I was able to get really great deal on this iron set that I couldn't resist.
I couldn't hit them yet because I am in MN.
I am worry that this is too much of player's iron where my handicap is too high to handle them.
Does any mid to high handicapper actually using them? Would it be too difficult to hit them consistently as mid to high handicapper?
Thanks.

Haven't hit them but I've heard great things. Personally I feel forgiveness in an iron head is a little over rated. I mean, these are cavity back irons - unless they really don't fit you I don't see it being an issue.

No, I haven't. But looking at the MPF ratings the Wilson FG Tour V6 Forged is listed as a "Player's Classic" with relatively high COG, a small head, and more traditional lofts. So yeah, they might not be ideal for a normal mid-cap amateur.

Be sure and let us know how it works out after you get a chance to play 'em.

Wilson sells about 20 sets of irons a year so it's gonna be tough for you to get any reviews

Yes, but a lot of clubs with a low MPF are actually quite forgiving. i20's for instance.

That is why he has to play them, and tell us how well they work. "On paper" they should be only for the very best ball-strikers. If you trust the MPF ratings.

Sometimes I pull out an iron I played 40 years ago and wonder how I was able to do it. lol

I hope I can play soon. Snow are beginning to melt and hopefully courses will be open soon in MN.

The final MPF score isn't a measure of forgiveness. The closest that the MPF data comes to such a measurement is the MOI, which is in the detail data.

MPF final score is essentially a grade of how close that part clubhead is to Ralph Maltby's design philosophy (low cg, cgin center of clubface, MOI, etc).

Before I took the plunge on the Edel SLS-01 irons...these were at the top of my list to try.

Very compact club head (a plus for me), minimal offset (a plus for me) and forged (a plus for me) and traditional lofts (a huge plus for me).

The downside for me was that I have an atypical fitting for irons and I cannot stand the feel of Dynamic Gold iron shafts...which is pretty much all that was available with them.

I'd love to have a set of those to mess around with but to my specs, 5-GW, and with something a bit smoother than the Dynamic Golds.

I think you will like them. Just go hit them and enjoy them and don't worry about whether you can or can't...just go do it!

Thanks for the info. I guess I am thinking too much while courses are open.

Shaft tech took a step back when Royal Precision went under and stopped making the plain Jane rifle shafts.
