Wilson Staff Unveils New Staff Model Blades & CB Irons
Wilson Golf is ready for the 2024 season after redefining its Staff Model iron range by unveiling a modern take on classic Blades alongside a new CB model that should prove appealing to many golfers.
These are irons that incorporate common lines and weighting, face milling and attention to precision detailing.
“These latest club developments reflect the Wilson heritage in high performance irons, featuring many similarities in terms of the fundamental technologies and materials used. They embrace modern technology, enabling better players to improve control and deliver consistent scores,” said Jon Pergande, Manager of Wilson Golf Club Innovation.
“We designed the new irons side by side to ensure the characteristics were consistent, providing the perfect option for golfers who want to combine the two models throughout the bag,” added Pergande.
Golfshake's Equipment Expert, Ryan Rastall, has tested and reviewed all of Wilson's new irons this year, including the recently unveiled Dynapower Forged.
Staff Model Blades
Continuing the rich history of Wilson forged blade irons, many of which have been played by the game’s greats, the new Staff Model Blades are based on the timeless design that has been admired over the years.
Driven by performance, weight has been removed from the base of the hosel for a more flowing feel, with the muscle area extremely biased towards the toe. The combination of a Fluid Feel Hosel and Precision Toe Weighting pushes the Centre of Gravity (CG) towards the toe, allowing for better alignment of the CG to the centre of the face and expanding the impact area, while allowing for maximum forgiveness.
“The Staff Model Blades are common go-to clubs for our Tour players, because the precise toe weighting allows the face to hold open and not turn over in your hand,” said Pergande. “The Forged 8620 Carbon Steel construction also provides a soft feel, making it easier for an elite player to manoeuvre the ball as required,” he added.
The latest incarnation of Wilson Staff Model Blades has a Precision Milled Face incorporating Double Cut Muscle Milling for ultimate control and overall spin consistency.
The new Blades come fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Mid 115 Shaft (R/S/X) and Golf Pride Z Grips. Available this month in right and left-hand versions in 4-PW sets (2 & 3 irons available through custom fit).
RRP: £1,050 / €1,190
Staff Model CB Irons
The new Staff Model CB irons offer accomplished golfers with a confidence-inspiring look at address, coupled with the added forgiveness of a cavity-back iron.
Developed in conjunction with the Staff Model Blades, the CB also includes Precise Toe Weighting and a Fluid Feel Hosel, engineered to meet the high-performance standards expected by Tour-level players. Designed with speed and precision in mind, the sleek construction of these irons caters to golfers seeking increased forgiveness in their longer clubs. The soft Forged 8620 Carbon Steel ensures ultimate feedback, allowing players to skilfully work the ball in both directions.
The new irons secured a victory with Padraig Harrington at the TimberTech Championship, where he hit nearly 80% Greens in Regulation to win by seven shots. Harrington's enduring partnership with Wilson Golf enters its 26th season, making it one of the longest running in sport. German star, Hurly Long also uses the new CB irons along with a mix of the Staff Model Blades, contributing to his second-place finish at the recent Horizon Irish Open.
"The CB irons stand out for their exceptional stability on mishits, complemented by the cavity-back design that adds a touch of forgiveness to the overall aesthetics," added Pergande. The new Wilson Staff Model CB Irons come fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Mid 115 Shaft (R/S/X) and Golf Pride Z Grips. Available in right and left-hand versions in 4-PW sets (2 & 3 irons available through custom fit).
RRP £1,050 / €1,190
