Wilson Prostaff SGI Golf Package Set Review
Package sets are a superb way for beginners to get their hands on a set of clubs without the difficulty of searching and understanding the differences between some of the best drivers and irons on the market. You can normally get your hands on a good package set for a much cheaper price than if you were to purchase all your clubs individually.
While some package sets are cheaper and designed for the beginner golfer, such as the Inesis 100 package set, there are some package sets, such as the TaylorMade RBZ SpeedLite package set that is a completely viable option for a golfer simply looking to upgrade their sticks.
The Wilson Prostaff SGI package set is superb value for money, providing the user with 10 clubs in total - Driver, fairway wood, hybrid, 6-9-iron, two wedges, a putter and a bag. For the price-point, it's clear to see why this is considered one of the best package sets on the market.
The fact this set offers 10 clubs to begin with is superb as you then still have four more clubs you could add to compliment your set, before meeting the 14-club limit.
The irons and the putter were the stand-out positives in this package set. The men's regular flex shaft that comes as standard in these irons, was much more stable than I anticipated and felt very solid when I put them to the test. The thicker top line on the irons will boost confidence when set at address and the large sweet spot made it particularly easy to send high soaring iron shots into greens. These irons also offered superb forgiveness - something all beginners will love to see and feel.
Moving onto the putter, I found it to be very good; it was just a shame that a headcover was not provided. I was particularly impressed with the look of the club at address. It gives you major confidence in your stroke thanks to a small dot and alignment line on the traditional blade design.
Although it felt a little longer than perhaps your average length putter, there is plenty of grip available to adjust to a good comfort level. However, a putter is a very personal thing, so you could always visit your local professional and get it readjusted.
After the positives, I feel that the upper end of the bag lets the set down slightly. The woods and the driver feel a bit more unforgiving and whippier (in the shaft) than the irons.
The driver is set at 10.5 degrees, with the fairway wood at 15. As it is a set designed for beginners, I feel Wilson could have added a few more degrees as it was quite difficult to get the ball in the air.
Another disappointing factor was that it felt very dead off the face, with the noise replicating a loud thud, rather than the satisfying sound you get from other golf clubs. However, if you are a beginner to the game, then you may not be worried about the noise, and more concerned about propelling the ball forward.
I have to say though, that the woods and driver look good from above, with the all black head really exposing the white alignment aid. However, I wasn’t a huge fan of how the driver sat; the heel felt a bit upright, giving the impression that the sweet spot was smaller than it actually was.
Lastly, moving onto the carry bag, which provides you with supportive shoulder straps and four spacious pockets for your rain gear, golf balls, tees etc. When it is crammed with all these necessities, it is still extremely light, but if you did want to put it onto a trolley, then there would be no issue with it.
The pro's massively out-way the cons when it comes to the Wilson Prostaff SGI package set. The irons, wedges and putters provided superb performance and feel which surprised me upon testing. While the top-end of the bag didn't suit my eye and the shafts were a little on the flexible side, it's worth noting I'm a single figure golfer and there's no reason why these woods wouldn't work immensely well for someone just starting their journey.
