New Wilson Staff Model CB irons for 2021

Published

on

Can you name the golf equipment company that owns the most major championship victories?

Well, if you are reading this, I imagine if you didn’t know the answer was Wilson you can probably make the connection that, yes, it’s Wilson Staff—and for you trivia buffs, the total is now at an astonishing 62, thanks to 2019 U.S. Open winner Gary Woodland.

Wilson Staff Model CB: Adding to the Wilson iron legacy

To build on the legacy of their forged irons, including the most recent Tour V6, Wilson is introducing the all-new forged Staff Model CB irons featuring multi-material construction to increase MOI and ball striking precision.

They have been designed with input from Wilson staff tour players including Tour V6 users Padraig Harrington, Kevin Streelman, and Kevin Tway to offer the looks and feel golfers expect from a pure forged cavity back.

“The Staff Model CB Irons are aesthetically pleasing to the elite player. 
– Jon Pergande Manager of Golf Club Innovation.

The technology

Improving on the previous V6 irons, Wilson engineers have repositioned a tungsten weight to the toe of the mid and longer irons versus the middle of the sole in the V6’s for additional stability while still maintaining a lower center of gravity. This helps make the long irons with less loft easier to elevate without having to go the route of increasing the size of the cavity or reducing the thickness of the face.

Speaking of the face, it is precision milled to ensure flatness and scorelines are also CNC milled to push them to the limits.

The last part of the design puzzle was to further stabilize the head—while never losing sight of the end goal to produce a forged cavity back iron that delivers the ultimate feel—and that’s where the “Tri Brace Stabilizer” comes in. In the cavity of the forged 8620 head is a 3-way cross-section connecting the heel, toe, and topline with thicker “bars.” These bars stiffen the overall cavity while simultaneously making the club feel more solid thanks to the thicker pad. This means less mass to create a better feel, and the remaining grams shaved from the cavity can be repositioned around the head to help with additional forgiveness.

The new Tri-Brace stabilizer providing a structural connection between the topline and the central impact mass we have stabilized the topline enhancing the energy transfer to the ball while also providing improved sound and feel .” 
— Jon Pergande

Price, specs, and availability

The all-new Wilson Staff model CB irons will be available starting January 15th, 2021, and will retail for $999.99.

The irons will come stock with True Temper Dynamic Gold steel shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips, with other options available through Wilson’s custom program.

    Those look great! These were definitely not designed on their iron vs. iron tv show!

    Another great looking set of Wilson Staff irons and the predictable condescending comments about the company. As along time player who has counted many Wilson clubs in his bag, I really wish which ever conglomerate owns Wilson this week would spend some actual money on advertising and brand building.

    These look great. My only criticism is I don’t like the font and location of the sole #s.

      Ping has used this placement of tungsten in the toe in the long to mid irons since the i10 or i15. I’ve found this design to be highly effective at stabilizing the club face on off center hits, which the marketing material cites in this article.

    The V6’s are some of the best feeling irons I’ve ever hit. Can’t wait to give these a try.
    I’ll be looking for new irons this Spring.

    So they just took TaylorMade’s SpeedBridge and put it in a smaller iron. Meh, nothing new here.

      Where is the speed bridge… And those TM are not forged. Just some gimmick irons for weekenders

      Is the speedbridge in the Taylormade irons forged too?
      Usually they are cast so the feel isn’t as good and generally more offset if it’s on the Game Improvement irons.
      The minimal offset on the Wilson’s would be more appealing to myself.

      Hey Bobby, Wilson had a bridge in the forged FG Tour F5 irons that i still game. It’s nothing new, but it ain’t Taylor Made.

      Taylormade took the idea of the speed pocket from Wilson, just saying. Also, Taylormade pays players to use their bags with no Taylormade clubs in them. Wilson doesn’t.

    Sweet!

    What’s even better about these is that the offset and lofts match up with the Staff blades from what I can tell. Combo set options!?!

    Well, looks like my V6’s will get an upgrade in January… gorgeous.

      No top line photo. I love the novelty of wilson staff. Would take any day over the cliche names.

        Cliche names like Killer Whale, Fat Shaft, Invex? Yeah, silly stuff.

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!”
