    Looks nice. Wonder what the medailon in the back is for. Looks like they still have the V-Sole

    Just saw the addition of the price, very very smart coming in at least $30 lower than almost anyone else.

    They kept the V-Sole. They talk of progressive CG, so my gut says that and aesthetics.

    Nice looking clubs - is it me or do the soles on those clubs look "Small"? I realize they maybe beveled but even then.....

    Good looking wedges. Always thought it was cool how Hogan irons sets included an E wedge instead of the standard P wedge.

    Definitely?

    No, I am not kidding. My gut says at the time of release, they had not decided yet.
    If I was a betting man, I would say KBS and UST, but I dont know who got paid and who didnt.

    This isn't surprising to me. I remember Hogan having their own shaft labels on their clubs back in the day. Maybe to keep focus on their heads?

    Nice looking wedges and what appears to be a shrewd price strategy. I'm forever a fan of anything with Mr Hogan's signature and it's always good to see the brand is still trying. I don't think I'm consistent enough to game these wedges but I appreciate the post.

    My gut says they dont do enough production to have a private label done by one of the factories. The previous company (Ben Hogan) had some issue with payment to some brands, for components. The new company has been formed and we are told that will no longer be the case. 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).
