Wilson STAFF vs Wilson STAFF's reputation

114 posts in this topic

All my friends talk to me and say "Wilson sucks, I can't believe Padraig plays them.". Yet, I have done some research and they have some nice clubs, like their new irons. Also, their golf balls are pretty nice and not extremely expensive. Not sure about their drivers but by the look of the Fybrids, they don't look bad. What do you guys think?

Not a fan of the look of the drivers, 3 woods or fybrids, but their Fg59 irons are pretty nice looking blades.

wilson sucks, i had a putter and a lob wedge. they both suck. But i think wilson stuff is good stuff, just haven't gain their reputation yet. They are different product line tho.

I like some of there new stuff especially the blades the smooth driver is pretty sweet looking to havn't hit it though Paddy must like it to as you can imagine he's probably had companies calling him day and night wanting him to play there stuff after his little run in the last couple of majors, we'll see what he does at contract time but I bet he stays.

My first set was some Wilson Staff forged, fluid feel irons. They were a hand me down from my late grandfather. The 3 iron was my favorite. Incidently, one of the last times my grandfather hit a ball on the course they lived on in Troy, NY, was with the PW. From about 100 yards out, it rolled up and right in the hole! Nice memory. If I am not mistaken, Wilson Staff irons have been around quite a while and were quite popular at one time. I have always looked at the company as if they have already had their heyday, but, are still around, unlike some companies most notably MacGregor. Wilson seems to still make some nice forged irons, though. I would consider them if in the market. I am not sure what other people impressions of the company are, but in recent years I remember those Fat Shaft clubs that never seemed to catch on.

Yeah i agree, they are kinda looked down upon, but they have strengths and weaknesses. And you're right about paddy, he is content with them obviously because he could be sponsored by any.

I learned to play using a set of Wilsons and quite liked them. From what I gather Wilson had a great reputation back in the day but then things stared slipping quality wise and they lost it. I may be wrong on this but isn't Wilson Staff a relatively new development, almost like a re-branding? From what I've seen lately they seem to be making some nice clubs these days, I've hit their hybrids and one particular set of irons but I can't remember which ones and they felt pretty good. Hopefully they keep putting out some good equipment and get back to being a top name in golf.

I am playing Wilson Ci7's and get a lot of good comments at the course. Most "good" golfers know Wilson Staff is a terrific brand.

In my case, I hit a lot of irons, and found the Ci7's to be the best for my handicap and price. I will recommend them to anyone from 0 to 25. Maybe 0 to 5 the pi5, but that is it. The only irons I like more are the Mizzu mp-62.

Don't forget they beat Titleist, cobra, nike, etc, etc on the Golf Digest thing.

Wilson irons are very underated. The Pi5's are really great sticks. You get no better value out of a set of players irons than you get with those.

Yeah I agree, they are pretty underrated.

I was talking to my dad and he was telling me "back in the day" when he was younger they were "the clubs" to have.

i personally think the whole Wilson Staff line is way underrated. they make some awesome irons. i would love to game the FG59's, the Di9's, the Ci7's, the Fi5's, they are all GREAT irons.

The blades look great, but there is something about the Ci line that just looks chincy to me, even though they probably hit great.

Wilson Staff clubs were very hgihly thought of when I played golf back in the 1980s. Coming back after fifteen years, I found a set of Wilson Staff irons I liked and hit well. I've always liked the balls too, and the price is right.

well I thought the idea behind the FG59 blades were to commemorate the fact that no other golf company has as many majors (59) won with their clubs? so I'd definitely say they're one of the 'greats'.

but they've also had me hooked for life, so I might be biased haha. ever since I learned to play on some beat up wilson blades. just wish their invex hadn't sucked (got it for free) really need to dump it

    • I don't think we're at the point where all that stuff can really be integrated quite yet. Too many competing standards and stuff right now. Soon. Not yet.
    • Of the six military guys I asked about it, five felt it was exactly the kind of thing they fought to protect and had no problem with it. The sixth said he thought it was disrespectful but said so is killing people and blowing shit up and the military does that itself. Have you polled enough of the military to see whether it was seen as disrespectful by the majority?
    • Of course the outrage is after the fact.  As it is with most things.  Are you stating you would have to personally witness something as it happens to be outraged or disagree with it?   I don't believe it is something that can be "proved" either.  I don't think it needs to be.  If the majority of the military feels it is disrespectful, than I tend to agree with that.
    • My house is dumb as a brick.  And 2x4 posts.  And drywall.  And paint.
    • No. Liking the entirety of your country, your government, etc. is not a binary state. You don't even like everything about your wife. Or children. Or golf. @Gunther, never one to disappoint with that crap. More below… You never give people enough credit. Guess what? You can support a person's right to protest while completely disagreeing with whatever they're protesting. It isn't. But your constant attempts to pigeonhole do more to divide than they do to gain understanding, find common ground, and discuss things intelligently. I'll call it like I see it - you're intellectually lazy when it comes to anything political. That's why I think you pigeonhole everything into "liberal" and "correct" (in your opinion). And hey, I tend to vote Republican. We're probably more alike than you imagine, politically… except that I try to look at things separately, when I do take the time to consider it, while you seem to want to just pigeonhole and spout. Others have said it, but you can't "prove" that it's disrespectful. It's just your opinion. And anyone else's. At the risk of making a post that's not "on topic" enough that I'd moderate it if it weren't my own post (though mods are and always have been free to moderate my posts as they see fit)… my thoughts on the matter include: I don't think it's disrespectful to sit. I think you should probably have a reason to sit, because if you garner attention for sitting you'd better have an answer as to why, not just "I don't know, stuff sucks here right now." He seems to have had a reason, so okay. Sitting is no different, IMO, than burning a flag. Protesting in front of Capitol Hill. If a "regular person" sits, nobody will care. A few people might say "what a jerk" in their minds, but they're not going to care if he has an issue. They will if a celebrity sits, so he used the fame to get his point across. I'm not entirely sure what he was protesting, so I don't know if I agree or disagree with him. I know people who support gay marriage but who oppose welfare. Or the opposite. IMO, things are rarely so clearly divided along party lines. I know military people who think what he did was terrible, and others who think it was a great expression of the freedom their fighting and work has allowed for. As usual, since it's politics, I don't give it a whole ton of thought. But what little thoughts I've given it are right there.
