4 handicap

Cleveland RTX3  50 54 58

My short game is my strong point I can get up and down with the best of them. My 54 is my go to club anywhere from 105 yards in unless in the bunker.I will use it to chip even if I am only 1 foot off the fringe. I would like to try these wedges compared to my gamers now

Thanks

Ben Hogan Equalizer Wedges

Another week, another review opportunity for you, fellow Golf Spies! And we think you're going to really like this one.

 

There's been plenty of chatter here and in social media on the new Equalizer wedges from Ben Hogan. 1025 forged, enhanced V-Sole, Progressive Center of Mass - there's a lot here to get you intrigued, and we want four of you to test, review and keep a 3-wedge set of Hogan Equalizers, and let us know if they're the real deal.

TESTERS WANTED:

 

Four of you will be chosen to review a 52-56-60 set of Equalizers with your choice of shafts offered by Hogan. In addition, Hogan will tweak the lies and swing weights to fit your specs. And if you need the lofts adjusted a degree or so, they'll do that, too.

 

This review opportunity is open to any avid golfer in the US and Canada.
