Equipment: FG Tour V6 irons launched by Wilson Staff
If you’re after some stylish forged irons offering feel and feedback then the Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 irons could be right up your street.
Wilson Staff irons are responsible for 61 major wins – including those by the late, great Arnold Palmer – and with the FG Tour V6 irons the brand say it’s not just the best players in the world who can benefit from them.
There’s progressive centre of gravity and weight positioning within the set to ensure the long, mid and short FG Tour V6 irons perform exactly how they are supposed to.
Made from 8620 carbon steel, the new FG Tour V6 irons feature split tungsten weighting through the set offering improved sole camber and bounce for added distance, versatility and optimal ball flight.
Weighting in the long irons (3, 4 and 5) is split across 12 grams in the toe and eight grams in the heel to increase the Moment of Inertia (MOI) and launch angle without increasing spin.
On the mid-irons (6, 7 and 8), weighting is placed in the centre to lower the centre of gravity (CG) and provide optimal forgiveness across the scoring clubs.
The impact area (38 grams) is concentrated low in the head and directly behind the center of the face to maintain a muscle back like feel, but with a cavity design to provide feedback and forgiveness on off centre hits.
The FG Tour V6 irons have already been put into play by Wilson Advisory Staff members, including two-time PGA Tour winner Kevin Streelman and European Tour star Marcel Siem.
“When the Tour players first hit the V6 irons they wanted them in the bag straight away,” said Michael Vrska, Wilson Golf’s Global Director of Innovation. “Thanks to their feedback and the innovative design, we’re now able see Tour irons for the better player in the hands of regular golfers and not just professionals,” he added.
