The new Ben Hogan PTx PRO forged irons ($770 for 7-piece set, $690 for 6-piece set) are an improved version of the original 2016 PTx line and are aimed at better players looking for a traditional forged look, feel, and playability with enhanced technology.
The traditional feel of the new PTx PRO irons comes from a multi-step forging process using the top quality materials always associated with Hogan forgings, while enhanced performance stems from a multi-material design that belies the traditional look.
For improved launch, ball speed and distance the 4-7 irons feature a hollow design with a forged carbon steel body, forged MS300 steel clubface, and strategically located tungsten weights near the toe area of the clubhead. The 8-PW feature a slightly different design with lightweight titanium face inserts for a more precise ballflight and piercing trajectory.
Other features of the PTx PRO forged irons include milled scoring lines for improved consistency, a durable chrome finish, and an enhanced V-Sole design with more bounce in the leading edge and less in the trailing edge for more forgiving turf interaction.
