ClubTest 2018: Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 irons review
SPECS: 4-GW with True Temper Dynamic Gold AMT steel shafts.
RECOMMENDATION: Targets low- and possibly some mid-handicap players looking for improved launch conditions, soft forged feel, and lots of maneuverability.
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: Long irons feature 20g of tungsten in the heel and toe for added stability on mis-hits, while the short irons feature the same amount of weight low in the sole for improved launch. The 8-iron to wedge have to additional weighting for added control; forged carbon steel construction for improved feel.
If the Tour is the ultimate proving ground for a forged iron, then the V6 passes with flying colors. Embraced by Wilson’s Tour Staff, this model from ’17 still excited players who want a traditional, soft forged feel with variable CG locations for enhanced performance throughout the set. Goes to show that even the old-school one-piece forged iron has developed technologically to provide superior performance.
“A hit with better players who prefer a soft forged feel with some extra forgiveness. Variable CG locations help provide optimum launch angles from long irons to wedges.”
