What works best for your long game?  Do you prefer to go for the gusto with fairway woods, or perhaps seek the control of a driving iron, maybe the forgiveness provided by hybrids?  Well the Ben Hogan Golf Company has options available in all three categories.

Do you currently play a Long Iron or Hybrid-I am dying to play a long iron.  Have been looking and testing a variety but have not settled on one yet.  I currently have a Nike Vapor 3 hybrid, but really want to try a driving iron.  I actually looked at the Hogan website at their long irons and did a little research.
