This, friends, is the best equipment award in golf. They don't hand these out for buying full-page ads. Most Wanted is earned, not bought.

And these irons are Most Wanted.

Anyone interested in seeing how the numbers in the MyGolfSpy HQ translate to real golfers on the course? [It looks like over 1,800 of you were interested in doing just that!] So which forum members will get these in hand to let us know what their real-world performance is like?

I'm excited for everyone to try these out and for us to get to read your reviews. I am a confessed W/S homer, having played the Di11s, D100, D200, D300, and C300 irons. The C line is the only release that I didn't really get along with, which is what made me shy away from this opportunity. Aside from all that, W/S makes some excellent clubs and I think you all are going to really enjoy testing these.

As an FYI I added a bunch of pictures to me intro - I apologize for not having them there in the first place. I was so excited to get started that I had a brain fart.

I expect you all to get your Gary on.  Looking forward to reading about your success with these irons.  If they are anything like the V6’s... they are amazing.

I can't stop looking at these irons since Wilson posted them on instagram.  Really interested in your comparison between the cast D7's @revkev.   Wilson irons go back a long way for me, so I'll be here with you guys.  Enjoy the test!

These irons are going to really be different in what I'm currently playing in two major ways. Namely, a 6i and a 9i. I don't carry either right now. I only play a ten club set.

I haven't always done this, but I was on vacation in Dallas over the winter and was playing golf with my cousin while there. On our 3rd round we ended up walking. Which is good, I walked almost exclusively at that time, but always with my push cart. Since I didn't have a cart, and wanted to give my back some relief I took out all the odd numbered clubs and just played with a half set. It was vacation, I wasn't too worried about my score. But then I went out and shot a 77 or 78(don't remember which). Which was my best round of the trip and that got those silly gears in my head spinning.  

I thought, maybe I don't need all that many clubs. Pros carry 14, but their club head speed is much higher than mine. The 20y gap using only every other iron was a bit much, but I thought that if maybe I had 6 degrees between clubs instead of the standard 4 degrees, I might like that. So after some tinkering with the idea I worked with the Sub70 guys to build up my frankenset. They bent a stock 5i and 8i 1 degree weak for me. Then took the 7i bent it 2 degrees strong and added 1/4 to the shaft to put it right between a normal 6i and 7i. They did the same treatment for a PW to make it right between a PW and a 9i.  This is what I got:

699 Pro Black 5i  bent 1 degree weak (loft 25 degrees). Shaft length 38", lie angle of 60.5
639 CB Forged Black 7i bent 2 degrees strong (loft 30 degrees). Shaft length 37.25", lie angle 61.25 degrees
639 CB Forged Black 8i  bent 1 degree weak (loft 36 degrees), length 36.5", lie 62 degrees  
639 CB Forged Black PW bent 2 degrees strong to 42 degrees, 35.75" length, lie 62.75 degrees

So, instead of six irons from PW-5, I have four 4.   And instead of my old 10y gaps, I play 15y gaps. Which over the last few months, hasn't been an issue at all. In fact, I like it better in many ways. I still walk or ride my wheel on every round and the lighter back is noticeable, and nice. 

But all that said, I'll be back to a full iron set for this test. I'll be putting my CBX2 50 degree, and my Sub70s on the shelf to give these Wilson's the attention they deserve. Very excited for them to get here.

I think that’s really cool!!!

 

I’m in the same boat. I have 14 clubs in the bag but don’t really need them - I could easily live with 12 and in fact my 56 is only there in case I leave myself 75-85 yards accidentally.

 

I have 5 wood and use it but I could do without - I’m deadly with 7 wood and can take some off or add some with it at will

I wish I could find it - I just read a really good article about a guy playing with only five irons:  long, mid, short, pitch, sand.  And each one is a different model.  One thing I'm really interested about this is to see if a split set might be the right thing for me.  Are the GIs better in the long clubs, but the Players Distance irons better in the short?  Should be interesting
