NOTE TO ALL: If you like the black aesthetic, which many of us do, and aren't familiar with "diamonized" black, this is the real deal! This is the crucial corner that other bigger OEM's cut when they decided to go with a much cheaper PVD finish that wears off after a couple of rounds and then looks like crud.


It's not actually a coating but a chemically implanted finish so it's literally part of the steel. I play clubs with a diamonized finish and after a year of pretty consistent use, the finish is virtually unscathed. Kudos to Hogan for doing things the right way on these stunning clubs and putting quality and customer satisfaction above the bottom line! 


Respectfully I'll be bowing out of this one as I'm currently in the middle of the testing on the Bridgestone Tour B XW-1 wedges. Good luck to all and whoever is chosen for this one, the golf gods are definitely smiling down upon you.

GHIN 5.5

I currently play a mixed iron set.  4-6 iron is the Wilson FG Tour V4, and the 7-PW are the original Callaway Apex Pro while using Steelfiber 110cw shafts.


I would love to test out these clubs, as I have been looking at these since the day you posted the "first look" photos.  I do a ton of courses reviews on Golf Advisor, so this would be an amazing opportunity to be able to finally do a product review, especially for a club I've been looking at for a long time.

      As some of you know I am moving soon and I need to clear out some of my equipment that isn't currently in my bag. 
      First up is my Ft. Worth Black irons. This set is 4-PW with Dynamic Gold X100 shafts and stock Ben Hogan Lamkin Z5 grip.
      This set was used for a review but was by no means abused during testing. 
      Looking to sell for SOLD.

      (4) TESTERS Announced:

      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 Chosen:

      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.


      As you all know, we take our member reviews pretty seriously. You'll be asked for a full two-month commitment to take these things to the range and the course, and follow a detailed template to write up a thoughtful, detailed and - most importantly - honest review.

      To apply, tell us in this thread (and ONLY in this thread!):

      First name/Home state or province
      Current wedges
      Short game strengths/weaknesses
      Current handicap

      The Testers have been selected. Please congratulate!!

      From today's InBox -- very similar the Bridgestone's program.  Seems like a smart move as Hogan continues to inch forward...
      Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company Launches Club Demo Program 
      FORT WORTH, Texas, January 3, 2018 -- Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company, LLC, manufacturer of premium golf clubs and golf bags, announced today it has launched a Demo Program to allow golfers to try its premium line of golf clubs before they purchase.
      "We understand that many players want to touch, feel, hold and, most importantly, hit new golf clubs before buying them," said Scott White, President and CEO, Ben Hogan Golf. "We are completely confident that when golfers compare Ben Hogan irons or hybrids to their current clubs, or other clubs they may be considering for purchase, they will prefer premium Ben Hogan products."
      In recent months, the Company reorganized and implemented an innovative 'factory-direct' distribution and pricing strategy. The Company remains committed to producing the best-performing and best-feeling golf equipment in the world, and now sells Ben Hogan Golf Equipment direct-to-consumers exclusively online at www.benhogangolf.com. This distribution model allows the Company to offer serious, avid golfers the high-quality Ben Hogan products they have come to expect from the Company at factory-direct prices with no retail mark-up.
      The Demo Program is simple and easy and provides golfers with the opportunity to try Ben Hogan products at no risk or obligation. The golfer can choose the model(s) and shaft they would like to try from the drop-down menus shown on the website. At this time, demo availability is limited to products with 'stock' lengths, lies and grip specifications.
      The customer's credit card will be charged only $20.00 for round trip shipping, and a deposit will be held on the card until the clubs are returned. A pre-paid UPS Ground return label will be included in the box. The golfer has fourteen days from the date of order to try the clubs, then return them to the Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. Demo club availability will change on a daily basis.
      According to White. "We know that serious, accomplished golfers understand technology and appreciate the performance of our award-winning clubs, and we are pleased to give them the ability to easily demo our clubs to determine which model works best for them. Unlike other scenarios where clubs are hit into nets or at a manufacturer-specific Demo Day, we want to give the golfer the ability to test our products at his/her leisure, at their own course or range. We want to make this process easy and minimize any stress like high-pressure salespeople and Tech Reps."

      I was told by SWMBO that some of the the golf equipment clogging up my garage has to go. It's not easy letting go, but I thought I'd give the fellas at MGS first crack.

      First up is my '99 Hogan Apex/Apex Plus flow set. These are legit. They have spined TTDG S300's and mixed grips. Set is Apex blades from 7-E and Apex Plus cavity irons from 4-6. I'd call the condition a solid 7/10. Grooves are clean. These have the normal bag chatter that you would expect from a nearly 20 year old set of forged irons.

      Asking $100 +10 to cover some of the shipping.

      I'll add more as I get time.
      I also need to find a home for a couple of putters that do not get along with me.
      One is a 34.5" Evnroll ER1. This club is great. Just not for me. I cannot get used to the speed. Condition is a very solid 9/10. Comes with headcover, but no ball marker. (fell off mid round)

      I am after $250 + $10 to help cover shipping. PM me with questions.
      The last thing I have for now is an MLA Tour Mallet.
      35" in nearly new condition. There are no weights. I lost them. Sorry. Replacement weight kits are available from MLA for $30.  Comes with headcover.

      Looking for $125 + $10 for shipping.  
      Thanks for looking!!!
