Handicap?  This one always amazes me.  You guys are in the business/game and should know better - you can't ask a handicap without providing the slope.  You can ask for a handicap index which in this case is 8.9.  Would love to see you guys correct this "error"!

Irons = Callaway Epic Pro with New Dec Chev Platinum/Black/White/Green grips with +4 wraps and Project X LZ 105 (PTIP) steel 6.0 shafts

Mack Daddy 2 Slate 56 degree with 14 degree bounce

Mack Daddy PM Black 60 degree with 10 degree bounce

Ben Hogan Ft. Worth Black Irons


In the words of Peter Wolf - don't touch the knobs 'cause I think we're gonna have some fun with this one....


​This year marks the 65th anniversary of the Ben Hogan Company. The brand has has plenty of ups and more than its share of downs, but it's still with us and as a brand, it still maters.


With three new product launches this year, Hogan has firmly reestablished itself as a brand to be reckoned with, and we have a unique opportunity for 5 lucky forum members to test, review and keep a set of the sexy, new Ft. Worth 15 Black irons.


FtWorthBlack_Web_020 copy.jpg



The Ft. Worth Black, with its rugged Diamond Black Metal finish, is most definitely a player's iron. It's a 1025 forged blade, and Hogan says it gives the better player the feel, accuracy and consistency his or her game demands.


We're looking for 5 of you to test the Fort Worth Blacks and let the MyGolfSpy Community what you think!


This review opportunity is open to any golfer in the US, Canada or the UK. Sorry lefties - this one is for your right-handed brethren only.


FtWorthBlack_Web_029 copy.jpg



We take our Forum Member Testing quite seriously here at MyGolfSpy, and it's imperative you apply in the right place - which is right here in the Forum and NOT back in the blog.


To be eligible, please tell us - in this thread - the following:


First name and home state/province

Age and handicap

Your current iron set/makeup


Thanks for applying! We'll be announcing the testers in this thread next week, so make sure to check back to see if you've been selected.
