Wilson launches D2000 club range

The new Wilson Staff D200 family of clubs includes a driver, fairway woods, hybrids and irons with an original Speed Sole concept. A key feature of the SuperLight D200 driver, which comes in 9°, 10.5° and 13° lofts, is a six-way adjustable hosel with three different loft settings and three draw settings in comparable loft to customise the launch angle and a left-to-right ball flight. New Reactive Face technology expands the size of the face to provide more forgiveness on heel and toe impacts and enhances MoI, while a reduction in thickness around the lower half of the face extends ball velocity on any mishit shots. RRP: £199.

The new D200 Fairway Woods (3 15°, 5 18° and 7 21°) have a distinctive rounded sole design that provides versatility in all playing conditions. Wilson says maximum distance from the tee, fairway or rough can be achieved thanks to the addition of a premium quality carpenter custom 455 maraging stainless steel face insert. RRP: £129 each.

The D200 Hybrids (2 17°, 3 19°, 4 21°* and 5 23°) also feature the carpenter custom 455 maraging steel face insert. The larger volume on stronger-lofted heads provides forgiveness on longer shots, while more face curvature translates to flatter faces on weaker-lofted heads for optimal gear effect and accuracy. RRP: £119 each.

The D200 irons feature an exclusive ‘Speed Sole Technology’ innovation, a thin face-to-sole transition creates a driver-like 234 ‘characteristic time’ and an average ball speed increase of more than 2mph compared with Wilson’s previous D100 models. Weight saved from the face and sole is redistributed to the heel and toe pods for a larger sweet spot and increased MOI (up five percent on the D100 irons). RRP: steel £349; graphite £429.

Doug Wright, business director of Wilson Golf in EMEA stated, “The new D200 clubs embody The Right Light technology with loft settings and weights distributed to optimise their trajectory and length from tee to green. They form a key part of the Wilson Staff Feel, Control and Distance (F-C-D) family of irons that matches club benefits with individual playing styles for the most consistent scoring associated with the brand.” More at: www.wilson-staff.com
