    I was at a shop today and the Wilson rep was there and made me hit these. I'm not consistent enough for blades but these felt AMAZING. <br />
    <br />
    Seemed decently forgiving as well. Nice long blade length. Distance was good too.

    I really want to hit these. And somehow I really don’t. I know I’ll order a set if I do. And I don’t need to. Lol.

    Wilson makes a solid iron, I’m intrigued by these blades

    These look like a real departure from Wilson Staff's usual blade. It's got a much more rounded toe than traditional Staffs and has a substantially thicker top line that many Staff irons. I know that's the "look" these days and even lots of pros aren't down with a super thin top line but I guess I just expect a certain look from Staff blades, like the FG100, which was unanimously lauded. I also don't get the trend of leaving the machining marks on clubs. I'm sure that cutout from the muscle is effective in moving the CG to dead-center, but this would have been a prototype in times past. Why'd they have to machine it out...why didn't they just do the forging in the finished shape? I think they do it just because it's a "thing" these days. Sorry, I just prefer the look of a finished club..



    The top line of the FG Tour 100s seemed thicker in person than older Wilson blades to my eye. These appear to me to be much closer to the thinner top lines of the traditional Wilson's than the FG Tour 100s. Hard to know without a side by side shot

       I hope Wilson works with him more so he doesnt need to rely on led tape for half his irons.

    Some pics to compare the new blades to the FG 100s. I honestly could not find one discernible difference in the head shape or size. The only difference I could actually see is the diamonds surrounding the face are smaller on the new ones. I prefer the look of the new model in the bag by far but I doubt anyone will find any actual difference over the ball or in how they play. Both are beautiful! Pics are 4,7,PW with FG 100s on the right.

    Carl's Golfland has a full demo set. If you liked the 100s you can pretty much order the Staffs blind and be confident you will like them. Didn't look different, didn't feel different, didn't perform differently. Literally felt like I was hitting the same exact club. Personally I like when companies don't fix what isn't broken on their players clubs. Cobra does the same and I'm a fan of both for that reason.

    I feel like Wilson sales may get a slight boost but nothing significant unless Wilson goes berserk with an all out advertising blitz.
    On the flip side, whatever increase Honma saw in sales will most likely stay flat or even dip. Azinger implied Rose’s poor GIR% was a direct result of his irons change.

    How many majors does that brand have for irons? I feel like they have more majors than all the other companies combined now that MacGregor is kaput.

    Would it not be 63 now? I thought the Fg-62 blade irons were named to commemorate 62 major wins. If the Wilson marketing team is on they'll start stamping these new blades with Fg-63. I for one would appreciate the nod to the stellar history of iron design that Wilson Staff cam boast of.

    I stand corrected although I'd still like to see them carry on with the "FG" model naming. :smile:

    Thank you for the info. I just assumed the FG 62 irons were for 62 majors as well after Harrington’s run. His 3 on top of the FG 59. I wonder why they didn’t use 61?

    I know they’re now owned by a Chinese firm but really the last original American golf brand still standing.

    I think he means those of a MacGregor/Wilson/Spalding vintage. Of those 3 only Wilson survives as a true clubmaker, Spalding and MacGregor are in-name-only storebrands. Hogan is a shell of it’s former self, etc.

    Ping is wee bit too new I think. But perhaps “Acushnet???”

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
