There hasn’t been a new club released under the Ben Hogan name in almost two years. That will change in April, when Ben Hogan launches a new version of the Edge irons, as well as new Equalizer wedges.
The Edge revisits the most popular club line in Ben Hogan’s history, repeating a name that was found on the first Edge irons thirty years ago. As with previous versions of the Edge, the clubs are meant as game-improvement irons that sport a design to appeal better players. The new design makes sure to echo the appearance of previous Hogan irons, while updating the technology to compete with modern clubs. This includes constructing the head with two separate forged parts, in order to incorporate perimeter weighting technology. Take a look at some of the other updates below: Continue reading Ben Hogan Launches New Irons, Wedges

Ping’s latest game-improvement iron finds similarities with recent Ping hybrid models. Unlike any of its predecessors, the Ping G700 features the first hollow-body for a set of irons in the history of the company. The successful design of the Ping Crossover hybrid acts as a direct influence for the G700 irons. The hollow-body is meant to push distance and forgiveness to the max. The thin face combines with body design to make the club perform more like a metalwood. Ping has always been known for their game-improvement irons. Now, the G700 model aims to take the next step in creating a forgiving design.

TaylorMade has added a new twist to golf club technology. Today, the company revealed a first look at their M3 and M4 woods and irons. The biggest talking point? New Twist Face technology, which features driver faces with a twist in the low heel and high toe.
TaylorMade offers the Twist Face concept to combat the tendency for overcorrection and fairway misses when players make high toe or low heel hits. After conducting research on thousands of shots, TaylorMade found that the traditional bulge style face wasn’t meeting expectations. Adjustments to the faces on the M3 and M4 line are meant to correct this. You can read more about the Twist Face technology here.
Another step-forward for the M3 driver is found in the weight and track system. The M3 features a potential 13,000 setups between the adjustable weights and the adjustable hosel, which doubles the number possible in the 2017 M1. Similar improvements are made to the adjustability of the M3 fairway woods and hybrid.
Along with the new woods, TaylorMade announced the M3 and M4 irons. Adjustments to the irons include new technology called RIBCOR, a new support system inside the head that is meant to provide faster ballspeed across the entire face.
