Brendan Steele shows off prototype Wilson Staff driving iron on Instagram

Published

on

Wilson Staff has been making waves recently with a lot of high profile activity including the signing of Gary Woodland and the new Staff blade iron prototypes he has in the bag. It appears that the R&D team at Wilson has just gotten started for 2019, considering another new prototype driving iron has popped up thanks to Brendan Steele posting some very nice pictures on his Twitter and Instagram.

We don’t have a ton of information except for the caption from Brendan’s own post

“Check out this sweet new toy! @wilsongolf was awesome enough to let me create a new prototype driving iron and it couldn’t have turned out better!” 

It has some similarities to the previous V4 Driving Iron from Wilson by the looks of both the screw and the knurling around the hosel

 

but the cosmetics and certainly more inline with the new Staff Blades pictured below along with also appearing to have a shorter heel to toe length and a higher overall toe profile:

Whether or not this new driving iron will show up at retail like the Staff blades, it is definitely something to keep an eye out for.

    Why bother posting pictures if you aren’t going to include players view, looking down. That’s the only view that matters.

    Is it just me or are companies getting away from hybrids? Can’t seem to find much on them or new ones being produced. As a older golfer I like them but hard to find a good model,most have faces so closed .
    Would like to see an article on just hybrids.

      The current Titleist and Ping G410 models have options to flatten their hybrids, along with the option to change the lofts (I think if you lower the loft it opens the face), you should be able to find one that sits square to open. If you need a 4-hybrid try a 5-hybrid and lower the loft until it suits your eye. If you need 6,7 or 8-hybrids, Callaway offer models to suit. A fitter should be able to help.

      Seriously? Every major brand has brand new hybrids on offer.

    It’s 2019.

    Very nice looking design, but-

    More than likely these will be just like Wilson’s FG Tour 100 Forged iron model…

    Same old.. same old….nothing meaningful except cosmetic changes in golf equipment due to the equipment standards of the USGA. Save your money, re-grip what you have and be on your way.

    First the FG Tour 100s now these! Who ever is designing Wilsons irons needs a raise. Wilson, Srixon and Cobra hitting home runs this year in the iron department. I personally think those 3 are putting out some of the best looking bladed irons ever.
