OMG, as the kids say. The shape of the master in the 3rd link looks eerily familiar; have an unhit / will never hit Apex 3-wood just like it. Thanks Todd!

Very neat slice of history. I don't  know when Hogan started regularly making persimmon. probably in the classic club frenzy of the 80's? Is that head shape the same as the hogan metal woods from 20 or so years ago?. I think they were Model 1953 or something.(I am not a Hogan expert; so I probably should stay out of this string. But it's fun seeing this stuff, regardless of brand)

The Ben Hogan Company produced persimmon woods from their inception, actually pre-dating their irons due to the quality control issues of the initial batch of irons. The metal wood model you are thinking of is the Series 56, an exact replica (in steel) of the 1956 model Hogan persimmons.

True Temper was turning many of the companies persimmon heads up until about 1984. PowerBilt being an exception
I think. When True Temper scaled back on that type of business (eventually not doing it anymore) - Louisville Golf
stepped in. Louisville turned many Hogan heads from the mid 1980s to the end of the "persimmon era"
