The Wilson Staff D200 irons have been honed to increase speed and distance.
The face of the staff D200 boasts a Characteristic Time (CT) of 234, which is not dissimilar to a number of drivers in the market today.
As a result ball speed is increased by 2mph in comparison with the previous generation Wilson Staff D100 irons.
This is achieved using what Wilson calls Speed Sole Technology, creating a thin face-to-sole transition, allowing the iron face to flex, especially at lower impact locations, contributing to what Michael Vrska, Global Director of Innovation at Wilson Golf calls:
Wilson Staff’s biggest advancement in distance-related technology yet.
This distance is made playable for the higher handicap players that these clubs are aimed at by the inclusion of weight pods in the heel and toe of the irons. The pods help to expand the sweet spot and increase the MOI by 5% over the D100 for increased forgiveness.
Distance is also added by the use of the premium UST Mamiya Elements Chrome shaft for players opting for graphite, which optimises the spring like effect by promoting an efficient transfer of energy from the butt to tip of the shaft. This has the effect of maximising ball speed and reducing ball dispersion.
