Wilson's Staff Model CB was designed around clean aesthetics that better players will appreciate.

Even with the proliferation of players-distance irons in the equipment space, better players don’t necessarily want a set of sticks packed with technology throughout the set. If you’re sitting at home nodding along, then Wilson’s Staff Model Blade and Staff Model CB could be in the wheelhouse.

Designed for the golfer who puts a premium on precision, workability, consistency and clean aesthetics (reduced offset and a minimalist look), the Staff Model Blade and Staff Model CB were actually designed together, which means they share several traits and features — even though one is a muscleback and the other a cavity-back.

For example, they are each forged from 8620 carbon steel, one of the softest materials available in the gear space, to deliver a premium feel at impact. They also share Wilson’s Fluid Feel hosel that removes discretionary mass from the lower section of the hosel and repurposes it in the lower section of the head, directly behind the impact location.

Extra mass was also added to the toe and works in combination with the Fluid Feel hosel to reposition the center of gravity (CG) right behind the middle of the hitting area. The mass shift should help alleviate the dreaded left miss better players don’t typically like to see by holding the face open on the downswing. Adding more material directly behind the strike zone should enhance feel at the same time.

“Throughout the development process, we engaged our Wilson Advisory Staff across the Tour so that we could deliver irons that will make them better shot shapers,” said Bob Thurman, global general manager of golf and VP of R&D at Wilson. “Three-time major winner Padraig Harrington is a prime example as he put the new Staff Model CB irons in play for the first time at the TimberTech Championship this past November and won by a compelling seven shots.”

Take a closer look at the face and you’ll find precision milling that, according to Wilson, “allows for longer ball-to-face contact resulting in more consistent spin and increased stopping power” with each shot.

Wilson’s Staff Model Blades ($1,199.99; 4-PW) and Staff Model CB irons ($1,199.99; 4-PW) will be available January 24 and come standard with True Temper Dynamic Gold Mid 115 shafts and Golf Pride Z grips (no-cord).
