Wilson Staff FG Tour M3

Wilson Staff’s newest line of equipment, the FG Tour M3, for the first time offers adjustable features in a Wilson Staff driver, fairway wood and hybrid.

The company’s previous line of equipment, the D100 series, was tailored to golfers seeking distance. But the FG Tour M3 is aimed at better players who are often more concerned with looks and feel.

“Wilson Staff is dedicated to helping golfers play their best and having custom fit, personalized equipment is the best way to make that happen,” said Michael Vrska, global director of R&D for Wilson Staff. “We believe strongly in adjustability, especially for what we identify as a feel player, so that trajectory can be optimized and ball speed can be maximized.”

FG Tour M3 Driver

The FG Tour M3 driver comes set at 9.5 degrees, but its adjustable hosel can adjust loft from 8.5 to 11.5 degrees in 0.5-degree increments. The deep-faced 460-cubic-centimeter head also has an adjustable sole weight to help golfers tune the swingweight of the club.

Like the FG Tour M3 fairway woods and hybrids, the driver has what Wilson calls an “Iced Matte Painted Crown” and a black PVD finish. The driver head is manufactured with a variable thickness face that maximizes CT, as well as a tour-preferred pear shape that makes the head look compact at address.

Price: $349.99
Stock shafts: Aldila RIP Phenom 50, Aldila RIP Phenom NL 60

FG Tour M3 Fairway Woods

Like the FG Tour M3 driver, Wilson Staff’s new fairway woods have a removable sole weight, as well as an adjustable hosel with a 2-degree range of adjustability. The heads are available in three stock lofts, 13.5, 15 and 17.5 degrees, which adjust in 0.5 degree increments to give golfers the ability to play a Wilson Staff fairway woods that measures anywhere from 12.5 to 19 degrees.

Unlike the F3 Tour M3 driver, the crown has no alignment markings, offering the clean, glare-free look prefered by purists.

Price: $219.99
Stock shaft: Aldila RIP Phenom 65

FG Tour M3 Hybrids

The FG Tour M3 hybrids complement the Wilson Staff FG Tour M3 irons, offering a clean, compact look and three stock lofts (17, 21 and 23 degrees) to help golfers fill the gap between their shortest wood and longest iron. Like the rest of the wood lineup, they have a removable sole weight and an adjustable hosel, which offers the same 2-degree range of adjustability (in 0.5-degree increments) as the FG Tour M3 fairway woods.

Price: $199.99
Stock shaft: Aldila RIP Phenom 85

A multi-system pouch will be included with every driver, fairway wood or hybrid purchase. Each pouch will contain an adjustability wrench, as well as 3-gram and 11-gram adjustable sole weights (the heads come with the 7-gram weight already installed).

FG Tour M3 Forged Irons

Wilson’s FG Tour M3 irons are forged from 8620 steel and have a matte black PVD finish. Their progressive cavity design moves weight lower and away from the center of the face in the long irons, which helps increase forgiveness and provides a higher launch. The short irons have a center of gravity that is higher in the head and closer to the middle of the face to provide a more penetrating flight and workability.

The irons have thin toplines throughout the set, giving them the compact look that better golfers expect from a Wilson Staff iron.

Price: $799 with steel, $899 with graphite
Stock shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold XP (Steel), Aldila RIP Phenom 95 (Graphite)

The Wilson Staff FG Tour M3 lineup will be available at retail in January 2014.

    I ordered the entire set, the phenom shafts are great, and the irons were hot. I hit them all at the PGA show and loved them. I hit every new iron there and I liked these the best. I am a 8 handicap and plan on reaching 5 by summer with these.

      Bought a Shockwave driver sept 2012, but the clubhead cracked so I payed 75 euro extra and got a D-100 (sept2013) instead, this one crack also. Now Wilson UK says warrantee has expired because the initial deal was 2 years ago.. bad form! Spend some more on quality. Wilson feels great but cheap will cost you in the end.

    Tested the driver at a demo day last week. Wow, super distance for sure, and the ball flight was easy to adjust. The wilson rep spent some time with me in fitting the driver. I had a cobra adjustable driver and it did not light a candle to this one. now waiting for my pre order Wilson to arrive at end of December. For a single digit handicaper it simple had great feel and seemed to have consistent performance for me.

    As an under 30 golfer that has never considered gaming a single Wilson club, I want this entire set. I currently play a variety of used stuff ping, TM, Adams, Mizuno, Nike, so I obviously have no brand loyalty. These are amazing, and make Wilson look like a legit company, not a kmart golf club.

    First the guy that designed these was A Wilson Staff designer ,went to Adams put them in the limelight went back home to Wilson Staff.Now Mike is going to bring Staff back to the top where they were and will be again. It takes time to build back to the top.They have won 62 majors, more than any of the rest. So go to one of the others and you will miss being part of a legend coming back to life. I have the Fg V2 irons and they are the best Iron I’ve ever had. Waiting on the Woods with great excitement.

      Verska was with Adams for a few years under Tim Reed, who led the direction for wood and hybrid design. Makes sense why these have Adams flavor.

    Wilson is back! These are some of the best looking clubs I’ve seen in a while.

    Me Like! Can anyone comment on the durability of the black PVD finish on the irons?

    • Jack

      Usually wears out pretty quick. There have been sets that lasted a season though. So it depends on the quality of the finish as well. I think I’m a full go for the rest of the woods, but the irons I may not get for that reason alone and also that I am still in love with my AP2s.

      I think they will look better with wear… something tough, familiar and experienced about irons with a worn black finish fading into gray steel.

    Anyone have any inside info on release date or pre-orders?

    I like Wilson and think their line looks fantastic but I rather spend the money on a bigger name OEM than Wilson. Not that Wilson is not a major oem but they are a shell of what they used to be. I guess I’m just being a snob, but again would rather have Adams or MIZUNO or Cobra in my bag.

      Nah that’s totally personal preference. It’s your cash, spend in on stuff you like!

      Adams would be smaller than Wilson if it were not for TM/Adidas money.They still may be when you consider how many balls Wilson sells.Irons do look like CB2′S which means they look better than anything Adams does now.
      Do not let other companies marketing budgets sway you.Wilson should spent money to promote this line like they do in tennis, which they dominate. Try em all and decide.

        Take away Wilson’s ball market and Adams easily outsells them in clubs. Not even close. Btw–I heard from a rep that Taylormade has no input in adams designs or marketing strategy. Adams has the wheel.

        • kasey

          December 17, 2013 at 10:55 pm

          This is untrue, Adams could not afford to forge their clubs so the TMade guys came over and designed all the new forged line up.

    Holy cow these are good looking! I like my adams clubs, but seriously this is making me want to change! Wow wowow. Could get an entire wilson set all blacked out.

    I have a guy in the golf shop I work at who is on staff with Wilson. I heard the rep talking about the players line that was coming out but I’m pleasantly surprised with the way the woods and hybrids look. The black finish on the irons looks amazing!

    Those hybrids look a bit like my a12pro’s and that’s not a bad thing. Love the look on all of these.

    • Drew

      September 25, 2013 at 9:29 pm

      Looks a lot like the Pro a12 is 4right. I seem to recall that I heard elsewhere that one of Adam’s designers moved over to Wilson when they were bought out? I know I am extremely excited for these hybrids — adjustability and the small head. Goodness I can’t wait for these. I can assure you I’ll be bagging the 17*

    September 25, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    Not sure what to say…Let me start with Wow!!!!!! I am sure therewill be nay sayers on the forums but really guys, not much to not like here. I am happy for an iconic brand like Wilson to get back into the spotlight.

  18. Drew

    September 25, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    Ah, BIGTIME Wilson Staff fan here and had no idea this was coming. The 2014 line looks absolutely killer. Finally they will have the looks to back up the performance. I really hope people give these clubs a try.
