Wilson Staff is making a comeback
November 16, 2012
My first twenty years in golf, I played only Wilson Staff irons. Then, beginning in the 70s, the quality of the clubs began a fast and serious slide. The chrome plating on the last set I owned in 1976 literally fell off the clubs. I went next to Hogan, then Mizuno, then Taylormade. But when Rockbottom offered these Ci9s for $270, I decided to give them a try. So far, I'm really pleased. The Uniflex shafts fit my swing well and I like the way the clubheads set up behind the ball at address. Best of all, these boys are really solid when you make a good move through the ball. Unlike other reviewers, I don't notice any big gain in yardage, but the feeling of a well-hit ball flying of the faces of these irons reminds me of why I hit those old Wilson Staffs thirty years ago. And at $270, they are a real bargain.
Pros:Thin top line inspires confidence at address, and straight leading edge simplifies alignment.
