FG-17 Wilson Irons: What is the groove shape? Groove tool

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

HI,

 

I have a set of Wilson FG-17 irons, purchased in 1981. I want to get a groove tool, to retool the grooves, but I don't know the shape of the grooves? I think they are V grooves, but can anyone verify this? I don't want to accidentally screw up the grooves with the wrong shape tool. And by the way, I play these irons regularly.

 

Also any tips on a good groove tool? Thanks.

 

Bob

Yeah I would say all irons made back in the early 80's were V grooves (except PINGs).  Did a little search and found this.

Thanks. It was the eBay link (thank you very much) which I also found, about a week ago, that got me thinking. I'll try to contact Wilson and see what they say ... I'll post back if I get an answer.

FYI: I wrote to Wilson and they responded ... Yes, the FG-17 clubs (up until 1985 at least) are V-shaped grooves.
