www.wil­son.com Avail­abil­ity: 3-PW (4-PW) Stock shaft: True Tem­per Dy­namic Gold AMT

7i loft/length: 35° / 37.25”

TECH: 20g of tung­sten weight­ing in the 3-7 iron low­ers the CG and in­creases launch with­out in­creas­ing

spin, says Wil­son.

WE SAY: The V6 throws up a real co­nun­drum, as its head size is one of the small­est on test. It’s nat­u­ral to ex­pect a smaller head to be less for­giv­ing, but with one of the largest and deep­est cav­ity backs in the cat­e­gory, and plenty of tung­sten toe and heel weight­ing to boot, we won­dered if the V6 could make up for its lack of size by turn­ing in a strong per­for­mance. It does, as it cer­tainly didn’t feel un­for­giv­ing, and with our test pro post­ing a ball speed 1.5mph over the av­er­age and car­ry­ing shots with a 7-iron 1.5 yards fur­ther than av­er­age (with a higher loft) it speaks vol­umes about the V6s.

VER­DICT: If you look at the V6s in the cold light of day, they’re a re­ally de­cent set of forged irons, with just enough tech to aid, not pun­ish your en­joy­ment of the game.
