Wilson Staff FG Tour Irons
From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, March 2010)
Category: Better-Player Irons
We tested: 3-PW with True Temper Dynamic Gold steel shaft
Company line: "We combine a thin topline and square toe with a center of gravity that's directly behind the hitting area. The result is greater clubhead stability and enhanced feedback."
OUR TESTERS SAY:
PROS: Fairly forgiving sticks; these get the ball airborne easily and on a higher trajectory than most; solid strikes are rewarded with a crisp sensation through the ball; short irons provide consistent performance in the scoring zone; traditional looking head with attractive chrome finish is a plus.
CONS: Fails to excel in any category, which hurts its overall value; clubs tend to dig more than others; some testers experience too much vibration on mis-hits.

From Sports Illustrated Golf+ Equipment Issue (February 8, 2010)
This forged iron has a square toe and a thin top line. A shallow cavity redistributes weight to the toe, placing the center of gravity in the middle of the face for more solid feel.
From Golf Magazine (December 2009)
This forged cavity-back design has the traditional visual cues (thin topline, square toe, minimal progressive offset) that better players look for. Distributing extra weight toward the toe positions the club's center of gravity (CG) directly behind the hitting area. The net effect is greater head stability and precise feedback. CNC-milled grooves and a higher CG (for higher spin rates) round out the package.
