Ben Hogan Equalizer wedges are an attractive set of short game irons that can enhance your approach play – all without costing the earth.
Carrying the famous name of Hogan, the Equalizer wedges are cleverly being pitched as a cheaper alternative to the likes of Titleist’s Vokey wedges.
But don’t think that because these wedges are reasonably priced that they don’t perform exceptionally. Ben Hogan have worked hard on creating the perfect combination and they come in striking steel and black colour options.
The Equalizer wedges come with a host of technology and design features including precision milled face and grooves for maximum spin, u-shaped grooves, improved V sole design and a variety of lofts.
What Ben Hogan say about the Equalizer wedges:
“We’ve incorporated Ben Hogan’s wedge design philosophy across all wedges…all worthy to bear the legendary Equalizer name.
“During his playing career, Ben Hogan’s competitors called his Pitching Wedge his ‘Equalizer’ because he used it so effectively.
“While he was never the longest or even most accurate player on Tour, Ben Hogan had one of the best short games in the business.
“Ben Hogan credited his short game success to his wedge design. He knew 65 years ago that ‘unbalanced’ wedges…wedges with too much weight positioned near the sole of the club and, in turn, very thin faces…wouldn’t perform consistently. After years of experimenting with weight distribution, he found one of his many ‘secrets’.
“We’ve incorporated Ben Hogan’s wedge design philosophy across an entirely new line of Gap, Sand and Lob wedges…all worthy to bear the legendary Equalizer name. Equalizer wedges not only perform exceptionally well around the greens, but they look great too. They truly are the perfect blend of science with artistry.”
