  6. Funny part is that I know nothing about the equalizer wedges, so that’s almost a surprise bonus that might be cool
  7. A virtually new set of Hogan ptx pro’s on kbs tour V 110 stiffs, 5-P. With a bonus equalizer couple of wedges for $500 on ebay. ive kind of been lusting for a set of these for over a year
  8. While being a most wanted tester sounds good to the everyday golfers ears, I don’t think anyone appreciates just how much time and effort a tester actually puts in. cheers to ya cnosil, and the rest of y’all, a heartfelt thank you for all the work you guys (and gals?) put in. The results are always read by millions of users, and I would imagine, the manufacturers as well. Keeps them honest !
  9. Tight little 73 today, irons worked pretty well today, and the putter too
  10. I so agree!! (Sluggo tightens his flame resistant suit, and adjusts his Kevlar vest...)
  11. Played a demo today... meh the lst400 is better, and sounds way better but the 3 wood? Now that’s a beast
  12. I’d still like to see last years winner in the mix... testers will be different, etc, and all that is true. But it will still be hit by the same testers this time around, and one more club wouldn’t make that big a difference. And if it does, then I would drop a club that is known to not be in the top 3 or 4. It’ll still be apples to apples for this years testing.
  13. The same it seems as always. Somewhere between a 73 and 78ish. Been stuck at 4.1 forever it seems. im an inconsistent iron player. Good driver, decent chipper, decent putter. Short irons pretty good. But I murder them at the range... I guess I’m a range pro...
  14. Shot ok today... the bigger backswing doesn’t seem to work for irons as well as it does for woods.. one of the guys brought out a maverick 3 wood and it got lots of oohs and ahhhs. I hit it a few times and it seemed pretty long...
  15. I’ve been Vokey forever but taking a break with the sub70’ for the last year. Might be time to come back home... but tightwad me would probably go with some sm7’s on sale!
  16. Well, basically more bounce keeps the club from “digging”. So you get away with less damage from a chunk. But is that really “OK golf”? No, I don’t think they allow you to avoid fixing your swing. And don’t take this as a “stinky” answer as it’s not meant to be, but I think that thinking that shooting a 105 is OK, vs shooting a 125, is what allows you to avoid really fixing your swing. im guessing your scoring has improved dramatically with the “new swing” right?
  17. +7 front -2 back - for a 76 the hands higher on the backswing move is starting to produce some really nice shots
  18. Got on a long par 5 in-two. Missed the putt haha
  19. Ripped a few 3 woods off the deck today, hands higher... interesting
  20. Been working on getting the hands higher on the backswing, rather than behind me. Interesting...
  21. Tell me ! Went to the lake today, then came home and ordered $70 of shaky heads and Ned rig heads...it’s a disease...
  22. All my drivers have been driver of the year from in here. I don’t think the average joe who doesn’t dwell in here has any idea what they’re missing- and it’s too bad for them. Every topic golf is so well covered from so many angles...
  23. Cold and windy as heck today, jumped around the track due to pods of slow players so no score keeping. Just worked on making good contact. its amazing how much a hard wind moves a ball...
