Looks like Ben Hogan has decided to enter the putter market with 4 different carbon steel precision milled heads and super stroke grips stock. What do you guys think?

    I think they are beautiful but for $250 they are completely ruining their competitive advantage of no middle man. I can get a Bettinardi for that price. Or a Stroke Lab. Which the Hogan may be just as good or better than those putters but why would they choose to compete in that market? Sub70 has their putters at $170 which is $20 less than the o works.

    Waaaaaay too expensive. I'm sure they're high quality, but those are pretty boring looking putters for $250. They look more like Wilson Staff's putters than anything else.



    It is pretty nice to see a new face balanced blade hit the market. And I like the 2 degrees of loft.

    $250 does seem a lot for entry into the market, they are good looking but I think they may price themselves out of the market, also curious about the lengths I have found a shorter putter works a lot better for me and 33.5 as shortest seems a bit long

    Ben Hogan with putters again, huh?  This time it's not with Bettinardi as the designer/maker...so it takes away some of the credibility the last attempt with putters had.  
    I grew up loving the Hogan brand and all that it stood for, but ever since Callaway bought them out...they've never quite been the same.

    Since Ben Hogan has nothing to do with the new company, i feel 99%of the appeal has gone, now they are just another club maker, with silly marketing

    I dont think that $250 is too much to ask for a milled putter. I really like the BHBO2, I have been looking for a double bend face balanced blade. I think I may end up with one.

    I couldn’t agree more with Freddie & MM!!

    Got to roll one and there’s alllotttttt more out there at that price point that I’d look at before I’d drop the $250 on one of these Putters and I’m going to be getting a set of their irons. As has been stated above me, I really think that Hogan missed the boat in offering a premium milled putter in the $150-175 range. 

    My dual milled Staff 8802, circa 2014, is retailed at $175ish, though it can be found for $125-140, and these Hogans, at least the one that tried, had nothing, absolutely nothing, on the 8802.

    Yeppers, they missed the boat~

    Badly!!

    I'm interested. But I don't think I'll be a buyer at that price. My Cleveland Huntington Beach was about $100, and I remain very happy with it. A price point under $200 would likely have me reaching for my wallet.

    They look 'off'/unrefined at address to me. They won't sell.

    I like the look of the putters but I'd like to try one for sure or at least hear some feedback from others. Can't seem to find any reviews yet. I went to their Contact Us page and asked if their putters would be part of their demo program soon. I would think this would be necessary since they aren't in stores.

    the Wilson putter!! I picked one up for $85. The guy didn't like it and it was mint....I putt like I know what I'm doing with that 8802....love it!! the Hogan putter are really nice and when you compare it to a Cameron, its a bargain and it doesn't have an insert...I don't think its overpriced, but I do think it would make a huge splash in the $200 range> @Forged4ever said:
