Wilson Golf introduces Raw, rusting version of FG Tour V6 irons

The Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 irons are a fantastic set of clubs. They're not the longest in the world, but they are remarkably consistent irons for better players, and they're packed with the right mix of confidence-inspiring technology for a more-discerning set of eyes over the ball.

We'll get the next evolution of the FG Tour VX line in the future, but right now, Wilson Staff is offering an iterative version of the FG Tour V6s with a new Raw version.

Scores of golfers love unfinished wedges, designed to rust up over time to offer a distinctive character and look. The concept has been a winner for the company on their PMP wedges. However, the look is rarely applied to irons. So, will golfers like it? We're not sure, but Wilson's putting out a limited number of these sets, and Wilson staffer Troy Merritt is planning to put them into play in PGA Tour events.

The copper badging on the back is pretty fantastic, and they gives the irons a distinct look. As the clubs rust up over time, like with a wedge, the marking (the actual term is "patina") will be distinct and not really have much of an impact on how the irons play. You can always work off the rust.

Of course, a golfer could choose to apply their own oil to the forged heads and slow down or alter the rusting process, but eventually, nature and science are going to win.

The Wilson Staff FG Tour V6 Raw irons will run $1,100 for a set, and they're available through Wilson's website and many of their retail distributors. Since these are considered custom-order irons, many shafts, including the standard-edition Dynamic Gold AMT shaft (a great pick), are available for no upcharge.
