John T., Toronto, Ontario

50, official Golf Canada +4 handicap factor.

Hogan EDGE 4-E Iron Set,  Hogan Apex Steel Regular Shaft 

TM Aeroburner 4-A Iron Set, Reax 88 HL (Steel), 2 degree flat lie.


Play 3-4 times a week at Lambton Golf & Country Club on the Valley course.  All par 4 and 3s.  Therefore I could easily use 4-E Irons Set exclusively from tee to green for review.  I used Hogan's for a very long time before switching to modern forgiving irons.

But now that I am a better player I would like to go back to forged irons with traditional lofts but more forgiving than forged irons of old.

I alternate between a set of Adams CB3 3-PW with Cleveland 50, 54, 58 wedges and Srixon z545 4-SW with 58 wedge. I use a Adams hybrid 3 when using the Srixon. Currently the Srixon are in the bag.


Really excited to see how the Hogan's compare to the two I game!
