Welcome to my Ben Hogan Equalizer Wedge Review!

I tested the heck out of these things at the range, the practice green, and on the course. I've got the low-down and I'm going to share it with you below. Strap in...it's going to be short and sweet. 

Ben Hogan Equalizer Wedges

Testing The Equalizer Wedges

On The Range: 4 Sessions and counting

On The Course: 3 Rounds and counting

Clubs Tested: 52* gap and 58* lob wedge

How I tested: The bulk of the work for the 58* lob wedge was done pitching and chipping around greens, both in practice and during rounds. I also hit full shots with it too, but only a little bit because full lob wedge shots from the fairway are difficult for me. I hit the gap wedge quite a bit on the range and around the practice green and during play around the green.

What Surprised Me: Both wedges set up beautifully behind the ball, especially when pitching and chipping around the green. I’m able to hit either wedge on any trajectory I want pretty much.

What Didn’t’ Surprise Me: These are beautiful clubs yielding beautiful and consistent performance. Hogan doesn’t know how to make a clunky or ugly club.

My Review Of The Equalizers

Looks: Beautiful and elegant wedges that frame the ball perfectly and inspire confidence.

Feel/Sound: 
Soft and buttery. A very pleasing “click” at impact. No harsh feedback or sensations to report.

Trajectory: 
You can hit these high, but you don’t have to. Ballooning has not been a problem in my testing. I was able to control air time pretty easily. The Equalizer wedges are said to be patterned from the wedges Ben Hogan designed back in his playing days. Higher lofted wedges have the weight moved higher in the clubhead to prevent ballooning and increase accuracy.

Control:
I don’t think these have the most spin of the wedges I’ve played and tested (could be operator error) but it’s very easy to adjust to them and I consider them great scoring clubs around the green.


Who are Equalizer Wedges For?

Low to Mid Handicap: You should have no problem playing the Equalizers.  You can handle forged, compact clubheads nicely.

High Handicaps: You will play better with more forgiving wedges...I know your heart wants you to get the Equalizers. I would hold off. 

Hogan Demo Program

The Equalizer wedges are available through the Ben Hogan Wedge demo program. They’ll ship you two demo clubs with lofts of their choosing. (AS LONG AS THEY HAVE THEM IN STOCK FOR DEMO) 

So, thanks for checking out my Ben Hogan Equalizer wedge review. I love them, and I think you will too.
