  1. Man o Man Tom. I convinced myself the 771s were the way to go, using the logic “pick the most GI club you can stand to look at.” And to be clear, I don’t have any issue with the look of the 771 (wish it had less offset… and that’s being picky). Then I do my research and everyone is raving about the 575 head (and I can see why). I”m a 7HC and 60 years old —so I’m drawn to your thought that the 565s may be the way to go but….. man those 575s look good. Here you go: I’m replacing Miura CB 57s because I’ve had them for a few years and they’re not very forgiving. While I know the 575s are compact, it’s all relative. How do they compare to the CB57 in terms of size and forgiveness? I don’t want to make a lateral move. How dramatic would you say the differences are between the 575 MMC CB and your 565 model? Thanks…. Going to see Mr. Cicero.

    • TOM

      In all honesty the 575s are the LEAST forgiving irons in my design line, by far. That’s because they are quite compact and the cavity version has a quite shallow cavity depth. Add that together and the MOI of the 575’s is the lowest of all the irons. If you are drawn to a forging, that means the better choice by far for you as a 7 would be the 565’s. They’re a very low traditional offset as well and the head size is really not huge, though definitely larger than the 575’s. But I do have to add that if a high level of off center hit forgiveness is really high on your list, then you won’t find any forging come close to the forgiveness of the 771’s.

      Hope this helps and thanks so much for your interest,

  2. Hi Tom
    Do you offer combo sets? CB for longer clubs and MB for shorter clubs…
    If so, what would a set like this generally cost?

    • Ramiro

      Yes, starting in 2002 with the original 550C and 550M and followed by the 555C and 555M and then followed by the 575MMC and 575M, we have always made our forged player’s irons so they could be picked and fit to the golfer in any type of mix and match desired between the cavity and muscleback versions. The 575 cavity is available in #3 to AW, the 575 muscleback in #5 to AW so the split between the two can be made anywhere from the 5 iron on down, as the golfer desires.

      We do not establish the retail pricing for any of our club models as custom fit and custom built for golfers. All final retail pricing is determined by the custom clubmaker who fits and builds the clubs for the golfer. We are simply the engineering and designers of the clubheads, shafts and grips that I design and we wholesale these designs as components to the custom clubmakers who then do the fitting and custom building for the golfers. You will need to contact the clubmaker in your area to inquire about his pricing. While we have offered recommended pricing as a guideline, by law we cannot compel them to sell the custom fit Wishon clubs for any specific price. That’s their decision. To find a clubmaker that you may contact to inquire about services and pricing, go to the FIND A CLUBFITTER search tool link found on the home page of wishongolf.com. Input your location and the clubmakers closest to your location will be displayed with their contact information. Thanks very much for your interest,

  3. hi,
    I am about to buy a new set of irons: Tom Wishon 575 MMC Forged.

    They suggest me a “NovaTech BTR 130g R 38 inch on 6 299 cpm” shaft with it. I know it is all depending on the player also, but does that sound like a good option to you? (i haven’t got a clue) or do better try out other shafts? (for instance the KBS C-Taper Lite)

    • ERIC

      I am sorry but you have to realize that there is no possible way we can advise you on a shaft without a LOT more information about your swing characteristics and your past experience and perceptions of other shafts you have played. Even from that point there can be many shaft models that could all end up being just fine for you and your swing and preferences for shaft feel and shot shape. There is no such thing as one shaft working better with a specific clubhead design. The shaft is always fit to the golfer’s swing characteristics of clubhead speed + downswing tempo + point of release and then finalized by feedback from the golfer with regard to whether he likes the bending feel and the shape of the shots hit with the irons with the shaft. And when it comes to iron shafts, there is always more room for error than there is with shafts in a driver and the woods. With irons, the shaft does not bend nearly as much in the swing as it will with the longer length woods. So this all means that there can and will be a lot more possible iron shaft options for a player to be happy with than when shaft fitting in the woods. If you are working with a good, experienced clubfitter, you will be just fine. But you should always ask him to shaft up one iron for you to hit once he makes his recommendation so you get the chance to offer feedback before the whole set is done.

  4. Hi Tom,

    Do you still have a fitting partner in the Dublin Ireland area?
    The 575 Irons look superb and would be ideal for links golf.

    BH.

    • Barry

      Thanks very much for your interest and your comments about the 575s ! The best suggestion and recommendation I can give you for a clubfitter in reasonable proximity to the Dublin area would be Derek McGrath (The Golf Studio) at Celbridge Driving Range, Co Kildare.
      His contact number is 00353 087 9145188. Hope this works out for you !!!

  5. Hi, I live in Sweden and have found a nice, cheap set of 575 mmc 5-pw.
    My question is if there is piratecopies of those clubs?

    Regards
    Jörgen

    • Jorgen

      I do not think this would be a pirate copy of the 575MMC iron heads. Wishon Golf is much too small and not nearly as valuable as the big companies so there is just no way anyone would spend the money to make counterfeit copies of anything I design. Golf club copies only happen to big companies who have a very big marketing campaign to create demand for their products. Besides, we have a lot of Swedish customers so my head models have been all around Sweden for a lot of years now. I believe with certainty that this set is genuine.

      TOM

  6. Tom, how long do you think these irons will be in production and what do you see coming out in your future as far as the muscle backs you create. I have been playing the 550m irons ever since they came out. They are by far the best golf clubs i have ever played and have been the only clubs i have never changed in my bag. I have been extremely reluctant to change to the new grooves and new iron design you have now but because I compete I must confirm. What changes am I expected to see going from the 550m to the 575 muscle back?

    • Pascal

      The 575 in both versions are going to stay in the line through all of 2018, I can say with about 99% surety. Maybe I might do a new forging for 2019 since that would be about the right number of years for having kept the 575’s given how long we kept the 555’s and 550’s before that. What makes it tough to change a forged iron model is the (gulp) forging die costs of $6000 per head number. 3-AW in one set and 5-AW in the other set is 16 times $6K for a c o o l $100G’s just to do a new pair of forged iron models. So you see why I like to keep the models as long as possible. 575 muscle back is smaller in head size than the 550M, most definitely. That’s the looks side of it. Impact feel is really so close that I can’t find anyone who honestly can tell a difference. if anything, we have had people swear the 575s are more solid feeling but I think of that as wishful thinking after buying a new model ! Outside of the size, there’s really no difference in my mind. Thanks so very much for your interest and I can imagine you have hit a few shots with the 550’s since you still have them ! My son still plays with his 550M’s as well.

  7. I am finding it hard to find consent weight 0.370 steel shafts, can you simply use a shim and 0.355 shafts?

    • TJ

      Constant weight 0.370 iron shafts is a very rare animal. The whole reason a 0.370″ parallel tip construction was designed was to reduce the number of SKUs that a golf company would have to buy and stock to assemble sets of irons. So the whole deal was to only have one shaft from which all the irons could be assembled. In doing that, you always will have descending weight in a conventional incremental length set. All of our products are now distributed world wide by Diamond Golf International – 1-844-552-3437 (GMT) and they also stock shims and a small variety of 0.355 taper tip iron shafts.

      Thanks very much,
      TOM

    • how would you then make each of the clubs feel the same. This seems to work on the oppose end of the spectrum of say the DG AMT shafts.

      The stocking issue does make sense, would you say ether constant weight or descending weight is a better way to assemble clubs? I assume constant weight but I could be wrong as I have only built with 0.355 shafts thus far.

    • TJ
      The 0.370 and 0.335 parallel tip shaft construction was invented in 1971 by True Temper. Since that time hundreds of millions of golf clubs have been built and sold and played with parallel tip shafts with no issues. You’re thinking more about this than you should. The drop in shaft weight down through the set is offset and negated by the fact that when the clubs are all made to the same swingweight, the gradual drop in shaft weight means the head weights have to get a little more heavy in progression. That all adds up to make the final assembled clubs come out just fine in terms of their graduation of total weight progressively upward by 1/4 oz increments from low to high, the same as how the total weight progression is in a set made with 0.355 constant weight taper tip shafts.

      Keep in mind that not all taper tip shafts are constant weight. Many 0.355 taper tip iron shafts are made from a 0.370 blank, tipped progressively and then the tip end is swaged down to the 0,355 tapered shape. Thus there are a good number of 0.355 taper tip iron shafts that drop in weight as more is trimmed off the shaft. There is no better with respect to the tip construction. There is only the matter of whether the weight, flex, bend profile of a shaft properly fit the golfer’s clubhead speed + downswing tempo + point of release + any bending feel preference the golfer may have. And when it comes to fitting golfers, there are tons more shaft fitting options that exist within all of the 0.370 tip shafts by far than exist in the 0.355 construction.

    • Thanks for the insight Tom Have a great day

  8. Hi Tom,

    I ordered heads for 4-7 cavity back of the 575 and 8-PW muscle back as well. Can you advise if I will need .370 shafts for these? I was going to use Dynamic Gold S300 AMT but want to make sure I buy the correct shaft either .355 or .370. I saw the options for the clubs and wanted to get a correct answer. Thanks

    • Matzi
      Thank you very much for your order and your interest in our design work. We appreciate that very much. All of my iron and wedge models are manufactured with a 0.370″ parallel bore to accept 0.370 parallel tip shafts. I never design irons or wedges with any other bore diameter because the number of options for 0.370 parallel tip iron shafts is so much greater for a wider range of custom fitting options for golfers.

      Thanks again,
      TOM

    • Hi Tom,

      Received the irons and they look great. I see bore instructions for irons and describes weights within the hosel. Is that necessary or can I simply put some epoxy in the hosel and install the shaft?

    • MATZI
      All of my head models are made with the hosel weight bore located at the bottom of the shafting bore. The purpose is to allow the clubmaker to add weight when needed to establish the final swingweight of the clubs. Because we tout custom fitting so much, this means that my head models may be built with a very wide range of different shaft weights and at different lengths. Add to that the custom fitting need for different golfers to have different swingweights in their sets and you see the reason there is a need to be able to customize the weight to fit the golfer. You do NOT NOT NOT want to build golf clubs and ignore the swingweight !!!!!!!! Diamond Golf also offers the different weight plugs in increments of 2g, 4g, 6g, 9g which are epoxied down into the weight bore before the shaft is epoxied into the hosel bore.

    • I want to give compliments to Mr. Tom, previously im using AP2 714, Yamaha Inpress RMX. Juz last week i received a used Wishon 575MMC with S300 shaft (bought from my friend).. These irons blown me away.. Its so good. Then i made myself clear, sold already both my 2 clubs.

      Congratss Mr. Tom

    • Thank you VERY MUCH for taking the time to come to our site and tell us how much you like the new 575MMC forged irons !! We’re very pleased to hear that you are happy with the new irons !!

  9. Hi Tom,

    I met with Fred Schaper last Friday, 11/18, to hit the clubs he made me for the first time under his supervision. Those 575 MMC Forged CB heads are absolutely beautiful! As I worked my way from approach wedge down through 6-iron, the smile on my face just kept getting bigger and bigger. I had high expectations as to how they would look and perform based on your, and Fred’s, reputation, but, these irons exceeded those high expectations. Fred also made me a 56* PCF Micro Tour wedge which has quickly become the best wedge I’ve ever played in my 29 years playing golf.

    The irons feel awesome, and the Rifle shafts were selected and installed so skillfully, that I felt I had to hardly swing at all to get the ball to launch high & true at my target. I was amazed that the dispersion was so tight!

    During the same session last week, Fred fit me for the 919THI driver, which I hope to get by the end of this week.

    I wanted to make sure you knew about how great my experience was working with Fred and thank you again for designing and manufacturing such a great product.

    All the best,
    Vince Schiavo

    • Thanks very much Vince for letting us know how well the work with Fred has been going for you !! Never do I ever have anything but the utmost confidence for a positive outcome in the fitting when I know that the golfer is going to work with Fred Schaper. Because he is everything that a good clubmaker/clubfitter should be. Thanks so much again for your interest and your support of what we try to do !!

      TOM

  10. Hi Again Tom,

    I had my fitting for irons yesterday with Fred Schaper from Perfect Lies Golf. He said to say hello, by the way. I was fit into the 575MMC Forged CB irons. They felt great and the dispersion was very manageable. Fred is incredibly knowledgeable and spent hours with me going through the different options/combinations of shafts and heads. We went with the Rifle frequency balanced shafts. That head/shaft combination was awesome. I’m so looking forward to playing them and want to thank you for designing/building such a great product.

    Regards,
    Vince

    • Thanks very much for letting me know you met and worked with Fred ! I knew that you would be impressed with his approach and his thoroughness in his fitting work. I am pleased to hear that you are happy with the experience and that you look forward to the clubs !! Play well, have fun and the very best to you in this great game !! Thanks so much or your interest and your support of professional level custom clubfitting !

      TOM

  11. Hi Tom. First of all, thank you for all your contributions to the golf industry. You have been a constant reliable source dependable information since I first started club making. A quick question for you.. how do the 575 work in a combo set with the 565? Are there certain combos you’ve found effective or others that don’t work? How would you suggest set make up? All the best. Many thanks, Tristan.

    • TRISTAN
      Thanks very much for your kind words of recognition. That’s very nice of you to say that and I do appreciate it very much.

      The only thing that might take some getting used to in a combo between the 575 and 565 is the size difference between the two models. The 575 is very compact and on the smaller size in terms of overall profile shape while the 565 is ever so slightly larger so the back cavity machining can create a high MOI for the heads. But my guess is you’d want to use the 565 in the lower lofts and then go with the 575’s in the higher lofts. BY the time you get to the 575 #8 iron, the natural shape change that happens with the 8 iron on down makes the head look a little bit larger so it might not be much of a visual difference to get used to. Performance wise there is no issue at all with combining these two models in one set makeup.

      TOM

  12. Tom can you tell me on an off centre hit how much loss would there be on the muscle back 575 versus the cavity back. I thought you mentioned that the area of the iron was so small that it would not make that much of an impact unless the iron was larger. I have the mizuno hi fl 3 and 4 and am looking to put the 5 to gap 575mb into the set, I was playing the mp32 5 to wedge and really liked them but when I received them they were all over the map as far as lie,they were supposed to be 2 degrees flat. I would like the 5 and 6 to really get up there and was wondering if the cavity back would make it fly higher. the mp32’s had 5.0 rifles in them and the 5 and 6 irons flew pretty high. I’m going to see ross beebe in Chilliwack and was thinking of areo teck shafts but read some reviews on yours that were pretty good. Do you have shafts similar to the 5.0 Thanks Rob Huget P.S I fly the 8 iron between 145 and 150. Driver swing speed is between 96 and 98 mph

    • ROB

      With everything else being equal in the two irons, there should not be any loss of distance for an ON CENTER HIT between the 575MMC cavity back and muscle back versions. There will be a distance difference for OFF center hits though because the cavity back has a higher MOI than does the muscleback for each same head number in the sets. And may I add, you are doing the right thing in your area to work with Ross. I’ve known him personally for quite a few years in this side of the golf equipment business, and I can assure you that he’s very experienced and he definitely knows what he is doing.

      Among our shafts, the one that is most similar to the Rifle 5.0 would be the S2S Stepless R with +1/2″ more tip trim than normal. Thanks for mentioning you heard my shafts are pretty decent. I have been deeply involved in shaft fitting and design since 1991 and was the first person to ever publish full length stiffness measurements on a large population of shafts as a first means for custom clubmakers to be able to make much more pertinent shaft to shaft comparisons for being able to make better fitting decisions. Thanks much for your interest,
      TOM

  13. Hey Tom I’ve been interested in Bryson dechambeaus club set up for a while now not just the Single Length but the extremely upright lie angles. I’m pretty sure he’s playing his clubs at 73 degrees now. Anyways I was wondering if it’s even possible to bend a standard forged carbon steel head that much without breaking? I’d assume 10 degrees is way too much but I figured I’d ask you to see if you think it’s even possible. I’d like to build a test club at that spec and have access to a bending machine but don’t want to risk breaking an old club if u think it’s not possible. I have my lob wedge at 4 degrees up and my other clubs standard. I love chipping and hitting pitch shots with an upright club.
    Anyways do u think it’s possible?

  14. Do these irons have a hot face that can give you a inconsistent lenght?

    • Patrik:

      No, we have never had any reports of inconsistent distance with the 575MMC forged irons, and we’ve never seen that in any of the development testing. The model has been available for over 5 years so if there were any inconsistency issues with the design, we would have heard about it. They are too small of a head in terms of compact blade size for there to ever have a chance for the faces to react differently.

      TOM

    • Thanks for the answer.

      Ok then I know, I’m currently choosing between the 565 and 575. How about the 565, do thesehave a hot face that cn generate inconsistences in lenght?

    • PATRIK

      While the 565’s have not been available for all that long since we intro’d them in the spring, we just have never gotten any comments, not even one, about any of our forged iron models ever showing any type of sudden jump in distance on a shot. I have been in serious clubhead R&D and design work for 31 yrs. That has included a lot of very serious in depth study of the physics of impact along with the principles of metallurgy as it relates to clubhead production and performance.

      From that I strongly feel that there is no such thing as the clubhead itself being able to cause anything in the way of what has been termed a “hot spot”. I feel from all my work that this is a myth – there are so many variables exist for grass or moisture or changes in the face blasting of irons being the cause of one shot flying farther than another. Hot spots just can;t exist from a science standpoint.

      TOM

    • Ok thanks a lot for the answer. how is the sole comparison between the 575 mmc and 565 mc? Is the leading edge soft on any of them? Will you create a new version of the 575 in a near future?

    • Patrik
      Both of the models have a full radius sole from face to back with a rounded leading edge. I always do that on any forged iron I design because it just is a better way to design the sole for better players. The 565 sole is very slightly wider than the 575 because the 565 has such a deep, large back cavity. So with that much weight removed to create the higher MOI in the 565, two things in the design have to go with that – a slightly larger overall head size and a very slightly wider sole. But not like a game improvement iron like you see from so many of the other companies.

      I doubt that a new forging is in the works coming soon. Forging dies are very expensive to pay for to create a new forged iron set. So we need to get as many years from a new forged iron model as we can to help defray the cost of development. And in reality, when it comes to a forged carbon steel iron, there is no new technology that can ever be introduced or discovered. Once we developed the 5 step forging process and the CNC machining of the entire back of the head, nothing else is out there to be discovered with regard to a one piece forged carbon steel iron. So all new forged carbon steel one piece iron designs will forever just be a matter of pushing the metal around the back of the head to different positions and changing the profile shape – cosmetic things only.

      TOM

    • Hi Tom,

      Thanks a lot for taking your time to answer me, I will most probably go on the 575 but we’ll see tomorrow. I will have the opportunity to see them both tomorrow.

      Thanks for being so kind!

      Best regards
      Patrik

    • Patrik

      Seeing them both side by side is really the best way and only way to make a good decision about the model. Good luck and the very best to you in this great game !

  15. 575 MB puts PXG0311 and X2 Hot Pro TP to shame

    We have had the pleasure of showcasing the 575 iron on many occasions and have built several sets. We recently were asked to compare the PXG 0311 to the 575 and another MB head, we put the PXG head into our fitting set so they could try any of the performance shafts we carry.

    They wound up comparing the KBS C Taper, RIfle, Accra 90i Tour weight, and UST Recoil TSPX 808 F4, all at the same exact 308 CPM, which we arrived at for there full shaft flex of 5.3 after about an hour fitting them and a swing weight of D4. They were a 2 handicap a phenominal ball striker, consistant precise swing, very methodic.

    About an hour and a half into the fitting, they commented that they were only getting 168-176 yds from there PXG with our shafts, as we were hitting the 575MB and getting 176 to 184 with Toms head, they were getting a little upset because the 575 was outperforming the PXG with every shaft comparison. Again commenting that our shafts werent performing. SO I invited him to pull out his 5 iron and try it as I was certain it was the balls on the range and not our shafts causing the deficeincy of distance in the PXG’s.

    Out came the 5 iron and 10 strikes later the best ball had only reached 186, so I pointed out again, that the difference in performance was only the balls, and not our shafts as he alledged. Now remember, the PXG is 28 degrees, the 575 is 30 degrees, that gives the PXG a 10 yard advantage, which wasnt the case at all,the 575’s flat outperformed his PXG’s. This wasnt the first time we had this result either, heres the second best story of the 575 being the triumphant head.

    Last season we worked with a player who was trying to get on the Web.com tour, he came to us with new Callaway Driver, Mini driver, hybrids and a set of X2 Hot Pro TP heads he had. We put our faz-fit adapters into all of his heads as he came to us for shafts only. During the fitting, once he determined the shaft he liked which was the UST Recoil TSPX, 808 F4. He looked at me and said, love the shaft, the head IM just not feeling it, what do you have? SO I offered up the 575 as a great head but 3 degrees higher loft than his, giving the Callaway a 15 yard advantage.

    First strike with the 575MB delivered 10 yards more distance than he got with the Callaway, he looked at us shocked and said what is this? We explained, the finest MB blade on the market. He was so blown away by the performance of the 575 he threw the Callaways in the garbage and bought a full set from us, Tom helped us dramaticly with this set as he played an 8* Gap.

    I have to admit we keep the 6 iron head that we had put in our fitting set on the top shelf above one of our benches as our trophy. Anyone that can throw a full set of iron heads away that are brand new into the garbage and buy a full set from us, based on 1 thing, PERFORMANCE, which is second to none with the 575MB

    Tom this head is a complete home run, and our customers always comment, that it is surprisingly forgiving for a MB blade. Our customers come to us for performance and the precision builds and fittings we do, you make our job easy providing such incredibly playable heads that have a distinct feel, and is second to none. We work in the NY Metro area, where there are a lot of Golf Snobs and money is no object. For us it is a wonderful feeling to be able to give a customer a set of fully customized clubs at a price that is more than reasonable, and in most cases less than what a junk set of OEM clubs at the local Big Box store cost, but best of all we know we are providing the finest quality golf club in the world

    Tom thank you for all the great designs and providing some of the most playable heads in the industry, with such rich feel to the heads, using your heads makes our job easy.

    SIncerely

    All of us at Perfect Lies Golf

  16. Hi Tom:

    I am a proud owner of a ser of 575. I had this configuration:
    PW + 52/56/60 wedges.
    Now I have includes the 575 GW that has 50º loft. Now I wonder if I should change the rest of my wedges. I have to option:

    1. Keep my wedges and the set would be: PW (46), GW (50) + 56 and 60

    2. Change my wedges and go for: PW (46), GW (50) + 54 and 58

    What do you think is the best configuration in term of versatility and gapping distance.

    Thank you very much in advance for your help.

    BR

    Luis

    • Luis

      Only you can know whether the lower lofts of 54/58 would be better or not better than the higher lofts of 56/60. Much of that decision has to be made on the basis of the golf courses you play the most. If you play courses with smaller greens, with greens that are raised up higher than the fairway area leading to it, with bunkers that are deeper and require the shot to get up quickly, with faster greens – these are all indicators to say that using the higher loft combination would be better. On the other hand if you play courses with larger greens, with greens that are usually on the same level as the fairways, with shallow bunkers – these are indicators that the lower loft combination of SW and LW might be better. Loft on the wedges is a matter of the course design more than it has anything to do with the golfer or the other wedges and irons leading up to the SW and LW.

      Hope this helps and thanks very much for your support and interest !!!

  17. I went and saw Gary Asano on a recent trip to Hawaii to get fitted for some 771csi clubs. After a session on the driving range and an in depth chat about what I wanted out of my game in the future I decided to purchase the Wishon 575mmc. With my swing speed we decided stiff KBS Tour shafts would be the best match for me. I also got fitted for a Wishon putter, the S2R-3 ended up being my choice of the S2R range. Unfortunately the clubs couldn’t be completed before I left Hawaii but I’m looking forward to a delivery in the next few weeks and will post my thoughts here in the future. I must however say the whole club fitting process was great and I learnt a lot. Gary is a fantastic bloke so if your in Ohau get in touch with him, you wont be disappointed

  18. Hi Tom,

    I have just been to see Carla White in Lowton, England. I’m interested in getting a combo set of 575’s 4-6cb & 7-gw in mc with possibly something a bit more forgiving in the 4 iron. (Any recommendations) After seeing the CB in 6 iron up close I can tell you they are beautiful. After hitting it I fell in love. The feel even with the range balls was solid but that butter feeling when you flush one out of the middle was awesome.

    I’m not sure when Carla will send you my swing info but really looking forward to the next step.

    Keep up the good work and I will be telling everyone I come across how great your irons are.

    Regards, Rick

    • Thanks so much Rick for taking the time to dig us up and write – and especially for your interest in fitting and our models. Once I began to realize how to use CNC machining to carve the entire back design into a forged iron about 8 yrs ago, it has been a lot of fun to keep using the process to further develop models that can combine the solid feel of a bar forging with enough forgiveness too – that doesn’t always happen with forgings when they are fully forged with no machining. But it’s also been fun to experiment with the different surface finishes through machining to create the machined lines appearances that I too am prejudiced to say I think it makes the head look really nice. Also nice to hear you are working with Carla – she and I go back a few years from some of my visits over the pond to teach clubfitting and equipment performance to British pros through the PGA of the UK at their HQ at the Belfry.

      Thanks so much, really, and the very best to you in this great game. I’ll probably have your fitting info from Carla to respond about in the next day or two.

    • Hi Tom,

      No thank you for all the knowledge you have shared on your website. As a mechical designer I find everything on your website fascinating.

      I’m sick of all the rubbish information and lies the big OEM’s keep pushing.

      I first started to realise what was going on when I read Dave Pelz short game bible. He as you do talks about set make up and the importance of the usefulness of every club in the bag.

      I find the information about how the carbon fibre shafts and the fusion driver design very interesting. I work for a company that designs and manufactures prepreg machines. So it’s interesting how people use the end product.

      Thanks, Rick

    • RICK
      If all golfers were technical people, engineers, designers and scientists, we could rule the world !!! HA! It’s all the non technical people and their susceptibility to marketing hype that causes the “problems” !!! That is interesting you work in the field you do – yes, for sure without your machines there could be no carbon fiber composites used in golf equipment !!

      TOM

  19. Is there a reason you are not using a ‘softer’ metal such as 1020 or 1025, since my impression is that these metals feel softer than 1035, and thereby give a ‘better’, ‘softer’ feel for better players like myself. Thanks

    • MAHDHIR

      With all due respect, the difference between the lower carbon grades of 0.05% to 0.1% in carbon content is so very, very small that I am amazed you feel that you can note a difference. I was part of a group back some years ago that conducted a test with former tour player Raymond Floyd to see if he could detect hardness differences in iron head steel alloys. Floyd at the time was known on the tour as the most feel sensitive player of all the pros. That’s why we chose him and we were glad he agreed to be part of the test.

      In the test we made identical iron heads, one of 1035 carbon steel and the other from 431 stainless steel. The Rockwell hardness between the two alloys was quite large with the 1035 being HRB 88 and the 431 being HRC 12. Long story short, Floyd could not detect which head was which. This led me to go on from there in more research which led me to find that when a golfer thinks one iron is softer in steel feel than another, 99 times our of 100 the conclusion is made wrongly because of differences in the ball, or differences in the shaft, or differences in the head weight feel or differences in the head design itself with respect to weight distribution and center of gravity position.

      I do suspect that in your case it may very well be that what you thought was a difference from 1020 to 1035 was in fact a difference in the shape of the back design of the head and how that created differences in the two heads with regard to face body section thickness and center of gravity position. Because the hardness and yield strength differences between 1020 and 1035 are indistinguishable if the comparison test is done with the same exact head shape, same CG position, same shaft, same ball, same loft, same air temperature.

      Hope this helps,
      TOM

  20. Hey Guys! I’m not much of a “reviewer”, but these clubs deserve it! I’ve had everything from Titleist to Mizuno and I can honestly say these are the best feeling heads I’ve played, period. I’ve got the combo set (4-7) 575MMC CB and (8-PW) 575MMC MB. The look is elegant and clean at address and the feel is buttery soft! Great clubs and great customer service! Tom, thanks for all of the invaluable insight on club making and the industry! Best of luck to you all!

    • LEN
      First off, my sincere apology for the delay in responding. The notification feature for posts and comments was not working so we haven’t seen the posts being made here for us to respond. That’s a big Ooops. Sorry about that. But that aside, I do thank you so much for taking the time to comment and we are so pleased to hear that your mix and match 575 set is performing well and helping you enjoy this great game a little bit more than before!!!

      Thanks!
      TOM

  21. Tom,
    Just wanted to let you know the 575s are alive and very well in the New Year. I received a Christmas gift from my three sons who did not know I was playing the 575s. They purchased a set of big brand -Brand C “2016 Pro version” irons and while they are nice and I love my sons thoughtfulness they don’t compare in terms of feel, looks, workability. And despite the stronger lofts of brand C I have not noticed any loss of distance and love knowing precisely just how far I can hit my irons with the 575s. Happy New Year and thanks for making great equipment

    • MIKE:

      How can it not be a great Christmas present for me to hear that the 575’s won out over the big brand clubs !! Just hope that you got something different so your sons’ very nice gesture is not just sitting in the closet !! Thanks so much for your support and the very best to you in this great game !!

      TOM

  22. Hi Tom – I came across you and your brand when I visited Golf Science, a club fitter in Cape Town (South Africa) in December 2014. They fitted me with the 919 THI driver which has allowed me to control shape and trajectory – exactly what I was looking for at the time – best of all is the phenomenal feel – likened to hitting a very soft forged iron! At the time I had a set of Mizuno MP 64’s that I decided a few weeks ago to ‘supplement’ with the 575 MMC muscle back irons – this because I have never like the look of their shorter irons, to me, bulkier the shorter the club. I had the wedge to 7 iron built at Golf Science and shipped to me in Durban. From the first swing they have been nothing short of fantastic in feel, trajectory, looks and ball shaping. I will be ordering the 5 and 6 irons in the new year. The only downside is that the muscle back is not available in 4 and 3 irons? I did look at the cavity back options but preferring a very traditional blade looking club they did not fit my eye.

    Thank you for doing all the interesting technical clips for you tube as well as the great club design and manufacture.

    All the best for 2016 – Regards Barry.

    • BARRY
      Thanks very much for taking your time to visit and comment, and thanks so much for your decision to try out a few of our designs. It truly is an honor and a thrill to think that all the way down in South Africa you discovered my work and chose to give it a try. I am very pleased to hear that you like the performance and I am happy that Golf Science has done a good job of fitting you and building the clubs to meet your fitting specs.

      Plain and simple the reason I did not tool up a #3 and 4 iron in the muscleback version of the 575 is supply and demand. These days it is amazing even in cavity back game improvement designs how few golfers will ever buy and try to use a 3 and 4 iron. and with musclebacks being even less in demand in general vs all other iron styles, their 3 and 4 iron use is just so small that it doesn’t allow the return on the much higher cost of forging dies to make these low loft heads.

      I can tell you that the 575 cavity back heads are forged from the same exact dies as the 575 musclebacks with the difference being the cavity back is CNC machined out of the back of the blank raw forging. so the cavity back version of the 575 is identical in its size, offset, topline and everything to the muscleback. Thus when you set the CB version down behind the ball, it looks exactly the same as the MB version. as such you really should be able to use the CB version in the #3 and 4 irons.

      Thanks very much for your support. I absolutely hate misinformation and embellishment in talk about golf clubs so I will always keep trying to use writing and videos to tell the truth about golf clubs so golfers might have a better chance to get better value for the money they have to spend on golf equipment.

      TOM

  23. Tom,

    After having pretty much made up my mind to go to a well-known, national golf retailer and get fitted for some new Mizuno irons, a friend from Pinehurst told me about your book “The New Search for the Perfect Golf Club”. I read your book and was convinced of the benefits of a professional fitting. After a referral to Tom Miller at Par Golf in Raleigh, NC I drove 50 miles to actually see your 575 MMC CB iron heads. One look is all it took to know that these were what I wanted in my bag(and my friends would tell you that I am somewhat “detail oriented”). From there, Tom was very generous with his time and effort to see that my clubs were fitted and built to just what worked for me. And, his craftsmanship was excellent. They look great.

    I hit them yesterday on the golf course for the first time, and am extremely well pleased that I took this route for my new clubs. The feel, both through the swing and at impact is exactly what I had hoped for. I have always routinely fought a hook, but am already seeing much less curve in my ball flight, and the trajectory is just right. You say in your book that if the shaft flex and club set-up is correct, it will help the golfer make his best swing. That sure seems to be true. These new 575s allow me to finally be patient through the swing and feel that I will get the result I am looking for in the shot.

    Thanks for your book, and for your great design of the 575 MMC CB. I would put them up against anything I have seen (and I’ve seen just about all of them!)

    • DWIGHT

      You have no idea how good it makes us feel, and me as the designer as well, to be able to read about your experience and hear about the path that led you to us, to Tom and to be able to realize the benefits of proper clubfitting when done by one who is skilled and experienced in the field. needless to say in today’s world of image marketing, we get beat up pretty hard from time to time by golfers who simply refuse to believe that what we talk about could possibly be better for golfers than the usual path of buying big company clubs off the rack from big stores or online stores. so your comments were a bit like a “salve” to give us all a bit of respite from the criticism and lack of respect we face from those who did not have the courage as you did to take a leap of faith in the other direction.

      Thank you so much for your support and for having taken the time to do as you did to gain the information, to find Tom and to be properly custom fit for your new irons. Best wishes to you in this great game !!

      TOM

  24. 575s – I’ll never leave you again…….
    I bought my first set in 2012, but I was convinced during a driver fitting session at the start of this season to move onto another, different, brand……. While they were “fine” I never really got on properly with them
    After some lengthy soul searching and some interesting discussions & sessions with my local fitter, and my own teaching pro – I’ve gone back to the 575mmc’s, and they’re not coming out of my bag until they wear out!

    As an aside – I’ve been fitted for clubs on numerous occasions, but I’m coming to the realisation that you need to find a fitter that really understands your swing and knows your game. Fitting & coaching appear to have diverged and exist in isolated spheres – and in many instances are totally separate activities. From personal experience I can optimise my equipment by numbers using launch monitors on a range that “should” be perfect for me, but in reality they don’t really work to their full potential. It’s only when I’ve worked with a fitter that really understands me, and the things that can go a but squirrely when I’m not quite on my game, that I get a set of clubs that actually work for me.

    Once more Tom – congratulations on, and thank you for, a tremendous product!

    • Very glad to hear that your relationship with the 575’s is back in good shape and that you are happy with the reunion!! You know, golf clubs can be forgiving in different ways – not only for certain shotmaking forgiveness characteristics but they can easily forgive when the golfer finds a different club to spend his time with !! HA ! Just kidding of course. Very pleased to hear you are happy with the clubs.

      There is absolutely no question that there is a definite relationship between clubfitting and any golfer’s swing characteristics. The absolute best clubfitter is someone who also has a decent level of swing knowledge to complement his equipment knowledge because there is a balance that exists. Problem is that very few clubmakers have good swing knowledge and even fewer swing coaches know anything about proper clubfitting. But I am pleased to hear that you have managed to work it out for your game so that you are pleased and you are moving forward with your play to keep enjoying this great game more than before!

      TOM

  25. Hi Tom
    I’m looking to put together some 575 s … Great feel! Want a high launching shaft was thinking XP 105. Any other options that you can think of. I’m on a budget. Many thanks
    Nic

    • NIC

      Whether a shaft can offer a higher launch depends on several key swing characteristics from the golfer. The higher the clubhead speed, the more aggressive the downswing, the later the release of the golfer and the softer the tip section design of the shaft, the more CHANCE or more POSSIBILITY that the golfer can see a little higher flight on the ball. But as the golfer’s speed is avg to lower, as his release is less late in the downswing, then the softer tip design shafts just do not show much of a shot height change. Among our STEEL shaft iron models, the one with the softer tip section design is the S2S Superlite, which is our 100g steel iron shaft.

  26. Tom,

    I thought you may say something like that. It’s unfortunate, because cast clubs are often cheaper to produce and more durable. I have the 979ss irons right now and like them, but would have loved a cast player’s head to try out.
    Out of curiosity, why are forged heads more expensive than cast? Is it more due to the raw materials or the forging process itself? Because if it’s due to the forging process, you could produce player’s heads for cheaper with the same design and similar materials… and therefore the same SOUND and FEEL as the forged head (but for cheaper!).
    I realize there isn’t a market for such a club because better players typically want a forged club (unless they buy pings), but I ask because I am curious about the price differences.

    Thanks,
    Kyle

    • KYLE:

      Several reasons that forged irons are more expensive than cast. First are the forging dies required to make the forged iron heads. The tooling dies for each head number in a forged iron set cost between $5000 and $7000 to make because you need 5 separate dies to make each head number, and the dies have to be cut from very hard tool steel alloys so they can withstand the stress of repeatedly hammering the steel into the desire shape. For cast irons, the dies to make each head are 1/10 that cost because in casting, the first step is to shoot a special wax into the dies to start the inv casting process.

      Then you have far more machining and processing steps to turn a raw forging into the finished head than you ever do with a casting. With cast heads you just have to do a light grind to final weight and then cosmetically polish the head to finish it. With raw forgings you have many steps of machining and grinding before you ever get to the point of polishing the heads – and then you have the additional cost to chrome plate the forging because being made from carbon steel, the heads will rust if you don’t plate them.

      Add it all up and the finished cost of a forging is nearly 4 times that of a finished investment cast iron head with tooling costs being ten times that for a cast iron head. You can now cast the same carbon steel alloys that are used in forging. So, on surface it would seem that you could duplicate everything in a forging by casting. But there are differences that the most sensitive feel players might be able to detect. In casting the grain structure of the carbon steel ends up haphazard with many little microscopic holes and voids all through the steel. In forging, the grain structure is very consistently aligned with far fewer voids. To 99.99% of all golfers, this is totally insignificant to the impact feel of the head. But to that 0.01 or 0.001% who have a very refined sense of feel for the impact of the shot, these grain structure differences are perceptible. However, that’s not the real reason that a cast carbon steel iron would never be as popular as a forged carbon steel head. The real reason is a false mental/psychological belief triggered more by ego on behalf of those golfers drawn to player’s irons that no matter what, a casting is deficient to a forging. No matter what you could do to present data other wise, these players will always operate on the basis of “don;t confuse me with the facts, my mind’s already made up.” and when a person adopts that attitude, there is little to nothing that can be done to change it.

      TOM

    • Thanks Tom,

      I assumed the forging dies had a lot to do with it. I also had been under the impression that many of the issues that come with cast clubs (hot spots, air pockets, etc..) have been drastically improved over the years.
      Thanks for taking the time to respond, I really enjoy learning about the process.

      Kyle

    • What’s interesting is that before the mid 60s when inv cast irons first came about, all irons were made by forging, they were all made in the USA, and they were cheaper than any of the inv cast irons that came into the market at this time. Main reason was the MUCH lower cost of labor in those olden days. Minimum wage back then was around $1.25/hr. There were still the same requirements for making the forging dies and performing all the production steps, but labor and machinery both were so much less expensive then. Things changed a lot in that respect over the past 50 yrs for the final cost of a forged iron to be around 4x that of an inv cast iron now !!!

  27. Tom,
    Are there any plans to make a cast player’s head? Something with this kind of head profile at a lower price point would be amazing.
    Thanks,
    Kyle

    • KYLE

      For this I can be completely frank and honest, although you aren’t probably going to like my answer. In a word, No. reason is that three times in my past in the 30 yrs I have been designing clubhead models, I have designed a cast player’s iron. And all three times it failed miserably to generate enough demand to remain in the product line and to have made it worth doing. I should have learned after the second time, but sometimes my own desire to create something makes me stubborn and unable to see the forest for the trees!! Bottom line is that the vast majority of golfers who want a player’s type head design also want it to be a forged carbon steel construction and never cast because they have developed a whole list of reasons why they don’t want a cast head. There are not enough like you in other words !! so I don’t think that type of design is in the cards. Sorry about that but we sure do thank you for your interest!

  28. Hi Tom,
    I recently had a set of 575 MMC’s custom built for me by Phil Moore (Phil’s Custom Golf Shop, Southern California). These are, by far, the best clubs I have ever hit. I have played competitive golf for 27yrs starting at age 13 and have played just about every blade offered by OEM’s. This is the first set I’ve had custom built, and Phil knocked it out of the park, as far as I’m concerned. I am equally confident with each one of my new custom 575 Irons, which is far more than I can ever say about any OEM’s clubs I have ever hit. Though to be fair, I guess I could have dropped a few grand (not including the clubs) to go get custom fit by one of the other major OEM’s. Then, I might have had a similar experience with their irons but I don’t have that kind of money to drop on “might have”.
    I also had Phil build a 919 Driver with 10* loft and 0* Square, and I’m loving that as well. I think I am going to end up with Wishon Clubs all the way through my bag Driver-wedges. I used to buy into the OEM’s hype and there was no way you would find something other than a name brand club in my bag, but no longer, your clubs and Phil Moore’s fitting are the only way to go for me. Thanks for taking the time to educate and inform golfers on the importance of club fitting.

    Best Regards
    Steve Tanis

    • Steve:

      Thanks so much for stopping by to share your experience with Phil and the new custom fit sticks. You definitely picked a good man to work with as Phil is good and his experience is solid to be able to guide golfers into their best fitting specs. Very glad to hear that you chose to work with him. I also applaud the courage it had to take you to overcome the big company marketing to choose to work with Phil and to let him fit you into our designs. $50 mill a year in marketing per each big company does have a very powerful influence on so many golfers so you are to be commended for marching to the beat of a little different drummer in your club selection work. Thanks so much, I am VERY pleased to hear you like the clubs and they are performing well for you and the very best wishes to you in this great game.

      TOM

  29. Dear Mr. Wishon – I have been intending for a while to write, but inertia is strong, and I haven’t gotten to it until now. I had a combo set of 575MMCs made for me (Tony Rhode, Indianapolis/Carmel, IN), and have been very pleased with them. I echo other comments – very solid, great feel, very pleasing to the eye (although beauty is as beauty does, so even an ugly club that works well would be desirable). I originally wanted a set of 555s, but I waited too long (inertia), and they were being closed out and thus unavailable. One of the things I liked about the 555s was the fact that the PW was 48 degrees and the increments were an even 4 degrees. I could fit them into my desired 60-56-52-48-etc. progression. I was a bit disappointed that after your many expositions about the evils of loft creep, the 575MMCs had succumbed and gone over to the dark side. I use a two-stage hybrid transition with a 21 degree wood-style hybrid and a 24 degree iron-style hybrid (much like your new 590DIH) which is only 2 degrees from the nominal 26 degrees of the 575MMC 5-iron. I also retained 60, 56, and 52-degree wedges. With those two fixed end points, this made for some odd increments instead of the graceful constant 4-degree progression I had envisioned. After some hand selection and tweaking, we got the lofts where I wanted (I was concerned about changing the sole angles by bending, but this hasn’t seemed to be a problem), and Tony did some creative wonders trimming the shafts. Bottom line, although initially disappointed about the lofts, I am very happy with the clubs. I have been playing for well over five decades (I still have my 1964 U.S. Royal blades), and the 575s are the best feeling irons I have swung. Kudos.

    On a totally separate note, it sounded as though you missed the point of Dennis Corley’s question of July 14, 2015. The lack of the #3 and #4 in the muscleback version was not at issue. He was asking about something I, too, had noticed. The text of the 575MMC description does not agree with the specification sheet. The last bullet of the description states that the 575MMC is available in cavityback #3-7 and muscleback #8-wedges (specific combo set only), while the specification sheet indicates that the 575MMC is available in cavityback #3-wedges and muscleback #5-wedges (variable full and combo sets possible). I suspect that this is a case of the description reflecting the original product offering and not being updated when the line was expanded. It’s a bit like still saying “Tom Wishon Golf Technology is pleased to offer an array of different custom titanium driver head designs” when you now offer only one. (Sorry. I was amused when I read that.) Anyway, a simple text update would eliminate any confusion.

    Best to you.

    • LARRY

      There is an old adage in this industry with regard to this trend of companies lowering the lofts of their iron models. “He who completely ignores the trend to lower loft irons will die a quick death from that ignorance.” Yes I have been against this trend because it began and it continues for one reason only – to fool golfers into thinking they hit the irons longer because of the company’s technology and to compel them to buy the clubs. There is no other reason for this no matter that some like to defend their lower lofts by saying BS about the center of gravity requires it. That’s BS and down deep they know it is too. It’s all about selling more clubs and knowing that golfers are addicted to more distance so much they will buy anything they hit longer than what they have.

      All that being the case, it is also true that golfers don’t care if the reason they hit their clubs longer is because today’s 7 iron has the loft of yesterday’s 5 iron. They just care that they can hit their 7 iron longer than they used to. So anyone/any company who clings tightly to a belief to continue with the old loft specs is quite simply going to go out of business when golfers find they can’t hit your 7 iron as far as the other company’s 7 iron. Nothing on the planet can overcome that. So I will talk and I will rail on about how bad this has been to do this to make anyone and every one aware of it, but if I want to stay in business I have to follow on with the trend to a certain extent.

      How do I justify that? Because we here are 100% all about professional Nth degree custom fitting for every golfer on the planet. Through our books, our videos, our website, we tout the benefits of being custom fit by someone who really knows how to do it. In that sense we are talking the talk to push and promote something that IS WITHOUT QUESTION better for any and every golfer than continuing to buy these big company clubs off the rack in golf retail stores.

      As you can tell, I get a little worked up about this stuff. I hate it when making money is the first goal of a company. That’s why I continue to work in anonymity doing what I do because I know that no matter what, with my design work and with the technical information we provide, we are doing our best to offer golfers and clubmakers the very best and very most worthwhile items and information possible. Thanks so much for getting interested in what we do and what we can offer, especially when the work is done by a very good clubmaker.

      On the last thing you mention, we’ll take a look at that copy to amend it so there can;t be other confusion from it. Thanks much for clarifying that.

      TOM

  30. I just had a set of the 575s made for me by Ray Petracek, Custom Clubs by Ray, as a 50th birthday present to myself. 3 to 6 iron in the cavity back and 7 to AW in the muscle back with stiff S2S black 85 graphite shafts and Winn dry tack mid-size grips. They were MOI matched to my favorite club from my old set. All I can say is WOW! Not only are they beautiful to look at but they are incredibly solid. I had 6 birdies during last Sunday’s round, just the fifth round with the clubs in the bag. I’m sure glad I decided to finally treat myself to some Wishon irons!

    • JAMES

      Thanks so much for taking the time to come to the site and share your experience with the new 575 mixed set of irons. If you think it is fun for me to be able to design these models, which of course it is (!!!), that pleasure falls a distant second to having the chance to read a comment such as yours !! It truly is a thrill for me to be able to hear that you like the new irons so well. Even through your comment I can see the smile on your face !!

      Thanks so much and the very best to you in this great game,
      TOM

  31. Question:
    Your 575MMC description text has as the last bullet:

    “All New CNC Machining Pattern Technology results in a beautiful milled surface texture. 575MMC available in RH in cavity back #3 – #7 with muscleback #8 – Wedges.”

    But the pictures has specs sheets showing that the MMC CB is available in 3-AW and the MMC MB is available in 5-AW.

    So which is correct? IF the later, are there more photos showing the full set of each model?

    Thanks,

      If you are referring to the main photo on the model page of the website, that shot shows the cavity back version of the 575 in the #4 and 7 and then the blade version of the 575 in the PW. The blade version is designed with a very shallow small recession on the top of the “muscle” of the back of the head while the cavity back has a conventional full cavity across the whole back of the head. The blade is tooled in #5 to AW, the cavity back in #3 to AW. Reason for no #3 and 4 in the blade version is simply no demand there anymore. The number of people who want these low loft heads in a blade is very, very small these days because of the knowledge that lofts like 21,24 are so hard to hit in a blade style iron. So we are most certainly encouraging anyone who is interested in the blade version who wants a 3 and 4 iron instead of hybrids, to do that in the cavity back version to then blend with and go into the musclebacks for the rest of the set. The overall head shape size and features of both versions were designed side by side so that golfers could mix and match to choose the set makeup combination between the CB and MB as they so desired – or to go solely with one version or the other. Thanks very much for your interest !

  32. This spring I bought a set of these magnificent Clubs from Thomas Rosenberg here in Denmark. He did a very god job at fitting me and kept me informed all the way. I was even invited to join him while he assambled the irons. This was a real eye opener experience!!! I know that Thomas is quite new into the Golf fitter role, but I can see that he does an excelent job in helping his customers to get the best Clubs they can.
    I ended up with the 575CB model 3i-PW and I simply love them!
    Last thursday I went to the driving range with Thomas in order to look into drivers. Next day he build me a 919THI driver to test out… that too performs really great as it is built for me and not an off the shelt item 🙂
    Thanks a lot to Thomas Rosenberg and to you Tom for making these great products!

      I am so pleased to hear your comment and very happy that you chose to work with Thomas. I met him when he attended three of my clubfitting technology seminars in Sweden over the past two years. I have to say that I have not met very many clubmakers who are as committed, who are as interested and who study this craft as diligently as Thomas does. He jumped into clubfitting with more energy and more interest than just about anyone I have met in this field in my entire career. So I am pleased to hear that the results of your work with Thomas are good, and that he also increased your enjoyment of the experience by welcoming you to be a part of it all from start to finish !!!

      I am so pleased to hear this from you. Because Thomas is the perfect example of what clubfitting should be all about – one golfer with one very committed clubmaker who works very hard to be sure the golfer gets the very best equipment for his swing. Thank you and the very best to you in this great game !!

  33. Tom-

    I always see your posts on golfwrx, and I finally stopped by to look at your iron offerings. I play cobra s3 pro’s, and really like the look of your 575’s. I’m switching to graphite shafts at 34 due to injuries, and will likely be having a second shoulder surgery (RH, L labrum tear ’08, R rotator cuff ’15) and am already trying to buy time for my joints. I’m putting recoil proto 125 F5 in my Cobra’s, but wanted to look at a set of your 575’s with Program 95’s in a tipped R flex for my comeback set until I feel ready to step my shaft weight and flex back up. Unfortunately, I don’t see any fitters listed in Hawaii for your clubs, so I will likely need to pick up another set of my Cobra’s. I did want to mention that in reading your posts on golfwrx, I don’t feel that you’re a big fan of the loft creep that’s taken place, and I was hoping to see your PW @ 50*, but was disappointed to see that it was 46*. Any thoughts of even attempting to reverse the trend?

    • DEREK

      Thanks very much for your comment and your interest. In cases when there are no clubfitters within reasonable proximity to a golfer, we do offer a service as an option to those golfers that we call YOUR FIT custom clubfitting service. If the golfer is competent in their knowledge of their swing characteristics, we offer the golfer a VERY extensive YOUR FIT Fitting Information Form in which we ask very specific questions and ask for specific golfer and swing measurements that will tell us what we need to know as fitting experts here to be able to respond with a full specs fitting recommendation, with a quotation for the custom built clubs. The golfer can do nothing, he can order/purchase 1 or 2 of the clubs to test to see if the fit is good, or he can order/purchase the full set. No obligation. We do this because we know that there are not enough competent clubfitters everywhere to serve all the golfers who may be interested. The link to the YOUR FIT Fitting INformation Form is here – http://wishongolf.com/clubmakers/twgt-your-fit-custom-fit-questionnaire/

      On the subject of loft creep, yes, I have been critical of this trend in the golf equipment industry because I am 100% certain its origin came simply from the desire of the companies to sell more sets of clubs on the basis of golfers hitting the ball farther with the higher number irons, and from that, thinking the companies’ “new technology” was superior and worthy of them spending the money to buy the new clubs. There has been no scientific reason to do this based on design differences in heads.

      One of the problems with this trend is the simple fact that while lower iron lofts does make it so there are more of the lower number irons in sets that most golfers won;t be able to hit, it still is a fact that most every golfer will hit lower loft 7, 8, 9, PW longer in distance because those irons are shorter in length and even with stronger lofts, the lofts are still high enough for most golfers to hit and then see they get more distance. So that means 90% of all golfers who hit two different companies’ irons and hit one set noticeably longer, they don’t know this comes from each head having a lower loft and even if they do, they don’t care because to most golfers, hitting the ball longer than they did before is too compelling to pass up.

      So that means any companies that do not follow this trend to lower the lofts on their irons will most certainly lose sales. And that’s something that no golf company can afford to do. So while I dislike and criticize this trend, at the same time I know that if I don’t at least do close to the same thing, I am out of business. So what we do instead are two things – we design high COR face irons to get more distance from the higher COR and then we do not lower the lofts as much as do other companies per each head number. So for example, our lowest loft 5 iron is 26* but with the high COR face on some of our iron models, the golfer won;t lose distance with that vs a company’s 5 iron that may be 24*. It;s a tiny difference but at least with this I am trying to not cave in completely to this trend. The other thing we try to do is really to educate golfers and clubfitters to always, always focus on fitting the golfers for the right set makeup in the iron set. Which means trying to convince the golfers to not even think about using a 3, 4 or even 5 iron in their iron sets and to go with hybrids or high loft fwy woods in their place. That way the loft creep does not force the golfer into buying iron sets in which they have three of the irons they are not good enough to hit to fly well up in the air to merit having those irons. To sell low loft irons and say nothing about the fact that most golfers will not be able to hit three of the irons they buy is bad. So we really push proper set makeup fitting to try to help golfers not get hurt by this loft creep trend.

      Thanks so much for your interest,

  34. Excellent irons. Very good custom fit by Tom. I sold my old Mizuno irons and they where sweet irons but these are better.

  35. I have played the 550c for several years now, love the looks, feel and ball flight. The middle irons are showing some wear to the finish on the club face and small dings are present. Performance still seems good. At what point should I look to replace them with a new set? The 575CB set looks great, how would you compare the performance and characteristics between the 2 sets?
    Thanks Oleg

    • OLEG
      Forged iron heads can have a lot of wear and still will perform just fine. The things to look for to know if the wear is starting to affect performance are, 1) when some of the scorelines start to look like they are getting wider. Hitting THOUSANDS of balls can eventually start to wear the areas of the scorelines that are most in contact with the ball, but this normally takes many years of hitting LOTS of balls. 2) if you hit balls frequently off mats, and if you hit down on the ball aggressively, it is possible that the lofts or the lies or both could have changed a little bit from many aggressive impacts on a mat. But this can be checked and readjusted if it happens to get the lofts and lies back to what they should be.

      Without question the face roughness on any iron model will wear down to be more smooth pretty fast, usually within the first year of use if the golfer hits a lot of balls and plays a lot. Irons can be re-blasted on the face to restore this face roughness finish, but the problem with doing that on any forged iron is that the face blasting can break through the chrome plating on the face, and then expose the carbon steel to rust. Typically when a golfer wants to re blast the faces of forged carbon steel irons, they have to get the whole head re chromed along with it. When face blasting roughness wears down totally, that is usually noticed by less backspin on shots.

      The 575’s are very slightly smaller in overall head size and blade length than the original 550’s. They are a little bit more compact size head. For most who really are drawn to a forging, this is not a problem. The slightly smaller head of the 575’s does not really reduce the off center hit performance to a point that anyone has ever said they felt this happened in comparison to the 550C or 555C. The offsets are the same, the topline width is the same and we definitely have been told by the clubmakers who use the 575s that their golfers do like the impact feel and performance a lot.

      Thanks much!
      TOM

  36. Tom
    I’m a little late to the 555 party having been a fan of your 771 model. My game has improved a bit and I decided I was ready for the forged 555. And I am glad I did! Great feel, plenty forgiving, easy to work and very consistent distance control. Now all I need is a driver for XMAS! I am quickly becoming a fan. Thanks for making great products

    • MIKE

      The thanks are to YOU for learning about us and what we do, and then for deciding to be fit with one of our designs. We appreciate that very much and we are very pleased to hear that you like the new irons!! And we do have a good relationship with SANTA who is “on call” whenever a golfer gets the urge for something new going into the holidays!!!

      TOM

  37. Beautiful irons. The pictures do not do them justice. I have had others see them in my bag and make comments how they are the best looking irons they have ever seen. I am a long time Wishon iron player. I had a set of 550 C/ M’s that I wore out. They were replaced with a set of 555 C/ M’s that I wore out.

    So recently when I was looking for irons I had a big decision to make. The logical part of my brain said to get 560 MC for more forgivenes, but the artist part of my brain said to get the 575’s. I built a demo of each and the 575’s won out. They are amazing.

    So I built up a set of 575 MMC MB’s using Nippon 1150 shafts. After several rounds with these irons, I think they are a nice improvement on the 555’s. Great control and ballflight. Much more forgiving than I would have thought.

    • Thank you Fred!! Very happy to hear that the 575’s are “behaving” themselves in your bag and that you like them!!

      TOM

  38. These irons look great! I live in Austin, Tx I would love to give them a few swings. Is there a fitter locally? I couldn’t find anyone within 50 miles of here… I wish the 555m’s were still available will they ever come back?

    • KIP:

      THanks so much for the kind words about the irons!! We do appreciate that! We do not have a clubfitter who currently works directly with us and our designs in the Austin area. However, I did contact one of my close friends who I used to work with in the golf business and who knows the Austin golf scene as well as anyone and he offered a very high recommendation for a clubmaker in the Austin area named Gabe McGrew. I trust and know my contact so well in this industry that if he says Gabe is the best in Austin, then you can believe it.

      So I would recommend you contact Gabe, talk to him about your fitting needs and I am sure he can help you because as a qualified clubfitter, Gabe can obtain our designs at anytime for his work. His contact information is as follows:

  39. Tom- I am excited to report on the performance of my 575MMC. I have these in the S2S stepless steel. I have had them in the bag for three weeks. Week 1- two rounds with my wife and kids- 77-73- getting used to these. They are PRECISE. Feel is very good. I love the way they set up behind the ball. The turf interaction is great.

    Week 2- Two man best ball tournament. I am starting to get a good feel for these by day two. Third hole of day 169 yd par three. ACE– I win a CAR. WOW.

    Thank you for this great design. The match of shaft and head design is perfect! Ironically– I am looking at choosing a Durango as my choice of vehicle!!

    • GREG:

      Huge WOW from all of us !!!! How about that! If you’re going to make the perfect shot, how great is it that a new CAR is on the line for it !!! I have to tell you that I believe this is a FIRST for me in my work. I have been very pleased to hear that players have put one in the jar here and there for a ONE in the past, but I don’t believe I have ever heard that the perfect shot resulted in something so significant as a NEW CAR !!! Congrats to you for sure and how nice is that ??!!! And how fitting would that be if you chose a Durango for the car !!! Big time LOL on that one!!

      Good for you and thanks so much for sharing this with us all!!

      TOM

  40. Hi Tom,

    Im your “fans” from Malaysia! Im just start about 2 months using this 575MMC CB iron 5i~PW fitted with DG S300, the result is surprised and very exciting about the distance, and accuracy! The most surprised to me is about the forgiveness, i cant find any others club have such forgiveness level able to compare with this! Love this iron so much! The club head feedback is very nice~ Love it! Now im planning to get the PCF Micro Tour 52′ wedges!

    Thanks for delivering good weapon for us!

  41. I just got my new sticks by Tom Wishon Golf Technology. Custom 575mmc 5 – PW with KBS Tour Stiff custom tipped towards a stiff+ flex. Clubs were built and custom fit by Tom Miller at AAGolfClubs in Raleigh NC. They are breathtaking and the feel is just amazing. People that refuse to play anything other then major OEM clubs are terribly missing out by not considering a Wishon club! Still breaking them in but boy do I love em so far! Tom at AA golf clubs in Raleigh is a top notch club builder! #teamwishon

    • KEVIN
      Many thanks for taking the time to visit our site and offer your very nice and kind comments. You did the right thing to seek out Tom to work with as he is a very good clubmaker and clubfitter who we are very glad to have working with us to offer our designs to his customers. I’m so pleased to hear that you like the feel of the irons and we do hope they continue to please you.

      TOM

  42. Tom , I have just been to Jacky Montgomery in Dunbar to measure up for a combo set of 560 (4-7) and 575 (8-w)! Phil has recommended a step less s2s shaft in reg flex. I have been using 550c with 6.0 rifle wishon shafts made by Jimmy Affleck 5 yrs ago. I have had several great games with these irons but now find the shafts a bit stiff as I’ve had some health issues lately and not been swinging the clubs particularly well.
    My question is should I mix and match or stick with the full cavity back 575’s.
    Your club designs are fantastic and very misunderstood by those who have to have a brand stamped on the heads.
    The club head speed was showing 80 mph on a 6 iron! Would I benefit from using a Nippon pro 95 steel shaft.

    Keep up the good work.
    Cheers

    • Euan

      Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and offer your comments on your experience. I have to say that it has really been a pleasure to be working with Jacky and Philip at Dunbar. They really do understand the benefits of proper fitting for their players and I am so pleased that you worked with then and that the clubs are performing well for you. I keep telling them on one of my trips over the pond that I am going to stop in to see them and perhaps get a chance to wander your wonderful links to hit a few myself!!

      Thanks much and the very best wishes to you in this great game !!!

  43. I played a course and played with a pretty good player. He was hitting Titelist.GII..but said he was getting new irons, Wishon, a name most don’t hear much about. I played so good I was back the next day. He showed up also and handed me his new 8 iron to hit. The shafts were steel graphite. The clubs were gorgeous 560mc that looked every bit of $2,000 sticks. They were fit for him so I think they were too heavy at D4 for me. Plus the shafts were 1″ longer. I just thought they were nice looking clubs.

    • RON
      Thanks so much for your post and for your kind comments about the 560MC irons. This is a design that has been very popular with the custom clubmakers for their golfers for several years running now, chiefly because it combines the best of both worlds between a traditional forged carbon steel with game improvement features. So it allows the better player to even a little better than average player to have the classic low offset, thin topline shape of a typical forging with the off center hit forgiveness that has typically only been available with a cast deep cavity back iron. It’s definitely been one of my favorites, not just because I have played with them personally since day one (and you know I could choose to play with ANY model in our line !!! HA! ) but because the design itself was a lot of fun to think up and then go out to create. The genesis of the 560s was my desire to create a true forging that could offer very high off center hit performance like a cast cavity back. To do this required us making the raw forging of the 560 shape first, but then putting each head on a CNC machining center to literally cut and carve out the whole back of the head to create that deep back cavity which is the key to the off center hit performance. I very much enjoy design projects in which we do something that hasn’t been done before and the 560’s were definitely that.

      Thanks again !!

      TOM

  44. Mr. Wishon,

    I purchased a set of 575’s, AW-3i. I have been playing them since March, and OMG!!! Unbelievable!!! I played for a small college; graduated in 1996, so I know good clubs when I hit them. The set was exceptionally well made by Dave Malthouse: Clubfitters Intl., Louisville ,KY. I wanted to leave a message in case anyone in this area is interested in Wishon clubs and want them professionally made.
    Thanks for your creation and leading me to Dave :-))

    Rod

    • ROD

      That’s really GREAT to hear and thank you so much for sharing your experience with us!! We’re glad you got together with Dave as he is very experienced and knows what he is doing – of course as evidenced by the results you got after working with him. Best wishes to you for continued enjoyment in this great game!!!

  45. Tom, just built a set of 575 Cavity back irons (4-PW) for a club colleague of mine.
    Having carried out a static lie test and adjusted accordingly, we went to our local driving range to check the clubs for flight, spacing, length and directional accuracy.
    I had already built a test 6i, which to quote him “I just love for trajectory and distsnce. Never had a club with such a satisfying high flight”.
    We started with the PW and progressed to the 4i.
    The first 4 shots were right out of the middle of the club and were so accurate that, on the impact sticker, it looked as though he had only struck 1 ball and he hit 2 over 200yds (208 the furthest). He hit a further one and immediately he struck it he turned to me and said “I love this club, it’s the trajectory. Didn’t look to see where it was going or how far, he just knew it was exactly what he wanted”
    When we checked the “Standard Deviation” for all of the all of the irons the numbers ranged between 1.8 and 4.8, which indicate very accurate ball striking.
    I know that this is down to his ball striking but I also know that the sheer pleasure he got from hitting the 575s and the confidence he had in the clubs (with S2S Stepless shafts) was as much a factor as his striking ability.
    It gave me a great deal of satisfaction building the irons, a great deal of satisfaction to see the product give this golfer such joy striking the irons, and all of it stems from the your skill in designing another beautiful club head.
    Tom–Kudos in Spade

    • DONALD
      Don’t sell yourself short by ANY means, please – I know that you have VERY SOLID EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE in your fitting work for golfers, so I have to believe that your work to tune in on the right lengths, lies, shaft, weighting and everything fitting wise had to be a HUGE part of the reason for the golfer’s pleasure with the clubs. Nice work on your part in other words and I step back to offer my congratulations on a job well done for this golfer. Kind of nice when a golfer feels this way about your work, isn’t it !!!!!

      Thanks !!

      TOM

  46. I bought a set (5-GW) of 575s from my clubfitter last spring. I had my best summer of my life, based on scoring and my play. I played a lot of golf, which I’m sure had something to do with it, but I am POSITIVE that a GREAT CLUBFITTING (from Don Coyle – Country Acres Golf, Mt Vernon, IL) combined with these great clubs were the biggest factor in my play.

    During that summer, I shot my lowest round ever, 69(-1), won two amateur tournaments on the golf channel am tour, and won my club championship at my local course. Some of my friends made fun of me because I would tee off with irons instead of driver/wood because I had so much confidence in them.

    Yesterday, I contacted my clubfitter again and ordered a 3 and a 4 iron in this set to replace my hybrid. I cannot wait for the temperature to warm up so I can get outside and play with them.

    Great job Tom!!!

    • JASON

      CONGRATULATIONS on your playing accomplishments and thanks so very much for taking your time to share your experience with us! That’s truly great to hear, and especially for me as the designer of the clubheads that you used to elevate your game so much. Even still, and I know that you know this from what you said, we here look at our relationship with the good clubfitters like Don as being a real team effort to help golfers. We do our part to design and manufacture the very best clubheads and shafts but without the clubfitters like Don, it falls short of being what it could be for the golfer. So kudos do most definitely go to Don for his stellar fitting and clubmaking work for you. And really? Since I personally know Don and know him to be really good in this craft, I’m so pleased that you chose to work with him for your fitting needs.

      Thanks so much and the VERY best wishes to you for a great 2014 season!!

      TOM

  47. Went to my club fitter to have my clubs re-gripped for the start of the season and he had a set of the 575MMC Progressive’s made up with recoil shafts and told me to have a go with the 7 iron , WOW , I have played and hit many of forged blades but these clubs are beyond anything I have ever felt ! The looks , the set up , everything is just gorgeous .

    I was going to wait till the end of this season to get a new set of irons , but I don’t think I am going to make it .

    I don’t know if I have the game for these , as I thinking more in the line of the 560MC irons as I need a bit more forgiveness , and if the 560MC’s are anything like the 575’s I will be in golf heaven !

    • DARRELL
      Thanks very much for your comment and we are very pleased to hear that you like the feel of impact with the 575’s. We are fortunate in that we tend to hear that a fair amount! No question though that the 560s are more forgiving simply because they have such a deeper cavity with much more substantial perimeter weighting. Most who play the 560s do like the on center feel but since that is a subjective matter that can vary from golfer to golfer, if you are thinking you could benefit more from the 560, just get one test iron to see how you like all aspects of it compared to the 575 and then make a final decision from there.

      Thanks!
      TOM

  48. Hi, I’ve just purchased a set of these beauties. Would these heads work well with the project x 95 5.5 flighted shafts as I’m currently using the project x pxi 5.5 on my present set and find the long irons trajectory a bit on the lower side. Like the feel on a lighter shaft with swing weight around D1 to 2.

    • Thank you and I hope you like them when you get them into play. While I do not know your swing characteristics with respect to your transition, tempo and release, it would seen that since you find the PXI’s a bit lower in flight, the flighted version should offer a little more trajectory. As in ALL contemplated shaft changes for trajectory or feel differences, it is always best to start with ONE iron as an experiment to try over several range hitting sessions before you decide to go with the full set of shafts.

      TOM

  49. My recent purchase and use of the HM micro-groove wedges have interested me in muscle backs for the first time. Right now I am playing HM Micro groove wedges (58 and 52 bent to 53) then 870s from PW to 5i). Curious what differences I might expect switching the PW-8i from 870s to 575s. I know I will lose a little distance and some forgiveness, but what might I pick up? More ability to spin the ball? Anything else? BTW, I have a late swing release which is getting more late with lessons and practice.

    • CLAUDE

      You are right in saying that due to the loft and face COR differences as well as the MOI and variable thickness face differences in the 870 and 575 sets, you could lose a little distance and off center hit forgiveness with the change to the 575’s for the short irons to PW. Spin should be a little more with the 575’s only because their lofts per head are slightly higher than the same number irons in the 870 set. But both models have the same shape/type of grooves and the same silicon bead blast surface on the face area so the friction would be similar, which then just brings about the loft difference between the models as the element to effect spin.

      You might see the height of the shot with the 575’s as a little lower – yes, lower because the 870’s thin face does by virtue of the way it flexes more, does launch the ball a little higher due to the way the ball comes off the thin face vs the thick face of the 575s.

      TOM

  50. I know, Tom… the only thing you can do to make me feel better is STOP DESIGNING THESE BEAUTIES!!!

    • Jaime

      LOL very loudly!! Thanks for your kind words! You know, I have been designing clubheads since 1986 and shafts since 1998 and it continues to be a whole lot of fun to do that!

      TOM

  51. As a leftie, I´ve got to stop watching these… it´s too painful

    • Jaime
      Please believe me after 27 yrs as a club designer, I feel your pain. I can’t tell you how many times I have wished that golf clubs could have evolved like tennis rackets and baseball bats so that the same “club” would work for both RH and LH players. Of course that isn’t the case so that requires the investment in two separate reversed sets of tooling dies as well as separate production inventory to be able to offer a model in both RH and LH. Unfortunately in my 27 yrs in design, never has there been a LH model that will sell more than 8% of the units it will in the RH version. So before creating the dies for a LH model, one has to unfortunately do the math to determine if 8% of what the RH version sells is enough to merit the cost of the dies and cost of the inventory. With forging dies costing $60,000 a set and the production inventory cost being a low to mid 5-figure cost on top of that, I am very sorry to say that a small, undermarketed company such as ours does have a difficult time pulling the trigger to expand the LH offerings. I truly sorry about that.

  52. I had built a set of 550 and played them for 7 years. They were some great irons. I decided to purchase a set of s56 ping irons, and I did like these. However, I made a 8 iron with the KBS tour 90 shaft and feel in love with the feel and control. I just made a complete set gap wedge thru 7 in blade and 6 thru 4 in cavity back. I have only played one round but already I know these are the best set of irons I have ever played. Thank you for always making great products!, and a special thanks for this great set of irons.

    • VINCENT

      Thanks very much for letting us know that with a little tweak of the shaft, you really like the way the 550’s play. We appreciate that very much and are pleased to hear that you are enjoying the game a little more than before!!

    • Just wanted to clarify that I built the new set with the 575’s. I still have the 550’s also with the wishon lite steel shafts.

  53. Truly beautiful irons. Reminds me of when I grew up playing Hogan blades from the 70’s. Very solid feeling, buttery smooth, great feedback. Absolutely love them!

    • Thank you Mel, it’s great to hear you like them!!

  54. Great looking set of iron set, hearing decent review from right hand golfers…. any chance this set will be offered in left hand?

    • JAE:

      It is VERY painful for us to not be able to offer our forged carbon steel iron models in left hand, I am truly sorry. The cost of the multiple tooling dies required to manufacture one forged iron model is over $50,000. To be able to offer both the cavity back and muscle back versions of the 575MMC would then be a tooling investment of over $100,000. Never in the history of the golf industry has a left hand model sold more than 8% of the units that it does in the right hand version. That means there simply would not be nearly enough left hand demand for our small company to be able to merit that much of a tooling investment to be able to create the 575’s in left hand. I truly am sorry.

  55. I got the set right at the end of Wisconsin’s golf season and only got them out one day. The 575’s are replacing a combo TM 2011 TP MB/MC combo. The 575’s are visiually stunning and they felt great. Blades seemed just a tad longer then the TM’s, which was exactly what I was looking for. Now I see in 2013 there are more options for blades to the 5 iron. They are now the perfect set of clubs for me. Thanks Tom for designing a great set of clubs.

  56. I have just received me 575 in PW to 4Iron, after being fitted by a club fitter recommended by Tom Wishon. I’m looking forward to playing with them, they do look good, and if i play as well as with them as they look, then i have no doubts my handicap will come down. i chose these over Miura CB 501

  57. Classic design, great look and forgiving. These irons are the best I have played. Great workability and the feel is outstanding.

  58. I needed a new gap wedge and decided to try this head design. I put this in a Wishon S2S stepless steel shaft. WOW! Distance control and accuracy is incredible. I now have PW, 8, 9 in this club and absolutely love them. Very beautiful looking design and they look better in person than what you see online. Just ordered the 7 iron. Should have the full set soon 😉

  59. Have to say the most classic looking head around. Had two single digit customers replace their Mizunos with the 575 using the Wishon stepless shafts. The purchases where based upon the demo results and the looks. It was the style/ looks that got their attention, and distance and control off the fairways that that sold them.
    Great job on this model
