Thanks for the great write-up on these new metal woods. Loving what I see and read and definitely all in on the brand. Hope the 10.5 driver does not take too long to come in.

Thanks for the info on an exciting new Hogan product. I am looking forward to some testing to see how it stacks up to the competition.

I am surprised and pleased by the adjustable hosel and premium shafts! They want to compete in that $300 range with the TEE EXS driver and the W/S D7!

I am happy they kept the "speed slot"! Not surprised to see 53 in the name...most Hogan woods had it.

Wow those prices are as much a throwback as the looks of the clubs are here. Can't wait to hear how they perform.

Ben Hogan looks to be coming back with a bang and a fantastic price point to boot. Very classic looking, surprised to see 445cc instead of 460cc. I think many will like these if the performance is there. Oh and well done on the hosel adapter.

Love the look of these! Brings back some memories of my old Hogans. They had a variation of the speed slot. Of course it wasn't called that then

Really solid looking offerings, can’t wait to hear what the event participants think about them! I do really like that BH engineered the adjustability in a way that it doesn’t effect the shaft and grip orientation. That’s a big plus for me!

These look amazing. The price is right and the shaft options are amazing. Only question now is performance.

I was kind of surprised about the 445 as well but am actually happy about it.

I know it's a small thing, but I love the old school font and placement of the number on the bottom of those woods, classic!

I for sure will. Need to be able to give some feedback of my own as well as some from what I’m seeing the boys do. Hopefully someone plays an X flex
