Hi Tom, I am getting ready to have a set of 575mmc irons built with .370 parallel Shafts. The plan is to have my builder use a 4.2 cpm sloped progression in the irons 4-PW. I am trying to fully understand how this system works. I know the basic concept of the length of the shaft and the heavier headweight causing more flex and load of a shaft when you swing. My question is when you assemble all the clubs and test the frequency, would they all have a similar frequency, or do they still maintain 4.2 cpm gaps as… Read more »

Hi Tom,

I searched through the comments and couldn’t find any question related to mine.

I have some scratches and wear on my irons and wonder if you recommend to use a tool to repair the grooves and face on my irons or is it not possible to do so?

Best regards

Hi Tom,

Just curious as I ordered a 575 model 54 degree loft wedge to fill in the the gap between my AW 50 loft degree muscle back wedge and my HM 58 degree loft wedge. I expected another muscle back wedge but I received an AW cavity back wedge which is not listed under the 575 table shown in website regarding clubs available in cavity back. Is there a technical explanation for this as perhaps the AW needed to be adjusted to get to the desired loft?

Tom, Sorry if this is a double post but my response to your last comment was not showing up, so I wasn’t sure if it went through. When I first started reading your response to my message, I thought if this is causing you to really have a think about it, then I must be in some deep trouble! But then, as always you come through and hit the nail on the head. I had noticed a higher flight than I am used to seeing.

Hi Tom! I had a question regarding irons in general (Though the 575’s will be purchased by myself here in the next couple weeks). I currently play a mid sized golf pride mcc grip and it has always felt a little on the small side. I stumbled across Jumbo Max grips and ordered a few different sizes to try. I like the larger diameter of the grips a lot, my misses are much smaller and I feel like its easier to control the face. The issue I am having is I seem to be striking the irons higher in the… Read more »

HI Tom, As a club builder and fitter of several of your iron designs, many of my clients are partial to the 575mmc and 565mc including myself. I have a set of the 575mmc in my bag today. When I ask for feed back of their performance, what I hear most often is that the face of the irons show abrasions to easily. Most OEM irons will show surface scuff marks over time. I know that could be due to the type on balls that are put into play and range balls too. Is there another metal material that could… Read more »

Hi Tom, As a lover of the 575 cavity back iron, I am curious about your vision or plans for the next generation of muscle/cavity back irons to replace the 575. As you may know from previous communications I believe your design of the hosel, low heel height and front to back and heel to toe curvature make this a sublime, balanced and standout design. Are your thoughts around improving aesthetics or actual design modifications. Id love to know what you are thinking. Thank you George

Hi Tom, I have been playing the 575s for about 18 months and have been very satisfied with the performance. I have a combination set (3 – 9 CB, PW – AW MB), but am considering changing the 7, 8 and 9 irons to MB as I like the slightly more compact head and narrower sole. So I’d just like to put forward my vote on head size if you do create a replacement design – ever so slightly smaller than the current dimensions would be great. Perhaps down to a 75 mm blade length? The current sole design is… Read more »

Dear Tom, I just got fitted for the 575mmc and 3 HM wedges. Fantastic golf clubs! I managed to add 4 mph and 10 yds on my 7 iron! But it’s the dispersion that’s amazing and the feel is unbeatable. I have the 575 up to a 5 iron and was thinking to have a 590 DIH as a 4 iron but I tried a 575 4 iron with graphite shaft and I might go with that. My next fitting I’m getting a 919 driver and 929 3 wood and I tried the 590 DIH 2 iron which is amazing!… Read more »

Hi Tom   Hope you and your team and your families are navigating these turbulent waters well.   I took up the game 6 years ago and was fortunate enough to have my second set of irons of yours (575mmc’s) fitted. They are tired now (especially the 8 iron which is my get-outta-jail weapon).   The shafts are still super so I’d like to order another set of heads – 3i – 9i.   Can I get these direct from yourself or do I have to find another club Fitter associated with Wishon Golf near me in Kent, UK. Unfortunately… Read more »

Dear Sir, Thank you for your fabulous contributions to golf! Back in the mid 90s I was fitted by Dana Upshaw with a set of Harvey Penick clubs. They had R400 shafts, D2 weight, 4-12 irons and D, 3, 5, 7, 9 woods. I had the 9 wood made for a specific hole a year or so after the initial set was made. Have to say the 7 and 9 woods were my favorites! One bounce from the 9 and it would stop dead on the most dangerous greens. Unfortunately, that set was stolen. I am in need of new… Read more »

Hi Tom, First and foremost, thank you for everything you’ve done to shed light on the truth in this industry. I’m a former club pro and modestly competitive amateur and without guys like you I’m not sure I’d have ever found my way out of the woods with regard to what I needed. I’m 6′ tall but have long arms and my wrist to floor is 34 inches. Every fitting I’ve ever had resulted in the recommendation of clubs that ultimately are too long for me. I started tinkering with cutting down my driver and that experiment went so well… Read more »

Hi Tom!

Im going to have a wishon set buid for me in april. Probably the 575s. I Love how rhey felt when i was hitting then a month ago

Im thinking about this; Will this modell soon be discontinued? Or will it live in for a couple of years more. For me One of the biggest advantages with wishon clubs is that tjey hang around for some time so of One club gets lost you can get One new that is exactly thesame.

Tom, I’ve played these clubs for the last 3 years. This season, I’ve had my clubs re-shafted , and let me tell you, they are absolutely incredible. The sound and consistency of them are incredible, and they have performed well in many different weather conditions. I’ve done countless tests against the top manufacturers of irons, and I can simply say these perform and look better than most. Thank you for creating such a beautiful club.

I absolutely love the feel of these irons. I built an MOI matched set of 4-PW in CB, AW in MB with N.S. Pro 1050 GH shafts and Wishon cord grips. My wrist to floor measurement is 37″, so +0.5″ is more comfortable for me in the shorter irons. However, I built 9-AW 0.5″ long, then used 3/8″ length increments for the longer irons. As a result, the 5 iron is standard 38″ long. This really helps with consistent center contact on the longer irons. Definitely something to consider with your clubfitter.

Tom, I should also add that having the weight port at the bottom of the hosel bore really helps with the MOI matching process when using the 3/8″ length increments. I needed to add 8-10g of weight to some of the less lofted heads to get the very close MOI match using the Auditor MOI Speed Match machine from Golfmechanix. I used the 6g tungsten weights in the port plus 2g or 4g brass weights in the shaft tip. For those readers not familiar with building to a desired MOI match, the process is fairly simple once you have determined… Read more »

I would say that the Club masters associated with Wishon clubs are very professional and at the top of there craft. Thanks for the 565 series, I had them fit for me in 2017 (Musselman’s Golf) with the 919 woods. I’m very interested in the 519 and the 575 series

Completely agree with Tom. Keith fitted me into a set of 771csi and I’ve been completely in love with these irons. I’ve been playing them for about 4 years now. I’m not sure what part Keith enjoys the most. Fitting or building the clubs. Either way this guys knows his stuff. BTW… Keith paired my 771’s with Aerotech shafts. Awesome combo. Give it some thought.

Keith at Precision Fit Golf in Kerrville is great. Visited Jan 15, 2020. I took up the hobby of making my own clubs several years ago with mixed results, but had fun while learning. For me the learning process was more important than the potential to save money. You will NOT come out money ahead making your own clubs. Just go get fit properly. If you are in South Texas or the Hill Country, Keith is the man. After several learning experiences, pleased with my most recently assembled 575MMC irons.

Why are these 2 7 irons different?

Kevin

Hi Tom, I’ve had 560mc irons and 555 irons. Loved them both, and I still have Wishon wedges in the bag. I’m now considering a set of 575 irons. Would the DG AMT white shaft be a viable option in these?. I’m not sure if the AMT shaft ‘effect’ (marketing gimmick or worthwhile?) of More penetrating flight in the shorter irons is something you have already thought about when you designed the weight distribution in the heads. And therefore, a standard set of Wishon stepless steel shafts Might be absolutely fine. Thanks.

I purchased a full set of brand-new 575 muscle heads a year ago for my junior and have not fitted with any shafts because they have been hung on the wall in the dining room — simply an art to look at everyday.

Well that’s really nice to hear you like the design of the 575MB irons that much !! Never thought that anything I designed would graduate from an implement of the game to a work of art! But I will take the complement and thank you very much!!

Hi Tom,

I’m still really enjoying my MB, CB combo set that I’ve had nearly 2 years.

I only go up to the 4iron in the CB. Is there a way to get a 5 iron trajectory with a 3 iron carry distance?

Would like to say thank-you for designing a beautiful club. Grew up with my fathers old clubs, 1977 Staff Tour blades and Macgregor Tourney M85 irons. I have a set of 565 and my gamers are the 575. both play and feel like the old clubs with more forgiveness with the ability to move the ball left and right. Have built a few sets for friends that hit mine and they love them. Also love the 775 hybrid, built one to 5 wood length to fill in gaps, a cannon. Keep up the great work and thank for you dedication… Read more »

Hi tom, i acquired a set of pre-owned 575mmc 4-pw, i love them, aesthetically they plesse my eye when standing over them, i play off of 19 and was told they were not for me, i didnt listen. I feel very confident whipping a ball out of any lie with the compact non bulky club head. My question is, where can i get a 575 gap wedge in ireland? Or can i get it sent to me?

Hi Tom, huge fan been playing and making your clubs for over 15 years. I never got a chance to get a full set of 550 blades (possibly the most beautiful golf clubs ever made). I was on a hiatus from golfing and building when they were phased out, and I only have a partial set now. Any chance you still have a set sitting around?
Thanks for everything

Aaron Thanks very much for your kind complements. That’s very nice of you to say that and I appreciate it very much. Sorry to say that none of the 550C or M are around as that model was discontinued in the later 2000s to make way for their successor, the 555’s. 555’s to me were better than the 550’s because the 555’s had a better sole grind with more front to back radius than the 550’s. At any rate the 555’s were dropped to make way for the current 575’s which debuted some 5-6 yrs ago I think so there… Read more »

Thanks Tom, I haven’t seen a Wishon club yet that hasn’t played brilliantly as intended. I made a set of 575 blades for my brother and they are indeed excellent. Also I made batches of 752TCs back in the day, they were my go to model for beginners and intermediates. Excellent golf clubs. In retrospect I just found the 550 blade to be the most aesthetic design of a blade ever, and I’m a blade purist, in that that I enjoy the challenge of hitting a long iron blade properly, almost as much as scoring. Alas I am a tiny… Read more »

Tom,
I just ordered the 575s with the 5&6 in the cavity and the 7-PW in the MB. My thought process in doing this was to have a little forgiveness with the longer irons. I guess my question would be is this common and what are the pros and cons?
My club maker is Terry Sloan from Hazel Green, AL and is a firm believer in your products. This is my second set as I am laying down my 752tc irons and upgrading. Thank you for making great top of the line products.

JIM The 585HI was a driving iron design, made in a #2, 3, 4 and 5 iron configuration. They were introduced in around 2007 if memory serves me well and stayed in the line until 2010. The were investment cast from 431 stainless that we heat treated to make the alloy a little more bendable for loft/lie fitting changes. They were not a high COR design. That came much later in the driving iron I designed in 2015 called the 590DIH. The 585 were a wide sole design with a little bit more shallow face height than most 2, 3,… Read more »

Tom – regarding the 585HI, I have a 24 degree with an Aldila NV65 S shaft (a neutral shaft that I also have in my fairway wood and have had in a previous driver). While I hit my irons (the excellent 575MMC’s, by the way) generally quite straight or with a slight fade, I have noticed a significant tendency for the 585HI to draw. Was there any draw bias designed into the 585HI?

The 575’s are great irons. Manufacturing quality and finish is second to none. After a couple months of play down to 2 or less chunked or thin strikes per round. Confident with 4 iron over a fairway wood. Also have 919 Driver and S2R putter. Can’t go wrong with a Wishon product!
