From the bladelike FG62 irons to the game-improvement Di11s, there's something for everyone

Wilson Staff DXi Driver

The DXi combines trajectory control and crossover appeal to deliver maximum distance for handicappers of all levels. Trajectory control is achieved by manipulating mass to discrete areas of the club, depending on the loft. Two high-density tungsten rubber inserts fine-tune the location of the center of gravity and move mass farther back in the head as loft increases. Wilson's proprietary 5-Zone variable face thickness increases the high center of gravity in the heel and toe for a wider hot zone.

Wilson Staff DXi Fairway Metals

The DXi was designed under the careful eye of Padraig Harrington. The large-radius sole helps the head to sit square at address on flat lies but allows manipulation on uneven terrain. Also, the heavy mass concentrated on the sole combined with the sloped crown keeps the center of gravity low and allows for higher launch.

Wilson Staff DXi Hybrids

As with the fairway metals, the DXi hybrids were designed with input from Harrington and have the same large-radius, heavy-mass sole.

Wilson Staff Di11 Irons

This game-improvement iron was designed with one thing in mind—distance. The fifth generation of this model, the Di11 has a higher volume and a wider cavity than its predecessors. Couple that with the large, unsupported thin face and you have an iron that delivers a sweet spot that's 24% larger than past iterations. The cavity of the Di11 is also coated with an elastomer to reduce unwanted vibration on mishits.

Wilson Staff FG62 Irons

The FG62 combines the heritage and look of Staff blades with the size and feel of a modern player's iron. The delicate balance of top-line thickness, offset and blade length and shape suit the eye of the blade player, while the club's precision-forged soft 8620 carbon steel provides feedback at impact.
