May 13, 2015--Wilson Golf has introduced the latest addition to its FG Tour™ line, the new Wilson Staff FG Tour V4 irons. Long irons can be replaced by versatile FG Tour V4 utility irons.The V4 technological advancements are based on the popular FG Tour V2 irons.
"Our main goal was to continue to innovate and improve upon our great forged iron heritage, especially as it relates to playability, versatility and optimal ball flight," says Global Director of Innovation, Michael Vrska.
Wilson Staff engineers have improved turf interaction and control from all lies by optimizing sole camber.
The innovation team also thinned the upper portion of the face by 11% where no impacts occur, to reposition mass where it can better help the Feel player optimize launch and spin.
The 18-gram tungsten sole weight featured in the 3- through 7-irons lowers the center of gravity and increases launch angle without increasing spin. This produces a higher peak height on long and mid-iron shots, and thus a steeper angle of descent for holding greens and attacking tough pins.
The True Temper Dynamic Gold DG Pro shafts, with progressive steel shaft technology, feature variably-sized steps in the bottom half of the shaft to promote workability, responsiveness and trajectory.
Precision milled grooves on a forged 8620 carbon steel allow golfers to control spin and shot-to-shot consistency. The FG Tour V4 irons come complete with tour-preferred premium mirror nickel-chrome finish plating and the Lamkin Crossline Black grip.
The perfect long iron compliment
For golfers looking for an alternative to long irons, the new FG Tour V4 utility irons are a perfect match.
Developed as a versatile alternative to hybrids and long irons, the FG Tour V4 utilities are forged for precision, performance and playability from the tee.
“The FG Tour V4 utility irons are an extension of the FG Tour line, helping to hit long shots into greens and to control ball flight in the wind”, comments Jon Pergande, Global Manager of Irons and Wedges.
The extremely thin, responsive face is made from Carpenter Custom 455 maraging stainless steel – the strongest and most premium available – which improves ball speed and distance. This material freed up weight so that mass could be moved low and to the toe for an optimized center of gravity.
The FG Tour V4 utilities feature a 7-gram adjustable weight positioned in the center of the sole, helping Feel players to fine-tune ball flight through custom fitting. A 9-gram tungsten weight placed in the toe eliminates any draw bias in the head and provides the ideal center of gravity.
The 90-gram stock MRC Kuro Kage Black 90 graphite shaft features a smooth bend profile with a soft mid-section balanced by slightly stiffer tip and butt sections.
FG Tour V4 Utilities versus FG Tour V4 Irons
- Longer blade lengths and lighter, longer shafts for increased distances.
- Wider soles and toplines and slightly more offset for more forgiveness and workability.
- Similar lofts, lies and swing weights for ease of transition from iron to utility club.
