Player’s Black Combo Set is Most-Requested product in recent history;joins popular Player’s Combo Sets combining ICON Blades and Award-Winning PTx PRO Irons with various long-iron alternatives.
Fort Worth, Texas – January 21, 2021 – On the heels of introducing a number of long iron alternatives, including the UiHi utility irons and VKTR+ hybrids which led to The Player’s Combo Set – one of the best-selling products in their recent history – the Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company today unveiled a Limited Edition Player’s Black Combo Set.
The Company will introduce a limited run of the Player’s Black Combo set comprised of the PTx PRO Black irons (#4 iron through #7 iron) combined with ICON Black irons (#8 iron – Pitching Wedge). As an extra bonus, buyers will have the opportunity to purchase an 18-degree VKTR+ hybrid … traditionally a club that would replace a #3 iron … for a special price.
Unlike most ‘combo sets’ on the market which make design sacrifices from the start — where the long irons do not have enough game-enhancement technology while the shorter, scoring irons have too much — the Ben Hogan Player’s Combo Sets uses the best elements of two distinctly different iron models. The Player’s Black Combo Set combines ICON blade short irons and the Award-Winning PTx PRO mid- and longer irons.
“Quite candidly, we were blown away by demand for the Player’s Combo Set. We knew it was a great concept, but never expected it to become a cornerstone of our product line. Throughout the latter half of 2021, we just couldn’t keep up with demand,” said Scott White, President and CEO of Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. “On top of that, we’ve had ongoing requests for the set to made available in black finishes. The Player’s Black Combo Set is the response to those golfer demands.”
Adds White, “Black golf clubs have been popular for a number of years now and we don’t see that trend changing anytime soon. Our proprietary Diamond Black Metal finish has proven to be preferred by many discerning golfers. We offer it as an alternative on many of our irons and wedges because it is more durable than nickel chrome and doesn’t flake or crack like black paint which most other manufacturers use.”
The new Player’s Black Combo set will begin with the PTx PRO Black #4 at 22 degrees. In keeping with the Ben Hogan manifest, the set(s) will maintain consistent 4-degree loft gapping throughout the set; #5 iron – 26 degrees, #6 iron – 30 degrees, #7 iron – 34 degrees, #8 iron – 38 degrees, #9 iron – 42 degrees, and the Pitching Wedge – 46 degrees. Pricing for the Player’s Black Combo set will be as follows:
4/ 5/6/ 7 (PTx PRO irons) with 8/9/PW (ICON irons): $840.00
Additionally, an 18-degree VKTR+ hybrid will be offered to buyers of this Limited Edition set at the special price of $100.00.
