Wilson Staff is overhauling its super game-improvement line for 2017, moving on from the D200 line to the D300 line, integrating technology first found in the C200 irons into a new set that offers forgiveness and distance.
The FLX Face technology from the C200 irons come through into the D300 irons, minimizing the contact points between the face and the body of the iron. There are what's dubbed Power Holes that allow the face to flex at impact to impart more distance and forgiveness throughout the face with improved moment of inertia rating. The Power Holes are filled with TE031 Urethane for improved feel and sound.
The technology hasn't simply carried over from the C200 line, but it has been refined for the Distance player. Wilson has three categories of player: Feel (a low-handicap player), Control (mid-handicappers looking for some technology improvements) and Distance (super game-improvement for higher handicappers).
The stock shafts for the D300 irons are the KBS Tour 80 steel and Matrix Speed Rulz A-Type 54-gram graphite shafts.
The Wilson Staff D300 irons are available Jan. 23 in a set of 4-9 irons, PW and GW for both right- and left-handed players at $800 for steel and $900 for graphite.
