Shoots in the 70s
Model Reviewed: Wilson 1200 GE Irons
Summary: These were my first set of real clubs, got them in high school, late 80's. Shot some great scores. Stopped playing for some years, then fell back in love with golf. Used some major brands after not using the GE's after high school. Found them in my parents basement and used them. They really are amazing. Not sure why, but I just throw darts at the greens with these. I switch to a major brand every now and again, play OK, then go back to the GE's and simply play better with them. New grips, now they are permanently in my bag. Sold my newer clubs on EBay. Of course I have newer driver/woods and two nice Vokey wedges but these irons are the best. And for those who say they don't spin, I'm sorry, but you probably can't spin a ball with Eye 2's. The GE's provide some serious backspin, that's why I can just fire away with them.
Summary: They do not cost much, but they are worth much more than what you pay. Ok, they don't have much spin, but it's what I require at my present level of golfing skill. Tried some other irons in that price range and the Wilsons win on every aspect. I love them and probably I won't get rid of them until I come to a one-digit handicap. Only one con: the grip are way too hard. I think that regripping them with Golf Prides or smg similar would make a difference.So far, they stay in the bag!

Summary: This was the first set of cavity backs I have ever owned..Bought them at a pro shop back in 89' for around 300 bucks and played with them until this year..09'...that is 20 years and had them regripped once back in 99'. Guys I just upgraded to the new Wilson di7's and they are just as amazing..they have great feel and the ball fust seems to pop off the face of the club and make a bee line for the target...Thanks Wilson for 20 years of fun, low scoring golf and heres to another 20 with my new di7's.
