I have the wilson staff fg tours. theyre my first set of forged irons. second set overall.
ive read around about them and a common response is that these sticks have a slightly higher ball flight than most forged irons. I unfortunately dont have the experience with other irons to reference to.
anybody else notice this ball flight characteristic?
Another thing is when i was fitted with a specific shaft while using the "mizuno shaft optimizer" and hitting a standard fg tour demo (TT DG s300) and the shaft i was referred to was not offered in the FG Tours by wilson staff. So i ended up getting Nippon 950GH Reg flex. The golf pro, who also hit the fgs for the last 2 years, asked me if i wanted a softer tip nippon shaft to help me get the ball in the air. Now that my ball striking has become more solid I'm afraid im hitting the ball a bit too high sometimes. Unfortunately the shaft doesn't say whether or not its a softer tip.
I'm starting to try and hit knockdown shots, but have been struggling keeping the ball down. Even when i do hit a "knockdown" it flights about as high as a normal full shot should flight.
i know reading it might be a bit harder to understand in words so i'll just explain it in a list from highest (1) - lowest (3) in terms of height of ball flight.
1. full shot (nippon)
2. knockdown (nippon)
3. full shot (preferred/common penetrating flight)
In otherwords, i feel like my full shots flight a bit higher than they should. and wasnt sure if the combination of the FGs that hit the ball higher than most forged irons, and my 950gh's shafts that could be working together to hit the ball too high.
