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.

If you're happy to hit it straight, these are the clubs for you. It is difficult to draw or fade a ball, and they don't generate (for me, at least) lots of spin. But I'm better off with an 8-iron in my hand than a 7-iron, and they are both one club longer and very forgiving.

I am 66 with a 14 handicap and I recently purchased a set of used D100's. I play lots of different irons each year (sort of a hobby of mine) and these are the best irons I have come across in a very long time, in fact they are so good they unseated the Mizuno JPX-EZ irons from my bag. They are long and straight, in fact so straight that I would say this is their only short coming -- it is difficult to work the ball with them they want to hit it straight so much. With regard to feel, I would say they are as good as my Titleist AP1 712's were and they are longer. All in all, I'd say these are some of the best game improvement irons on the market. I can't wait to try the D200's.

Absolutely RIDICULOUS in terms of easy to hit/forgiving (and I'm a terrible iron player) wonderful feel, distance, I hit a 9 iron 152 yds yesterday, which is unheard of from me (that's usually a 6 IF I hit it clean)! Lol
