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.

    • Played the weekly clubtournament yesterday: A stableford tournament from the yellows (6300 yards, Rated 72,7, slope 147) Shot 86 (36 stableford points). A pretty good round, but it was far from a perfect round.  Positives: - No lost balls (despite hitting one in the creek on 8 (found it, but had to take the penalty and a drop there) - Played solid through the 2 hardest stretches on the course. Hole 5-7 (+1) and hole 13-14 (E) - Birdie on the tough 13 (390 yards par 4 playing into wind  with a narrow teeshot and the approach playing 15 yards downhill) after a good drive (275 yards) into the wind to the right side of the fairway and a perfect soft AW from 120 that landed a foot short of the pin and jumped a couple of feet back to 3 feet. That shot looked like it was going in. - Only hit 3/13 fairways, but none of the missed fairways was by more than 5 yards and only one cost me a shot (on 16 where I had to chip it back to the fairway). So all my misses were pretty much in the right places.  - Hit 8 greens (14 nGIRs). Good, but not great.  - The round took my index south of 10,0, so new my new index is now 9,9 Negatives:  - The par 3s - shot +7 on the 5 par 3s, which is the worst I've done so far this season. Managed to shoot a 5 on hole 4 (205 yards into wind yesterday) without using my putter and without penalties. Duffed the teeshot 130 yards short and a little bit right, shanked the next shot into the left greenside bunker, hit the first bunkershot fat and still found my self in the sand, thinned the next bunkershot and flew it over the green and holed the 15 yards chip from there for a 5 and 0 stableford points. To a lot of amusement for everyone in my flight. The 6 i shot on hole 8 (180 yards uphill with wind from behind and left) was quite forgettable: Pulled my 8'iron slightly and flew it over the green right into the creek there, penalty drop, chipped it to 15 feet from there and needed 3 putts to hole it (found the ball in the creek(Y) ).  - Struggled with the speed on a 15 footer (sent it 6 feet past on 8 ) and 40 footer (left it 12 feet short on 14) , which I normally don't struggle with. Putting was good apart from those 2 and were the only 3-putts I made. On both those putts it felt wrong in the backswing and I still didn't abort the swing. Need to work on that.  33 putts total is not great, but is acceptable with the chances I gave myself on the greens. - A little inconsistant with my longer chips, needs to get them a little closer. This is a part of the game I have been very good at lately and this was not my best round around the greens. Only 2 1-putts after chipping and one holeout. Should do better.   
    • After a decent round yesterday i finally reached goal number 1 this season: HCP-index: 9,9.  Now let's keep it there or lower. 
    • You really need to call out your cheating partner.  Never allow it to continue.  Otherwise you will either get bitter about it or refuse to play with him.
    • Or wager against them, but watch them closely and play strict rules.  After all, their handicaps are probably treating their concessions as sunk. Three players in my club's match play qualifier were DQ'd for taking gimmes during the qualifier.  Those are a no-no when it's medal play for a match play qualifier. 
    • Parred the first hole at an away course today to make my away course composite even par (3 birdies 3 bogeys)
