A golfing legend has returned - Wilson Dynapower is back and like all major equipment manufacturers' recent launches it features a certain material. You guessed it, carbon.
Nearly 70 years after Wilson Sport Goods first re-wrote the rule book around power and distance in iron play, Wilson Golf is now introducing an all-new Dynapower range for 2023 and this time adding woods into the equation.
It could be said that Dynapower revolutionised golf equipment with a new approach to weight distribution on its iron sets from 1956 onwards, and the rebirth of the famous franchise includes the first Wilson Tour spec fully adjustable driver and distance inspired irons, plus new fairway woods and hybrids.
“We first changed the game of golf seven decades ago and it’s time to do it again.”
Tim Clarke, President of Wilson Golf.
The new Dynapower Driver is one of the most adjustable drivers ever created by Wilson and comes available in two head options: Carbon and Titanium.
Wilson Dynapower Drivers
The new driver comes with a host of custom fitting combinations from swing weight, flex, shaft, loft & lie – that enable golfers to find the perfect club off the tee, depending on preferred shot shape and ball flight.
To create the Dynapower drivers, Wilson have employed advanced Artificial Intelligence methods in which thousands of clubhead aesthetics were analysed using the same computer design process that produced the impressive Wilson D9 wood range.
Simulating a wide variety of data variations to produce the most effective design possible, it resulted in the deployment of exclusive PKR2 Technology on both Carbon and Titanium heads, providing a dynamic face thickness optimised over an extended area of the clubface for fast ball speeds and maximum forgiveness on off-centre hits.
A new dynamic 6-way adjustable hosel enables fitters to make quick shaft changes, while golfers can benefit from easy one-click launch and spin adjustments.
Aimed at the avid golfer looking to work the ball off the tee, the lightweight Carbon composite panels on the crown and sole, plus a 12g weight in the back of the Dynapower Carbon driver moves the Centre of Gravity low and forward creating a lower spinning driver head with neutral to fade ball flight tendencies.
Aimed more at the aspirational player looking to maximise distance with a straighter ball flight, the Titanium head model incorporates a 16g rear weight that produces a high MOI driver with a deep, rear Centre of Gravity delivering a forgiving higher launch angle with a neutral to draw bias.
The Dynapower Carbon Driver is available from early March 2023 at an RRP of £420/€480; and the Dynapower Titanium driver at an RRP of £370/€420.
Wilson Dynapower Irons
Featuring Wilson's thinnest ever iron face and engineered primarily for the aspirational 10+ handicap golfer, the Dynapower Irons - featuring a distinctive Wilson red colourway for men and teal for women - have been designed to appeal aesthetically to single digit players looking for more distance and occasional mishit management in their game.
They feature variable thickness for each section of the face to provide a larger sweet spot, especially the centre-to-toe area where approximately 85% of shots are hit.
Using advanced Artificial Intelligence methods in designing irons for the first time, thousands of clubhead data variations and aesthetics were analysed to produce the most effective and pleasing shape possible in these new irons. The resulting design then incorporated the pioneering Wilson Power Hole 3.0 technology to deliver maximum ball speed across the face of each club.
The Dynapower irons also feature heel-to-toe weighting for a higher MOI and a lower centre of gravity design to deliver stability on off-centre hits that also fuels higher launch and steeper descent angles.
The Dynapower irons are available from early March 2023 at an RRP of £700/€800 (5-SW) for steel shafts and £800/€900 (5-SW) for graphite shafts. Both shaft options come in right and left-handed options. The 4-iron and GW are also available by request.
Wilson Dynapower Fairways and Hybrids
Completing the range for 2023 are new fairway woods and hybrids. Designed using the same AI techniques as the driver, they feature a high MOI head design and advanced Tour-inspired shape for full confidence off the tee and deck.
The stylish fairway woods incorporate a 12g rear weight that delivers a forgiving high launch angle and ball trajectory. Testing by Tour players during the development of the clubs has resulted in a flatter profile for a clean setup behind the ball.
The Dynapower Hybrid features variable face thickness and internal weighting to position the Centre of Gravity low and back to produce an easy-to-launch ball flight that is more forgiving. The Tour-preferred flatter profile is also incorporated for confidence at setup.
The fairway woods come in three loft options 15˚ (3-wood), 18˚ (5-wood) & 21˚ (7-wood) and will be available in early March with an RRP of £220, the Dynapower Hybrid is available in 3 (19˚), 4 (22˚), 5 (25˚) and 6 (28˚) club/loft options and has an RRP of £195/€220.
