    Love the shape of the new Wilson line and I actually think they look the best of the bunch. I bet these are long. These are on the must hit list.

    Don't think I could get into those, they are seriously huge, and the contrast in the cavity makes them look even huger. But they are smart looking - Wilson Staff has always had a knack for designing awesome irons, and I'm sure these will be great for the right player, it's just not me.

    These look great, I cant wait to hit them!! Interesting shaft choice after hearing rumor that Matrix is canceling their Program line for irons.

    Ok...now these look appealing to my eye. Though I'm not a fan of graphite in irons, these work for me. The Matrix shafts would probably make this game improvement iron more effective for the higher handicap golfer.

    While that may be the case with these irons, graphite shafts definitely do not mean game improvement anymore. There are a number of tour players using graphite iron shafts now including Kuchar, Sneds, Ernie Els and more.

    Those are graphite shafts correct? I like the design but have never been a fan of graphite on my irons.

    Don't sleep on these shafts. Just don't. I along with quite a few other THPers who hit the D100s at the THP Outing and Demo Day this year (Same shaft - Matrix Studio) were quite pleasantly surprised with how these feel and perform. Graphite has come a long way.
