Wilson Staff FG Tour V2

From Golf Magazine ClubTest 2012 (April, 2012)

Category: Better-Player Irons
Price: $799, steel

WE TESTED: 3-PW with FST KBS Tour steel shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The forged carbon steel heads have extra mass directly behind the impact area to provide the feel of a muscleback design with the playability of a cavity back. Distributing weight across the cavity and to the perimeter increases the moment of inertia for more forgiveness on off-center hits.

OUR TESTERS SAY: Good-looking, traditional sticks that give you what you put into them.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: Provides a lower ball flight than most and shapes shots well; sharp leading edge cuts through turf and rough with relative ease.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Short irons create plenty of backspin and stopping power and are dead on accurate; moderate directional correction on less than perfect strikes.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Easy to dial in shorter approach shots on the number; middle irons fly predictable distances.
FEEL: Easy to tell where the clubhead
is throughout the swing; plenty of feedback tells you if you’ve struck a solid shot.
LOOK: Just what better players want to see at address—hard to argue with classic chrome and minimal offset.

CONS
If you’re looking for forgiveness, look elsewhere; long irons can be very difficult to hit; clubs don’t feel as soft as some testers would prefer.


From Golf Magazine (September, 2011)
It's for: Better Players
This forged-cavity-back iron concentrates mass behind the center of the face for precise feedback. "Discretionary weight" within the cavity is distributed toward the heel and toe to help slight mis-hits. The leading edge and heel are more rounded than in the original FG Tour irons, which helps create cleaner contact from fairway lies or rough.
