The only question is if shaft company A never got paid from before, how willing are they to drop some product to the company on net terms? I have no information on this other than what happened when THP broke the news about the original company going under, so its just a guess on why they would not have that info out there.

    I was told custom options will be available so I am sure people will have a shaft of their choice as an option (upgrade or not).
    Sound logic. It all makes sense.

    Going through the order form the options are the same as the tk15 wedges. KBS Tour V, Tour 90, or Recoil. If there's a way to get a custom shaft I haven't figured it out yet.

    I'm probably going to order some today. My TK15s have been absolutely perfect for my game. I'm a little concerned with the changes to V-Sole but that's the sort of thing that no amount of internet research can help with....gotta get them in some grass!

    They were designed by a different team, so that would explain the changes to the look and functionality. From what I have learned, TK has had no input into the current designs.

    Those aren't bad at all. I think their loft numbers look so much better on the wedges than the irons.

    I wouldn't mind trying an F4 in these. For $100 no upcharge, would be worth the test.

    Thanks for the info AG.

    Sounds like a straighter leading edge and a slightly different bounce setup are the main differences. I'm super intrigued but if they are completely new designs perhaps I need to temper my expectations.

    The shafts look damn nice to me. The VSole doesn't look nearly as pronounced. The wedges look longer heel to toe than other Hogan offerings. $100 per clubs is very good pricing as compared to,competitors.

    If they upgraded the tech, and it works as advertised, the price point is excellent. nice lookin wedges, but I don't think they'll knock the rtx-3 out of my bag this year.

    I noticed the heel to toe as well....compared to the old SCOR offerings I'm glad to see that.

    Gorgeous indeed, what we've come to expect from Ben Hogan as far as looks are concerned. Nice price point as well. The name....not sure why but the Equalizer is funny to me.

    Those are good looking wedges for sure. I hope they do well, I donít see them knocking my current gamers out of my bag, but thatís a completely different style of wedges.
