Wilson Staff FG Tour V6: A Top Performing Player’s Iron

wilson staff fg tour v6

In the “player’s” iron category, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better performer than the Wilson Staff FG Tour V6. The flagship forged iron from Wilson Golf updates its looks, forgiveness, and playability from the previous version, the FG Tour V4. We detail how new construction materials, weight placement, and design makes this iron a top performer.

Wilson Staff FG Tour V6

What They’re Made Of

The Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 irons are forged from 8620 carbon steel. This steel gives the irons their soft feel and durability. Though not as soft as 1020 steel, 8620 carbon steel still has the buttery feel you’d expect. The 8620 adds alloy to the carbon steel, giving it durability.

Weight Placement

Engineers of the Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 take tungsten weight, placing it in different places than the irons predecessor. To refresh your memory, the FG Tour V4 had 18 grams of tungsten in the center of the sole in the 3-7 irons. Placing the weight there kept the CG low, letting you launch it high and stop faster.

The FG Tour V6 irons make 2 changes. First, Wilson increased the weight from 18 grams to 20 grams. They also put the weight in a different place. In the long irons (3,4,5) the 20 grams is split between the heel and toe. Not only does this keep the CG low, it adds forgiveness on mishits by adding mass to those areas. In the mid-irons (6,7) the 20 grams stays in the same position as the V4, the middle. The added weight gives your shots more height and stopping power.

Design Differences

The FG Tour V6 irons have what Wilson calls “Impact Area Mass” on the back of the irons. Resembling a triangle, the muscle-back adds to the feel and workability of the irons. It also provides a bit of forgiveness as well.

The last design feature to mention also is also on the back of the club. Gone is the black and gold badging from the V4. THe FG Tour V6 has black lettering and subtle, gold accenting. Otherwise, the club has a clean, polished look that is very sharp.

Is the FG Tour V6 the Total Player’s Iron Package?

The updates Wilson did to the FG Tour V6 go a long way in helping improve the club’s performance. The improvements were so good, the FG Tour V6 irons were voted the “Most Wanted Player’s Iron” by MyGolfSpy. Take these beauties for a spin and discover how well they perform for yourself.
