Definitely shipping from Texas. Package was received this afternoon and my projected delivery date dropped to Friday! Assuming it comes at the normal FedEx time I'll hopefully already be on the course (barring that pesky work thing getting in the way), but at least I'll have a pleasant surprise when I get home!

I wouldn't say I'm awful at hitting them, but it's not my favorite club in the bag. I've experimented, and my current gamer is old enough to buy us a beer, but I just can't find something I'm confident in. Love my Hogan clubs so I'm hoping for the same as you.

Oh what did FedEx Santa leave me under the tree?IMG_2001.JPG

Wow! First impressions on this club are out of this world. I’ll do a full write up on first impressions tomorrow or Monday, but unbiased opinion this might be the best looking hybrid at address I’ve ever stood over.

Super excited to see the FedEx man yesterday.....

I have to say I was very impressed with the looks of this club when I took it out of the box. It looks better in person than on the Hogan website which I think gives the impression that it has some awkward proportions.  The quality seems very high with a strong attention to detail, certainly as good or better than some of the much more expensive clubs from the Big 3.  The paintfill and all of the polished portions look perfect. Also a nice touch to leave the headweight sticker on the club. Mine checks in at 240.5g.  I'll have more to write up once I get a chance to get out to the range.....

Very excited when this showed up last night! Was in the middle of converting my 46 gallon fish tank to a 55 so had to wait and clean up before I opened the box. No one wants fish hands on this baby! Lol

I will be writing a more in depth first review later today. My first impression though is these look great, pictures don’t do it justice. I will hopefully be getting a round in on Friday. I will need to walk off some of the extra food from thanksgiving!

Had a chance to take some practice swings in the family room today. First thing to note, this club is super light. I don't believe it will take much to launch the ball.

Came home from work today, and the club was outside! First club I've ever had that was wrapped in the plastic. 

First impressions, very classic and polished club in an era of super modern equipment. Classic headcover, good weight and classic Hogan ferrule to set it all off. 20201122_173208.jpg.2f6e18e74b4d6840b5d0541b551fda18.jpg

I'll just be looking things over for a while while that mirror finish lasts.

Hello everyone my name is Greg and I’m delighted to have been chosen for this test of the Utility 18* iron. I live in northwest South Carolina and am a resident member of a semi private club in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains. So I am fortunate to get to play golf mostly year round. I still work for a software company so don’t get to play or practice as much as I like. Here’s a view from our 8th tee, par 3 200 yards from the Blues.




I currently play Hogan PTxPro 4-P plus the Equalizer 50*. I also have the Eq 56 and 60 but have been using TM HiToe wedges with greater success. I also have a VKTR 18* hybrid which I love after having changed the shaft to a Recoil 780 F4. I get a nice high ball flight with that setup and very accurate. Little to no hooks which I might tend to do w a hybrid.

I am looking forward to comparing the utility iron to the VKTR. I’m a little concerned that the KBS Tour 110 Stiff might be too firm for me.

I’m currently a 12.3 index and 63 years old. I’ve lost some distance compared to my younger years of course but still hit my PTxPro 7 iron between 150-60, average 240-250 off the tee. Typically play Srixon ZStar but sometimes Bridgestone B RX or QStar Tour.

Here’s some looks at the new Hogan Utility Iron I’ll be testing (18* 3-U):










So again, really looking forward to trying this out compared to the VKTR. And very grateful to Hogan and MGS for the opportunity to participate!

Hit some balls into my outdoor net yesterday first impressions, the club is a little heavier then my gamer which I knew since the BH is 85 and my TM is 75, the face on the BH seems to wider then the TM. Contact felt good has a nice sound to it but I kept hearing a weird type of whistle sound when I was swing it, did anyone else testing the 3W or Hybrid hear that ? All and all I will be going to the range Tuesday night and will be gaming it Wednesday or the weekend for the first time.

The NOT Ugly - My scorecard. And the UiHi. It looks great in the bag. I'll have to get it out on the range this week and get more comfortable and see what a flushed shot looks like. 

 

 

Congrats on the personal best. You'll have a lot more opportunities to get good shots in with the utility I'm sure.

Ben Hogan UiHi 18* Utility Iron

I meant to get this out yesterday but my honey to do list was longer than I thought it was. Anywho, I haven't swung the UiHi at a ball just yet but wanted to share a few of my first impressions.

First and foremost thank you MGS and Ben Hogan for this opportunity to do this!  

So this club is sexy or at least I think so. I could have club goggles on, who knows lol. I love the lines, very straight forward and not over the top. Looking down from the top I get the, I can hit this club feel, which I know plays a factor for me in my ability to hit a club or not. The club feels a little too light for my liking so after I play on Friday I am going to ping my buddy to see if he has time on Saturday for me to swing up to his house and get it on his swing weight. I already need to adjust my current Irons back to a D2ish. No matter what the swing weight is on the UiHi I will play in for a bit to see my yards and control to have a baseboard before I switch it.

I typically use midsize grips, did any of the other testers feel like the standard was bigger than a normal standard? Or am I losing my mind LOL. So this might be another switch I do just to get me normal with the rest of my clubs. 

The only thing so far that I don't like is it seems to be very upright. if I want the club to be anywhere close to flush with the ground I have to Bryson my arms up and straight a good amount. Who knows I have seen a few videos online that say with my swing maybe I should have it up to straighten me out a bit. 

I will update y'all after my round on Friday!!

Curious to see what you come up with here, as I have some initial thoughts about modifications but want to hold off until a range session or two. 

I feel like the grip seems bigger because of the shaft length. The shaft gets thicker the further you move from the clubhead, and this is likely the longest steel shafted club in the bag. With less shaft cut from the butt end, the grip goes on a thicker part of the shaft.
