    I have had the PTx in the bag for ten months now and I have no plans to switch any time soon. The 7i in my set is a solid body design and is a club I love to hit. I believe they went to a hollow body design for the 7-4i in the PTx Pro and I am not sure if I like that decision. My 6-3i are the hollow body design and I do not like the feel as much as the solid clubs. My 6i performs well for me and I have no trouble hitting it but the solid irons are a joy to hit flush.

    We will have some fun video coverage coming up next week on these or shortly thereafter (filming next week). Speaking with the company a lot over the last few months about these, this is a set they have worked a ton on and refined through testing. I think it is going to be extremely well received.

    Love the look of these forged Hogan irons. If they are good enough for the Hogan name, they are good enough for me to play. I'm sure a ton of R&D went into developing these.

    I have to admit, wasnít as big a fan of the previous designs aesthetically but these look REALLY good.

    Are they aimed at the better player as the ďProĒ nomenclature suggests? Or would you say itís open to a wider audience?

    I think with the hollow body design of the longer irons they could work for a wide variety of players. They arenít large or oversized, so itís something to keep in mind, but all feedback I have so far is that they launch well and are decently forgiving.

    Those are some really good looking irons. And that price point is perfect. I really gotta try some Hogan irons at some point.
