Wilson Staff FG Tour M3 range

Equipment

The classic brand get seriously modern with their first adjustable range

5 The younger ones among you might not be overly familiar with Wilson Staff but that should all change in 2014.

For the first time the manufacturer, which can boast more Major wins with its irons (61) than any other, is introducing adjustable woods.

They will sit alongside a new family of FG Tour irons.

Staff players Padraig Harrington and Paul Lawrie have had a hand in designing the new range, which is certainly worthy of Wilson’s illustrious past.

Both the irons and woods come in a stylish matt black finish.

A new Multi Fit System enables loft and weight to be adjusted on the driver, fairway woods and hybrids.

Each wood has six adjustable hosel settings and three interchangeable sole weights which will maximise your ball speed while producing the right launch angle and spin rate (see the box opposite for how the weights work).

“As more tour players switch to lighter equipment, Wilson Staff R&D has shown that virtually all players, including low handicappers and tour staff, will increase both distance and control by using the Right Light Technology,” said global director of R&D Michael Vrska.

I particularly love the fairway wood which looks incredible, clean and stylish. Once fitted correctly, it produced some very impressive results and new-found distance.

The irons look great and perform equally well, so much so that those of us who have long dispensed with a 4 iron, might now be tempted to restore it.

A progressive cavity design, it boasts superb feel and covers the twin bases of workability and forgiveness.

Make no mistake, these irons are very easy to hit and feel sublime.

The message is clear – Wilson Staff are back.

How Multi Fit works

This innovative weighting system offers the option of using a 3, 7 or 11g weight in each wood to maximise clubhead speed. The 3-gram weight, made from aluminium, is for those golfers who would benefit from ‘SuperLight’ weighting.

The 7g weight, made of steel, is designed for the majority of golfers using Right Light technology, for the perfect balance of feel and increased distance.

The 11g weight, also steel, offers ‘Traditional’ weighting for players preferring a heavier swing weight.

A Multi Fit System pouch is included with every wood and contains a wrench, three weights and an instructional booklet. A personal fitting is recommended.
