When I found out that I won the contest that MGS and Wilson threw for the PGA Championship, I was pumped! I quickly realized that I hadn't hit a Wilson club in years, so, I was very curious to go try out their offerings at the PGA Superstore. I was a little skeptical, mostly because I hadn't heard much about their irons. After scoping out a few of their offerings, I narrowed it down to the Forged C300s and the FG Tour V6s. Both were great offerings, and I was seriously considering the Forged C300s but I ultimately went with the F6 Tour V6s because they were closer to the clubs I was currently playing (Callaway Apex Pros w/ Project X PXi shafts).
I was instantly impressed with how the FGs felt. They provided instant feedback on the shots you hit and performed great. They have a smaller profile then some of the other clubs you might come across, but, that is to be expected of an iron in this class. I tried out a few of the stock shaft offerings and found the KBS Tours and the Dynamic Golf AMTs to be the best fit. I ended up going with the Dynamic Golds because they had a slightly higher ball speed, were more consistent, and had a better feel than the KBS Tours.
I've played a few rounds with the FGs now and I'm really impressed. They are consistent and allow you to flight the ball up, down, left, and right. The AMT shafts are kind of interesting because they are weighted heavier at the bottom of the set (i.e. the Pitching Wedge has a beefier shaft than the 5-iron). I'm still getting used to the progressively weighted shafts and haven't quite nailed down my distances yet, but I'm getting there. Some of the differences I've noticed between these and my Callaway Apex Pros are that the FGs tend to be a few yards shorter but have a higher ball flight with significantly more spin. That difference could easily be attributed to the different shafts, as the PXis are lighter and designed to flight the ball a little bit lower. I would probably have to throw the same shafts into both sets to get a better idea on any differences between the heads.
So far, I'm a big fan of the FGs and I would highly recommend that you give them a try the next time you are in the market for irons. If you aren't a fan of the FGs and are looking for a little bit more distance, give the Forged C300s a shot, they seemed like a fantastic option too.
Now for a few pics... Unfortunately, it's been cloudy every time I've taken these clubs out to play. I'll try to snap some better pictures next time the sun is out so that you can really see these shine!
Thanks again to Wilson and MGS for providing this contest and sending me a new set of clubs! I'll add more comments after I get a few more rounds in and get a better feel for the pros and cons.
