Have played various Apex, Edge & Edge Plus irons over the span of 30+ years. Excited about the possibility of putting Ben Hogan irons back in my bag!

I would appreciate the opportunity to become a tester and become more involved in the forum and community. I have a Flight Scope launch monitor to use in conjunction with playing 3-4 times per week. Furthermore, I have historical data on the launch monitor from several different makes and models of clubs to compare with the Ft. Worth irons.

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.

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.

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.
