Wilson’s new FG Tour V6 irons

Published

on

Wilson is one of the oldest brands in golf equipment, but has enjoyed a fairly recent surge of interest in its products in recent years. One of the reasons is company’s FG Tour irons, which have gained a following with PGA Tour players and golfers who don’t play for a living.

The FG Tour V6 irons are Wilson’s latest release, a direct replacement for the company’s FG Tour V4 irons – its most popular iron model on the PGA Tour. While quite similar in appearance and performance, Wilson engineers made two key changes to the new irons.

To improve performance, the FG Tour V6 irons use 2 grams more tungsten in the 4-7 irons, and the tungsten is positioned in different places depending on the iron number.

The long irons (4-5) have two tungsten weights (12 grams on toe, 8 grams on the heel), which makes them higher-launching and more forgiving – a change Wilson’s PGA Tour players specifically requested, according to Michael Vrska, Wilson’s Global Director of Golf Innovation. The mid irons (6-7) have the weight positioned in the middle of the sole like the FG Tour V4 irons, enhancing feel and workability.

At address, the FG Tour F6 irons retain the same general profile as their predecessors, but were given a slightly thinner top rail that has a slimming affect. Only discerning golfers will notice the change, but of course, that’s FG Tour V6’s target audience.

“These are a better-play iron,” Vrska said. “That doesn’t mean a 10-handicapper wouldn’t love them, but a 16- or 18-handicapper probably wouldn’t.”

The FG Tour V6’s are available 4-GW, and come stock with True Temper’s Dynamic Gold AMT shafts. They’ll sell for $999 when they arrive in stores on January 9, 2017.

    Tried the 7 iron yesterday on GC2. Was disappointed with the dispersion. Look gorgeous but I’ll be sticking with my V2’s. Don’t see the benefit of these ( use a hybrid instead of the 4 iron).

    I don’t understand why they don’t have the loft specs on their website. Am I missing it?

    Seriously these irons look fantastic. Much better than the 716 AP2

    So will we be seeing a test anytime soon? I’d like to see some spin numbers and what kind of flight you get with them. The shafts sound interesting. I have Nippon Modus 3 105s right now. Love my V2s but the more rounded sole sounds like I might like them and the tungsten is very interesting. Great looking clubs too.

    Wow. These look awesome. Nothing wrong with Wilson. Have played their stuff for years, their face angles are perfect. Still love the look of their wedges. I’ll definitely consider these next.

    $1000 for Wilson/Staff irons…hard pass. They look great and I like what W/S is doing but that price point is ridiculous.

      I agree. Give it 6 months, they will be all over eBay for half price

      but you’ll pay that for companies that literally use the same materials, assembly processes’ , and even chinese manufacturers as Wilson Staff and think they are “premium” lol

        You are so right!! Slap a titleist badge on it and people think its “better”.. people who stick with the big names in golf miss out on a lot of great equipment that smaller names are putting out for example mizunos, srixon, bridgestone, Wilson, Ben Hogan etc..

          1K for a set of irons with $7 shafts, am I missing something?

            Sep 26, 2016 at 11:13 pm

            $7.00 shafts? You certainly are missing something.

            Dynamic Golf AMG is also stock in Titleist AP2. You’re missing the fact that DG is likely the most popular and tour-trusted brand in steel shafts. You want fancy expensive shafts that no one plays?

      All player’s irons will be in this price range, or more towards $1,200. The new Mizuno JPX forged and tour irons are $1,200. So $1,000 is actually a good deal for these.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best 3-woods for a high handicapper

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been looking at 3-woods for high handicap players. WRXer ‘Metro07’ is very much a Cobra guy but is open to other suggestions, saying:

“I am 53 and not a long hitter so I obviously don’t have a fast or even moderate swing speed. I got back into golf 5 or 6 months ago after being out for many years and was never really that good back then, I still haven’t broken 100 on a real course. I’m hitting my 4 iron about 175 carry.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

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

  • Nichex524: “I’d focus on either a 4 or 5 wood honestly… and as far as forgiving goes, most Ping models will probably be helpful enough as far back as the G20 even. Make things as easy as possible, especially if you’re not looking for distance.”
  • ThwFlyingWasp: “I know you’re a Cobra guy, but I swear the Ping G410 SFT is the easiest fairway wood I’ve ever hit off the deck… it’s not the longest out there (by far), but it’s point & shoot easy & great off the tee as well if you tee it down… plus lofts are a little higher than normal to help the ball in the air… 16* 3 wood & 19* 5 wood… it’s like cheating… it’s so good… seriously lol… try them.”
  • Striker Ace: “I highly recommend the Callaway Big Bertha B21 5 wood, IMO it is so easy to hit straight, especially with the amount of offset that this thing has. I use it as my driver also, but it is also easy to hit from the deck. Give it a try!”
