Ben Hogan Icon
Our take: If you’ve seen Ben Hogan irons before, you won’t be surprised by the Icon’s look; if you’ve ever played Hogan irons, you’ll recognize that their design hasn’t changed much either over the years. “It’s classic Hogan through and through,” one tester said. “Old-school look with a validating feel at impact. Could play these all day.” These clean-cut muscle-backs are designed to bridge the gap between gorgeous design and top-tier performance — a better player’s iron for sure.

The details: If you were to search the dictionary for the definition of “forged blade,” you just might find a photo of the Icon. Progressive weighting keeps the CG low in long irons (for control) and high in the scoring irons (for maximum precision). With minimal offset, a compact head and thin topline, the Icon has all the trappings you’d expect from a traditional blade. The Icon comes in two finishes — chrome-nickel and black metal — for a simple look (as in simply brilliant).
