Ben Hogan introduces their new wedges with a dual bounce sole and lofts that range from 48-63, all with a classic forged construction.

Pros: Classic style, innovative design, excellent performance

Cons: None

Modern’ wedges bear a puzzling similarity to those dating all the way back to the 1950s, the ones Ben Hogan said should not be hit over 40 yards. (This from a man who was known to hit his driver 300+.) What Mr. Hogan knew was that the heavy bottom and thin upper face caused very inconsistent distances with full swings.  That insight inspired the company completely re-engineer the design of wedges to make them much better at full shots than any other wedge you can play. And they built in even more innovations to make sure they were more versatile around the greens than the wedges currently in your bag. The new Hogan TK 15 wedges will show you that you are a much better wedge player...

Solid performer, but not enought to make me switch

Pros: Durable, good feel, responsive

Cons: None

I, too, was sent a box of Bridgestone e6 golf balls for the purpose of writing a review.   I normally play TaylorMade balls, Pentas and more recently the Lethal line.  For me, I wanted something good but I didn't want to go the ProV1 route.  I always buy my supply from the used ball market to make the balls a good deal.   The Bridgestone line feels good when unboxed, and the logo and e6 graphics make the ball easy to identify.   I played these over 4 rounds, some cold weather and some normal 80 degree weather as well.  Overall the ball was good, just not great for me.  I felt there was a difference in driving distance and I really notices more...

A solid performer

Pros: Very durable, soft, nice sound

Cons: Pricey

I have been able to play 3 rounds with these balls. My usual ball is the Penta TP5. I would say there is little noticable difference between this ball and the Penta. I feel this ball has less spin around the greens. These have the classic dimple within a dimple look which may not be for everyone, but otherwise this feels like a premium ball when you hold it. From the limited time I have used these I do feel my driver distance has increased some due to roll but I have also not held the green as much as with the Penta TP5. I would convert to these, price being equal.
