Stop it - youse guys are making me blush 'n stuff....

So the rep just left, and got the full run down on everything.  AS Barbs mentioned above, we can't say anything  specific for a few more weeks, but a couple teases.  The V6 replacement is incr

Got to try the D9's on an unseasonably warm day here in New Hampshire a few days ago, and on grass!  Here are some observations... 1. If it's high and far you seek, these will deliver.  2. K

Besides the D7 forged that were released in January and we're testing, no.

Scuttlebutt around the web is a D9 line coming soon... I'd assume that would be the D7 SGI line replacement, and the D7 forged would not have a refresh this cycle.

Yes, to what Russ said above.  Expect to see a new D9 driver in the new year and probably a stock GI D series iron, would make since to match the driver in D9 name, but we will see.

The rep is coming by our shop next week, so I should get all the details then.

I'm looking forward to seeing where they go with this, and if they'll keep the Launch Pads which I don't think have been moving very well for them. I'm still a huge fan of the D200 line (wish my son would let me take them back out of his bag!) and I thought the D300s were great for the short time I had them... thanks a lot, stupid tennis elbow.

let us know please, I had heard a new cavity back must just be a rumor

I will certainly pass on what I hear, and if any pictures are allowed, I will get some.

The clock on the wall says it's time for a D7 driver/metal wood/hybrid refresh, as well as a D7 iron update. They usually announce these in early-mid January. There's also a long-rumored update to the FG Tour V6 irons coming - to be branded Staff Model. We shall see. And we may see a Staff Model branded driver, as well. 

And to echo @fozcycle and others, the D7 irons have been very successful (remember, successful for Wilson and successful for Callaway are two different successfuls), and the D7 driver is sneaky good. Launch Pad? Yeah, we'll see...it'll get its two year run and we'll see what they do with the category. 

Their global marketing director was let go a few weeks ago - no word yet on a replacement, so we'll see how that all plays out.

 I hope they sort out the marketing of the brand.  Seems like the product is up to par but they lack a focused marketing effort. 

Yep. They don’t have any consistency. That and finding the clubs in store sometimes can be an issue. I am a bonafide W/S homer but their brand messaging is well behind almost all of the other OEMs.

Hopefully the rumored CB is is branded similarly to (and maybe even blendable with) their blades and utility iron that came out last year. Best looking irons in the market IMO.

Great- so now that I've set my sights on D7 forged and am waiting "patiently" for prices to come down, there's a V6 replacement coming?! Different categories, I know, but it seems I'm on the fence in many categories...

They've been talking about a V6 replacement for a while, and it will definitely fall under the Staff Model banner like the blades, wedges and utility irons (my favorites!). You'll have to wait another year for the D7 Forged to go into closeout though - they're pretty strict on 2-year cycles and those are at the tail-end of the first year. It would not be a surprise, though, to see them come out with a special or limited edition D7 Forged this year in black. They did that with the C300 Forged - just to give the product a little boost in year two.

Update -- look for a V6 replacement to be announced fairly soon, with D7 replacements in mid-January.  Also something interesting in the ball category by the middle of next month.

Definitely looking forward to see what they introduce in January... with the balls, maybe an updated Duo Pro? We shall see.

Oh for sure- the product cycles and markdowns are steady- I was thinking used market. It does seem like ages since the V6 came out though.

No. As @GolfSpy Barbajo noted above, those are still in the first year of their release cycle. So I wouldn't expect a replacement introduced until late 2021 roughly.

They were released in January this year and there's four of us currently testing them. https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/40126-2020-official-member-review-wilson-d7-forged-irons/
