SINGLE LENGTH IRONS

 

Wishon’s new single length iron design concept EQ1-NX offers same length and high COR low loft iron characteristics while adding many new performance enhancing features to mark a definite step forward in game improvement iron design.



Features:

    • Enabled by the new 2-piece hollow body design, the Center of Gravity moves progressively through the set from lowest and most rear located on the #5 iron to highest and most forward located on the GW and SW to achieve more consistent shot shape and shot height for each iron in the set
    • The hollow body design throughout the set increases the MOI of each head by removing all mass from the inside of the head to be distributed all around the CG.  The hollow body construction also enables the CG progression and uniform impact sound between the high COR and conventional COR heads in the set 
    • Low number irons are better matched with their loft to CG position to achieve preferred shot shape/height and allow a wider range of players to be able to effectively hit the #5 and 6 irons to fly and carry with proper distance gaps
    • Traditional GW and SW profile shapes are combined with milled faces and a custom sole grind make the wedges a great choice even if they were standalone wedges and not part of the single length design 
    • 275g head weight with hosel weight bore allows assembly to any single length between 35.5” and 37.5” while still being able to achieve a reasonable range of swingweight/MOI (depending on shaft weight and grip weight)
    • Available in RH in #5-9, PW, GW, SW, LW. Available in LH in #5-9, PW, GW, SW,

Nope. I updated the first single length iron design I ever did (Sterling) when I designed the EQ1-NX and did everything that I learned from the Sterlings that I needed/wanted to do. So there is nothing I can do better on the EQ1 clubs so it will remain as it is for a long time, I suspect. Thanks very much for your interest,

Tom, I have the EQ1-NX 6 – 9 irons hand picked at 275.5 grams giving a swing weight of D0.7, however, the 9i although marked at 275.4g was actually 278g. I am looking at adding an 8g counter weight which will lower the swing weight from D2.0 to D0.4. Is there any performnce difference than if it had come in at the ordered head weight of 275.5g?

RAY First of all since you requested and paid for a hand select for weight, you should contact Diamond to tell them what you got and have them send a replacement that you ask them to actually weigh instead of picking it by the weight on the sticker. I am sorry for this, normally the factory doesn’t make this mistake. But really, since you paid to have the head weights the same, you should get that. To answer your question though, I am not a fan of counter weighting simply to trick the scale into reading a particular swingweight. When… Read more »

RAY The matter of ending up with a swingweight that is higher than what you want in the assembly is a big problem with no good solution. It’s easy to add weight to a head but very difficult to remove weight from a head. In fact the only way to remove weight from a head is to grind it off. With cast stainless irons that are polish finished, as long as you have proper buffing wheels and experience doing that, you can grind weight off and restore the finish so everything is good. But if the head in need of… Read more »

A 2g change in head weight is so small that very, very few golfers would ever notice the difference before or after that small of a weight change.

Hi Tom,
I just purchased a used set of EQ1s. They are all standard loft and lie but would you recommend I still go get a custom fit? If so, is it preferred to get fitted at a Wishon club fitter or would any reputable club fitter be able to perform a proper fitting?

Any clubmaker would be able to change any of the specifications of the irons. What you need to be cognizant of in whether the irons fit you would be the length, the lie angles, the shaft model/weight/flex, the grip type and size, the swingweight. Any experienced clubmaker should be able to analyze you and address those things.

As they say in London at Underground stations, “Mind the Gap!”

You should also pay attention to the carry distances you get with each club, considering whether or not you need to tweak any lofts to maintain proper gapping between clubs.

Otherwise, I echo Tom’s point, and pile on by saying it is critical to have any set of irons properly fitted to you and your game (along the parameters he mentioned).

ROB 431 stainless is almost never, ever plated because it is almost always passivation treated at the factories to fully prevent any possibility of rust forming from outside pollutants that may come in contact with the heads. Thus the conventional mode of finishing any 431 head is through polishing, which can be done in different finishes including mirror polish. So the shiny finish is simply polishing of the surface. All mirror polished stainless heads will dull out over time, a condition which most golfers just live with when it happens. However, there are a handful of companies in the US… Read more »

MARC The belief that an incorrect shaft flex could result in more slicing or hooking is very, very over exaggerated and not really true. If a golfer uses a much too flexible shaft, ONLY IF HE HAS A LATER TO VERY LATE RELEASE can the shaft come into impact curved forward more than if the shaft were not as flexible for the golfer’s swing. Early to midway release players experience the shaft completing its forward bending BEFORE impact so by the time the club gets to the ball, the shaft has rebounded back from being curved forward.

Too light of a head feel and the golfer swings too quick, moves around too much, ends up with very inconsistent ball striking results. Too heavy and the golfer struggles to swing within his best timing and rhythm as well. What the right head feel for any golfer ends up being can pretty much only be determined by trial and experimentation with a test club built to the golfer’s best/desired length, with the right… Read more »

Thanks for your response, it certainly is really useful.

Over time, that’s how most of the club specs evolved. One of the fascinating ones was the FLEX of a shaft. Making the shafts to different… Read more »

Hey Tom, question about distance dispersion.

I’ve been playing EQ1-NX irons and hybrids for a couple seasons, love them. This year, my ball striking has made drastic improvements, and as I’ve gotten much more accurate left/right, I’m noticing more than the occasional “hot one” that flies an extra 10-15 yards.

Matt There can be a few reasons for an occasional “hot one” but it is true that in any iron that is made with a less than thick face, meaning both high COR face irons as well as hollow irons with conventional steel material for the faces, it can be possible for conditions of the path and angle of attack and point of impact to result in the face being flexed inward a little more. And that in turn can increase the ball speed, which increases the distance for that shot. ALso factoring in this is the golfer’s clubhead speed.… Read more »

Ah, in simple terms, whatever model / style of clubhead, you’re hitting the CoP spot – the Center of Percussion .

Tour PLayer
Center of Mass (CoM), aka center of gravity (CG), is more pertinent to impact performance from a clubhead. CoM is the intersection of all the possible balance points of the clubhead, and you are right, it is one tiny little pinpoint inside the head. Impact directly in line with the CoM will allow the head to remain the most stable through impact and maximize the energy transfer from the head to the ball.
