    Hogan did well with this follow up. The technology sounds pretty legit and I'm glad they are able to keep these at a good price point. It would be interesting to hit these side by side with the original to compare the feel and performance because the original PTX are pretty great.

    Beautiful irons

    After playing with SGI irons these are the types of offerings that I have been looking at. Something with a sleeker look, almost players type irons, but with technology to help higher HC golfers.

    I hope to be able to do just that. Hard for me to fathom that the new irons are better but certainly would love to find out.

    From the website

    PTx PRO Irons offer a slightly larger face profile and sole width compared to the original PTx Irons. Plus, our engineers and designers added slightly more offset.

    That seems a little backward to be compared to what we usually see from Pro models. I can't tell if these are supposed to be easier or harder to hit than the original.

    I agree. From the looks and the word "Pro" added to the model name, I assumed they would be more demanding. Based on the description though, I am assuming they are not.

    Very tempted by these. Had the PTxs and like the iron, but hated the loft stamping on the club. I think Hogan does sole design better than anyone.

    Thats too bad. Would have liked to see them maintain the same size and offset as the PTx.

    I think if viewed as regular and pro that might be the case. If you check out our home page article, you will see this is more of a replacement than compliment.

    The size and offset might not be all that visible to most. In hand its definitely geared towards performance.
