RH golfer

1st Choice = VKTR+ 18* hybrid, stiff flex shaft

2nd Choice = 14* 3-wood, MRC Tensei Blue 70-S (stiff) shaft

13.4 USGA Handicap Index

I do not play long irons (5-iron, and sometimes 6-iron is the longest iron in my bag).  Instead, I play a 5-wood and one or two hybrids.

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.


This may very well be the largest forum test ever conducted on the internet.  Can you say MEGA TESTING?

We’re going to give 15 of you a chance to test one of these in the category you choose, no that’s not a misprint.  Fifteen forum members will get a chance to test a GS3 Fairway wood, UHI driving iron or a VKTR+ hybrid.  



Hybrids – VKTR+

18* - Recoil ES 75 F3 Regular 

18* - Recoil ES 85 F4 Stiff 

18* - Recoil ES 95 F5 X-Stiff 


Driving Iron - UiHi

18* -  KBS Tour 90 Regular 

18* -  KBS Tour V Stiff 

18* -  KBS Tour V-X-Stiff


Fairway Wood – GS53

3 wood – 14* - MRC Tensei CK Blue 70 gram Regular 

3 wood – 14* - MRC Tensei CK Blue 70 gram Stiff 

3 wood – 14* - MRC Tensei CK Blue 70 gram X-Stiff
