I'd be shocked if they release a driver without releasing fairways and hybrids.

Not a clue. They do have the VKTR hybrids right now.

I commend the Ben Hogan company for what they are doing, but some of the stuff is odd.

We could go a year before we see a FW or a week.

I remember them asking what people wanted to see last year, and the BH ball was a hot topic, as were drivers, fairways, and hybrids.

Everyone wanted a 18° FT Worth Hi and they made one.

Probably only a matter of time.

The 18* hi was smart. I’ve never swung a long iron that was easier to hit...especially at such a value.

They’re due for a refresh on the true blade but will likely the Ft. Worth black a chance to fulfill its cycle.

As far as the driver, I don’t understand that choice at all. Few companies can really pull it off from top to bottom with a complete line. Someone somewhere clearly knows what they’re doing.

If they can have a low price point and compete with the big dogs like they do in the other categories, I bet they sell out quickly just like the 18° FTw Hi did after launching.

 

I mean $700/$735 for a set of irons compared to $1200+...

 

If the Driver is fairly priced at the $250-$350 range it will be a huge hit for them. That puts them far below most other drivers.

 

But with the putter launch being $250 a club the driver might be slightly higher.

 

That is just purely speculation. I have no idea how much it will be. 3 days and we’ll know.

I completely agree. I’d be surprised if it weren’t a $299 driver to compete with Tour Edge.

Be a good bet I’m sure. They have my attention.

Now that it’s official on their site, a driver and a fairway for $300 & $200 respectively.

Two takeaways for me...

1) the shaft offerings are vast and really nice choices.
2) the fairway has an epoxied set hosel, no adjustments. I like that.

From the window these look nice!

Blog post drops at 9 - some interesting insight from Scott White.

Great article John. I really hope these things perform as good or better as some of the big OEM’s.

Would be wonderful if another $300 did well and takes a bite out of the big time stuff.

Only thing left is the ball now. Wonder when they will hit.

WOULD IT KILL A COMPANY TO OFFER A 7 WOOD AS A COMPETITOR TO CALLAWAY?!?!?!?!?!

It's right there, 14, 16, 18...

There are Hogan branded balls all over their club photos and they don't appear to be 30 years old.  I would think something would have to be coming out this year.  We know who to ask to be sure, but he keeps secrets too well.

I like the looks of the new stuff - classy looking IMO.

I want to see a test with these and see how they perform. Hopefully one is in the pipeline for this summer.
