• Cutting-edge design at heart of new Wilson D300 family
• D300 irons boast three key features, including FLX Face tech
• Driver is one of the fastest and most adjustable on the market
Following from the award-winning D200 family, the range features driver, fairway woods, hybrid and irons – all aiming to produce maximum distance and forgiveness and confidence at address.
With more major victories with its irons than any other brand (61), the new Wilson D300 irons have three key features.
The first, and most important, is FLX Face Technology, which reduces contact points between the thin face and and clubhead to generate greater clubhead speed and distance.
The second are Power Holes, refined from the C200 iron models. Filled with TE031 Urethane, the Power Holes extend through and around the face to provide a distinctive feel and sound.
A final feature are the special heel and toe weight pods (total 60g) positioned on the edge of the clubhead, increasing moment of inertia (MOI) for a deeper centre of gravity and more forgiveness.
The Wilson D300 driver is now one of the lightest and fastest adjustable drivers on the market.
The reason for this? A new aerodynamic designed head shape coupled with Micro Vortex Generators, reducing drag force to increase clubhead speed.
Green Means Go! Fast Fit Technology allows players to make easy adjustments without having to remove the clubhead from the shaft, while Right Light Technology, with an interchangeable weight, lets players swing faster with the same effort.
A six-way adjustable hosel from eight to 14 degrees and three adjustable weights also lets players choose their ideal launch angle, ball speed and spin rate.
The Wilson D300 fairway woods, like the driver, boasts a similar aerodynamic look along with a Carpenter Custom 455 stainless steel face insert helping to achieve greater ball speed and distance.
Featuring a progressive head design, the Wilson D300 hybrid has increased volume for stronger lofts and more forgiveness on longer shots.
It also has the Micro Vortex Generators to create faster movement through the air and the same Carpenter Custom 455 stainless steel face insert found on the fairway woods.
“Having achieved great success with the D200 range, we wanted to push the innovation boundaries further and the new Wilson D300 range has done just that,” said Doug Wright, Global Commercial Director of Wilson Golf.
“Introducing the FLX Face and Green Means GO! Technologies into the distance range adds a new dimension altogether and the results are exceptional.”
