After consultation and testing with Tour players and many other accomplished golfers, Ben Hogan's engineering and product design team successfully developed a forged iron that is pure and traditional-looking on the outside, yet packed with technology on the inside.
All PTx PRO irons are manufactured using a multi-step forging process that allows Ben Hogan Golf to combine multiple materials into the club head. The long and mid-irons (4 through 7) are hollow and made using a forged 1025 Carbon Steel frame and forged MS300 steel face for exceptional feel.
Heavy Tungsten weights are inserted in precise locations near the toe of each iron to promote a straighter ball flight, higher initial launch angles, and more spin to hold the greens on longer approach shots.
The shorter, scoring irons (8 through PW) feature lightweight Titanium inserts allowing for optimal weight disbursement throughout the club head. This delivers lower, more penetrating ball flight to eliminate ballooning shots while enhancing distance control.
Ben Hogan President and CEO Scott White said,
"PTx PRO irons set a new standard for performance. Each iron head was designed and constructed independently using three separate pieces, different materials, and a multi-step co-forging process. It's complicated and expensive, but it’s the only way we could engineer the performance we wanted from this special set of irons. We think PTx PRO are the irons Mr. Hogan would have made himself had he had access to today's technology."Additionally, the score lines on all PTx PRO irons are milled (not stamped) into the face to provide more spin. The milled score lines also help to channel away water, dirt and turf for better contact and eliminate flyers.
The PTx PRO irons also utilize an enhanced V-SOLE technology which combines a higher bounce leading edge with a lower bounce trailing edge for optimal turf interaction and allows more accomplished golfers to more easily shape their shots.
"We took our time developing the PTx PRO irons. We wanted to make sure these irons looked as good as they perform. The head size, topline thickness, face geometry, really every angle on the club head was designed, reviewed, tested and tweaked multiple times. That process is consistent with how we run our Company. We don't rush any product to market, because we are extremely aware of Mr. Hogan's exceptionally high standards. As we continue to expand our forged irons and wedge offerings and enter new product categories such as our recent introduction of Ben Hogan Precision Milled Forged putters, we think Ben Hogan would be proud."
Seven piece PTx PRO iron sets will be offered on BenHoganGolf.com exclusively for $770.00. Six piece sets (5 iron through PW) and 5-piece sets (6 iron through PW) will be offered for $690.00 and $600.00 respectively.
