Ben Hogan launches Equalizer wedges

Published

on

The Ben Hogan Equalizer is back.

Forged from a soft, 1025 carbon steel, Equalizer wedges feature a Progressive Center of Mass Weighting System, which means more mass higher and around the edge of the club head in the lower-lofted wedges, and incrementally lowering in the higher-lofted wedges.

Equalizer wedges feature a milled face and 0.20″ U-Shaped grooves precisely cut into the face at increments of 0.40″. The CNC-milled wedge faces create a texturized surface between the grooves for increased spin.

The company carries over its V-Sole Technology from the TK wedge series, improving upon the sole geometry with a softened leading edge and addition of more bounce. The leading edge of the Equalizer wedges is straighter than the TK series, which aids alignment and tightens dispersion.

Equalizer wedges are available now in even-numbered lofts from 48-62 degrees via BenHogangolf.com exclusively. Length, lie, shafts, and grip modifications are available at no extra charge. $100 per wedge.

    This weighting theory is in direct opposition to Vokey & others of current offerings……Strange to think that hey would do a 180 degree
    difference in peripheral weighting of the wedges as it relates to lofts??????

      Hey Mike, I think this has to do with the overall centre of gravity (COG) being higher then wedges like Vokey Design. To the best of my knowledge, Mr. Vokey lowered the overall centre of gravity in the SM6 and current SM7 wedges. As a result of the weight redistribution, Mr. Vokey had to reposition the weight higher in the more lofted wedges to manage the trajectory. Even in the lower lofted wedges Mr. Vokey raised the COG incrementally.

    The original Equalizer was just a re-naming of the pitching wedge. So now they are a whole wedge line? Is this because Terry Koehler is no longer there (TK)? The soles look blocky and the aesthetics look busy. Too bad. The TK wedges were great.

Tommy Fleetwood puts prototype TaylorMade putter in play at RBC

Published

on

Earlier this week at the RBC Heritage, we spotted English golfer Tommy Fleetwood testing putters on the putting green, and we now have confirmation that said putter, a prototype TaylorMade “Bandon 1,” has gone into play.

The putter is a combination of the Truss TM1, along with a traditional plumbers neck hosel. It is also fitted with a Pure Roll insert. Tommy has a propensity for messing around with putters, so whether it stays in the bag long term or not will be something to follow.
