Read through Wilson's description of the D-100 irons and you will see they are targeted to a 'distance player.' Once you've tried them, it is hard to disagree.
Simple, large and long is what we will remember from testing the irons. The large head design and thick top line will inspire confidence in even the most timid of players. You get the feeling looking down on the club that you could almost strike three golf balls on the face, and with the forgiveness offered in the design, chances are each ball would end up near the hole!
Wilson have continued their recent strong shaft offerings in the D-100 iron by pairing it with a True Temper SL85 Uniflex shaft. The shaft plays soft like a regular shaft but has the stability of a stiffer shaft, increasing trajectory. It is designed to "appeal to the largest range of golfers" and we think it is a solid addition to the set, taking the guess-work of shaft choice out of the equation for the player looking for a game-improvement set.
That soft performance of the shaft is mirrored in feel at impact. The large face is soft and forgiving, and with little effort the ball soars very high and long.
With tonnes of space and cavity behind the clubface, players can feel confident that even a slight mishit will result in a solid shot. Whilst the cavity does protrude behind the topline on some of the longer irons, its dark colour means it should not distract you like some game-improvement irons do.
All in all, a very solid, simple, oversized iron that will help someone looking to gain a little more distance with a good level of forgiveness.
