I don't know old buddy you ain't been around me any. Of course since I got hurt I have not been around the yard since April no telling how many classic clubs have been to the shredder since then.

So, as many of you saw over in the “What Have You Bought Lately” thread, I went to a thrift store and found an older set of blades. I was originally going to just get a single iron to play with from t

These are not super old clubs, coming out in 2002/2003, but they are sharp! I got a better look at them today and they're the Hogan Shafts in a 3 (regular) flex. Haven't had the chance to hit them properly, but did hit a couple of small chips in the back yard and they feel nice. They are the Pro model. 20200908_175542-01.jpeg.3bcded382796733f483edf667866aa0f.jpeg
The 5-E clubs have Release by Feel Golf grips and they feel like they have a reverse taper to them, the grip feels bigger the closer you get to the shaft. The 3&4 have normal grips. 

It’s kind of awesome how much the DNA of the look is still there with the new PTx PROs too.

Not mine I actually really like the irons I game although I do need to get some KZG clubs built and put into a bag, but 2 sets is less than Rob has in his office at work lol

Trust me when you get those KZG irons built you will love them. Smooth as a Mother's love. Depending on what you are used to hitting the 6 and 7 irons are a little long in the face but you will get used to them

Those look amazing! The woods and irons both look to be in great shape and those head covers are, for lack of a better term, cool.

Someone on the forum needs to take these babies home.

Took the Hogan's out for their maiden run on the driving range today and I've got to say, I'm impressed. 20200913_131225-01.jpeg.cbe3abb8af1f200b2d8d74b2c49c151d.jpeg

They're some of the most repeatable clubs I've ever hit, I was hitting a pretty consistent fade with them and the distances on my good hits were consistent. I knew if I hit one 125 with a 10 yard fade, the next one was going to do the same thing. 

The sound was more muted than I'm used to, but that's not a bad thing. Just a nice, relatively subtle click and the ball was in the air. The grips were a bit weird as they taper from bottom to top and are quite a bit bigger around my bottom hand than I'm used to. I bought some beautiful, white Lambkin's from @chisag that are going to look amazing on them, if I can keep them clean. 

My work schedule is brutal the next two weeks, 9-10 hours a day for six days a week. Not much in the way of time off, but I hope I can get a round in with them soon.

Thank you! I tend to ride more than walk, especially in the summer and it checks all the boxes for me. I really hello in love with it when I saw it came in a camo pattern with the red accents. I need to find a stand bag to store some of the too many sets of clubs I'm getting.

I couldn't turn those grips down, they were such a great price. I told my wife about possibly buying them and she asked why I hadn't already. You weren't kidding when you said the clubs felt great, they are a joy to hit.

They look awesome in that bag. Fit right in with the new Vokeys and the Epic Flash.

I have a set of Hogan Edge CFT heads from around that same time frame sitting in the basement. Not blades at all. My goal this winter is to get them built up and get them to someone as a starter set.

The CFT's look like they have a lot of weight down low and would be perfect for someone as a beginner set to help them get airborne. That's a nice thing to do, Cody. I hope you can find someone who will get years of enjoyment out of them.
