    I can't decide between the MP-20 and the Wilson Staff. The Wilson are stunning, but I haven't hit them. The MP-20 both look and feel outstanding.

    keep us posted with your thoughts when you have had the Wilson Staffs in the bag for a bit. I’m looking at the Apex and W/S myself

    I can't tell you what it is about the Wilson staff's but they have become my favorite iron that I've ever played. You just don't want to stop hitting them.

    Very partial to W/S myself. My current FG59’s are the best blade I have ever played but they are looking a bit worse for wear. Would love to grab another set but good to have something new.

    I really like my MP20 blades. I added HMB to the long irons, but I hit the blades up to the 4i still extremely solid.

    Up until my MP20s were stolen last night, my vote would be for them over any other new blade. I still own a set of Apex MB and my T.I. X-Prototypes are still the best I've ever hit. Being a lefty might narrow my view based on what little we have to select from. I've had MP20 since November and did two fittings of all the manufacturers to make sure. My consistency and confidence has been at a peak with my current bag. Now the rebuild begins!

    The Wilson's look sweet....but 8620 cast? Sorry, gotta go forged. You can tell me all day there is no difference.....not buying it. MP20s get my vote.

    I'd like to agree but then we'd both be wrong. Forging is a process not a steel. Mp20's are very nice but the Wilson's have a more solid feel . Not enough difference between the two to argue about.

    From a metal standpoint, the characteristics of the materials, specifically the hardness, are very similar. 8620 is a form of carbon that is used when casting carbon steel because it flows better into the cast tool. In form forging, the first step is to cast the head, then after casting, it goes through one forged press process. That is what form forging is. 1035, 1025 etc. are more usually used to describe the carbon steel used in a billet forging. Billet forging is simply where a billet of material is hammered into it’s final shape by going through a series of heating and forging steps.

    The Wilson Staff Model blades are forged. 8620 carbon steel can be both forged and cast. The forged Vokey wedges were also made from 8620. In some applications 8620 is used in form forging, initial casting to basic shape then forging a couple of times thereafter.
