Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 Irons Review: You need to know
Wilson say the C300 Forged is the first to incorporate power hole technology in an 8620 carbon steel iron head. It means you get the same feel as Wilson’s excellent tour level FG Tour V6, but with extra ball speed and additional playability. Five power holes in a double row on the sole increase face flex.

Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 Irons Review: We say
Right on the fence between a better player and game improvement iron, the C300 could easily slip into either category. The C300 Forged came about, because golfers loved the look and feel of Wilson’s FG Tour V6 (which Padraig Harrington plays) but felt a bit intimidated by the tiny head size. Wilson’s next step up the ladder were the cast C200s, which were miles away from everything golfers loved about the V6. Simon was the C300s biggest fan, loving how Wilson’s engineers have combined so much tech within a forged head. We’ve tested the C300s twice now, on both occasions it’s not ripped up any trees in terms of ball speed or carry distance, but we still love its marriage of forged head with oodles of tech.

Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 Irons Review: Verdict
Compared to other players distance irons, the C300 is the only one that can boast of a full forged head, both the P790 (forged faces only) and AP3 (not forged) can’t. Compared to the Wilson FG Tour V6, C300 was four yards longer through the air, which we reckon makes it attractive to anyone who loved the V6 but hankered after extra ball speed protection and forgiveness. A decent shout for golfers looking for an excellent but sensibly priced crossover (irons that sit between better player and game improvement categories) iron.
