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.

        False. They took it from Adams – then they bought Adams – then they killed Adams.

        You’re other part about TM is false, too.

    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.

Best wedges for a newer golfer? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking wedges. WRXer ‘Luckydutch’ is new to the sport and is uncertain as to how to approach choosing his wedges, kicking off the thread, saying:

“I’ve just treated myself to a set of improvement irons running 5-GW. The GW is a 48 degree, so it occurs to me that I now need to think about wedges. What’s the conventional wisdom when it comes to buying wedges as a relatively new golfer? I can’t imagine there’s huge value in getting fitted since I wouldn’t have a clue what grinds etc. I like.

Do I go for just one chipping wedge to begin with then add to it over time? Or am I better off getting a set now? I suppose the advantage of buying one is it saves me some money in the short term. The disadvantage being I’m never going to learn how to use a 60 degree if I don’t get one, right?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts and suggestions 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.

  • iknowbagu: “KISS – Keep it simple, stupid. This really should apply to all of us, but it holds especially true for beginners. Find something you like the looks/feel of, and then get matching. That could be 52/58, 52/56/60, 54/60, whatever. Over time you’ll learn what you like, what you don’t, etc., and you can mix and match from there. But until you to a point where you are very specific with your wants/needs, there is no need to reinvent the wheel here. Only technical thing you really need to know is that bounce is your friend.”
  • rjdivis: “I would say something like the Cleveland CBX 2 wedges would be a good place to look, or something similar. From a setup standpoint, I would go with either a 52* / 56*or just a 54. Learning your distances with the set GW will guide you on what lofts you will need. I always like to keep things simple and, as said above, stay away from the high lofted wedges. You don’t need a 58 or 60 at this time. You can always add down the road.”
  • rsballer10: “If you are a beginner, I’d get a 56 (doesn’t have to be new) and learn to hit all the shots with that club. Depending on the loft of your PW you may want a 50/52, but I’d honestly keep the # of wedges to a minimum starting out. As you get better/more consistent you can add more wedges to the bag. Even to this day, I use my 54 degree for almost everything, and my 60 is a get out of jail club. If I was starting out I’d just get a 56 and dump the 60 altogether.”
  • Macklessdaddy: “Local Costco and grab the Kirkland set, 52 56 60 for less than 200.”

From the seller (@Ionscicles): “Miura Baby Blades being listed. Set of 3-W, fitted with Project X 7.0 shafts. Fit with custom BB&F ferrules in black, navy, gold, white. Golf Pride MCC+4 grips. set was bent 1* strong, and 1* flat. Loft and lie due to softness of metal should be checked every season to ensure they have changed due to turf interaction.

“Being that Miura makes one of the softer irons out there, this set definitely shows wear a bit quicker than others.

Despite use, clubs still have a ton of life in them. Asking $1250 OBO”
