RIP to the Gainz back
Dang the Proto 125F5 is a biggggg boy stick. He does crush balls though but that's pretty beefy for a driving iron.
That driving iron shaft is rebar! I had a Recoil Proto 110F5 in a TMag TP UDI and after a few range sessions I knew I was in over my head. I went to lighter weight and softer flex and life was much better. Those W/S Staff Model wedges look sweet. Wilson makes great equipment.
Wilson was able to get those Mizuno's out of the bag when Titleist couldn't...

I may try out the Golf Pride tour velvet Plus 4 this season. I think i have seen him and Kevin Na using them
Retail Serials on both Driver and 3 wood.
Those dudes on the SIM/KINGDOM fitting said something in that thread along the lines of pretty much everyone is using retail heads and/or there really is no different between the two.
Not a terrible looking setup for Wilson’s actually
They do work in sales, so it's not in their best interest to tell you what you're getting isn't the same as the guys on tour get. I mean we all know they're just handpicked for specs. I was more surprised because it's not very often you see a tour player with a Titleist Driver or 3 wood that doesn't have the xxxTxxxxx serial.
This is a terribly uninformed comment.

Curious that he isn't using the FG Tour V6 long irons, they are the best part of the set IMO
I have a set of the raw V6s that I’ve swapped the 4 iron for a C300 Forged 4 iron. It’s surprising that a pro would opt to play the C300F in the long irons. I personally think that they have a mildly unpleasant amount of offset, and are just a big package standing over them - heel to toe, top line, and the rear end area really is noticeable at address.
But, I hammer that thing, it is simple to hit off a variety of lies, it has a great feel for a club of it’s type, and it is as forgiving as anything. So maybe he gets over it and uses the C300 F long irons because they perform. I’m slowly getting over myself and learning to love the C400 F 4i... though I do have a D7 Forged 4 iron in a cart on some website that I keep going back and forth on, just to give a try.
I’m curious what lofts he’s playing. The V6 are traditionally lofted with a 47° PW. It looks like he doesn’t play a PW, but goes 9i (43°), 48°, 54°, 60°. I’m guessing the 54° is bent to 53°. Seems strange his bag seems more tightly bunched in the long end rather than the short end. But, these guys play a much different game than I do, so what do I know?
I was curious about the wedge spacing myself, I was thinking about kicking out the stock PW to try and get away with 1 less wedge but haven't pulled the trigger. I have the set bent 1' strong throughout the bag and really find the long irons to be as easy to hit as any club I've had. Possibly the extra perimeter weighting. Also, agree about the offset with C300. The D7 does have some appeal to it, let me know if you get it.
Gainz coming to the best iron team out there!
