Wilson Golf is looking to build on the success of its D7 range by launching the D7 Forged irons, which combine distance, looks and feel to create a pure players iron with Tour-level appeal.
The company’s Power Hole technology has been taken to the next level by incorporating a urethane-filled chamber located inside the head – and lower on the clubface – that flexes on impact. This combination allows the inner face to flex while reducing vibration for a more solid and consistent feel at impact.
Along with improved sound, the D7 Forged irons feature a new clubhead design – including a more compact head and ideal toe height – with a thinner topline and minimal offset to deliver ultimate distance and feel.
The thin clubface is forged from soft 8620 carbon steel and features a wider-sole supported by the power chambers. The thicker sole allows for more aggressive power holes and a lower centre of gravity to drive high ball speeds, with a higher launch and spin.
“Combining the distance technologies from the original D7 line with the aesthetics of Wilson Staff’s players irons, the D7 Forged irons provide an ideal blend of maximum distance and ultimate feel for golfers looking for effortless distance and ultimate control,” said Jon Pergande, Manager of Golf Club Innovation. “Through the optimized sole and face thickness, urethane-filled Power Chamber and centered power holes, the new D7 Forged provides golfers world-class ball speeds, shot-making ability and a soft forged feel across the entire club face.”
The Wilson Staff D7 Forged irons are available from mid-January, with stock shaft options of the premium lightweight KBS S-Taper in steel and True Temper Catalyst Black 80 in graphite. They are fitted with Golf Pride’s Tour Velvet grip.
RRP: £699/€799 (4-PW) and £599/€689 (5-PW) for steel shafts, and £699/€799 for graphite (5-PW). Other irons (3, SW & GW) are available through custom fitting.
