Michael, Illinois

Handicap: 15

 

The longest iron I am comfortable hitting is my 5 iron. I have a 4 iron in my bag, but I am terrified every time I have to take it out. I have a hybrid that I will hit most of the time from 200 or so out, but every now and then, when my hybrid is too much club for a specific shot, and I need to use the 4 iron, I never feel good about it.

2 Iron

 

I have played irons down to a 1 iron in my MP14's years ago, but have switched to hybrids in recent years, searching for higher flight and more forgiveness.  In the last 2 weeks, I have put the 2 iron back in the bag, and realize how much I have been missing it.

MmmmmmmBuddy, I put the 4 iron back in my bag (now have several hybrids in the garage) and absolutely love it with the new Cobra King F6's

Hello,

 

I'm Scott from Mississippi

Handicap: 12

I love hitting long irons. I'm not a hybrid hater but am more consistent with irons. Current set (MIzuno) only goes down to a 4i but i have an old driving iron that I use when driver is giving me issues or playing a shorter course. 

 

By the way, these are very nice looking irons.

Time to announce our testers for the FT WORTH hi long irons from Ben Hogan!!!

 

This was a tough one - another new record for applications made the Selection Committee put in overtime, but we're pretty happy with our testers.  They are:

 

BryanS

 

jacustomgolf

 

chershey

 

 

And, as an added bonus, Hogan wants to include 3 members of last year's team that tested the FT WORTH 15 irons. So these three gents will be joining in on the review:

 

Mike Z

 

Jmikecpa

 

Sschaffer24

 

This will make for an awesome review thread -- we'll get a fresh perspective as well as a comparison from testers who've already tried the standard FT WORTH 15 long irons.

 

Congrats to the testers!  You'll be receiving a PM later today with initial instructions!
