Ahh. That's not good then. Sorry to hear that. They're a really nice brand.
Done a bit of research myself and based solely on what i see and the specs, here's my thoughts:
id say stay away form the Wilson Ci9's. They're very strong and the PW is only 44*!! As far as you'd hit them, you'd still probably have to carry 4 wedges.
The wilson FG forged Tours are more traditional with the PW being 47*. They also have a higher rating and seem more like a club that you could grow with rather than just improve your game and look elsewhere in a few years. The top line is a might smaller as well which, for me, is nice and clean. Personal preference though.
The yonex irons are , again , strong. 45* PW ensures you'll hit them a mile, but may be left wanting on shorter courses. The top line, for me again, is not really handsome enough and the overall look of the irons is just not my cup of tea.
Taylormade r9's are the hot irons these days. Taylormade is notorious for over length and strong irons. These are kind of an exception though. not as strong as some of the other clubs. the PW at 46* is acceptable but not GREAT. They would allow you to go 50*, 54*, 58* with perfect stepping. Rumor has it they absolutely LAUNCH the ball, so this may be your best bet. They're forgiving and workable as well as pretty nice looking from the top, having a very classic look.
Nike VR split cavity is pretty expensive here. It's less "technologically advanced" than the other irons you mentioned, having no composites, dampering or plastics in it. Great looks from the top with a very thin top line, but a smaller head than most. The PW is at a very standard 47* which is closer to traditional. This will definitely be something you can grow with and will enjoy for a while, but it may be harder to get used to and hit at first. Mis hits with this club will hurt like hell but the sweet spot will go exactly where you want it.
That's my 2 cents on the whole of it. Ultimately it's up to you. I'd find a large golf shop where you can take a swing with each of them and find the one you really really like. They all have their merits and shortcomings. If it were me and i had the money, i'd probably go with the Nikes. If it's a cheaper alternative you're going for, the Wilson FG forged will do just fine.
Hope i haven't thoroughly confused you.
