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.

Man you guys are getting hot with some great forum testing opportunities. I really enjoyed the BH GS53 and would gladly test this out but I fear the weather is starting to turn and well i fear there is not enough time for me to get a thorough test. 

Good Luck testers and look forward to seeing this.

I am right handed!

My Choice: Driving Iron - UiHi 18* -  KBS Tour V X-Stiff

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

Handicap: 9.7

Currently my longest iron is a 4 iron (25* loft, 2* upright) and I play a 3Hy at 19.5*, standard lie. Carry distance on 4 iron is 230 and carry distance on 3Hy is about 245. I am interested in testing the driving iron as something I can hit off the tee and roll out a little more than the 3 hybrid with less spin and a bit lower ball flight. As a backup I would like to test the 3 wood and compare to my current 3 wood that I find myself not reaching for very often because I do not trust the consistency of it despite the extra 20-30 yards of distance it provides over the hybrid. My 3 wood is on the only club in my bag that is not fit to me and I am currently shopping for a replacement.
