Forum Thread of the Day: GolfWRX Members love this golf bag

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Steelhead, who gave us a close look at his new Jones Trouper golf bag, and just like Steelhead, many of our members have been seriously impressed. The thread features plenty of in-hand photos of the new bags, and though many of our members have already dived in and ordered one for themselves, with Black Friday fast approaching, lots have been waiting for this week to get their hands on one.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say on the new golf bags at the link below.

  • Blink3665: “I’ve been lurking on this thread since it started.  With the Black Friday sale, I had to jump.  I grabbed a Navy bag with a few extra goodies (If I’m gonna pay for shipping I might as well grab a few other things, right?)”
  • slide13: “I’d say if you want to carry 14 clubs and don’t want a pretty tight fit, give the Trouper a try. I have the Utility, and it’s a cool bag, but I found it a super tight fit and not great with 14 clubs using midsize grips.  Maybe regular grips help.  I still like the bag, and I don’t mind using just 12 clubs or so which helps a little, but I’d still probably have found another solution if it was my main bag.”
  • Dubv23: “As soon as I pulled the trouper out of the box today I knew it was going to be my favorite bag.  It maintains a lot of the Utility styling but adds a lot of the features many wanted. The great thing is it does not make the bag that much bigger.  Its taller from the bottom of the opening to the top but not much wider and very well thought out. The material is different than past utilities, and I would assume it was to shed weight.  It has a hoofer like feel to the fabric but not so much to make it seem like it’s not a Jones bag. The opening is perfect and holds all 14 clubs perfect, the leg mechanism is smooth and much easier to release than the past, and the putter “well” is slick. “
  • mr.hicksta: “After seeing those additional pics, I’m even more excited about getting mine! Jones Golf doesn’t mess around with shipping, either. Mine looks like it’ll arrive on Monday, which is nice and quick from Oregon to Hawaii!”

Wilson introduces super game improvement Staff D7 irons

Published

on

Wilson Golf has announced that 2019 will see the release of their new super game improvement Wilson Staff D7 distance irons.

The new Wilson Staff D7 distance irons will keep the aesthetics from the FG Tour V6 and C300 irons while integrating Wilson’s RE-AKT technology, which is designed to provide golfers with extra power.

Speaking with regards to the new irons, manager of Wilson Golf Innovation Jon Pergande, described precisely what the new clubs are set to offer golfers.

“The D7 line is our latest installment of game improvement irons that will give golfers increased distances on longer irons and precision with the shorter clubs. Our RE-AKT technology and ultra-thin responsive club-face increases ball speeds to help produce maximum distances, while the shorter clubs give golfers a greater feel and more distance control.”

Just how has Wilson Golf gone about constructing these new irons to achieve these goals?

Well, the Wilson Staff D7 long irons (4-7 iron) feature three rows of power holes, and will also contain Wilson’s thinnest club face ever, designed to provide golfers with both maximum distance and greater responsiveness off the club face.

The D7 short irons, on the other hand,  feature fewer power holes and optimized weighting with the aim of providing maximum feel and greater distance control.

The irons are equipped with Recoil Series Graphite Shafts, which will be available in A, R and S flexes at 65 grams. KBS Tour 80 Steel shafts are also available in R and S flexes.

The D7 irons will be available to purchase from retailers and Wilson.com on January 17, while the pre-sale begins on January 10. The retail price for the D7 Steel irons is $599, while the graphite irons will cost $699.
