Great write up, you did almost exactly what I would have done if I'd won the contest 😁😎.

Good stuff CW. I have the V6 as well. While they aren't my full time gamer set, not a person comes into my office without picking one out of the bag and proceeds to whistle and drool over them.

 

I need to play them a bit more, they are the best feeling clubs I've hit when struck pure.

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.

Thank you for sharing that. they look gorgeous. Enjoy.

Watch Rick Shiels video, as he drools all over them, actually I think he even games them he likes em so much. I think you made a great choice.

they are a shorter club due to the very traditional lofts, so don't worry bout that.

I love seeing a winner post up on the set they won, great job!

And congrats on a flame throwing serious set of stix.

Also I found out when I ordered mine they are 1/4 inch shorter stock shafts than most other OEM's

      When it comes to PING many things come to mind, quality, engineering, performance and irons are among the first things most people will think of.   And with the release earlier this year of the G410 irons, PING has hit on each one of those characteristics. 
      Following the huge success of the G400 irons, PING has hit a home run with the striking black and red colors of this iron, as well as a being a bit more streamlined in all the right places.   PING has achieved the rare feat of providing an iron that has a profile appealing to even the most discerning of golfers, but yet still offering the forgiveness and help that higher handicaps look for. 

      We are looking for three forum members to join staff member Golfspy_Stroker in testing, reviewing and keeping a set of these G410's built to their custom specs.  Testing will require a nearly two month commitment of putting the irons in play on the course, at the range and providing ongoing commentary in the forum thorough out the process. 
      As an extra bonus to the irons, the selected testers will have the option to choose Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips equipped with Arccos.  The clubs will come with a 99 day free trial to arccos.  After that the tester would be responsible for paying for the subscription in order to continue it.   It will be a great way to add data to your review. 
      PING has opened this testing to all golfers regardless of country of residence.   All you have to do to be eligible for the testing is follow the below instructions.
       
      In a post in this thread please provide the following information...AND DO NOT QUOTE this post when replying!
      First Name/State or Country of residence
      Handicap
      Current irons in Play
      The carry distance of the your 7 iron
      That's it.   Good luck to everybody
      We'll be selecting the testers within the next 10 to 14 days, so check back to see if you've been selected!

      ===========================================================================================
      YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE....

      Please join me in congratulating these members selected from a very large and diverse applicant pool:

      Lynx Golf Continues Momentum with Launch of LynxGolfUSA.com, Release of Black Cat Lines
        (Weybridge, Surrey, UK) – Lynx® Golf – the iconic equipment brand trusted by multiple major championship winners over its storied history – unveils LynxGolfUSA.com, a new website providing American golfers access to the manufacturer’s innovative lines, including the new Black Cat Series.

      Launch of the site coincides with new social media channels, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and will feature unique blog content, newsletter sign-up and more. Bolstering the introduction of the new site and social media channels is the U.S. debut of the latest generation of the famed Black Cat line, which delivers leading-edge technology in an attractive and classic aesthetic.  
       
      “The U.S. site is the latest step in our journey to bring this iconic brand back to a place of prominence in the American golf market,” says Stephanie Zinser, CFO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “Black Cat is the perfect series to accompany our website and social launches as golfers have fond memories of previous iterations, but that nostalgia will quickly be replaced with modern performance that maximizes both distance and accuracy.”
       
      The Black Cat line features innovations unique to the Lynx brand: Effective Energy Transfer – Each driver, fairway wood and hybrid are engineered with proprietary technology designed to disperse energy across the club face, offering greater forgiveness on off-centre hits.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Weight Bar System – Found in the line’s driver and fairway woods, the system transfers weight from the front to the back of the clubhead, giving players control over their preferred launch and spin rate.                                                                                                                                                                             Hollow-Head Technology with Variable Face Thickness – Each iron distributes weight across the hitting surface while a polymer-filled hollow cavity in the head allows for one of the thinnest forged faces in the industry. This provides more effective energy transfer across the face for increased ball speeds and a higher, more stable MOI throughout the set.  Over the past several years, the Lynx brand has made a resounding impact in the U.K., as the company has recorded double-digit annual sales increases every year since 2013. This growth has been driven by several successful products which will be featured on LynxGolfUSA.com including the popular Prowler VT irons, Prowler Forged irons, and Tigress line of women’s clubs.                                    
      “Without our success in Europe and around the world, days like today are not possible” says Steve Elford, CEO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “What golfers are about to see and experience in the U.S. started nearly a decade ago when our team set out to restore the glory once associated with the iconic brand.”
        
      Founded in the 1970’s by John Riley Sr. and Carl Ross, Lynx® Golf quickly established a massive fanbase among the game’s best players. This included legendary ambassadors who trusted the brand to help them capture victories at the 1992 Masters and 1994 US Open, among other wins.
       
      Lynx’s renowned product lines include everything from TOUR-caliber clubs, such as the Prowler VT irons, to products geared for mid-to-high handicappers. At the professional level, the brand continues to draw talent, as its ambassadors include the legendary Dame Laura Davies and former European Tour standout, and current Sky Sports TV presenter, Nick Dougherty, as well as LET players Lydia Hall, Becky Brewerton and Trish Johnson.  
        About Lynx® Golf
        
      Lynx® Golf concentrates on developing high quality, technologically-advanced but affordable golf clubs, backed up by great customer service. In the UK, it has gained a strong foothold in ‘green grass’ golf accounts – retail operations typically run at golf courses by PGA Professionals - with clubs designed and assembled in the UK at the company’s Weybridge, Surrey, headquarters.

      I have a set of JPX 919 hot metal pro irons, 4 - GW, kbs c taper light stiff shafts, that have been played for about 15 rounds and hit for 5 range sessions. Still pretty much look new (will post pictures later), but looking to potentially trade for a set of black cobra forged tec irons in similar shape, or a set of 919 forged. The clubs are fine, but the added distance I get compared to my old clubs is a little more than I need. 
      All standards for length, lie, etc. If in the metro Detroit area, would be willing to meet up to make the trade to save on shipping. 
      GONE AND CAN BE LOCKED DOWN!

      This review coincided with the National D7 Challenge that Wilson Staff ran through the first 3 months of the season.   To be eligible for the testing, forum members had to go to a Wilson Demo Day or local golf store and demo the D7 iron and see how much distance they gained. 
      As a result the selected members received a full set of D7 irons.  This testing is also a milestone for MGS of sorts as it marks the first official club test for our women members.  So we're excited to have a couple of them chiming in on what we are sure will be some very helpful and insightful reviews. 

      The Testers are as follows:
      @Steve2100                                     Stage 1                 Stage 2
      @Tarheelvolvo                                  Stage 1                 Stage 2
