The “D” in Wilson’s D300 irons stands for distance, and company engineers say the clubs provide plenty of that through the employment of FLX Face technology.
That advancement minimizes contact points between the face and the clubhead – and maximizes face flex upon impact – in an effort to generate greater clubhead speed and distance.
So-called “power holes” filled with TE031 urethane surround the entire face of each iron, and they are designed not only to provide room for it to flex, for that much-coveted extra distance, but also for weight to be moved to the heel and toe for increased forgiveness. Because they are visible to the naked eye, Wilson’s global innovation director, Michael Vrska, describes them as “visible technology” and says they are also made to improve sound and feel.
“These clubs are easy to hit and get into the air, and they go longer and straighter than the D200s that came before them,” he adds.
We spoke with Wilson’s Director of Golf Club Innovation, Mr. Jon Pergande, on our GolfBetter Podcast to discuss the D300 irons in depth. You can listen to the podcast on the Soundcloud link below, on our website or subscribe to the free GolfBetter Podcast on iTunes.
