Wilson say the Wilson Staff Ci7 iron is Tour-inspired and they do look like a set of blades on steroids from above. The faces are reassuringly big and the mid-sized top line of the clubhead hides the undercut cavity in the back which includes vibration dampening pads for better feel.
A Progressive Tip Design in the shaft means a softer tip with a lower kick point in the long irons for higher ball flight, progressing to a stiffer tip and higher kick point in the short irons to maximise control and accuracy. This gives the Wilson Ci7 irons a great feel and makes the mid and short irons very forgiving and a joy to hit.
The set goes from four to sand wedge and the 4 iron in particular did not feel quite as forgiving as the mid and short irons, but if that is a problem you can always replace it with a Fybrid 4h.
It was surprising to see a sand wedge in the set these days and to be honest, it is OK for pitching, but one of Wilson’s forged wedges would be better out of the sand.
Overall from 5 to pitching wedge the Wilson Staff Ci7 irons are a great set and pretty good value for money, so head along to one of Wilson’s many custom fitting centres to get the right make up of set for you.
