Wilson Staff D7 Forged

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Hey guys,

after much indecision and back and forth on clubs, I have settled on the D7 Forged..I am getting back into golf and want to "future proof" my clubs for my game without "upgrading" once my performance increases.

i have a tester tomorrow at my local range, and booked in for a custom fit before I order them on Thursday. Must credit American Golf store as they have been great for customer service!

does anyone here with them or tried them, have any feedback it would be much appreciated if so..

 

 

thanks, Alex.

I've heard nothing but great things about Wilson's line of forged clubs.  Enjoy them.

Thanks.one quick question mate, I have a driver, 3 wood and a 4 hybrid. Will this be ok with 5-PW or will I ideally need a 4-PW to bridge that gap with the wilson clubs?

It just depends on how you hit your 4 hybrid and 5 iron.  What is the loft of your 3 wood, 4 hybrid and 5 iron?  I personally had a driver, 3 wood (15 degrees of loft), 2 iron (18*),  3 hybrid (20*) 4 hybrid (22*) then 5-pw.  I found that I was too close together with my upper clubs.  I recently switched and got a 5 wood (18*) which replaced my 2 iron and I eliminated my 3 hybrid as well.  I found that this works best for me.  Do you have an idea how far you hit each club?

Thanks for the input mate.

im not sure on my lengths, I have just ordered a launch monitor for the range to work on my yardage. 

I had my confirmation on my custom fit with the guy at the American golf shop and the site pro. Excellent service.

Only bummer is my clubs will be around 4 weeks till I get in hand..but I asked if it was possible to come to the range and use the D7 when I’m up (few time’s a week) until they arrive? No problem!

im pumped, they were lovely to hit when done right.

That's great news!  I am happy for you, now you just have to play the waiting game...and that's the hardest part.  Enjoy them and let me know how you like them.

Just back from the range, borrowed the stores D7 7 iron to hit for half an hour..even with the crappie range balls, man, does it feel nice to hit.

i would advise anyone looking for new clubs to not write these off, try them..

Fan of the D7 Forged as well. If you get a chance, try Wilson's Staff Model Utility irons to fill in the gap between your 5 iron and three wood. the 21 and 24 degree irons are sweet, and very easy to hit.

I have always loved Wilson Irons. I used to have a set D3's which I traded in on a set of Tour 100 Blades. When I came to buy my current set I had limitations due to an illness so unfortunately the D6 was not an option, mind you I did test it and it felt amazing.

I find that Wilson are one of the most underestimated clubs but also one of the best on the market.

Enjoy.

I have hit them and they are some of the greatest irons I’ve ever hit.

I laughed this morning when I saw these get Most Wanted because when I hit them I thought these HAVE to win something.

Ill put it this way, when I was hitting these at Watts a dude next to me in the other bay was also hitting them. This dude bought two sets while I was in there of D7s. Two identical sets.

These irons are the real deal boys.

American golf also price matched another UK website so I saved around 15-20 percent, which I’m so stoked about.

even without the discount there are awesome clubs for the dollar!

Hey guys,

I love these clubs, feel so good when you hit it right. And I am also surprised at how forgiving these forged irons are, still need to get used to them but loving them so far..

‘and I know it’s not the be all and end all, but, damn they look sooo good.

I just put the D7 Forged in my bag as well. Two range sessions and 1 round in the books - They're delightful irons.

Only frustrating part was I had zero use for them on the front 9 except for one shot, a 5i punch around a tree 🙄  Funny how you can go long stretches without needing a standard iron. Finally got my opportunities on the back. The highlight was the 13th hole, par 3, 141 to the pin, slightly elevated green sloping back to front. I decided to pull out my 9i without really having a good understanding of my distances with these irons. My buddy who is a longer hitter than I am questioned my choice, thinking that the hole was playing longer with the breeze. Long story long, I flushed it and landed 5' directly behind the pin. Spin seemed fine as it hopped once and stuck. Let me just say that finding the center of the face generated the purest feeling I can imagine with an iron, and a ball flight that I am still day dreaming about. 

My buddy who questioned my club choice had also questioned my choice in brand when I told him that I had settled on Wilson Staff. I believe his response was "Interesting...Wilson???"

I am a little too young (33) to remember Wilson Staff dominating the game. But I am so enthused about gaming a classic brand who finds itself in the underdog role. Their value proposition is incredible (I also added the Wilson Infinite Bean putter to the bag, replacing my ancient Ping Zing 2).

I now am officially a Wilson Staff homer. I hope for both of our sakes these irons will bring us new low scores and pure joy for the next 10 years. Cheers!

Back from a local driving range, and I have a question for you fine people..but first..

my biggest culprit in my game is definitely trying to "smash" the ball, but when I slow it down, omg the difference!

even with these hard rocks I’m hitting, the feel off these D7s, unbelievably awesome!

i hit a perfect 7 iron (I know it’s not all about distance but I’m curious) and I had to double check the yardage but was falling short of the blue flag / bunker on the range which is 174 yards. So I’m estimating a 165-170 carry..and now the question..

how much yardage do you guys reckon is lost with a range ball against a pro V etc...? Surely 10 yards+??

 

sorry for the rant, but I honestly can’t get over these irons!
