Quick Review

LOOKSGorgeous clubs. No two ways about it.
DISTANCEGood distance on center hits. I carry my 6-iron 175 yds and my 9-iron 145 yards. The PRO's were right up with them.
FORGIVENESSAmple for a player iron...Slight mishits aren't punished too severely, but they are punished.
TRAJECTORYI got the ball up quickly and maintained good distance. No ballooning
FEEL/SOUNDA wonderful "click" sound and feel when I connect with the sweet spot.
VALUEGood value. No doubt.

Digging a little deeper into my Ben Hogan PTx Pro Irons Review...

Choosing clubs in this day and age comes down Mostly to personal preference.

Some people are loyal to certain manufacturers. We may like a certain “look.” You might be looking for a balance of performance and value. 


I’ve said for a while that all the top companies produce great clubs. It’s a matter of what performs good enough and looks good enough to your eye.

The PRO’s look like players irons and perform like players irons.

My eyes have gotten used to smaller clubheads after hitting a ton of blade irons in the last few months. So, these look great to me and don’t have the intimidation factor common with blades.


Recommendation

Low Handicap: I see PTx PROs working quite well for low handicaps 

I’m an 10.3 and falling and ball striking is my strong point. I was good to go until I got to the 5-iron


Mid Handicap: Soft Pass. There are just more forgiving options out there that offer similar are better distance, trajectory, and control. 


High Handicap: Hard Pass unless you are SERIOUS about getting lessons and seriously working on your game. Prepare for much frustration for a while.

CONCLUSION

The PRO's are some of the most beautiful irons on the market today and have all the technology of the big boys. Ben Hogan Golf just puts out one quality iron after another and the PTx PROs are no exception. ​


Low handicappers with strong ball-striking skills can give these a tumble
