Hogan Equalizer Wedge

Here is an update as to how the wedge is wearing (probably 12 rounds with it now). Think I'm over the top much??  My course is not the best maintained and there are a lot of tiny rocks in the grass by the cart paths. I've found a few.....

Played with a guy at my club this evening that has a 54* Equalizer with a KBS Tour 90 in R flex. I tried it in several situations through our 9 holes. Full shots were high and short, which I attribute to the flex. Great turf interaction. Shallow divots. Around the greens, thesis thing was magic. Much better than the 56 with Recoil F4 that I just demoed for the last couple of weeks. I think my theory of needing a slightly heavier shaft and more swingweight in the shorter wedges has proven itself out. Probably ordering a 56 and 62 soon.

I've had mine (50/54/58) for about a year now and they are fantastic. I get good consistent distance on 1/2, 3/4, and full swings and they are versatile around the greens. Really feel like they give me a full short game arsenal.

I am truly shocked that there has been no discussion of these wedges in either this thread or the review thread in almost a year.  As long as they keep making them, I will keep buying and gaming them without even considering anything else.  Not being the longest or most accuate ball striker in the world, wedges are my key to being able to maintain a mid-single digit index and these are the best I have ever played.  Have a satin chome 50* and both satin chrome and BDM finishes in 54 and 58 degree wedges.

I just received a set in black.  I have the Ft Worth Irons in Black and that finish seems to hold up better than anything else I've ever played.

Just received a set of Equalizer wedges in Black....to match my Ft Worth Irons.  I've found that the black finish holds up better than anything else I've played.  I'm concerned about the irons having more bounce than I'm used to as I've been gaming a set of Japanese Yururi Gekku wedges

I have the 50/54/58...I played Vokeys before this that I had for about 8 years. Dead hands shots I like better with the Hogan’s because of the weight. Not as comfortable yet with the super fine touch flops and down hill 58 degree shots. The look and overall feel turned me into a Hogan fan. Have since got D/3 wood and Ft Worth 15s...they make a darn good product.

I had the 50/54/58 set up as well. I have the black finish and I love the 50 and 54 for stock shots, half, and 3 quarter swings. They both have great feel and work well through the turf. I had to get rid of the 58. Anytime I tried to open the face the club didn’t feel right to me. It worked well as long as I kept the face square. I am very satisfied with the other 2 wedges.

Reading the recent comments I'm now feeling a bit guilty about considering replacing my Equalizers with some Mizuno S18 wedges on sale.. (..still may splurge, tho .. I am a part of the Club Ho's thread 😄).

I get it, but also the S18s are just butter and of course, are just gorgeous. My *only* complaint is the grooves seem to dull a little quicker than I was expecting. But the 52* is my go-to, all-purpose greenside weapon and I'm giving serious consideration to buying the exact same wedges to replace them.

I don’t know what Hogan did different with the black wedges and irons. What is pretty cool about them is it seems like the face is a little more durable.
