With a low profile, a wide sole and a lower center of gravity, this game-improvement club produces higher ball flight. The irons also have a Wilson-patented wide-tip shaft that reduces twisting on off-center hits.
From Golf Magazine (Buyer's Guide, May 2009)
It's for: Mid- and high-handicappers
Drew Tryner, Industrial Designer/ Global Golf: "The genesis for Di9 came before I graduated the Industrial Design program at Arizona State. I spent so many hours at school designing, conceptualizing and building new product models, but nothing compares to the sense of accomplishment I got from watching my first product go into mass production and, ultimately, into the global marketplace."
How it works: Wilson's highest-MOI iron has plenty of head stability due to a clever cavity design (the sweet spot extends toward the toe) and the firm's lightest (99 gram), wide-tip shaft. The Di9 has a low-profile design and wide sole (lower center of gravity), so shots get up on a high flight. The thin, hot clubface is engineered to create extra ball speed. Loft increments of 3.5 degrees between clubs (including two Gap wedges) should improve distance gapping in scoring irons.
