Normal size head, thinner top edge, not too much offset, set up is best of the lot.
Only available in D2 swingweights, Golf Stores do not promote well. Even Golf Digest won't mention these irons or carry Wilson ads.
I tried all of the sample clubs the PGA Superstore, Golfsmith, Golf Galaxy and Edwin Watts had. Cleveland, Adams, Cobra, Callaway, Nike, Mizuno, Bridgestone and Nickent. I was at the point of deciding between the Cobra FPII ' s and the Callaway X20 ' s.
During this fretting period I began re reading the Golf Digest and Golf Magazine club reviews. I had ignored what Golf Magazine rated as the #1 game improvement iron: The Wilson Pro Staff Di7.
Wilson is what we played with when we were little boys! Only Edwin Watts stocked these irons in my area (Now all stores carry them.) I tried them out and was really surprised and how the felt, hit and looked. Not too big of head and gave me the right launch angle with backspin under 4,900rpm. I am used to 5,200-5,400 which is the reason my ball flight takes off looking good like it has potential then suddenly drops out of the sky.
I compared the Cobra II, Callaway X20 and the Wilson for about 2-hours late one day. I chose the Wilson Di7 irons because even when I was exhausted, I could still get good results from the Di7 irons.
I thought I should go to Graphite but too many fitters said I should wait another few years. The iron shafts really feel better in every sense.
Now that I have played them a few rounds I am amazed how much farther I hit them and how workable they are compared to my old irons (Snake Eyes FMC01). My HC index of 17 will soon come down playing these irons and sheding a few bad habits.
If you are in the market for new irons you should not pass up an opportunity of hitting these clubs.
