Tom, what’s the standard swingweight of the 565MC irons? Any thoughts on selecting this when buying irons?

Is it possible to get the 3 Iron? It used to be in stock couple of years ago

Thanks for the swift reply. If I can find the 3 iron somewhere online with some stock-shaft, I can get my clubbuilder to pull it and build the 3 iron to the same specs as the 3 iron I already have right? I am trying to get a second set of irons that matches the ones I already have. I bought them in 2019 with the stiff S2S Red 110 shaft. Did that one change in more than just looks since 2019?

If I may make a recommendation to get a Di595 in the 21 degree loft to meet your needs for a 3 iron, the offset is minimal, the feel is very good, as is the performance. You can have your clubfitter get the right shaft for you as well. A shaft to match your irons or a shaft designed for driving irons/ hybrids.

Below is a pic of the actual colour of the irons recieved. Please advice urgently. It is misleading to say the least.

Hi Tom

Would you ever consider making single length irons using a forging techniques?

This would be really cool.

Kind regards

Have you ever considered incorporating tungsten in your forged iron design??

Thanks

All the best to you.

565MC are great golf clubs; I’ve played AP2 from the beginning through 718. I absolutely love these 565s. They’re more forgiving and still a forged head. Best of both worlds (+0.2 HC)

Hello Tom, I have purchased the 565 irons 2 years ago, I have been very happy with the clubs however the grooves seem to be wearing off and some iron faces have bad nicks and the top line on some clubs are banged up( I take good care of my clubs) is this due to soft metal?

Tom,

Could you comment on the difference (if any) between the sole grind of the 560mc and 565mc. I am a bit steep and can take some decent divots. I really liked the 560mc’s, found them quite forgiving…they were ok through the turf for me. Wondering if the 565’s might offer a little more relief on the leading edge? It’s hard to tell from the pics.

Thanks – Chad

Hi Tom and others, I’m currently playing minimalist golf and plan to have Bob make me three irons to go with a hybrid, driver and putter. I have some ideas on my ‘perfect’ set makeup, but would appreciate experienced input. I’ve been experimenting with clubs and since I fairly regularly use my 8 iron for punch shots I am thinking of AW, 8, 6, (775) 3H to join a driver and putter. I play my driver up and down the shaft to be able to (roughly) drive to a distance/ green and plan to use the hybrid the same way.… Read more »

Thanks Tom.
I’ll take you comments on board. I have been tossing up between a #2 and #3 hybrid for some time, currently playing #1 and #2 hybrids rather than woods.

Hi Tom I have recently been fitted for the 565 irons. I am a 17 year old and I’m also 6’6’’ my average 5 iron swing speed in 90-95 mph. I was using mizuno jpx ez cast iron before with regular length shafts which I can keep up and play with anyone I want but I made the decision to invest in your irons fitted by Rick McKinney. With my current bag I am a 12-14 handicap being new to the game (I started playing serious 2 months ago when I started working at craigowan golf club). I got a… Read more »

Tom, I had my 1st set of Wishon clubs fitted for me almost 2 years ago using the 755pc irons. I had a golf index of 22 at the time. With lots of time on the range and course I am now down to a 14. I was wondering if my golf game would see more improvement if I went to the 565MC forged irons. Sometimes I feel like I struggle coming out of the rough more than I should be with the 755pc. But since I am new to the game I wanted to bring the question to you.… Read more »

Hi Tom, My bags consists of all Wishon products and I would guess they are at least 10 years old. Driver 919 THI, 4 wood 949mc, 550 MB/CB 4-pw, pfc tour wedges and Smooth Series 6 putter. MY HCP is 8.6 and I feel like I still give away a lot of strokes around the green and by not being consistent with my 4 wood or 4 iron on long par 4 or par 5S. What are your thoughts on how much technology has changed/improved clubs over the past 10 years? Should I consider upgrading some or all my clubs?… Read more »

Thanks Tom! That was very helpful. I will be looking for a new Wishon fitter soon!

last question, I forgot to mention I have a 3 and 5 wood (Wishon 515 fairway) as I adjust my bag for gaps I was thinking I might add one or both back. Can you share your comments on those and if you think I would benefit on upgrading or if I should just keep playing them and pick up a couple of utility clubs to replace my 4\5 irons.

Hi Tom , Hope you are well and enjoying life.
I have been studying your books and videos for a while now , absolutely fascinating.
I am interested in getting all my clubs checked and then either altered or being fitted for a complete new set of Wishon clubs . some club fitters are saying no point in measuring MOI unless I have them BioMatched as well what is your opinion on the BioMatch system that puts weight in the butt end ….seems counter productive to me ?

He recommended I try and find the MOI on my own first by hitting clubs and using markers and adding weight etc till sweet spot every time…till I get a tighter dispersion of shots..I will let you know how I get on.

Hi Tom, some more advise please. Would the playing characteristics of a White 610-IR-S with a tip trim of 1″ be similar to a TT Dynalite 105 gm steel shaft? And of a Blue 607-WD-S with a tip trim of 1″ with a Aldila NV Green 65? (Except for their respective weights, of course). Thanks and with best regards. Pavan

Hi Tom, I’m considering buying a set of irons and have a couple of questions – (1) what is the major difference between 565 and 575 irons and why would one choose one over the other (2) most wedges have little or no offset but your wedges have a 2mm offset..any advantages or reason (3) some forged irons are made of DT-4 steel…what would the difference be between clubs made of this material and say 1035 or 1025 carbon steel. Thanks. Pavan.

Having said that. Is the 771CSI Iron a noticeable upgrade from the 770 CFE with the White 610 R Shaft I currently have ?

If there is no discernible difference what would you recommend ?

Thank you.

I have had the 770 ‘s since those first came out and got the Wishon “White” shafts put in as soon as they first came out. I have been extremely happy with them and want to move up to the next level. As a Leftie I may have to upgrade to a different brand sorry I am too old to switch .. Still have the Driver and Woods in my bag…

Hi Tom, We recently spoke regarding my 550c irons. I did increase the lofts -2 and raised my lie 2 degrees and picked up the few yards I had lost so now my yardage’s are back to normal in my mind. I love the 550c. But they are also wearing and I am thinking about the 565 irons. My question….are the 565c irons a similar length to the 550c? One of the things l like best is the length and forgiveness of the 550 while maintaining workability. I don’t like the shorter head “players” clubs on the market. Are the… Read more »

Hello: this may seem like a dumb question: are the 565s and 575s one solid piece of metal? i’m confused by all of the clubs calling themselves ‘forged’ but they are two pieces of forged metal welded together. then usually injected with foam

Tom Wishon

Reply to  Richard

Richard Not a dumb question all all because you really need to see the forging process to better understand how it works. On that here’s a link to a video that shows the actual process of forging to take a hot bar of steel to a raw forging ready for all the machining steps to turn it into a clubhead – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUfvAjAbxfI The 565 and 575 are forged from one piece of steel, just like what is in the video I pasted the link for. One round bar of carbon steel is heated to soften it and then hit/hammered (forged)… Read more »

Hi Tom: I hope retirement is treating you well. I just switched back to Wishon after a detour I should have never taken to try Cobra. My game completely fell apart and I instantly regained strike and flight control once switching back to Wishon. (I’ll not make that mistake again). The 565’s (5-PW standard lie/loft and length w Recoil 807 regular shafts) are my favorite. Thank you for putting together such great products. Your legacy is being well maintained at Diamond!!! Just out of curiosity, which hybrids might you recommend? My biggest concern are the paint chips and durability on… Read more »

Nice to hear that the 565’s were able to ‘rescue’ you from temptation that you were subjected to !!

Dear sir im a ex tour player and have recently started getting serious again , i have noticed that i play very well with light heads and stiff shafts , im now taking over the teaching shoo and range at a famous golf course in Spain and would like too know if you have a club fitter who could do a demo day and also fit me up with the correct set

Reply to  Dave

DAVE There is only one sure way to get what you want in terms of a light head feel with stiff shafts. You’d need to have at least one or two of the clubs that have the correct head weight to shaft flex feel to be disassembled to note exactly what the length, the head weight, and the shaft’s stiffness measurements are. From that it would be easy to determine if the head weight specs of the 565MC irons could be used to get you what you want and a reference could be made to current shafts to find one… Read more »
