Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company has unveiled its new PTx PRO irons, an enhanced version of Company’s best-selling original PTx line that was introduced in 2016.
The PTx PRO irons were developed for mid to low handicap golfers who demand performance.
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.
The new PTx PRO irons offer the feel and feedback only forged irons can provide, while utilising some of the today’s most advanced materials and manufacturing processes.
These irons blend the traditional, elegant styling that Ben Hogan irons are famous for, combined with modern game-enhancing technology.
The long and mid-irons (#4 - #7) are hollow and made using a forged 1025 Carbon Steel frame and forged MS300 steel face for that forged 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 – PW) feature lightweight Titanium inserts allowing for optimal weight distribution throughout the clubhead.
This delivers lower, more penetrating ball flight to eliminate ‘ballooning’ shots while enhancing distance control.
“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,” said Scott White, President and CEO, Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company.
He added: “It’s complicated and expensive, but it’s the only way we could engineer the performance we wanted from this special set of irons.”
Additionally, the score lines on all PTx PRO irons are milled into the face to provide more spin. Plus, an enhanced V-SOLE technology offers optimal turf interaction and allows more you to more easily shape their shots.
These forged players irons are available directly from benhogangolf.com as part of the brand’s factory-direct consumer business model.
