The Ben Hogan Company started in 1953. It was well known throughout the company that there was nobody that expected perfection more than Mr. Hogan; to say he was iconic is an understatement. Toda

Learning a new edit system during Covid so I cut together a little something.....

Awesome news...what’s your expectation going into this comparison?  
 

We’ve had rain every day for ten days so I’m hoping to squeeze 9 into our executive course down the street. They measured out at a heavy D2 which I like, I’m hoping to get a shot at them before that fluffy white stuff falls 😊

I actually am trying to NOT have an expectation going in. I just want to swing away and see what it does. Buuuut, I’m guessing it’s going to be a very similar hit off the grass, and maybe the UiHi will go a little further off the tee.

man that NY weather sucks!

I think that’s a fair plan. The UiHi has a really nice launch so I wouldn’t expect to see a big difference in flight...distance, yes. 
 

I really do love living here though...The long winter definitely makes me that much more excited to golf though.

Got the PtxPro today, but haven’t hit it yet. It’s smaller and maybe 1/4” shorter than the UiHi. It’s definately a different look, or I should say the UiHi is different. You can see where the UiHi would be easier to hit. The grip is different too from the Z5’s, but still a lamkin...

here’s some pics, and you can see the differences yourself...

The length was one thing that surprised me within the set. I didn’t imagine the 4UiHi would have been a full 1” longer than the 5 iron. 
 

Nice to see the evolution towards Lamkin’s newer grip models. 
 

Clearly this 4 brought you some good juju today, keep it going!

I'm probably around 70 rounds in now, and would like to make a comment on the Lamkin Z-5 grips. They appear virtually new still. In addition to the ~70 rounds, you could also include endless buckets of balls. I think I've probably got around 3000 strikes with these irons, and still no appreciable wear.

My new MavriK driver has a Dri-tec grip, and Ive already worn a hole in the right thumb spot. Thats in less than a month!

So anyways, it's more of a statement about Hogans decision to use the Z5 grips, rather than another statement about their irons. But I have found that these grips are very, very good. So, just another good decision by the Hogan company..

And lastly, no, I still haven't gotten my 4 PtxPro... dad-gummit!

 

I second what Sluggo said. I questioned the grips as well. They do still look new.

ok, hit the PtxPro 4 iron today. These comments are going to be from a very small sampling, so until I get a few more rounds in, chew these with a grain of salt.

The UiHi is a little easier to hit with a bigger sweet spot.

the PtxPro 4 iron is longer than the UiHi, in fact its long like crazy long.

Trajectory is very similar

The Ptx feels more solid

It cuts thru the rough pretty well. Was able to get a 201y onto the back of the green

Ill need much more data to really dial it in for distances, but they were definitely longer than the 5 iron which is one thing I need to really get a feel for, for real gapping. I had a few off the tee @220y ish, which is  crazy, so Ill need to match those shots, and hit the 5 from the same spot as well. The more I hit it, the more it indicated much more testing will be needed.

A thin hit in the early cool AM stung the fingers...

I'm surprised that your PTxPro 4-iron is longer than the UiHi. Even off the tee? I rarely hit my 4-iron from the fairway these days.

Thanks again for stepping up to review both irons. Will you be getting some Trackman data, too?

How long have you been playing the Equalizer wedges, @joen?

I trust you're happy with their feel, trajectory, and distance control?

JB,

I ordered the wedges when I was selected to test the Ben Hogan combo set. I had played Mizuno wedges for years. Love these wedges!  Great price point!  The V sole is money off any lie you can think of. These have become weapons in my hands this year. I hit beautiful low trajectory mini draws with the wedges that hit and stop. Great out of the sand. Below is a picture of a 78 yard wedge holed for eagle last month.

Thanks again for stepping up to review both irons. Will you be getting some Trackman data, too?

no trackman, I don't have a source, so Im forced to use the trackman inside my head. Its not very reliable tho...

the trouble with trying to review just one club, or should I say two, especially the 4 iron, is that without a trackman, I can only hit them when the opportunity arises, and if Im not getting pressure behind me.

My exact scientific procedure is to take 2 or 4 balls and mark 2 of them. Then from a variety of places, Ill hit both clubs, and  use my tracking section of my "Golfshot Plus" to see how far they went, and which club "won" that event. The one glaring problem with this process is me. I don't always hit the ball perfectly, much less trice or 4 times in a row. 

But, when I do, I do see that the trajectory is very similar. And distances will vary depending on strike, and landing spot. The landing spot can really affect rollout obviously.

being that the head is much smaller, it only makes sense that it can cut thru the rough easier that a larger head, so I think it wins that category just based on physics. But with that, the larger head and larger sweet spot makes the UiHi an easier, more forgiving tool. So it wins that category ...

I will continue to hit them both as the days roll on, and eventually will have a reasonable answer to the question.

Did you put the same Recoil shafts in both 4-irons?

Well I hit the snot outta these two 4 irons today, and you know what happened? A whole lotta the same thing. It seems that very well struck hits from either iron, seemed to look like carbon copies of each other. Im wanting to see one of them dominate, but they just don't. I did have a good ball striking day today, and Ill tell ya, the PtxPro 4 iron is sweet. I think as Ive been saying, that the UiHi is easier to hit, due to its size. But the PtxPro 4iron was sizzling today. I didn't even carry a 4 iron for the last few years, but guess what? Now I do.

Im getting close to keeping the Ptx 4 in the bag, simply because I like the smaller club. The UiHi hits it every way as good I'm finding out, but the Ptx cuts thru the rough a little easier, and feels a little more crisp . They both seem to go about 190-200 ish off the grass, and a bit further off the tee. I've been hitting off the turf mostly, so tomorrow I"m gunna try to get a bunch of tee shots in...

I think at this juncture I would say that if you're a good iron striker, you might prefer the PtxPro, and if long irons are not in your wheelhouse, the UiHi would probably suit you better...

yea, I think today seals the deal for me, and I crown the PtxPro 4 iron the winner in my showdown. I have nothing negative to say about the 4UiHi either. I just prefer the feel of the PtxPro, and its a little tighter out of the rough. I think its a little longer, but that doesn't really mean much to me, but I just am throwing that out there. Off the tee, the UiHi seemed to soar a bit higher, and the Ptx seemed to pierce more. You can work the Ptx a little easier too, but, its not like you can't turn the UiHi.

What sealed the deal today was a shot on the #1 hcp hole where the pin was in the back of the green, uphill, 184 yds. Early in the round and chilly. I just tried to put a good swing on it, and it went pin high about 20 feet left of the pin, but the green slopes that way so it really couldn't have gone anywhere else. I just missed the birdie putt for those interested. But having a putt was key.
