Ben Hogan VKTR
18°, 22°, 26°
Our take: Hogan’s VKTR hybrids have been on the market for nearly a half-decade now, and while the manufacturer has made major strides to increase forgiveness and playability they’ve managed to do so while remaining true to their initial goal: versatility. The newest VKTR (a new design reimagined for 2021) was an absolute favorite in the hybrids category during ClubTest, particularly for its design. “Doesn’t feel like a hybrid, just a bigger iron,” said one tester. “Nice thin look. Surprisingly amazing!” In a lot of ways, the VKTR hybrid is a perfect metaphor for Hogan himself: quietly brilliant.

The details: The VKTR hybrid is built from two pieces of steel with minimal offset and a slightly larger clubhead size for added forgiveness. A bulge clubface with variable face thickness works in concert with the above to improve the launch characteristics of each shot. The face is forged for a purer feel while the high toe position gives the appearance of a club that’s more iron than wood. The crown aesthetics are simple and muted, a favorite among testers, and fixed weight in the rear helps to lower the CG and improve the club’s overall playability.
