Do you play Hogan Apex irons? - Page 2

Re: Do you play Hogan Apex irons?

Have a set and love 'em. When you catch it clean, hear that click it's as if a ball doesn't exist. Sometimes feel like you're hitting a wiffle ball. My 7 iron turns on me every now and then, but it's probably because I have the OEM grips on 'em.

Don't know what I'm going to do when this set wears out.

Re: Do you play Hogan Apex irons?

Not knowing whether I'd get my conforming Callaway irons in time for Open qualifying, I busted out my Channelbacks and Apex Grinds. The Grinds screamed through the wind like nothing else. But, I liked the looks of the Channelbacks better. I ended up getting my clubs in time so back those two sets went back with their friends. I have about 25 other sets of Hogan clubs. Here's a group picture of just a few...

Yeah, I've filtered out my "bad" sets and have only sets with original grips and matching serial numbers now. I should take an updated photo of my "Hogan Corner." My oldest is a set of MacGregor Hogans pre-1950.

Here's a link outlining the history of the Apex model: http://www.equip2golf.com/archives/h....html~archives.

I just bought a set of '88 Redlines on eBay. Can't wait.

benhogan.com used to be a really great website with an iron timeline from the company's inception. Callaway totally killed the site though, now it just directs to callawaypreowned. Lame!

Re: Do you play Hogan Apex irons?

Last year when I started taking golf seriously I inherited some Titleist DCI 990's from my brother in law and found they were a muscleback and hard for a beginner to hit so I did some research on here and Hogan Apex's were highly regarded, so I cruised ebay and found a guy selling a set of 2-PW only half an hour away so I bought them for 65 bucks. Sure as shit my wife had already bought me a new set of Nike Slingshots the day before but was saving them for the wedding gift which was in a week at the time. When she found out I bought the Hogans she was pissed. So now I have a set of Apexs sitting in the garage that I've only hit a couple times, might have to pull them out and start using the 2 and 3 irons as my slingshots only go to 4. I'm not sure of the year but they are forged.

Re: Do you play Hogan Apex irons?

Does anyone know the standard lie angle for hogan irons? I have apex plus irons and I tend to hit them near the toe almost everytime.

Re: Do you play Hogan Apex irons?

I bought a set of 1988 Redlines on eBay a few weeks ago. I got them back from the pro shop this morning after they had been fitted for me. Wow. Triple wow. Their balance is superb, and the sweet spot is sweet beyond belief. I think I'm going to like these clubs.

I know it's redundant, but many people say those were apex of the Apex line.

I've just pulled the Apex 4 shafts from my set of 2002 AEP's (Apex Edge Pro irons), and re-shafted them with some stiff KBS Tours, this combination is pretty sweet, before I completely re-shafted them all with KBS, I did some testing with the help of my local pro, we started with some S and X Dynamic Gold's, some Nippon Steel Pro's, and the KBS Tours, the KBS won me over, and now I'm back to playing my old AEP's again for the 2011 season :-)

 

let's hope it knocks a few strokes off my scores as well this season !

I have some Apex Edge Pros w/ apex 4 shafts that get some play a few times a year.

Great irons, penetrating flight and a bit of forgiveness.
