Two,

What goes around comes around. These are pics from a set of 2006 Apex I just procured. I believe it was the last production year of Hogan products. Almost looks as if it was tribute to an all-time classic.

Those 73 Apex are my babies.. man, are they a good looking blade. It's so funny that it says they're a 'larger' blade :? Not quite in modern terms. They have little or no offset as can be seen in the photo, which is great- they do go high-ish for a blade, but I like that as it allows me to have the intent of hitting it low which I like with irons. They also have zero/minus bounce which really encourages and requires the shallow approach...
Robbo, I think I read recently you talking about offset on new irons you got- I take it this is them? That's a lot alright....
I have a classic RR question about the shaping of the groves and dulling on the faces- I wonder what his intent was to have them widening at the bottom... any thoughts, RR? I keep meaning to ask you... I've thought about it a lot, and I assume it's no accident as he was probably still fully involved in the designs at that point. Interesting.

Bom,

Unfortunately this the my 2nd set of "current" Hogan designs. The other was from 2003 and they have even more offset than these. It's as if the more recent BH designs (post 2000) got caught up in many of the same trends as so many other iron designs.

I took the 7-iron from that 2006 set for a quick hit at the range......... yikes! To say it flew a bit higher than my PC 7-iron would be a gross understatement. I see I have some tweaking to do. :(

I wonder to these choicest leather, steel plated, double soled, tank shoes come in soft spikes?

Now you're hitting below the belt Bom :lol: ....I'd give my eye teeth for a pair of those.....and at this point I wouldn't care if they were pink women's shoes....I would just dye them rat black.

Maybe I should keep those comments to myself now that I see the Captain back in town. :lol: RR
