The Staff FG Tour series are Wilson's irons aimed at better players with a design focus on distance and precision.
Once a category where the feel of a blade reigned supreme, the better players' market is increasingly populated by clubs that still have the familiar size and look, but with plenty of technology stuffed under the hood to boost performance.
The previous FG Tour V4 Iron achieved this with the addition of a tungsten weight in the sole of the 3 to 7 irons to increase launch angle without increasing spin.
This theme is developed in the latest model, the Staff FG Tour V6, whose shot-shaping and feedback have made them an instant hit with Wilson players Kevin Streelman and Marcel Siem.
The heads are made from 8620 Carbon Steel and the tungsten weighting in the longer 3, 4 and 5 irons has now been split across two weights with 12 grams in the toe of the club and 8 grams in the heel. This increases the Moment of Inertia making the clubs more forgiving across the face as well as increasing launch angle without increasing spin.
The FG Tour V6 mid-irons boast a similar set up to the V4 with the weighting centred in the sole to lower the centre of gravity to provide optimal forgiveness for the scoring clubs.
This centres 38 grams of weight in the impact of the area low in the club head directly behind the centre of the head giving the iron a muscle back feel whilst reaping the feedback and forgiveness of the cavity back design on off centre hits.
