TESTERS ANNOUNCED: Ben Hogan Ft. Worth Black Irons

Recommended Posts

Zach out of Las Vegas, NV

4.2 handicap


Current irons: 3-PW 2012 Taylormade Tour Preferred MC


Currently, I work at a golf retail store and a golf course while pursuing a Class A license. Luckily, I can still get out 4-5 times a week. A coworker of mine introduced me to Ben Hogan irons for the first time with his set of Apex 50s and they could easily be the best feeling iron I have swung (and I am very loving/bias of my MCs). I would love a chance to test and review the new Ft. Worth Black irons for the benefit of the Ben Hogan company, myself, and my acquaintances who may be looking for irons in the near future.

These irons are amazing - I demo'd the irons (7/P) with their demo program. Wish the test was longer so I could actually attest to the longevity of the black finish. However in the rounds that were tested - there was no blemishing of the irons, even from bunkers. Clubs were tested on Torrey Pines South.
