We can all agree golf is hard enough, so if there’s ever a way to make it easier, then we should jump at it. When you mishit a shot, you want to be able to maintain good distance, but you also want an iron that will feel great on those you do hit from the middle.

Step forward: The new Wilson Dynapower Forged irons. Not only do these feel great, but as a player’s distance iron, they are forgiving, consistent and deliver great distance. 

These really do tick a lot of boxes. In fact, we think they tick six boxes very well in particular. Here are the top six reasons we think you should be giving these a shot in 2024. 

If you’d rather watch me explain why I think these irons are such a great option, then you can watch that below. If you want to read about them, then keep scrolling…

Hey, Good Looking! 

Looks are always important and the Wilson Dynapower Forged irons will certainly catch your eye. These are clean, shiny and look brilliant in your bag. The badge on the back of these looks top quality, while they also are stunning behind the ball. They don’t scream game improvement iron at you, as the shape is easy on the eye, with a topline that is very appealing. The offset is subtle and these have a gentle progression into the longer irons to make them easier to hit. All in all, they are great to look at.

These sound great

If you have hit a forged iron before you will know there is no better feeling. To have a forged iron that is packed full of tech and forgiveness is quite the combination. This iron feels solid and explosive off the face even on mishits. The acoustics are also solid and crisp on the ear and when you middle one it fizzes off the face. This all adds to a very enjoyable iron to hit.

Easy does it

Behind every great iron is great technology. Here is what makes the Dynapower Forged iron so easy to hit. 

It is made from 8620 carbon steel, which has been meticulously crafted and rigorously tested using an advanced Wilson Golf AI technology system. This system incorporates a new Variable Face Thickness to ensure faster ball speeds across the clubface. The Enhanced Power Hole Technology construction which applies to 4-7 irons only, combines with the Variable Face Thickness to deliver maximum distance.

This is also a high MOI (moment of inertia) construction which down to a low centre of gravity and the redistribution of weight towards the toe which results in a more forgiving, higher launching with impressive stopping power on the greens.

Get closer to the pin, more often

The standout here when playing these irons is consistency, especially on mishits. These irons are great at maintaining distance which will get you closer to the hole no matter if you catch it on the toe or the heel, distance is easily maintained and sometimes gained. The dispersion from shorter and longer distances are all very impressive and the consistency in distance and dispersion is brilliant. If you do push one out right or turn one over left, you will find the distances are close in comparison even when you middle one. If you can get yourself pin high more often, you’re going to shoot better scores. These irons will help you do exactly that.

Any shot is possible

If you are a player who likes to shape the ball, or you’re someone who often needs to shape the ball, then these will offer you plenty of workability.

It is easy to get the ball in the air with these irons but I was amazed at how easy they are to shape. Sometimes with irons which have a high MOI it can be harder to shape but it was no problem for me with the Wilson Dynapower Forged. I could hit it high, low, with a draw, with a fade. These really are fun irons to hit. 

They won’t break the bank

You’re probably thinking that all this technology and top performance is going to come with a hefty price tag. Well, compared to some other options, that really isn’t the case. These come in at just £900 RRP, but you can find them slightly cheaper than that. To us, that’s a bargain. So, with the looks, feel, technology, consistency, playability, and price you have an incredible set of irons which are going to make golf easier for you. And that’s what we all want, isn’t it?
