The Wilson Staff Series of irons consists of 5 models: Di9 Distance, Ci7 Control, Pi7 Performance, Fg59 Forged and Legacy (5 versions). The line is marked with stainless steel heads, with its models made to accommodate novice players as well as low-handicappers. All models, except for the Fg59--the company's Tour blade--contain modified cavity backs, slight perimeter (heel-toe) weighting and wide soles. New Staff irons are fitted off the rack with True Temper steel and UST graphite shafts (select models), available in standard flexes. Wilson Staff irons (2009 pricing) are found in the $500 (Di9) to $900 (Fg59) range.


The Wilson Staff Series is a vast line. For the better player, the Fg59 blades are superior ball workers, capable of low, missile-like ball flights. Di9, Ci7 and Pi7 are especially impressive and move through impact nicely and forgiving on mis-hits. Legacy irons are an impressive line in themselves, with the Pi5 being workhorses, boasting comfort, workability and control.


The new line of Wilson Staff irons brings few flaws to the sacrifice table. Staff wedges, however, feel a bit sluggish and bulky, which may have some players reaching for more streamlined wedges from Nike, Titleist or Cleveland.

Bottom Line

Each model in the Wilson Staff family is a true leader in the premium golf club game. From the stealth performance of the Fg59s to the superb game-improvement features of the Di9s and Ci7s, Wilson Staff clubs are a true versatile line of irons.
