    Paid the 20 bucks today to try out two Hogan 7i
    The Icon and Ptxpro

    should be fun. More fun in fact than the bar I used to frequent and blow 20 bucks rapidly!
    Bar is closed now... dang it.
    Like a Hogan club, the bar was kinda personal.

    Our son was 132 pounds and 6'=3" when he enlisted in the Army. Had never played a sport and was as athletic as a three-legged porcupine. Started running in basic and found he could just keep running... and running... and running. Over the years, he has tried to run a full marathon most years. He did a trail run in the Nashville area, a while back. Said the first mile was almost straight uphill. Some of the contestants didn't even make that. He was crossing a creek and slipped on a slick rock... or something. Felt his knee pop. Thought he was done. Tried to run and tripped over a hidden tree branch in the water. Knee popped back in and he finished the race near the top of his age group.
    He took four guys from his unit up to somewhere in Indiana for a military competition. They had to be if full battle dress... boots, flak jackets, and all. Each had to have an 85 pound pack on their back. IIRC, the competition was running... or trying to run... something like 8 miles in a couple hours. Whatever the time was, he and three of his guys all made it.
    The past few years, he's really beefed up. Tries to keep his weight right a 195 to 200. Everything he's added from that 132 is solid muscle. Dozens of jumps when he was with the 82nd Airborne and the 5th Special Operations Group. At not quite 40 years old, he wonders why his knees are shot!!!!

    The Hogan demo 7i arrived today. Ptx pro and Icon blade.
    Can’t wait to try them out.
    The Ptx pro looks better in real life than the pictures imho.
    I just had too add the icon blade to see..
    Funny about blades... my wedges, like a lot of folks have are blade type. Yet we hit them well enough. I certainly don’t expect any miracles lol. My current hogan apex edge pros are very good condition, better than I can play them.
    But at this time, money wise, I migh want to take advantage of getting a brand new set.
    Both have kbs 90 R flex. Here’s a toast to good results!

    Pulled the trigger on the Hogan combo set, with 4i Hybrid
    And even better, got an immediate 10% off code
    Unfortunately they didn’t have the two wedges I would like to get... just got a matched set lol.
    Messaged them about getting on a waiting list.
    This is my first ever brand new set

    My friend bought a new Taylormade Sim2 or whatever so I was hitting his M2. Striping it, way more consistent and longer than my Callaway.

    So yeah, I bought a used M2 yesterday. :D

    I used it on the course. Also, if he wants to drop $530 on a driver and sell his $200 driver to me for $60.... I'm game.

    The M2 tends to show up on the net as a good forgiving driver.
    But of course it goes against the grain of getting the most newest thing out there .
    I’m tempted to ho one, and a fairway in the family as well .
    I could be mistaken but I think Academy sells these.

    I have an M2 and have had it for 3 years. One of the longest and most consistent drivers I’ve used. It’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

    The $108 cobra SZ 5 wood is working out well !
    Got a fair number of good looking hits off the grass today.
    Maybe it’s time to retire my super old cobra speed LD draw offset 3 wood if I find another deal like this one.
