Wilson D7 Irons

Recommended Posts

Just saw an IG post that the new Wilson D7 irons will come stock with KBS Tour Steel Shafts. Thats a pretty good stock offering. The new heads look very clean too. And all for a price tag of $599.

These are actually the only clubs that I have an interest in trying this year.

 

They fit my profile

 

I would normally now add a crack about most of you being better than me because I believe most players don’t have enough help in their irons. The later statement is true according to a survey of fitters but I have no idea whom it applies to. The fact is your swing may do fine with a slimmer sole and more of a player’s type iron even if you struggle more with golf than I do.

 

What I have learned is that despite a lower handicap my swing profile requires a thicker sole for my middle irons, hybrids rather than long irons and more loft on the three wood. So I would get why lots of guys might turn their nose up at these.

 

I have a shallow AoA, it’s my swing. These would fit me. Whether it would be worth laying out 600 or I should just stick with the G30’s that i currently game is a separate question.

W/S usually does a great job with their shaft selection to help enhance the SGI capabilities of the D line. Coming in at $599 with those shafts is a smart move.

Very nice looking clubs for SGIs. I see we're up to three rows of power holes now...

I love my C300s, and they seem to be more than forgiving. I'll have to head over to my shop this summer and take a look at how they compare.

I hit the 6 iron when GolfSpy_BarbaJo visited last month. As MGS’s Wilson Spy, he was giving the D7’s a run for their money.

Very high launch......they were kbs steel and I use graphite so it’s hard to say. I like the look and believe they would be great with the right shaft.......maybe Recoils?

 I enjoyed hitting them -- as Foz said, VERY high launching. Shaft is the Tour 80, so they're very light as well. But forgiving as heck and easy to hit -- Wilson did a nice job on the looks - not all blinged out or anything, and the distance was more than adequate. I'd like to try them with a Tour-V or C-Taper Lite.

This is what is so great about all of the different equipment option out there now, what one person likes doesn't always suit the next and so on. I am a big fan of the KBS Tour Steel shafts in my irons which intrigued me that they were stock on these. I have Tour 90 vs these 80, but the high launch/spin has changed my iron game drastically, for the better.

 

I tried hitting graphite shafts and just couldn't get a great feel for them. They felt too whippy imo. But again, what suits me probably won;t suit you and vice versa. I love it!

FYI for you veterans interested, if you call Wilson's customer service number they will give you 20% off an order up to $1000 but it can't be customized. So I bought the D7s and paid $480 for them. Great freaking deal if you asked me. As my swing speed has lowered due to injury, the increased loft/trajectory has meant that my distances haven't changed hardly.

I believe that the recoils are the stock offering in the D7.

I hit one today in the 7 iron challenge. My current TM 7 is my 150 yards. The Wilson was 160+. So I could buy 7 iron up but my current set which is paid for has a 160 club. It’s called a six iron. If you are in the market, though, give them a swing for sure!!

Can we expand on this a bit? I've been told I have a steeper than average AOA and that is why I have higher than typical ball height.  Fellow players are often amazed I hit a 8.5 degree driver - and still hit as high as I do.  What is it about the D7's, and similarly designed irons, that make them well suited to a shallow AOA?

Had my set resifted with the KBS C-Taper in matte black, with red ferrules and read and black Golf Pride MCC grips.  They not only look kinda baddass (well, at least different), the few swings I took with them the flight came WAY down, but they still had a nice, powerful feel to them. These are going to get a good going over this spring -- they do have some distance to them and if I can keep the flight down, they may prove to be useful. 😉

Stop posting in this thread - you are causing me to break several of the Ten Commandments! :)
