What we say...
The Superlight is Wilson Staff ’s latest crack at the driver market having performed so well in irons over the years and purely in performance terms it would seem they are onto something here.
It performed well across the board for everyone but it was particularly well liked by Ian, who said he could tell it was good quality and was right up there with the best on test in terms of feel and looks. Scott also loved the penetrating ball fl ight and suggested it was one of the most forgiving on test while James V also rated it highly.
However, James felt the sound was extremely loud and off -putting and this was also picked up by three of our other testers. Pro James said the shallow face was a turn-off for him and felt it wouldn’t be ideal for players with a steep attack as the likelihood of sky marks would be increased. The lightweight shaft was also a winner with Dave B, who said he felt as if he didn’t have to put as much eff ort into swinging to generate good clubhead speed.

Wilson’s latest DXi Superlight driver will certainly help golfers in need of more distance. At just 269g, it’s the lightest driver Wilson Staff has ever produced and around 50g less than some rivals, making it easier for golfers with slower swing speeds to generate more power. It’s forgiving too – the cup face technology expands the sweetspot for off-centre strikes. And for under £200 this is seriously good.
