Wilson Staff C100 Irons

Wilson Staff C100 Irons
Category: Game-Improvement Irons
Price: $599, steel; $699, graphite
WE TESTED:
4-PW, GW with True Temper CL100 steel shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: A weight ring around the perimeter of the cavity enhances forgiveness. Stainless steel, thin-face irons produce fast ball speeds.

PROS
PLAYABILITY:
The Staff C100 provides basic, straight-ball performance on most swings; high-trajectory shots are typical; when necessary, testers can subtly shape shots with these clubs; guys have an easy time executing scoring shots with them.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: There’s not a lot of sidespin, so dispersion is good even on mishits; maintains distance well all over the face; some guys find them quite accurate—aim straight and you hit the target.
DISTANCE CONTROL: No big surprises to speak of -- testers can count on predictable results throughout the set; adequate distance overall.
FEEL: Heavy, substantial sensation throughout the swing; generally a soft feel at impact on solid strikes; a few guys say there’s nice “jump” off the clubface.
LOOK: One of Wilson’s betterlooking irons in a while; a dark finish gives the sticks a sleek look, and the gray color contrast in the rear looks techie; a light gray clubface with shiny black heel and toe areas frames the golf ball nicely at address.

CONS
The clubheads are a bit heavy and larger than some testers prefer; a number of guys find that there’s not enough feedback—misses can be difficult to detect; it’s not an overly long hitter.

BOTTOM LINE: A dependable, straightforward set that performs pretty much like you’d expect from a game-improvement model.
