The Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 irons are beautiful, sweet-feeling players irons with sneaky upgrades that make them easier to hit.
In the FG Tour irons, Wilson Staff has quietly built one of the best lines of irons in golf. Each iteration has offered a substantial performance upgrade while maintaining the look and feel of a traditional players iron. The FG Tour V6 builds on the tungsten weighting used in the FG Tour V4 to take the performance to an even higher level.
Beautiful. From the moment I unboxed these irons, I was taken by their classic good looks. Wilson Staff went with a high-polish chrome for the FG Tour V6, and it gives them great visual pop. To balance the shine, they kept the graphics and colors very understated – primarily black with the smallest splash of gold.
At address, these irons have a small profile with thin soles and top lines and modest heel-to-toe lengths. In short, they’re everything that a better player wants to see.
Sound & Feel
As good as the FG Tour V6 irons look, they feel even better. These irons are soft and sweet when you catch the ball perfectly, and they provide excellent feedback. There’s a clear gradient of feel: small mishits still feel pretty good, big misses return a firm rebuke to your hands.
There are two things that make the Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 top performers: tungsten weighting and an inspired choice of shaft.
Wilson Staff first showed us the tungsten sole weighting in the FG Tour V4. In that set, the long irons had a weight in the middle of the sole and the short irons didn’t. The FG Tour V6 ups the ante by adding a third configuration. Now the long irons have tungsten weights in the heel and toe to promote high launch and forgiveness. The middle irons have the weight in the center of the sole to promote easy launch, and the scoring irons go without tungsten to keep the ball flight low.
While we remain huge advocates of being fit for the best shaft for your swing, credit has to be given to Wilson Staff for choosing the Dynamic Gold AMT as the stock shaft. You can read the full review HERE, but the short version is that the AMT gives you Dynamic Gold’s trademark stability and control while reducing the weight as the clubs get longer. The lighter shaft, paired with the tungsten weighting, makes for some of the longest, easiest-to-hit long irons in any players set.
The Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 irons are a perfect next step in a great line of irons. They retain the best parts of the previous iterations – beautiful looks, pure forged feel, and shot control – while adding a new element that makes the long irons easier to hit. This set needs to be on the must try list for all good and aspiring players.
