Did Jeff McCoy change his name? Koehler is not mentioned in that article.

One bad mis-hit with those on a cold day, and your finger tips will be numb for a few hours.

I would love to have a set of those ferrules in red, white, and blue.

If that had been an option my Edel SLS01's, I'd have gotten them.

Edel has some very nice blades with custom bounce angles but not SL.

I agree, great looking and there is no way I am man enough either!

Speaking of people being upset with the new Hogan's lofts instead of iron #'s. Terry K. mentioned on Myspy.com that he had nothing to do with the Equalizer products and that he has something new in the works.

I can only imagine that it's a progression of his ideal loft launch conditions. No idea if that will work but that's my #1 guess as far as technology. Secondarily how he elects to pursue distribution of his new product to me will be the most fascinating aspect.


Here is 14's new wedge and I'd be lying if I said it didn't look a lot like the Reid Lockhart wedges to me.

Hopefully, this isn't seen as thread highjack, but it does appear forged blades are making a comeback. I played Hogan Apex for over a decade and really liked them. Although my handicap never was lower than 8 I preferred how they felt and performed. I'm a senior now and my swing speed is such that I probably couldn't even get my old irons airborne.
Having said that I'm toying with the idea of getting a 20* Hogan Ft. Worth Hi iron. I struggle with fairway woods and hybrids and actually have more confidence in my Mizuno JBX 850 four iron. All I hear is that high handicappers and seniors shouldn't carry anything lower than a five or six iron. That logic just does not work for me.
Have any of you out there with slower swing speeds had similar experiences?

" ...forged blades ..."

Of course everyone realizes that blades, whether forged or cast, offer the same playability. Or the same challenges, depending on your glass half full perspective. The size and weight distribution, MOI, COG, and all those parameters determine how easy or difficult an iron head will be to hit properly, the ball doesn't care whether it is being hit by a cast or by a forged head.

What? You don't think fourteen was inspired by a Reid Lockhart wedge?

I don't think they're similar at all. I think they are the same! Nice find.

I have a few of the original handed down to me...used to be a big PGA fan as a kid. Have a set of 197? Ryder cups that used to be the bomb for me. Now I know too much on club design and cannot play much before a certain time frame based on sole designs.

But thats where the original Tommy Armour 845 falls into place for me

Isn't that so interesting? Players cavity backs from then are probably comparable to later blades. No wonder so many good players loved em. Entirely agree.
