Our take: Wilson’s super-game-improvement irons “live up to the name,” says one tester. “These things launch into the stratosphere. They’re effortless.” If the sight of an extra-wide sole at address gives you some much-needed confidence, you’ll love the look of the Launch Pad, which boasts a sole design that gets progressively wider as the clubs get longer, enabling them to essentially “float” above the turf to help eliminate embarrassing chunks and unintentional divot-digging.

The details: Distance, forgiveness and confidence are the name of the game when it comes to these easy-to-hit irons. A lightweight design, super-thin face and hollow construction combine to make generating clubhead speed a cinch, while the irons’ wide soles encourage consistency by helping you to get the club under the ball at impact, thereby generating higher-launching shots. To complete the package, mid-size grips provide both comfort and enhanced feel.
