The Wilson D200 fairway wood gives you everything you want in a light package at an affordable price.

The face looks quite long heel to toe as Wilson has increased the width low down. The 17-4 Stainless Steel head uses a Carpenter Custom 455 maraging steel face insert to create a little more ball speed than before.

This it seems to do well and the sound and feel was pleasing, solid and on a par with the best fairways in the market.

The resulting forgiveness was pretty good, although the insert face arrangement means at the outer limits the performance is not as good as it could be, so hit it out of the middle!

The footprint of the head at address is quite large, which I like, and the rounded head shape just manages to avoid getting pointy as the deep design draws the trailing edge of the club back.

This moves the Centre of Gravity (CG) further back and therefore this is a very easy club to get going. The flight wants to go high very quickly, so if you need that type of high launching trajectory for soft landings then this is the club for you.

If you are a fader of the ball then this will appeal to you too, but others may find the face looks a bit too closed at address. It still flies straight, but visually some may prefer a more neutral look.

What everyone should like is the light feel of the club as the light head combines with the excellent UST Elements Chrome shaft that is just 49 grams with a 25 gram Golf Pride grip.

If you are a slower swing speed player who needs some help getting the ball in the air and likes the look at address, then one or more of the three head lofts of 15°, 18° or 21° will be ideal for you.

Wilson D200 Fairway

Certainly when it comes for value for money then the Wilson D200 fairway is probably the leader in the clubhouse as it has one of the lowest RRPs for a new club we have seen. The components are all good quality, so it will really come down to whether the set up will suit you.
