Golf Monthly Verdict

The outstanding feel and stunning looks made me want to go back to using bladed clubs. Clearly this is a niche product, but the attention to detail is fantastic, and represents the step up in quality that the entire Wilson range has made in recent years.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Truly beautiful irons, with some subtle but stunning small touches to give a unique overall look. The feel from the middle is outstanding, and the ability to keep the ball down will please those looking to control their ball flight. The narrow sole and look behind the ball gives the impression you can strike the ball from any type of lie. The shelf appeal and look in the bag is up there with the best-looking sets on the market.

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    As you’d expect, the design is only suited to highly competent strikers of the ball. The long irons are particularly difficult to hit, and there’s little forgiveness for shots that don’t find the middle of the face. Those used to modern cavity designs with stronger lofts will see a drop off in distance through the bag.
