What we say...
Tech: Wilson’s FLX Face tech means just 26% of the face touches the head which Wilson say improves face deflection by 16% over the previous D200 model. More face flex equals more ball speed and with so much of the face deflecting you can expect high ball speeds wherever you impact.
We say: Not many golfers will pick the D300s from a rack and fall for its head shape. But the beauty lies in its performance, not its looks. It’s certainly not a criticism when we say the head’s a typical SGI design, and it focuses on forgiveness rather than looks. It turned in a seriously strong performance for all three testers. With an average ball speed 3mph faster and 6 yards further than the test average, the D300’s ability to produce speed (which is enhanced by an excellent lightweight KBS Tour 80 shaft) and distance, as well as preserve ball speed on off-centre hits, speaks for itself.
Verdict: If you’re looking for a new set of irons in 2017 and ideally want ultimate forgiveness, excellent distance and decent value for money, the D300 should be among your contenders. Trust us, get over the big long, shiny heads and the FLX Face tech and tons of toe and heel weighting will come into their own.
