Wilson Staff D300 Irons Review: You need to know
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 shots impact the face. 60g is positioned in toe and heel weight pads to maximise forgiveness and playability.

Wilson Staff D300 Irons Review: We say
Not many golfers will pick the D300’s from a club rack and fall head over heels for its head shape. But we promise the D300’s beauty unlike a supermodel lies in its performance not its looks. It’s certainly not a criticism when we say the heads a typical super game improvement design, and as such it struggles to score highly in both the forgiveness and looks camp. But what we do know is the D300 turned in a seriously strong performance for both amateur testers.
Simon was the biggest fan posting his second longest carry distance and joint fastest ball speed (tied with the TaylorMade M CGB and Ping G700) with the D300 in his hands. The D300’s have a natural ability to produce speed (which is partly down to the excellent lightweight KBS Tour 80 shaft) and distance, but its strength in preserving ball speeds on off centre hits is also second to none.

Wilson Staff D300 Irons Review: Verdict
If you’re looking for a new set of irons in 2018 and ideally want ultimate forgiveness, excellent distance and decent value for money the D300 should be on your shortlist. Get over the long, shiny head shape and the FLX Face tech and tons of toe and heel weighting come into their own.
