Midsize heads are designed to provide a classic look with forgiveness and playability. A one-piece ‘Soft Response Insert’ across the cavity gives a solid sound and improved feel for most types of strike. Weight is moved to the heel and toe for added stability and control. The Wilson Staff Ci9 irons should suit golfers who would like a thinner top line from a forgiving iron, want added technology without being too fussy at address, and need a confidence boost with their long irons.

A high-tech looking cavity is combined with a comparatively traditional look at address. The long irons really stood out because of the levels of consistency they provided. The 4-iron was far easier to hit than other cavity-back sets that we have tested, while the top line is thin enough to attract the eye of a wide range of golfers.
