Yesterday Wilson Staff announced the launch of a new iron called the Wilson Staff C200. In Wilson Staff vocabulary, “C” stands for crossover (=distance + accuracy). I found 2 major innovations in the new Wilson Staff irons: patent-pending FLX Face Technology and Power Holes.
FLX Face technology minimizes the contact points between the body and thin face. In fact, 76% of the thin face is actually free from the body of the iron, allowing for maximized face flex upon impact. These voids, known as Power Holes, are literal holes that go completely through the head and provide the space for the face to flex. They are then filled with a TE031 Urethane.
Michael Vrska, Global Director of Golf Innovation for Wilson Labs said: ““We knew we wanted to create a completely new club – one with easy-to-understand, visible technology. ”
The C200 line features will be available for purchase on January 15.
I don’t want to be a party pooper, but I found similar “hole” in Adams Blue Iron and in Lynx Black Cat irons as well.
