    I am very impressed with this design, for a lot of reasons.

    If they can get the blend right, with the sound right, that is so big. Also, that is CHEAP for hollow body.

    The size and offset might not be all that visible to most. In hand itís definitely geared towards performance.
    I missed that it was a replacement when I read it this morning. With that being the case it should be pretty easy to figure out since they'll only have the 3 models to choose from. While they still have stock of the original PTx I could see some confusion though.

    They were sneaky with their promo pics that looked like a driver face...While these look great, I'm sticking with my Blacks for now. Now, if they EVER re-produce the original Edge or later Ft. Worth Edge models, I will throw them all my money. Those were my best irons ever. I still have the Ft. Worth Edge's and still hit them occasionally... well, once a year.

    Definitely. I think as it depletes that changes, but yes with both on there it might be confusing.

    I like the clean look for these irons. Hopefully the hollow body design in the long irons doesn't result in less desirable feel and acoustics like we've seen in some other iron releases. The original Ptx had a cult following so it's exciting to see these released. I'm pulling for BH to succeed!

    Best looking (modern) Hogan iron to date. Very interested in seeing these in person. This may be one that I demo. Every bit as gorgeous and modern looking as any other big OEM has produced.

    I wonder if they will ever tweak the set makeup. Let's say start the hollow body around the 6 iron or so instead of the 7. But, I suppose as long as the set blends well and doesn't sound and feel drastically different from the 8 to the 7, then it's really a non issue.

    As a high ranking member of that cult, I had no issue with the feel or sound of the 4 - 6 irons. They are the easiest to hit of any set that I can ever recall. First time in many, many years that I did not cringe when pulling a 4 or 5 iron out of my bag.

    I get free shipping if I buy the set, but no shipping option for the demo program. Would gladly pay shipping for the demo clubs, so may contact them and see if something can be set up.

    I did the same thing, but I contacted them with both an e-mail and a call (left message). Hopefully they'll call back or reply soon. When they do I'll update.

    I'm not a fan of the old BH seal/logo, but these look good overall. Definitely better looking than the original PTx, and I'm glad they dropped the metal stamp/insert from the old set.

    Not sure I like or understand the "Pro" moniker for an iron with larger size and increased offset.
    But at the same time, it's just a name.

    One of the knocks on the originals was that they were high spin. Do you know if they addressed this with the Pros, JB?

    I love the look and the prominent Ben Hogan signature. They look like a serious players club.

    i think these look great. that's also an excellent price for an iron that looks relatively premium.

    kind of curious what tour pros had input on these, though.

    I think you are going to find some really good consistency. The hollow body change in cut off should address some of the concerns in my opinion.
