Blog post dropped this morning (click here).
Folks have been asking for a Hogan combo set almost since the company resurrected the first time in 2015.  Now that the new hybrids and utility irons are in, a combo set is doable.
If the UiHi utility irons are any near as easy to hit as the older Ft. Worth Hi's are -- and Scott White says they're almost like cheating - this set should be a winner. 
Here's a batch of pictures for you to enjoy...

The combo set looks outstanding!!!!!

I ordered a set of Icon irons in nickel finish (4-PW).  They are in the process of being shipped today.  👍

With the lofts they are designed at this poses an interesting scenario since I am essentially dropping a 3 iron.  Do I add a fourth wedge in my bag or just go with 13 clubs?  Of course there is an option of the UiHi 18* utility iron.  Decisions, decisions, decisions ......

Hogan had always made great looking irons. Surprisingly, I have never put a set in my bag.

What's even more surprising is that I haven't 🙂

Hopefully they offer their demo program in a combo set as well. I would love to try these out but would want to hit both head styles before buying.

Like the look of the Icons and if they feel half as good as the Ft. Worth’s then they are money. Not liking how the utility irons blend into the set. The art Worth Hi irons were seamless in they way they blended into the blades. The new utility irons look a little chunky to blend with a set of blades.

I believe they design of the UiHi are ment to blend best with the PTX Pros compared to the Icons.

Would agree but some (including me) would prefer to blend them with blades like I did with the Ft. Worth irons. Played the Hi in a 4 and 5 and blades the rest of the way.

Yeah, I'd wanna hit 7-irons for both ICON and PTxPro to see which I hit better. That'd help me decide between a combo set or just going with PTxPro's. At first glance, a UiHi 4-iron, PTx 5-7, and ICON 8-P looks like the ticket!
