We just got to take a look at the new Wilson Staff DI9 Irons. Wilson really did a nice job upgrading the popular DI7 iron from the previous year. At first glance the DI9 looks similar to the previous model but when you really start comparing you can tell the differences that have the company quite excited. The MOI of the iron is one of the largest in golf. Its 6 iron boasts a 2920 MOI while the nearest competitor is the Cobra S9 which has a 2790. When we gave this club a swing in our indoor facility it really felt soft coming off the face. The sales rep said this is the low durometer urethane medallion that is inside the face. More companies are starting to put these vibration dampening medallions in their irons and it really does make a difference into the softness of the shots coming off the face. I hope this is a trend that continues! The iron continues to have the FatShaft technology which is unique to Wilson. The shaft does provide a little more stability at impact. The price of these irons is the same as last year at $549.95 for a set on a steel shaft. It is a great price compared to many other irons for the similar golfer. I have a feeling this iron will make some noise in the Hot List for 2009.
