SNEAK PEAK! New Hogan Irons Seen Here FIRST!


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I believe the starting price is $149 a club in steel.   Doesn't it say that in your preview letters?

 

Shaft choices are the same as in Scors, I believe.

 

The best thing about the "sell by degrees" is no more arguments over jacked lofts!  Your loft is your loft.  I'm aiming for a 23, 27, 31, 35 myself.   I think I'll keep my SB 3 and 4 and my Scor 40, 45, 50, 54, 58.

Now that I've seen these I'm still not excited about them...

Maybe it's just me, but I don't like the blade on blade look and the angular protruding muscle. I'll take the Scor look over that any day. It could grow on me I guess. It's just preference. I could

OK, we need to somehow combine these Hogan threads or decide on which one to use.  Too many to keep track of.

 

I like the Fort Worth irons, but I am glad I have the SCORs vs. the TK wedges.

Since I only need 5-8, buying each club is not bad, but maybe someone could ask if us SCOR guys will get a break on the starting price.

"Shaft choices are the same as in the Scors, I believe."  I hope.  Will they be the same UST shaft with the same Genius marking or will they be marked as "Ben Hogan?"

Which is basically "Genius 12" and "Genius 10"   KBS 110 and 90 respectively, plus the recoil.   I hit the 90's in my 40 & 45, the 110's in the rest and will get 90's in the 5-8 in order to get them up.

 

Yah, we do need the mod's to merge the 3 separate threads.

Price hasn't been in any of the emails I've received. Although $150 per club makes sense. You would think there would be some type of discount at some point through either MGS or being a SCOR owner which is why I'm hesitant to pay full price for them. I played some frozen golf again this morning and the more I play the S55s the more I like them. Decisions, decisions.

The Recoil is a nice shaft.  Wonder which model they are using.  Does the Hogan iron  have the tapered hosel or is it the .370?

 

I was told by SCOR last fall that their Genius 9 graphite shaft closest resembled the UST ProForce RV2 95, but I just went to the UST website and the RV2 95 is gone.  The RV2 75 is still there.  Makes me think they discontinued the 95 with the Hogans going with the Recoil.  But most Recoils are tapered, so likely the Hogans are also tapered.  Lots of Recoil models.

Just wait for your insider offer to see how far the $500 will stretch.   At least 4 clubs worth I'm guessing.   If you don't want yours, I'll buy you out.   I've seen enough to kick myself for not putting my $500 down.

We'll have to see what happens next. It would be cool if they had the HoganFit or something opened up for us.

Also Mark, if I'm not mistaken, I think you can still put the deposit down through the SCOR website. It should come up if you still have the first email they sent out about the reservations.

I will go see, but would I get the pre-peek discount?  I doubt it.   Clubs don't arrive till April anyway.  I'm only buying 4 clubs tops.

Not much reaction aside from the lofts on the soles. Hogans had iron #'s on the bottom, didn't they?

I don't see these doing well. Just not much there to react to in order to drive sales in a really crowded market.

Put iron numbers and not lofts. It's already slow enough without people trying to figure out what's what

Whirlwind day - got some info from the Hogan folks - $149/club with steel shafts, $169 with graphite (I think). They will have options - like if you want a c-taper for something else.

 

They want to work through pros and fitters, so they won't be in your typical retailer. They'll have fitting carts, but no local stock - be like Ping - you order, they build em and send me to you. Looking at early April for availability.

Sorry, but I don't see this model doing well honestly. The boutique model of them not having them readily available for people to try isn't going to do well. Wedges, okay. Driver. Okay. Putter, yeah they work. But you want me to drop the coin on a full set without ever seeing or touching them? Nah, they need to at least get these at green grass places and offer on course demos. Just one man's opine though

The design doesn't wow me.  I haven't read what the design is supposed to do.  Whether actual or marketing.  Also i don't know how I feel about the lofts on the bottoms instead of numbers.  I get matching the exact lofts that people say but what if their fitting system is off and you do have to bend the irons.  Also people could need the irons bent if their game changes.   Whether it is the lie or loft.  I would still hit them like everything else at the demo day.

The more photos I see (and there are many more on other sites) the less "angular" they look.   The muscles shift from club to club, but I doubt the muscles shift with EVERY degree of loft like they do in Scors.   If they do, then you truly do have 44 clubs, not just 10 which shift in 4 degree chunks.

Hey can somebody get a good photo of the backs of two clubs that are only one degree apart in loft so we can see if they change the muscles or not?

 

NEVERMIND -- I just saw on the website that they change only every 4 degrees for 11 different clubhead shapes.

So at what degrees do the muscles change?  If I get 3-4 clubs, 4 degree differences, each would be a different shape?
