I am thinking about getting these irons and have heard good things

Does anyone, or has anyone played them here?

Decent price for them:

Would it be an improvement over my slingshots?

I have heard good things and I went to took at them in person, and I think they're a super nice.  One thing to consider, they are $500 at Golftown plus tax, so total of $570.  There is a very reputable seller on ebay selling them for $345 plus $36 shipping.  They use USPS, and I can tell you from tons of shipping from U.S. to Canada experience, that oustide of taxes, I have never been hit with any additional fees when using USPS.  So at worst you would pay $345 plus tax, $393 plus $36 shipping, so a total of $429, which is a $140 dollar savings.  It is a buy it now item, so the price will not go up.  A lot of times I used USPS and have not even been charged taxes, so the savings could be even greater!

You're welcome.  I have a friend who works at Golftwon and the cheapest he could them was $425 + tax.  I almost bought this set of the ebay seller, but then my wife bought me new irons, and that is the only reason I didn't get them.

In one of my sacks of sticks..... [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/image/id/119102/width/1000/height/800][IMG]http://thesandtrap.com/image/id/119102/width/1000/height/500[/IMG][/URL] The FST ss105 is probably the best feeling stock shafts I have EVER played. When you hit it pure it is orgasmic!

I just bought this set in an attempt to give myself a bit of a challenge. I already own a set of Di7 and I was surprised to see that I had absolutely no problem hitting these new clubs. The shaft(regular) feels softer than the ones on my Di7's(uniflex). I'm a bit curious on the difference between these two shafts and since i couldn't find any numbers on the web, i've mailed W/S and asked them for more stats.

I've only had them for a few days so I need to test them some more, but some differences I've noticed between the sets:

* The Ci9 shots go approximately 5 yards shorter. 2.5 yards would be expected due to different lofts.

* Easier to draw/fade. The talk about 'shaping your shots' was true. Good  feature if you do it on purpose. :)

* They feel softer than Di7.

* Wonderful feeling when you hit the sweetspot.

* Looks less plastic in real life than on photos.

Overall impression: I love them. :)

After a few hundred shots and analyzing Trackman data I see that the distance loss from Di7 to Ci9 is more like 7-8 yards  on average. The cause of this is that Ci9 shots get a higher launch angle and goes a few yards higher, with less roll as a result. The loft difference between the two sets are between 0.5 and 1 degrees. Most of the data analyzed comes from my 5, 7, and 9 irons.

The Di series is their distance iron....

Ci is more for control shaping etc.....

As stated the lofts are stronger ie Pw 47 Di   48.5 Ci  (Reliable info but don't bet the farm on the numbers)

I bought Di5's several years ago and they are just long as hell irons....Noticably longer when I huff and Puff before the shot...lol

Di5 will certainly shape shots as well...The Nano graphite UST shaft in these irons is terrific...

I am ready to move up into newer Staff irons this year, but I do not want to lose too much distance with my normal swings....

From experience who would recommend Ci  or Di -  and why - shaft info include in answer please...

Thanks

Bill

Just an FYI....the Ci9's and Di9 & Di11 all have the same strong lofts ie: 44* PW, 48* GW I've played all 3 and LOVED the Ci9's. The FST ss105 shafts in the Ci9 is one of the best "stock" shafts I've played. Plenty forgiving! Actually found the Ci9's less punishing on mishits than the other 2.

I picked up a set of W/S CI9's last fall and due to a surgery really didn't get a chance to hit them often till over the winter at a range. just started playing over the last month and I like them a lot, the shafts (FST 105s) are great and if I do my part I can repeat shot placement to within a yard or so. Can also shape the ball using Wilson Staff D25 balls. I was able to get them for 299 shipped free but I think deals are still out there on the web.

Same thing, half the price, and if you  are obsessed with the tag of "forged" the mizunos are but the wilsons are cast, and they feel exactly the same.

I've played forged irons for most of my life but have recently in the last 4 months started using the Ci9's...they feel like forged and the FST shafts are perfect for me as I'm 63 years old and need something a bit softer and lighter. Wilson Staff used to be the best irons in the 50's, 60's and 70's but fell off due to lack of investment in R&D; but now they are back and the best kept secret in irons.

I've played these for the last 2 or 3 years. They have strong lofts so they go pretty far, I'm getting mine weakened soon. They were very, very good for the price, I got mine for like 2 or 300 bucks 2 or 3 years ago. I definantly reccomend them. I also don't know if wilson fell off due to lack of investment. I was told it was because before the Internet, people bought clubs from a company like wilson who was big and we'll known to everybody. Now smaller, more specialized company's can start up and get their products known. So big companies like wilson and now Nike are now slightly less appealing. But idk I want around then.

    • @dennyjones posted a link to the May issue of the Michigan Golf Journal. This is a page from that issue:  
    • I have stools in my kitchen. It’s how I came up with the description of how the move feels.
    • Not sure there was a particularly awesome shot, but played in a neighborhood scramble today and had a natural eagle on the 18th hole. Hit a 245yd drive down the middle, hit a 210 5W onto the green to 12 ft and made the putt in front of 30 guys from the neighborhood yelling and talking trash from green side. Great hole for me. Only the 4th eagle I’ve ever had.    day overall was decent. The way I hit today was typical for me, not bad, not great.
    • This is bsically the Pelz method, yes?  I do similar, however I don't think I have enough separation between my 1/4 swing vs my 1/2 swing.  Mostly I get too much yardage out of my 1/4 swing.  I have a bit of tape with the yardages written on it on my club just below the grip.   Best feeling, once I shot the pin with my laser and it was 65, so... pulled my 52 degree which had 63 yards (for 1/ backswing) on it. One hit, one bounce, bingo.  I thought I had discovered the holy grail, but found out quickly, golf is hard. But I digress...
    • Out here in WA state I don't know that feeling anymore.  All the barstools have been hidden away for over a year...
