Following on the success of last year’s C200 with the FLX Face, Wilson has expanded the concept to the Wilson Staff D300 irons.
The FLX Face system uses “Power Holes,” which surround the face to provide room for the face to flex and for weight to be moved to the heel and toe to maximize MOI and forgiveness. Don’t worry about the holes filling up with dirt, though. The Power Holes are filled with TE031 Urethane. This, Wilson says, offers improved feel, with a “crisp and recognizable sound of distance and accuracy.”
“In addition to the FLX FACE™ technology that was introduced in last year’s groundbreaking C200 irons, the D300 irons build and improve upon distance, forgiveness and feel. C200 Irons,” said Michael Vrska, Global Innovation Director of Wilson Golf. “FLX FACE™ and Power Holes have been refined specifically for the ‘D’ or ‘Super Game Improvement’ player to provide significant distance and accuracy improvements.”
With products like these, and the exit of Nike from the hard goods market, I think there is a real opening for Wilson Staff to return to its glory days as one of golf’s premier club makers.
