4.5 star review
NCG SUMMARY

In short, the Wilson Dynapower Forged irons are pretty much spot on for those looking to get better at this beautiful and annoying sport.

They look fantastic, and from the off, you can tell they have been built with forgiveness in mind. Because of this, the Dynapower Forged are almost perfect for mid-to-high-handicappers, as they help launch the ball higher while stopping it quicker on the greens and keeping the dispersion rate down.

PROS

  • Sharp and clean
  • Forgiving
  • Low dispersion rates
  • Ideal for high-handicappers

CONS

  • Slightly head heavy due to wider base

Wilson Dynapower Forged Irons Review: First Impressions

Many moons ago, my first irons as a forming teenager were a set of Wilsons that had been handed down to me from my father. I loved them, and despite being around ten years old when I first got my hands on them, they were still forgiving, and they felt as good as new.

Fast forward 15 years or so, and I was very much looking forward to seeing what Wilson would be bringing to the iron party for 2024. The Dynapower Forged irons were one of two sets of Wilson irons I tested on the day at the Worksop Indoor Golf Centre, and both sets were brilliant.

Wilson has always been underappreciated, in my opinion, when it comes to golf clubs, as they continue to try and stand up to the might of some bigger brands. The Dynapower Forged should keep that fight going, with power and forgiveness both in abundance.

NCG Verdict

As a man struggling to keep his handicap in single figures (currently sitting at 8.5 at the time of writing), I am looking for forgiveness when it comes to irons. I can hit the ball a fair way, so extra distance from a new set of irons is not the main point on my agenda for testing.

Distance is always a part of iron play, though, and Wilson has certainly thought about that in their Dynapower Forged irons. 8620 carbon steel has been used to construct each club carefully, while the variable face thickness – which changes up and down the set – has been added to ensure faster ball speeds.

This can be felt from the off when hitting the longer irons. You can tell there is a bit of extra weight at the bottom of each club, and once you get used to it, that can be used to great effect, helping launch the ball higher and further.

As you can see in the picture above, there are ‘holes’ in the base of the longer irons (from 4-7 iron). Known as Enhanced Power Hole Technology, this is a key part of adding distance to each of the longer irons, along with the aforementioned Variable Face Thickness.

I tested this tech out in the 6-iron, and below is the data. Let’s ignore the shot in the very middle, shall we! That was certainly not one of my best, with a launch angle of just 5.8 degrees…

The first four shots were hit from a tee, hence why there was some serious distance involved compared to some of the other shots. The second shot, which carried 193 and ran out past 210, was certainly an anomaly, and if that happened on the course, I would be very happy! It would have been long of the green for sure, but I was still happy I had hit a 6-iron that far.

On average, this was easily longer than the Wilson CB irons but shorter than some game improvement irons I tested on the same day. However, when it comes to dispersion, the Dynapower Forged certainly tick the right boxes. Yes, there were a couple of shots that flew way right, but that is probably more to do with my swing than anything else.

The majority of shots stayed within 25 yards of the flag, with some of those even coming to rest within 20 feet. With a 6-iron, I’ll certainly take that all day long. That dispersion rate carried on through the lower irons as well, and this is down to a high MOI construction.

Bringing the COG lower down the club face, along with distributing more of the weight towards the toe of the club face, can help to add forgiveness. That has certainly been the case for the Wilson Dynapower Forged irons for 2024, with effective descent angles to allow the ball to stop on the green with the shorter irons.

PW, 9-iron and 8-iron all carried around what I would normally hit my current clubs (TaylorMade M5s), but the dispersion rates were much smaller. To be able to step up to the ball, having the confidence that you will find the green is extremely helpful. They say that golf is 90% mental, and the Dynapower Forged irons go some way to aiding that inner confidence.

The only reason that the Wilson DynaPower Forged irons do not receive a 5 out of 5 from me is the wide sole. It just doesn’t suit my eye visually, but that is just a personal preference. There will be plenty of people out there who do like the look of it, and when you look at the data, there’s not much else you can argue against, really!

As I said in the summary, if you are a mid to high-handicapper who is looking to bring those scores down in 2024, don’t look any further. The Wilson DynaPower Forged irons are certainly the right ones for you!
