I tried a lot of utility irons out about 18/24 months ago and for me the best performance, feel, workability and value was the Wilson Staff. It's still in my bag and will be for the foreseeable.
I I’ve hit most of the forged Wilson’s since the FG62’s were current, great bats! I’ve also had FG tour forged wedges in my bag for a long while (since 2014) and they are every bit as good as the mizzy mpt10’s they replaced.
I wanted the d9 forged this year but went with ZX5’s, the resale on Wilson stuff is also holding up well
What handicap do you have and how are you finding the ZX5s? I'm presuming you were fit for them?
I do not know where you are looking to buy them but I have seen them for £649 to £699
Currently 10.8, wouldn’t class myself as a good ball striker as such. My previous fittings have all been xp95 stiff so I kinda knew my specs so didn’t need a fitting.
I had an understanding of what shafts i wanted and found cross ref charts for Nippon/KBS/true temper online so picked my shafts based on that.
First impressions are awesome!!!! I went for the ZX5’s as I wanted forgiveness , really fancied zx7’s but wanted some help
