Wilson FG Tour V2 forged iron
Sunday, October 27, 2013
Wilson has a long history of forged irons, and the FG Tour V2 is the latest forged addition.
Includes minimal offset, thin top line and a back cavity that promotes increased MOI (resistance to twisting). MSRP is $799.99 (eight irons, steel shafts); stock shaft is KBS Tour.
Forged irons have made a dramatic comeback. Only a few years ago, most irons were made of investment-cast stainless steel. Now we see forged irons, made of soft carbon steel, in the club lineup of every major club manufacturer.
In general, these irons appeal to low-handicap players, although some companies are making a pitch to golfers of average ability who probably are planning on improvement.
