(6) Testers Wanted!!!


Ben Hogan VKTR Hybrid - bnr copy.jpg


Ben Hogan VKTR Hybrids



Hybrids are funny clubs.


For some, hybrids are true long iron replacements: easier to hit and designed for a specific distance. For others, hybrids are really just min-fairway woods intended for maximum distance.


The Ben Hogan Company says its new VKTR's, while no slouch in the distance department, really are long iron replacements because, after all, #precisionisback!

Testers Wanted:

Even though the name sounds like a Cold War-era Soviet tank, Hogan says its VKTR is designed with the better player in mind: a tour-inspired head shape that gets progressively smaller as the lofts get higher, 4 moveable weights to create the shot shape you want and a very Hogan-like 11 different lofts to dial in the distance you need.

How do these new Hogan hybrids stack up against the big boys? We're looking for 6 of you to try out (and keep) a set of  two VKTR's and tell us what you think.

How To Apply:

MyGolfSpy needs 6 avid golfers to test and review the VKTR hybrids. As you know, we take our equipment testing very seriously here at MGS, so please read the following instructions very carefully.


In this thread, tell us the following:


1. Your name, home state and current handicap


2. What 2 lofts would you like to test (If you need help, visit Hogan's Online Performance Center)


Easy as can be!  We'll be announcing  the testers in this space next week. Good luck!

Very interested in these. Had a look at the Hogan website recently, and I like the sound of their approach to club design.  Currently don't appear to be available in Australia, so I would love an opportunity to review them.

Sort of related - just demo'ed a trial pair of TK15 wedges. Very impressed with the higher lofted one (tho they didn't send the lofts I'd requested so couldn't compare them exactly to what I'm playing now) .. definite contender to replace the aging, beat up sticks I cannot yet seem to give up...
